..what do you do with them? I have had hundreds of exchanges like this one with earnest young people (mostly young ladies; in an earlier age they would have been the severe, sexless sisters of Unitarian missionaries), who insist, without blushing, that you simply cannot be racist towards white people, particularly white men. This appears..
..with a vengeance I borrowed my title from a meme I saw yesterday. It’s perfect. The same people who were worried about Commie Flu hot spots four days ago, the same ones who ridiculed first amendment protesters, the same ones who called church-goers potential Darwin Award winners, seem to have utterly forgotten the horrible danger..

Death to the New Normal For Americans who have watched “emergency” field hospitals being taken down and mercy ships leaving port without having treated any Commie Flu patients — for people capable of balancing health risks against quality of life — the “new normal” is looking something like a slow, ultra-hygienic and managed death —..
Good science lands the plane, bad science takes the credit.. In a decidedly more optimistic and productive world, (a few months ago), I purchased a fantastic new drone called the Mavic 2 Pro which makes taking aerial video absurdly easy — even for someone with questionable hand-eye coordination like myself.
