Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts focused his year-end report on perceived threats (some real, some greatly exaggerated) to justices' lives while ignoring the institution's many ethical conflicts. He also appears to have outsourced the search for whoever leaked the draft Dobbs opinion to Samuel Alito in a hot dog costume. (New York Times)

These guys are then repurposed and repackaged by white-wing media and sold as “truth tellers.” The “truths” they are telling are full-blown white supremacist talking points, but for reasons that pass understanding, Republicans (and Republicans only) think that these celebrities can get away with pushing these tropes without getting called out for their racism, simply because they’re Black and famous while saying it. They’re taking clearly troubled people and letting them do the political equivalent of drooling on themselves, simply to titillate white voters excited to have their biases confirmed. Fox News treats conservative Black celebrities the way the Ringling Brothers treated conjoined twins.

A Tacoma, Washington software engineer stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from Seattle-based Zulily. His scheme was reportedly inspired by Office Space, which openly lampshaded that it got the idea from Superman 3. Respect to Richard Pryor. (Seattle Times)
