At the Snow Romp Café...


... you can have fun all night.

And if you happen to have any shopping you need to do, entering Amazon through this link will — at no extra cost to you — channel a little money my way. I thank everyone who's been doing that. I do notice, and it does encourage me.

Very nice. The other day you were bashing Chris Christie for not knowing why he was fat.

Well, some Chinese scientists think they might know part of the phenomenon:

The bacterium – known as enterobacter – encourages the body to make and store fat, and prevents it from being used, by deregulating the body’s metabolism-controlling genes.

Maybe it was bad of Christie to not get up there and wax poetic about his fat genes, McDonalds, or big gulp drinks.

Note, I have nothing against fat bashing. When I was young, I had a really hard time with fat people, and used to try to make myself feel guilty about it by thinking, that while thin, I smoked.

This is not bitching, much. Let's have it, Ann. Do you still think Christie should KNOW why he is fat?

Maybe you feel your attacks are justified because you just know.

Fear of being committed may have set off Lanza.

Does that change the dynamic and discussion at all about how we process such events?

Looked at an NBC News story about the Benghazi report, and about halfway down the page, there's a stilled video clip featuring Andrea Miller, who has not aged gracefully. My first thought was that it must be something from the Zombie Apocalypse. Fashion advice: Turtlenecks, high lace collars, anything to cover up that neck!

At first I thought this was satire, but I learned via New York magazine that David Brooks, of all people, will be teaching a "Global Studies" course on "Humility" at Yale this spring.

Yale's online course catalog features the following -- very humble -- course description:

"GLBL 345 01 (23724)
David Brooks

Traditions of modesty and humility in character building and political leadership. Contemporary understandings of character and character building. The premise that human beings are blessed with many talents but are also burdened by sinfulness, ignorance, and weakness. The concept of humility in works by and about Homer, Moses, Augustine, Montaigne, Burke, Niebuhr, Martin Luther King, Jr., and others."

This rant about movie theater patrons is relevant to a recent thread about things that are overrated, such as live performances.

I could put it in that thread, but it seemed too long ago, so I found the most recent "cafe" thread.
