Part I here

I don’t care if he was smoking a doobie a mile long, it wasn’t a shooting offense.  Stealing cigars, if true, wasn’t a shooting offense.  He could have been letting air out of the tires of the chief’s fucking tires and it still wouldn’t be a shooting offense, you know why?  THERE IS NO CRIME IN THIS COUNTRY THAT IS A SHOOTING OFFENSE.  Even if he’d been jailed, arraigned, gone through all the procedures of court for felony murder in a death penalty state, been found guilty and exhausted all of his appeals, no one could shoot him.  As it was, he was walking down the street.

Walking.  Because that’s what dangerous guilty horrible criminal persons do in this country, friends and neighbors, they walk down the street, ignoring the police officer in such a perverse, vicious, and heinous manner that the police officer, protecting and serving his tightly gripped ass off, shoots him.  Multiple times.  Because everyone knows the white policeman would never just plain haul off and shoot an innocent man in these United Racist States.

I hate this.  There will never be justice here.  Never.

This is interesting politically because I would have thought, based on my dash, that the repeated use of racist dog whistles during all of this enraged everyone already engaged in the events—white and black alike—even further, prompting a wider spread of information.

Looks like the disinformation tactics worked though. Damn.

This is why being able to read and uncover the political dimension of utterances is so, so important.

Wow this just makes me so sad.

This fancy cake may look like dessert, but friends, this is lunch, and it’s an awesomely deceptive and delicious lunch at that. This is edible spectacle is a beautiful example of Swedish sandwich layer cake, otherwise known as Smörgåstårta. It was made by Kathy Strahs of Panini Happy to celebrate the 4th anniversary of her blog. (Happy blogiversary!)

Smörgåstårta is traditionally made of layers of bread separated by creamy fillings and and a variety of savoury toppings. Kathy’s sandwich cake is made of homemade bread layered with smoked trout mousse, cucumbers, smoked salmon, mustard sauce, and shredded romaine lettuce. The cake was topped with a “frosting” made of sour cream and cream cheese and then decorated with smoked salmon, shrimp, hard-boiled egg slices, radishes and parsley. It’s so pretty we keep forgetting that it isn’t actually sweet.

Kathy used a receipe from Saveur to create this delectable wonder, but you can probably make a sandwich cake using just about any favourite sandwich as inspiration.

Visit Panini Happy to learn more about how Kathy created her anniversary Smörgåstårta.

(Apparently it is just a fan kinda day. Also, after writing that fic, my head-canon now states that all Hufflepuff are given a war-badger upon graduation.)

War. Badger. WarBadger!  That is all
