I think the real issue is that there are two populations. The people shooting each other barely mix with the CCW people. The CCW people are at almost zero risk of being shot. I'm not a big proponent of more guns magically leading to less gun violence, but it is easy to see how these two things are completely unrelated. But the narrative that gets spewed about the city usually neglects to mention that all of that violence is constrained to select neighborhoods and...
Looks like the escape key is also vanishing along with the function keys. Do they want their laptops to *stop* being the laptop of choice among software developers everywhere?
Speaking of Chicago....the Rs love to point to the city as the epitome of gun violence + strict gun laws.... But they don't ever note that those gun laws were overturned and that this recent surge in gun violence has happened in a world where those gun laws are no longer in effect. AFAIK, it is significantly easier to buy and carry a concealed handgun in Chicago than LA or NYC. Been totally doable for 5+ years, and even easier in the last few (I believe they dropped the...

And I suppose that while Orlando gets the islamic designation...it was probably an appealing target to a bunch of right wing terrorists.
Prior to San Bernadino and Orlando, local right wing terrorism was winning the post 9/11 death toll... And of course that's without any big bombings like Oklahoma City or the Olympics (whose perpetrator confessed to a number of other right-wing fatal bombings). Although I did see an article recently that claimed right wing militant activity actually increases when the republicans control at least one chunk of government. Something about active contention inciting more...
If I wanted to deal with a slightly sub par keyboard, I'd probably get a surface pro setup...
Welp...definitely not buying the apple branded USB-C to Lightning cable: https://plus.google.com/102612254593917101378/posts/3sAXo625f1u
Told you those things were garbage.
Even apple makes one: http://www.apple.com/shop/product/MK0X2AM/A/usb-c-to-lightning-cable-1-m so you can plug your iphone into your macbook.Mostly because I now have a USB-C device.Usually I use a 2-port USB charger (I have a couple motorola ones that came with phones). Small in size, but lets you have two devices plugged in. But now that I have a USB-C device that supports USB-PD (power delivery) for fast charging, that charger is a bit inadequate (and I'd need to buy...
