    Wilco, duh!
  1. Still can't believe I screwed up and missed this...hanging out with the family in Chicago all weekend waiting for tonight's show... Hope Minneapolis treated you well, Bböp! Bummed I didn't get to see you there like last summer
  2. So who's all going to the Chicago show on Sunday? Hoping to see some familiar faces! I'll be down in the pit with my 13yo and my husband and our youngest are back in 202. Solid Sound or Red Rocks friends? bböp? We're actually on our way right now. Planned a family mini-vacation around the show and told the kids like 2 days before they announced the rest of the Midwest dates. I'm missing my first MN show in a decade (I don't count Morehead - my brain automatically screams "Too close to Fargo!") and of course it's one they're going to stream. Frak!!! There've been a few days where the urge to
  3. I guess my point is that the more people are carrying guns in public places, regardless if they have a permit, the more often negligent discharge is going to happen. Innocents will injured or killed because they happened to be standing next to an incompetent idiot who is either so arrogant or so afraid of his own shadow, he'll bring a gun into a busy store where the chances of him needing it are next to nothing...and this type of gun-carrying "good guy" will not be the hero who thinks on his toes, keeps his cool and saves us all from a "bad guy". The NRA would have us all believe that CCW perm
  4. Thank you for jumping on this one and providing the full results of the poll. The right wing's go-to strategy is to provide incomplete and/or misleading "facts" to their low-information base, knowing full well that few will actually dig deeper on their own. Unfortunately for Hixter, this forum tends to be a little more savvy.
  5. http://www.startribune.com/man-sought-after-gun-discharges-at-fridley-supertarget/361752711/ Whoops. Can't wait to find out if this is a law-abiding citizen or not. Even if the idiot doesn't have a CCW permit, there have been plenty of other examples of people who do have permits but still put the rest of us in danger due to carelessness.
  6. I like this from Buzzfeed: “It is, for instance, entirely fair to call him a mendacious racist, as the politics team and others here have reported clearly and aggressively,” wrote Smith. “He’s out there saying things that are false and running an overtly anti-Muslim campaign. BuzzFeed News’s reporting is rooted in facts, not opinion; these are facts.” http://www.theguardian.com/media/2015/dec/09/buzzfeed-editor-in-chief-donald-trump
  7. That's laughable. The loudest voices on the gun nut side can't see beyond their full and unadulterated worship of all things that go bang when you pull the trigger. They scream about needing to be armed against a tyrannical government, never mind that they'll never see the whites of their enemies' eyes as they launch rockets at that pesky militia from miles and miles away. They freak out when there's talk about limiting magazine size because, apparently, their right to be too lazy to reload trumps everyone else's right to not have a gun with 20-30 rounds pointed at them by a lunatic. And hey,
  8. YES! I was so hoping I'd see something like this as I got caught up on this thread!
  9. I'm sure the police who were on orders to stand down were feeling pretty helpless and frustrated, too. I don't know how you can watch those videos...
  10. I thought the two before this one were a little better, but I've embraced Daniel Craig as my Bond - the only one that I've accepted besides Sean Connery and Roger Moore!
  11. Thank you for not going the "if everyone in the theater had been armed..." route like I've seen elsewhere. I don't know about anyone else, but when I picture that added to the chaos of terrorists squeezing off rounds from their automatic rifles, I see far more people wounded or killed in the crossfire. I wonder what the impact will be on shopping malls over the holiday season? They honestly couldn't have timed this better to not only spread fear but to potentially impact the economy - so many retailers rely on December sales to keep them in the black. Regardless of what one thinks of America
  12. No - don't apologize! It's scary as hell and it sucks that something like this will be in the back of everyone's minds when they go to a show instead of simply on the music where it should be. My husband and I went to "Spectre" this weekend and I found myself thinking about the Colorado movie theater shooting when we sat down. It usually only happens when I see an action flick now, but it's still there.
  13. As a Minnesotan, I always feel like I need to point out that we don't actually talk like that...well, most of us don't. Unless, of course, one's having a boring day at their job that requires them to be on the phone with people from other states. In that case, a working knowledge of the "hotdish and lemon bars in the Lutheran church basement" language can be highly entertaining!
