Wednesday Motes to Enlighten

The questions not asked:  Less than two weeks after collapsing on the field, the Buffalo Bills confirm Damar Hamlin is out of the hospital, and has even visited with his team. Did you know, from 1970 to 2020 (50 years) 1,312 athletes suffered from cardiac arrest and died. That’s roughly 26 per YEAR.  From 2021 to 2022 (1 year) 1,598 athletes have suffered cardiac arrests and died. That’s an increase of… HOLY SHAT!!! What changed? WHAT CHANGED?

Lost Angeles: In internal e-mails Chief Michel Moore said that “public lobbies should only contain official items” and that the display of thin blue line flags is “unnecessary for our mission.” His messages were in response to a recent “community complaint” about the display of the  flag in the front lobby of the LAPD’s Olympic Station near MacArthur Park.  He said the complainants claimed that the flag symbolizes “violent extremist views” associated with the Proud Boys and other groups. Hey LAPD, dig up Chief Parker. Yes, he’s been dead since 1966, but he still has more balls than this guy.

So it starts: Police could be allowed to shut down protests before they cause serious disruption, under new government plans. Downing Street said the proposals would help officers clamp down on “a disruptive minority” who use tactics like blocking roads and slow marching. It said the changes seek to give police greater flexibility and clarity over when they can intervene. Remember, once a power is granted, it is NEVER repealed, it just grows bigger.

Letter to the Editor: 1/14/23 :  “To kick off  Climate Change Hawaii 2023, Gov. Josh Green pledged to commit $100 million plus of the stateʻs $1.9 billion budget surplus to a climate impact fund to fight climate change and preserve the state’s natural resources. Meanwhile, I’m paying $8 for a dozen eggs, $5 for a gallon of gas, and have to have my vehicle realigned three times a year due to the pot holes I have to drive over every day. The climate change soothsayers are what, 0 for 26? Sorry, I can think for better uses for that “surplus”.” Printed on a Saturday, when there is only the inter-webz subscription only version.

Can anyone tell me what the hell this is a statue of? Anyone?? Please???

And just how does it celebrate MLK?

Playlist this weekend; First Aid, Ed Bruce, Kris Kristofferson, Emmy Lou Harris, and the Kingston Trio. Just to name a few.
