Well said and one of the few times I have agreed with an Editorial in the Journal!

Well done, good media drone. Report the distraction and let the story go by the wayside. The people at the NSA who were quaking in their collective boots just two short weeks ago are now spilling champagne on those boots while celebrating the dropping of the story by the meathead media.

Good boy, Mr. Editor! You will get your just rewards in progressive heaven.

Now, let us all forget about ever knowing the truth about anything ever again and get back to work. That champagne doesn't come cheap you know.

"Birds of a feather flock together” good point, the real question is how long has Edward Snowden been a member of his flock? Will we ever know? My guess Ed is still in Russia and will stay there for a very long time, because if he comes back to the USA he will spill the big bag of beans.

I heard Sven and Snowden are facebook friends...

Funny how the NSA has changed their data collection practices since the leaks yet Snowden isn't considered a whistleblower. If Washington had half a brain they would of considered this guy a whistleblower when he was still in Hawaii and brought him back to Washington rather than paint him a traitor and have him flee to both China and now Russia.

The media continues to do it's job doing this adminstration's bidding. Even the Journal is jumping on the bandwagon this time...

JR: We just had lunch in Hyde Park--a wonderful main course of red herring.

You know it well, it's the same dish I feed you often when you become obstreperous.

It is my believe that you've only been to Hyde Park in your mind just like so many of your other escapades. You just keep tilting those windmills though 'lil buddy. I do pity your care workers. Their work must be really be cut out for them.

You go get some rest now. It's going to take all of your strength if you're going to fix both Detroit and Chicago.

Leave the discussion to us grownups.

I was drinking gin martinis at The Palette Bar in Riccardo's when you were a pipsqueak in britches.

And, you haven't changed.

That explains why you continue to view the world through a cocktail straw. So, do you have any additional unenlightening drivel you wish to share with the rest of us ?

The only thing you've managed to demonstrate is you've mastered the use of a thesarus and Google. Perhaps you could find another time zone to attempt to impress anonymous strangers on a news forum. I know Sven, The Journal is the perfectly sized pond for a fish of your size; it was just wishful thinking on my part.

This will probably make you even crankier, but if you're going to try and play the role of the all-knowing urbanite you should at least learn how to spell "thesarus".

I'm sure you'll get the hang of it...eventually.
