      Major Update to OL (please click to open)   02/09/2016

      Sorry for the inconvenience, but we had to update OL and there have been some serious changes made by IPB. The real bad news is that they had to merge User Names and Display Names. This meant that I had to choose between bad and bad. I opted to keep the log-on information the same, so you can get on OL like you always did, but now your User Name is displayed. If your User Name and Display Name were the same, you will not feel the change. If they were different, you are probably irritated right now. I will figure out how you can change this so you can revert to the Display Name you used before if you like, however this may entail a change in how you log-on. The good news is that OL is now searchable from the very beginning. This means all the old posts from the A-Team in Objectivism (and everybody else) will finally show up when you search for something. I will keep changing this announcement as we adapt to these new changes. It's a pain, I know, but after looking around the backend for a bit, I believe the benefits will far, far outweigh the current irritation. They changed things in a hamhanded way and I don't like that, but I can't do anything about it. Benefit-wise, they actually did a good job, so please bear with us. In addition to this change, many good things are coming over time. You are the reason OL exists and I am sorry you have to go through this. Think of it like birth pangs... (All right, all right, that's forcing it.  ) Michael

  1. World Series 2015 guess who is going

    No joy in Mudville North.
  2. On the dumber side, I should alert you to the only sole message of the Conservative attack ads, with which we of the dumber side of radio listeners have had to hear it seems forever."Justin Trudeau, he's just not ready."Yeah I know, iit is not on the order of he's a serial murderer, but this is Canada. These ads are so pervasive that even the most conservative Harper-cheerleader paper here, the Sun, ran a cartoon that said, "If they don't stop saying that, I'm going to vote for him."
  3. The uh, Blue Jays. I admit that baseball is the most complete fan experience you can get. It is a slow game so you can see the impossible athleticism and precision of the dazzling catches and plays of the defence ,and the focused power and skill of the offence right down to base running. I have been loving watching them. But oh, oh....if I could I would give up this whole gorgeous season for one Leafs run at the Cup, Baseball to me is like the totally eligible guy with every admirable quality and accomplishment, and you do admire and are in awe of the accomplishment. But he isn't, you know, hockey. \ So even if the Yanks do win the pennant I will still speak to Adam. (What do you think of A,rhymes with God? this season)?
  4. Nice one. But as to politics, the elephant in the room, the world in which my domestic fantasies will maybe becoming true as we go leftward... the abysm of misery which is Syria, has become a key election issue now. Thanks to the power, and the glory, sometimes, of immediate social media. A different issue than your immigration issue, but maybe not so different.
  5. Wassail to Nicholas Dykes -happy birthday

    Reactivate your account, you stubborn old git. Many more, etc.
  6. If I weren't such a conscientious citizen I would vote Rhinoceros.
  7. Donald Trump

    Now you all know what it is like to be Canadian...about time too. If the Trump supporters are like the RoFo supporters were here.. intractably stupid, yet considering that a virtue..god and galt both help you/.
  8. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

    This year I hope to be again at my hometown for the International Festival, when we walk across the bridge with no ID and drink deeply of chea;p American beer and stagger back across the bridge full of goodwill. I have a photo from the local paper of my father and the American chief border officer, clinking coffee cups in the middloe of that bridge at an anniversary of our founding as neighbours. America has always been to me my friends and relatives and yet a foreign country, beloved but unknowble, and it always will.
  9. Donald Trump

    Mwa-ha-ha. It is the Queen of Air and Darkness. You always knew it. Ware tomorrow! Welll, that would be me, sorry -- Ware today!@
  10. Here is my reaction to the Greek crisis: it may be a coincidence, but my crazy old Greek landlord has gone over there since it happened, and I am assuming that he is informing the government that the country has collapsed because they did not keep it clean enough, which is what he told me about the freezer on my 17-year-old fridge. (The rest of the fridge , equally squalid indeed moreso, continued to work fine)-- upon cleaning my oven of even more antique vintage. I broke the old corroded element and rendered it unusable-- how can I confront him with this catastrophe? AH, the isles of Greece, the isles of Greece, where burning Sappho loved and sung--where grew the arts of war and peace--stay over there, where you were young!

    Re #34, and #93 --I would though -- and I do! Shame on the AntiWilliamites! Finger wagging is the Canadian idea of fun, at least in the offseason,
  12. I have always said that WTL was Rand's best novel, qua, as she would have said, novel. Kira is the only real human character she ever created, although Cheryl comes a close second. Of course she killed them both off. Once again I wish she had continued writing novels in her native language, even though I could not have read them properly.
  13. The Exploitation of Trayvon Martin

    Oh, I forgot Adam - that would be triplets.
  14. The Exploitation of Trayvon Martin

    Careful gentlemen, or the Truth will come out that you are twins Separated at Birth.
  15. I have not read any of this thread,and I sure never want to, but I would like to congratulate Las Vegas for the most blackly humorous topic title I've ever read here.
