Well, that, and the fact that it's a little spicy for my taste.

Excellent article by Ta-Nehisi Coates; however, my response would be that two wrongs do not make a right. There is nothing that can justify the violence in Baltimore, and while Coates is not advocating violence, he is basically saying calls for the violence to end are somehow inappropriate, because calls to end police brutality were ignored. I can't agree with that.
When nonviolence begins halfway through the war with the aggressor calling time out, it exposes itself as a ruse.

Outrageous racism is the only possible explanation for this.
Most of the police force and several officials resigned after the small town of Parma, Missouri elected its first African American woman as mayor, reported KFVS. Tyrus Byrd, a former city clerk, was officially sworn in as mayor on Tuesday after be...

The question is, did they resign because she's African-American, a woman, or a Republican?

If you can't tell the difference between a taser and a gun, you have no business being involved in a police action.
Tulsa police released a video on Friday of a sheriff's deputy fatally shooting a suspect he says he meant to taser. Reserve Deputy Robert Bates, 73, who used to be a police officer, shouted "taser, taser," before firing his gun at Eric ...

Not the first time this has happened.   It happened in (local to me) Oakland in 2009.  Horrible.   Again, a black guy was the victim of a murdering cop.   We need a serious review of police procedures.  They are murdering and exploiting far too many vulnerable people.

This will make a few progressives happy, right +Tina Vigilante​ and +Christopher Maddy​?
Bernie Sanders' nascent presidential campaign announced Friday that it raised more than $1.5 million in its first 24 hours.

The danger here is even deeper than this article states. With the GOP able to collaborate with the Obama administration to push through pro-business, pro-rich bills, they will be able to point to a productive session of bipartisan cooperation as a reason to vote for them in the next election.

In fact, the Obama administration's support for these bills that are against the public interest can do serious damage to any future progressive agenda. Naturally, the president will wish to appear productive in his final months in office, but he would serve progressives better if behaved as recalcitrant and obstructive as Republicans did in the last few years.
Now that the GOP's in control, Mitch McConnell is letting some things pass — and taking all the credit

I can't even look at a picture of Mitch McConnell without hearing Jon Stewart's imitation of him. I wish someone would wipe the smile off o his face, except he has no smile.

Today is St George's Day, the national day for the people of England. On the 23rd of April every year, I like to reflect on how England is one of the greatest places on Earth, and how the rest of the world owes England for spreading its awesomeness to all four corners of the planet.

Thank the English whenever you eat a sandwich, use anything with an electric motor, take a photograph, play baseball, fly in a jet aircraft, surf the World Wide Web, or use a computer. These are just a few of the things invented in England by the English.

Let's face it. If you're not English, you probably want to be.

I don't have a desire to be English, but then I'm a reprobate ... so, there you have it. :-)

President Barack Obama criticized Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and others who are opposed to a new trade deal that he is negotiating on Tuesday, saying that his opponents are simply wrong on the facts of the deal. Warren and other Democrats hav...

Let's hope that someday humanity evolves to the point where we don't need a dangerous, deadly weapons to feel secure. You'd think that we could get there from here!

Smile Solutions is a first class dental establishment. There's nothing pleasant about going to see the dentist, but it really helps when you are greeted by friendly staff in a comfortable, modern facility. This clinic is easy to get to and it has ample parking. I had some work done earlier today. Despite having a deep cavity in an upper rear molar that needed a filling, I experienced no pain at all during the surprisingly brief procedure. The chair was comfortable, everything was spotlessly clean and efficiently laid out, and there was music being piped around the clinic to help me relax. - - - UPDATE - - - Yesterday, I had an extraction of a molar and a bone graft to prepare for an implant in 2015. The procedure was physically demanding (lots of digging and heavy pressure), but relatively painless. I was told to expect post-surgery pain and I was prescribed Motrin for the day and Vicodin to help me sleep; however, 24 hours later I have almost no pain at all. Dr. Nguyen is obviously a very skilled dentist and I couldn't be happier with Smile Solutions of West Chester.

I am absolutely delighted by the service I received from Merry Maids. It started with a telephone consultation, during which my specific needs were discussed with courtesy and understanding. I was looking for a one-time cleaning of a VERY dirty condo apartment. Two women turned up exactly on time for the appointment, carrying everything they needed to do the various tasks. They worked extremely hard under difficult circumstances. Some of the grime I asked them to get rid of had been accumulating for years, so they needed to put in a tremendous effort to get things looking like new. I was very impressed with their work. Two bathrooms and a kitchen were transformed. I've worked with other cleaning services before, but this was the first time I've been really satisfied with the results. I thoroughly recommend Merry Maids of West Chester for their hard work, professionalism and attention to detail.

I keep coming back to this place for the great food. Because the building is enormous, it is easily capable of handling hundreds of diners at once. As a consequence of that, it is cost effective for Shady Maple to have a surprisingly wide selection of food for buffet-style eating. It is easy to get to and there is plenty of parking. It is a popular place, so expect to wait a few minutes to pay, and then another few minutes to be seated. I can't give it 5 stars because the atmosphere isn't that great. With so many people in close proximity, there's a lot of noise and you need to have your wits about you when you are wandering around filling your plate in case you bump into another diner. Also, it isn't particularly cheap. The price varies from day to day (from as little as $18 for dinner to as much as $24, per person) and most annoyingly, it is not open on Sunday.

Fried fish, fried shrimp, hush puppies, crab cakes and absolutely delicious french fries. I had cod, shrimp and fries and they were very good indeed.

The cakes at Kyj's Bakery are almost too good to be true. They make a truly spectacular strawberry shortcake with layers of fresh cream, strawberries and a sponge-like cake that melts in the mouth. And if you are looking for a birthday cake (decorated or not), there is simply no better place in the Delaware Valley.

I took my car to Ron Wise Auto Body following a recommendation from my insurance company. I was not disappointed. All damage was repaired in a timely fashion and the car was returned to me fully detailed. Some additional work was needed to get things "just right", and Ron took care of it quickly and without complaint. This is a family run business with a nice personal touch. I received regular updates over the phone, and Ron took care of all the negotiations with the insurance company and adjuster so that I didn't have to do anything. I hope I won't need to have accident damage repaired ever again, but if it becomes necessary I will certainly consider going back to Ron Wise Auto Body. I have no hesitation in giving the firm a strong recommendation.

I've bought two Fords from here, and I always get my Edge serviced here by the great service team. I moved 30 miles away last year, but I still bring my car back here because they do such a great job at a competitive price.
