The best (only good thing) about Orlando was a haunted house on Church St. (Terror on Church Street) back in the 90s, best haunted house EVER. I'm sure it's been closed for a very long time now though.

Around here, and from the appearance of it in That part of FL too, only poor trash lives in gated communities.

Is that the kinda place where you can double-kick little girls in the stomach?

Sure, but if you're black, or a black hispanic, expect to get shot for doing so.

North Dallas is exactly the type of place where you would expect to see gated communities, at least according to the stereotypes, yet other than apartment and condo complexes, I don't know of any. Some of the richest residential real estate in Texas is a few blocks from where I live and you can walk right in. Never noticed any in Plano or Frisco, even.

The rich neighborhoods mostly just pay off duty cops, which is likely more effective, and certainly more convenient, than building walls.

SF needs to know:

Notch, shawl, or peak lapel?

Interesting now to watch that the same networks who built the beatified image of T now using the same gusto and exploitation to "question" it. Was he a drug dealer? Was he on suspension? Why was he in this neighborhood? What did he look like? etc etc. These were issues they knew and/or were available literally from the start; they were intentionally suppressed because they didn't fit with the narrative they'd constructed OR (tinhat smiley) because one could exploit and extend the longevity of the story through intentional suppression/selection of images and information.

Edit; one unintended/strange consequence of watching this story and reading the "narrative" is that, by now, I'm so sick of it that I simply don't care anything about it anymore. I've lost any emotional interest or connection to the case, to T, to Z, or anybody else... and the disingenuous coverage has just made me wish it would just go away. As expected, that important discussion of real social issues never happened.

Edit edit; and why somebody like Jonathan Capehart is viewed as an "expert" in anything is beyond me; his "analysis" makes Fareed Zakaria look like Immanuel Kant.

+ a million. CNN has a special airing at this moment with Solidad and a live audience discussing the case. CNN seems to want to cash in on it rather than report facts and new developments. I've heard enough, more than enough. All I want to know now is the results of the investigations that are in progress, and nothing else.

Oh bullshit. There is no important social issue here. There's 300 million + fucking people in this country. 40,000 die every year in car accidents. Get your fucking priorities in order.

Eh, maybe you're right; I just don't care anymore. I actually started to type a response about possible social issues, and then said, "Meh... it's not worth the effort." I usually don't do that or go for the lazy response, so know I must have reached my absolute saturation point.

Anyway, I'm going to post on the Scent-of-the-Day fragrance thread and then go enjoy my saturday. It's Givenchy III!

Remember Kiddies, guns don't kill people, the paranoid, illiterate, limp pecker people who buy them do.

If George Zimmerman is not arrested in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin soon, theRev. Al Sharpton will call for an escalation in peaceful civil disobedience and economic sanctions.

Sharpton would not say the efforts would be taken against the city of Sanford specifically, but he has been critical of the police department's handling of the case.

Nope. A friend of mine is at U. Miami and we drove down to the Keys. That is my experience with Florida. Miami I liked, the Keys I liked. The part between, not so much.
