  • Texas "was received as a commonwealth holding, maintaining and protecting the institution known as negro slavery-- the servitude of the African to the white race within her limits-- a relation that had existed from the first settlement of her wilderness by the white race, and which [Texas] people intended should exist in all future time"

  • Excluding London, how would you rank UK cities in terms of how good their public transport is?
  • RMTransit just did a video about how it's basically impossible to have good public transit without London-style city control.

    Anyone else seeing 'couldnt_get_comments'

    Since yesterday, clicking from the front page to any discussion gives a blank page with couldnt_get_comments error and a 'refresh' button that takes you back to the front page
