Quote du jour

The most basic problem with "I don't believe in labels" talk is that it is incandescently stupid. "Label" is another word for "word." Everything we associate with civilization, decency, and progress depends on labels. If we cannot label something poisonous, people will die. Similarly, labeling policies, or politicians or commentators, with ideological or party identifiers helps make clear their underlying assumptions and values.
-Jonah Goldberg

  2. Not sure there was a game last night. I was on a plane at 39,000'. The pilot sounded like a Denver fan, so I couldn't trust anything that liar had to say.

    If I didn't see the game, there's a good chance it didn't happen.
