    My stomach hurts from laughing so hard. How apropos. I know you can identify quite closely with this. Please don’t however, start signing your responses “Summer Glau”. (An option maybe for April? 🙂

      For the record I really despise it when commenters decide to do this with posts where they go through it sentence by sentence and rebut virtually every single thing. It requires a certain radical temperament to do it.

      My first response to them is always the same: “What point from your book would you like me to reply to?”

      Note to my critics: pick the argument that’s most important to you and let’s talk about ONE ARGUMENT AT A TIME.

      I do need to try and get April to start commenting more, though. Maybe have her put up pics of Maura or something.

    Classic. The anal-retentive flame reply. I have a good mind to keep that text on file for future bloggings on Democratic Underground. What a breeze my replies will be:


    And I’m done! Then I can get on with the rest of my day.

      Shoot! Your blog system did not recognize my special characters, which totally ruined the humor. The missing line should read (more or less) “copy”; “paste.” You know you’re in trouble as soon as you have to start explaining your own jokes.

    Day-yam, David! You have the time to do all that?? Wouldn’t it be easier to just carpet bomb them? Sometimes it’s merciful to destroy something quickly to save it from destroying itself slowly.

    Summer Glau’s rant shows first-rate writing. That’s hard work. Good stuff. jd
