“One of America’s greatest strengths is our ability to absorb people from different backgrounds and cultures into one nation under God.” — George W. Bush
Watch this video. Amen.
People are crazy. They’re as sick as Alex Jones but lack his platform. Deplatforming these “normal” people would be a service to society. And maybe they should seek professional help, too.
Speaking of sick people… Canadian / American provocateur Steven Crowder “recreated” the George Floyd arrest today, to the surprise of nobody to see how low right wing shock jocks can go.
Steven Crowder @scrowderToday I am going to test the theory and have my producer (and @GmorganJr) kneel on my neck for 9 minutes, live on concrete. No tricks, no cuts. We need to walk a mile in another’s shoes... 10AM ET. #LwC

“That’s True…” A few years ago, I fell into a rabbit hole about a mother-daughter combination who thought they could talk to grass and trees. It was hilarious, especially this clip. I came across it today on my computer archive and checked back in to see if they’re still at it, and yes. Yes, they are.
A good profile… From my old college newspaper, a feature on a beauty queen who became a mortician. You’ll enjoy it.
The ketchup shortage. I am not a fan of ketchup (judge away!), but most people are. What happens when the ketchup economy changes and restaurants go from in-house service to take out? The WSJ does a deep dive.
That’s it for me for today. Questions, comments, thoughts on why I am wrong on ketchup? Drop me a line: firstname.lastname@example.org.
