    It seems destined to go nowhere. We need police, but there is also a need for police reform.

    And why the U.S. has the largest prison population in the world (does that make us the safest country in the world? of course not) or close, has nothing to do with police per se, but has to do with long sentences for crime, longer than most other places, the old prison industrial complex.
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    Not to mention the fact that we do our best to insure that when prisoners get released they have litte hope of being successfully reintegrated into productive society so they have little choice but to immediately go back to a life of crime.

    Thank You, HS! I just feel so very blessed for once in regards to employment. Even at stressful times it's nothing like being in hospitality - I am finding grocery retail to be much more human. Rob

    Man would I ever love an update on the grocery cart situation at your store Rob, but I’m sure I’ll never get that. I mean, how’s the management viewing removal of grocery carts these days?

    You are asking for a comparison of apples to oranges here, IL, and I will calmly tell you why. The neighborhood I work in is not the same one I live in - demographically nor socioeconomically. The work neighborhood has a much higher median income and much higher rates of auto ownership. Pushing your groceries home from the store using the store's shopping cart was never an issue at this particular store - for the reasons given above.

    So I don't know what to tell you, IL. Rob

    My understanding is that the Board Of Elections in NYC consists of 10 members: one Dem. and one Rep. from each of the five boroughs.
    So it was a bipartisan screw up

    What I was surprised to learn today was this: On five occasions, counties in NYC were subject to the preclearance requirement of Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act.
