  • If you don’t approve of Columbus Day, you can celebrate slavery, torture, and muder on Indigenous People’s Day.
  • Harvey Weinstein and Rep. Tim Murphy. Studies in hypocrisy. (It’s no coincidence that both are apparently real bastards, too, who specialize in intimidating underlings.)
  • The fight for cannabis legalization goes on in South Africa, driven by one brave, abused couple.
  • Perhaps the most remarkable thing about this story isn’t the survivalist giving all his goods for hurricane relief, but the fact that the WaPo isn’t sneering at him.
  • For some, having cancer treatment marketed with happy talk is insulting and depressing.
  • A liberal anti-gunner writes a book about how a gun dealer friend of his was destroyed by Obama/ATF anti-gun scapegoating.
  • Another incident of SJWs eating their own.
  • Exactly how Equifax makes it super-easy for anybody to access your salary history.
  • Selling health insurance across state lines. It’s a start — even if executive order is a creepy way to achieve it.
  • Edina is a prosperous suburb of Minneapolis. Edina schools have been outstanding. The Edina school district has recently gone whole hog for racial identity and social justice pecksniffery. Guess what happened to student performance.
  • It was hard to find any cheery news today. But here’s something: backyard inventor makes cool prosthetic limbs for kids. Free.

    In re. the Equifax site, the larger question is where are all the other information portals that none of us know about.

    It’s interesting how Weinstein is being treated, compared to how Bill Cosby was excommunicated.

    Church story:
    The Sunday service got to the Children’s Sermon. The urchins gathered down front and the assistant choir director, Matt, picks up the mic.
    Matt- I’ve been studying a word this week; “awareness.” Do you know what it means?
    Urchin 1- Knowing what’s happening around you.
    Matt- Right. Now, what do we use to know what’s going on around us?
    Urchin 2- Our eyes.
    Matt- Right. With our eyes we can see around us. What else?
    Urchin 3, loud enough that everybody in the congregation could hear- Coffee!
    Brought down the house, and derailed the rest of the lesson.

    A different lesson came up I-10 from San Antonio.

    The Northeast Independent School District board of trustees voted Monday night to change the name of Robert E. Lee High School. The board voted 5-2 in favor of replacing Robert E. Lee High School with the Legacy of Educational Excellence (L.E.E HS) beginning in the 2018-19 school year.

    That way they can cave to protestors, but save money by not having to change so many signs, uniforms, etc.
    Word is that the vast majority of students want to stay the Lee Volunteers. I can understand why. Who would want to be on the Legacy of Educational Excellence football team?
