Happy Memorial Day! Holiday weekend open thread
Just spinning through the news this morning but not finding much of substance. So, here are a few things that caught my eye.
The wheels of justice turn, as they should; we might all do better at remembering that before we get all incensed by lawlessness. The US soldier who raped the 14 year old Iraqi girl and then killed her and her family has been tried and sentenced .
The melting pot moves inland . Whites become the minority in a Kansas county. Welcome to the true face of diversity. It rocks! I've visited whitebread America, and I know you're kinda antsy about it, but truly, it is a marvellous thing.
Some local news. A local entrepreneur's warehouse goes up in flames last night. Since he prides himself on "next day delivery" that fire destroyed his entire stock. He's a great example of someone who has not only succeeded but has always given back to the community. People who have lost everything in fires, Katrina evacuees, and too many others to count have gotten free furniture from this man over the years. Not all businessmen are evil bastards out to enslave employees and rob communities.
And finally, for the grill. This is AWESOME . If you're wondering what to BBQ this weekend, this might be it ;-)
