A lot of times people say Bilimor í a , emphasizing the fourth syllable, when it's really the third that gets stressed. Sometimes they omit the last i altogether: Bilimora and sometimes the second one as well: Bilmora . Let's not even get started with spelling. When we had that car accident on the w...

Re: Inserting political opinions into questions

For the Trekkies/ers/fans: Is it appropriate to state that Gene Roddenberry's unused lyrics to the Star Trek opening title were "godawful"? This seems to be the general consensus among fans. On the other hand, I could (and have) make some snarky remarks about George Lucas. My "He opposes the coloriz...

Re: Inserting political opinions into questions

I agree; it can be annoying. Writers should just present the cold facts. It doesn't even have to be a question on politics: I know I'm guilty of skewing a few music and trash questions toward my own views. Well, that's part of what editing is for: deciding what's too gratuitous to keep in.

Re: Georgia Tech high school tournament 3/15/08

Well, I am not in charge of such things, but I am certain the possibility will be discussed next week. It was a lot of work writing all those question sets, especially with only five of us writing, and I know I would like to see them used after all that effort.
