    Given the prevalence of "Road Rage" incidents, I'm wondering how long it's going to be before we start seeing violent incidents involving the charging of EV's. Charging is nothing like fueling your vehicle. With fueling, you pump, staying with your vehicle for a couple of minutes until you're complete (unless you're dealing with a long haul truck). With charging, you plug in and leave it for the duration of your breakfast stop (for a partial charge) or for hours (if you're looking for a full charge). What's going to happen when some a$$hat comes along, desperate for a charge, and steals your charging line while you're not there - and you come back and discover it? I can see the possibility of some real vehicular damage being done in response to something like that. Are you going to have to sit there and wait while your vehicle charges?

    Both indigenous slavery of those from conquered tribes (before White Europeans ever arrived), and slavery of African people once they were imported. And let's not forget that the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek and Seminole nations allied with the Confederacy.

    It gives the impression that she was fired in retribution for "telling the truth". According to NYMag, it seems her hours were cut to zero because she didn't get vaccinated So the message that's clear is really, "No vax, no work hours".

    Pragmatically, a Fully Informed Juror is there to act according to the dictates of their own conscience. Usually we hear of that in terms of a juror setting aside a law they deem invalid and voting to acquit (like many drug possession charges have been). But a juror can pretty much consider anything they want to in reaching a decision. It's the Yin/Yang of Fully Informed Juries - the judgement's not always going to go the way someone outside the jury thinks it ought to go, and it's not always going to be decided on the facts of the case. As a juror, you can save a life, or take one. It's just a sad reality of our jury-based justice system. Sometimes we celebrate that, other times we mourn it.

    This isn't so much about "Political Philosophy" so much as it is about "Political Pragmatic Reality". And it's produced by the New York Times, nonetheless. So yeah, blue states, why don't you lead by example and show us how it works out.

    It's hard to blame (or credit, depending on how you look at it) anyone but McConnel and Trump. The Postmaster General is appointed by a Board of Governors that consists of nine members serving overlapping seven year terms (used to be nine years, but was changed during the Bush years). Obama got two governors appointed before Mitch became majority leader - after which Mitch chose to Garland Obama's appointees. When Trump was elected, the governor appointments were sped through. Six of the nine governors are now Trump appointees; and the Trump Governors appointed DeJoy. Until next year. Biden has made three appointments this year. John M. Barger's term expires this year; so Biden will have another appointment. Donald L. Moak's and William D. Zollars's terms are up next year; so Biden will have two more picks then - enough to shape decisions going forward. For laughs, look at the bio for Amber McReynolds (one of Biden's appointments this year) ... hint: she’s a leading expert on election administration and policy. Hmmm, I wonder what the USPS will be focusing on going forward. Edited to add: It looks like the term of the current Chairman, Ron A. Bloom, is currently extended (the board may extend member's terms by up to a year); but expires next month - so Biden gets another appointment this year. That'll bring his total to five, enough to get rid of DeJoy.

    Yep, and if the guy is convicted and receives the maximum sentence, then he won't be be causing any more air travel violence for 20 years (except maybe on Con Air). It seems like a pretty open and shut case. If they're really serious about what a threat that people like this pose, then I expect they'll not plead this down to something that's a slap on the wrist. But I kinda suspect that this guy won't get anywhere near 20 years.

    Passenger on plane from JFK punches flight attendant, forces emergency landing Well, he won't be flying with American Airlines again; and I really don't have a problem with that. Nor do I have any issues with American sharing details of the incident with other airlines and allowing them to decide. But if I worked for an airline that knowingly allowed the guy to fly on a flight I was working, I think I'd walk off the job.

    Further update. It appears he was not convicted, nor even charged, with rape.

    The reality of the public bathroom situation is that placing a "Women" sign on the door doesn't magically keep men/boys from entering (as though they were wearing those dog shock collars, but being activated by the "Women" sign rather than a buried electric fence). And that's regardless of whether they're wearing pants or skirts. And in this case, the trans policy wasn't in effect at the time of the rape (a rape which is now confirmed and convicted). It's particularly difficult to keep a boy out of a girls bathroom when he has the cooperation of the only girl in the bathroom. In this case, according to the girl's sworn testimony, the boy and girl in question had met in the same bathroom on two previous occasions to have consensual sex. I'm not sure of Virginia law, but I suspect that even those two consensual encounters would be considered rape due to the ages of the kids (statutory rape). And the boy was even invited there by the girl for the third encounter - though she just wanted to talk. So yeah, they had consensual sex twice before, but it doesn't change the fact that the third time was nonconsensual sex. That info was gleaned from this article that I found today. I haven't found any details on the boy's second rape, but the first one seems less a matter involving transgenderism than it does about intimate partner sexual abuse and rape. However, the first case still seems like an attempt, by the school board, to cover up the rape (involving an assailant wearing a skirt) at a time when the school was addressing transgender policies.
