Interests: Fishing, obviously. Lately I have gotten into vegetable gardening, with mixed success so far. I love works about history, American and otherwise, cooking good food and accompanying that with some good drink, if you know what I mean. I love a good political debate when people of different perspectives, but good will, talk in good faith. Er, or I mostly miss that.

I think you are correct on all counts, Rob. It's a bad situation that will only get uglier before it passes. Like a huge kidney stone. Regardless of the facts, white cops acquitted after killing black men versus black cop convicted for killing a white woman is not going to go down easily in many quarters.

An otherwise pleasant morning last Sunday was jarred by the news that there had been another police-involved shooting in the Twin Cities the night before. A 40-year-old woman was shot by a Minneapolis police officer in one of the safest... Continue reading

The last year has seen a lot of ink and pixels devoted to figuring out why people support Donald Trump. I think no other candidate's backers have been scrutinized as intensely, in fact I don't think it's even close. They... Continue reading

Tough choice.

The polls I have seen show the country evenly divided on now or waiting for the next president, including among independents. I think the issue will drive turnout for both sides.

"It's not just their gun rights that are at stake..." A very good point. I was just looking at the gun control aspects, I know there's even more at work as well. I can't imagine the stuff that Patsy must see.

Nothing will ever be 100% effective. Even if you could magically take away every gun in America the criminals and the crazies will turn to something else, perhaps even more lethal. Right now the biggest problem with criminals and guns is we don't fully prosecute all of the gun crimes we already can. And gun control proponents are stuck on stupid when it comes to the mentally ill, actually creating disincentives for people to seek help because they are afraid they would never be able to get their guns back. Without a clear and trustworthy path to restoration of their gun rights upon successful treatment then they won't seek it in the first place.
