    Wow. I guess I'm the only one who looks at this as a real ecological tragedy.

    No, you're not, and that's why I posted it. It's pretty awful.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    The fish are dying from a lack of O2 likely being caused by the decomposition of the molasses with the algae bloom it caused. Fortunately, its not infinite and eventually will neutralize and return to normal.

    No, I agree completely, the fish are in a very sticky situation.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    I didn't set the bar. Those who put forth the candidates and elect them set the bar, and those who promote them while in office maintain the standard. I suppose you believe you're a stand-up guy when you take exception to those who question that standard or those who may allude to something a bit more demanding than popular notions.

    You were talking about the bar you set for yourself, so you did indeed set that bar.

    You can't blame the politicians, that's like getting drunk and blaming a bunch of other drunks.

    No, trying to keep up with the leaders of our nation doesn't imply that I accept it - it's merely an acknowledgement of where the public bar is. You could have gathered that from the first post on the subject.

    Oh, I get it -- so when the cows go moo, so do you. You don't make up your own mind, you let popular opinion do it for you. Got it.

    I don't know what you got. But, probably an ill-advised post on my part. Rotten mood at the time, which is unusual for me. The "cold sweets won't spread" is not original, anyway. It comes from Saul Bellow, and I should give him credit, if there's any to be given. Have a good day.
