  1. If you can’t make that out, it is a post card from our credit card company. The important part reads:


  We’re please to tell you that your credit card despite with YOUNG’S FENCING has been resolved. The credit issued to you for the amount of $1947.00 … will remain on your account.


Mr. Young sent us a barely legible email a month or two ago, threatening us with a lawyer. Haven’t heard anything more about that, but this came in the mail today.

So. Now the question is: What do we do with the fencing materials he left on our front lawn?

  2. This make much more sense once I realized I was misreading “bacon” when, in fact, it was “beacon”.

Hashtag I have spent too many years on the internet.

  3. I really, really do not like this passage from the Bible. I don’t see any way around the fact that Jesus is rude to this woman for no good reason.

    Jesus isn’t supposed to be rude.

    Jesus is supposed to be “nice” — well, that’s what Christians usually tell ourselves, at least. And when Jesus isn’t nice, He is supposed to be right, i.e. pointing out someone’s hypocrisy or teaching the Pharisees a lesson.

    Not here.

    Jesus’ initial reaction to the woman in this story is rude and wrong.

    But this woman forces Jesus to look at His own prejudices. “What?!?” you cry, “God can’t be prejudiced!!!!!” Maybe not, but Christians believe Jesus was fully human, and in the time and place He grew up, He would have been taught to dislike Canaanites. We don’t have any stories explaining why Jesus would react this way to a Canaanite woman — and we have plenty of other stories where Jesus interacts with women, so it wasn’t her gender that bothered Him.

    So if Jesus had no personal reason to be rude to this woman, but was rude to her anyway, isn’t that prejudice?

A man in a stars-and-stripes t-shirt picks up burning tear gas canister, hurls it back at the militarized riot cops who just shot it at him, and all the while he never puts down his bag of chips.*
This photograph captures the purest essence of America I’ve ever seen. I hope everyone under siege in St. Louis finds safety tonight, and of course, fuck the police.

    If I told you a woman had a Dante quote tattooed above her vagina, you would instantly know which Dante quote it was, right?

    "The more a thing is perfect, the more it feels pleasure and pain."

    "Here begins a new life."

    "He who sees a need and waits to be asked for help is as unkind as if he had refused it."

    "Through me you go into a city of weeping; through me you go into eternal pain; through me you go amongst the lost people."

    "Remember tonight… for it is the beginning of always."

  15. Most obviously, a police officer killed Michael Brown – in cold blood, according to eyewitnesses. But our sons’ and daughters’ rage at the police started long before Michael Brown and his friend were told to get out of the street on Saturday afternoon by a foul-mouthed Ferguson cop.

    In many North County municipalities, it seems police run contests to see how many young black men you can pull over, flaunting the officers’ power and the motorists’ powerlessness. Our young men especially are regularly inconvenienced and humiliated while simply trying to get where they are going. The Missouri Attorney General annually releases a report, which no black person needs to read, that documents appalling disparities in how often black drivers are pulled over and searched, compared to white people, all over the state and the region.

    But Michael Brown was not pulled over while driving. He was told to get out of the street while walking. For offering what was initially, according to an eyewitness, the mildest of resistance to a rude and unnecessary police order, this unarmed teen was shot in the middle of the day, and his bullet-riddled body left by police to lay in the street for hours, as if to provide a grisly example.

    For the sake of Michael Brown - The St. Louis American

    I recommend reading the whole thing.
