re: Seeing a bunch of Doug Jones signs - Ham And Glass
Anecdotal I know, but I've spoken to several right-leaning friends who will not vote for Roy Moore. Note that most profess to be evangelical Christians. ...

re: Traveling and safety in Rome and Florence - Ham And Glass
Trastevere, especially if you can stay relatively close to the Tiber, is good advice. It's walkable, especially at night, and just has a different feel. Most of the area around Colosseum is fine, but its chaotic. I personally wouldn't want to stay there or near Termini. ...

re: Today is election day in Birmingham, Alabama - Ham And Glass
I get what Spleen is saying. Of course the very small number of city residents that are interested enough to vote will vote in their own self-interest. We all do. However, this embarrassingly small group of citizens have now elected a man whose ideology will probably negatively impact a very lar...

re: My English skills have gone from bad to terrible - Ham And Glass
Apparently, your skills are not as bad as they could be or you would have typed, "My skills have went from bad to terrible." I employ a few girls from rural areas to do some administrative work and they always use the word went in place of gone. It drives one of the older men in our group nuts. ...

re: Helping of Crow - Ham And Glass
My neighbor keeps saying that Moore winning is in some ways a repudiation of Trump, too. I'm not sure about that, but either way this election is clearly a case of voters in Alabama having [i]terrible[/i][i]terrible[/i] choices and not liking to be told what to do. ...

re: High School cheerleaders make Trump-themed run-thru for football game. - Ham And Glass
This isn't a commentary on whether it is right or not, but I'm betting that if you'd walked into just about any inner-city school over the last years, you could find a shrine to President Obama within the first 50 steps. ...

re: Train from Paris to London - Ham And Glass
Plus, train schedules in London, while not perfect, seem to be a little more reliable than airlines, and a heck of lot more reliable than the black cabs (see strikes, traffic, construction, etc.) Having been delayed at Heathrow and caught in a cabbie strike on the way from the airport, you could eli...

re: Train from Paris to London - Ham And Glass
It doesn't look like anyone addressed your question on views. There are very few 'views' on the train. Most of it is underground/water. I agree that $350 sounds too steep. I also agree that the convenience of taking the train is generally worth it. ...

re: Anthony Bourdain's Threat to Poison POTUS - Ham And Glass
Ignatius said to Jones (and potentially Bourdain)(when Jones asked how to get above the minimal wage): "You cannot possibly realize how confused you really are. Your value judgements are all wrong. When you get to the top or wherever it is you want to go, you'll have a nervous breakdown. Go live ...

re: Anthony Bourdain's Threat to Poison POTUS - Ham And Glass
Bourdain is a talented but anguished artist whose misery is rewarded by those who consume his product. There is no end to his misery. And he'll have to increase his misery to keep himself and his followers interested. Doing a show in post-Brexit London was a perfect example of this. My guess is ...

re: Do you find yourself getting soft ( hearted) in your old age - Ham And Glass
My Grandfather wore his skin like iron for the span of his life. Then, all of a sudden, he started to cry from time to time when we'd come around. I could never understand it until my own went off to college. With the old guy, I think that it was a combination of being worn out by life's battles and...
