    LDAHL is one of those rare writers who require his readers to have a passing knowledge of literature, history, culture and current events. Some people get him, others don't.

    I read he only filled about a third of the seats he planned on. Biden’s optimal strategy at this point may be to simply stay in his basement saying as little as possible.

    I think the current scene has an over-the-top “Bonfire of the Vanities” scent to it.

    I actually was thinking more Radical Chic and Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers, but I get your drift.

    As much as I loved Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers, I'm disheartened to think we've made so little progress over time.

    From what I'm hearing from the activist network, Tulsa PD has some 'splaining to do and upcoming lawsuits to face. Peaceful protestors were teargassed, pepper balled, and arrested. I see numerous life- changing amounts of lawsuit settlements - all unnecessary had the Tulsa PD not insisted on going full-on sociopathic law-breaking thugs above the law mode.

    To not cash in equals consent. Remember this in any future interactions with US law enforcement. Rob

    gosh, I will! I will remember!

    What do I do if the police issued me a ticket for not wearing a mask out in public? How would I cash in on that? Or should I go along to get along?
