As a result of the overwhelming preference of the regular participants of my comments area -- who are apparently resistent to change, and to the possibility that new ideas might be an improvement -- I decided to reverse myself. I've restored the comments area to its earlier 'forward chronological' display.

Personally, I think that reverse-chron was a better way to display this.

Since the most recent post is usually the most interesting one, and since you guys are in the habit of creating long threads here (which I like, by the way), I found that having the newest comment at the bottom of a potentially long scroll to be annoying.

But I've always thought that this comments area is more yours than mine, so I changed it back.

Pretty damn inconsiderate of you to cave so quickly.

So now what do i do with all the protest signs I made up? And what about the rally scheduled for monday noon in Sproul Plaza.

Okay, I know, I know, you already did! Hooray! Oh, wait. I still have to be fighting mad... I am rallying with Sherman!

Damn the Man! Die Yuppie Scum! No War! Disco's Dead! No Long Hairs! Give Peace a Chance! Scabs go Home! You Light up my Life! Act Globally, Think Locally! Anarchy Rules! Meat is Dead! Unionize! Save the Whales! Fur is Dead! Don't let the sun shine down on me! Semper Fi! Legalize Marijuana! Buy American! Live and Let Live! Flower Power! Skateboarding is not a crime! Think Pink! Kill your TV!... Okay, I'm drawing the line at that one.

Now, what was this all about? Oh right, comments in the wrong order. Good move to change it back, Jack! (...hey, Paul Simon memory there!)

The reverse order was just wrong! Unless you wanted to read everything backwards, you had to scroll down to read a comment, then you had to scroll back up throught that comment and the next comment to start at the top of that comment and then back down to read it... augh, my head is spinning!

I got so confused reading the comments yesterday that I just had to spend the entire day standing on my head to balance everything out. It made for a very unproductive day.

Well, I'm glad everything's back to normal now and all is right with the world.

Now, on to my next mission... SHERMAN FOR PRESIDENT! YeeeaaHAA!

Ask not what your Sherman can do for you.
Ask what you can do for your Sherman.

I cannot tell a lie, well..actually that was just a lie because I've told lots of lies before.

I am not a cook.

I did not have sexual relations with that woman.

Walk softly and carry a big bong.

Thus be it ever to Shermans.

And I was feeling lazy cause I did not want to scroll down and then scroll up to read thing in order.

Sherman for President, Why not !
a chicken in every pot, or was it pot for every chicken...either way he will get my vote....

It's "Do pot or you're a chicken."

Peer pressure. It got Jack to change back. And it will make this country the fine pothead nation it should be.
