Then their statements before and during the Civil War were completely about slavery, pretty much nothing else. In fact, their constitution was practically the same as that of the Union, with the addition of slavery being explicit. And, the secession statements that were given state that slavery was the reason for secession.

    Taking statements made after the Civil War at face value is stupid. These people had lost their attempt at secession. Their words were likely to be covering themselves so that they could re-assimilate into the US.

    Oops, not the Senate.

    I'm saddened to hear the news of the terrible fire at Notre-Dame de Paris. So many times fires have been started by people making efforts at restoration. We can only hope that as much of the building that can be salvaged will. It looks pretty bad right now.

    It's terrible, but there is humor to be found.

    It might have also been an electrical fire. With a building that old, a spark could set it easily ablaze.

    I can't imagine what the French are feeling right now. I have no words.

    Madness does not always howl. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "Hey, is there room in your head for one more?"

    I is before E except after C, then it's chaos man, mass chaos! Letters coming together into words, but then you go English and they put U's in places that just shouldn't go there... AHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

    My sanity left town along time ago and didn't leave a forwarding address. It's not missed.

    It honestly is terrible (though it sounds like it might not be as bad as was feared), but when a lot of people were asking how the fire started, someone posted a 'shopped pic showing Drogon flaming the cathedral, and I had to really curb myself from both laughing publicly or re-posting it.
    It's a long way down and everything's broken
    It's crazy what some will do for love

    It's a long way down and the dark road is a serpent
    But you and I are not so different

    You can wish what you want
    Let us guide you home
    But we are not yours
    You better leave the stars alone

    Some give us names
    Some give us chains
    And some just try to give us away in vain
    We might be maidens
    We might be queens
    But we are not made to realize your dreams

    Just got the news that Deimos, the founder of Demonoid, was killed in an accident. Sad news.

    And that probably kills demonoid ever coming back. It's a shame, it's never been what it was, but I always hoped it'd make a come back.

    Man, I know I have a thing for tools, but I am really inordinately excited to get the sheet-metal hole-puncher that I ordered. I really hope it's as decent as the reviews implied, since I went for the mid-level price range one.
