Congrats. I have so much respect for what you've created here Russell and co. I imagine it's pretty close to your initial idealistic vision (and may have even exceeded it) and I believe it certainly stands alone in NZ media for the quality and humanity of its content and comments - and the awesomnity(TM) of the grammar!!
He's a good man Charlie Brown.

Interesting to have not seen or heard any mention of the passing of Amendment 64 (legalising marijuana in Colorado) in our local news feeds. It's quite a big deal I would have thought.
hope these aren’t too vegan disquieting…
Hey, I resemble that etc...
PA Salad. Mix it up.
Many fine good giggles in this thread....I smell a winner :)
George says things that are applicable to any political question you may have. RIP.
My take is that the Occupy phenomena is essentially one of bearing witness. Pretty apt although I suspect there'll be no forgetting happening soon.
I'm so so so willing it to swell and succeed and to accomplish something historic and I've decided to take my first foray into Civic Square for a chat this week. If I had to take a sign?
I see what you did there.
I see how you're getting away with it.
I can't make you stop on my own.
So I will encourage others to join and act.
And hopefully we will overcome.
Cigarettes do the smoking.....us smokers just suck :)
We live quite high up in the eastern hills of the Hutt Valley and right now, like Sunday evening, it is absolutely dumping snow. Big, fat flakes the likes I haven't seen since living in Colorado a few years back. It's really quite glorious and has kept me off the roads but working from home all week.
Just when you thought things had calmed down, the rampage continues...
A friend of a friend is quite nuts about it all. He tapes all the action while he's at work then watches in the evenings while riding his race bike on rollers in the living room. Each year he does the same thing and generally covers about 80-90% of the course in 'real' time.
