Trumpet spit value

All those tabs with interesting stories are clogging up my browser!

It’s time to empty the spit valve — that is, to close some browser tabs with stories about which I’ve thought about writing.  Here’s some from the past few weeks:

Bad News for Obama: Democrats Have a Registration Problem.”

The New Wall Street Racket: Looting Your City, One Block at a Time”

Paul Krugman on How to Fix the Economy – and Why It’s Easier Than You Think”

“Right-Wing Lauds Facebook Co-Founder’s Decision To Renounce US Citizenship: He’s ‘An American Hero’

Zappala won’t charge officers in Jordan Miles case [A police brutality case from Pittsburgh]”

The Top Four GOP Responses To Obama’s Bain Attack”

Chief Dan Hughes: we shouldn’t have let the cops look at the photos; here’s how it happened.

Why Do We Really Get Tattoos? (Posted without comment, but I’m guessing that more than half of the comments here may be about this one.)

About Greg Diamond

Somewhat verbose attorney, semi-retired due to disability, residing in northwest Brea. Occasionally runs for office against bad people who would otherwise go unopposed. Got 45% of the vote against Bob Huff for State Senate in 2012; Josh Newman then won the seat in 2016. In 2014 became the first attorney to challenge OCDA Tony Rackauckas since 2002; Todd Spitzer then won that seat in 2018. Every time he's run against some rotten incumbent, the *next* person to challenge them wins! He's OK with that. Corrupt party hacks hate him. He's OK with that too. He does advise some local campaigns informally and (so far) without compensation. (If that last bit changes, he will declare the interest.)
