From CBS58 in Milwaukee, as Wisconsin answers Minnesota’s challenge for the lead in the 2021 iSteve content generator run for the roses:

More than 300 gunshots ring out at Midtown Center in Milwaukee; 2 injured
By: Victor Jacobo Twitter

Posted: May 3, 2021 5:03 AM CDT

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – Milwaukee police are investigating a double shooting that happened on Sunday, May 2 around 11:30 p.m. near Midtown Center at 60th and Capitol. The victims, a 23-year-old and a 21-year-old, were taken to a hospital for treatment.

Acting Milwaukee Police Chief Jeffrey Norman said more than 300 gun shots were fired at the scene, which video on social media showed as crowded with young people in cars playing music, dancing and socializing. The location is often referred to as ‘Club Midtown’ because of the gatherings.

Acting Chief Norman said the amount of shots fired in a span of minutes is unlike anything he has investigated before.

“I have had my fair share of investigations, large investigations, as a former homicide detective, former homicide supervisor, a former district commander,” Norman told reporters in a video conference. “I have never seen something like this before in this context.”

Norman said he is concerned about the uptick in violence as the summer approaches.

“We’re not even to memorial day weekend which is usually is sometimes unfortunately for us the start of unfortunate incidents,” Norman said.

The shooting happened Milwaukee Common Council President Cavalier Johnson’s district.

“It was insane. It was crazy. I have never ever heard that many gunshots, ever,” said Johnson. “I’ve lived [in] this city my entire life and I lived in some of the most depressed neighborhoods in Milwaukee, and I have never heard that amount of gunfire in one fell swoop over the course of several minutes.”

In Los Angeles over the last 20 years, we’ve pretty much succeeded at persuading drunk Mexicans to celebrate by firing illegal fireworks into the air rather than by shooting their pistols into air like they used to on New Year’s Eve and the Fourth of July. LAPD cops on patrol always used to pull their vehicles under freeway overpasses from 11:55pm to 12:10am on New Year’s Eve in order to not get killed by falling bullets.

It took a lot of Spanish language public service announcements and the LAPD shooting dead some drunks for shooting their pistolas, but this campaign has more or less improved the Mexican culture in Los Angeles. In the place of blasting away like El Guapo, L.A.’s Mexicans now buy tens or perhaps hundreds of millions of dollars of fireworks in Nevada and shoot them off back home in Van Nuys in a Fourth of July barrage that was non-stop for seven straight hours last year. Consequences included an apartment building burning down, a brushfire, and a lot of dogs having a really bad night, but nobody was killed.

Maybe black cities like Milwaukee need campaigns to persuade African-Americans that instead of expressing anger, exuberance, a pocketful of Bidenbux, or whatever else they are feeling at the moment by firing their handguns in the general direction of somebody they don’t like and probably wounding somebody else just standing around twerking, they should instead fire their guns straight up into the air to communicate the important message: I Have a Gun.

And when that cultural engineering is finally successful, we can then spend the next 20 years persuading Milwaukee blacks to not bring guns to social events but to bring fireworks instead.

    Bruce Pofahl had some issues with a female employee that got him fired from the casino earlier this year.

    He returned over the weekend, apparently to kill someone in particular. But they weren’t there when he showed up, so he shot 3 friends of the target. 2 died, one in serious condition.

    Good aim I guess but he didn’t even case the place or determine whether the target was there…so…

    Haven’t heard it in a while, but at good ranges the phrase “police your brass” is common. There are most often brooms and buckets for brass cases (don’t put the steel crap in there, please). And in this case the dynamic youths probably left behind 300 cases for the police to document. That’s a lot of those little plastic evidence markers they use… Wonder if they ran out?

    This “Foundational Black American” stuff is kinda interesting:

    THE 3 STARS
    Represents the 3 groups who make up the ethnic group that would become Foundational Black Americans:

    *The Black aboriginal people of North America

    *The Black explorers and traders who had contact with the Americas before Columbus

    *The captives brought to the Western Hemisphere from Africa

    THE FIST
    Represents the non-stop fight that Foundational Black Americans have engaged in against white supremacy. This battle began on this land in 1526

    1526, eh? Well, that fives you priority over the 1619 crowd…..

    THE OLIVE BRANCHES
    Represents the historic camaraderie and peace between the Black skinned aboriginal and the Black captives on this land

    “Black skinned aboriginal?” Are they implying that Blacks were present in the New World pre-1492?

    THE WHITE BACKGROUND
    Represents the system of white supremacy being a constant threat, and the activity on top represents Foundational Black Americans never surrendering to white supremacy

    THE RED, WHITE AND BLUE COLOR SCHEME
    Pays homage to the Foundational Black American teen girl Grace Wisher who helped craft the current United States Flag

    THE 9 RED STRIPES
    Represents the 9 significant slave rebellions the shaped policies on this land:

    1.San Miguel de Gualdape-1526

    2. New York Slave Revolt-1712

    3. Chesapeake Rebellion-1730

    4. Stono Rebellion-1739

    5. Gabriel Prosser Rebellion-1800

    6. German Coast Uprising-1811

    7. Denmark Vesey’s Rebellion-1822

    8. Nat Turner’s Rebellion-1831

    9. The Black Seminole Maroon Wars-1816 to 1842*

    *(This successful rebellion is commonly hidden, and that’s why one of the red stripes on the flag is hidden behind the Black power fist)

    WHO IS FOUNDATIONAL BLACK AMERICAN & WHO IS NOT?

    A Foundational Black American is any person classified as Black, who can trace their bloodline lineage back to the American system of slavery. To be designated as a FBA, at least one parent must come from a non-immigrant background in The United States of America.

    If a person’s matrilineal and patrilineal lineage traces back to slavery in the Caribbean, then they are not considered a Foundational Black American.

    Hey, working against the BIPOC narrative there…..

    Hmm. Have Tariq Nasheed and Tiny Duck ever been seen in the same room at the same time?

  23. Mexicans love explosions. And brass bands. If there’s a feast day (and every part of Mexico has their own particular patron saints so you never know when you’re going to wander into a massive party when you travel about the place) they’re going to blow things up, and march around blaring brass instruments, pounding on drums and carrying torches all night long. It’s amusing, even a bit charming, but it can sometimes make it difficult to get a good night’s sleep.

    The big national feast is that of Our Lady of Guadalupe on December 12th. The feast of Saint Nicholas is on the 6th, the Immaculate Conception is the 8th, St. Juan Diego is the 9th, and St. Lucy is the 13th.. So that week in Advent it’s basically like a war zone in most of Mexico. If you like fireworks and frayed nerves, that’s the time to go.

    I shot this video a decade ago on December 12th in San Christobal de las Casas down in Chiapas, where they run a line of black powder lined with firecrackers from the central piazza down the middle of one the main thoroughfares out to one of the churches on the edge of the city, and then touch a match to it :

    This short clip was taken around midnight that same day – the entire city is one gigantic spontaneous parade for roughly that entire week:

  28. Hitting something was not his primary consideration.

    In 1995, some nutcase in a trench coat got off a bus at the Minneapolis-St Paul with a rifle and proceeded to shoot up baggage claim. He also wasn’t aiming at anybody, just taking it out on the walls. This sticks in my mind because I had just rescheduled a flight and would have ridden that very bus with him. Instead, my mother and stepfather flew in and had just missed him.

    This same fellow had been arrested a year or two earlier for sneaking out onto the tarmac and fooling around. You could still do that then.

    Has any serious researcher ever interviewed some of these black shooters to ask them WHY they do it? My guess is as good as yours.

Why can’t some real social scientist ASK a hundred of them: what are you thinking and/or feeling when you choose to do that?

    Black physicist rethinks the ‘dark’ in dark matter

    Her book chapters — including “The Physics of Melanin,” “Black People Are Luminous Matter” and “The Anti-Patriarchy Agender” — show her focus “at the intersection of astrophysics and particle physics” and at the intersection of physics and Black feminist thought and anti-colonial theory.

    Women and people of color, she notes, are routinely left out of histories of science, despite their important role in the progress that White men are credited with making.

    The way that students of physics typically learn the history of the field is through anecdotes that their professors told them during class and through anecdotes that are littered throughout their textbooks. But Black people have our own community historians, like Dr. Jami Valentine Miller, the first African American woman to earn a doctorate in physics from Johns Hopkins University. She runs African American Women in Physics and has been keeping track of Black women who have a doctorate in physics and related areas. A lot of these stories get transferred through oral communication, even if no one has been given the opportunity to write it up for a publication.

    The Christian Post: Biden changes plans on refugee cap after swift condemnation from progressives, Christian groups

    Christian groups strongly condemned the Biden administration Friday after it was announced that he would maintain the refugee resettlement cap at 15,000 people, matching former President Donald Trump’s historically low admissions goal and going back on his promise to raise the number to 125,000.
    […]
    “Rhetoric is no refuge for the persecuted — we need action,” said Russell Moore, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention.

    The ceiling, Moore added, “should be raised immediately so our nation can welcome those we already vetted.”
    […]
    Gabriel Salguero, president of the National Latino Evangelical Coalition, said evangelical Christians’ commitment to refugees “is rooted in the biblical belief that each of these individuals is a person made in the image of God with inherent dignity, whose lives are worth protecting.”

    Christianity Today: How Evangelicals Pushed Back on Biden’s Refugee Reversal

    Evangelical advocates played a crucial role in holding President Joe Biden accountable to a promise to raise the limits for refugees coming to America.

    Catholic News Agency: Biden raises refugee admissions cap to 62,500

    Bill Canny, executive director of the U.S. bishops’ conference (USCCB) migration committee, told CNA on April 14 that he was “absolutely” disappointed with refugee admissions and added that he was “very disturbed that without a presidential determination, refugee resettlement has effectively been halted.”
    […]
    The chair of the U.S. bishops’ migration committee – Bishop Mario Dorsonville, auxiliary bishop of Washington, D.C. – said on April 19 that the cap of 15,000 was “far short of what we can do as a country,” adding that he expected the administration to raise the cap as promised. He pushed for the administration to retool the refugee admissions program with the goal of eventually resettling 125,000 refugees.

    HIAS was established in the late 1800s with a mission to help Jewish immigrants (mainly to the USA).

    That sort of rescue is no longer relevant, so HIAS re-missioned itself into a left-wing, universalist, pro-immigration group.

    Nowadays the only thing Jewish about HIAS is the shrimp and lobster sauce it serves at board meetings.

    Man bit off parts of couple’s ears during attack: prosecutors

    The Sun-Times quotes the judge as saying the allegations “shocks the conscious.”

    No description of the perpetrator.

    [MORE]

    A man attacked a couple in Fernwood over the weekend, biting off parts of their ears.

    And when officers arrested him, he allegedly told them the blood he was covered in was not his but the “blood of peasants,” Cook County prosecutors said.

    After listening to the allegations against 28-year-old Elijah Rule Hill Prince Monday, Judge John F. Lyke Jr. said he thought he was “listening to a horror movie.”

    Rule Hill Prince, who is undergoing a psychiatric examination at a hospital, was not present at his bond hearing on aggravated battery and attempted murder charges.

    Rule Hill Prince first attacked his male victim Saturday in the 10500 block of South Emerald Avenue after he tried selling the man something and the man refused the offer, prosecutors said.

    Rule Hill Prince allegedly put the man in a chokehold and then hit the man in the head with the shovel the man had been using to clean the alley behind his mother-in-law’s home.

    Rule Hill Prince went on to punch the man in the face, gouge his eyes with his fingers, bite his ears and the top of his head before spitting into the man’s mouth, prosecutors said.

    At one point, Rule Hill Prince stuffed a three-inch block — an object similar to a door step — into the victim’s left eye, prosecutors said.

    Upon hearing the commotion, the man’s wife ran outside and was allegedly attacked by Rule Hill Prince who started by pulling her hair and gouging her eyes with his finger. He also bit her ears, ripping off “large chunks,” and spitting on her, prosecutors said. After the woman fell to the ground, Rule Hill Prince allegedly kicked her head multiple times.

    The woman’s husband called 911 after he pulled the wooden object out of his eye. But Rule Hill Prince ran off after a witness came outside and yelled at him, prosecutors said. He was arrested nearby a short time later. Rule Hill Prince’s mouth, face and elbows of his jackets were covered in blood, prosecutors said.

    The couple were taken to a hospital in serious condition.

    Pieces of the couple’s ears were recovered in the alley but could not be reattached, prosecutors said. The block of wood was also recovered at the crime scene.

    The woman, who is missing parts of both ears, suffered two black eyes, bruising to her face and head as well as lacerations, prosecutors said.

    Her husband suffered a broken orbital bone, a cut on his head and numerous abrasions on his face. He also has missing a piece of an ear and suffers from impaired vision due to the attack, prosecutors said.

She suggested DAS, Descendants of American Slaves to fix the problem. Paying attention to sentence diagramming in middle school might have prevented this.

    Jewish News, 2014-05-29:

    Manchester United mourn Malcolm Glazer

    “The news was announced earlier on the official website of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the NFL franchise he acquired ownership of in 1995.

    “Malcolm leaves behind his wife Linda, six children and 14 grandchildren. Staff at Manchester United extend deep and sincere condolences to them all at this difficult time.”

    Tampa Bay paid tribute to New York-born Glazer as a “pioneering thinker” and a “dynamic business leader”, with the club achieving seven play-off berths, five play-off victories and their only Super Bowl triumph 12 years ago following his takeover in 1995.

    He came to attention on these shores with his acquisition of United nine years ago, using loans against the club’s assets to finance his takeover, which totalled almost £800million.

    Today:

    United against the Glazers: How long-running resentment from Man Utd fans reached boiling point against billionaire US owners

    Then in 2014, Malcolm Glazer dies at the age of 85. Shortly afterwards, the Glazer family made $200 million selling shares in the now publicly listed football club, adding to the $75 million made in the same manner the year prior. Again, the furious fanbase was powerless – and the Glazer family vowed that they wouldn’t consider selling the club for at least five years, regardless of the overwhelming sentiment from supporters.

    Remarkably, an investigation by The Guardian concluded that well over £1 billion has been removed from the club’s bank account since the Glazer’s debt was placed on the club in 2005, due to the accrual of interest and other assorted fees. The total debt associated with the club stands at over £450 million as of March of this year.

    There is nothing better in life than “debt leveraging”.

    And this is the issue. The Glazers view the Manchester United as a completely different entity to its supporters. The perception is that for the owners, the world’s most famous club is a financial asset – a piggy bank from which to shake out coins, hopefully without having to use a hammer to smash it. It is a franchise. It is a sports entertainment brand.

    To fans, it is more than just a football club: it is an identity, and not a commodity. And unlike the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, you can’t buy off the fanbase with shiny new toys. But for now, one suspects that the Glazer family are more than content in keeping their financial interests tied to a club they probably won’t be able to ever visit in their lifetimes.

    Long Island man dodges eviction for 20 years, living in house he doesn’t own

    Guramrit Hanspal has only made one mortgage payment while living in a 2,081-square-foot East Meadow home in Long Island since 1998.

    Hanspal, who had an initial 7.375 percent interest rate on the $232,000 adjustable-rate mortgage, likely saved himself upwards of $440,000 by not paying his bills.

    Hanspal got the mortgage from Washington Mutual in 1998 and made exactly one payment — $1,602.37 — before defaulting, prompting the bank to begin foreclosure proceedings a year later, court records show.

    By May 2000, Washington Mutual successfully foreclosed on the home, and Hanspal was “forever barred” from any claim to the property, according to the judgment of foreclosure.

    But Hanspal never left. By January 2001, he filed his first bankruptcy claim, records show. He went on to file another in November 2001, two in 2002 and one in 2003.

    If bankruptcy filings didn’t work, Hanspal simply went to state court seeking relief, sometimes acting as his own attorney, according to an August 2005 order from Nassau County Judge Burton S. Joseph.

    Meanwhile, in 2004, Hanspal transferred the deed of the home to a friend, Rajender Pal, even though he had no legal right to do so, according to court papers. Pal, using the Kenmore Street address, filed for bankruptcy in 2005, staving off eviction yet again.

    Weird oracular womens’ pronouncements will tell us the Truth About The Universe and Our Place In It. It has ever been thus. Even in The Matrix.

    CNN: You note that White people sometimes find the term “dark matter” scary and foreboding [Huh?], and that for terms like that and others, “a Black feminist physicist working in the 1960s would never have used this language.” [Huh?] How would such terms be different if scientists had been and were now a more diverse group?

    Prescod-Weinstein: My biggest pet peeve around the phrase “dark matter” is that it’s not a good name for it, because it misrepresents the properties of the thing. It’s not dark; it’s actually invisible.

    So according to the tenets of intersectional renaming it should be renamed “Floyd Matter” because Floyd is invisible until a police encounter happens at an intersection. We will also rename the “Black Holes Have No Hair” theorem to … I won’t go into this.

    What about “Axions”, which is the speciality of Miss Prescod-Weinstein? I hope it’s clear that name comes literally from Axion Dish Soap. How patriarchic is that?

    CNN: You talk about making the “night sky accessible” to all children. What does that mean to you?

    Prescod-Weinstein: It starts with a very simple question: How do we create the conditions so that every child has access to a dark night sky and the opportunity to sit and wonder underneath it? It has very deep implications, because that requires thinking about public transportation and how people get access to dark night skies.

    Buses have been invented some time ago.

    It requires thinking about pollution and whether dark night skies continue to be possible.

    I can get behind that.

    And it has to do with thinking about patriarchy: making it safe to be out under a darkening sky.

    Well, God Willing. the invasive species of the Shooting Negro and his cousin the Stabbing Negro will be kept out of parks, national or otherwise for the foreseeable future. Otherwise one will have to import the good guys guarding Kruger Park. They are hardcore.

    It has to do with making sure that parents aren’t working 80-hour weeks because their jobs don’t pay a living wage. It’s about making sure that everyone has access to good health care, to clean water, to food, because it is hard to just enjoy and wonder when you are either being poisoned or when you are hungry.

    I suppose all of these things will go away when patriarchy has ended. And with a bit of Bidenbux. And more immigration.

    Hi Craig, that’s a load of bollocks – the question is whether a falling bullet reaches a velocity sufficient to cause injury, but apparently it does, see here or possibly here, although the latter is paywalled and I can’t read it. But it’s referenced in the former:

    Bullets fired into the air during celebrations return at a speed fast enough to penetrate the skin and cause internal damage to other organs in the path of the migrating bullet. The bullet’s velocity required for skin penetration
    is between 148 and 197 feet per second. A velocity of less than 200 feet per second, which is easily obtained by a
    celebratory gunfire, is capable of fracturing bone and even causing intracranial penetration [4]. Spent bullets
    have the capability of reaching up to 600 feet per second during their downfall, and thus they have the ability to
    inflict damage to multiple body cavities [4]. The larger caliber bullets (ie, .45-caliber) reach a higher terminal
    velocity compared with the smaller caliber bullets (ie, .30-caliber), because of the proportion of their weight to their diameter [4]. Terminal velocity is difficult to calculate with falling bullets because wind resistance and updrafts can cause a spent bullet to land miles away from the initially fired site [2].

    I remained this as being false from an old episode of Mythbusters, but either I remembered it wrong or I shouldn’t have been listening to a TV show in the first place.

    I’m still a little skeptical, though, for two reasons: firstly, while it makes sense that a higher calibre bullet will have greater mass and thus attain greater velocity over the same fall, it also makes sense that the higher calibre bullet won’t rise as high in the first place, and thus won’t be falling so far.

    Secondly, I wonder how many people claiming to be injured by falling bullets are lying because snitches get stiches?

    That is the crux of the matter.

    Manchester United had been debt free since 1931, and when the Glazers obtained a majority of the club’s stock, they bought it with borrowed money which they then loaded onto the club, sharply increased the price of season tickets, and started paying themselves dividends.

    They also engaged in other financial chicanery such as charging season ticket holders to their credit cards for other games that they did not wish to buy tickets for.

    Manchester United has a global TV fan base, but pissing off fans in Manchester undermines the ethos of the club.

    Had the Glazers also brought success on the field of play with victories in the English Premier League and European Super League, then all might have been forgiven, but they get the impression of being perfectly satisfied to be perpetual bridesmaids and unwilling to buy superstars to bring back the glory days when the young Cristiano Ronaldo was propelling Manchester United to continental success under the serial winning manager Sir Alex Ferguson (retired).

    So now the fans are burning down the club.

    You can hardly underestimate the importance of soccer clubs, or really any sports team, in the life of fans.

    My family relocated to Yorkshire in 1962, and that same year I was taken to see Leeds United, a fairly obscure second division team at the time.

    Playing that day were a number of promising young players in their late teens and early twenties.

    Over the next 15 years Leeds United became a major power in English and European soccer, with those same young players I saw as the core of the team for a decade and more.

    Leeds United became a central theme and topic of conversation in my family over those years. Even two of my sisters had season tickets, had their bedroom walls covered with pinups of the players, kept scrapbooks of every match report newspaper clipping, and collected autographs.

    The team were like family.

    One of my sisters became so enamored of the game that after medical school she later became a soccer mom to two daughters, founded a team which she coached and a league, won every trophy in the area, and later one of my nieces played for England in the European championship and Olympic games.

    Three of the players whom I saw that cold night in 1962 (one of the coldest winters on record in England) died within the last year, one from Covid-19, one from dementia, and the other from, I believe, liver disease. We cried when they died, remembering what they had been and what they had meant to us.

    My soccer-loving sister also died recently, so we cried some more.

    Being a sports fan is more than a game, more than a business, it is a way of life, and those who are fortunate enough to own teams have a responsibility to everyone associated with the team, players, fans, and shareholders to bring as much success and joy into their lives as possible. At least that is the way fans see it in the UK, and I imagine it is the same in the US.

    That is why fans are demanding removal of the Glazers whose position has become untenable. They will get offers no doubt. Prince Mohammed Bin Salman is reportedly preparing a bid, have reportedly had two offers declined in the past.

    Except for air resistance. From this link.
    https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2011/03/can-falling-bullets-kill-you.html

    the experimental results are mixed. Hatcher calculated that his .30-caliber rifle bullets reached terminal velocity—the speed at which air resistance balances the accelerating force of gravity—at 300 feet per second. You might die from a bullet moving at that speed, but it’s unlikely. Lighter bullets, like those fired from a 9mm handgun, max out at even lower speeds, between 150 and 250 feet per second, according to computer models.

    I am glad someone brought this point up. Just as with the supposed Galileo acceleration experiment off the leaning Tower of Pisa*, anyone who claims this same speed business is forgetting about air resistance.

    It’s not my field, Res, but I am sure the tumbling of the bullet is what will set the terminal velocity. Even this supposed “terminal” velocity could change somewhat if the tumbling slows. Tumbling will begin as the off axis rotational momentum is enough to overcome the stability from the rifle spin and the aerodynamics. This spin will slow due to air drag, and that’s got to depend on the initial spin rate, the diameter, and especially the surface of the bullet. Imagine a lead one with creases or indentations made during firing or manufacturing vs. a jacketed one.

    Then the time to slow said spin down due to air drag is a function of how long the bullet stays in the air. Like a lot of REAL engineering problems, not the basic ones you do in college Physics to get the principles, and not the n0-theory pseudo-engineering stuff done by the two guys on Mythbusters**, it can get complicated in a hurry. (I’m not even saying there is unknown theory in there – just a lot of factors that require a lot of data – the bullet surface, air properties, then the mass properties of the bullet for the aerodynamics, etc.)

    .

    * I’d read this never happened, but OTOH, it’s about the thought experiment anyway.

    https://www.researchgate.net/publication/324625047_Real-world_small_arms_ballistics_Hatcher’s_Notebook

    In the text Hatcher’s experimental methodology is explained in adequate detail. The excerpt from Slate has to do with firing rifles at an angle of 90 degrees, i.e. straight up. That’s why the terminal velocity is relatively low compared to the initial firing velocity. In the first order case it is a calculus problem, but Hatcher’s empirical approach cannot be argued with; he actually caught some of the bullets fired and recorded the impact effects on wood. Shoot straight upwards, catch bullet when it arrives back down – empirical win.

    Firing angles of 60, 45 and 30 degrees produce very different results, with more momentum retained downrange. When people get injured or killed by stray rounds, typically those were fired at low angles such as 30 degrees. Given the stupidity involved in firing blindly into the air, it should not surprise that many such bozos don’t shoot directly upwards, but at an angle such as 45 degrees.

    Melinda, a Catholic,[12][13][14][15] attended St. Monica Catholic School, where she was the top student in her class.[16][17] At age 14, Melinda was introduced to the Apple II by her father, and a school teacher named Mrs. Bauer who advocated teaching the students at the all-girls school computer science.[18] It was from this experience she developed her interest in computer games and the BASIC programming language.[19]

    Melinda graduated as valedictorian from Ursuline Academy of Dallas in 1982.[20] She earned a bachelor’s degree in computer science and economics from Duke University in 1986 and an MBA from Duke’s Fuqua School of Business in 1987.[21] At Duke, Melinda was a member of the Kappa Alpha Theta sorority, Beta Rho Chapter.[22]

Whatefer the number, I’m sure they’re all violent recidivist criminals who should have been in prison rather than free to terrorize scores of people but wound only two. And the taxpayers, virtually all whites, will pay thousands of dollars for their surgery and ambulance trip to the hospital. If the 21-and 23-year-old were criminals, I’m sure they’ll commit more crimes after they full recover from their wounds and return to the inner-city streets.

    Who cares about their stupid rockets.

    I get Facebook ads for products sold directly from China. Some of them look pretty cool, for example, a Rubick’s Cube that you scramble and then it automatically resets itself with an internal electronic mechanism. I thought my son would enjoy that as a gag Christmas present and ordered it in mid-October. Early in January, it arrived. It was about 2.5″ square, arrived with some of the panels already broken off, and contained no internal mechanism. It was just garbage.

    Obviously there is no recourse, no getting your money back.

    Maybe black cities like Milwaukee need campaigns to persuade African-Americans that instead of expressing anger, exuberance, a pocketful of Bidenbux, or whatever else they are feeling at the moment by firing their handguns in the general direction of somebody they don’t like and probably wounding somebody else just standing around twerking, they should instead fire their guns straight up into the air to communicate the important message: I Have a Gun.

    And when that cultural engineering is finally successful, we can then spend the next 20 years persuading Milwaukee blacks to not bring guns to social events but to bring fireworks instead.

    Unfortunately, the only cultural engineering we are currently experiencing has as its intention to make me feel more comfortable about my future reparations payments.

    /no one has been given the opportunity to write it up for a publication./

    Was struck by the note of wistfulness there. She doesn’t sound resentful or mad. She would like for there to be an opportunity, but no one has been given the opportunity. The opportunities are in the gift of people who are giving them to others.

    She doesn’t entertain the thought of making an opportunity, or seeking one.

    Makes me think perhaps Tariq and Ibram and Tennessee genuinely do believe that they are victims of “systemic racism”. (Which I had doubted.) What other explanation could there possibly be for their complaints in life?

    –And are there any physics journals which publish anecdotal/oral histories of physics? Because this sounds more like a subject for ethnology or folklore, and there probably is an opportunity there somewhere.

    Yeah I was a day off and thanks for pointing that out, but I am well aware of the Grito de Dolores. The greasers have a parade in my city on Mexican Independence Day and, unlike Huntington Beach, there is no parade on the Fourth of July, because there are no gabachos left in town.

    It’s a real holiday. Mexicans have told me it used to be mainly a thing in Puebla, which makes sense; it was their famous fight. But I suspect it became a thing in the US partly due to homesick Mexican illegals. Then hipster gringos took it up because reasons.

    I have seen this here in Portland, Oregon too. Most of the private flags vanished after 2017, not all of a sudden. I think some “leading edge” folks decided to take it down and it became fashionable. But I have not yet seen them return. I think as we progress through Memorial, Independence, Labor days, they may slowly return.

    My guess is Melinda was a nice wife but not an intellectual equal to Bill. Now, that their children are all grown up, I think they grew apart. Melinda might have felt like a third wheel on the Bill – Ann bike and decided on a friendly disentanglement. I think this may also be the story behind Prince Charles: Princess Diana described their marriage as “a bit too crowded” right from the start.

    I love the idea that the whole of the physical sciences are handed down as an oral tradition, which seems to be the only way she can think about it. What would the physics oral history of creole slaves be like?

    God help us all…

    Yes, oral tradition isn’t the best method for preserving complex notions. Talk about signal degradation. In Africa there was (is?) the griot, a dude whose job it was to transmit data down the ages. Or so I learned in AFAM classes many years ago. I recall that they dug a lot of yams from the ground.

    Looks like it was a wide angle lens.

    Wouldn’t that suggest that there was more distance between Joe and Tiny Old Lady Carter than we suppose, though?

    Eyeballing the picture, we can see Joe’s foot level with that chair leg, but his hand is on the arm of the chair Carter’s sitting in. Is that enough distance to achieve this level of distortion? He’s supposedly only one or two feet further forward, but looms large like Ozymandias, king of kings…

    I’m still a little skeptical that there’s not something fishier going on, but either way, it speaks to the degree of incompetence and nervousness among the Biden camp: feeling the need to explain that, no, that really is Joe Biden in those pictures, and he really is the president, and those are really his signatures on the executive orders – and that water mark is not from the presidential drool but from an aide who spilled some Evian…

    Being sensitive to this perception, I say, but still releasing a photo where he looks Godzilla terrorising a nursing home. Attack of the 50-Foot Biden!

    Melinda was every bit his intellectual equal in most areas and in some, he probably was her inferior. And Gates is no genius. He’s a high IQ guy, but not a genius. Some goes with her.

    There is no comparison between this and the Charles/Camilla/Diana triangle.
