"Off to the big city" open thread.


And the first inaugural K-W blogger beer was a success, with "M@", "Idealistic Pragmatist", "Pretty Shaved Ape" and yours truly in attendance. Beer was imbibed, nachos were consumed and numerous individuals were insulted in absentia. And, yeah, you were probably one of them.

Back this evening. Try not to compare anyone to Hitler while I'm gone.

You should write a kind of a roman à clé of post length about that.

The Heuther Hotel is the old Kent Hotel in downtown Waterloo isn't it? I have fond, if very blurry, memories of it in the late 80s when it was my refuge from the trendiness of places like Fed Hall at the U of W.

Can we compare people to Stalin? Come on... that's more fun, and much less of a cliche? What about Mao?

Come on.. you have to give us somebody that we can ratchet up our rhetoric with and accuse people of being like such mass-murdering mad-men? :)

OK, how about ... this guy? Um ... the one on the right, if you weren't sure.

CC: did you mean on the right or on the "right"? Or IN the right (although I didn't see any of those in the picture).

Oops, that's just the kind of joke Mao would have made, if he'd been fond of English puns...
