Teen Men

I try to avoid dunking on teens, even though of course black kids are adults and white kids are children, but really what a test for everyone's biases.

Us And Them

I fail, also, too, at many things I criticize, but I've been working on this one. Probably still failing! But there's an obvious flaw in "objective journalism" when they write about "other people." One reason the trips to Ohio diners to talk to Trump Supporters is so annoying is they all read like an anthropological field trip. I don't think Trump supporters should get obsessive coverage, but I also don't think they should be covered like zoo specimens. And if elite people can't even cover affluent white people as humans, they probably aren't covering non-white people especially well. This "tell" in news coverage is so frequently blaring and if you can't see this obvious case for diversity in newsrooms...

Marginal Tax Rates, How Do They Work?

It's sorta funny that conservatives are pretending to not understand because for years they've pitched tax cuts for rich people by trying to convince people that the reason that doing taxes is a pain in the ass is because of progressive taxation. You know, the flat tax will make it easy! Because the hard thing about doing your taxes is that turbotax can't calculate what you owe easily once you put in all the numbers.

The man is bad but incompetent, as are all the people he hires.

Nothing To See Here

Move along.

Greenland’s enormous ice sheet is melting at such an accelerated rate that it may have reached a “tipping point,” and could become a major factor in sea-level rise around the world within two decades, scientists said in a study published on Monday.

Good Luck, Self-Driving Cars!

Afternoon Thread

My president is not tweeting anything stupid today in honor of MLK.


Oldsters like me remember how the mainstream media treated Jesse Jackson, who actually won a lot of delegates. Progress.

Morning Thread

Gee, everyone is always talking about the weather, but nobody seems to want to do anything about it.

Can you get the BBC?

I accidentally caught "The Everly Brothers: Harmonies from Heaven" on my TV, which brought tears to my eyes. If you can get Auntie Beeb, I recommend it.


I spent a couple of weeks injecting fluids and force feeding Wiley. For a few days he perked up and I thought I had rebooted him. Sadly, no.

Saturday, Saturday

It is finally Saturday! I think. I got nothin'.

I thought it was Saturday.

Lock Her Up

Pelosi Is Great At Her Job And Also The Dem Leadership Is Too Old

These actually aren't contradictory opinions or even calls for Pelosi to step aside. Failure to bring young people into leadership positions is a problem throughout society today. Except maybe tech where they are all rich and like 19 years old.
