Re: The Sheriff Joe Arpaio Memorial Prison Reform Thread

There may be no worse place to live in New York City than on Rikers Island, and it is an even worse place to die—locked inside of a jail, forcibly separated from family and friends. Most people whose lives end on Rikers die of natural causes, but ther...

Re: Random Observations C.A (306 pages is enough)

I'd like to see a remake of 12 Angry Men where the defendant is plainly guilty according to the letter of the law, but Juror #8 convinces the others to nullify.

Re: Recommend a good translation

The Fitzgerald was the standard when I read it in college. I recall it being pretty tedious, but I'm not sure whether that was Fitzgerlad's fault or Homer's. I think an inquiry to your colleagues in the English or Classics departments would have better results than a bunch of internet randos.

I'm not clear on the appeal of Smashburger. Are people really too busy in this hectic modern world to boil down a pound of beef tallow, wait until it cools to room temperature, then dunk their face and hands in so that the unctuous film will never wash away?

This is crazy 1% bullshit but it really bugs me that the ballet puts me, as a single-seat subscriber this year, amid a mass of one-off fucksticks.

Re: When life gives you Yemens

The House voted to force the President to withdraw American troops from their support role in the Saudi war in Yemen. The Senate passed a similar resolution last year, but that was before the midterms, so we'll see if they can follow through now that it's no longer just symbolic. Passage would mark ...

To be fair, there was a time when being the Worst Kennedy meant invading Cuba. These days it's just a competition between two powerless idiots who want to throw people in prison for marijuana or kill kids with chicken pox.
