The Bullies’ Pulpit (Updated) 0

At the Las Vegas Sun, Vicki Larson wonders where the civility went.

And, elsewhere in the same paper, sportswriter Ray Brewer laments similar issues in high school athletics.

Instead of not letting you leave, this one follows you around: David Curran tells of taking his family to a vacation rental only to discover afterwards that the landlord had left surveillance cameras in place.

(At the end of the article, he offers some hints as to how to protect yourself against intrusive landlords.)

I know that I am not the only one to notice the irony in the “Right-to-Life” party’s willingness to court infection and death, for school children no less, during a time of pandemic.
