George Floyd - What can I add?

It keeps happening, over and over and over again.  Rodney King, Trayvon Martin, George Floyd, with plenty before, in between, and sadly I fear, more to come.  Why?   I think I know the answer, and its ugly.  The sad but honest reality is that a lot of white Americans are afraid of blacks, especially young black men.  And worse still, and this is the really hard part, in some ways its not even their fault.  White Americans have been conditioned and taught to think this way.   I'm not excusi...

Car-buying in the coronavirus era is moving online, but traditional dealerships aren't going away any time soon

The COVID-19 pandemic has shuttered car dealers' showrooms nationwide and compelled automakers and dealerships to pursue online transactions. The auto industry has experimented with no-dealership deals for years, but progress has been halting, even as some digitally savvy consumers ask why they can't buy cars the same way they buy many other things. Some consumers have discovered that an all-digital transaction is not only possible, but preferable. But Jeremy Anspach, CEO of PureCars, an infor...

Types of American cheese to try

American cheese is more often the butt of the joke than the centerpiece of a cheeseboard. It conjures thoughts of yellow squares in flimsy plastic — great for burgers and melting on sandwiches like grilled cheeses and tuna melts, terrible for nearly anything else. Instead, people in the United States often defer to European cheesemakers in France, Italy, Switzerland, and Ireland for the fancy stuff. While those imported cheeses have an admirable reputation, homegrown American cheese deserves ...

Trump signs an executive order taking direct aim at social media companies

On Thursday, President Trump signed an executive order targeting the legal shield that internet companies rely on to protect them from liability for user-created content. That law, known as Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act is essential to large social platforms like Twitter, YouTube and Facebook, the kind of companies the president has long accused, without evidence, of engaging in anti-conservative censorship. Trump was joined during the signing by Attorney General William Barr, wh...

Chargers hire Pep Hamilton to groom Justin Herbert, but no pressure

Pep Hamilton hasn’t wasted any time getting to know the Chargers’ next face of the franchise and eventual successor to Philip Rivers. This, of course, is Justin Herbert, whom the Chargers drafted with the sixth overall pick in last month’s NFL draft. Perhaps it’s not fair to label a rookie quarterback as a “face of a franchise,” but that’s what many expect from him in the years to come, and Hamilton was hired to guide Herbert to that esteemed status. There’s plenty of pressure on the Chargers’ n...

Twitter tried to correct Trump's falsehoods about vote by mail, but the platform's first fact-check on the president's tweets was itself misleading

For the first time on Tuesday, Twitter rolled out a feature to flag Trump's tweets about voting by mail as misleading in an effort to provide more context and fact-check them.  The platform added a "get the facts about mail-in ballots" banner below Trump tweets falsely claiming that mail ballots in California will be "substantially fraudulent," "stolen from mailboxes," and sent to non-voters. Twitter's fact-check section contradicted itself by both saying that mail-in ballots are "very rarely ...

Reviewing a handful of the latest ugly prison pandemic headlines

I have not done a round-up of stories on the spread of COVID-19 through state and federal prison populations lately, in part because this sad tale has already become just standard bad news.  But some recent headlines and stories from this arena seemed especially worth flagging.  So: From the Anchorage Daily News, "He tested positive for the coronavirus. One day later, a federal prison flew him home to Alaska." From The Guardian, "Pregnant inmates languish in US prisons despite promises of rel...

I have over 100 books that I want to alter the titles. For some reason, I did this - for example, for my Clive Cussler Books: "Oregon Files 14 - Final Option" - or - "NUMA Files 14 - Nighthawk". I want to change these to: "Final Option [Oregon Files 14]" and "Nighthawk [NUMA Files 14]". I know - I have the series column - and I am good with that but I would like to change my titles to this format.

Alexander: ‘The Last Dance’ wasn’t the last chapter for Chicago Bulls

Winners write history, right? And for the last five weeks, thanks to hunger for anything resembling fresh sports material, we got to witness a classic example: ESPN’s 10-part documentary on the 1990s Chicago Bulls’ dynasty as seen primarily through Michael Jordan’s eyes and with his approval. But what of the players and coaches who had to pick up the pieces after the big top came down and the headliners scattered? The 1998-99 Bulls had what turned out to be an impossible task, complicated furthe...
