Comment on: 'Is Megan Amram the funniest woman on Twitter?'
Posted 06/28/2011 02:13:54 EDT
I wouldn't say Megan "isn't funny" simply because she doesn't make me laugh. Apparently there are enough Twits (Twitterers?) who disagree that she's establishing a career of some kind . . . $1.85 in l more »

If we've established that "society" no longer has room for a sympathetic alcoholic, then why are they remaking "Arthur" at all? If you have to abandon the central premise of the original film -- that more »
Comment on: Final Four: One more defanging of NCAA - The Boston Globe

In a very sad, cynical way, you've got to give Bo credit for coming up with new and intereting ways to keep the electoral skids greased . . . but I have to agree with the poster who wondered why he's more »
Comment on: He hasn't said the three words
