I Believe... [You Aren’t Boycotting Starbucks...]

...that, while the woman calling the cops to arrest the two black men in a Phillie Starbucks is complete and utter anal weeping, you aren’t boycotting Starbucks any more than you are deleting your Faceborg account or boycotting the NFL. And what would happen if you did? Would Starbucks cease to hire marginally racist white women as managers — in Philadelphia?

…that, after finally watching The Florida Project with DMJ, and she and I bawling like two wounded animals at the ending, The Florida Project was and is, without a single question, the best movie of 2017. Sean Baker and his collaborators are creating a true and unflinching portrait of an America we tend to ignore.

...that when someone gives you all the keys to every door in Millennium Park it feels a bit like being given Thor’s Hammer and recognizing your minor demi-god status.

...that steel cut oatmeal is just better than the other kind. Call me a foodie if you like but that, apparently, is a hill I’ll die on.

...that if the point of a mass shooting is to get attention and we make every mass shooting a Faceborg event that goes viral and floods the moment with global attention, I feel we are all doing our part to make each mass shooting a huge success.
