On one hand this may seem a pedantic nitpick, but there's a real point in here.

People keep referring to the rebel flag as the "Confederate flag." But it wasn't. That emblem was part of some of the Confederate flags.

The rebel flag flew over Robert E Lee's army. And later the KKK made the flag part of their imagery and symbolism.

There really is very little historical justification for that flag to fly anywhere. And that it was the rebel flag that was chosen speaks volumes.

A little history on what's been going on at Reddit.

I think this run down is fairly accurate at the moment. Multiple replies start to give you a fuller idea of the background.

Well, Alexis Ohanian"s response has gone from 'popcorn tastes good' to 'we hear you, we'll work with you" overnight, so it will be interesting to see how it progresses from here.

This made me smile.

It's an important win. Not the last one. Not an endpoint. But it's the kernel of an awareness.

And that fills me with a pride and gratitude to see this flag viewed in a more historically accurate way.

I don't have anything profound or poignant to say here.

I just want to congratulate the LGBT community for a hard fought and entirely overdue victory today.

And I'll just be over here basking in a vicarious happiness. So relieved. So happy.

Congratulations!

I think this needs to be said.

Maybe it's the most rhetorically expedient way to say it. But that doesn't diminish the truth of it. A black shooter wouldn't have received nearly the same treatment, imo. Before and after arrest.

And you can't pretend the juxtaposition is lost on people.

This is our post racial America? We can do better. We must do better.

To go further: I think this is a white, non-"white" thing. Not simply a white-black one. It's the actions of a majority in power, working from some odd notion of what makes a person an "authentic" American. And the authentic get respect. The inauthentic, even sometimes white, do not.

Good luck scoring above 80 when you already lose 5 to 10 points based on skin color.

Why so much was done to protect this guy's dignity is lost on me. I'm not saying be an ass, but I am saying this looks goofy.

While I don't condone witch hunts, it's not difficult to see how her behavior could affect the work place and her employer.

It's good to see that something is happening here after it seemed the police gave her a pass as they focused on the kids.

I need help finding two services:

Metal drill + cut the head off a bolt

We live in an apartment so I don't really have many tools. We bought a floor lamp but the counter weight isn't set correctly.

I have all the supplies except for the tools. Is there a place nearby where this can be done? I looked at the home depot stuff, but all they have are rentals, not a service like this.

Thanks for the recommendation and invite! I know I'd enjoy having a different creative outlet, but I'm not sure I'd be able to make it worth the price tag. I know, from experience, I'd enjoy the people. So that helps.

When I leave work, I'm pretty much headed home and after a few hours with my squeeze, I'm out like a light.

I like the idea of checking everything out, tho. I may do that soon. After all I've heard about it, I'm certainly curious.

Jon Stewart saying it better than I ever could.

We can do better. We must.
 
Having just watched last night's +The Daily Show​, mad props to Jon Stewart for doing what he did. I'm going to miss him so much. 
Jon addresses a racially motivated shooting at the historic Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, S.C., which took the lives of nine parishioners.

This is a game changer. At this point the demand should drive a lot of other changes - like far more ubiquitous chargers.

The future is here.
 
"Unless the rest of the automotive industry does a dramatic bit of catching up, Tesla is set to sell absurd quantities of Model 3s."

Indeed.
Tesla has shared more information about its upcoming Model III sedan, including its claimed range of 250 miles or more on a charge.

They've generally gotten my order right and the food has always been good - for fast food. But the service has been... reluctant. They aren't usually all that busy, but when you need to order, you get the sense that helping you is fairly low on their list - and it will show in their voices. Or unwillingness to hang up the phone to take the order. I'm kind of surprised it's still open, really. I do like the food, that's why I come back periodically. I'd visit more often if I wasn't treated like an annoyance. (I'm not special ordering or doing anything odd. I order the straight menu, so... I'm low maintenance and do nothing to trigger the odd response.)

Might have been an "off" day but the customer service I just received will keep me away for a while. All I did was a quick order, I didn't dawdle, she war really inconvenienced by me. Clear throughout.

While it's a wing place, the burgers are really very good - and affordable. The wings are great and the entirely family EASILY agrees on Wingtown - and that's rare. My biggest wish is that there was delivery - we'd order even more often, I'm sure. Our favorite wings are spicy and teriyaki.
