The alternative weekly reader has hit the ether. Yesterday was the first day of the NFL season. At 1:05, I turned the tv on. The Falcons were making their first punt of the new year. It was blocked. ~ #PalindromeWeek is here #PalinDivorce does not qualify ~ Why do people burn chemicals in an electronic device, and pull the fumes into their body? Is it the taste? Do you get a buzz from it? What is going on here? ~ you mentioned Donald Trump very briefly and I’m not gonna get into an argument with you about whether or not he’s a racist that I don’t regard that as a productive use of our time ~ we are simply the products of an oppressive history and any flaws you find in our social functioning are to be attributed to what To white people white supremacy it smacks of somebody who we will leave nameless in this conversation but you know who I’m talking about and this house this whole shtick this whole apologia that’s what it is it’s apologia it is giving an account of failure that’s what it is it’s laying off the responsibility for failure on structured okay and you know I find that deeply philosophically unsatisfying ~ @OverheardOnDuty Wtf why is it inappropriate for a cop to tweet about sex? How do you think baby cops are made? When a mommy cop and daddy cop love each other and express that love through handcuffs, bodycam porn, and confiscated drugs, a baby cop is born. Grow up. ~ @ChaseMit Congratulations to Felicity Huffman on making it into an exclusive institution based purely on merit ~ @OverheardOnDuty First on scene to a wreck a while ago. Two were trapped and a fire was spreading from the hood. I had to break the drivers arm to get her untangled. By that point the fire was into the compartment. I’m glad she passed out in pain. She didn’t have to watch her husband burn alive. ~ @OverheardOnDuty Well at one point she was my slam piece and turned into my girlfriend. We had a kid and she dumped my for my brother. Then she married him but then got with my nephew. So that’s who she threw the hatchet at. ~ pictures today are from The Library of Congress. ~ this poem was performed tuesday night:

I searched the wikiquotes page for Mohandas Gandhi. The search terms used were lose, find, service, others. This quote did not appear. ~ Interview lady: Kim Gordon from Sonic Youth posted this idea that women are drawn to the bass because it’s the naturally nurturing role Tina Weymouth: oh please I don’t think it has anything to do with gender and it’s one of the reasons I I don’t i’ve always (avoided) answering feminist questions it’s just such it’s so loaded if you want to do something just do it don’t talk about it and don’t criticize other women if if if they want to go out you know and swing on a wrecking ball naked why not let them do what they want we just are smart as women because we have our balls neatly tucked inside where they’re protected and that’s that ~ @chamblee54 I don’t understand that and like the amount of time I spent on this because like I’m not a professional reporter I’m not even a professional writer I don’t know what I’m doing ~ Dauber’s opponents, however, often speculate that the recall was an act of revenge because of her friendship with Emily Doe’s family. After Doe penned a searing 12-page letter to Turner that quickly went viral, critics suggested Dauber had been the author. Dauber flatly rejected that accusation, and dismissed the notion that she’s out for personal revenge as “so ridiculous it doesn’t even deserve a response.” ~ Stanford University law professor Michele Dauber is one of the leaders of the recall campaign. Dauber is a friend of the victim’s and was in the courtroom for Turner’s sentencing. She’s an outspoken on-campus activist who has helped push through more stringent sexual harassment and abuse reporting and investigation policies. Dauber also is an adept Democratic fundraiser who has organized a well-financed recall campaign with glossy mailers juxtaposing photos of Persky with President Trump and Turner’s booking mug shot. ~ and ask do you have a good working definition of racist it’s it’s a it’s a word that’s that’s often used and rarely defined okay I mean I’m not you know gonna give you a dictionary definition but I would say something like a person who has unreasoning contempt or disdain based on the race of another person a person who believes a set of things without factual foundation that are discrediting you know blacks are lazy Jews or greedy can’t be trusted things of this town okay so strong effective reaction against the group along with unfounded beliefs that support the the hostility the antagonism ~ mean it’s true that I mean like you I look on social media like Twitter and see things I consider egregious virtue signaling and they drive me nuts on the other hand what none of us is ever entirely non performative or I mean we always have a peer group in mind that we’re trying to impress right ~ Whenever Glenn talks about incarceration here, he seems to mention Stanford… they are currently in the news, with the (commercially motivated) re-emergence of Brock Turner. Some want to change the school to prison pipeline to a swimming pool to prison pipeline ~ > @existentialcoms A lot of people don’t seem to get this, but being nasty online 24/7 is “problematic”, regardless of how “correct” your opinion are. No one wants to live in the world you are creating. ~ pictures today are from The Library of Congress. ~ selah

chamblee54 – Yesterday, there was a discussion here about the term Cross Keys. Here is what I found. In four years at Cross Keys High School, I never heard anyone say what it meant. ~ Mr. Bear – Nice nosing around c54. As with any good research, the answers spur a new set of questions. Like bringing up the subject of restaurant sit-ins and of why Herren’s survived a lot longer than Leb’s and the Pickrick. I’m old enough to remember the demonstrators who were outside my high school baccalaureate ceremony. And that the issues which were raised found remedy later that summer. A different time. Thanks. ~ chamblee54 – The buildings that housed Leb’s and Herren’s are still standing. Herren’s is now a theater. The Pickrick was bought by Georgia Tech, of course, used as a storage building, and demolished. I always thought it should be remembered in some way. When you tell a story, you should tell about the villains, as well as the heroes. I worked with this man once who claimed to have worked at the Pickrick. He said they had a parrot, which he taught to cuss. The night Lester was on the Dick Cavett show, Truman Capote was one of the other guests. Mr. Capote said, in his own inimitable manner, that he had eaten at the Pickrick. “All I’m going to say is that it was not finger lickin’ good.” ~ Mr. Bear – In my feeble bear brain, I seem to remember the cussing parrot story. It’s funny what gets remembered and what doesn’t. People who make it a point to know such stuff make a point of remembering the ax handles and his penchant for riding a bicycle backwards, but they forget his opening the governor’s office to all comers for “Little People’s Day” and for his efforts toward prison reform in Georgia. However odd he might have been, he was honest. I’ve got an ax-handle story from 1968 that is probably best lost to the mists of memory…… ~ chamblee54 – The time I went to “Little People’s Day” it was held at the Govenors Mansion. “The migration north continued to West Paces Ferry Road when the current Governor’s Mansion officially opened on January 1, 1968. Lester Maddox was the first governor to occupy the current Governor’s Mansion.” The previous GM was on The Prado in Ansley Park. “The large granite home sat impressively on three hilltop acres, but the scale of the house was not considered large enough for many state functions. The grandness of the house was also not enhanced … by the goats and cows that were kept on site during the terms of both Eugene Talmadge and Herman, his son and later governor.” ~ Archival Atlanta: Electric Street Dummies, the Great Stonehenge Explosion, Nerve Tonics, and Bovine Laws : Forgotten Facts and Well-Kept Secrets from Our City’s Past is a book about Atlanta history ~ I got into a conversation about Arlo Guthrie. I saw where a post had been recycled. This was the result. This is about the perfect country western song, Ed Muskie, and the first time I heard the word empathy ~ @franssuper How in the name of the universe could I respect any fascist, nazi or white supremacist? @chamblee54 See people as human beings instead of walking labels. ~ pictures for you today are from The Library of Congress. ~ selah

School Is Accused of Racial Insensitivity Over Hairstyle Guidelines Display “What happened in DeKalb,” she said, “is the reason those natural hair ban laws should be expanded across the country.” ~ I mean yes I do think he’s a racist and I wrote a piece about it in the Atlantic about a year ago at this point where I was saying that even if he used the n-word it wouldn’t surprise me it’s clear how he feels and so part of me at this point everybody’s clutching their pearls of these things that he’s writing and I’m thinking why this is what he’s like the only question is why you have this cluster of events and whether or not he’s cannily thinking I’m gonna whip up my base by saying racist things and I honestly don’t think the man has enough forethought or mentals its flesh I don’t think he has the staying power to plan anything politically he might have a certain snail-like sense that a racist no I’m sorry I can’t even whit’s people up and he wants to start whipping up his base maybe but that’s ~ @chamblee54 @GlennLoury @JohnHMcWhorter @bloggingheads I mean yes I do think he’s a racist at a recent meeting in South Bend, some representatives of Al Sharpton tried to speak. The local activists said, this is our problem, you don’t need to be here. ~ Tucker Carlson wrongly tells his viewers the country’s white supremacy problem ‘is a hoax’ ~ If you try to draw a maze, you use the same template as when you draw a labyrinth. It is a concentric circle, with alternating layers. One layer is the path, one layer is the wall. The path defines the walls, and the walls define the path. The difference between a maze, and a labyrinth, is where you put the doors, turnarounds, and blocks. With the maze, you have choices. If you make the correct choices, you get to the center sooner. If you make an incorrect choice, you will go on a useless side journey. With the labyrinth, you have no choices. However, you have the longest possible path into the center. ~ Reporter Confronts Residents About Trump’s Baltimore Comments. They Demolish The Left’s Narrative, Heckle Al Sharpton. ~ @KidRock Taylor Swift wants to be a democrat because she wants to be in movies….period. And it looks like she will suck the door knob off Hollyweird to get there. Oldest move in the book.

tedious brief merry and tragical ~ begin to feel dolly parton controls
blow thou winter wind hillary scold ~ spread negativity about the man
the air bite shrewdly it is very cold ~ con man donnie doesn’t like the plan
the winter of our discontent appeared ~ hung like an icicle on a dutchman’s beard

The r-word is a dandy distraction. Not that I would correct Mary’s babydaddy, but I would be the words “perceived as” in front of the r-word. Not everyone considers stupid tweet to be worthy of the r-slur. ~ Writing poetry is neither a game nor a chore, it is rather the art of choosing the right words and to assemble them correctly and musically. We ought to read and write and not the contrary. ~ @jordanbpeterson One more week to get something from my Rule 7 Collection from @teespring #12rulesforlife ~ Did you ever think we would be having serious discussions about “The President’s tweets”? ~ I was mostly commenting about the word tweet. Fifteen years ago, a tweet was a useless noise from a bird. I admit, I follow @realdonaldtrump. I like getting an unfiltered view of his madness. With previous world leaders, you had to wait on the press to report on their idiocy.

@itsericathomas At the pool @Westin and after the waitress ask the Caucasian people on both sides of me for their order and skipped over me minutes later the pool boy ask me for my room key. This can not be real right now. I am a guest too right. #racist ~ If you don’t have a type, do you have a hand written? ~ Not many people know this, but youtube has transcripts. To see them, click on the three dots below the screen. Unfortunately, they sometimes get things wrong. In a recent episode of bloggingheads.tv, Glenn Loury said “Kaepernick wants to take the knee et cetera you could go on see what I’m getting at.” The transcript said “Kapernick wants to take the neon love Ted said I could go on you see what I’m getting at.” ~ “I often think it’s a silly question when you ask me if is trump a racist I often think it’s like almost like trying to decide whether or not somebody is a terrorist or something like that because it’s like we have this moral standard and we’re not going to assign and we’re gonna judge people who’s the racist who’s not a racist” ~ BM are great initials for him. At least it is a stage name for Barry Alan Pincus. For Bette MIdler, it is her birth name, with no middle name. ~ I think this may be more about the changing ph of the oceans. The oceans have been absorbing excess CO2, and they are becoming more alkaline. This has serious implications for the food chain. Climate change may be the least of our worries. ~ I am not a scientist, but I think the water is becoming more alkaline. Acidification is a better sounding word, though. We are talking about delicate balances here. The turning point for CO2 in the atmosphere is 350 parts per million. This is 0.00035‬. These balances have evolved over 4 billion years. We have done this damage in the last 200 years. 200 compares to 4bn like one minute compares to 35 years. ~ mi cuerpo es como una iglesia catolica Lleno de pan, vino y culpa ~ pictures posted with reckless intent and shameless singularity are from The Library of Congress.

On a more or less serious note: Folks…please don’t flush your drugs m’kay. When you send something down the sewer pipe it ends up in our retention ponds for processing before it is sent down stream. Now our sewer guys take great pride in releasing water that is cleaner than what is in the creek, but they are not really prepared for meth. Ducks, Geese, and other fowl frequent our treatment ponds and we shudder to think what one all hyped up on meth would do. Furthermore, if it made it far enough we could create meth-gators in Shoal Creek and the Tennessee River down in North Alabama. They’ve had enough methed up animals the past few weeks without our help. So, if you need to dispose of your drugs just give us a call and we will make sure they are disposed of in the proper way. ~ Mehdi Hasan AOC was born in the Bronx; Ayanna Pressley in Cincinnati; Rashida Tlaib in Detroit. Your regular reminder that the president of the United States is not just a brazen racist but the laziest and most unoriginal (‘go back to where you came from’) of racists ~ @MittRomney The president’s comments were destructive, demeaning, and disunifying. The President of the United States has a unique and noble calling to unite the American people – of all different races, colors, and national origins. In that respect, the president failed badly. ~ .@RashidaTlaib is going back where they came from an option for your parents? ~ @realDonaldTrump Those Tweets were NOT Racist. I don’t have a Racist bone in my body! The so-called vote to be taken is a Democrat con game. Republicans should not show “weakness” and fall into their trap. This should be a vote on the filthy language, statements and lies told by the Democrat….. ~ The Georgia Primary is March 24. On this day, you can cast a SECRET BALLOT for one of the contenders. Until March 24, you are not required to pay attention, or worry, about the Democrat clown car. ~ @AndrewFeinberg JUST NOW: I asked @KellyannePolls, who’d just said @realDonaldTrump was not telling Omar/Tlaib/Pressley/AOC to go back to Somalia/Gaza/Puerto Rico/etc, which countries he was referring to. She responded by asking me where my ancestors came from, thereby confirming what he meant ~ “booing is a bit tacky don’t you think” Dick Cavett, after an appearance by Governor Ronald Reagan, on The Dick Cavett Show. ~ The basic dimension is 1:1.612. This is an eccentric number like pi, that can be calculated forever. There are tons of mathematical qualities, which are mostly over my head. This is also known as the Fibonacci series of numbers.. My blog has 720 pixel columns. The golden rectangle for this is 720×447. On my graphic poems, all the panels are 720×447. If you look around, you will see this rectangle everywhere. It is considered pleasing to the eye. ~ Person With Incorrect Racial Values ~ Three Members of California-Based White Supremacist Group Sentenced on Riots Charges Related to August 2017 “Unite the Right” Rally in Charlottesville ~ Atlanta natives like to say “go back where you came from” Or, as Lewis Grizzard said, “Delta is ready when you are.” ~ Trapped: A Real Life Nightmare – Franchesca & Show ~ Why There’s No Such Thing as Woke Porn – Franchesca & Show ~ The Ultimate Club Anthem: “One Big Pile” – Franchesca & Show ~ @chamblee54 If I absolutely have to have a black woman trapped inside my head, please let it be someone other than Franny aka @chescaleigh ~ @TheKevinAllison Is this a personal insult? ~ @chescaleigh ah someone i blocked years ago who continues to follow my every move online lolol don’t even bother Kevin! ~ @TheKevinAllison Nuts. Anyway… that sketch is hilarious! ~ @chescaleigh welcome to my life lol and thank you! ~ @chamblee54 to the lady who blocked me on twitter? yes ~ @TheKevinAllison Yeah, she should. You’re an asshole. ~ @chamblee54 @chescaleigh likes to ruffle feathers, and doesn’t care if feelings get hurt… a bully is someone who can dish it out, but can’t take it ~ @chamblee54 she likes to say that intentions don’t count, but results are what matters… i asked her about #colinkaepernick his intention was to protest racism, the result was offending people …. she did not like that ~ @AdamSacks I don’t know dude, sounds like she’s already in your head. ~ @chamblee54 I haven’t thought about her in ages, until I saw this video on twitter… bless her heart ~ pictures today are from The Library of Congress. Jack Delano was the photographer in December 1940 ~ At a Saturday night square dance in Clayville, Rhode Island ~ selah

“I have a story out today that I’ve been working on for most of this year.

The possesive pronoun of she could be Cher. ~ Without Ross Perot, GHW Bush would have been re-elected. It is eerie to have Mr. Perot meet his maker when Slick Willie may be getting in more trouble. ~ This is another manufactured controversy. Very few people have complained about a black lady playing Ariel. Even if they did, why should anyone pay attention? This is cynical movie promotion. America is being played for fools, again.

Obviously, the man should not have made that statement. Does the tv station have any responsibility for talking to this man? Apparently, he has not been served with any legal documents.

What’s Wrong With Palestinian Surrender? “Yet a national suicide of the Palestinians’ current political and cultural ethos is precisely what is needed for peace.” ~ Actually, Ronnie (or government actors while he was POTUS) sold weapons to Iran, with Israel as the middle man. Ronnie also sold chemical weapons to Iraq … Iraq and Iran were in a gruesome war at the time. Ronnie took the profits from those deals to buy weapons for terrorists in Central America. Ronnie used drug runners to transport those weapons to Central America. The drug runner planes were not empty when they returned to the USA. ~ “One day he (President Trump) says something, another day he says something, but I think (there’s a) lack of moral principle,” the Dalai Lama told the BBC.” I disagree. Mr. Trump has a lack of moral interest. ~ Marsha Johnson did not show up at Stonewall until the riot was in full swing. “Marsha: The way I winded up being at Stonewall that night, I was having a party uptown. And we were all out there and Miss Sylvia Rivera and them were over in the park having a cocktail. I was uptown and I didn’t get downtown until about two o’clock, because when I got downtown the place was already on fire. And it was a raid already. The riots had already started. And they said the police went in there and set the place on fire. They said the police set it on fire because they originally wanted the Stonewall to close, so they had several raids. And there was this, uh, Tiffany and, oh, this other drag queen that used to work there in the coat check room and then they had all these bartenders. And the night before the Stonewall riots started, before they closed the bar, we were all there and we all had to line up against the wall and they was all searching us.” ~ well you joke but I think if maybe if you learn to drink it responsibly you know we adults drink throughout the day and then just sort of go to bed at a reasonable hour because we’re tired if they learn to do that you know maybe this this would be a slightly less bad thing ~ @gaywonk The worst part of Pride month is realizing how many of your new gay friends would’ve criticized the Stonewall riots for not being “strategic.” ~ There’s no use arguing with Andrew Sullivan gays you just have to drag them kicking and screaming into a better future. ~ Don’t let your queer rage be shaken by white gays lecturing about “tactics” or “respectability.” They were wrong yesterday, they’re wrong today, they’ll be wrong tomorrow. And eventually, they’ll be toasting you at a fancy HRC gala, swearing they were behind you the whole time. ~ Donald Trump Jr. shared a racist tweet about Kamala Harris and then deleted it after it went viral, fanning the flames of a new ‘birther’ conspiracy ~ @ali Kamala Harris is *not* an American Black. She is half Indian and half Jamaican. I’m so sick of people robbing American Blacks (like myself) of our history. It’s disgusting. Now using it for debate time at #DemDebate2? These are my people not her people. Freaking disgusting. ~ pictures today are from The Library of Congress.
