I have always considered you a sports reporter, Deb, and one of the very best.

Is curling any different from shuffleboard, except for the brooms?

I love and respect how American sports reporters write about curling as if they had any idea what was going on.

She was one of the perv rabbi's victims, yet put it in perspective and didn't let it torment her. I respect her for her strengths, not her politics.

This woman gave birth in an Altima on the side of the road, and wasn't particularly freaked. She has succeeded professionally while having 1,459 babies at home under the age of four.

I don't dislike her. She's smart and tough. I respect her. She is wrong about everything. EVERYTHING.

How about the dictionary? How about a hundred other sources idenfying "assault rifles" as a thing? Or are you the munitions expert? But I don't care if it is a thing. Whatever you call them, they are killing us and conservatives are facilitating this.

One more time: I urge y'alls to read my poem about Wayne LaPierre. It's newly current. Near the top of this.

if you query conservative gun nuts about why they oppose an assault weapons ban, you discover half of them love playing with guns and don't want to stop, and the other half are afeared the gummint or swarthy people will come gunnin' for them.

It's a pretty big ask, since every source from Wiki on identifies assault rifles as a thing. But even if it weren't, I'm not sure why terminology matters. Assault weapons are decimating our country because of conservative gun nuts.

I think it is necessary to reprise my poem about Wayne LaPierre. It's right at the top here.

Ah. I have read your website, and the article about me, and the comments. I now understand. No need to answer. Carry on.
