    I think that Nancy Pelosi should be grateful to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for drawing enemy fire away from her.

    Well, the observation that “It’s always 5:00 somewhere” DOES make a certain amount of sense, given the 24 different time zones around the world. But we don’t have a dozen different calendars, each operating 30 days apart from the next one.

    You can respect individual Muslims while still being appalled at the barbaric backwardness of Saudi Arabia.

    You can respect individual Jews while decrying the arrogant, racist policies of the State of Israel.

    You can respect individual Catholics while denouncing the greedy criminal conspiracy operating out of the Vatican.

    You can be a patriotic American while calling out the chaotic, inhumane way the current administration is running the country.

    And you can still be a solid advocate for free speech while asking political partisans to please stop thinking they have to find ways to criticize everything that somebody says or writes just because they’re from the other side.

    Let’s not confused legitimate criticism with bigotry.

    GoComics uses a very simple algorithm to determine what the “featured comment” is on any given strip: It’s the one with the most replies. That’s the main reason why, when some troll posts something, I encourage people to respond with their own original comment, prefaced by “@Troll” or “@Provocateur” instead of clicking the “Reply” link below the troll’s post.

    There probably IS some causality going on here, but it’s in the opposite direction. Spring break is scheduled for when the weather normally turns nice.

    FWIW, I tend to disregard statements that don’t say to whom they’re addressed but nonetheless begin “You people”.

    Reminds me of the small town in Kansas back in the mid-1970s where the local uptight evangelical minister was outraged — OUTRAGED! I tell you! — that the local bookstore was selling that Satanic D&D material. So he marched right in, bought their entire stock, and barbecued it on the church lawn in front of a cheering crowd. By mid-week the bookstore had entirely restocked on D&D material, and he did it again. This went on for awhile, during which time Kansas was the world center of interest in D&D according to per-capita sales figures.
