Tuesdays with Moron: Chatological Humor Update

Jun 11, 2013

Every Tuesday, Gene publishes weekly updates to his chats.

- Gene's LAST monthly chat

- Submit your questions to Gene's NEXT monthly chat here. It is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, June 25 at noon. If you submitted a question for today's update, there is no need to resubmit. Thank you.

On one Tuesday each month, Gene is online to take your questions and abuse. He will chat about anything. Although this chat is sometimes updated between live shows, it is not and never will be a "blog," even though many persons keep making that mistake. One reason for the confusion is the Underpants Paradox: Blogs, like underpants, contain "threads," whereas this chat contains no "threads" but, like underpants, does sometimes get funky and inexcusable.

Greetings, update readers.

We are in the middle of a very complicated, very important matter weighing grave issues of national security against grave issues of the right to privacy. The facts are just beginning to spill out. Anyone who claims to know for sure what is right and wrong is either a fool or a paid pundit, like New Yorker's John Cassidy , who thinks Ed Snowden is a hero, and the New Yorker's Jeffrey Toobin, who thinks Ed Snowden is a scumbag who needs to go to jail for a long time.

We at Chatological Humor take no position at this time. But we have our suspicions. Our gut feelings. And that is what we would like to question you on today. Not on what is right or wrong, but on what you feel, at this early point, in your gut. A simple three-question poll.

Submit your questions to Gene's NEXT monthly chat here. It is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, June 25 at noon. If you submitted a question for today's update, there is no need to resubmit. Thank you.
