The Math

Of course neighbors are concerned about parking. I just wish they could look at the empty lot and use their powers of spatial reasoning to realize that...the only way to put parking on the lot is to turn it into a parking lot.

Most people who worry about parking don't have their own off street parking. That's why they worry about it.

But, hey, empty lot.

The Evidence Is Not In

The most maddening thing about "school reformers" is that they insist that they're all about the evidence, and paying their patrons lots of money for the evidence, but then it's all LA LA LA I CAN'T HEAR YOU WHAT EVIDENCE.

Ok the most maddening thing actually is that a bunch of grifters are destroying public education. I've noticed a lot of eventheliberals have just sort of shut up about the whole thing lately.

Are you guys still up?

Happy Halloween, y'all.

Thursday Night

Rock on.

Thursday Evening

Be excellent to each other.

Happy Hour Thread

It's Friday, right?

Outsider Insidery


Um, David?

The fact that people think you're an asshole and treat you accordingly is not actually more important than, say, the widespread discrimination against African-Americans in our criminal justice system.

...oh the horror....

Coming Across The Border

I do love that everyone accepts that as code for "coming from Mexico."

Hi Canada!

Oh, Orange County

Drought isn't going to empty your fake lake.
Tampering with the lake's water can be a touchy subject for some longtime association members, who chafed at the suggestion of reducing or changing the lake levels.

"We love coming down here where there aren't too many people," said Carlos Lopez, an association member whose 4-year-old daughter, Dayleen, splashed in the water. "She's a fish. I'd have to take her down to the beach, and that's a pain."

Thursday Is New Jobless Day

287K new lucky duckies.

Wakey, Wakey

Gee, you guys can't catch a break. Atrios tells you to go the fuck to sleep and I tell you to wake up.

Go the fuck to sleep.

How To Deal With A Serial Killer

Obviously we couldn't arrest, prosecute, and imprison a serial killer, especially if he promised not to kill again, so I guess we're out of options?
A mixture of new issues and lingering problems could violate earlier settlements that imposed reforms and fines on the banks but stopped short of criminal charges, according to lawyers briefed on the cases. Prosecutors are exploring whether to strengthen the earlier deals, the lawyers said, or scrap them altogether and force the banks to plead guilty to a crime.

That effort, unfolding separately from a number of well-known investigations into Wall Street, has ensnared several giant banks and consulting firms that until now were thought to be in the clear.

Maybe if we make them pinky-swear this time?

Wednesday Evening


The Most Useless People In America

The Cleveland Plain Dealer editorial board.

Such a mystery why newspapers are dying.

Sleep, Disrupted

One of those nights for various reasons, so I just woke up. Well, I woke up at 3, 4, 5, and 6, too. You get the idea.

Lunch Thread

I had a hotdog. Burp.
