Re: Gallows humour

Last weekend, my hometown (Newport Beach) hosted the inaugural convention of the previously reported Herd Immunity Party, aka the hipsters. 40,000 were in attendance:

The governor (Newsom) was pissed


Continuing the soCal Herd Immunity Party saga, a remarkably "resistant" headline article for the left-leaning LA Times:
Closing beaches draws a line in the sand.pdf
(89.17 KiB) Downloaded 95 times

That one ran in the today's print edition.
The online edition pulled it in favor of
``Californians broadly trust state government on coronavirus, mistrust Trump, poll finds"
That would be par for the course.

Back to the push-back:

I will guess every Orange County coastal city will take the governor to court on this one.

At least the lawyers will have some work!  :D

Yeah, it's not Montauk.
The Stranglers were a great post-punk, non-PC group.

Live from HB (no not a concert)

More local to me (soCal) May 1 protests

p.s. I see the Stranglers played San Francisco in 1978
Theoretically, I could have seen that show, as I went to punk things like that at Winterland until it closed, and occasional bay area clubs. 
But, after *much* googling, can't find exactly where that show was. Damn, I thought the internet knew everything!

Remember you are not a teacher, your home is not a school. These are unprecedented times. Take it easy on yourself and your children. They might not remember what you taught them during this time, but they might well recall how you handled it.

Of course! But people are so pathetic now that instead of shouting this from their windows they meekly clap for the NHS every Thursday evening. Like all those posh people who are embarrassed by their flag I am starting to get embarrassed to be English! But for completely opposite ideological reasons!

The West's problem is that you focus too much on ideologies and too little on the truth. I think it's an ego problem.
