    Well it certainly has nothing to do with Bush either. Kal'Stangs was a sarcastic jab. It's what happens when you take the government places it does not belong.

    I don't find fault with Bush, either. And you are right - Kal'Stang's was a sarcastic jab, one that was clearly ultrapartisan. He was better off simply admitting it, as subsequent arguments only served to further illustrate this.

    The one thing I really miss being in Atlanta is the local independent Book store, Schuler's. I remember when they where just one store, and it was not that big. Now they have 5 locations and all are huge and never ail to have 50 + people shopping in them.

    I tend to portray an ultrapartisan arguement with those who only argue one side all the time. I've not been here a long time but I've been here long enough to know that Kal'Stang's arguements are all over the place.

    Bummer that Borders, and Waldenbooks [and other subsidiaries of Borders] is shutting down - there is a Waldenbooks near me, one of the new places within 3 minutes driving time to stock up on comic books, manga [translated to english of course], and everything somebody would need for a long campaign of D&D minus the soft drinks and chips. :P
