This is why you should use Internet Explorer 9 (Download Squad)

Oct 1st 2010 11:19AM So, can I install IE9 without trashing my AOL 9.5?

Dr. Laura Schlessinger to Retire From Radio, 'Regain First Amendment Rights' (VIDEO) (AOL TV)

Aug 18th 2010 9:29AM The first amendment protects individual speech from government action. There's no government action here, simply response to the means she chose to express herself. What she apparently wants is a forum in which she can speak without fear of the consequences.

Moviefone Minute: Tom Cruise Hunts Vamps and Mel Gibson's New Job (Moviefone Blog)

Aug 8th 2010 9:24PM Gibson's bigotry, misogyny and generally foul-minded persona are too deeply embedded in my mind to ever willingly suspend my disbelief for any film he appeared in or directed. Too, I'm simply not inclined to do anything that would keep such an ass in the public eye.

Microsoft patents portable applications? I don't think so. (Download Squad)

May 8th 2010 11:41AM Maybe there's more in the patent app, but it seems to me that it's a bit obvious: I have an application that competes with portable open source apps and so want mine to be portable but not capable of duplication. So, I lock the copy on the portable device. Maybe the patent's intended to cover the locking method.

Five Possible Jeannies for the Big Screen 'I Dream of Jeannie' (AOL TV)

Apr 24th 2010 1:19PM Isla Fisher, without her husband.

Michele Bachmann: No Evidence Black Lawmakers Were Harassed (Politics Daily)

Mar 29th 2010 9:21PM Remember that Rep. Bachmann also said recently that it wasn't a Republican that yelled "baby killer" on the floor of the House, shortly before a Republican Representative from Texas admitted he'd said it.

Joe Lieberman Takes Lead on Repealing 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' (Politics Daily)

Feb 22nd 2010 10:34PM If you're afraid to have a gay man at your back in war, then you're the one with a problem. Thousands of gay men and women have served in all branches of the military, with records to match those of straight men and women. They've been wounded and killed right alongside the rest of the forces. Sexaul preference is not a disease or a mental illness. While I personally think it's part of a normal bell curve distribution of human sexuality, it really doesn't matter whether the preference is physiological, psychological or simply a matter of taste, any more than does one's choice of religions, political parties or reading material.

Bill to Criminalize Bestiality Advances in Alaska Legislature (Politics Daily)

Jan 27th 2010 9:44AM Odd that they haven't had one before. Has the culture changed?

Should America Be English-Only -- or Speak More Than One Language? (Lemondrop)

Jan 26th 2010 6:15PM I just knew I was going to find vehement disagreement with the proposal, much of it couched in "we're Americans!" language. Lo and behold - there it is. Give it a rest, buckos.

I remember standing outside the gates of Disneyland in '78 or so, when it had closed for the first time ever due to heavy rains in the days before. A Japanese couple stood there with me, trying to understand my comic attempts to translate the "We'll be open tomorrow" sign through hand gestures.

No one is suggesting five languages on every sign in America. But it would be helpful in our major international airports and tourist areas, both for visitors who forgot to pack their English and for the businesses hoping for their trade.

How Did J.Lo Ever Wear That Outfit? (PopEater)

Jan 6th 2010 6:59PM The only thing that was supposed to drop new year's eve was the ball in Times Square.
