Re: “Danehy

CW13, I'm pleasantly surprised that you and your wife are proud to openly call yourselves bigots.

Re: “Danehy

Yes, my wife and I are voting for Trump. I resent you calling us closet bigots. We are nothing of the sort.

Re: “Danehy

Dude, that is the most realistic picture of Trump which I have ever seen!

Thank you, Mr. Danehy.

Re: “Danehy

Tom,

Have to admit: this presidential race serves up two of the main parties' worst electoral choices this side of a high school student body election. It's Green for me this time around. 'Nuff said.

Good piece for us nostalgia buffs who seriously believe in the Roddenberry space utopia to come.
That said, thanks for validating my contempt for Deep Space Nine, a wretchedly boring (if not reworking) of that wretchedly boring western TV series, "Gunsmoke."
"Enterprise" and its less than idealistic and shoot from the hip, Captain Archer, turned out to be a surprisingly intelligent series (and yes, Blalock is a doll!). That said, the poorly designed final episode soured it for me. Wish I had never seen it!
Why no mention of "Voyager?" Its "marooned-in-a-distant-quadrant/lost-in-space" trope set it up for some amazing adventures and a planet after planet contact with the most hostile and/or obnoxious species humanity will ever encounter in outer space! Hairy situations all.

SPOILER ALERT, SPOILER ALERT...

Five captains, but it took a Janeway to finally end the scourge of the Borg, unless of course the Borg queen's retrospective, time-line paradox dying "prediction" is correct--which meant only in a _parallel_ universe were the Borg destroyed and not in "our" _actual_ Star Trek universe...
Loved this series' ending!

Be well.

Re: “Danehy

Oooh, you sound a bit nervous Tom. " Stink-o candidate"? You always found something nice to say about the pant suited princess before. Excuse me for a second, I need to go cough and hug some babies. Ok, I'm back. Damn allergies. I mean flu. I mean pneumonia. I mean Parkinson seizure. Maybe demonic possession, whatever. More is expected of us women you know. So what if I took two weeks off in August while the Donald busted everyday.
Bill Clinton could be up by 15 Tom, but he's not the candidate. Colin Powell's email points out that he is still very busy " dickin bimbos". The rest of his spare time he spends flying on that private plane to pedophilia island with that rich buddy of his. Anything to escape Nurse Ratchett I guess. She must be deplorable.

Re: “Danehy

"How big a lead would any other human being not named Hitler or Clinton have on Donald Trump right now? (Actually, Bill Clinton would be up 15 points, but Hillary is such a stink-o candidate.) Why are we Democrats stuck with the second most-reviled candidate of all time (behind only her racist blow-hard opponent)?

The obvious answer two both laments is: because she won the majority of votes in the states' primary election (not even needing the cushion of the uber-delegates). A more direct response is because Clinton was de facto nominated for this run at the big enchilada at the end of the her embarrassing defeat in 2008 when Obama fed her her lunch. A consolation prize if you will.

To the first lament: Any democrat other than Clinton would be far ahead of Trump, if not up by 15 points. Imagine Biden (or Tammy Duckworth) (or Corey Booker), name your favorite Democrat who is not despised by 2/3 of the voters.

The Democrats, as in the DNC and major contributors with deep pockets, got their wish, their dream team (oh wait, who is she running with, I keep forgetting his name). Today's Times (NY) poll has the race essentially tied. Trump supporters are fired up, Hillary supporters are fighting to keep their eyes open when not breaking out into night sweats and panic attacks.

You Democrats are stuck with Hillary, Tom, because she was coronated as the inevitable nominee eight years ago by the folks who matter. And you and a substantial number of party members and independents are not members of that club.

Ask Spock, maybe he had a better answer.

Re: “Danehy

Another typical low brow, obligatory liberal, insulting lead in to what could have been a nice article. Thanks for keeping true to form Tom.

CW13-You're going after Tom's wife!! Tom's paid to be insulted but insult his wife is disgusting. That is simply beneath even trolling.

Re: “Danehy

My wife wondered why I was yelling at the TV during the archery competition from the excruciatingly bad NBC Olympics coverage. I just read her your column. Always good to learn (though somehow frightening) that one is not alone in thinking this way.

CW13, check the spelling. When she got married she got into "marital arts". "Marriage " "marital". Get it.

Re: “Danehy

"she got into martial arts and she got married ( which means that she also got into martial arts)' Only a hopeless loser like Tammy would have such a low opinion of the sacrament of marriage. How I weep for your wife.

To quote Shrill Hill 'Tom Hanks, Bill Murray. What difference does it make?"

Re: “Danehy

I said I fell like Tom Hanks, because he was dropped and they hired Bill Murray to play the part of Phil Connors.

There were 36 distinct days shown in the movie.

Bill Murray mentioned he'd been "stabbed, shot, poisoned, frozen, hung, electrocuted, and burned," though only electrocution was shown in the movie; adding the 6 other methods of death provides a minimum of 42 days.

He mentions it takes about six months to become an expert at throwing cards, so add another 182 days (according to Google calculator that's about how long 6 months is) to give us 224 days. He also obviously spent time learning the exact timing needed to rob the armored truck, but since he spent only 4-5 hours a day working on card throwing, it's conceivable he could have overlap and do those both during the same days.-Ja Kitos Professional Zombie Hunter

Should have listened to yourself.

Re: “Danehy

I told myself that I would stay out of this, but I have to point out that it was Bill Murray in "Groundhog Day," not Tom Hanks.
