In your honor we could call it after you: " Mr. Bizarre Way", after all it is your preferred word, the one you toss around like idiomatic IEDs, to cover up for your lack of originality. One way only, please!
For those unique individuals who just cannot fathom what "tongue in cheek " entails, I say they should stay as shallow and concrete as a piece of cement. These deficits are certainly of no fault of their own, not a laughing matter either, but decidedly something to be lamented. Lack of imagination, and for the capacity to abstract is indeed in the new DSM V, but with a new name! Should I say more about "tongue in cheek" whimsical, figurative expressions for the benefit of these guys? Nah, man!
Pearl, darling! You know so much about the environment, you want to jump straight into ...T bills and muni bonds? You reminded me about my 5 year old daughter. At age 5 she was very disapointed when, on March 21, she woke up expecting to see all the spring flowers in our garden, birds chirping away and bambies trotting around. Of course it takes time to divest from anything. It is called transition! We have the infrastucture we have, to carry us until a transition takes us to more healthy renewable energy resourses. It takes time to adjust to a more sensible paradigm shift.
Here is a question for a clever lady. Can you stand a raw egg on its end on the equinox? What the heck, here is the answer. On a recent test, for 3 consecutive days, 17 out of 20 eggs stood standing, not 100% but close. Now, that's evidence base research! This is due to the tilt of the earth relative to the sun which is zero in equnox (spring). But if we continue to trust oil companies and polluters all over the world, we will invariably have a hell of an omolette when trying this test in the future!

I lived in Europe for 6 years. Traffic lights are a thing of the past. Round-abouts helps traffic to continusly move. They eliminate traffic jams and save time and gas money to drivers.
Do a round-about on 9th street and Rose, and another one on Rose at the end of the Mall.
Do a recreational park and a bicycle lane in betwen the side walk and the train tracks. Provide for 4-5 parking spots every so often.
Start an "adoption program" for volunteers to help in the ground keeping of the park. Rotary, Lions Clubs, Exchange (and others) come to mind.
These changes will give Rose a lovely "boulevardian" appearance with the sycamore tree line in the middle! We could even change its name to "Rose Boulevard".
The PJM Interconnected Regional Grid, which includes 13 states from New Jersey to Illinois represents one fifth of the US total electric grid. An ongoing research found renewable energy cost effective, and is getting better when you add the extra benefits from the capacity to store such energy. By 2030 it is expected that renewable energy could fully powered a large city grid in its totality. As we speak moderate size electrical systems could be run entirely on stored renewable energy. This is no archaic hypothesis! Windmills have been in the human mind since before "El Quijote". This is modern science at its best.
Further information about this could be found in one of the 70 energy related volumes Mr. Singleton has on his pesonal library. Or just check " Popular Mechanics" monthly articles about the subject. For electric cars myths, please check today's UB.
What the heck, just check it out on any of the websites related to renewable energy!
Incidentally, I really appreciate your concerns about eagles. Let's add that one to the spotted owl's list!
Steve, we "tree huggers" are winning the battle! Just look around...everywhere, all over the country you now can see windmill farms producing power for millions of homes and industries. Solar energy is getting better and better, saving millions to consumers. Cars are now less polluting than ever...and getting better and more efficient. Research is advancing in obtaining power from the oceans. Green energy, all over the world is thriving, producing millions of jobs and benefiting consumers who are now saving money from cheap power. Programs for reforestation are promoted worldwide as we speak. Let's keep at it with resolve and dedication and stop the incredible damage to the environment by insensitive polluters . We are on the moral side of this debate and we will win for the benefit of Humanity.
The "VAST" majority of our Walla Walla community, both liberalas and conservative are nice people who are concerned about keeping it as one of the best towns to live in America. Nobody needs to move "to the westside" . We liberals are contributing to our society in all wakes of life, and as much as conservatives have. We are here to stay! Disagreeing in sexual orientation is not the same as refusing to serve a customer just because of sexual orientation. Likewise giving respectfull customer service to a gay person does not mean agreeing with his or her sexual orientation.
I just cannot imagine one of my gay friends treated with the incredible rejection of being denied service at any Walla Walla business because of their sexual orientation. So far it hasn't happened, and I hope it will never, never happens.
Sorry to disapoint you! I just refused to be dragged into the mud hole where some poeple role over in a delight of joy.
I'm a liberal who has voted for Mike Hewitt many times. He is a nice person with whom I now disagree; strongly enough I will not vote for him in the future. He does not represent the modern reality of the Country nor the reality of Walla Walla of today and its future.
It is ironic that a man with such mentality "welcomes" all these "liberals" to his Walla Walla Nursery when in fact he wishes they should be shopping somewhere else, with people of their own class. I've noticed that the overwhelming majority of his staff are migrant workers which is positive. One only hope he is paying them a decent (minimun) salary and grants them proper health care benefits.
