because i often feel like threads often result in looking like the cat scratched end of a living room couch, i began to slowly avoid the Politics Forum. but sometimes you read, hear or in this case, see something that makes you miss having a venue to engage in a little righteous discourse... hopefully.
last night's episode of Real Time and the subsequent Overtime segment online - which was hosted by Seth McFarlane "of Two and a Half Men" was one of those times.
the guests were an Astrophysicist, an Economics Professor at U.C. Berkley, the Editor of Salon.com, a former special assistant to the chief of naval operations in the Pentagon cum banker cum Tea Party movie producer, and a chef.
the discussion was equally varied and quite enlightening, and both Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson and Anthony Bourdain were off the hook!
i guess alls i'm saying is that there were a number of things mentioned by the panel that i thought would have made for further interesting discussion.
