Some Reads for Today

I didn't bother to post anything here yesterday not because it was Christmas but because it was hard to get on the site with this ancient computer and through that ISP provider.

I just decided to hell with it and took the day off from blogging.

I came across a few articles to post here today, like I do most days when I don't feel like going into any detail about a topic.

Of course the Rolling Stone article about the UVA rape allegations needs to be investigated. The whole issue wasn't the veracity of the woman but of the apparent journalistic malpractice committed by the reporter of the piece and the lack of fact-checking the sensational allegations.

What in the goddamned hell is the matter with cities that they would employ VOLUNTEERS in presidential motorcades? I sure as hell never, ever again want to see another Dallas, Texas, situation, to say nothing of the extreme safety risk of using somebody without any kind of security clearance.

This crap has been going on since the 1980s, even after the near-fatal attempt on President Reagan's life.

Unbelievable. This is all in order to save a few bucks.

This monopoly--and one for the UK no less--needs to be broken up. Unfortunately, our government is completely in bed with corporate interests.
