    I know why I'm here, and it sure as hell isn't for JMS.

    • That's a relief since he's never posted here and as far as anybody knows he doesn't read here.

      <moderator> Radhil, please don't call anybody names here, even so-called mild ones.

      Everybody, remember to be polite. </moderator>

        Crichton, more erratic? I'd say he started that way. Still, the man usually has some decent ideas. Maybe I'll give this book a shot.

        Don't do that dude. I understand the sentiment but it's a poor gut reaction to say that. At best. At worst, you're completely wrong.

          His older books were, then they got better, and then around Airframe they got really confusing again. Bah, they're all nothing more than movie pitches in novel format, anyways. I hear that this Next one is just all over the place.

          Sorry, but I don't remember Sheridan or anybody threatening the Shadows with peace.
          Recently, there was a reckoning. It occurred on November 4, 2014 across the United States. Voters, recognizing the failures of the current leadership and fearing their unchecked abuses of power, elected another party as the new majority. This is a first step toward preventing more damage and undoing some of the damage already done. Hopefully, this is as much as will be required.

              When you have jackasses eagerly cheering on for the death of Bush / Cheney, for example, it's time you do a little eating of your own.
              Update on the world of HuffingtonPost, White House press secreatary Tony Snow revealed today that he would be taking time off from his job, as he will be having a growth removed from his stomach. And the HuffPo posters expressed they would hold him in their thoughts and prayers.

              Oops, I'm wrong. Many of them did the exact opposite. Quite a few gave him wishes of DEATH.

              Funny, I just didn't see the conservatives giving Elizabeth Edwards the same treatment 24 hours ago.

              • I think it's a matter of politeness versus assininity, not a conservative/liberal thing. There's decent and boorish people on both sides. No reason to let reason get in the way of a good prejudice, though.

                      Yet, it's the liberals who do it so often.

                      And when I say that, I mean that they do it with remarkable frequency. They did it, for example, last month, when there was a minor terrorist attack at the location where V.P. Cheney was overseas in February. They did it again, when it was revealed in the last few weeks that Cheney has a blood clot in his leg. They were coming up with all sorts of 'cute' titles for that story, such as "the little blood clot that could."

                          And for every liberal example I'm sure we can produce a conservative example too.

                          Such as Brit Hume's reactions (on live TV) on hearing about the London bombings back in the summer of 2005- "My first thought when I heard - just on a personal basis, when I heard there had been this attack and I saw the futures this morning, which were really in the tank, I thought, 'Hmmm, time to buy.'"

                          Nice to see that Hume's first thought in a time of tragedy is to see how he could profit from it.

                          • And let's not forget that the day before the attack FOX News anchor John Gibson stated that he wished Paris would have gotten the Olympics so the French would have to deal with terrorist threats. Sayeth he- "If they had picked France instead of London to hold the Olympics, it would have been the one time we could look forward to where we didn't worry about terrorism. They'd blow up Paris, and who cares?"

                            Real nice, wishing a tragedy like a terrorist attack on someone.
