  1. Representative Elijah Cummings

    Elijah Cummings, Long time Congressman, and leader of the Civil Rights Movement in the US has died. I am stunned by realization that he was actually so young, relatively. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/elijah-cummings-esteemed-longtime-baltimore-congressman-died-68-today-2019-10-17/

  2. Trump Pulling Back In Syria

    Is Trump doing this for Turkey under the guise of reducing US involvement in "forever wars"? Turkey has spent serious money with us lately. Is this part two of a "beautiful deal"? Your thoughts?

  3. 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...

  4. 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...

  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. The Saudi Arabia oil attack of 14th September 2019

    President Trump says the Iranians did it. That Pompeo chap, who is surely due for firing by now, says the Iranians did it. Then that's an unnamed US official with a wicked sense of humor, obviously. The first country you reach if you fly West North-West (292°) from the oil refinery is...

  7. Building his cabinet, Trump offers plenty of "WTF?" moments

    The most recent cabinet contender Mr T has offered up is General David Petraeus, US Army (ret.), the former CIA director who was mustered out after it was disclosed that he gave Classified documents to his Biographer and lover, apparently in exchange for "sexual favors" An interesting choice...

  8. Zimbabwe votes

    Now my impression is that Mugabe has run the country into the ground, blamed everyone but himself, rigged all the elections hitherto and probably salted away a hefty retirement fund in a Swiss bank account. What chance is there for the country 1) Getting a free and fair election this time? ...

  11. 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...

  12. '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...

    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....

  15. 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...

  17. 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.

  19. 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...

  20. 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...
