    • Thanks! Another goody: “Fundamentals of Publicly Verifying Election Outcome Accuracy” on: http://kathydopp.com/wordpress/

      Ya know, all these uprisings highlight what democracy is. In WI, it’s unions; the workplace an oligarchy, protected by KochWalkerstan minions, like this county clerk.
      I’d gladly be 1 watcher! Then we’d all go to Mickey’s Tavern..

    I wonder if Sam ever listens to Studio 360. I seem to remember him mentioning on Seder on Sundays or BRL that he liked a book by Kurt Anderson.

    Anyway, they had a piece on there” last weekend with a guy who made a corpus of all the words ppl used to self-describe in online-dating profiles. Top word for Wooster was “obnoxious.”


  10. Catching up on yesterday’s pod…

    Re: poison ivy –

    To say I react badly to poison ivy would be an understatement. At one point a few years ago, I lived in this little duplex. I discovered I had a very bad reaction to the back yard.

    So one day this guy comes around the neighborhood asking to mow yards. I thought “Cool, I can get this done without breaking out!” The guy mowed the yard, but I paid for it… more than just financially.

    My only interaction with the outdoors that afternoon was to answer the door and accept his services, then I open the door when he was done to hand him the cash. Within half an hour of that second interaction, my face had totally broken out. The mowing had aersolized the poison and my two minute interaction was enough to cover my face with enough poison ivy to give me trouble for days after.

    I don’t know if the poor guy who did the mowing had a similar reaction…..

    That back yard was neve mowed again while I was there.

    As a former employee of a large NPR member station, I howled when you cleverly and correctly described KCRWs (Matt Miller’s) show “Right, Left and Center” as “Everybody’s Right, but I’m MORE Right!” POW, Sam! Seriously, you just described the entirety of NPRs programming. NPRs “view from nowhere” and “he said/she said objectivity” is exactly why now I financially support shows like Democracy Now, Kunstlercast, The Majority Report, and yes, WTFPod. Thanks for the chuckle. You earned my contribution today.
