Re: 2018 Nebraska Elections

I understand that some people deserve to die, and, if someone ever did something like that to someone I love, I would want to slowly torture them to death over the course of several years. That said, the understandable rage and anguish of people affected by atrocities should not be the basis of law...

Re: Official: Aksarben Village

It seems they have a long way to go yet. Each morning this week there has been a lot of drywall staged outside apparently still waiting for install. So they're not even finished mudding yet. Maybe they can make it but man this has been a slow project.
