We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.

Women... in the news!
Smart women, all!
Pic: Artist's concept of what smart women think about
Well, under the same heading, I just love what this lady did. It goes to the very core of pragmatism.
You're a cigarette smoker. You're seriously hooked. You've tried everything to stop, but you just keep failing.
So, as a last desperate resort, what do you do?
Woman Slaps Police Officer to Quit Smoking
When it comes to your health, you just gotta do what you just gotta do.
I was actually surprised how many commenters took the "Moron!" approach. I thought it was brilliant and daring. And the blotch on her 'permanent record' really won't make any big dif in the future, and any lawyer could get it expunged. But that week or two she spends in the hoosegow might make a very big difference when her grandchildren have a grandmother around to love and grow up with.
Well, now that we've got that 'smart' stuff out of the way, let's get down to the intrinsic, elemental, key role women play in the interwoven society of modern day life and what they bring to the table:
Other stuff and boobies. Right, that's it. I mean, I wouldn't want to shortchange the other body parts. That just wouldn't be manly.
And, speaking of boobies, what does a man really, really hunger for in life?
Good food surrounded by pleasant women who, as we've already proven, can be quite smart. You combine your smarts with hers, your wallet with her good looks (to make up for the lack of yours), and we're talkin' an equal deal here with no 'objectification' in sight.
It's all about balance and harmony.
Long live pleasant, smart women!

Wow, what a bevy of beauties! That blonde they interviewed was just sizzling. And the script was great, too. There was a whole shitload of what you'd call 'soft' innuendo. Enjoyable from first minute to last.
Long live pleasant, smart women!
I read that smoking article a few days ago and had the exact same reaction. If you simply can't quit with it around and available, then you place yourself in a situation where it isn't. That would be jail or the middle of the desert, and those scorpion bites can be nasty! Like you said, kudos to the gal. I hope it works out exactly as she intended. If I were her lawyer I'd ask the judge for 3 weeks, not 2, since the experts seem to agree that it takes about 21 days to break a habit.
I've heard that "21 days" from a couple of sources over the years, so I guess there's some truth to it. It's probably not enough time for the heavy stuff, but for things like nicotine, caffeine, chocolate, etc, it sounds about right.
ZING! Ah, now that's the way to start off the weekend. And I have to agree with BobZ, that blonde has 'Miss America' written all over her. Food looked good, too! I mean, when I noticed it.
"Missy Lopez needs a rubber room at Napa State Mental, where drugs and trained personnel deal with mental cases."
Nope, that's not overreacting to a ciggie habit -- nosiree!
"It would be cruel to county jailers to have to baby sit such a munchkin."
I presume you fail to see what an oxymoron that is. The guards would be delighted to have a normal, polite, wants-to-be-there person to take care of for once. And they don't "baby-sit" inmates in jail; they lock them up in their cells and then go about their rounds.
Are you sure you're on the right site?
Well, it's not easy. The pressure's on to pick the right video of hot, busty table babes, and there are a couple of mini-documentaries like this out there. I had to haul out my 3000X electron microscope and examine each video on a careful frame-by-frame basis. But that's just the kind of guy I am. Always willing to give what it takes in the name of art.
And we sure appreciate it. As anyone can tell you, there's a big difference between normal sordid smut and the high-class stuff. The fact that you'll "go the extra mile" in order to bring us the highest quality stuff around is just another hallmark of what a great site this is.
Not to brown-nose or anything.
Can I borrow ten bucks?
"Can I borrow ten bucks?"
Of course. I've hit the 'P' key in the web editor to make this part of the thread 'Private'. Only we two can see these particular comments. Just toss that ol' bank account number out there (don't forget the routing number) and I'll have the funds transferred immediately.
(Doc picks up phone, calls travel agent, makes one-way reservation to Rio)
Always glad to help!
Thanks! I'm okay, though. I just sold another gallon of blood, so I should be good for another few days of rent and food.
Got any movie reviews coming up?

Uh-yup. Been thinking of doing one on the two 'Boondock Saints' movies, both of which were terrific, and 'Django' was a riot. But it'll be a 'real' piece, not just a review, because there's much to talk about and how it parallels 'Blazing Saddles', from which clips will also be included.

then there was Amelia Earhart, who died in a plane crash
Or shot down by the Japanese and captured? Word is she and Fred Noonan were seen in Saipan long after her supposed Howland Island "crash".
But then, that wasn't the topic of your post. She was still a remarkable 'gal'.
I think the whole breastaraunt thing is vastly inflated. And how is a pretty young thing supposed to differentiate herself from the common herd of servers when the bend down and show cleavage bit is advertized instead of being a hidden, just between her and the customer, sort of thing. Now every one gets the same tips. It's no fair and a slap in the face to individual enterprise.
Lots of silicone there. The plastic surgeons are doing even better then the restaurants.
Yes, the male fixation with boobs. Yet try to find a porn video where the guy goes anywhere near them. Not that I've ever seen a porn video, that's just what I've heard.
Don't have any of these near me. Can someone tell me if Twin Peaks serves home-made pies and a really fine cuppa Joe?
Re: The Breastaurants
The one critic said that the places could serve sludge and still get customers. This is arrant everyone-thinks-the-same-way-I-do nonsense. If the food sucks, the customers go to where the food is good.
Like the restaurant with the same theme right next door.
