The Tiny Terror: APPREHENDED!

One of Wonkette's downtown operatives writes to point out that the reign of the Tiny Terror may be over. Vigilant readers may recall that the Midget Menace was the subject of semi-panicky inter-office memos, warning employees about a "black male" who is "very aggressive and . . . about 4 feet tall." He also could be bought off with miniature candy bars. In any case, WP reports that "D.C. police detectives arrested a 37-year-old Northwest Washington man yesterday on burglary charges, alleging that he stole items from five office buildings in the last three months." Sure, it doesn't mention him being too short for most roller coasters, but the M.O. seems to match; they suspect the compact cat-burglary of filching "laptop computers, cellular phones, credit cards and cash." So rest easy, cubicle residents, your small appliances (and small candy bars) are safe. . . for now.

A guest post by "Knitsy McPurlson," which we suspect is not a real name.

Yr Wonkette is not the only website run by brilliant peoples unafraid to poke people with sharp, pointy sticks. Ravelry.com – a website for knitters, crocheters, and other folks interested in textiles and fiber arts – is poking people with knitting needles, which are very sharp indeed.

This past weekend, Ravelry.com's founders showed the world how easy it is to de-platform white nationalists and racists when they banned all "support of Donald Trump and his administration" from their website, concluding they "cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy." Seems like people smart enough to decode a knitting pattern are also smart enough to decode Trump's not-so-hidden message of racism and white nationalism.

One day, God willing, my grandchildren will click open their history textbooks and read about the Central American migrant internment camps. They'll learn about sick kids, locked in cages, kept hungry and dirty and cold for weeks on end, and they'll be horrified.

"Bubbie," they'll say, "how could this happen in America? How could there be toddlers sleeping on the ground without blankets, without soap or toothbrushes to clean themselves?"

"I don't know. I wish I had done more. I'm ashamed," I'll say. We will all have to answer for this atrocity. But some of us will have to answer more than others. Not just the archvillains like Stephen Miller and John Kelly, but the people who kept right on doing their jobs, even as those jobs morphed into defending concentration camps.
