At first glance I thought you got to select between having a day of battery life or a week.

My estimation of Somerville mayor Curtatone just went up:

“My unwavering support for our police officers does not and cannot preempt our commitment to addressing systemic racism in our nation,” Curtatone said in a statement to Boston.com. “I’ve made very clear to our officers that we should be thankful for—and reinforce—what we have here in Somerville: a safer community thanks to the highest quality policing by a force dedicated to community policing, de-escalation, proper use of force, and anti-bias awareness.”

Somerville police officers are asking that the city’s mayor remove a banner supporting the “Black Lives Matter” movement from City Hall and replace it with one proclaiming “All Lives Matter.” In a Tuesday letter addressed to Mayor Joseph Curtatone, the Somerville Police Employee’s Association, the bargaining unit for 90-95 patrol officers, called the city’s support of the …

This is a fascinating article about the guy who helped create the Trump mythos decades ago and now regrets it. (And who now, of course, receives threatening phone calls from Trump because if there's one thing Trump can't stand, it's "disloyal" media coverage...)
In “The Art of the Deal,” Tony Schwartz helped create the myth that Trump is a charming business genius. Now he calls him unfit to lead.

Yes.
 
I'm a very casual sportsball fan, but I think we all know that professional sports leagues are fundamentally self-centered, highly profit-focused, exploitative of both their players and their fans, and generally horribly callow in the face of any sort of controversy.

Given all of that, I think it's important to enthusiastically applaud the NBA for this decision. It's a very strong statement about what we as a culture are choosing to acknowledge as being fundamental human rights. This was not an easy call, and I'm extremely happy that in the end they made the right one.

I honestly don't get why people are so bent out of shape, in both directions, about pokemon (nee ingress 2.0).

A "Women Vote Trump" event at the RNC reportedly drew 17 people: "Q&A now happening, but crowd so small the panel are asking themselves most of the questions"

OK, closing comments because there's plenty of other places to have political debates on the internet, and I don't know any of y'all so I don't even particularly care about this one.
