Tossed Salad Wednesday

~~ I’d like an appointment for Friday, please. “Sorry, he only has morning hours.” OK, what’s the latest available appointment? “He has 1 pm.”

~~ Is stupid catching? I forgot to wash my head after encountering some real daft people this week. file1381272057810

~~ Speaking of stupid, the Turkish president is astoundingly asinine, saying, “You cannot put women and men on an equal footing.” It’s because women have a “delicate nature,” blah, blah. And then there’s the (now former) speaker-elect of the Nevada Assembly, who brags about the Confederate flag he keeps his office “on memory of a great cause,” and who refers to the relationship of Democrats and black persons as “the benevolent master knowing what’s best for his simple minded darkies.”  Or those who foam at the mouth insisting that the POTUS is acting outside his office to on immigration, then stare at you blankly when you say that Lincoln acted in the same manner with the Emancipation Proclamation.

~Don’t you just respect the hell out of the St. Louis County prosecuting attorney, Robert McCulloch, who wants to make sure that he respects the Sunshine Laws of his state and gets all the evidence out, after conducting the evidence-sifting behind closed doors?  It’s also so great that he wanted the grand jury to decide without even suggesting a charge against the shooter, after so many times over almost three decades where he so unwisely beseeched grand jurors to return indictments against alleged perpetrators. He’s obviously evolving and growing since the death of this one teenager.

~~ Mind you, I am not advocating for or against the outcome of a trial in Ferguson. I am advocating for the same procedure to be followed in every case, not only in certain hand-selected cases. Justice needs to be non-judgmental and colorblind, and then the chips can fall where they will. mlk

~~ I am officially in the season’s over, back up the truck category when it comes to the Jets. You know me, readers. I defy logic and statistics and place semi-blind faith in my teams. But Monday night made me realize the team’s broken and has to be fixed. (Fast forward a few weeks or months and see if I come to the same realization about the Knicks. Right now, I am still densely delusional).

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and a terrific weekend. I’ll be working almost non-stop, but I will enjoy the company of loved ones for a few special hours on Thursday. I hope you have that same joy!
