1. One thing missing.

It should include in the timeline the dates that rethugs cut requested funding for the State Department, including security for our embassies and consulates.

Otherwise, an awesome graphic.

2. Good point. Plus the embassy is in Tripoli, not Benghazi. But, otherwise...

...as you said.

Thanks for the rec.

3. I'm not the only one can't keep that straight.

Embassy versus consulate -- how many people even realize there's a difference? I sure didn't until the uproar over this event.

Hopefully you'll get more recs when the day shift gets back!

6. To be honest, I didn't until I lived abroad

I guess it's mostly only when you're involved personally out of necessity that you'd find out.

BTW how did you change the font color?

10. Font changes are easy.

You just put the information you want in brackets [] to replace the usual HTML code indicators <>.

For example, I have a shortcut I use to insert <font color="navy" face="Verdana"> at the beginning of any post I make (replacing the angular brackets with square ones).

The name of the color doesn't always match the result, so you have to experiment a bit. I was trying to get forest green a while back (lighter shades are too hard to read), but that didn't work out so well, so I went back to navy blue.

4. Apparently, some of us followed things more closely than some of our GOP legislators

Apart from those GOP legislators who actually know better--but are willing to lie shamelessly about it.

Nice to see you, Turbo. Regards to the family!

7. I can't put into words how disgusted I am by these scumbags' blatant politicizing of their deaths

I just hope there's some massive public humiliation coming their way, and soon.

Nice to see you too, man

All hell's breaking loose here now she can run around and properly climb!

She's super cute, absolutely hilarious and has me wrapped around her little finger.

I'm starting to get grief from Mrs. T about how much time I'm on here now the election's over, so if I'm not around you'll know why...

9. Of course

You're right, and your comment prompted me to review the title and adjust it accordingly.
