LOCAL AND REGIONAL
* Home team takes the L. It’s not as if our team needs to cause problems in Soulard because the other team isn’t.
* Tavon and Travon. No comment from Trayvon, Traye’von, Trayveon or Trayon.
* Lamont Sanford is one of the two suspects in a December MissingLink mini mahogany mob. Let’s see how long it takes before someone gets the gag and also notes an irony.
* Good luck enforcing this, because racial profiling and BLM. Remember, Normandy is where GENTILIVUS GIANTIVUS officially resided at the end of his life; he was in southeast Ferguson because his grandmother lives in the Canfield Greens.
* Suspects listed as Caucasian, and that is literally true, but judging from one of the named neighbors, I’m betting on Bosnian.
* They wanted to go to Arkansas. Knowing how old they are and where they were going, they were probably going there to elope.
* Rejected Missouri personalized license plates. No BOOGER, which is too bad for Ted Cruz if he ever moves to Missouri.
* At first, I thought the idea of SSM/SLU wanting to tear down Desloge was a non-starter. However, the problem with it is that it is a very old fifteen story high brick and masonry structure, which would fall apart like a cheap deck of cards in a serious enough earthquake. Of course, you’ll notice that the DesLoge great-grandson is floating a social justicey proposal. The problem with that is that while the Desloge Tower isn’t gynormously yuge, it’s also not that small, and you don’t need that much space for a museum dedicated to blacks in medicine.
* So much for interstate commerce. The BLM people still haven’t figured out that this kind of thing, New York City’s obsession with collecting cigarette tax revenue, is partially what killed Eric Garner. The main reason they haven’t figured it out is that the Democrat Party doesn’t want to help them figure it out, because the anti-tobacco nuts and the trial lawyers that sheared the tobacco industry are in the same party.
* I’ve had the nagging feeling that at some point in the future, the local SJWs would make a move against Lindbergh Boulevard, wanting it to be renamed because Charles Lindbergh’s none too politically correct activities in the 1930s. Turns out that such an attempt was already made at the time Lindbergh was behaving un-PC.
* Half of official American history taught in public schools these days is about slavery, yet we get so offended when someone reenacts it?
* I don’t worry that much about drones, but I very much draw the line at their armed domestic official use.
* MSNBC has a diversity problem? That’s news to me. They certainly have no problem advocating it.
* In more coalition-of-the-fringes-falling-apart news. We’ve all been saying that in the absence of cishet goy white men to hate, the Democrat-left coalition falls apart, and the Santa Clara County, California jail is certainly a place with a paucity of cishet goy white men.
* Most people would find this news surprising, but I didn’t. Remember I wrote here months ago that SKD Knickerbocker, one of the biggest PR firms that services Democrat-left politics, took down from its website that it was handling the war room for Planned Parenthood in the wake of their chop shop scandal, and I took that to mean that there must be polling or focus group results that show that the scandal makes even pro-abort leftists sick.
* Yeahbut, every aspiring rapper whose legal first name has “-avious” in it has a hit track entitled “Hot Boy.”
* Now this is interesting. Could child support fairness be far behind?
* John Derbyshire, are you listening? It seems to me that the cut in this device’s wheel was the Golden Spiral.
* While we’re discussing math, I think this is in theory a good proposal, that most high school students only have to take prob/stat after having passed Algebra I and Geometry. The problem, especially considering that this proposal is made in part with the social justice narrative in mind, that prob/stat isn’t a gimme; it takes an Algebra II-quality math mind to pass prob/stat.
