Bezos will simply install a deflector array on every drone. Shields up!
I got to spend a couple of hours with him over a decade ago in his home office, something he didn't have to do. He was very encouraging in discussing a project with me. I think I gave him a few ideas as well. What we were discussing never came off but it did inspire me to do other things, one of which I'm still at work on. I was thinking about him the other day while sitting here wondering what to type next, the cobblestone steps to his office. He will be missed.
HA you guys are so late on the fashion front. Any "hipster" knows that jeans must be selvage denim sans pocket designs, preferably of fine Japanese raw denim hand-crafted in a small village outside Kyoto. Pocket designs are for music row.
Am I the only one who thinks the Journey song was chosen ironically? You lot seem to be really fixated . . .
Bubba I say that because I've read/seen/heard the same sentiment several times over in other races. Why wouldn't a candidate want to reduce the competition?
"I stand by my post because it represents facts"
"I believe there are people who could have . . ."
I'm not condescending to you. You're making a statement that sounds like it could be true but unless you have some super-early internal insta-polling only you are privy to I'm not so sure about it. You add that to what sounds like pretty typical poli-speak and you make me suspicious. Seriously, you are in the game as long as you say and you can't see how it sounds like you're laying groundwork to turn a trio into a duet? Okay. Don't stop believin'.
And you're taking my skepticism as anti-Yarbo-ism. As I said, he unlike a lot of young ambitious guys chose to do the hard work entering this game that others chose to avoid. That's nothing to sneeze at.
If nothing else, lots of drama added to the race. Let's see how it turns out.
The "split the vote" argument wont hold any weight unless it's supported by the numbers.
Besides, the realtennessean's argument makes little sense. Why are you going to get revenge for an "almost defeat?"
The sentiments on display have a familiar rank odor. "I like Joe. Joe is a great guy. I would have Joe's children if I had ovaries. BUT, here's why you shouldn't vote for Joe." Also, note the condescending tone that's also familiar; "Joe couldn't have possibly decided to run on his own accord, must be some evil plot to ruin someone else's life. You wouldn't want Joe to be used in that way, would you?"
Funny. Yarbo was an intern in the Clinton-Gore campaign. I remember him well enough. Clearly had his future on his mind. A lot of kids did back then but not everyone follows through, especially once they realize they can't start at the top like a lot of well-to-do kids seem to believe they will. I recall him being interested in issues but he was a center-left person like your standard issue Metro Democrat.
Mary, who I also know personally, is far removed from that base of support. If she becomes the "netroots" candidate, and I'm fairly certain she will, it will be hard to battle the base support (which translates to lots of volunteers to knock on doors in Antioch and such) with money in a local election. We got DVRs, we don't watch television ads anymore. I would not sneer at her candidacy.
