I see that it's Wednesday and I didn't post anything yesterday, so let's get caught up.
Like many of you, I've been watching the rioting in Baltimore. And the collected idiocy of the major players. Their mayor is a ditz. The president, of course, wants to blame it on Republicans. I note with some irony, that the state itself is a deep-blue enclave of Democrat politicos, and the city itself has a black mayor, a black chief of police, and the majority of the police force is black. It's hard to blame this one on race. It seems to me that Baltimore, like many other cities around the country is simply being, (in the words of our president) becoming fundamentally transformed. The Wall Street Jounal has an excellent piece on how the Democratic model has failed our cities.
In Louisiana news, it seems that a prominent first-round draft pick is a person of interest in the murder of a Baton Rouge woman. If he's found culpable, I'll bet that his football career is over.
In even more local news, Milady and I are planning a road trip this weekend. We're leaving Friday morning, heading north to Missouri for a family wedding. We'll be back Sunday evening, so that I can be at work on Monday morning. Of course, the route takes us through Sprinfield, and we all know abou the quaint little retail shop in Springfield. I may have to stop in and see if they're running any sales.
