Anti-choice protesters are some of the scariest, short-sighted people I've ever had the misfortune of meeting.

I like the sign with the arrow pointing to the clinic. I had a hard time finding the local PP office last month. If someone had been standing out front with a big yellow sign, I wouldn't have had to drive all the way around the block again.

Can we get someone on that, please?

Re the LAPD cop gone nutters, that's a horrific story. And it's yet another data point painting the bullshit of the "Yay, Guns!" crowd as bullshit.

There are no 'Good Guys with Guns', that's just a now-thoroughly discredited point and the "Yay, Guns!" crowd knows it.

No argument about the national disgrace, as someone who voted no on 26 a couple of years ago and who made plans to get Plan B from out of state to hand out as needed.

But for the sake of accuracy: Jackson is not in the Delta.

@5 well, no, but anytime one can use a Paul Simon lyric, whether or not it's accurate, one must jump (in diamond-soled shoes) at the chance and even if you've seen them all and then they're all the same. I know what I know, though I have no opinion about this and I have no opinion about that.

(Yes, that was terrible; yes it was forced. But I had fun, so: whatever.)

@7 yeah, their sports coverage is kind of spotty here. Great Mexico-Jamaica game last night and no mention.

Can someone verify that the drone ban only applies to cops? I don't think we should keep ourselves out of a pot and pizza delivery-by-drone future.

@Dom:

"...who oversaw a largely secret drone program that killed an American."

Negative, it's about drones that have killed innocent children, women, men, herders, farmers and others, who have been labeled, "collateral damage" -- that's what it's about, Dom!

Killing an American without due process raises Consitutional question that killing other citizens does not. I don't think it's a judgement on the value of lives.

The LAPD is busy shooing up the town in their efforts to find one of their own, who's hunting them.

@9 and @10 Keep in mind it's also not just about "an American" as in Awlaki, but also his teenage American son.
