  • I’m a few days late with the news, but Justin Raimondo has died — and that’s one heck of an obituary for one heck of an activist life.
  • Today’s most unsurprising news: NYPD joins the ranks of police outfits planting evidence to meet arrest quotas.
  • Humboldt County, California, issues peremptory fines to people who might be growing pot — even if they’re actually growing peaches or tomatoes.
  • “The Boomers Ruined Everything.” The title is inflammatory. The article has a point — and a damned good one — but most of the problems it cites preceded us boomers. Our generation only made matters worse.
  • Another cop quietly gets away with murder — of a six-year-old child, yet.
  • Conservative = Nazi. And this is the “thinking” that the Google fascists plan to build their algorithms on.
  • Happy Independence Day. But you can’t wear Betsy Ross flag sneakers cause Colin Kaepernick sez they’re offensive — and Nike rushed to pull them from the market. (Funny, though. I remember when conservatives considered all flag apparel to be offensive.)
  • Privacy browsers. Mostly for mobile. But it’s good news that DuckDuckGo now has a browser of its own.
  • The nationwide transportation of southern rescue dogs that began after Hurricane Katrina has been a mixed blessing. It’s brought deadly heartworm to areas that formerly didn’t have it. Still … it’s also brought heartwarming, and some very good dogs. (H/T SO)
  • Dogs also make the best subject for panoramic photo fails.

    I came across that Humboldt story a few days ago but haven’t seen a word about it in any of the local media here.

    Folks keep wondering if there’s going to be another civil war. I think the war on drugs already is.

    If you thought the war on drugs was virulent and viscious before, just wait to see what it morphs into presently to protect the States pelf from tax revenue now that the business is becoming legal and regulated.

    Our “Tess” is a Tennessee Walker Coon Hound. She found her way from the mid-south to the upper Mid West in the Humane Society’s “Bark Bus”. We don’t know much about her past except that she was 4 years old when she arrived here, had been bred at least once, and had had a bad case of heart worm. A foster family took her in until she was well enough to be adopted. I commented to my wife that I couldn’t understand why there were so many great dogs coming out of the south. Tess is incredibly sweet and sociable. Who could give up such a great 4 legged friend.
    But after reading the article, I think I get it. Tess had served her purpose as a breeder and, since she is terribly gun shy, did not have a future as a hunting dog. She was discarded. Their loss, our gain.
