I believe the expectation after such a tragedy is to start arguing about Islam as a religion of peace. Well, if you want to do that, look no further than Yahoo Message boards. :|

Re: The last polls

There is an avalanche of voters, but they're Hispanics and few of them are expected to vote for Trump. As for covert Trump supporters, that's the opposite of what the Trumpites are; there's no reason why they should deceive pollsters to make Trump's support appear less than it is. If anything, to t...

Re: What's wrong with American news media

Re: Minnesota Orchestra's return concert

While I am happy that the musicians, several of whom I know personally, are back in action, the fact that the Minnesota Orchestra Association sent $3.2 million to the Cayman Islands in the month before the lockout deserves a helluva lot of scrutiny that it isn't getting.

Re: Windows Error Reporting

Chances are you accidentally set Sibelius to open ASPX files by default, causing Sibelius to crash since it cannot properly read the file.

Your friend also made the mistake of sending you the web page (in ASPX) that contains links to images rather than the images themselves.
