Its really hard to decide between JINKX/ALASKA. Both have proved to be worthy of the title. ROXY just take a back seat and observe how a superstar acts and how they treat people.
While there are some important things that the government should be doing in the name of science (I'm still upset at the shrinking of NASA), if the political will isn't there because of high-powered lobbying by a special interest group, the best way to fight back isn't to complain to little effect. While I (probably, based on the name) don't agree with "Gun Reform Advocate" about his/her solutions, I certainly agree that talking about it can be useful. But if you want to DO something about it, you've got options, and the government isn't the only one.
Several weeks ago on NPR's "Morning Edition," a segment of "Joe's Big Idea" discussed some scientists who were crowd-sourcing their research funding: http://www.npr.org/blogs/health/2013/02/13… . I don't see why people seeking to do gun control research cannot do the same thing. There certainly are enough people who would/could help fund the work.
While I don't agree with gun control on a purely libertarian standpoint, I also feel that if you can't get the government to do what you want, then quit complaining and do it yourself (while I mourn the shrinkage of NASA, the void has left room for private enterprise to do at least some of the utilitarian work in space). If your findings are compelling enough, you can make a difference.
Love this area - used to live close by - but 102 units is awfully large. A somewhat scaled back version might just be the ticket. Then it would be a terrific addition to a really nice area.
@j.a.m., this is hardly the "inner city." Drive by it sometime. It looks a lot like the safe confines of your suburban apartment.
Jinkx Monsoon should be the next drag Superstar. She has literally blossomed on the show and honey..RuPaul may have loved her runway look but i thought it a hot mess..her bubblebutt looked fake and she was no beautiful at all. Jinkx Monsoon all the way..that's where MY people at.
and BTW..Jinkx doesn't even have to lipsynch..her voice is to die for. I think Jinkx embodies the new drag
This show is deliciously fabulous. Do you have the Remedial Program there to refer back to though?....Congrats to you to remember all the nuances. Also, to hear all the dialogue. I have alot of trouble hearing it. You are so right that the budget was huge for this show. The panoramic views were very incredible.
Couple of things: Who is the person that Margaery wants Sansa to wed?
They have totally toned down the make up on the Hound....looks more like a puppy who needs braces.
(Btw phone calls, not hearing well and eating dinner, I missed who was in the box that Varys had.
(and again, so right that Conleth Hill is superb)
Diana Rigg rocks.
Team Daenerys. Just the greatest seen. Ever.
I dont see how a parking lot with a garden next to it is a better alternative to Morgans plan. Morgan would bring additional tax revenue, density, and people to a neighborhood where new housing is in demand. Not to mention a dense development will encourage walking over driving in an already walkable area. Nearby Businesses would no doubt prefer Morgans plan also. In my opinion more parking and green space owned by Eastman is not what is needed for this site.
I love you all but my heart goes to Alaska.
BTW how to get the tickets to the reunion ?
Love Alaska, but she hasn't been consistent.... Roxxxy just shouldn't be in top 3 period.... That leaves Jinkx Monsoon!!!! JInkx is most deserving of the title!!!! Team JINKX!!!
Either Alaska or Jinx.
"The loss might even work to Warren’s advantage by reinforcing her “outsider” status: the candidate of the people versus the candidate of the city’s business interests."
Will somebody please explain how Warren, who has been city council president for three years, and a council member prior to that , can run as an "outsider"?
@YeashuaAD :Thanks for the enlightenment. I always though Gary Walkers stage name was "Good Gov".....so obviously he has more than one. The point is he is now accusing others of playing the "race card" when in fact his boss and Joe Morelle in particular did so with their premature announcement that all but suggested the 3 committees not counted were a non factor since they represent the majority of minorities in the City of Rochester. The gloves will definitely be OFF from here on out. I hope smart voters are paying attention.
Morelle is getting pretty big for his britches. Just another example of how he serves his own interests and not those of the public—especially not the public in the 22nd, 25th and 27th LDs. Really disappointing that Richards went along with this. I used to think he was an honorable man, even if he was more than a bit out of touch with his constituents.
I second Yeshua’s point about Gary Walker—aka RaChaCha. Maybe CityNews should FOIL his computer logs. I’m sure I’m not the only taxpayer unhappy about him spending public dollars trashing city council president.
Dan: at this point all of our busker slots are filled, But if you'd like to be added to the waiting list you can e-mail email@example.com.
When Lovely Warren and a majority of African American leaders supported Tom Richards for Mayor in 2011, it was with the understanding that Richards would finish out Bob Duffy's term and step aside.
When Lovely Warren and a majority of African American leaders supported Tom Richards for Mayor in 2011, Bill Johnson had not yet entered the race. After Johnson entered the race, they KEPT THEIR WORD and continued to support Richards.
Richards and Joe Morelle have not kept their word. It is they who are holding the knives. Morelle has been playing the race card from the beginning.
The idiotic and unnecessary press release they issued today illustrates the incompetence of Joe Morelle as Monroe County Democratic Chair. It also demonstrates that Tom Richards is unfit to serve all of the residents of Rochester. That the two of them would get together and issue a press release giving the false impression that Richards is backed by 75% of the City when they know that to be untrue reveals this to be both a blatant attempt to dismiss the wishes of a large portion of the City's population and a desperate attempt to energize a campaign and a candidate who have no vision for the future of the City of Rochester.
BTW, everyone knows that RaChaCha is Gary Walker, the Communications Director for the City of Rochester. I hope he wasn't on City time when he posted here on behalf of his boss.
Lovely Warren strongly supported Tom Richards, even posing for a photo with him for campaign literature, in his first attempt at the office of Mayor. So when it benefited her to support Tom Richards and Joe Morelle's decision to support Tom Richards it was fine, but now it is some sort of knife in the back to city blacks for Joe Morelle to support Tom Richards this time? Tom Richards had a black opponent last time with Bill Johnson as he does this time with Lovely Warren. Seems as though Lovely will say anything to get elected. How unfortunate for this city to have this type of dialogue starting and not a focus on what really matters.
So the Warren camp is playing the race card early. Will it also be often? I'd say so, with Chris Christopher on board.
Whether intentional or not, Morelle's statement has elicited just what kind of campaign the Gantt/Christopher/Warren camp intends to run.
Is there still time to enter the competition?
It's hard to choose between Alaska and Jinkx but I think Jinkx Monsoon is the better choice. Maybe first because her entire drag name can be published without using "$&@/". LOL But I just love the personality Alaska has shown, even as part of "Rolodex" (as Michele called the group) she managed to avoid the bitchiness. And thank the goddess that Rolaskatox never stooped as low as "The Heathers" did in previous episodes.
I think we would do well with either Alaska or Jinkx, but Jinkx just appears to be more complete. After all, with $100,000 she can always buy new clothes! Roxxxy can't buy empathy with all the money in the world!
Jinkx should be the Next Drag Superstar she is everything a Queen should be. And fashion has NOTHING to do with it! It needs to be about the Voice and kindness, love for all and to traet those like they mean something and Jinkx does that. Go Jinkx!!!
