They're wrong, but let's face it--Chicago isn't on the east coast and it's not on the west coast, and it's so hard to go find a map and see where the border actually is, and it makes their case look so much better if Chicago is included....
In fact, the US-Canada border cuts across all of the great lakes.
I just think it's funny.

Barak Hussein Obama belonged to socialist New Party. Big surprise.
Also, BHO was born in Kenya. That doesn't matter as long as his parents were adult US citizens who had lived in the US for at least 5 years prior to his birth.
...oh, wait: he was born in Kenya to an 18-year-old woman who had not lived the last 5 years in the US, and his father was a Kenyan. But he was born in Hawaii! Moveon.org released a scanned image of a birth certificate that says so!
All the BHO campaign has to do to clear this nonsense up is release his birth certificate. There were questions about McCain's citizenship; he responded by releasing his birth certificate and that was that. Instead, the BHO campaign is stonewalling. Why?
And I like this: Hey, guys, thanks for the free ride; now pay up. Or maybe "what have you done for me lately, bitches?" (But that might be racist.) How interesting that a socialist resorts to capitalism when it suits him.

Gay man harasses underlings, get sued. But everyone knows that sexual harassment lawsuits are only for women; men are supposed to "suck it up and deal with it". Especially when it's homosexual--those men are just homophobic, that's all, and if they were better-adjusted it wouldn't bother them at all.
Look: if it's not right for a man to sexually harass a woman, then it is also not right for a man to sexually harass another man. (Nor is it right for a woman to sexually harass a man.) The people who think the guys should have just ignored it are the kinds of people who think privately, "Hah, it serves those men right! They probably sexually harass women all the time, and even if they don't, men deserve it anyway because they're all pigs! How do you like it?"
If you've got jock itch, you go to the bathroom and apply some antifungal cream--there are plenty of good ones on the market that don't cost a lot, and they work very well. What you don't do is stand around scratching your genitals at people. (Whether you're gay or not; it's not polite.) Certainly you don't make a habit of doing it, to the point that people begin to feel as if they're in a hostile work environment. WTF.

Flourescent kitty! I wants one. It only glows green in UV light, but that's still pretty cool. And the genetic modification doesn't appear to have harmed the critter one bit.

It's Friday, and that means work tonight. Whee!
I was tired yesterday--I went to bed at 6 and slept all fricking night.
...and in one week, it'll be Halloween. Which means I ought to dig out the horror anime, I guess.
