Re: Right now I'm reading

I know i posted about Wolfe before. He's fantastic. The fact that SF and fantasy are literary ghettos IMO is a major factor in making him severely underappreciated. If there is any justice he will be remembered for generations. In a time obsessed with grunge and cybertech, Wolfe poured out mythic po...

He's exactly 10 years older than I am. That makes him 85. Look, when I go, among my instructions will be to check in here and let you know. It'll be an occasion to have a drink and a good laugh. Yeah, but we can google you and find out, you're famous. Not regular famous, it's more like diet famous,...

BTW, I now predict that not one democrat will resign or be impeached. Justice and consistency do not guide the Party, only the Will to Power. Time is proving me right.

Re: So about this "MAGA" attack on the Empire actor

I think it makes more sense that she knew him, and reflexively supported him when this came out. Big mistake. With friends like Jussie... It’d be stupid to fake a hate crime. Just wait for the next real one. This smacks of Comet PingPong level of conspiracy theorizing. But I’ll keep the bucket of p...

Oh man, he's going down now. CNN reports sources say police have tracked the rope purchase to the Nigerians at an Ace Hardware. And we already know they cut them loose=testimony deal made, I bet.

Re: Blackface 101

He's technically correct. The first guys from Africa were indentured involuntarily and freed at the end of the term similarly to indentured whites, some of whom did not volunteer either at the time. It took a couple decades for lifetime hereditable slavery to develop.

Somehow I forgot to take that class, even though growing up and attending college in VA.
Same here. I'm about 10 years younger than Northam and I've never seen blackface or a klan costume IRL, only from Hollywood. I'm honestly surprised.

Re: March for Life Attendees Taunt Native Americans

Honestly the professional media has done a much better job of convincing to presume they are liars than Trump ever could. Trump, to me, sounds like he's bullshitting you even when he says something you know is true. Just how he strikes me.

But if you read about this, der Spiegel claims they do use fact checkers... but they specifically don't check quotes with interviewees. Or facts, apparently. It seems they only check "credibility".

Which one would more surely guarantee a Republican victory: a Clinton or Avenatti candidacy? Astounding that theoretically professional political writers wrote pieces saying he should run. Well, I say professional; it was Slate.
