Back on July 24, 2016, I wrote Wheeling But Not Dealing, a sad epistle about my less than satisfactory dealings with Aerospoke, until the last few years, the premier manufacturer of carbon fiber bicycle wheels.   I began thus:

I like Aerospoke wheels. I really like them. In fact, I like them so much I bought seven over the years, six in the last five years alone. And I tried to buy four more. I really, really tried, but Aerospoke did its best to keep me from buying those wheels, and finally, they succeeded. I gave up.

Extraordinary achievement should always be celebrated, and the race of the person achieving shouldn’t make the slightest difference. Unfortunately, after eight years of Barack Obama, around half of America is pretty much all about race. In a sense, the extraordinary achievements of black people are noteworthy because a half-century of “helping” blacks has, for too many, been anything but helpful. Far too many are caught in a cycle of cultural suicide, where achieving great things is seen as “acting white,” and a betrayal of a nebulous culture that all too often is built on some of man’s worst compulsions and excesses.

Anyone even remotely conscious and paying attention must, by now, have come to the conclusion that the Media have given up any pretense of professional, unbiased journalism where Donald Trump is concerned. What has been missing to date is precisely how far beyond the bend the media have gone. No one has quantified just how far the media have gone toward being nothing more than Democrat operatives with bylines, and particularly deranged operatives at that—until now, as Byron York at the Washington Examiner reports:

The Mosby-caused disaster is endless, despite the efforts of people of good sense, actual ethics, and good will to end it. Fox News reports:

Attorney [General] Jeff Sessions warned that the agreement negotiated under the Obama administration to overhaul the troubled Baltimore police force may result in ‘a less safe city.’

His warning comes after a federal judge approved the agreement despite the harsh objections from the Justice Department.

President Trump’s attorney general said in a statement Friday that the Baltimore agreement shows ‘clear departures from many proven principles of good policing that we fear will result in more crime.

Allowing students, even staff, to carry concealed handguns on college campuses is an issue of considerable controversy these days. After all, the contemporary American university is one of the most fierce, and increasingly violent, bastions of progressivism, and professors, in the growing number of states that have adopted campus concealed carry have loudly protested, and some have actually retired or resigned.

In October of 2015, I wrote No Good-Guy Guns On Campus: How’s That Workin’ Out For Ya?  I wrote:

I present for your approval, gentle readers, an article by my good friend Bill Scott, who I’m sure you recall from my recent article about his heart troubles.  He’s also the father of Erik Scott, a man I’ve written a great deal about.  

In 1978, Bill L. Minor was looking forward to an enjoyable fishing trip, soaking up nature’s serenity, while dipping a line in the East Fork of the Walker River. He had flown into a friend’s private airstrip near the high desert foothills of the Eastern Sierra Nevada mountains, about 40 miles southeast of Lake Tahoe, and driven to a favorite fishing spot along the river.

To My Students: Farewell, For Now…

The end of the school year is a bittersweet time for teachers. It’s satisfying to bring to an end a year of hard work. That engenders a feeling of accomplishment, of completion. But it’s always sad, because very soon, our classes will meet for the final time. Each class with its unique personality, comprised of the unique personalities of each of you, will die, never to be reborn.
