On the one hand, screw this guy.

On the other hand, this is a pretty neat story.

Gotta be a huge embarrassment for the Japanese police.

Chilean sea bass and filet mignon were served at the Golden Globe Awards dinner in 2017. Chilean sea bass was served in 2018 and 2019. This year, the dinner will be plant-based. Nearly 1,300 show-business people will have to eat mushrooms, beet soup and brussels sprouts instead of steak and fish. Yeah, that should go over well.

In 1976, President Gerald Ford officially recognized February as Black History Month in 1976. He called upon the public to "seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history." Black History Month has been observed every year since. Apparently we're not supposed to care about black history during the other 11 months of the year. Anyway, some schmuck at Barnes & Noble decided it would be a good idea to "celebrate diversity" by printing famous novels with new covers. A black Juliet. A black Captain Ahab. A black Frankenstein monster. Wow. The Twitterverse is not amused.

'Apologize for this racist idea': Barnes & Noble faces backlash over 'disgusting' book covers

Who?

Yang quit.
I knew who he was.
Yeah Yang was in the debates and all. Deval Patrick is a former Massachusetts governor, who wasn't particularly well-liked in his own state, and not well-known elsewhere in the country. He was a friend of Obama, but that didn't get him anywhere. Patrick entered the primary race very late, so he didn't participate in any debates. I'm not sure what he thought was going to happen.

That's a great selling point -- not well liked by those who know you.
