anyone watching the elections? SDLP candidate makes her own bit of history in NI election

Lilian Seenoi-Barr made her own bit of history over the weekend by becoming the first black politician to be elected to any public office in Northern Ireland.

The SDLP member took the 5th seat in the Foyleside District Electoral Area of Derry and Strabane City Council.
Two years ago, she was co-opted onto the council and was selected to contest the seat this time around.
She secured 960 first preference votes, 15.5% of the total in her area.

unpopular take-

obama shoulda kept rhambo on staff. he needed an assassin.
i think esp his 1st term would have been more productive if he’d stayed on. i know lots of folks here hate him. but i never did.
he wanted to make compromises to get the aca that would have sucked. took a lot of shit for it. but i still think rahm was plugged into the power structure in a way that obama rly needed. and he would have had his foot up his ass on a lot of things where it would have been helpful.

ya know, 1 of the things that i wonder about- i have millennial kids. 1 thing about the games they played that struck me was that every party needed a couple of bad guys. you need a burglar.
i always found that interesting. a nuanced idea, imho. and rooted in the reality of the world.
and i cant say as i’ve ever seen a more dangerous burglar. i’m glad he’s not my neighbor, but…

obama should have kept him. i can see what a pita it must have been to have him in the wh.
but i cant help imagining the political corpses he would have left lyin around, and i cant help dreaming.

we all say we want a dem w a spine, but we hate them when we meet them.

'the offer' on prime. story of how the godfather got made.

pretty interesting bit of movie history. 10 parts!
written by the producer, who was a coder at rand corp who decided he wanted to be in movies and just moxied his way in. he came up w the idea for hogan’s heroes, and parlayed that into a shot at paramount. he got it cuz no one else would touch it.
