Amazing – turn an awful jobs number into a bad one! Huh.
I’m not sure why people didn’t stop.
The woman, officers said Wednesday, is extremely angry because she pleaded with other passersby to stop and help her render aid to the deputies but no one would stop for some time.
It might have something to do with the civilian-LE divide, or the us-v-them attitude, or perhaps the people that didn’t stop knew someone that got no-knocked. Not sure. I’m pretty sure I’d fucking stop, as I have some deformed paladin gene, but I understand the antipathy.
Tacoma Public Schools policy prohibits teachers from putting sunscreen on students. Students can apply their own, but are required to have a doctor’s note authorizing them to use it.

Not only did the artist they discuss (Anne) have the same disease as the Ravel, but she became obsessed with the music and turning into visual arts. In a way, it seems, Ravel was sending a homing beacon over the ages to people with the same disease. I’ll avoid snark here, but there’s plenty of obvious snark for everyone to play.
Hilarious. I wonder if Nicholas Carlson wants his pinkie ring kissed, too? The less power you have, the more you squawk, and Nicholas Carlson squawks so very, very loudly.
Picked up and finished Fast and Furious – as suggested by Joe; short book, especially for someone that’s been following along since the beginning. The nicest part of the book, for me, was the timeline in the appendix; the writing was workmanlike, as one would expect in a straight true crime writeup.
If you’ve been keeping up, the book is completely review; purchase it to support the author. If aren’t read up, or are only vaguely aware that there is a gunwalking scandal, you should read the book to get up to speed. Why the Mexican government isn’t raising a big stink is obvious – a half-billion dollar payoff. Why Congress isn’t raising more of a stink is less obvious, but it’s early days yet.
