I am not going to touch this Viewpoints question with a 10-foot pole, except to quote from the Pilot of Firefly, one of my favorite TV shows of all time:
Simon: So does it happen a lot? Government commandeering your ship, telling you where to go?
Mal: That's what governments are for… get in a man's way.
This nerdy moment of shiny! is brought to you by the Letter A (which stands for “Anna is Awesome, and We Love Her”), and Joss Whedon.
Anna Marie Martin has been a Spokanite since December 2006, when she moved here just in time to experience some of the worst snowstorms in recent history. She dislikes snow (hate is a really strong word). She grew up in Nebraska, and therefore has no need to be exposed to neither more snow nor more football. Yet, each of these happen every fall and winter, she says.
