Prudy

l1: What Prudy said.

LW2: And who was in such a big hurry to get married to begin with? Married after just a year? Let that be a lesson to others.

"Unless you’ve taken some steps to keep it from him, he’s probably already read your letter to me."

Steps? What steps? Like not leaving it lying around o nthe coffee table? WTF? That's a pretty stupid assumption. Amy helping out today?

LW3: Is she married? Is her husand supporting her? Maybe she likes it that way and this is her way of being able to say, "But honey, I've been interviewing all over town and just not getting the job".

LW4: "Oh, the agony, the heartbreak of the guy with the big dick"

HO!
LEE!
SCHITT!

Are you kidding me? Did Prudy just say that?!? I thought it was edogg f'n with us till I remembered I cut and pasted the column directly from the site.

Radio said he got 68% votes, the highest of anyone in the class but not enough.

Here's some info from a local paper re: Jack Morris, Twins pitcher:

Besides the PED impact, Morris was hurt by a segment of voters influenced by sabermetrics. This is mostly a younger crowd that buys a little too heavily into statistics. This bunch looks at Morris' 254 career wins and 3.92 earned-run average, which would be the highest in the Hall of Fame, and says, "No way."

They should put less emphasis on the ERA and acknowledge that Morris was one of the dominant pitchers of his era, and that should count for something. He had 175 complete games in 18 seasons. He was an innings eater who believed in going the distance whenever possible. What he did in that Game 7 in '91 is all the proof you need of that.

Maddux and Glavine both pitched more than 20 years; Maddux had 109 complete games, Glavine 56. They had better ERAs than Morris, but you can bet if Morris had bailed earlier in games he would have allowed fewer garbage runs.

Statistics are important. There's no arguing that. The problem with stats is, they don't measure grit. Morris had plenty of that. Three teams made him their ace, and all three teams won the World Series because of him.

She did go to the nudest resort. She can't be too prude and has to be be a little bit freaky to be open to that.

Good memories and taught me street smarts.

I'm not so much shocked that she would say such a thing, just that she would say it in her column. I know she often walks the line, but this is the first time I've seen her hump over completely. Maxim magazine. Your local free alternative paper. Glamour. I would not bat an eye in those types of publications. But I thought her primary audience was more of the straight laced "respectable" types. Does she get published in the NYT or WaPo or anything like that? I can't imagine that wouldn't get edited out.

I saw that. He stands a reasonable chance of getting in, in a few years, with that high of a percentage of votes.

All the countries ahead of us on this list are booming, economically. WE are falling backwards, in contrast.

For those who advocate that we become more like European nations with bloated governments and massive entitlements, outside of Switzerland and Denmark, all other European countries are even behind us on the list.

Ask yourself which direction Obama will be taking us in the next 4 years. Then ask yourself if policies that ensure economic stagnation/very small growth is good for our country.

She has also written a column about her short stint as a nude model.

She seems pretty open minded. I bet I would have her doing all sorts of things in the sack.

The republicans are also partially to blame because they have had weak candidates.

They also do themselves a disservice with much of their social agenda and a whole lotta stupid talk by some of the party members.

They pi$s off a lot of women with stupid comments about rape and abortion. That plays right into the democrats hands.

Instead of forcing them to focus on the most paramount issues that threaten all of us,(not issues that just affect women) i.e. debt, jobs, and economic opportunity for all, they play right into the democrats hands with all this controversy over birth control pills, who is or isn't a s l u t, legitimate rape stupid talk, whether rape is an act of god stupid talk ... I could go on and on. Stupid talk on these issues allows the democrats to direct attention to these other issues (which while not important ... are not paramount) in a manner that does not bode well for republicans or any of us.

We need a strong fiscal conservative republican who is more moderate on social issues, if not slightly liberal. That is who we need to lead us.

maybe, but the Flossmoor girls had better clothes. HF didn't open until my senior year, so they had to go to Bloom.

South siders are the best.
