On Friends Can't Let Friends Shoot People

Fine sentiment, stupid prescription.

On The Very, Very Best Holiday Beers To Bring To A Party

@BadUncle You & me both, but that Goose Island one is really nothing to do with "holiday" taste at all -- just a damn fine traditional brown ale.

On The Very, Very Best Holiday Beers To Bring To A Party

@Clarence Rosario Have you tried the Anchor Xmas this year? It is entirely without merit, sez me. But oh yes, this year's SN Celebration is fabulous!

On I Am David Brooks' Lazy, Unemployable "Missing Man"

Brooks' entire point in this instance of his quite typically idiotic, but influential and dangerous column, is that it's awful to stand in the way of destroying Medicare.

On Bronx DA Throws Out 10-15 Pot Cases Every Day

I know there's a race problem here, but if possession is "the most common misdemeanor charge" in NYC, then I'm thinking that must mean quite a lot of non-minority folks in these numbers, no?

So civil rights & racism, yup.

But mainly, bullshit drug laws.
