Re: Pocket Knife Recommendations

I like the mini Griptilian enough that the small risk of losing it doesn't bother me. The Axis locking mechanism is smoother and easier to use than anything else I've tried, and the knife is very comfortable in my hand. If I lost the one I have now, I would order another without hesitation.

Re: The Defenders on Netflix

I liked it, especially when the Iron Cranium wasn't on the screen. It was as though they were trying to convince the viewer that their Iron Fist series was really a good show about a very stupid character.

Re: Trumpling the Truth

The problem with Lee, Davis and other Confederate statues is not that they celebrate people who owned slaves, as many of our founding fathers did. The problem is that the celebrate people who waged a bloody war against our country in order to preserve slavery. The claim that the statues are simply p...

At this point, you have to expect Trump to fail the American people at every opportunity he has. He does so with such regularity that it's become boring.

It's OK to do all those things as long you maintain an appropriate emotional and social distance from the people, like an aristocratic European "explorer".

Re: CA, WA homeless policies

In San Diego with the family for a few days, and I'm semi-surprised to see the nice parks that are filled with homeless campers. Saw the same thing in Seattle and SF. What's the deal? This generally doesn't fly in most other cities I've been, where there's a police-enforced attitude of "We made thi...

I'm not saying the doc knew that, but the sense that this was outrageous and unfair lines up pretty neatly with the law. I agree (and have said) that United's actions were outrageous and unfair.

Re: The customer is always right

Whether they overbooked or somehow forgot that they needed to move a flight crew, letting the plane board before kicking people off was their biggest mistake. It's less considerate to the people who get kicked off, more likely to invoke protests, and more likely to result in delays for all of the ot...

The contraception mandate in the ACA has little to do with public health and everything to do with pandering to female voters. The price elasticity of demand for birth control is tiny for all but the poorest women (those on Medicaid).
