Elena Delle Donne of the WNBA's Chicago Sky told Vogue she was gay and engaged to be married.

So the most posted reply is 'Why did she have to make a big deal out of it?'
Ans-She didn't. It was part of the Vogue story and gawd and everybody reported it.

The 2nd most posted reply was 'Big deal. They are all gay.'
Ans-No they aren't. However, nobody on the teams freaks out about those that are.

I'm sure there are the expected vile posts but they can stay in the slime.

I think Trump should get a security briefing.

Tell him that Mordor will attack Narnia. In addition Oz, The Shire, and Wonderland are forming a strategic alliance.

5 scary words:

My air conditioner is broken.

It is working just enough to keep the temperature down but it will probably blow up in heat of the day.
Calling emergency maintenance ASAP.

Three Problems With the NYT Report On The Harvard Study On Police Shootings (important context)

Three Problems With How the NY Times Highlights a Non-Peer Reviewed Study Allegedly Showing No Racial Bias in Police Shootings

Today, amid nationwide protests over state violence against black people, The New York Times chose to publish an article headlined: “Surprising New Evidence Shows Bias in Police Use of Force but Not in Shootings.”
The article’s authors, Quoctrung Bui and Amanda Cox, quote Roland G. Fryer Jr., a Harvard economics professor and the study’s author, who says: “It is the most surprising result of my career.”
But once you look at the context of data cited by the Times, it’s not so much the “evidence” (contested here) that’s surprising, as the way the Times chooses to frame it. Here’s why.
Fryer is “not afraid of controversial questions.” It might be more accurate to say that he actively seeks out questions that could challenge conventional wisdom, given that his interests have included “considering the possibility” of genetically lower intelligence in black people than whites.

It would seem that the NYT and Professor Fryer want to gain attention without enough review of their work.
