Has anybody heard from Aristus lately?

I haven't seen any posts from him in at least a couple of weeks now.

Well, here's one for the "No Good Deed Goes Unpunished" file:

Police: Scam Artists Use Child to Steal Credit Card Numbers

http://www.wthr.com/story/27497554/2014/11/27/police-scam-artists-use-child-to-steal-credit-card-numbers

Somebody please help me out here:

Until recently, I would have assumed that if I went to the police academy here or anywhere else, I would spend a good amount of time learning to de-escalate dangerous situations and learning to deal with the disabled and mentally ill, as well as those under the influence of drugs or booze, or suffering from a medical condition like diabetic ketoacidosis.

Why is it that my thinking was apparently so wrong? Isn't that what cops spend most of their time doing? Why isn't dealing with situations without using a weapon considered a good thing?

Anybody else watching Big Ed right now?

Did you hear T-Dubb-O's story?

Why do President Obama's words just now sound so hollow?

And I'm white, for God's sake!

Dear Pence the Dense:

Guess what kind of ads are showing up on DU for me right now: Ads for Gleaners Food Bank. With your recent comments on cutting food stamps, I think I know why. I get the feeling they are going to be busy. I'm just saying.

Love,
Brigid

Buffalo DUers . . . Please check in!

Dear Pence the Dense:

May you die of starvation because you have no money to buy food or die of an untreated illness because you have no health coverage.

Love,
Brigid

Rachel Maddow is creeping me out!

All those gif-type pics of Turtleman smiling. Ugh!
