So is there actual hope of the Senate flipping to Dems? When is the next election?

They need 3 if they win the presidency, 4 if they don't. 23 Republican seats are up, only 13 Democratic seats. November 2020.

The Democrats would basically need to run the table.  If you imagine an environment where the overall national mood is Democrats by about 7 points (slightly under 2018), it could happen.  Some context:

Collins, Gardner, Tillis and McSally are pretty vulnerable. If a democrat wins the presidency, going three out of four among them doesn't seem that unlikely.

That was good to see the progression from draft/drawings to finish. Looks like a lot of work to complete the process?  :)

The funny thing is that the hardest part is actually the scribble at the beginning. It doesn't look like anything much, but without getting the ideas and proportions right, the rest of it doesn't work. So often I scribble again and again, trying to get something that looks good to me.

Working the scribble up into an actual drawing is easier, but still hard, and then completing the inking and painting the easiest of all - it's the relaxing part.
Yep, I believe it. You have to get the drawing right, the foundation for the piece, in order for the "easy" part to be filled in and colored correctly to what you want it to be.  :)

Imho, if you liked the HD, you should buy the DE, it is much better, and it is a true remake of the game. :)

Im in the same boat as SYT and I don't understand what the big deal is about the definitive upgrade and how the HD edition was "botched"

So, the President says people have to flush 10, 15 times till their poop goes down, so he has to deregulate water suppliers?

Ed would have said "yes".   :(

Do instances where a suspect makes a get-away become huge nationwide stories?

If they execute their hostages, sure.

Video shows the officers using civilian cars, with the drivers inside, as cover. Is that standard procedure? :unsure:

What is the point of a question like that?

.....

And if the cops HAD let them simply get away, and they shot that UPS driver and left his body by the side of the road, the same couch warriors bitching about over aggressive cops hiding behind cars in a shoot out would say they were cowards for letting someone with a hostage simply escape, I am sure.

This needs more CAPS, one word isn't enough for the full effect.

Except for the last scene where another bounty hunter finds the dead Fennec Shand this didn't propel the main narrative forward IMHO. But it has me curious who the mystery person is. Considering the walking sound has a similar cowboy spurs ring to it as the Mandalorian's, it might be another Mando, but hard to tell. If I could wish for a cameo it would be Cad Bane from Clone Wars who would fit the western tropes perfectly.


Star Wars reddit seems to think it's Boba Fett.
