Like Black Panther director Ryan Coogler, I'm a big fan of snow and ice at surprisingly low latitudes, such as the fact that there's a ski hill in Lesotho in Southern Africa. Similarly, I've spent an inordinate amount of time reading up on things like glaciers in New Guinea. So I'm pretty fired up that... Read More
From the Washington Post: She doesn't seem to have a politician's needed knack for knowing when to change the subject and answer a different question than the one asked. This ground is fraught for Warren, who claimed to be Native American for about two decades when she was a law professor. She has apologized for... Read More
"Jussie is only our second most embarrassing endorser" -- Subway executive VP of marketing.
From Crain's New York Business: If we are going to have legal drugs, I don't want highly efficient giant corporations using the magic of the market to sell a pound of Lipton brand marijuana for $24.99 at Walmart or a quarter kilo of Coca-Cola brand cocaine at Costco for $199.99, I want America served by...

Lots of guys have gotten instantly #Me-Tooed out of their careers recently. And Roseanne Barr got fired from her #1 rated TV show for not realizing Iran-born Valerie Jarrett was black. But Jussie Smollett merely dreamed up a blood libel against straight white male Trump voters, so Fox is slowly trying to figure out what... Read More
From the New York Times: What I Learned While Reporting on the Dearth of Black Mathematicians My recent reporting has highlighted why racial exclusion in “the queen of the sciences’’ may matter most of all.

From the New York Times: 2020 Democrats Embrace Race-Conscious Policies, Including Reparations By Astead W. Herndon, Feb. 21, 2019 From the very first day of the 2020 presidential race, when Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts blamed “generations of discrimination” for black families earning far less than white households, Democratic hopefuls have broadly emphasized racial justice...

Jussie Smollett's Fake Noose hate hoax probably helped get passed in the U.S. Senate last week a bill on the burning issue of making lynching a federal crime that was sponsored by Senators Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, and Tim Scott. Photos of Jussie and Kamala standing together at rallies suggest that Kamala clearly knew Jussie,... Read More
Jussie Smollett's defense will be, "Hey, it wasn't me, it was this guy right behind me who looks exactly like me." Actually, Jussie did just that when he got arrested for drunk driving in 2007: he gave his younger brother's name to the cops and got convicted of giving false information.
As I predicted in a February 15, 2019 iSteve post on the New York Times' credulous coverage of Jussie's Hate Hoax: Has J. Edgar Hoover personally taken command of the Emmett Till investigation yet? What do Democratic Presidential contenders Adlai Stevenson and Estes Kefauver have to say on this issue? I can't wait for Edward... Read More
Okay, this is like seriously weird ...
21st Century Israeli politics is always fun to read about for its Through the Looking Glass aspect. If Trump were an Israeli politician, he'd belong to the Pathetic Liberal Squish Party, along with the Israeli equivalent of Ken Burns.

From The American Conservative: Hate Hoax Fake a race crime, get a pep rally. By Steve Sailer May 10, 2004, pp. 14-15 I AM PERHAPS the world’s most easily amused person. As an old marketing researcher who enjoys looking for patterns in daily life, I’m almost never bored. Yet, while wandering the flowery campuses of... Read More
Nick Bilton writes in Vanity Fair: Despite the chaos, [Elizabeth Holmes] believed that Theranos could still be saved, and she had an unconventional plan for redemption. That September, according to the two former executives, Holmes asked her security detail and one of her drivers to escort her to the airport in her designated black Cadillac... Read More
To paraphrase Wordsworth on Milton: Something overlooked in Wolfe's reputation as an heir to depressives like Swift and Waugh as a mordant satirist is his sheer comic high spirits. The Nigerian bodybuilder bros would have cracked him up. I was hoping the Uptown neighborhood beauty supply store in this videotape was the same Korean-owned Uptown... Read More

In the London Review of Books, legendary reporter Seymour Hersh (now an octogenarian) claims that Vice President George H.W.

Gray Journalism is the opposite of Yellow Journalism: it's covering up unpalatable realities by burying the interesting facts until long after most people have stopped reading. The Gray Lady, the NYT, is the leading practitioner of Gray Journalism. For example, articles in the New York Times about anti-Semitic incidents often take just about forever to... Read More
The theory of Intersectionality -- roughly, that the more categories of Victim you can check, the more Victim Privilege you enjoy -- has been immensely influential since about 2013. It's popular with, say, black female homosexuals who want an intellectual-sounding justification for why they are Marginaler Than Thou to use on, say, straight black men... Read More
The Babylon Bee is like The Onion for Evangelical Christians (e.g., when it makes fun of overly logical male nerds, they are often depicted spouting Calvinist theological doctrines), but with less political correctness.
Jussie Smollett is basically the gay black woke Joey Tribbiani:
Juan Guaidó, the American-supported pretender to the throne of Venezuela, looks like a cross between Barack Obama and movie star James Woods.
The threatening letter to Jussie Smollett might be more in the news soon. You might imagine that grinding up some Tylenol to look like anthrax and mailing it to yourself in a hate hoax would be an amusing publicity stunt. And what's the worst that can happen? It's not like there's a law against that,... Read More
Gray Journalism is the converse of Yellow Journalism: it's intentionally making intrinsically interesting stories boring and hazy to discourage reader attention. The chief proponent of Gray Journalism is The Gray Lady, the New York Times. Here's a classic example as a seemingly interesting topic -- a surge in anti-Semitic crime, including random attacks on Jews... Read More
I had never noticed before the clear influence of Hunter S. Thompson (of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas fame) on his friend Warren Zevon before watching this acoustic version of Lawyers, Guns, and Money by Zevon and T-Bone Burnett. My favorite Warren Zevon story is 13-year-old Warren pounding on the door of Igor Stravinsky... Read More

In other words, women aren't as enthusiastic on average about doing unpaid work for newspapers by carefully crafting good letters-to-the-editor as men are. Solution: we at @NYTopinion must use our Megaphone to badger women into doing more free labor for us.
From the New York Times: New York City to Ban Discrimination Based on Hair New guidelines out this week give legal recourse to individuals who have been harassed, punished or fired because of the style of their hair. By Stacey Stowe, Feb. 18, 2019 Under new guidelines to be released this week by the New... Read More
Amy Harmon is back in the New York Times: Microaggressions. There was the time he was brushed aside by the leaders of his field when he approached with a math question at a conference. There were the reports from students in his department at Purdue University that a white professor had warned them not to... Read More
Ryan Adams' music is being #MeTooed off the radio due to allegations of his being "psychologically abusive" of his ex-wife and other women. I can't say I'll miss his songs because the only thing I know about Ryan Adams is that I'm not the only oldster to get him confused with 1980s power balladeer Bryan... Read More
From Politico: How Does a Straight White Male Democrat Run for President? Very carefully. By BILL SCHER February 17, 2019 Of the nine candidates officially running in the Democratic presidential primary, only one is a heterosexual white man. And that guy, former Rep. John Delaney, generally polls somewhere between zero and 1 percent. But of... Read More

Pain and Gain is Michael Bay's 2013 action comedy based on a true story about a bunch of patriotic muscleheads (Mark Wahlberg, Anthony Mackie, and The Rock, of whom I bet at least two voted for Trump) who attempt to pull off a plot way over their heads. Jussie Smollett watched a lot of movies.... Read More
iSteve Commenter Space Ghost observes: (By the way, I apologize for the immense number of your comments that have piled up in my moderation inbox over the last 24 hours.) On the vast NYTimes.com front page, the only mention of Jussie Smollett is this account from two days ago: 2 Men Detained in Jussie Smollett... Read More

I was driving down Sunset Boulevard when I noticed that the logo on advertising banners for a Los Angeles institution resembles an IQ test question: The message this logo sends is: If you've got a 2 digit IQ, we're not for you.     MOCA: Museum of Contemporary Art The square is an M, the...

We are finally having a rainy, cold winter in Southern California, so I'm getting into studying up on reservoir levels, such as at Lake Cachuma near Ojai. [Note: as a commenter pointed out, I'm confusing, Whooping Crane / Whooping Cough-style, Lake Cachuma near Solvang in Santa Barbara County with Lake Casitas.] That's a beautiful mountain... Read More
From The American Conservative:
From The Telegraph: It's Donna Zuckerberg's worst nightmare: more smart guys getting interested in Classics. Steps must be taken.
From The Guardian:
The editor of Esquire explains the magazine's cover story about that normal American boy that elicited so much hate: Why Your Ideological Echo Chamber Isn't Just Bad For You It's also bad for your kids. FEB 12, 2019 I have a son, a fifteen-year-old. He’s the eldest of three, with two sisters who are three... Read More
From GQ: The Racist, Homophobic Attack on Jussie Smollett Is Far-Right America's Endgame BY JOSHUA RIVERA January 29, 2019 When one of the most famous black and gay men in America is not safe, the message is clearer than it has ever been. ... Whiteness in 21st century America has an endgame, and it is... Read More
From the Los Angeles Times today: Okay, I imagine what's going on is that the cops are telling the two Nigerian bodybuilder pals of Smollett that Smollett swore out a criminal complaint, so if stay dummied up, then he's telling the truth, so they are criminals. But ... if they want to testify against Smollett... Read More
With TV actor Jussie Smollett having demonstrated that he doesn't need writers to come up with plausible plots for him, here's a rough preview of what the Empire writers today are pitching for his upcoming heartwarming goodbye in a Very Special Episode of Empire:
In the New York Times today, a classic example of how the NYT makes unwelcome stories seem boring by massaging inconvenient facts. Even though the Chicago Tribune reported on Thursday that the "persons of interest" in the Jussie Smollett purported lynching are said to be black, the NYT leaves out all mention of their race...
