In the garden: Rocks in the dusk

Last year I complained about the pebbles and clods of tar the plows threw up on my front garden. This year they threw up a whole chunk of road! (I just don't see how tar, being petroleum-based, can be good for the soil, but maybe tar is less vicious than other sorts of the stuff we should leave in the ground; it's been out in the weather, so perhaps its taboo, evil nature has been attenuated).

Who started the fires in Ferguson

I don't know what to make of this. Could be rumor mongering, or could be real. Judge for yourself.

If You Cook It ($35,000 T-day Dinner) the 1%ers Will Come!

Thread: 

According to Erik Sherman in “Restaurant's Decadent Thanksgiving Feast: $35,000 for 4” The Old Homestead Restaurant on Manhattan’s lower west side offered for Thanksgiving a $35,000 celebration for four people ($8,750 a person). The offer extended was to accommodate 3 groups of four.

By Tuesday two of the three celebration packages had been snapped up. One of the buyers was reported to be from a financial institution in NYC and another an out-of-towner. Read more about If You Cook It ($35,000 T-day Dinner) the 1%ers Will Come!

Let's not forget that Missouri's Governor Jay Nixon is a Democrat, mkay?

Because "Nixon," and because of the total pro-cop mentality, I just assumed he was a Republican. Silly me.

Pro-cop twits bully school superintendent into submission

This, from the Superintendent of Saint Paul Public Schools:

I apologize for the misunderstanding around my first tweet Monday night in which I reacted emotionally to the Ferguson grand jury's decision.

My purpose was not to challenge the judgment of the police or the grand jury, but to express my sadness about this tragic situation. I deleted the tweet because it was being misinterpreted and it was distracting from the larger conversation about Ferguson.

Here's the original tweet (via the Times): Read more about Pro-cop twits bully school superintendent into submission

Another Dose of Prosecutorial Discretion

Here's a footnote to my recent post on prosecutorial discretion. Of course, the Grand Jury verdict not to indict Darren Wilson in Ferguson was a product of prosecutor McCulloch's decision to perform a non-directive prosecution accompanied by a "jury dump" without benefit of clear guidelines and instructions. This had the predictable result that the jury would carry on its own trial, not only absent vigorous prosecution, but by all accounts a prosecution that played more of the role of a defense attorney then a representative of law enforcement prosecuting a crime.
