Re: “Power struggle at AETN

If Pledger is also behind the rampant proliferation of shows hosted by hucksters trying to convince us of the latest fad diet, I say burn her at the stake.

Re: “Mike Anderson out as Razorback basketball coach

Various parts of the world are alternately burning up or drowning in floods, people are being killed for calling a mythical god by a different name, and we're supposed to give a flying fuck who tells college boys what play to run in a damned game?!

Re: “Governor expresses resistance to shift of pig waste regulation

Hey, folks-- let's give him the benefit of the doubt for half a minute. If he really does block this bill-- even by a glancing blow-- it'll be wonderful news in hard, hard times.

Re: “LRPD releases narrative video of Bradley Blackshire shooting

I would never say that Blackshire is blameless. Though, one can understand, in light of all the evidence of police shootings, why a black man might be afraid to hang around a lone cop who's taking a bead on him.

My main point is that Starks violated department policy-- not to mention constitutional liberties-- by using lethal force to stop the flight of a suspect. Possession of a stolen car is not a capital offense. And if you watch the video carefully, you'll notice that the first shots are fired *before* Starks has placed himself in the path of the car. He was not trying to save himself from death or serious injury; he was simply adamant about not letting the guy drive away.

Re: “LRPD releases narrative video of Bradley Blackshire shooting

Ethel, what's your evidence that Blackshire had a gun? The blog post clearly states that police have made no mention of a gun found in the car. *Surely*, Ethel, you're not basing your assumption on the claim of Ms. Clarke; you've devoted considerable verbiage to impugning her reliability.
