    I find it interesting that even though tats have become almost the definition of mainstream (it is now common to see doctors and lawyers and sales clerks and everyone in between sporting major ink), all the old tropes still play in the comics (and the comments). Kind of a shame, really—there is no longer anything special, dangerous or otherwise particularly interesting about tattooed people vs. the regular population.

    @CFinFL: When “their own neighborhood” is a row of unmaintained tenements owned by white slumlords living in suburban gated communities, burning it down may not be as crazy as it sounds. (Bit o’history: the US government goes to great lengths to support home ownership because back in the ‘30s FDR’s advisors noticed that the communist and fascist revolts in Europe were people who did not own property rising against those who did; hence, to kep it from happening here, they made a lot of us into property owners.)


    @BrassOrchid: glad you agree. Voting for Bernie, then?

    “Fallingwater” (aka “Rising Mildew”) occupies the one spot on the property from which you cannot see the waterfall. Which is OK, I guess, if the purpose of the house is to impress visitors (which it probably was). And those dramatic cantilevers were under-designed because FLW insisted upon being his own structural engineer. Reinforcing them before they collapsed cost more than building the house in the first place. Aside from that, it’s fine…


    When I see the drill rig in the lake I think about that huge and growing sinkhole in Louisiana, formed when a solution-salt-mining operation breached and collapsed an underground salt dome…

    If it doesn’t feature Diana Rigg in an “Emma Peeler” leather jumpsuit, it’s not really “The Avengers.” At least not in my book.

    As long as there’s running, golf will only be the second most boring game around.

    I am unable to connect Tautology A and Reasonable Hypothesis B to Baseless Assertion C.

    j gray, hippogriff: looks like a joint effort to me. Too many on the Left want the government to protect us from all “dangers,” while too many on the Right are obsessed with finding more “dangers” for us to be afraid of. It’s a toxic combination, but it seems to define modern America, the land of the fearful and home of the obedient.

    This actually does sound like some animal-rights activists… or pro-lifers…

    “American Idol” or the electoin?
