  2. I've campaigned? Shit, NVGiant 2020! What good has that consistency done? They tea party failed at the only thing it wanted to accomplish. It imploded the so-called "grand bargain," a compromise bill that the adults agreed to and the closest we'll come to a deficit deal, because it wasn't exactly what they wanted. They never grasped that they live in a country where they held a minority opinion. So they are kind of just as shitty as the rest, and even more delusional. But hey, they get to pat themselves on the back for remaining consistent. Goody.

    What’s Up With Kawhi?

    There are some pretty phucking shitty comments about Kawhi made above from a few people I would not have expected it from. How many of you had to endure having your father murdered when you were 16 right after a major military base which had supplied the lion's share of good jobs in the area was closed by the Department of Defense so that the local economy went into the toilet? As to Kawhi's uncle, do y'all hate Lonzo Ball just because his father is an asswipe? Smh . . .

    Dennis Hof has died

    Seriously, the NV GOP dodged a bullet here. They were talking about not seating him, not letting him caucus with anybody. Basically shunning him. I went to Death valley last weekend so I drove through some Hof country and on the way home saw some billboards for "Laxalt, Hof and Heller - the winning team". I don't think Heller or Laxalt approved that message.

    I never read As I Lay Dying. But I was lucky enough as an undergrad to take a southern lit class from a Faulkner scholar, and so reading Sound and the Fury with him was just great. I know if I read it on my own I wouldnt have been as in to it.

    One of the things that's great about Catcher is that 16 year old boys read it and can relate to it because they're effing self-absorbed idiots (as I was at 16), and when they read it again as adults they read it how it's meant to be read - as you state above.

    East of Eden, Grapes of Wrath. Those are some American literature books.

  10. Air Force and UNLV both scored first on us. It seems as if our Defense has to adjust a bit before stopping teams. The 2nd and 3rd quarter is when we have been in Rythm and really killing teams. We have a good D not a phenomenal one. i think Wyo may go out fast and score and after adjustments we will take it to you. The other TD is in 4th qtr garbage time. Our 2’s aren’t up to snuff right now. Against BYU of course we just completely and utterly destroyed them from the word go😵. Which of course was to be expected. There was no offense to adjust to. But it has been taking a quarter to warm up in general this year. So 1 warm up TD, 1 in garbage time and a field goal in the middle. That is what my crystal ball says anyway.🙄

    His efficiency was remarkable and his steal rate was very high. I believe he was 2nd in the league in bpm

    So do I, but my life resembles Mr. Incredible’s more than it ever did a 50’s northeastern prep school flunkie. The reason none of the characters are relatable is they’re not meant to be. Holden is telling the story of his nervous breakdown from a bed in a mental hospital. He spins his behavior as everybody else being the problem because when he looks critically at himself for even a minute he falls apart completely. He’s a loser who flunked out of school, gets his ass kicked twice, can’t relate to girls, is fixated on one as some ideal, and isn’t liked because he isn’t likeable. Nobody in the story is relatable because Holden can’t relate to anyone. And all of his bad behavior is driven, unbeknownst to him or anyone else, because he is severely depressed with grief over his dead brother. Once I got older I saw that the teacher Mr. Antolini is very relatable if you believe Holden got the situation wrong. Holden thinks he is trying to molest him, but I don’t trust Holden. I think Antolini is a family friend who sees this young man falling apart and is genuinely trying to give him help, even if he gets a little drunk and creepy. It’s not sexual, but compassionate. I don’t think Catcher in the Rye is the great American novel, and I can see how you just might not have enjoyed the experience. But it’s damn good, and Salinger crafts a story that is more complex and profound than just teenage angst and rebellion.

    For someone who spends so much time calling UNLV fans dumb, you're not looking to bright. UNLV hasn't lost money from poor attendance. UNLV's attendance has always been consistently bad, and it is more or less the same under Sanchez as it was under Huck and Sanford. Also, UNLV hasn't lost money from donations to the program. If anything, UNLV has raised more money with Sanchez than almost any other football coach. Sanford and Hauck were abysmal at fund raising, and Sanchez has blown them away. With that said, I don't think Sanchez is a good football coach. He tried to bring in experienced coordinators and ended up getting guys who were way over the hill. He has done a terrible job at recruiting quality quarterbacks, one of the most important positions on the team. His team quit on him last year and they appear to be quitting on him again this year. I think he should be gone at the end of the year, but UNLV will probably give him another year because we don't have the funds to pay his buyout.

    I'd be up for that... I'm actually planning on re-reading some jack london soon anyways. My all-time favorite piece of American Lit is the A Good Man is Hard to Find and Other Short Stories collection by Flannery O'Connor, so that would be mine. I think she's the most underrated American writer of the 20th Century. Let me think of a novel. it might take a bit of brain searching.

    Yeah, I’m with Rougue on this one. It’s not like some other hire would have brought them a ton of wins. They’re just a bad program. Sanchez or no Sanchez...wouldn’t have made a difference. At least they’re getting a football complex built out of it.

    Nah, that would be fine. We should probably compare books within genres though. We could for instance compare jack londons short stories to one you had in mind. I’m not terribly well read in fiction, but I’d be interested in this book club/book debate idea you have in mind. I’d obviously need time to read the ones I haven’t read yet.

    Saudis butcher Jamal Khashoggi at Istanbul Consulate

    New details. This sure sounds like an "interrogation gone wrong"....Holy shit. They cut him up while he was still alive. https://www.middleeasteye.net/news/exclusive-khashoggi-829291552?fbclid=IwAR0d4SnqLoFcxOFvE_-eu8A_pWeEPL9d70jthKaugNJ2Ywolov1hOXzqPQ8

    I know The Sound and the Fury typically ranks higher in most people's lists, but I prefer As I Lay Dying as my favorite Faulkner book. In short story form, The Lottery by Shirley Jackson is one of the most disturbing, yet actually still relevant today, stories that I've read. I had to read it for an English Lit class in '99, and it has stuck with me to this day. If you want to go a little more recent, then Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy ranks very high on my list as well.
