Open Thread Part II

I finished the Koontz book (it was excellent) but now, rather than writing, I’m completely caught up in getting the kids to all their “school starts tomorrow” activities, such as orientations, sports try outs, last-minute school supply shopping etc. Tomorrow will be an exquisite day. I expect to have the house entirely to myself after 7:30 or 8:00. I’m practically incandescent with longing for that wonderful moment when the only sound is my and the dogs’ breathing.

I think that, after 4:00 p.m., my time, I’ll be able to turn my attention towards news again. In the meantime, just because, a song:

    Maybe there has been something systemically wrong in Ferguson’s police department, for quite a long time.

    Food for thought:

    I agree that Ferguson’s police are not without stain. But it appears that, in this case, the police officer, with his face beaten in, might have had good cause to fear for his life. Also, I’m still struggling to understand how blacks destroying their own community advances their cause.

    Book, the thugs out pillaging and looting do not see themselves as members of a community. Community is a racist concept designed to keep brave, bold rebels like them constrained and not free to be themselves.
