Re: Web of Sex Scandals

Sonic, we’re not in each other’s mutual admiration societies? That comment threw me a little. Do we have beef with each other? I surely don’t. I’m sorry if you do and would apologize for anything that might’ve led you there. I have nothing against you and never have. Not sure where that came from. ...

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

I don't remember it, and I don't know if it's true (knowing you I'd be surprised actually), but if it is, well, Reza - calling anyone a slut or a faggot is obviously unacceptable and, unless you already did, you should apologize. Unlike Sonic Youth, you CAN do that, I am sure. While I hate hypocris...

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

As for me being pro-rape, you lately wrote that you had changed your mind and that you agree with my accusers (not in this thread). Even just saying "I am sorry, ITALIANO" would have been more honorable than always avoiding my points. But ok, never mind. No, I never said that either. What...

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

Sabin, why did you erase your post? I thought you were right on, and I wrote a big response which now has no connection to anything. Well, Sabin disagreed with Reza's belief that "we're going to enter an era where people are afraid to wink at each other"..... Of course we're not going to, ...

Are they (meaning all precursors) deliberately trying to mess with our heads?

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

I don't know how anyone could compare civil rights... with individual cases Did I really say that? Hmmm.... Yes, there's going to be false accusations, mistaken accusations, and exaggerated accusations. All of this, unfortunately, also happened with every civil rights movement in history. It should...

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

As for backfiring on Democrats, I wouldn't worry about it. Women make up about 50% of the electorate, more or less. They'll be fine. And women all of a sudden are going to band together and vote as a bloc? That will never happen. No woman should have voted for Trump, yet enough either stayed home o...

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

This whole thing could backfire, not only on the Democrats, but women in the workplace as well. We're already beginning to hear stories about male executives being afraid to hire women for fear that the slightest thing, a raised voice, a cuss word in a lady's presence, or something else that wasn't...

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

I'm thinking in very short order -- maybe a few months, maybe a year or two -- Franken will be in the books like a blacklist victim: as a shameful example of someone unfairly destroyed by the hysteria of the times. There's another possibility. Perhaps you will see this differently with the passage ...

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

Really? He grabbed her butt or that's where his hand landed when he pulled her in tight to take his umpteenth picture of the day? And in front of her husband? Give me a break. First, let me clarify. What I should've said was I think it's likely that there will be more accusations coming up - maybe ...

Re: The 2017 Peter Travers Top 10 List Contest!

First, I should point out that I previously added a score wrong, and it was mine. I received 7 points, not 8, essentially tying with Sabin and anonymous1980. In any event, the change has helped some people's scores and hurt others. The newly revised scores are: 1. Okri - 13 points 2. Sabin/Sonic - 8...

Re: The 2017 Peter Travers Top 10 List Contest!

I suspected as much.... Here's Travers' revised Top Ten list. "Phantom Thread" replaces "Darkest Hour". Everything else is unchanged. 1. Dunkirk 2. Get Out 3. Call Me By Your Name 4. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri 5. The Post 6. Lady Bird 7. The Shape of Water 8. Detroi...

"For once"?? Let's not overstate things, shall we?

(BTW, I'm flattered that you use your most elaborate English for me, but I prefer the word "terpsichorean", thank you.)
