// Black Lives Matter is not a hate group. But the perception that it is racist illustrates the problem. Our society as a whole still does not accept that racial injustice remains pervasive. And, unfortunately, the fact that white people tend to see race as a zero-sum game may actually impede progress. //

I would change "may actually impede progress" to "definitely impedes progress".

+Seth Holmes I wish I had something magic to tell you about to handle that. I'm not sure it's something you have to handle. He's not alone: my stepson, who is black, feels similarly.

On the Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park yesterday, with +Leslie Killgore, we saw a bear cub amble across the road and pause on the shoulder long enough for us to get several good photos as he chowed down on a maple sapling.

"The only effective riposte is Gandhian."

// Daesh wants us to be afraid, to hate, and to push Western Muslims into their arms. The only effective riposte is Gandhian. Show Muslims some love, and include them in political society. No, Muslims aren’t peculiar in the amount of violence they have generated in the past century. And no, the religion of Islam does not permit terrorism; the Qur’an decries each murder as a form of symbolic genocide. //

// So the answer to Nice is the opposite of what the politicians think. It isn’t to declare war on Daesh (Trump), or to do more warrantless surveillance (HR Clinton), or to get rid of the Rights of Man (Francois Hollande). On Bastille Day, commemorating the French Revolution that helped invent the very idea of human rights, we should defend it by defending them, not by emulating dictators and absolute monarchs. //

+Google Photos is simply amazing. I needed to locate a photo of a tattoo that another family member has, so that I could get the same thing (to honor my dear late brother). I searched for "tattoo" under Google Photos, and it immediately found all photos I had of tattoos. Remarkable AI.

Obama is sending three to four battalions to Poland to help shore up its border with Russia. I wonder how many people are aware of this, or care.

+Dwight A. Ernest I agree completely. It seems that we've done with war what we've done with climate change. Accepting it, without liking it, as the "new normal."

With the weather, it's always "those people suffering" - what a shame. Then when torrential rains, tornadoes or hurricane wipe one's own home away it's: "How did this happen? We have to do something about this!"

When our neighbor loses his job, it's a recession. But when we lose our job, suddenly it's a depression.

Sorry, Dwight, sometimes I rant out of sheer frustration.

For the convenience of my German readers here is a translation of the Republican National Convention's schedule into German.

Excellent piece by a staffer at Mitch Kapor's VC group (for you folks with interest in the SL or general digerati interest stuff, I love the image painted of his company).

Excellent, energetic, competent country variety show. Marred by clientele who wore racist attire. All-white cast with no POC among the audience, either. And surprised by the cultural appropriation of Gladys Knight's "R.E.S.P.E.C.T.".

Very good Thai food, and pretty good Sushi if you have adequate time to wait for it. If you have people in your party who like both Thai and/or Sushi, this is a great place to satisfy them both. Most of their evening business seems to be take-out, which is a good sign, though they do have sit-down table service also. Good ice cream available (seasonally) across the street.

Utterly remarkable. Opulent. Grand. Conspicuously consumptive. A tribute to American Capitalism. On a par with the Hearst Castle. Not to be missed, if you can afford the steep entrance fee (how can the lower classes marvel at this with such high prices?).
