    They didn't necessarily start out as Drizzt books - it's just that Salvatore realized that's where the audience response and money was, so the ensemble cast shuffled around a bunch.

    He'll just have them thrown out and not care. After which he'll rant about the media bias against him and the deep state or mole men or whatever.

    The President and his press handlers have stuck to a strategy with three parts regarding actual reporters asking him questions.

    The first part is that they are stuffing the official briefings with people from OAN, Fox, and other groups that will lob him super easy questions that are designed for him to hit his talking points. These people are scum, but they're his scum so they get the access and so on. Access is very heavily prized by reporters and unfortunately, they as a collective do not realize that it matters less with this administration than it's ever mattered before - the leaks will find them bc this administration loves to leak. Maggie Haberman had been puffing up Ivanka and Jared for years because they were leaking to her and it's fucked up the country to some degree bc people believe Maggie and she believes them.

    Second, he's bullying the "bold" reporters and sometimes preventing them from getting into the room to ask questions. The reporters he has the biggest problems with are black and women.

    Third, the Trump administration is spinning so much bullshit on so many topics that the reporters mostly can't keep up. They're not equipped to cut through the bullshit over and over and research things in a way that someone like John Oliver can. They don't have the experience and they don't have the gumption/healthcare to continually put their job at risk to call these people out. How do you risk a mortgage and healthcare when the country already believes you're kind of bad at your job and the people with the power fucking hate you? Well, it's a tough decision.

    So I'm guessing I shouldn't worry about Drizzt dying in book 22?

    I think he dies like 3 times in the series.

    I feel ashamed for once arguing here that racism was worse in Europe. They're different flavors, but it's a more entrenched and far more violent and thieving form in the US.

    This series of decisions and charges tells us an enormous amount. It tells us that we are not safe from the police, we are not safe from paramilitary wannabes, we often cannot get justice, we are forced to pay the salaries of people enacting and strengthening the systems and organizations doing this violence, and that large swathes of the media cannot grapple with all of this because it would require tossing out their "there are two sides to every issue" approach.

    Maslany is a top tier actor in terms of skills. I hope she makes tons of money as Hulk and can do Mark Ruffalo style passion projects.

    I love how well you write in discussions. It's like a far more articulate version of me saying things I want to say.

    I needed an excuse to change my profile status so I used it to respond to your incredulity that I am still alive.

    Um, the NEW SANDMAN trades have the Absolute -recolouring-...but the older trades don't. You can see a comparison here at the link below and personally I think it's staggeringly different for tonal value of the panels.

    Oh, and cheers for calling me out on the pics on the election thread, I have a bad habit of not registering if a thread's in Discussion or not but I will cut down on the no content posts there.

    heh, sorry, didn't mean to make it look like you were resentful of my presence or anything. I just felt most comfortable approaching you about it. As QT mentioned there are others who feel the same as him. I'll still be around, but I'm just saying I wouldn't be offended. :p

    By the way, if you guys want to have a Terez-free WoT thread, I wouldn't object to that. To be honest, I probably won't be discussing WoT online much longer anyway. It's not good for me. ;) I'm told some people feel like they have to defend a dissertation to discuss WoT with me. Not true, really, but I get it.

    They've been awful for years, 18 has always made them look better. Enough injuries all over the field to finally show off how awful they are this year.
    Still, dangerous team. Only one position (SS) that can't be replaced by players coming back from injury for playoffs.
