Re: Happy Inauguration Day (and beyond- The Biden Presidency Thread part I)

perfect example is an AP story about, oh, let's say Trump's tax returns. the story is big and significant enough to be put as the main modular story on numerous mainstream news outlets. it's buried to a small and friendlier "fact-based" headline past the scroll point on other news outlets. it's the ...

If Stafford got a career restart 10x, how many of those 10 Staffords win a super bowl? He seems like he was really good with never good enough support.

Buying in bulk or stocking up is anathema to how I like to shop so costco et all can suck it. this is also a common misconception. I do weekly/biweekly grocery shopping at costco. not everything is in bulk. and the rotisserie chickens are way better (and cheaper) than any grocery store around here.
