Jets’ GM Cheveldayoff: ‘Tough Decisions’ Coming This Summer

WINNIPEG — General manager Kevin Cheveldayoff says an upcoming summer of “tough decisions” means changes are on the way for the Winnipeg Jets. Young stars such as Patrik Laine and Kyle Connor are due hefty raises now that their entry-level contracts are coming to an end, but the team was already near the US$79.5-million salary cap so some familiar faces may be gone to free up cash. “We have some tough decisions to make this summer, a lot of them,” Cheveldayoff said Monday after exit meetin...

‘Little’ Review: A Well-Intentioned Reverse ‘Big’ That Wastes Its Talented Cast

Little plays like a movie created in a boardroom. It’s as if a group of executives who have been on the Internet twice brainstormed the idea for a movie: People love Big, they love Girls Trip, they love Issa Rae, and they love endless references to memes. But put that all together, and you’ve got an incoherent mess of a movie that is barely held together by brightly colored tape and a charismatic cast. Directed by Tina Gordon Chism and produced by the writer of Girls Trip, Little has all the el...

'Epidemic' of Class-C arrests poo-pooed in 2001 by SCOTUS now documented by new Appleseed report, racial-profiling data

"Data, data, data, I cannot make bricks without clay." - Sherlock Holmes One of the frustrating aspects of debating the issue of Class C misdemeanors in Texas has been a general lack of information about how often people are arrested for these low-level infractions. When legislation to limit such arrests was heard in 2017, law enforcement claimed Class-C arrests almost never happened and were nothing to worry about. "Move along," we were told, "nothing to see here."Except that was patently false...
