    Back on after several years. Surprised how slow it is.

    When I was on the forum a lot there were ads but they were not as obtrusive as they seem to be now. I do remember problems with Spam post back then but they were usually removed pretty quickly. Without active moderation I could see how it spiraled out of control very quickly. Even though it...

    Another detail just occurred to me regarding I-594

    An election reminder (Satterberg)

    Ballots have been sent out and I thought I would take the opportunity to remind everyone that prosecuting attorney Dan Satterberg is up for re-election. Dan Satterberg is the man who refused to prosecute the murderer Ian Burk for his cold-blooded killing of Mr. John T. Williams. Satterberg...
