I am ambivalent about the complaints when a white person is punished moderately for something Black people are punished cruelly for. The problem isn’t the white person’s punishment. Here’s John Fugelsang on the latest:
Felicity Huffman got more prison time for lying her kid into college than anybody got for lying other peoples’ kids into Iraq

Let us not forget that Trump was elected by people who think that a printed map with a crude Sharpie addition demonstrating the point at issue is an Official Scientific Document if the President says so.

As they say, the Jets folded like a Trump casino.

Is it worse if Trump’s Seekrit Meeting story is true or false?

At least President Trump hasn’t tried to eat steak with light bulbs in it through a straw. Yet.

Putting up a graven image of the 10 Commandments is self-refuting.

Star Wars brought about the replacement of sf (which you read) by sci-fi (which you watch). One of its many pernicious effects was that one no longer had to be literate to be a geek.

May Zuck have to click on something desperately important to him and the screen suddenly moves and he winds up at a Hate Facebook site.

I have received a summons for the Jury Draft. I was going to explain that my hearing deficiencies would make me an ambulatory obstruction of justice, but I see that one sufficient excuse is Over 70 and DONTWANNA.

It is hard to comment on the Middle East without sounding like Buchanan Fodder or a Netan Yahoo, but I’m glad the scary-named group won this court case, even though it means agreeing with The American Conservative.

Food crimes [BuzzFeed] This discussion started with the alleged crime of putting pineapple on pizza, which I have done and have no shame about. To me, putting cruciferous vegetables on pizza is a food crime. Pizza was meant to be junk food.

Thanx to Metafilter

Women's breasts are not communication devices. [Katherine May/Twitter]

ETA: Synchronicity: A Facebook post reminds me of this quote from D.H. Lawrence (whom I have always thought of as bringing smut into disrepute)
She turned and saw a great white moon looking at her over the hill. And her breast opened to it, she was cleaved like a transparent jewel to its light. She stood filled with the full moon, offering herself. Her two breasts opened to make way for it, her body opened wide like a quivering anemone, a soft, dilated invitation touched by the moon
