I'll be away all next week for some much-needed rest and/or relaxation, so I wanted to post a quick note of thanks to you. Yes, you.

I note with no small sense of relief that Hillary Clinton plans to bring the same skills, judgment, and quiet competence to the White House that she exhibited as Secretary of State.
The Indianapolis Star is liveblogging Jared Fogle's sentencing hearing for having sex with minors and distributing child pornography. I wish that wasn't a sentence that made sense in the English language, but here we are.
As you read the following, try to open up your mind and consider the idea of Hillary Clinton and her campaign behaving like petty, paranoid, thin-skinned autocrats. Just for the purposes of hypothesis, mind you. Is such a thing possible?
The following soundbite is being interpreted -- by our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters -- as Ted Cruz trying to be some sort of tough guy. Like he's cutting a wrestling promo or something. As opposed to Obama trying to be a tough guy by standing on foreign soil and belittling his domestic political opponents. But it's simply Cruz laying out the facts and making an entirely reasonable request.
In response to the massive terrorist attack in Paris last week, in which #NotAllMuslims murdered 129 people at the suggestion of Allah, U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama said the following:
No, that's not a slur.
After the horrible events in Paris, all I feel is despair. I've been warning people about the dangers of climate change for years -- decades -- yet no one will listen. The evidence is staring you people right in the face, yet you won't allow yourselves to see it.
No, no, not on the Internet. At the intersection.
Nobody's gravestone is ever going to say "Wish I Woulda Spent More Time Tweetin'." But as long as I'm a hopeless Twitter addict, and I've already used it to say what I want to say about the lunacy sweeping college campuses this week, I may as well collect it all here. Plus, I will never get tired of the phrase "poop swastika."
Another day, another coincidence.
Yawn! But you clicked on this, so you may as well read it.
The University of Missouri doesn't have Klansmen running around on campus, but it does have at least one poop swastika that we know about so far. Also, some guy in a pickup truck may or may not have yelled rude comments at somebody. Clearly, university president Tim Wolfe's resignation was long overdue. If he's not responsible for this systemic racism, who is?
And what does a poop swastika look like, anyway?
Bradley Manning is a mentally ill traitor. Fortunately for him, he has plenty of peers in the mainstream media.
Whenever an act of violence makes the news and the perpetrator happens to be a Muslim, the #1 responsibility of law enforcement and the media is to reassure the public that the two things are completely unrelated.
Or at least that would be the headline if the two of them switched political parties.
Shaun King is a Black Lives Matter activist who -- despite his distinct pallor, his Caucasian mother, and the white man listed as "Father" on his birth certificate -- claims to speak for black people everywhere. He's very active on Twitter, and over the past few days, many of his colleagues have used the #ShaunKingLetMeDown hashtag to make allegations of financial improprieties in Justice Together, a non-profit organization he runs.
