5/10    Let's say I have the following DOM:
        node1 - (contains divs with name="subject", name="author", etc)
        node2 - (contains divs with name="subject", name="author", etc,
                 and contains other recursive nodes too)
        Yes, 1 node can encapsulate other nodes. Is there a way in
        js/DOM to say "From nodeX, I want to fetch all of my immediate
        (non grandchildren) children with name='subject'"?
        \_ this looks like a job for xpath
        \_ You can look at the nextSibling property and look for the name

5/11    The Dark Side of Diversity by Pat Buchanan (townhall)
        I always knew Pat Buchanan was a crank, but this reaches
        whole new levels.
        \_ He's an isolationist, and has been for a long time.
        \_ IOW: "I never liked Pat and disagree with everything he says so
           I'm posting a random link that is mostly just a list of non-citizens
           who have gone on killing sprees and then delcaring him a crank in
           an effort to troll the motd".
           \- pat robertson is a good example of "if you put one foot in ice
              water and one foot in boiling water, on average you are ok"
           \- patrick buchanan is a good example of "if you put one foot in
              ice water and one foot in boiling water, on average you are ok"
              fallacy. i think he's reasonable and insightful about many things
              and has made some astute predictions [these arent about his
              opinions but his ability to make predictions, so that's a
              skill, if you will], but he certainly has some reprehensible
              views which dont get "averaged out" ... although he isnt
              any where close to the top of by "needs a beating" list.
              anywhere close to the top of by "needs a beating" list.

5/11    Mars also facing global warming:
        \_ So says the science editor of the Murdoch-owned Sunday Times.
           Mars != Earth.  The leed is misleading bullshit.  Can't speak
           to the underlying research.  Haven't seen it.
        \_ That's been known for a while.  The NASA WAG is that the albedo has
           darkened due to storm patterns, so it's absorbing more energy.
            \_ I've also heard planet wobbling used to explain it away.
               Not sure if the multiple explanation makes me more likely to
               discount it as evidence of solargenic :) warming or less.

        I just found out trollers have their own category on the categorizer.
        How do I get my own category? I want to be immortalized.

5/11    How do AFRICAN AMERICANS come up with names for babies? I mean,
        how in the world did they come up with Moeisha, Lotisha, ShaNayNay,
        Lashanda, Mashequila, Shakisha, DeShawn, Darnell, Jamal, etc
        \_ Some have arabic or african roots, but are a number of steps
           removed, linguistically.  For example, Shanene is, IIRC, a many
           times transliterated version of janeanne. Many, as partha points
           out, are directly arabic/african. --scotsman
        \- er in the "which of these doent belong" spirit, jamal is probably
           from the common arabic name. same for say shaquil variants.

5/11    Kiss free speech goodbye.
        \_ Random overly-sensational not particularly descriptive comment.
           \_ A congressional caucus got together to threaten the advertisers
              of a PBS documentary.  How is that overly-sensational?
              \_ It implies that there was some sort of official move on the
                 part of the government to end all free speech. It brings to
                 mind visions of Orwellian dystopias. Instead, what you have is
                 the market being brought to bear on the sponsors of a film,
                 and subsequent pressure from those sponsors on the maker of
                 the film. Burns is not obligated to listen to his sponsors,
                 and his sponsors are not obligated to pay attention to threats
                 from activist groups; that they did so bespeaks of nothing
                 more than a lack of conviction that the film in its original
                 form was worth fighting to the death for.
                 \_ Again, a CONGRESSIONAL CAUCUS threatened the advertisers.
                    \_ You appear to have difficulty evaluating the actual
                       significance of events.
