Aug 17 Medina commented on Hotter Than Any Other July On Record.
I went to Mr. Mass's lecture tonight in Port Angeles. He indicated July 2016 was hot because of El Nino. Also, the climate of 2080 will be about the same as the weather during the summer of 2015.

But he absolutely believes Global Warming is occurring. The solution to Global Warming is decreasing global population and increased technology for developing nations.

Seemed legit.

**He also does not read the Stranger.
May 1, 2015 Medina commented on New Music Study Says 33 Is the New "Old".
I'm confused. If I listen to Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson, Turnpike Troubadours and other Americana, is that considered new music or is it a rehash of older music? If so, I haven't listened to new music since about age 33.

I do like that new Elle King song though.

I've driven past this prison many times going to the Royal Gorge Bridge and Park. BTW, the Royal Gorge now features zip lines! http://www.koaa.com/story/28655215/royal…

The guitar chord video after Drunk Judy #1 is pretty funny too.
May 6, 2014 Medina commented on Leslie Jones Told Some Dirty Jokes About Slavery on SNL This Weekend.
Wow, everything up to the Jones bit was bad, high-school skit comedy bad. The Russian lady bit was embarrassing and derivative, What's next some Pollock jokes? Lets bring back Yakov Smirnoff - What a country!

As for the slave bit, context is key. I can't help thinking that it somehow is in context because of the recent Clive Bundy incident. What was unsettling about Clive Bundy wasn't so much he said it, but that he said it publicly. In the last few weeks people have been talking about slavery, so Ms. Jones' comments seem to flesh this slavery issue out in public again. Seemed like it was satire of Clive Bundy's comment.

This context is clearly different than Chris Rock's bit. He was speaking about black people to black people. White folks might laugh, but they weren't the main audience.

In contrast, I think Ms. Jone's bit was for white people. It was to make them feel uncomfortable. It was easy to dismiss Clive Bundy, but maybe not so easy to dismiss her point.

Seems edgy to me and possibly missed its mark, but not sure it was as out of context as the Salon piece indicates.

@3, a. Jane Fonda, b. Oliver Stone (ok, he's a director, whatever) c. maybe Sean Penn. Hmm, come to think of it, you make a good point.

Embarrassment is debatable. Is Matt Damon an embarrassment for advocating toilets? Is Tim Robbins or Susan Sarandon an embarrassment? If the bar is that low, then I guess Paul is correct.

C'mon, that skit was pretty funny. Better to laugh at a silly government inefficiency instead of worrying about rebuilding another Middle East country or burying dead soldiers! Things are getting better.
Nov 6, 2013 Medina commented on Savage Love.
One's hypothetical reaction to having a child may be much different than the reality.

She could have a child and find out that she was not ready. He may discover that a child was exactly what he wanted but didn't know it!

Weird how life turns the tables.
