Thread Name: BS: Disaster for the Democrats?
Subject: RE: BS: Disaster for the Democrats?
You should probably watch the entire Lessig video, Jack. It's about a great deal more than corn syrup, and it describes the USA's governmental problem perfectly. It will only take 18 minutues of your life to watch the whole video.

Hawk, you are coming across as more and more smug and preachy. In fact I did watch the whole video. After the first 5 minutes of poorly presented BS, I watched the remaining 13 minutes out of respect for Kat and Janie and others who said it was important. My feedback to Lessig, if he were to ask for it would be, "The next time you give the lecture, leave out the BS, because the BS make you look, put politely, less than learned."

Please note Little Hawk that I did not ask for a lecture from you about how I should spend "18 minutues of" my life. I feel that I am very capable of deciding that for myself. On the other hand if you have any opinions on the merits of specific points of the talk I would be happy to discuss them with you as an equal as I tried to do with the point about the corn syrup.
