Isn't there a story floating about that it was Bono? That he hated the song or something?

It was kinda depressing, the Cubs lost, and right after they did, they played Ordinary World and I was like...way to be depressing WGN

Was that the split personality episode?

Just when I thought SVU was getting a little played out, that ep sucked me right back in

I'd have put Vertigo on the album just for the live goodness, and Native Son would have been a semi-regular.

They need me for creative control.

same here. sure it can be a dominating figure if you elect the wrong people (ahem ahem ahem george w ahem ahem ahem) but when it's right, it's a source of social benefit, like you said. and i do know for things i'd like, such as universal healthcare, they will be paid for by increasing my taxes, but i see it as a benefit regardless. besides, that at least will probably be a wash as i might not need my employer's healthcare plan, which i pay for. and better education, roads, doing more to help the poor, sick, old, all these things just need to be done. they need to be done more. government-run nursing homes are a joke. roads are full of potholes, neighbourhoods have streets with no streetlights. it shouldn't be like this.

and yes, i've heard about the labour party. well actually, are you referring to the australian or uk labour party? because i have heard about the uk's labour party's shift, thanks to tony blair. i've heard about john howard, but looking him up, it looks like he was a member of the liberal party. so i don't know.
Yeah. And even if your taxes do go up, the personal cost to you overall will go down. That's what people don't look at. With such a vast pool of tax income funding the system, it reduces the costs to everyone since you aren't paying huge private premiums for services you MAY need but probably WON'T use. It's not run for profit, but for cost-recovery. I think it is nauseating that things such as healthcare and public transport are hocked off to the private sector and run for profit when they should be run as a service aimed at cost recovery.

Howard was Liberal, who are our right wing dumbfucks (though not nearly as extreme as your Republicans) who are socially conservative, focus solely on the economic short term, and basically don't like anybody who isn't upper class and white. Labour here, as in the UK, has tended towards the centre and our Prime Minister is the leader of the centrist faction. I can deal with it, as I know they're not going to fuck over the less fortunate too much, but it's still not as good as the social democrat faction leading like it used to.

Fuck the right wing. If we listened to them, society wouldn't have made it to the Enlightenment.

Yeah, but this comes just days after the Criminal Intent episode where Goran was committed.

I thought the story was that he liked the lyrical theme but didn't think it would work as a single or something?

I...have tried to get into CI. My mom loves that show beyond express, but...I don't know. I've watched like three episodes, one being the one where he goes undercover in prison to help his..Nephew? And it was kinda just weird, but, he's been committed? is this long-term? Maybe that's why mom hasn't been talking about it much, she doesn't like that other guy.
