So far, every other Olympian, or other serious athlete, interviewed has said Simone Biles did...

was right and proper. They sympathize, and many have been in her place.

There are times when you just shouldn't go on.

I never considered Nikki Haley as part of the extreme asshole contingent, but...

I just got an email from her (don't ask...) claiming that schools, teachers unions and local governments are conspiring to prevent parents from learning what their kids are learning.

Specifically, Critical Race Theory, which will be our downfall. Besides, she says, it's just not right to teach such things without parents' permission.

CRT is a sideshow they are using to inflame the ignorant masses. Unlike things like economic and foreign policies we can legitimately disagree on and debate, it is a non-issue that has no point. An esoteric field of study that became an imaginary problem with no real solutions.

Haley is smart enough to know this is bullshit, but if she's signing on to this sort of nonsense, there is little hope for the Republican Party.

I have no idea how to post individual Reddit videos here, but...

if you go to:


you should see two street justice videos pop up. Probably not for that long, though.

OTOH, when I turned on my phone earlier, it somehow found its way to a looong discussion about Britney Spears. I skimmed through a few hundred posts and EVERYONE thought her father and the judge were evil personified. Most agreed it was a form of slavery, and no one could understand how, if she was so troubled as to need conservancy, she could still put on those concerts without breaking down completely.

I am not a Spears fan, but injustice is injustice.

Listening to BBC this AM and their guy is in Netherlands...

where the Dutch are gobsmacked at the flooding.

For a country largely below sea level, they are shocked that this is completely beyond their understanding.

I've been thinking about the Amazon for quite a while now-- it is a resource that should not...

belong to Brazil and a few other countries. It is central to the planet's workings, and really should be something like a UN protectorate. It is now a net polluter, not a sink, and this affects the planet.

Every nation, and many communities, have areas set aside as "commons" for the good of all. I am very familiar with Long Island Pine Barrens, similar to the upstate NY preserved land and the New Jersey Pine Barrens.


It's been nip and tuck all along, but we've got over 100,000 acres protecting the aquifer for over 2 million people. And protecting the wildlife that's lived there for millennia.

Now, a small area like this is tough enough for one state to pull off, so getting a nation and its neighbors to protect the Amazon is not easy. But, we have to start somewhere. Philippines, Indonesia, Southeast Asia, parts of Africa, large parts of India and China... No matter what we do to stop burning stuff, these areas make up for it in spades.

Somehow, we have to get the word out and get cooperation.

But how?
