Yeah, get me on the misplaced modifier. I guess, in light of the shit I have talked on others' grammar recently, I should have expected that.

Wow. Didn't think it would take this long.

CISPA is back!

Nah, happens pretty much every time. After SH, national gun regs were brought back. After crazy cop in CA, 10 statewide regs popped up again. (new material they left out the first time)
