Re: “UPDATE: Gunman fatally shot by police early today in River Market

For all our technological advances, it appears we humans haven't changed much in 5000 years.…

A spoiler for those who don't want all the nitty gritty details:

"'The aim of the offender was to kill him, and he decides to take a long-distance shot -- could be a learning effect from what happened one or two days before,' Inspector Horn said. 'Which is pretty much what you see all the time nowadays. Most homicides are personal, and follow violence and an escalation of violence. I want to follow him, find him and kill him. All the emotions we have in homicide, these things have not died out in all these years.'"

Re: “UPDATE: Gunman fatally shot by police early today in River Market

Every day, it seems. Every damned day!
No, Stu, I'm not looking for votes, Democrat or otherwise. Certainly not otherwise. I am saying there are too damned many guns floating around, easily accessible to all. This morning there's also shooting news from Memphis, Cincinnati and who knows where else.
Oh, you mean there absolutely was a righteous need for the LR officers to use their guns? From what we know now it sounds like it, but I'm willing to wait for more information before I reach a firm conclusion.

Re: “The open line, plus: Arkansas Democrats elect Gray party chair; two dead in shootings

I suppose the belt buckling issue could be worse, Silverback. I can recall a long ago time when I had to lie on the bed, THEN take a deep exhale and (happily?) struggle to button my jeans.
Not that long ago, I dug an old pair I really liked out of the closet and tried them on. I actually did lay down on the bed to see if I could button them before I came to my senses. I'm too old to walk around with my eyes bulging all day.

Re: “CBS: Pence cancels trip to Little Rock

You probably would have ended up under the jail, Jabberwocky. Even so, I'll admit to trying to borrow a pussy cat hat and attending. BTW, we need some pussycat hats in something other than yarn. They're much too hot for spring and summer wear.

Re: “Police chase from North Little Rock to Grant County ends with shooting of suspect

I'm guessing that fella didn't know anything about timber company roads when he took to a gravel getaway.

Re: “CBS: Pence cancels trip to Little Rock

I guess we have some reason to be thankful for Trump's short attention span, assuming the news from the House is correct.
Won't help if a bomb-'em-or-not situation arises anywhere in the world though. Bombs away and "move on" may well be the order. That would probably be "beautiful" in Trump lingo, damn the longer term ramifications.
("Horrible", she thought mockingly. And not a little fearfully.)

On to a pressing question from this quarter: Anyone see how Trump got up in that truck? That first step can be a doozy if you've never done before and are out of shape. I'm not sure I could do it gracefully any more and I've had some long ago practice.
New York based Trump son Barron or some White House employee's young 'un would have made a much better photo op. But of course, that would require Trump to take a proverbial back seat, wouldn't it?

Re: “UPDATE: Gun bill exemptions approved by Senate; NRA will fight them

Uhm, did our friendly neighborhood NRA guy just kick the guv in the teeth or is my read of the situation all wrong?
An aside to the guv: If I were you, I wouldn't extend him an offer to appear at your press conference next time. The whole situation kinda makes you look dumb.
