Morning Reads for Friday, April 27, 2018

Apparently, Ginny was invited to across the Pond for the birth of the newest Prince and wedding prep for Harry and Meghan. So, you’ve got me for the next two Fridays. Hoooo-ray for you! Also, Happy ACTUAL Birth Day to my soon to be niece. A few more hours and we’ll have a new little member of the tribe.

I’m sure “Tex” has spewed the, “guns don’t kill people, people kill people” line dozens of times during the course of his life.

Mr. McIver is going to make someone very happy in prison.

The city of Savannah should spend it’s ‘surplus’ on hiring new accountants and estimators. First it broke, then it its sending money on things like experimental traffic layouts from folk who suburbain, not urban traffic experts. Then it cancls the olice agreement over money, but sends small fortune on new vehicles, It raised meter fee’s and extending the charging hours for down town parking, changing the fire department funding stream, ignoring your own zoning laws, cut the entire budget of the renewal and development commissions, cut the grants (aka costs and staffing of city buildings) for cultural events and programs,… Read more »

It took my parents 6 days to name me after I was born. Seriously. They had a boy name, and 3 other back up boy names with in 5 hours of finding out mom was pregnant. They were 100% sure their first child was going to be a boy. The parent debated a girl name the whole time. Thankfully they only had one girl, so they got to use the surplus of boy names instead of arguing over girl names again.

My Mom liked to tell the story about choosing baby names when she was pregnant with me. She told her canasta group from St. Matthew’s that, if the baby was a boy, they had decided on ‘John’. One of the group, Mrs. Farkas, didn’t like that idea, saying, “Oh, don’t name him ‘John’! Every Tom, Dick and Harry is named ‘John’!” Mom always said she regretted not submitting that one to Reader’s Digest. And, for the record, when I was born all of the following were named ‘John’: The President The Pope Our parish priest The doctor who delivered me… Read more »

Oddly worded question on the Dem primary ballot:
“Should Georgia pull down our federal tax dollars to save rural hospitals and create more than fifty thousand jobs by expanding Medicaid?”

Def awkward- in an attempt to avoid words like “matching” or to appear as just new spending. But does the DPG not really know the % of Dems who support Medicaid expansion?

It’s a Dem version of wording of Georgia Constitutional Amendments we’re so fond of.

Emulating Republicans maybe explains why Dem views are majority views, but the party is in the minority.

Cronkite was a… what’s the word… libtard?

But, as I have maintained, he was a professional and was able to separate his personal beliefs from his work (mostly).
“I thought that some day the roof was going to fall in … I don’t know why to this day I got away with it,” Cronkite is quoted as saying years later. But he often gave himself deniability with linguistic hedging. Cronkite once told me his liberalism “affected how I looked at the world” but not his reporting.

Ummmm, William, it’s an editorial cartoon. A damn funny one at that! And on top of that, it’s true! Just like everything I’ve ever posted on here. Might not be what you wanna hear but true nonetheless.

Trump is taking credit for Korean rapprochement. Some credit may be due. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/as-two-koreas-talk-peace-trump’s-bargaining-chips-slip-away/ar-AAwtfcN?ocid=spartanntp “A resumption of regular diplomatic exchanges between the two Koreas, analysts said, will inevitably erode the crippling economic sanctions against the North, while Mr. Trump will find it hard to threaten military action against a country that is extending an olive branch.” “He [Trump] hyped this meeting with his tweets, and now the entire focus is going to be on his negotiating prowess.” “Mr. Trump reiterated that he was prepared to cancel the meeting, or walk out in the middle of it, if his diplomatic efforts were… Read more »

Some folks are upset about the Memorial to victims of lynching: https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/lynching-memorial-leaves-some-quietly-seething-let-sleeping-dogs-lie/ar-AAwsi6f?ocid=spartanntp

“They have every right to have the memorial, if it’s true.”

Despite documentation of about 4,000 lynchings, “They were not the norm.”

Of course they weren’t! Lynchings happened to “them”, and it’s probably fake news anyway.

facetiously: Why can’t they build something dignified. That we can all be proud of. You know, like a statue of military guy on a horse that owned slaves and nobly fought for the right to do so, and erect one at nearly every courthouse in the state?
