    Speaking of arguments that I don’t want people laughing at and saying “Yeah! You tell him!”

    Seriously when your contribution to the world is Faberge eggs, autocracy and pogroms, no one should much care what you think.— Tim Wise (@timjacobwise) December 15, 2016

    The author of the anti-goose screed can only assert that Canada geese aren’t good to eat because he hasn’t eaten any.

    Also the photo editor seems to have missed the fact that it was an article about Canada geese when selecting the accompanying illustration.Report

    Dylann Roof Found Guilty in Church-Shooting Trial

    I’m surprised it took two hours. Now we can move on to the sentencing phase. Sadly he’ll probable be on death row the rest of his life.Report

      Well he’ll definitely be in prison the rest of his life. The question is how long that is, whether the state of South Carolina does anything to move up the timeline, and how many lawyers get paid while we wait.Report

      I don’t mean this to be to snarky, even though we disagree on the death penalty. I was just a little amused by the phrasing of your complaint. And man, if we’re going to have a death penalty at all, Roof certainly seems like the sort of guy that ought to receive it.Report

      Well…of course he will be, unless he escapes or is pardoned.Report
