dary show. I had grown disappointed with this season, and felt that they had decided to do one final season without enough ideas to support an entire season. In the opening scene of the episode, as Ted is sitting at Barney and Robin’s wedding reception, he looks across the room and sees his future wife.

How I Met Your Mother, why Ted was crying, and how the show will end


Spoiler alerts, if you’re not up to date on this show!

Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney has come under fire at the Democratic National Convention for investing abroad. Yesterday, Ted Strickland, the former governor of my home state of Ohio used the Bible in his criticism of Romney.

Strickland said:

Mitt Romney has so little economic patriotism that even his money needs a passport. It summers on the beaches of the Cayman Islands and winters on the slopes of the Swiss Alps. In Matthew, chapter 6, verse 21, the scriptures teach us that where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. My friends, any man who aspires to be our president should keep both his treasure and his heart in the United States of America. … Barack Obama is betting on the American worker. Mitt Romney is betting on a Bermuda shell corporation. Barack Obama saved the American auto industry. Mitt Romney saved on his taxes. Barack Obama is an economic patriot. Mitt Romney is an outsourcing pioneer.
