      1. oh man i just noticed he never came.
        those dookies. ….
        i hope he got into a car accident or something as serious to prevent him from making his way here to grace us with his presence

      2. I've noticed there has been precious little discussion of ethics at this panel.

        I guess that's what they get for inviting someone who says "I like abortions and want more of them" to an ethics panel.
