There is a new or new-ish public park in Atlanta named in honor of Kathryn Johnston. (She was the elderly black lady murdered by cops who broke into her house on a no-knock warrant, then planted drugs on her dead body to try justifying their actions. The park is not far from the house where she lived.)

I'd never been entirely sure of the distinction between "shirt" and "blouse" -- I had the idea "a blouse is a type of shirt, but on the 'nicer' or 'fancier' side," and for many of my own top-half garments I might use either word to refer to them -- say, a certain solid-color button-front top might be a "shirt" when I wear it with jeans, but a "blouse" with "good pants" and a blazer or suit jacket -- but there are other, considerably more casual top-half garments which I always referred to as "shirts," including T-shirts and pretty much anything that's pullover rather than button-on.

Finally, I thought to look up the official distinction: the "blouses are fancier than shirts" idea was on the right track, but didn't go all the way to the station. The original difference between a shirt and a blouse was, shirts had pockets but blouses did not (because "pockets" go on practical workaday gear). Which means at least some of the tops I'd previously thought of as "blouses" are actually shirts, regardless of how nice they otherwise are ... and also, every "T-shirt" I own is actually a T-blouse. Jeff has a lot of concert blouses from his younger days; I have only the one Anathema concert blouse, plus a few science-fiction promotional blouses I got from a friend who worked for the SyFy channel.

This post by dbcooper made me look up who Terry Melcher was:

Guys like Terry Melcher, who would fuck Candice Bergen then go up to Spahn Ranch to get VD from an unbathed Manson girl, were like the heterosexual version of bug chasers
This caused me to learn that the last mega-hit for the remains of the Beach Boys, "Kokomo", was originally written by John Phillips and Scott McKenzie and then rewritten by Melcher and Mike Love. There's something darkly appropriate about that much early 60s songwriting talent producing that song in the late 80s.

I would like to think that it contains one of those 'public garden' things where people can go to grow their own weed.
