A couple of thoughts.

We’ve yet  to weigh in on the last couple of  bong-pipe bubbles, mostly because they seem fairly clear-cut. However, according to some people, who continue to badger us by e-mail,  these items warrant comment.

Ergo…

  • While we understand the impulse on NYC to “stop and frisk”, and whole heartedly believe that it indeed has helped lower crime rates (a good thing) in that ‘burg, it is still profoundly  unconstitutional, as we believe SCOTUS will eventually rule (of course NYC is appealing.)
    Indeed, we would ask how that differs in either theory or practice to the daily ‘stop and frisk’ of the American people by the NSA.

As to that clown…

  • For ourselves, a ban from any state fair would be welcome, but we understand there are those who enjoy the ‘entertainments’ provided therein. However, fair is fair: being banned is only an excessively gratuitous performance review. A simple “Thanks, but we won’t require your services in the future” should have sufficed, n’est-ce pas? But that’s show biz for you.

    As to the question of whether the clown’s performance should have been allowed in the first place, this is still America where free speech is the standard, however disgusting one may occasionally find it.

At least that’s what the note from the N.S.A. on my p.c.’s Desktop this morning said.
