And maybe you don't even know it. Also, 7 other things worth knowing today.
I don't know if a public official can be compelled to cooperate with a state investigation. If so, the Texas AG or governor needs to compel Uvalde officials to provide all pertinent information regarding the shooting. The refusal to cooperate will be viewed as an admission of guilt by the public.
Dad jokes, isn't what you are saying (like, dislike, subscribe) exactly why you write this column?
If you want to view my personal phone you will need a warrant. As they say, a fish rots at the head. Perhaps some of the justices should look closer to home.
What a great story! There, but for the grace of God and the intelligence of a graduate student, went catastrophe! So glad she finally got the recognition she's been due.
Can’t include “lobster roll” and exclude “Nathan’s Hot Dog” (or how about Rutt’s Hut) from a sandwich list. And where is the Monte Cristo?!? And breakfast sandwiches, in general. I know people BEC SPK tattooed on their knuckles to speed their deli order.
Such inspiring reading this morning, Bill. Kudos. I feel good after reading stuff like this. So much doom and gloom out there. This story is a breath of fresh air. Damn good thing they took that undergraduate student's advice, eh?
Friday while finishing an ethics class to renew my PE license I read this story and it was amazing how many people stepped up to do the right thing to prevent the impending disaster. This was part of her undergraduate thesis at Princeton University. The two major points in her findings were the quartering winds which usually aren't an issue and the use bolts in lieu of welding all connections. without her speaking up and then everyone else stepping up we would know Citi tower as another disaster.
FYI: I didn't see this link listed. For those of you with New Yorker subscriptions:

This happened to me. I was sitting in on a class with some teens as they needed an adult monitor. One of them was lamenting that he was adopted and disliked his adopted parents. Off the cuff, I mentioned that he actually has it better than the rest of us because he’s actually not related to them. The class cracked up laughing. I saw him several years later. He told me that that comment changed his whole attitude toward life and he graduated with honors from school and went on to grad school. “What you said changed my life! Thanks!” 😳
No PB&J? Utter fail.
Leave it to Philly to ruin a perfectly great steak sandwich by smothering it in some cut rate cheese. Fail.
Nothing from Primatti Brothers in Pittsburgh? Another fail.
PoBoy? Damn skippy! Pass the Tabasco, please.
The Miami Cuban kicks the Tampa Cubans ass. Trust me on this.
No Patty Melt? Really? Fail.
No pulled pork BBQ with slaw and onion rings on it? The worst fail.
Best sammich ever? The one you make at 2am when no one else is around. Guilt free heaven.
The Uvalde cops have it right. They know the Texas state law is all hat, no cattle. Abbott and Paxton are the worst. They step in cow patties, drag the stinky stuff all over the place, get their TV face time and then leave the local cops to clean up the mess. The Uvalde cops are just cutting out the middle men. Good for them.
Get better ones.
I find it odd that the Duke graduate didn't do any checking of her quotes (as apparenly that's what she included, were quotes). Odd and sad.
This was a terrific read but, and I’m ashamed to admit it, the part that really lifted me up for the day is the news of the sequel to This is Spinal
Tap. I may never see the sequel to Top Gun (although I live in San Diego and the peer pressure will be very high) but I know I will watch This is Spinal Tap II to see who spontaneously combusts. Or not.
Another reason I subscribe. Total good stuff today.
Great job as always! Perhaps not the place to request this, but how can I get your ebook on Emotional Intelligence? Thanks! Mike DeSilva
