Oct 5th 2010 6:59PM I'm completely aware of this. It would be highly, highly unlikely that that (and same sex encounters) could make up for a 21 percent difference. I doubt it's even close
Aug 18th 2010 12:21AM Speaking as Jeremy Taylor, Jeremy Taylor can assure you Jeremy Taylor knew exactly what year Star Wars came out. However, in Jeremy Taylor's experience, Jeremy Taylor spent a lot more time playing with, appreciating and possibly pining to be a Star Wars action figure at age nine than Jeremy Taylor did at age 15.
Good job on knowing the difference between there, their and they're, though. Your second grade English teacher must be very proud.

Apr 29th 2010 9:14PM I wrote it so I guess I'll respond:
In the video government forces, operating in the open, under the flag of the government, brutally round up a group of people and then brutally kill them for sport. The only example that you provided which remotely resembles the totality of the video is Wounded Knee.
Which happened in 1890.
"now, or in the near future."
If I had wrote "now, in the near future, or in the late 19th century," you would have had a much better point.

McClean's "notoriety" stems more from its famous clientele and the artistic works it inspired. Really, it's more "famous" than notorious.
For most of its existence, McClean has had a reputation for treating its patients fairly well.
Still, it has been around for about 200 years, so I am sure there are plenty of local urban legends about hauntings etc. Although I didn't come across any during my research.
Feb 16th 2010 12:57PM Wow. I didn't even know about that one and it's amazing. Instead of a rap verse, they have a French verse.

The passage that offends you is directly from a once-on-the-books law. I reprinted it because it conveys the absurdity of the state's mental health policies in 1913. It wasn't my "choice" to include epileptics in the list of those eligible for castration under 1913 law in Kansas. In fact, if I didn't mention epileptics, it would render my article historically inaccurate, and I wouldn't be doing my job. This being the case, the passage that "offends" you is the exact opposite of "literary embellishment" and would hardly qualify as "sensationalism."
I'm glad your daughter has done so well with a condition that, in 2010, nobody would ever compare to being an "idiot" or an "imbecile." But your "offense" is completely misguided.
If you'd like to learn more about early 20th century legal eugenics in Kansas, here is a footnoted paper (which I linked in the original article) on the subject: http://www.uvm.edu/~lkaelber/eugenics/KS/KS.html

You are correct. While the Island of Oahu is more densely populated than the state of New Jersey, NJ is more densely populated than Hawaii, and is the most densely populated state in the union. It's been corrected.
Oct 30th 2009 12:53PM Yours is going to be tough to top. Good job.
