I have to agree with McCain, that the issue of sanctioning torturing is defining issue for Americans. As he said you can't lead anyone to the high road unless you take the same path.
Thompson actually said at one point that Roe v Wade was the single most important issue... Shhuttdafukup! blahh blahh
Margret Locke who I was lucky enough to catch on Ideas tonight I think would say it was a developement of cultural anthropology, she also spoke about biological anthropology. The seris (Ideas) is called How to Think About Science, which made me think about Dexter Sinister, next epesode Ian Haking will speak. A very nice lecture while at the same time a very strong buzz. Of particular interest was the stark differences between menopausal women in North America and Japanese women. This study she conducted in the eightys. I found it very interesting in light of the brief whine we had about our afflictions and what we might do about them. All in all it was a very stimulating evening for me, I even had smoked maple salmon, I could develope another addiction and then there would have to be problems with cheeze and proper biscuits. A realy good lecture one which god allowed me to hear in the pits of my medium altered state. Its snack time again.
The debates are a joke. CNN won't ask any of the Democratic candidates any hardball questions, and they plant liberals to ask the questions in the Republican debates.
But I suppose when all of the candidates on both sides are utterly worthless, the moronity of the questioners shouldn't be surprising.
