Afternoon Open Forum

Slow news afternoon but the threads below are filling up.

Here is a Courant Editorial on the FBI raiding a congressional office. I think they make too little of the fact that Jefferson ignored a subpeona for 7 months...

The Holy Roman Empire was neither Holy, nor Roman, nor an Empire... Discuss.

"An argument is a series of facts intended to establish a proposition. It's not just saying, 'No it isn't.'"

"Yes it is."

"No it isn't."

Karl Rove defines an argument as ".. a series of facts intended to establish a proposition"...as DA suggests while most rational people see an argument as coherent series of statements leading from a premise to a conclusion

Uh, Bluecoat, that's more from the same Monty Python routine ... not the Rove playbook, OK?

Easy, big fella.

Chris MC said...

Sorry, bluecoat, I just can't agree.

Sorry, Monty Python often went over my head except when they all clapped coconuts to sound like horses approaching.

Would it make you feel better if you know that the two charwomen played by Graham Chapman and John Cleese were named Mrs. Premise and Mrs. Conclusion? (They were.)

Chris MC said...

Oh! Is THAT what they were doing? It makes much more sense to me now.

I think that this year, instead of doing a re-enactment of the Battle of Pearl Harbor or the first heart transplant, the Batley Townswomen's Guild should do a re-enactment of the Connecticut Democratic State Convention.
