I must say, this does seem a wee bit intrusive to me. It certainly intrudes on the rights of local government to govern locally.

“Facts Are What People Think” 0

Writing at Psychology Today Blogs, Glenn Geher discusses what happens when politics collides with objective face, that is, with science. A snippet (emphasis added):

At its core, the goal of science is to, blindly and fairly, help us understand the world through carefully implemented data collection and statistical processes.

On the other hand, political behavior is all about how certain narratives and decisions are endorsed because they ultimately advance the goals of some select individual or groups of individuals. The second that politics enters the world of science, we have a problem on our hands.

“An Armed Society Is a Polite Society” 0

Resolve automotive differences politely.

Following the collision, the owner of the parked car approached the other car’s driver. APD indicates the driver took out a gun and shot the parked car’s owner in the stomach.
The owner of the parked car returned fire, shooting the driver in the hip.

The owner of the parked car ran away from the scene but was located by APD officers about three blocks away near the intersection of Montview Boulevard and Galena Street.

The story goes on to report that both men are in the hospital and at least one of them will be charged.

Vaccine Nation 0

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Kevin McDermott highlights the hypocrisy:

The Biden administration has rightly vowed there will be no federal vaccine passport or vaccination requirement of any kind. The idea of a vaccine passport isn’t about government control over citizens, but business’ control over the safety of their customers. Yet the same Republicans who have argued that private businesses should be allowed to discriminate against, say, same-sex couples are suddenly all civil-rightsy when it comes to discriminating against the next potential Typhoid Mary.

In a letter to the editor of my local rag, a fourth grader nails it. Here’s a bit:

As a fourth grader, I believe it is fine to rename the places named after Confederates. One reason schools and monuments were named after Confederates was that white people during segregation wanted Black people to feel bad when they passed these places.

When I was in the fourth grade, I had neither the understanding nor the writing ability to–oh, never mind.
