Well, just so you all know, I really do like Star Wars: Galaxies. I'll probably never play it again, but I like it. I don't know why I like it; by all means, there are certainly many reasons why I shouldn't, but I do. Making an MMORPG is a thankless job, and I think too many people find it easier to say something is shit than to say something more acurate, like, "I Don't like it."

Presidential debates went on last night. Kerry managed to hold a few possitions the entirety of the debate even though he supported them with lies and even though they were possitions as flimsy as, " I believe that there is a right way and a wrong way, and I believe the president's way is the wrong way!" Never mind that he doesn't explain why it's wrong or even to bother to explain what the right way would be. Details details. Future presidents don't need to be bothered with details.

Bush on the other hand looked like he didn't want to be there, he clearly was made speachless by the absurdity of many of Kerry's statements. I think that Bush clearly could have put a stronger foot in and made a stronger showing of the errors that Kerry made, he definitely made a showing at being the better man in the debate, which showed in the shift in opinion polls post debate, but he left enough of the outright lies, falacies and challenges Kerry made unanswered that it can't be said that he won the debate, even if he made it absolutely clear that he was the better man for president by letting Kerry's own vices stand for themselves. I think Bush could have changed some minds last night. He did change a few. But he could have changed more. I think he'll win anyway, and I hope he does. I hope he makes a stronger show in the next few debates, but he doesn't need to.
