        ......I have seen in a long time. Even with conventions that are basically "infomercials" this has been a cut above and a VERY impressive showing. All "A list" Dems in a clear and unified message that is substantive and tells the voter what they are getting. There's some serious things on the line this election, and many of those items have been articulated here. Big Dog just set off a freakin' earthquake, aiding Obama in further shifting the political foundations of the country - AGAIN.

        I have oft lamented that the centrism blurring the lines of more recent politics has yielded too moderated of a result, but it seems that the crazy push of the right on so many fronts has finally crystallized into the Democrats making a unified pushback on issues we all believe in.

        And it's been a LONG time coming - and I hope it becomes a habit.

          Notice the Dems have also picked a shade of blue that isn't so blaring?

            Never unsderstood the faux columns. Except as ref.to Springfield where campaign launched and Joe intoduced. Then theu made sense . Gotta look me up some youtubies. Didnt think of Springfield till now. Agree on better blue, but then this site is about more and betterDems. Thus blues.

              leftover aluminum tubes? After all, it was d'enfer, with nostalgia for actual stone-cut columns . . . though perhaps they could have replicated the relatively nearby sandstone at Red Rocks in this part of the world.

                and agree it would be great. plus a ref to the new deal,as the CCC built it.
                amazing place.
                but not recognizable outside of CO.
                as for d'enfer, I am not getting what was from hell = enfer-- the only other d'enfer i know is the collection of forbidden books in the French national library (=library of congress).  
                talking about OT. any kossians who see this must be saying what the hell...are they talking about.. ha ha

                  Especially once far away from it in NYC.
                  Wild to hear LC has that bit of bibliothèque nationale in it! Nothing about that in the readings at Columbia's library school.
                  Kossians take note!

                  •  I meant Fr nat lib is their LC. not one in other (0+ / 0-)

                    So my point was the the only enfer i knew other than the theological one of hell was the BNF as it is called once forbidden collection of erotic books and prints.

                    No longer forbidden, it is a subject of scholarly research, had a published catalogue in 1913, and in '07, it even has had an exhibit of its contents

                    authors: Sade, of course
                    Japanese prints
                    erotic photos

                    so LC will have the books; whether prints and photos has the second is a question you will have to ask http://catalog.loc.gov/

                    Books from France's hell
