The national media has been full of stories today about the discovery of anti-Semitic graffiti at a liberal Brooklyn synagogue last evening. Well, new information has now come to light …

First, though, from the New York Times last year:

After Years in Foster Care, Intern ‘Adopted’ by City Hall Catches a Break

James Polite, 25, at his foster parents’ home in Brooklyn.

By Emily Palmer, Dec. 14, 2017

James Polite spent much of his childhood in foster care.

In high school alone, Mr. Polite estimates, he was placed in 10 different homes. And he received little encouragement from social workers to go to college.

But Mr. Polite, now 25, still believed that college was the best next step. He found encouragement as a volunteer in his teens, registering voters and canvassing neighborhoods in New York City during Barack Obama’s first presidential bid. Mentors on the campaign trail urged him to pursue higher education.

In 2008, at a gay pride rally for Mr. Obama, Mr. Polite met Christine C. Quinn, then the City Council speaker.

Ms. Quinn still remembers their introduction on the steps of City Hall. “James was telling me his story,” she recalled recently in an interview. “And I said, ‘Do you have an internship?’ And he said ‘No.’ And I said, ‘Well, you do now.’”

He interned with Ms. Quinn, a Manhattan Democrat, for several years, working on initiatives to combat hate crime, sexual assault and domestic violence. He also took part in her re-election campaign in 2009 and returned to help with her unsuccessful bid for mayor in 2013.

“James was the adopted child of the Quinn administration,” she said. “And it wasn’t just me. It was the entire City Council staff.”

He’s presumably a People Pleaser type of gay guy. There are more than a few in staff jobs in politics.

Ms. Quinn believed Mr. Polite could defy the statistics. …

Ms. Quinn wrote Mr. Polite a letter of recommendation to Brandeis University in Waltham, Mass., and followed up with a call to its president. Council staff members even drove him there on move-in day.

… But as he got older, Mr. Polite, who says he identifies as queer and does not base attraction on gender, said he felt misunderstood at home. …

After graduating from high school, Mr. Polite enrolled in a preparatory year at Brandeis. … Months before that birthday, a Brooklyn couple learned about the possibility of fostering him. The couple, Josh Waletzky and Jenny Levison, said they had wanted to foster an “L.G.B.T.Q. youth” on the brink of aging out of the system.

Josh Waletzky is “is an award-winning documentary filmmaker and also an influential proponent of Yiddish music.” Josh comes out of the secular i.e., leftist wing of Yiddish culture, but I don’t see too much evidence of Communism. His family was into the cultural tradition of Sholem Aleichem, the Fiddler on the Roof author, sending him to an Aleichem-oriented summer camp. Keeping Yiddish culture alive strikes me as a worthy and inherently conservative undertaking.

Jenny Levison is “Interim Senior Vice President of Development & Partnerships at the new Race Forward. The new Race Forward is the union of two leading racial justice non-profit organizations: Race Forward and Center for Social Inclusion (CSI).”

Children’s Aid, one of the eight beneficiary organizations of The New York Times Neediest Cases Fund, took over Mr. Polite’s case in early 2013 and facilitated the placement. Although Mr. Polite was not legally adopted — his relationship with his biological parents has improved in recent years — Ms. Levison called it a “moral adoption.” He says he considers the couple his second set of parents. …

Despite the assistance, Mr. Polite struggled at Brandeis. Smoking marijuana, he said, became a coping mechanism to manage his stress…. During treatment, he learned he had bipolar disorder, for which he is now medicated.

… Mr. Polite hopes to graduate in May with degrees in African-American studies and political science, and took two classes over the summer to stay on pace. In June, Children’s Aid used $856 from the Neediest Cases Fund for school supplies and fees not covered by his financial aid package. …

Correction: December 15, 2017
Because of an editing error, an earlier version of this article referred incompletely to the type of youth whom Josh Waletzky and Jenny Levison sought to foster. It was an “L.G.B.T.Q. youth” on the brink of aging out of the system, not merely a gay youth.

Presumably, Mr. Waletzky and/or Ms. Levison wrote in with this correction. One wonders why? Perhaps in their extremely woke social circle, it’s a major faux pas to be inclusive of just G. youths and not L., B., T. and Q. youths as well? Or who knows?

Donations to the Neediest Cases may also be made with a check or over the phone.

Screenshot 2018-11-02 19.55.11And from the New York Daily News this evening on that anti-Semitic graffiti incident at the Brooklyn synagogue:

Suspect arrested in vandalism at historic Prospect Heights synagogue, say police sources

By KERRY BURKE , MARCO POGGIO and THOMAS TRACY
| NEW YORK DAILY NEWS |
NOV 02, 2018 | 8:15 AM

A vandal who scrawled anti-Semitic graffiti in a Brooklyn synagogue and set fires around several other Jewish places of worship was arrested Friday, police sources said.

Cops committed James Polite, 26 of Bedford-Stuyvesant to the psychiatric ward at Woodhull Hospital in Brooklyn.

Is this the same James Polite as was featured in the NYT last year? I’d give over 50-50 odds that it is, but let’s keep in mind that there could be more than one James Polite in the huge city. (There’s a Rev James A. Polite Avenue in the Bronx, so presumably the Polites were an accomplished family. But perhaps this guy just read the name off a street sign and decided to go with it?)

Update: Judging from Polite’s Facebook page, which mentions Brandeis and shows him appearing to undergo a psychotic break around Halloween or the day of the crime, it’s almost certainly the same James Polite.

He is charged with criminal mischief as a hate crime and making graffiti, cops said.

The suspect was busted in the same clothes he wore in surveillance video of his vandalism at the historic Union Temple in Prospect Heights. Polite is also suspected of setting a series of small trash fires in and around synagogues in Williamsburg, police sources said.

An employee at the historic synagogue, on Eastern Parkway, found “Hitler,” “Jews better be ready” and “Die Jew rats, we are here!” written in black marker in the hallways and stairwells of the first, third and fourth floors on Thursday night, police said. …

There were also drawings of the Puerto Rican flag and the words “Free PR,” cops said.

Union Temple’s rabbi said the vandalism left him and his congregation more intent on carrying on their good works.

“We are committed, more resolved than ever to continue with our mission, and when I say ‘our mission,’ I mean our mission: love, hope, diversity, tolerance, amity, equity, community, understanding,” Rabbi Mark Sameth said. “That’s what we’re all about.”

Mayor de Blasio visited the temple on Friday night and called the incident “tremendously upsetting.”

“It’s coming at a time when Jewish New Yorkers are feeling a profound sense of loss and sadness because of what happened in Pittsburgh at the Tree of Life Synagogue and all those who were killed there because of their faith,” de Blasio said.

The discovery of the hate speech was so alarming that an event scheduled at the synagogue by “Broad City” star Ilana Glazer was canceled. …

Cops released a surveillance image of the vandal on Friday. He is described as a black man, about 20 years old, 5-foot-8, 140 pounds with black hair.

So the arrested suspect is a black, gay, Democratic activist.

They just ain’t making neo-Nazis like they used to …

Here’s a question: if this case were ripped from the headlines to furnish the basis for a Law & Order episode, what changes would the writers make? Here’s one suggestion:

Screenshot 2018-11-02 20.39.32

James Polite’s name comes up rather often in Google News, as far back as 2009 when he was quoted offering his opinion on the high price of MetroCards. He was mentioned in the UK Daily Mail in 2013, the Brandeis alumni mag in 2015, and the NYT (above) in 2017.

He’s kind of like the young black gay version of the omnipresent Man in the Street, Greg Packer, who has been quoted in the news media nearly 1,000 times.

In other words, James Polite is something of a publicity hound.

James Polite also vaguely reminds me of another New York City character, the Hug Thug, Jermaine Himmelstein, who panhandled for years in Times Square with a sign offering “Free Hugs.” But when girls turned him down, he’d punched them in the face. After dodging much punishment for a long series of attacks on young women, he finally got recorded on a security camera in Times Square punching a girl tourist from Canada, the video went viral, and for his 16th arrest he was finally sent away for a long time.

A reader points out that James Polite is also reminiscent of David Hampton, the gay black con man famously played by Will Smith in Six Degrees of Separation. From Wikipedia:

Hampton was born in Buffalo, New York and was the eldest son of an attorney. He moved to New York City in 1981 and stumbled upon his now-famous ruse in 1983 when he and another man were attempting to gain entry into Studio 54. Unable to obtain entry, Hampton’s partner decided to pose as Gregory Peck’s son while Hampton assumed the identity of Sidney Poitier’s son. They were ushered in as celebrities. Hampton began employing the persona of “David Poitier” to cadge free meals in restaurants. He also persuaded at least a dozen people into letting him stay with them and give him money, including Melanie Griffith, Gary Sinise, Calvin Klein, John Jay Iselin, the president of WNET; Osborn Elliott, the dean of the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism; Leonard Bernstein,[1] and a Manhattan urologist. He convinced some that he was an acquaintance of their children, some that he had just missed a plane to Los Angeles with his luggage still on it, and some that his belongings had been stolen.

James Polite seems rather like a Blue State version of that Filipino-Italian-Fauxcahontas male stripper in Florida, Cesar Sayoc, who was arrested for sending the letter bombs. (Has anybody determined yet if those were real bombs? Even if they weren’t, it’s still a serious crime to try to scare poor secretaries and personal assistants half to death with fake bombs.)

On the other hand, everybody around him treated Sayoc like what he was, a loser living in his van down by the river, until he became an Important Sign of Our Times due to his bomb threats.

In contrast, Polite was treated like Sidney Poitier’s son and sent off to an expensive college.

This appears to be his Facebook page under the name Abraham Aali. He appears to have gone nuts on November 1, with a friend posting, “You’re spiraling again babe take this stuff down and call me.”

    Did Mr. Impolite do this to hurt Jews or to hurt whites?

    If these acts of vandalism are meant to cast aspersions on ‘white supremacists’ and draw sympathy toward Jews, they are actually pro-Jewish and anti-white. They defame white people.

    Maybe Impolite came to hate Jews as condescending, patronizing, and more intelligent(with whom he couldn’t keep up at Brandeis). Maybe he was driven by anti-Jewish feelings.

    But maybe he was trying to make Jews look good by hate-hoaxing ‘white supremacists’.

    But then, the pro-Puerto-Rico message makes you wonder. Did he see browns as allies and Jews as rich white people?

  8. Sounds like the suspect has some mental issues, which should be taken into account.

    The most interesting part of the articles above was the couple that wanted to “foster an LGBTQ youth on the brink of aging out of the system.” I’m a selfish person, and would never do something as compassionate as raising a foster child. So I feel a bit sheepish for casting doubts on someone’s good intentions, but is it possible Mr. Waletzky was motivated by something other than compassion for wanted to foster a young adult gay man?

    It becomes A Series of Extraordinary Turns of Events: Kavanaugh Accuser Admits She Lied

    ‘I was angry and I sent it’: Left wing activist to be investigated after she admitted she MADE UP rape claims against Kavanaugh because she ‘wanted attention’
    Kavanaugh accuser Judy Munro-Leighton has recanted the claims she made to the Senate Judiciary Committee alleging the Judge raped her
    On Friday Senator Chuck Grassley referred her to the Department of Justice for investigation for making false statements
    In September Senator Kamala Harris received a letter from a Jane Doe of Oceanside, California detailing being raped by Kavanaugh
    Munro-Leighton then emailed the Committee on October 3 claiming to be that Jane Doe, after the letter was made public
    But when she was questioned on Thursday via the phone, she said she was not the author of the letter and had never met Judge Kavanaugh before
    She admitted she just wanted to ‘get attention’ and that it was a ‘tactic’ and ploy’
    When asked if she ever met the Judge she said: ‘Oh Lord, no’
    Grassley said she was decades older than Kavanaugh and was based in Kentucky

    There is reason to believe that the Nazis were actually innocent of the Reichstag fire. Also that “big lie” quote is about all the mainstream newspapers in the Anglosphere coordinating lies about Imperial Germany, to make people want to go to WWI (as Robert Graves described in his autobiography, and as numerous others observed); it wasn’t Hitler or Goebbels inexplicably telling people, “I am lying to you,” as it is bizarrely now taken to mean.

    Maybe both emotions were occurring at the same time. Having been taken care of by Jews, he wanted to do them a favor by scapegoating whites as ‘nazis’ and ‘supremacists’. After all, incidents like this build sympathy for Jews.
    But at the same time, maybe he wanted to hurt Jews because their patronizing ways made him feel small and ‘used’. Jayson Blair also said he felt ‘used’, and that’s why he burned down the ‘master’s house’. And of late, Kanye be saying he be used too, sheeeiiit.

    I still find stuff like this to be small potatoes. It’s the MSM’s lies about Syria that led to untold numbers of deaths and US proxy-support of terrorists. That is real hate and mass murder.

    There was a fluff story the other day about average breast sizes growing universally. Years ago Alex Jones reported that gay and hermaphroditic frogs were being found and the cuprit was environmental flooding with hormones. Probably the same thing which must increase our bust (and soy our boys). Jones was mocked by reporters, who didn’t know (or didn’t care) that he takes real articles and research papers, and simplifies them in order to popularize them. They called him obsessed with gay frogs.

    They are also a hate crime because the hoaxer’s acts are intended to scare the crap out of the hoaxer’s own people.

    If some rabbi paints a swastika on the doors of a synagogue, for example, he is deliberately trying to scare Jews to death based on their religion.

    Now, he may be scaring them because he wants them to donate to his favorite anti-Nazi cause (a good thing), but nonetheless, his clear intention is to scare them and intimidate them.

    No more excuses for “good” race hoaxers. It does not matter that they are “fighting the good fight deep down inside”. It does not matter that the rabbi really likes his fellow Jews and is trying to save them by getting them to donate.

    All that matters is that he deliberately scared people based upon their protected group status.

  48. @Anon

    His adoptive parents seem to have been the types to fill him in on Jewish victimhood stories, so I’m guessing he was desperate for supply to meet demand in the hate crime business.

  49. Are the two James Polites really the same person? The photos are small, but the James Polite arrested for synagogue vandalism looks as though he has darker skin than the Brandeis James Polite and his facial features look different. The ages of the two and the Brooklyn setting do mesh, however. Also the fact that the “good” James Polite admitted that he had mental problems. It’s pretty clear that he wasn’t exactly Brandeis material and was probably pushed there by Ms. Quinn and his foster parents.

    The foster parents’ involvement with Polite seems rather strange, doesn’t it? If they were prosperous Brooklynites who considered themselves Polite’s “second set of parents,” couldn’t they have afforded the $856 for his school supplies? Why was he drawing from a fund that is supposed to help New York’s “neediest” people? Something seems to be missing here.

    I added a link to the Facebook page of Abraham Aali / James Polite at the bottom of the article, which mentions he “studied at Brandeis.” He appears to suffer a psychotic break around 10/31 or 11/1, so I presume it is the guy who is under arrest for the graffiti on 11/1, because I doubt if there were two James Polites who went to Brandeis who were raving about Jews on 11/1.

    Democracy Now! is interesting because they’re a conflicted hybrid of SJW and real anti-system critiques. Given Goodman is a Jewish woman born in New York in the 50s it was inevitable she’d be highly supportive of mass migration but she does properly criticise Israel and the lobby.

    Jordan B. Peterson is right: Just stop this academic nonsense of Racial Studies and Women Studies and the like. These studies are not only doing no good but they are also doing harm – especially to troubled minds – and Peterson is right again: There are much more troubled minds out there, then people like to think because nowadays it is much underestimated how difficult it is to grow up at least halfway sane.

    And Peterson is right with this one too: It does not help to develop animosities and/or hostility towards any kind of enemies out there to develop a sane mind and stay sane.

There are, however, the Brandeis and Brooklyn connections and Aali looks much more like James Polite. Also looks gay.

    But are either the James Polite who was arrested?

    Evidence in favor: 1) The F/B postings end on 11/1, the day of the graffiti vandalism. The vandal James Polite is presumably in jail right now and can’t post on Facebook. 2) The identical ages of the two James Polites. 3) The fact that the Brandeis James Polite had severe mental problems that were clearly underplayed in the NYT “Neediest Cases” story.

    Evidence against: We have only that one photo of the vandal James Polite, taken from the rear, and I still can’t find much facial resemblance between him and either the Brandeis James Polite or Abraham Aali.

    However, when you look at the video of her attacking, you can quite plainly see she’s wearing a Nazi swastika pin on her right lapel, right below the Communist insignia. She’s ranting against Nazis while she’s wearing a swastika.

    You can see the swastika pin quite plainly at 1:18 in the video.

    This is a typical liberal in a nutshell. Selfish, bad-tempered, hysterical, attention-seeking, and crazy-rhymes-with-witch.

    Black people are worshipped in our society, because they are everything that White men are not:

    Hyper Aggressive
    Toxic levels of self confidence
    Prone to bursts of violence (far more so than White men per population group)
    Low ability to defer gratification / high impulsiveness
    Greater criminal records
    Lower cooperativeness
    Greater struggle for interpersonal dominance

    We live in a deeply feminized society. Rather than “the Joooosssss1111111!!!!!!, what was the question” what is fundamentally wrong with our society is that it is entirely based on female consumption. That is why the 1960s went rotten, after a decade of build-up of female driven consumerism through mass media particularly television. Its why Jewish dominated hard sciences are less pozzed and female dominated media/infotizing/publishing are poz central.

    Imagine a NYC run by men. For Men’s interests. Would this guy be thought of as worthy of internship, sponsorship, a scholarship to Brandeis? Heck no that scholarship would have gone to a Jewish kid, as part of the power-patronage model that Trump seeks to employ and characterized Caesar, Napoleon, de Gaulle, JFK, FDR, and most male political leaders seeking a male-driven power dynamic. I.E. sponsorship of young dudes with ambition in exchange for service to the leader.

    Now its all virtue signaling and female driven desire to show how holy they are compared to their neighbor — think Sandra Bullock or Charlize Theron accessorizing with an adopted African baby. Presumably unlike Bruno they did not trade an Ipod Red for the kid.

    The cure for all this is simple — smash media companies and consumerism. Ju-Jitsu virtue signaling by making LACK of consumption and buying things and total asceticism the mark of virtue.

    I don’t know why this guy did what he did. I don’t care. I do care that someone of such a dubious nature could constantly be promoted simply for being Black and gay; by a system that has gone insane. I could see older Democrats sponsoring a Clinton or even Obama — those dudes had some ability. This guy? Our ruling caste in their urban redoubts are totally insane.

    Thank you for your psychotic ravings. Remember to take your meds.

    The Josh Waletsky version of Yiddish cultures was expressly secular and NOT rabbinical. It grew out of the Bundist movement. Bundism was social democratic labor movement, roughly equivalent to the Labour Party in Britain – i.e. soft left and not hard left but nevertheless atheist. The European left (and not just Communists) rejected religion a long time ago, because the Leftist religion was incompatible with traditional religion – in order to embrace one you had to reject the other.

    American Bundism has pretty much literally died out, except for a handful of die hards like Waletsky. Most non- ultra religious American Jews did not teach their kids Yiddish. Yiddish now is largely in the hands of the ultra-Orthodox, who are not interested in Yiddish literature, poetry, song, etc. but this has nothing to do with the Waletsky version of Yiddish culture.

    Yes. S. Korean cuisine was strongly influenced by the US Army. Spam is a delicacy. They also make something called Army Base Stew which has a typical Korean hot pepper/kimchi/noodle base with diced up American cold cuts as the protein instead of the traditional tofu – hot dogs, bologna, sliced American cheese. There are different stories on how the Koreans would get their hands on this stuff – whether they were dumpster diving or it was somehow being diverted onto the black market or what, but the American troops were loaded with food while the Koreans were literally starving so (being a meat eating culture anyway) American cold cuts looked damn fine to them. While it began as desperation, they eventually acquired a taste for this stuff although they tended to put their own spin on it.

    I’d disagree (and I’d disagree with ad-hominems as well). The Left may have once rejected religion (well, Christianity at any rate), but that was in the days of people actually worrying about terms and conditions for working class people. They’ve since discovered that in a post-Christian society, religious instincts and behaviours (which don’t disappear when formal observance disappears) – taboo, blasphemy, shaming, casting out – are actually really useful to modern leftists (who only care about race, gender and sexuality, not boring stuff like men’s pay).

    In the ongoing struggle for the UK Labour Party someone got upset a year or so back because a Corbyn ally had published something they disagreed with “on Holocaust Memorial Day!”.

    I am delighted to learn that my alma mater is still ruthlessly shedding the “high fliers” from useless high schools whom they are required to accept if their “grade-point” average (what a useless instrument for determining anybody’s real potential) reaches a pre-determined level.

    There is an amusing photo of poor Kashawn at Berkeley, ominously surrounded by sceptical if good-humoured Asians. What slaughter must have ensued (and I do feel sorry for him; his “stellar” performance in high school was an engineered lie dooming him to disappointment) during the subsequent weeks.

    But it was ever thus. I arrived at Berkeley in 1967 and it was common knowledge that remaining would not be as easy as getting in had been.

    Two acquaintances arrived a year after me: both had been publicly educated, but at Los Gatos High, a place light-years away from poor Kashawn’s ghetto establishment. The student body was entirely white, and overwhelmingly middle class and higher. Both had “shone” during their four years there – one as an all-rounder, the other as a nerd of nerds type.

    Both were expected to shine equally brightly at Berkeley and both lasted less than a year. The all-rounder shrugged it off, while the poor nerd had a nervous breakdown.

    Thus did Berkeley keep its reputation: the nerds and the all-rounders have, like moths, never ceased chancing the all-consuming flame.

    This doesn’t detract from the fact that that the Left derives from the anti-religious bent of the Enlightenment. Chesterton didn’t actually say The first effect of not believing in God is to believe in anything but he might as well have.

    In the Jewish case many Jews tended to jump on the Enlightenment train because it coincided with a (rather justified, in my view) revolt against the overweening and obscurantist Rabbinical authority of the time, which a large portion of the Jews then tend to confound with all religious authority, which is a foolish position but, as it is largely unexamined, understandable. This anti-rabbinical war is the milieu from which, for example, Ron Unz and Israel Shahak come, though they’re a little late to the party.

    When subjugated blacks behaved in Rhodesia but when Christian missionaries pumped them full of how equal they were to whites they became terrorists.

    Just human nature, though had the Blacks really been equal to whites in intelligence and future time orientation they would have creatively and relatively bloodlessly disencumbered themselves or else slaughtered the whites outright, but then built an equal society. That has never happened. The Haitians slaughtered the whites well enough, but descended into a societal fecal impaction in short order.

    Or saying it another way: The dog that bites the hand that feeds it will lick the hand that beats it!

    Tally ho!

    Some dogs will bite anybody regardless of how they are treated. Those are dealt with best with a properly placed round of whatever is handy. They have been bred out

    But many dogs just need to be dominated correctly and will then behave.

    Most mutts are decent pets but not good as working dogs. Buy a properly bred hunting, working or other specialized breed and it will do what it is supposed to, but many breeds have limitations that you need to understand before getting one. Steve has talked about Newfoundlands pulling people out of swimming pools , I think. And a chow dog is never safe around strangers who take liberties with it.

    Of course, when I grew up, you were taught that if a dog bit you it was your fault if you went near it or tried to pet it. A bite might mean an ass whipping from Dad as well, so you avoided strange dogs.

    A little different, but that initial article about the kid reminded me of Kashawn Campbell, the incredibly gifted black kid who got into US Berkeley, and immediately flunked out. Everyone was baffled. Such a promising young man.

    Sorry, can’t help you with your conditioner clump. I am too busy explaining The Critique of Pure Reason to my dog. She is a labradoodle and quite bright but I cannot get her to grasp the distinction between analytic and synthetic judgments no matter how many times I explain it to her. She just tilts her head and looks at me funny.

    Let us hope that you are right, and you may well be.

    Amazing.

    Incidentally, for those unaware, Christine Quinn is a qualified lesbian.

    It’s not enough for a political candidate to be a lesbian – they have to be a qualified lesbian – it makes sense (victims with qualifications).

    To be fair, that’s not what the article said. It pretty much blamed mental illness, which still relieves Polite of any element of agency. Even when blacks are not the direct victims of racists (not too many KKK members at Brandeis or in Brooklyn so it’s hard to construct a credible narrative even by the standards of the NYT) they are always the victim of unfortunate circumstances and are therefore never responsible for their own actions.

    In the article, Quinn admits that as his mental illness got worse so did his anti-Semitism, so it was obviously well known to her even before this incident.

    I’m sure that if the graffiti writer/ fire setter had been white the Times would have been equally sympathetic to their mental illness.

  201. If I follow things correctly, this thing was twenty-five years old when it met the lady who later gave it an internship, and later still helped it into college, then, sometime during its time at college, this outfit asked with helping the “Neediest Children” gave the creature almost nine hundred dollars.

    It was perhaps twenty-six or twenty-seven by then: by what tortured reasoning was it a child? We’re all of the actual children already so well off the outfit had surplus resources to give to grown men? (I’m skeptical that is the case.)

    I’m unsure when it began, but the preposterous idea persons in their twenties who vote – they run the place; think of it! – are children needs to stop.

    Budae jjiggae. Ugh. Couldn’t stand that stuff, as a kid and now. Loved everything else about Korea (as does pretty much everybody in SEA these days-Korea this, Korea that all over the place), food included, just not that one, ironically enough.

    My grandfather didn’t talk much about his time in Korea, but according to my mother, from the few times he did, I would go with the dumpster diving thesis. Starvation is a powerful muse: it’ll either kick in a will to survive with corresponding levels of lack of hangups, creativity and ruthlessness that you never thought existed, or the polar opposite impulse to die, ASAP. There’s something very active about the apathy in the latter. Probably evolutionary instincts at work.

    That’s wierd, my impression has been that dogs start with a perfect understanding of Kant. Their daily routine is constant. Their morality is rigid and relies on fairness rather than the situation. And it sounds like they speak German.

    I’ve heard of other cases of blacks in their mid-20s who pretend to be younger to get money to attend school. They often have mental issues. In one case I read about a long time ago, an African American woman in her 20s was pretending to be 10 years younger to attend high school in between mental illness episodes. She seemed to find attending high school, where she was a hardworking, cooperative student, to be self-therapy for her.

    Rosner grew up in Boulder, Colorado.[12] He reportedly spent 10 years in high school, leaving in 1987.[13] Rosner began working on a theory of everything around age 21, and had returned to high school at age 26 in order to have “one of those desk-chair combinations” in a quiet place to think about how the theory might work, drawing a comparison in an interview to Albert Einstein’s Swiss patent office.[14]

    Steve, I just figured it out.

    Forget the prison-industrial complex. Forget sending them off to war. To get rid of troublesome people, just create virtual high school simulations for them to stay in.

    You may now thank me.

    If they were prosperous Brooklynites who considered themselves Polite’s “second set of parents,” couldn’t they have afforded the $856 for his school supplies?

    They’re of a certain, er, culture, that won’t hesitate to take the free money, without regard to the potentially legitimately needy person to whom they are denying it.
