Eloi, Eloi, Lama Sabachthani

Just a few things before I head into the weekend:

1 (a). The comment section of this blog is going to Hell in a handbasket. I had to delete one for using the "N-bomb." It's 2006, I shouldn't have to be telling people not to say "nigger." Another anonymous reader referred to two of my more faithful (in terms of comments anyways) readers as "cunts." Again, totally unacceptable. I would prefer to keep the comments totally open, but if this keeps up I will have to make changes. More likely than not, I will have to prevent people from leaving comments anonymously. I do not want to do that. Please keep it civil. I don't mind criticism from people who are upset at me for comparing McLean to Nazi Germany or people who disagree with my stance on medical marijuana. That's all well and good. I enjoy criticism. But be polite. I hate blogs that limit comments but a man's gotta do what a man's gotta go.

1 (b). Please stay on topic. My last post was about a strip club. The comments have been about bad driving and music. When I want to talk about bad driving or music, I will post about bad driving or music. If things get ridiculously off-topic, I will just start deleting comments. I know this is something that asshole bloggers do, but, oh well.

2. I have a very small link section on the left-hand side of this blog. I just made my first addition to it: Irina is Always Right. Irina leaves a ton of comments on this site, so you've probably already checked out her blog. If not, I recommend you give it a read. I'm a big fan.

3. On to a completely different topic...

On Wednesday, one of my new roommates and I were walking through AU Park to get to a basketball court. I forget how this happened, but the conversation turned to American University parking. I mentioned their illegal ticketing program, but since I never had a car in DC, I was unable to provide details. The next day: BAM! A Washington Post article on AU parking. This article should have been written four years ago, but, whatever. I'm glad it's here now.

4. Have a good weekend. Stay out of trouble or Jesus will be mad at you. The Man is bound to be grumpy after a three day nap!

  8. Yeah American sucks.....but we all kind of knew that already. However, I always like an article that points out, yet again, why Georgetown is better than American.

  9. Rusty,
    you could also turn on comment moderation — it would keep the deletions down.

  10. I don't know if I had anything to do with inciting nasty comments, but I'm sorry. I didn't even read the nasty comments from AKA Krystal Koons--that joke was old two weeks ago. I haven't read this site for a week.

    Way to keep it clean, Rusty. Keep it smart and, of course, snarky....

  13. My company was doing the construction on the newest arts center there and our guys got tickets constantly and had to keep proving themselves. I could never figure out how they could keep ticketing. AU parking/ticketing has gotten completely out of hand.

  14. OK, Russ: new topic. Not only Lulu's, but all the big clubs in town are closing. I know you've spent quality time at Nation -- so time to comment!

  15. Achtung Rusty!

    -different anonymous that may go off topic but at least keeps it on the level as far as civil discourse is concerned

    disclaimer: telling 'all caps' to wise up and fuck himself is civil...

  16. Let me share with everyone what an absolute PLEASURE Metro was this morning. NOT only did I get to enjoy the loud rap music coming out of three of my fellow seat-neighbors' headphones but the lovely Metro driver decided to SLAM on the breaks at every single damn stop. Really slam. You would think that spending SEVEN dollars a day (inc. the forced parking fee) would guarantee you a comfortable ride, but no,no for Metro that would be expecting way too much.

    Then I decide I need a cup of coffee before heading into my Monday morning at work. I go to Caribou and this woman steps right ahead of me in the line without saying a word like "Oh were you here first?" in order to clarify. I say immediately to her "I was here first." She contests that point and says "No I was here first." To which I say "You are wrong. I am right. Fucking Washington people." Then she just gets quiet but continues to cut in front of me. Needless to say it was an awkward ten minutes in line.

    Love your show babe.

  17. Bloggers get all upity about cencorship, but they're always the first to go hog-wild with their all-powerful "delete comment" button.
