Welcome to the Sunday evening open thread.
Yeah, there was another one of those debates. No, I didn't watch that one, either. Why not? Because I'm still not voting for either one of them. This explains a couple of the reasons why not:
I sort of idly wondered if the Nobel Committee could ever top itself for awarding the Peace Prize to Barack Obama without him having done anything to deserve it; this year, they managed it by giving the award to the European Union. Next year, rumor has it that the award will go to Henri, le Chat Noir.
Some guy took thrillseeking to new heights today.
Arlen Specter has died at the age of 82. What I remember most about him: his less-than-admirable treatment of Anita Hill during the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings, and his "not proven" vote during the Clinton impeachment. He also proved pretty much beyond a shadow of a doubt that there is no longer a place in the Republican Party for moderates.
How was your week?
