I have one friend who is local, often available and not someone I used to date (which are more acquaintances than friends, by mutual choice). And he started dating someone, so he's understandably less available. I worry I'm going to be like Paul Rudd in I Love You Man, but less successful.

Talk to my brother and SIL. If I get a response that shows even some modicum of consideration for my feelings, then I'll express my view tsar this wasn't OK but move on. If they dig their heels in, then they get disinvited, because their feelings about my friendship will be clear.

If we allowed ourselves to be overwhelmed by every mass shooting in America, we'd never be able to actually do anything ever.

I was in high school when Columbine happened. We stopped my American History class and watched it unfold.

I don't really know how bullfighting works, and I'm not in the mood to go watching bullfighting videos, but is there no way to maintain the pageantry and spectacle without stabbing and slashing the animal to death? If you're as good a bullfighter as they say, dodging the bull should be one hell of a show in itself.

I always loved the Disney cartoon when I was a kid, though it's been so long since I've seen it. It's likely packed with racist imagery.

I can do that. I'm sorry I didn't see this until now; damn multiple Kinja accounts! We're good - I've written a million things that I missed much worse on with tone.

I'm actually in Portland now! But I suppose I can cross the river, even though I think it's against the rules for me now that I'm on the Oregon side. :)

It was based heavily on my own observations (which may well have been the problem in the first place). The statistics may bear out that white men aren't the main users of e-cigs, but the people I overwhelmingly see using them in nominally no-smoking areas tend heavily to be white men. Still, I should know as well as Read more

I get where you're coming from, though I think that's more of a philosophical difference than anything. I also have titled my more substantive posts with things like "Yes, Your Friend May Be a Rapist", and yes, it's meant to draw more eyeballs, but I don't find anything inherently wrong with that. And yeah, there are Read more

Not a bit! I didn't notice a lot of jerkiness, really. Even the more aggressive comments made pretty solid points.

I'm actually in the middle of writing something right now. Be sure to tell me if it sucks. :)
