Yeah...they are going to do a prequal to the prequal.

The original BSG was not a prequel.

I like both, hard to say which one is better. I think the last season of Enterprise was great.

I read that they are going to make a BSG spinoff series.

I don't get the allure of NYC either.  It was too dirty and expensive for me and I admit I'm a big city person.  Also the intensity of law firms out there is insane - people work around the clock.  The atmosphere difference between my firms Chicago (Headquarters) and NYC office vs. LA office is HUGE.  West coast is MUCH more laid back which is why I'm headed out there. 

I certainly don't think i would say "much" more laid back. My sister is a USC law alum, and her job afterwards in LA had a good salary but was far from being much more laid back than an NY job.

My cousin and his wife went to Harvard/BU law respectively and both work in LA. When they were first year associates a couple years ago they were both working til midnight.

Granted NY is probably the most intense, but if you want to make 125k in LA when you graduate, you will still have to put in almost as many hours.

Under the guidance of Commissar Karl Rove,

 :D :D :D  Ok, that is enough to make me stop reading Ireland's article.

Thank you for pointing out that SOME republicans are racist and that SOME are homophobic.  I will agree that you are correct on both accounts.  Now will you agree that the majority of republicans are decent folk who have no ill will toward any particular group?

Were you not just talking about painting with a broad brush?

Fair enough.  How about...that is usually the charge used by democratic/liberal/leftsist talking heads?

Majority have NO ill will toward ANY particular group? "Decent people", ok. I think most people in this world are actually decent. It has nothing to do with ill will. I do believe that the majority of republicans do oppose gay rights. To me that IS ill will.

because the republicans have told people a vote for a democrat is a vote against god.

alot of people belive that.

Sad but true...

Erox, I am a big Georgetown fan.  I love DC.  I'm currently considering going there.  But the Dean of Georgetown himself would tell you that you would be crazy to turn down the full ride at UCLA, an incredible school.  Look, I am prestige conscious too, I know about the T14, but saddling yourself with almost 120,000 in debt is not worth it, not for one spot on the ranking, not for any school's specialty program.  Look UCLA is a national school T20 (and #15 at that!!).  Study there, place in the top half (as I'm sure you will based on your scholarhship), and you'll be having your pick among international jobs in the capital.  Now when you say you've already placed a deposit down at GTown does that mean you've accepted?  If so, I would recommend any friend of mine to either cut losses with the deposit and go to UCLA, or inform GULC of the incredible opportunity that you have been awarded and allow them the chance to match it (phrased as politely as possible).  But don't be too polite so that you don't get an answer before the UCLA scholarship expires.

I don't think the OP mentions 120k in debt. He said 18,500 a year and his parents will cover the rest...

If Dallas is so good they should relish this opportunity.  They can play Memphis (who NO championship caliber team should be afraid of, especially with a gimpy Gasol), then go ahead and get the Spurs out the way.  Why would they be afraid to play the Spurs in the 2nd round?  If they're the better team then they should go ahead and get them out of the way and get an easier western finals so they can rest up before playing the east.

Of course, that was if the mavs were as good a team as they think they are.  Its a playoff system, I dont see what theyre crying about.  The regular season proved that they arent even the best team in their own state.  They have a fair shot, if anyone should be complaining, its the spurs.  They have to play the mavs in the 2nd round even though theyre the kings of the west.  Its a wonder why you rarely see any spurs fans complaining or worried about this, but the mavs are squealing like pigs in a slaughterhouse.

The mavs are just going to have to stay what they are, a good 2nd tier team that performs well in the regular season.

Good post. Mark Cuban basically complains when something is not good for the mavs in any way.

Oh, add to the breakdown:
Torture memos/legalese to justify torture
Actual Torture/Lynching all over again is what I like to call it
Erosion of civil liberties (wiretapping, imprisonment without trials)
Secret prisons
Erosion of checks and balances (in a feat unmatched in modern history, he is in his 5th year of presidency without a single veto)

Looking at this list, it does not even seem like I'm referring to America, but alas....


Yes. It's unrecognizable. Even Bin Laden couldn't have dreamed of this kind of success. In soccer, they call that an "own goal".

Great point. If you look at Bush's strategy he couldn't have done a better job of playing right into Bin Laden's plans...

Let us not forget the Katrina fiasco.  Although, there are many to people we can point fingers at, as President it all falls back on his lap, from not taking the warnings serious, appointing an inexperienced cronie as head of Fema, to rejecting the requested additional funding to repair the levies breaking in the first place, having all of our military and financial resources tied up in Iraq so that rescue efforts were delayed for five damn days! ...

He gets another big red F-.

That's why to me at least it doesn't matter what happens in iraq...his presidency was a failure. The hundreds of billions in debt we are taking on to fix iraq unsuccessfully would have been much better spent at home.

I dont think anyone is arguing that the pistons arent good, just that the east is weak

Good?  GOOD?  Unless you're arguing that they're the best team in the league I have to take issue.

I'll agree with that if they can beat the spurs in the finals...
