Inflammatory headline, but still a good read.

Witnessing all these shootings and killings creates a constant state of terror within minorities, not altogether different from the effect larger populations feel witnessing passenger planes flying into buildings, or gunmen cutting their way through schools and shopping malls, or children blowing themselves up in cramped bazaars. The issue doesn't involve absolute numbers; it involves the effect of knowing that at any time, your number could come up.

The difference is that when the Boston Marathon is bombed, or people fly planes into buildings, or an aggrieved loner goes on a killing spree, we, as a society, pursue justice to the very ends of the earth, if only to sleep better at night. When killer cops rarely, if ever, even step foot in court, let alone get convicted, the absence of immediate justice or punishment leads to an unaddressed fear. It's a fear of ubiquity; a fear that the carnage can be easily replicated, virtually anywhere, by virtually anyone; a fear that our lives don't matter.
Last Saturday, Walter Scott was driving his Mercedes in North Charleston, S.C., when he was pulled over by police officer Michael Slager for driving with a broken taillight. Scott had a complicated life, as many of us do. He was employed and engaged; he owed back child support; in all likelihood he really didn’t want to go to jail. When Slager approached, Scott ran.

Nearly two decades ago, a massive wave struck a container ship and dumped nearly 5 million Legos pieces into the ocean. Today, they are still washing up on shores in England.

#Geekway Day 2 Reviews:

Sushi! Go!: Simple fun, game. Probably a buy
Dungeon Raider: Fun, Ericka really liked it. 
Alhambra: We all enjoyed this. Buy
Carcassonne South Seas: Fun. I think I prefer the original game a little more. No buy
Paradise Fallen: Could have been a fun game but instructions and design elements made the game so frustrating to learn and remember details that it's a no buy. 

Ericka also liked Tsuro of the Sea and Skull and Roses from yesterday.

Good KC BBQ. Love the ribs and the smoked chicken. They do - like all good BBQ places - run out of items from time to time. If you're looking for something particular call ahead.

Long lines to check in. Offered Wi-Fi so sluggish you can't connect to it. Employees seem to be operating on auto pilot. Room facilities deteriorating. This hotel has dropped since my stay two years ago. I'd hate to see them when they are operating with a huge convention in town.
