    What I find funny about this whole thig is how people are shocked that a man who made a career of saying offensive edgy stuff you know said edgy offensive stuff. Guy has been doing this for years. Yet now it is a line.

    The thing about Chapelle love him or hate hime is he is not a dumb man. I am sure he knew he would get push back on this.

    Reading this stuff about Clapton's anti-vax fervor, I wondered if he, like certain politicians here (Rand Paul, Ron DeSantis, et al) has tons of cash invested in alternative treatments of the virus. But, it seems like ol' Slowhand is just a Shitheel.

    Given payment details of his last 2 specials from Netflix and all...he isn't clearly a dumb man. He has joked about taking time off after each special. So if he does go away awhile as he did years ago I fully expect people to claim how they "cancelled him". But he seems to say that he plans to take time off each time.

    September 2021 was a hard month. 1st Norm McDonald died and then we learned Disney is ruining Indiana Jones in 2022. Just a hard month to take. Hopefully the film tanks.

Just....well...its hard to watch as I stopped halfway in. Not believing this was Jon Stewart. (I was hoping he was riffing on some conspiracy folks...but saw it wasn't)
    Is it really that unreasonable to ask if it escaped from a lab, given China's obstruction since the beginning?

    I don't think that China would unleash a disease like this deliberately, or create it as bio-warfare.

    But that some idiot didn't didn't take the right precaution as they were heading home, and shit happened? That's not exactly a Pizza gate conspiracy

    I can understand that thinking if it was reasonable done. But Stewart seems to be ranting like the crazy folks you see believing My Pillow Guy. Jon being the reasonable guy he was on Daily Show could have approached this with a ..."We have to question this and whether it was an accidental exposure that leaked out etc..."

    I bet he takes some time off while every one bitches about cancel culture striking again and then a couple years from now do a "Return" special and make gangbusters on it.

    Oh I'm betting he does as well. He will make jokes how he caused a shit storm....twice in his life. (If no one remembers he caused a big one quitting Chappelle's Show and taking off from a $55 million dollar deal)

    That would've a perfectly reasonable way to address how it happened as I'm sure people still have questions about the origins of the virus. Instead, Stewart appears to have donned a tinfoil hat and joined the mouth foaming conspiracy set. Disappointing.

    The Jon Stewart of the mid 2010's would be laughing at the one who appeared on that spot. I guess we all expected better from the guy given our years seeing him and how he fought for 9/11 1st responders etc. To see this...was...so sad.

    Texas Law Says Jury Panels Must Be Chosen Randomly. A Brazoria County Official Had a Different Idea.

    For at least six years, the district clerk in Brazoria County used a highly unusual and possibly illegal system to assemble jury panels. Under state law, jurors are supposed to be selected at random from the pool of those who’ve been called to jury duty. But Rhonda Barchak, a Republican who served as district clerk in the fast-growing county that stretches from the Houston suburbs to the Gulf Coast, had her own method. Barchak, who resigned in late August after having held the post since 2010, divided up jurors by geographical region, and then by race, to assemble panels for criminal, civil, and family-law trials. As a result of her idiosyncratic system, thousands of verdicts could potentially be overturned, and the county could face an avalanche of lawsuits claiming wrongful convictions.

    Brazoria County district attorney Tom Selleck first acknowledged what he termed “irregularities” in an August 25 public statement, writing that “jury trial panels may have been assembled in a manner inconsistent with applicable statutes and laws.” Two days later, Selleck announced that he had asked the Texas Rangers’ Public Integrity Unit to investigate. “The law requires jurors be selected at random,” said Selleck, also a Republican, “and it is this process that is alleged to have been conducted improperly.”

    Well, of course this insidious shit happened in Texas, and that a Qpublican pulled said stunt. Why am I not surprised?

    Hold on. The name of the district attorney for Brazoria County is Tom Selleck? TOM SELLECK? Holy Magnum, Batman!

    I rebranded... seven years in.

I'd given it conscious thought for a bit, actually have a person ask me to switch it out was something... but their argument was that for a lot of the people I profile, they don't have some condition, they're just selfish ***holes.

    FRED is a neat acronym, but again, I don't want to ruin a name for people who don't deserve it by association. Like this poor guy:

    I'm not so sure about him. In many episodes, Velma did all the detective work, but Freddy took all the credit.
