"I may agree with Doc on some of this, not on the New Zealand reporting,which was appropriate, but on the lack of reporting of the bombings of such sites as a Roman Catholic cathedral.  Christian deaths overseas are woefully underreported. I…"

Profile Information

Bio
Male, Jewish, in my early sixties, married with kids (well, at this point I guess that should be "kid"). Thanks to Lezlie for avatar artwork - sort of a translation of my screen name. "Salaam" is peace in Arabic, hence the peace sign. (No, my name doesn't mean "hunk of meat" and yes, the pun is intentional.)

NBC News just released a story about police racial profiling of drivers. The story concerns a national study done by the Stanford Open Policing Project, who released their traffic stop data to NBC. The sample size:

Nearly 100 million stops over 21 states and 29 municipal police departments from 2011 to 2017

What do Be My Baby (Ronettes), Mr. Tamborine Man (Byrds), Strangers in the Night (Sinatra), Good Vibrations (Beach Boys), the Pet Sounds album (also Beach Boys), Mrs. Robinson (Simon & Garfunkel), Bridge Over Troubled Waters (Simon & Garfunkel), The Way We Were (Streisand), Aquarius/Let the Sun Shine In (Fifth Dimension), the theme for Three’s Company, Close to You (Carpenters), and the theme for The Brady Bunch have in common?

That, by the way, is an insanely abbreviated…

On the first day the Lord created Property

Posted on March 7, 2019 at 9:18am 11 Comments

I just wrote this for another site, where this probably describes most of the blogging population. I thought you might enjoy it.

In the beginning was the Void, and the Lord spake, saying: There is nothing to own here. Let there be Property. 

 

And He could not see that it was good, so He spake, saying: What is the point of having Property if I cannot see it? Let there be Light. And He separated…

Grace Slick and a Chick-Fil-A commercial during the Grammies

Posted on March 1, 2019 at 6:34am 10 Comments

Chick-Fil-A, an extremely conservative anti-gay marriage company, ran an ad during the Grammies. It consisted of cows handing out VR headsets and people reacting with obvious delight to whatever the video is, then a note to go to their website to view it.

Maybe one of you can find the ad. It may prove difficult as it’s been pulled, even from YouTube. The video it links to on the Chick-Fil-A website has also been pulled.

Why?

It has to do with the music from the ad, which…
