An automobile, a bus and a train...

...and then a bit of a walk:
We're returning today to our sprawling campus. Full services, such as they are, will resume tomorrow.

We'll start with the nine letters the New York Times published in yesterday's Sunday Review concerning that journey to Arkansas. We were especially struck by the first letter of the nine.

We've also been reading Chanel Miller's book, Know My Name. The review in yesterday's Book Review section appeared on line a few weeks back and can be accessed here.

  1. Dear Bob, here's a link for you: We're in a permanent coup.

    It's Matt Taibbi, one of my favorite journos. Yes, he too is somewhat affected by TDS, but mercifully much less than you are.

    Despite being a TDS sufferer, he can still comprehend, and report - and without any future anthropologists living inside your damaged head - that it's not The Donald, but your liberal zombie cult that is destroying (or, arguably, has already destroyed) the country, turning it into a banana republic.

    Tsk. Oh well...

    1. It wasn't The Donald who put coal mining executives in charge of the EPA, Wall Streeters in charge of the US Treasury, and a Ponzi scheme loving nitwit in charge of the Department of Education?

      Thanks for confirming your idiocy, dembot zombie.

    2. Somerby did not post anything today, yet you still feel compelled to post an ignoramus comment.

    3. Taibbi spent ten years in the USSR. Compromat or on Putin's payroll? So hard to decide.

      Tsk. Oh well...

  3. Bob,
    I know you have been out of town for several days, and what I'm telling you is history, not news.
    Several days ago a black woman was killed in her home by a Ft. Worth police officer while playing video games with her nephew. This happened a week after a Dallas police officer was found guilty of murdering her black neighbor while he was eating ice-cream and watching TV.
    I know that letters to the editor of the NYTimes is to you news, not history. And is vastly more important to you than either death.
    I know that you will never comment about either killing.
    So to you, DinC, Mao, Trump and all you fellow travelers: Have a nice day.

    1. For TDH, the only important thing is attacking liberals and defending Roy Moore, Ron Johnson and Donald Trump.

  4. BTW Bob,
    At a recent meeting of Trump supporters at one of his Florida hotels a film was shown starring a Trump look-a-like assaulting and killing his political opponents and members of the media.
    How sweet is that!
    One of his sons and his former press secretary attended the meeting. But like Sgt. Schultz "They know nothing!".
    Now back to the NYTimes letters to the editor.
    Or maybe a 24 year old woman reporter.

    1. Have no fear, I'm sure TDH will come up with some pathetic reason to attack the NYT for covering the story of that video and attacking liberals for being upset by it.

    2. Dear dembots, immediately retreat into your safe spaces, and rehab yourselves.

    3. Mao,
      Trump is a liar, a thief and a traitor. And Putin's bitch.
      You, on the other hand, is as bright as a rock.
      Eat shit and die. Scumbag.

      No matter how rich you are; no matter how much you're worth; when it all ends up, you've got to go back to mother earth.
      Scumbag.

    Trump is too incompetent to do anything without a nefarious reason. In this case, he is circumventing court decisions and trying to use the UC Census to obtain citizenship data on people residing in the US using state records.

    What will he use that citizenship data for? Some are concerned that this will have a chilling effect on participation by Latinos in the census. I am more concerned that this data will be used to round people up and put them in camps, deny them jobs, or some similar hostile action against targeted people. Or perhaps it will be used to throw people with Spanish surnames off of voter rolls.

    I don't believe they would go to all this trouble simply to suppress Latino participation in the census. The point of including citizenship questions on the census cannot have been simply to suppress Latino participation. I believe it goes beyond that.
