Her Name Is ‘Destiny’

Destiny Allen, to be more precise. Whatever her mother had in mind when she bestowed this name on her, evidently her destiny was jail: A McDonald’s employee is facing charges after police said she got into a fight with one coworker at the Atlanta fast-food restaurant and then hit a second coworker with her car […]

The Devil Went Down to Georgia

What has happened to my native state? Last night on The Other Podcast with John Hoge, I discussed some of the numbers from the presidential vote in Georgia where, we are told, Joe Biden won by about 14,000 votes. How could this happen? Well, you can start by comparing this year’s election to 2016, when […]

Timothy ‘Lil Tim’ Leeks, 22, Charged With Murdering Rapper King Von in Atlanta

Since we reported Friday (“Rapper Killed by ‘Systemic Racism’ and Semiautomatic Pistol Fire, But Mainly …”) on the death of Dayvon Bennett, a/k/a “King Von,” Atlanta police have moved forward with their investigation of the homicide of the Chicago-born rapper.

Last night Wombat and I were texting and I told him I was trying to ignore this development in my native state: Biden has taken a narrow lead over Trump in Georgia, a state Trump must carry to maintain a pathway to an electoral college win and that no Democrat has carried since 1992, on […]

What Counts as a ‘Tragedy’?

Did I mention that I’ve been watching a lot of police chase videos lately? It’s my way of relaxing, tuning out for a moment the continuous drumbeat of political “crisis” messages from the media. There is not an actual crisis in America, but ever since Donald Trump was elected, the media have gone into such […]

Georgia Women: ‘We Can Have Wakanda! We Just Have to Build It for Ourselves!’

  Wilkinson County, Georgia, is rural and sparsely populated, with fewer than 10,000 residents. East of Macon and south of Milledgeville, Wilkinson County is the last place on the planet you’d expect to become the site of a radical experiment in racial utopianism: Two women hope to create an all-black community in central Georgia as […]

One of the ways the media mislead America is with polls. The old phrase, “Lies, damned lies, and statistics” should be amended to include public opinion polls, especially national polls in presidential campaigns. To state the fact as simply as possible, national polls are irrevelant in terms of projecting the final result, because what actually […]
