Thousands of people in Philadelphia continue to protest racism and police brutality following the death of George Floyd. Crowds in Center City stretched from the steps of the Art Museum and past the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul. — NBC10 Philadelphia (@NBCPhiladelphia)

Said Mair Maktabi, owner of the restaurant Dubai Madison, , in an article about State Street businesses damaged by the vandalism and theft of the last week. When his windows were broken, Maktabi leapt into action wielding a sword (an antique that is, in normal times, a wall decoration). Look: Dubai Madison is open for business — and . Maybe check it out if you're in town. At the first link, you can see that they surveyed 100 businesses on State Street and 42 of them said they don't think they will be reopening.

"Cockburn understands that Sullivan is not just forbidden from writing for the New York magazine about the riots; his contract means he cannot write on the topic for another publication. He is therefore legally unable to write anything about the protests without losing his job — at the magazine that, in 1970, published , Tom Wolfe’s brilliant and controversial excoriation of progressive piety. It’s the bonfire of the liberals!... Sullivan, a source close to New York magazine reveals, has to have his work vetted by sensitive junior editors to make sure it doesn’t trigger them." (after Andrew Sullivan tweeted, simply, "Heads up: my column won't be appearing this week").

's the transcript. I seek to amend this legislation, not because I take it or I take lynching lightly, but because I take it seriously, and this legislation does not. Lynching is a tool of terror that claimed the lives of nearly 5,000 Americans between 1881 and 1968. But this bill would cheapen the meaning of lynching by defining it so broadly as to include a minor bruise or abrasion. Our nation’s history of racial terrorism demands more seriousness from us than that.... It would be a disgrace for the Congress of the United States to declare that a bruise is lynching, that an abrasion is lynching, that any injury to the body, no matter how temporary, is on par with the atrocities done to people like Emmett Till, Raymond Gunn, and Sam Hose,

"Dressed not for the anonymity of the hospital or the essential work force, the heat and heartbreak of the protest, the anomie of the supermarket or the park, but for the next stage catharsis. Capital D Dressed. It is both history and human nature." That offended me a little. I understand she's feeling the pressure to get back to big fashion — very expensive clothes and gala dress-up events — but that doesn't mean that these other things we do while wearing clothing are hollow and empty and deserving of words like "anonymity" and "anomie." If fashion matters, it should matter when we're doing the things that are the most substantial aspects of our life — going to work, engaging in political expression, doing our walking-around errands, and

"... at James Madison Park to celebrate [Breonna] Taylor's birthday. Organizers from Freedom, Inc. and Urban Triage — local organizations that hosted the event — said the event was a 'celebration of life' for Taylor. After the party at the park, protesters headed to the Capitol Square for another celebration, this time led by youth organizers. The energy was similar, with a DJ, lots of food and a table for an open mic sign up. 'We're gonna scream. We're gonna shout. We're gonna dance,' youth organizer Ayomi Obuseh, 19, said at the start of the night. 'We're here to have a party.'" The photographs at the link give the impression that it was a very positive atmosphere. There are crowds without the sort of "social distancing" we were all suppo.

I checked the photographs of all , then double-checked a separate page of and , and I found nothing with wings like that a red spot on its thorax/abdomen, so I cannot tell you what it is. I know when I saw it, I jumped up, grabbed my camera, and yelled, "It's the murder hornet," and for that, I will encourage you to use to Amazon.

It says:. On Wednesday, I published an article in the New York Times calling for an end to violence in our streets. Outnumbered police officers, encumbered by feckless politicians, bore the brunt of the violence. Feckless !*. These rioters, if not subdued, not only will destroy the livelihoods of law-abiding citizens but will also take more innocent lives. The overwhelming majority of Americans are sick and tired of this violence and want to see strong action taken to restore law and order. I’ve caused a total meltdown from the media and radical liberals. Reporters are attacking me and going after the New York Times for having the audacity to publish a piece that doesn’t fit within their liberal ideology. He is glorying in their attack on him.

I'm seeing (New York Magazine). What godawful talking points did they come up with? [J]ob growth was wholly attributable to temporarily sidelined workers returning to their old jobs.... But the number of Americans who were outright fired last month — as opposed to being furloughed — is actually 295,000 higher than in April, with 2.3 million workers suffering permanent job losses.... Last month, personal income in the U.S. actually rose by a record high of 10.5 percent, thanks entirely to massive government transfers. But enhanced unemployment benefits are set to expire in July.... [I]t is possible that the administration’s supply-siders will gain the upper hand, and opposition to further relief measures will harden....

"... where protesters have been demonstrating following George Floyd’s death in police custody. 'There was a dispute this week about whose street this is,' John Falcicchio, chief of staff for Bowser, a Democrat, said in a tweet. 'Mayor Bowser wanted to make it abundantly clear that this is DC's street and to honor demonstrators who (were) peacefully protesting on Monday evening.' People were seen painting the words "Black Lives Matter" on Friday morning in large block letters in yellow across 16th street, which leads to Lafayette Square and the White House." Video of the painting at the link. The letters are the full width of the street, and the words look like the go on for 3 blocks. It's as big as it can be and still be on the street.

I comment at Facebook, where to (Fox News). John's comment was: "A basket of deplorables, if you will." The full quote from Biden:. “Do we really think this is as good as we can be as a nation? I don’t think the vast majority of people think that. There are probably anywhere from 10 to 15 percent of the people out there who are just not very good people, but that’s not who we are. The vast majority of the people are decent. We have to appeal to that and we have to unite people -- bring them together. Bring them together.”Here's what I was remembering: "The president held up a Bible at St. John's Church yesterday. I just wish he opened it once in a while.... instead of brandishing it...." To "brandish" is "To flourish, wave about (a sword, s.

Headline on the front page of The Washington Post. The article is The NYT article is : "Economists had forecast the unemployment rate to increase to as much as 20 percent, after it hit 14.7 percent in April, which was the highest since the government began keeping official statistics after World War II. But the unemployment rate dipped instead, with employers adding 2.5 million jobs, after more than 20 million jobs were lost in April." AND: (MarketWatch).

"I have been avoiding them as best I can.... But brazen as ever, white people who have my phone number are finding a way to drain my time and energy. Some are friends, others old co-workers and acquaintances I’ve intentionally released from my life for the sake of my peace of mind. Every few days I receive a bunch of texts like this one, from last week: 'Hi friend. I just wanted to reach out and let you know I love you and so deeply appreciate you in my life and your stories in the world. And I’m so sorry. This country is deeply broken and sick and racist. I’m sorry. I think I’m tired; meanwhile I’m sleeping in my Snuggie of white privilege. I love you and I’m here to fight and be useful in any way I can be. **Heart emojis**' Almost every m.

I'm seeing the NYT headline: Just remember: You are somebody else's "other people." I have my problems with other people . Maybe try, if you can, to live in a way where you depend on yourself and draw on energy from within. If you keep demanding that "other people" rearrange their beliefs and behavior to smooth your way in life... 1. They're only going to go so far, 2. You've made yourself dependent on them, and 3. You're the "other people" too. For the impatient or music-averse, are the lyrics ("We are the other people/We are the other people/We are the other people/You're the other people too"). And what did Jean Paul Sartre mean by "Hell is other people"?

"I actually have them memorized, which is kind of weird. Nobody likes an overbearing big shot , which sounds so much like his words... Help a friend when they're hurting ." Said Jenna Bush — her eyes welling with tears (). IN THE COMMENTS: Wince said:. "Nobody likes an overbearing big shot." And, try as you might, nobody likes a wimpy, ineffectual establishment Republican. Well, not until you're out of office or dead, and then only to use you as the new standard-bearer to attack and cow your successor Republicans.
