Excellent read, thanx.

Yes it is.
I wonder if it will enlighten the unenlightened though?

They won't read it or will stop as soon as they don't like what they see in the mirror.

Two Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies were injured in a shooting in East Los Angeles Wednesday, and authorities searched for one of four suspects who fled during the gunfire.

During a press conference, Sheriff Jim McDonnell said the shooting took place around 6:20 p.m. at Salazar Park. A call had come in regarding an assault with a deadly weapon, he said.

The two deputies responded in separate vehicles, found a vehicle as described in the call and as they got out of their patrol vehicles, a shooting occurred.

Two weeks ago, Walmart asked the Trump administration to walk back its plan to put tariffs on Christmas lights, shampoo, dog food, luggage, mattresses, handbags, backpacks, vacuum cleaners, bicycles, cooking grills, cable cords and air conditioners.

The latest round of tariffs brings the US trade war with China directly to Walmart, the country's largest retailer, and hits the everyday products it sells.

Other retailers and consumer goods companies, including Ace Hardware and Joann fabric and craft stores, also lobbied the administration.

Target said the tariffs will "hurt American consumers," and said working families will pay more for school and college essentials like notebooks, calculators, binders and desks.

The Judeo-Islamic tradition has deep historical roots that Zionism and Islamism have tried to erase.

Sorry I can't accept that.
Some people have issues with reality. Even Einstein. God is the dice.
E(x,t) = Emaxcos(kx - ωt + φ) = Emaxcos((2π/λ)x - (2πf)t + φ)
Now if you tell us that you understand that formula, we'll send the men in white coats round.

Someone dropped some spaces from the formula.

An unfortunate accident. People are only human & there are times when not thinking clearly. A case in point, woman killed as storm blew her caravan off a cliff on the Atlantic coast in County Galway. These things happen often, sadly.

The police and other authorities for at least a week have been issuing warnings not to drive into flooded areas. Yet these officers did exactly that with persons who did not have the use of their limbs to attempt to swim and locked into a cage that will sink. Tell me again it was an accident. There is negligence and there is wanton disregard. Don't think there was premeditation but an investigation will need to determine that. However it does show just exactly how much brain power the typical U.S. copper uses on the job.

Light travels at about one billionth of a second/foot. If I open my front door and observe my 15 foot long car in the driveway, the image of that car in it's entirety will hit my retina all at once, not in two stages 15 billionth of a second apart.
Correct, but the light that is hitting your retina left the car at different times.

Now now Gary, we must not allow ourselves to become fixated on the past. :-)

Don't worry, I'm not going to have a continuous senior moment like GOPers or NRA

"Typical ordinary U.S. copper" would be more accurate wouldn't it?

I'll accept that criticism, excepting the many places where they are worse than U.S. coppers.

Whatever it is, it beggars belief!

Sometimes some of us wish for the old board rating system, where under bridge dwellers and slow boat fishers would be down voted into oblivion.

So no comments on this?
"have conversations with other officers that wouldn't be discoverable".
Hmm...

That's Long Beach, right next to Los Angeles, home of the Los Angeles Perjury Department and the Los Angeles Perjury Protection League.
