when someone passes away, no matter who it is, it's a time for mourning. it's not the time to discuss things like whether they "destroyed the entire planet" and "ushered in an American cultural dark age that has permanently poisoned our collective soul." RIP David Koch

One thing to keep in mind when responding to folks who are hell bent on dismissing the history contained in is that Americans have worked long and hard to distort and even erase the history of American slavery from our collective memory. This is hitting a nerve.

I feel like is a prime example of what can happen when you give the living their flowers, and let them plant their seeds in fertile soil. The is exquisite.

If you're still going to bat for Jay Z here I want you to honestly ask yourself this question. What doors does the NFL open to social justice initiatives that were closed to Jay Z and his network?

Yep, I, the accused, has to provide proof that I didn't do it. Happy ending: my credit card reported the charge as fraudulent and gave me my $$ back. I will now delete . And maybe tell the driver what I think of him before I do. Thanks for being mad with me, ya'll!

Update! was super unhelpful, told me the "special agent" already on my case via email could provide the best service. Surprise! Special agent was also unhelpful, said I can't get my $$ back unless I provide substantial evidence that I *did not* damage his car.

A Charlottesville writer lost her newspaper column after a police officer made an empty threat to sue her for (correctly) writing that he'd been photographed with members of white supremacist militias.

This is helpful, but how did you get them on the phone? The number I called kept sending me to pages on the web site.

This happens all the time. I complained to a yellow cab driver about this (which, tbh, this is probably my payback for not using yellow cabs as often as possible) and he said "yep I've heard about scams like this. these drivers gotta make money somehow."

Right! An actual line from an email sent me yesterday: "please know that we don't apply a charge without first conducting a thorough investigation to asses the damage." Sir, how does a "thorough investigation" not include the other side of the story?
