  1. That's a huge fire

    Gone midnight, too. 24 stories, Notting Hill and it is not a place I'd want to have been asleep in. Fire engulfs Grenfell tower block in west London - BBC News (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-40269625) I worked for a while on the CBS Records site not far round the corner from...

  2. This is not a good look

    But apparently quite acceptable for crowd control. Really? https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-08-07/texan-police-put-black-man-on-leash-during-arrest/11390008?fbclid=IwAR3MVrqcZ3vPbgeRXdt_ps9JmmdQAkk-VxnKAeDLX0PT_PxA58JZi-yR9fA

  3. The Tamalpais High puzzle

    No doubt matters will become more clear with time but at the moment, https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/27/world/europe/italy-police-officer-murder-americans.html has me totally bemused. Among other things, every US news report I've seen about this refers to the Carabinieri as "Italy’s military...

  4. That Channel Island Piper Malibu crash with the footballer on board

    I don't remember when I was last more surprised by a newspaper announcement. This is a very late stage for every previous conjecture to be found misleading or irrelevant. The Air Accidents Investigation Branch said from the start that it had no reason to bring the plane in for analysis. Well now...

  5. A$AP Rocky

    I note the following report: In a Swedish jail? Seriously? "TMZ", whoever he is, and Mr Ferg, might appear to an unbiased observer to be partial. And lying through their teeth. And essentially untrustworthy. What puzzles me is who they think might believe what they claim. Other than...

  6. 'VIP abuse' accuser guilty of false claims

    Now that the legal process following Operation Midland and the investigation into Sir Edward Heath has come to its final miserable end (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-49074879), may we persecute a few real villains? I'm not talking about the demented idiot who made the claims and has just been...

  7. Jeffrey Epstein

    Another of Trump's good friends will hopefully soon be behind bars for good, this one a pedophile. It's not a good time to have been a Trump friend. Manafort is broke and in a jumpsuit, Michael Cohen is in the system, and now Epstein, There are other friends of Trump who've lost quite a bit, too....

  8. Fyre Festival descends into disaster

    A gentleman calling himself Ja Rule appears to be taking flak for a failed festival on a Caribbean island (https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/apr/29/ja-rule-heartbroken-after-fyre-festival-descends-into-disaster). People turned up, no suitable venue had been prepared, no acts appeared, food...

  9. Trump Foreign Policy

    Was yesterday's N Korea visit by Trump a photo-op or was it more of a resolute act to soften relations? I give Trump credit for turning certain traditional policy norms upside down. 1- Attempting to normalize relations with NK and Russia 2- Standing up to our intelligence agencies (though...

  11. ForumGarden's prediction regarding this so-called Global Warming crisis

    We've had various arguments about Global Warming on ForumGarden, I wonder whether I could talk people into discussing it from scratch rather than occupying their alloted trench and peering over the parapet waiting for the whistle to blow? Go on, just for once, a let's work it out rather than repeat...

  12. Gene Wilder RIP

    What a pleasing actor he was over the years. The first time I saw him act was as a doctor throwing caution to the winds with an Armenian sheep. His talent was clearly extraordinary.

  14. Freddie Starr RIP

    I am moderately certain I never saw Freddie Starr perform, neither on stage nor on television. I'm moderately certain I never heard him sing on the radio. I suspect I have him in the same mental compartment in which I keep Bernard Manning and Jim Davidson. I'm sorry he was hounded out of the...

  15. City of Los Angeles hostile to Civil Liberties

    The city of Los Angeles decided to eliminate the Natural, Civil and Constitutional Rights of many of its citizens, that being the right to assemble and petition the government. This is not so much about the NRA but the arrogant City Council of Los Angeles. I can just imagine the outrage had the...

  16. Kansas Says Goodbye To 3.2 Beer

    I love drinking beer, but I don't handle alcohol well. What a wonderful thing when I moved to Kansas where I could drink a lot more without being all stupid again. It was like 3.2 was an answer to a drinkers dream. Oh well, must find inner restraint again. Kansas Says Goodbye To 3.2...

  17. Sharm el-Sheikh

    Not a good week for the kleptocrat Pharaoh. The British government is being severely unkind during his London sleepover. I wonder what he's done to annoy them. Every rug has been pulled out from under his feet since he left Cairo. Islamic State, much like the Taliban in years gone by, is a tool...

  19. Do you think President R.A. Trump should consult with the Chinese?

    I wonder if this so-called wall between U.S. and Mexico will work. The thought occurs to me that perhaps his lordship should consult with the Chinese as they have built a low dividing wall between themselves and Mongolia (I think ! LOL )

    I like Tucker Carlson. Often he makes me laugh, then other times I sit gagging. I really like his perspective on blackface by the Virginia governor. Wearing blackface is fairly common on the elite left. ...
