If You Cook It ($35,000 T-day Dinner) the 1%ers Will Come!

Thread: 

According to Erik Sherman in “Restaurant's Decadent Thanksgiving Feast: $35,000 for 4” The Old Homestead Restaurant on Manhattan’s lower west side offered for Thanksgiving a $35,000 celebration for four people ($8,750 a person). The offer extended was to accommodate 3 groups of four.

By Tuesday two of the three celebration packages had been snapped up. One of the buyers was reported to be from a financial institution in NYC and another an out-of-towner. Read below the fold...

Let's not forget that Missouri's Governor Jay Nixon is a Democrat, mkay?

Because "Nixon," and because of the total pro-cop mentality, I just assumed he was a Republican. Silly me.

Pro-cop twits bully school superintendent into submission

This, from the Superintendent of Saint Paul Public Schools:

I apologize for the misunderstanding around my first tweet Monday night in which I reacted emotionally to the Ferguson grand jury's decision.

My purpose was not to challenge the judgment of the police or the grand jury, but to express my sadness about this tragic situation. I deleted the tweet because it was being misinterpreted and it was distracting from the larger conversation about Ferguson.

Another Dose of Prosecutorial Discretion

Here's a footnote to my recent post on prosecutorial discretion. Of course, the Grand Jury verdict not to indict Darren Wilson in Ferguson was a product of prosecutor McCulloch's decision to perform a non-directive prosecution accompanied by a "jury dump" without benefit of clear guidelines and instructions.

"Nation Doesn’t Know If It Can Take Another Bullshit Speech About Healing"

As usual, The Onion is pitch perfect:

“I honestly don’t know if I’m physically capable of listening to another community leader recite the same unbearable garbage about how it’s time for an open and honest dialogue. I swear to God, if I hear even one goddamn person assert there’s more that unites us than divides us, I will immediately blow my brains out.”
