Bunch of small stories we just had to publish:
- The City's first Wal-Mart opens Wednesday in Austin. Watch the media trumpet that every single store that ends up closing is because of Wal-Mart's low prices. Amazing how everyone on the left wants to tell you how to spend your money, isn't it? Now shut up and watch capitalism work it's magic on the West side.
- The slave "reparations" lawsuit gets another hearing Wednesday. With luck, it'll be tossed out on it's lack of merit and standing once again. As we've stated before, reparations are paid to the survivors, not the descendents. If you can find us someone who can prove that they were a slave, we'll kick in to the pot. But punishing citizens corporations for a practice that was legal at the time it was undertaken is insane. WARNING: we will not publish any comments on this story should they not meet a very high standard of cognizant thought processes.
- Burglar caught with the loot beats the rap - don't even mind the fact that he had 7 previous burglary convictions. And a padlock in his pocket that was from the victims apartment. Just more proof that the Illinois Appellate Court is staffed with morons.
- Evidently, the city has found a simple way to diversify the Fire Department. And it looks like they took a page out of the Lieutenants exam handbook - make it simple enough so that EVERYONE passes. Then lie through your teeth, throw everyone into a "well qualified" pool and claim the hiring process is blind. Aldercreature Rugai worries that the CFD won't get the "best" qualified candidates. We're afraid she's making sense.
