It's not gun control that's needed, but gang control. Take out our black and Hispanic gang neighborhoods, and there's no "gun problem" at all.

How many of these gun wielders were allowed by law to posess a weapon?

I'm fully aware that in today's world it's racist and insensitive to mention this, but it turns out, rich Hollywood film stars and Siliicon Valley  workers aren't shooting each other, nor are South Dakota farmers or Greenwich Whole Foods shoppers. 

MURDERS IN US VERY CONCENTRATED: 54% OF US COUNTIES IN 2014 HAD ZERO MURDERS, 2% OF COUNTIES HAVE 51% OF THE MURDERS

When you look at individual counties with a high number of murders, you find large areas with few murders. Take Los Angeles County, with 526 murders in 2014, the most of any county in the US. The county has virtually no murders in the northwestern part of the county. There was only one murder each in Beverly Hills, Hawthorne, and Van Nuys. Clearly, different parts of the county face very different risks of murder.

FWIW's Irish correspondent weighs in

From the Irish Examiner: The Orange, the Zebra: they're not just for Greenwich anymore. 

When it comes to interior design, most of us assume there is a divide between the modern and the traditional, a chasm which can’t be crossed without stepping into the territory of conflicting styles and bad taste.
Our interiors are either minimalist, clean-lined and filled with light, or they are richly decorated, packed with antique forms and textures. For some people the first is cold and featureless; for others the second is confined and clutte [whatever, blah blah blah]

Does anyone remember when the United Way was called the "Community Chest" and supported local, apolitical organizations?

Miss America 1989 Gretchen Carson insists that she be respected for her brain, not her ACHIEVEMENT of fame by being the country's "community chest". okay by me, though i'm dubious.

Well I do; kids' baseball teams, our parks, girl scouts, whathaveyou. It was local, the effects were immediate, and you knew where your money was going. Now it's a nation-wide organization that defunds, in Greenwich and across the country, the Boy Scouts for refusing to bow to the gay agenda (actually, I believe the BSA has caved on that issue), pays national board members and staff millions of dollars and runs women empowerment sessions, like the one held yesterday at the Greenwich Country Club (snicker). I stopped giving these people money more than a decade ago.

Speaking Tuesday before a Greenwich audience of hundreds, mostly women, [Miss America] Carlson urged them to speak out and fight — for themselves and other women.
“For anyone here today who is looking to be inspired, stand up and speak up because you’ve been put down in any aspect of your life,” Carlson said. “As women we will not be underestimated, intimidated or set back by misogynists who stereotype and demean us. We will not be silenced through the ways of the establishment or the relics of the past. We will stand up together and use our voices to be the women we were meant to be.”

This was said, mind you, to Ms. Carlson's fellow Greenwichites, surely the most privileged, spoiled people on earth.

Carlson was the keynote speaker for the 12th annual Sole Sisters Luncheon, a Greenwich United Way initiative. The luncheon is the agency’s biggest fundraiser of the year and helps support human service programs for Greenwich’s most vulnerable residents.

The Greenwich Association of Realtors supports all this, and the chain store franchise realtor firms that now rule Greenwich  all push for 100%  participation in United Way's annual fund dive, but that's an invitation I resist: if ladies wish to dine at the GCC, let them join the Garden Club; I'm not inclined to subsidize millionaire social justice warriors 

Gay propaganda brought to your children by the engineer-trained, self-proclaimed "Science Guy"

Comedian Bil Nye, who headed up last Saturday's "March for Science" and has advocated imprisoning global warming skeptics, has a new TV show aimed at teens. Here's his latest effort to scientifically prove that it's attitude, not biology, that determines sex.

This one goes out to all my bipeds who identify as ladies!

 

This world of ours, is full of choice

But must I choose between only John or Joyce?

Are my options only hard or moist?

My vagina has its own voice. Not vocal chords, a metaphorical voice.

Sometimes I do a voice for my vagina, please don't tell me I'm the only one who does that.

'Cause my sex junk is so oh oh oh much more than either or or or!

Power bottom, or a top off. Versatile love may have some butt stuff!

It's evolution ain't nothin' new, there's nothin' taboo about a sex stew

Just add salt or Gerard Depardieu (French treasure)

'Cause my sex junk is so oh oh oh! Much more than either or or or!

If they're alive I'll date'em, Channing or Jenna Tatum

I'm down for anything, don't box in my box!

Give someone new a handy, then give yourself props (Enter nerd guy who looks disapproving)

Oh you're such a smartie. Did you learn gay in college?

Chill with all of that while I drop some knowledge.

Sexuality's a spectrum, everyone is on it. Even you might like it if you sit up on it.

Drag queen, drag king, just do what feels right...

You're tall, pansexual, flirty wood sprite!

Who enjoys a fleshlight in the cold moonlight? With a sad clown Skypin' via sattelite?

Damn skippy homeslice sing it with me all night

(Nerd takes off pants and starts grinding)

Sex how you want it it's your g**damn right!

'Cause my sex junk is so oh oh oh! Much more than either or or or

Get off your soapbox! Get off your soapbox! My sex junk's better than bagels and lox

With lots of schmear.
