I’m not the only parent in the world who has this scene come to mind every time it’s bathtime for the kiddo, right? youtube.com/watch?v=mdEYkV…
Yet another example of why I treasure David Simon. davidsimon.com/trayvon/

Sorry, but there’s nothing good about calf tattoos. They all look like a massive bruise or the person has a disease. Ew. Just ew.
The lesson, as always, is if you’re going to fully embrace your vigilantism, make sure whomever you stalk, assault, and then kill is black.
Candy Crush level 147 can go F itself. Just sayin. Bless its heart.
It’s amazing how much damage a doomed rearguard action can do before the end. Here’s the Texas Special Session Blues: youtu.be/L6bT_9-pZso
I just realized this site has been active for more than 7 years now. Given life, work, and social changes in the intervening time the site has largely died on the vine. Sad for me and the approximately 0.0003 readers of the site.
However, things are what they are and I don’t really see an imminent return to long-form blogging. By anyone. Myself included. I spend my days thinking Deep Thoughts and making Important Decisions and being Restricted from Any Fun Interwebbing by Work Firewalls and that sort of thing. Then home = family time and to hell with actually writing any thoughts of substance. That’s my excuse. Sorta. Also, I’m a lazy bastard, writing is hard, and basically the Bush years blew my outrage meter and I don’t feel the compulsive need to source and quote everything any longer (read: the stench of law school has been washed away finally. Also, I’m a lazy bastard). But then I look at what I used to write and I haz a sad for the diminution of my skills, effort, and readability. Fuck twitter, man!
SO, while I imagine the intermittent twitter twattering will continue and appear here and I’ll try to do a better job of actually including long-form thoughts… no promises. Also, too: happy late birthday grumpasaurus.com.
Justin Carter is a current American version of Jean Valjean. What an absurd, tragic state of affairs. #FreeJustinCarter
Now that @andy_murray has ended the Wimbledon drought, we can refocus on the important things. Like the lack of flying cars in my driveway.
Shockingly, this is not – repeat NOT – a parody piece. live.wsj.com/video/opinion-… Where are the black helicopters when you need them?
How many books are in the G W Bush library anyway? If more than 0, is one of them My Pet Goat? #worstpresidentever
If Cheney were still president, the cruise missiles would already be on their way to Nigeria. #boston
