So what happened to the rednecks promising to shoot looters? The police had to deal with this one?

First cast out the utility pole out of thine own eye.

Florida has a U.S. senator who once flew aboard the Space Shuttle. A congressional candidate from Miami can go one better: Bettina Rodriguez Aguilera says she’s been aboard a spaceship too. But this one was crewed by aliens. As in extraterrestrials.

I like that the slapper is named, the other officer is named, and the horse is named, but not "the mounted police officer".

I'm sure the writer could have really got the bit between their teeth and trotted out a few more horseshit puns.

tl;dr: sexual misconduct seems to be particularly widespread amongst our illustrious state legislature. It's worth opening, though, (a) for the picture of our state legislature building, which falls both into "only in Florida" territory and into "this is so ironic it would strain credulity in a work of fiction" territory, and (b) for an amazing story about Maureen O'Hara.

A gun reform bill is on its way to Gov. Skeletor's desk, and to give credit where it's due, he may actually sign it. It's pretty crappy in some respects and it doesn't go nearly far enough (see the link), but the NRA opposes it, which alone would probably cause me to support it. The fact that there's a chance it could become law is, in VP Biden's words, a big fucking deal.

I may append further info later - I'm on my phone and my work break is almost over.

Wait, wait, wait... are you saying some progress is better than no progress? Because I have been assured that Real Leftists won't settle for anything less than total and complete victory on every point of every issue, and that everyone who claims to be a Leftist but is willing to compromise or accept slow progress is as bad (usually worse!) as the reactionaries and conservatives.

So, if you're willing to accept a lackluster bill that the NRA opposes... now you're worse than the NRA, nice going.

It's surprising that members of the Trump administration are willing to risk going to Mexican restaurants, tbh

Especially given how terribly whitey white white most of them are.

I was at a Laotian restaurant once and the guy at the table one over asked the waitress (on behalf of his date) how they got the rice that color. She went and got someone from the kitchen. The woman from the kitchen, who didn't have great English, just said "We boil it."

(It was just a mixture of white and purple sticky rice.)

To be fair to the white people, I am white and I knew that, and the woman who wanted to know was Indian/South Asian looking.
