Funny thing is, IIRC, the first political scientist to make the point
about how free enterprise lifted huge swathes of humanity out of
millenia of life at cave-level was .... Karl Marx, in 1848:
 
"The bourgeoisie, during its rule of scarce one hundred years, has
created more massive and more colossal productive forces than have all
preceding generations together. Subjection of Nature's forces to man,
machinery, application of chemistry to industry and agriculture,
steam-navigation, railways, electric telegraphs, clearing of whole
continents for cultivation, canalisation of rivers, whole populations
conjured out of the ground – what earlier century had even a
presentiment that such productive forces slumbered in the lap of social
labour?"
 
- Communist Manifesto

You agreeing with me? Wow.
 
If you now were also to admit that Steffi was NOT "ungainly hopping around" or so.
Then we could be friends.

It's been fun to watch the anti-Fed crew tie themselves up in knots, post-Wimbledon. The cognitive dissonance must be rough!

I was thinking the other day about all the posts, all the quite inventive parsing and detailing (informal analytics + rhetorical ideas) tossed around here over, say the last, 15 years or so... Which is to say the ramblings and ravings throughout the Federer-Nadal era. I thought of the rise of Nole and Murray, the fall off of Roddick (the great challenger who never was), the surface war debates, Dave into Superdave, the lost posters, Young GUNS, pronostications on WHO will rise up after Nole, tennis and media, GOAT definations and obcessiveness, KNIFE, Seles-Graf and then Serena-Graf (which is another formulation of GOAT-itus), the lost epic threads on technique differences and technical adaptations in tennis post-Sampras/Agassi, roll-calls, the FLAME&BLAME wars consumming RST c.2007-2011-ish... all of it...

Patrick, your post for some odd reason brought a book to mind, one I haven't
read for years, that might be worth a look:
 
https://www.amazon.com/Grand-Gesture-Turner-Mariner-Americas/dp/0316898104
 
In fact, I think I'm going to chase down another copy. YMMV of course.

Feds said he didn't want to face Rafa on clay, in Paris, and, in that sense, he was smart. Rafa would have loved ripping him a new one, so to speak.

Fed's decision making, on court and off, the past 12 months has been
impeccable.

Is he thought to be gay? I don't think I have ever heard that about him, rumoured about him, before. Not that it would have anything to do with his tennis.

Letrozole is easy to detect. Which is no secret.
Why then would Errani deliberately take that drug?
 
I know, that is a complicated line of thought. What did you say is your profession? Lawyer??

It felt like a voiceover commentary. You are right of course. :)

Looks to me like the Great Man has put on a few pounds after #8/19.
 
More power to him.

Well there is no reason for the Conservative government to call another
election any time soon - especially after what happened in June.

Not really, the DUP will support the government in any 'critical' votes,
but they probably would have without the agreement, and most of the
legislation over the course of this parliament is related to Brexit,
and Labour are basically in favour of that.
 
Of course politics in 2017 is liable to produce surprises :-)

Republicans and democrats are always held to different standards. How else does the Bush white house using RNC email for official business and deleting them, Pence using private email as IN gov, Romney erasing gov't emails in MA at the end of his term, Powell using AOL email as secretary of state all have no consequence but Hillary's private server is some big deal?

You don't see the difference between what Hillary did and your other examples?
Really?
 
Wow, just wow ...
