Sweet. Now all that oil will pass right through my neighborhood on way, way, way more dangerous trains.
commented on Arrest Warrant and Manslaughter Charges Issued for Police Killer of Terence Crutcher
so this shooting follows a very common pattern - a person refuses to comply with police and police are worried the person has a weapon. Some effort at non-lethal physical control is applied with apparent success but in the aftermath a cop not able to handle the adrenaline pulls their trigger. The cop claims that the person shot was still moving in a way that suggested going for a weapon, and the police department and union defend that officer with vigor.
Oh wait, except that last part didn't happen - this department immediately threw this officer under the bus. Hmmmmm, I wonder what's different, has the attitude of police departments changed overnight? Or maaaybe it's something about this officer .. cough, cough, vagina, cough ...
commented on ST3 Supporters to Reuven Carlyle: We Can Fund Education and Transit
Carlyle is a rational politician, but you don't include his specific defense of his stance. I don't know what that is, but Reuven's never been one to lunge without working things through. In fact mostly you just reprint the most polemic sound bites from opposing Twitter. Nice "journalism."
commented on Savage Love
Jesus Christ who gives a magical flying horse fuck about the semantics of unicorn? Somewhere a 9 yesr old girl with rainbow stickers all over her bedroom is going nuh uh YOU'RE using unicorn wrong. Language is squishy. Your stalky commitment dragging up Savage's years old past uses though is solidly creepy.

Sounds like a dangerous way to become unconscious. How about instead he leaps out of a windowless van and reads to you from Charles Mudede on brutalist architecture?
I kid, Charles is awesome :)
