Liberals have spent decades trying to figure out how to deal with a political landscape and a vapid media that abhors nuance and context, and searched for candidates who can speak without such complexity.

Okay, moving and working has been harder on me than anticipated. Back in the swing of things very soon.

Hopefully with cheaper Internet, too. I can't find a copy of this ad anywhere, but thanks to the good people at EATEL for notifying those cable consumers in Lafayette that Cox has to match the low rates they're advertising in Gonzales to customers in other markets.

It looks like a good bet my cable bill will go from $118/month to $75 monthly, and I'll be adding a phone line.

Oops, nevermind, I should have known the folks at Lafayette's Pro Fiber Blog would produce a picture of this ad. John notes that people in the "First Build Area" may want to hold off. That's not me, so I'm running with this.
