Just cancel your account at the local Comcast store where you drop off your cable box. That's what I've done every time. Brought in the box/modem, said I want to cancel my account, the guy says "ok" and it's done with a refund check sent out a week later. No mess, no hassle, no hard sell to keep or transfer. » 9/29/14 1:58pm Monday 1:58pm

That's because regular espresso is garbage that people only pretend to like because it comes from Italy. Double americano in an 8oz cup is good stuff. Not as good as a good cup of regular drip though which is, of course, the best kind of coffee. » 9/26/14 3:33pm Friday 3:33pm

Completely unthinkable? Come on. GM was just a year away from putting out the Impact concept for the EV1 so it was pretty well known that people were working on the electric car. Only six years later the EV1 was out. If you had told people that 20 years after that, electrics would improve to the point where they… » 9/25/14 11:49am 9/25/14 11:49am

That's not true. Plan XVII didn't discount a German thrust through Belgium - it RELIED on it. The idea was that while the Germans were maneuvering through Belgium, their lines would be stretched and the French could mass their main thrust through Alsace-Lorraine and punch across the Rhine before Germany could… » 9/24/14 9:42am 9/24/14 9:42am

That's my only quibble. If they were out of the running for the division crown, I'd say go ahead and celebrate clinching the wild card. But they're still in the hunt! Wait until you see if you can grab that division title before celebrating. » 9/24/14 9:30am 9/24/14 9:30am

There's nothing pristine about Lanai. It was a giant ranch, then a sugar cane plantation, and then the entire island was converted to a pineapple plantation until the mid-80s when they started building golf courses, etc. There's still a lot of ranches and farms. » 9/23/14 9:56am 9/23/14 9:56am

Citizens United wasn't about making unlimited political contributions. It was about whether Congress had the right to restrict independent electioneering activity by corporations (as well as labor unions and other non-profits). Restrictions on direct contributions were left in place by the ruling. » 9/10/14 12:01pm 9/10/14 12:01pm

The "good guys" he references are the people who were working to end slavery. So...no, not an apology for slavery or a call for more objectivity on slavery the institution but a more detailed history including the efforts to end it. Of course, you know that but are just being deliberately obtuse in an attempt to… » 9/05/14 1:23pm 9/05/14 1:23pm

For sure. If they've got room, they'll let you on every time. The first thing I do after getting off the plane if I've got a longish connection is double check the departure board to see if there's another flight leaving earlier. » 9/04/14 2:27pm 9/04/14 2:27pm
