      Power from methane obtained by anaerobic digestion of sewage sludge makes more sense to me. There’s never a shortage of raw material.

      There goes the narrative.

      • Well, spin the Narrative in a different direction.

        It’s better than admitting that one was wrong.

        Leftists aren’t really self-reflective people.

    I watched the news conference as the mayor and police chief (a person of color) gave condolences to the family for this “tragedy.” I might have spoken differently and said “The facts are largely in and the evidence is unambiguous. Our police shot an armed man that posed an immediate threat. This is no tragedy – it is a predictable outcome of a man choosing to undertake criminal behavior. There is no excuse – NONE – for the lawlessness and rioting we experienced last night, and it will not be tolerated further. We will aggressively pursue and prosecute all identified rioters from last night, and we will have zero tolerance for anything further.”
