Tuesday Night Open Thread

Lately, I’ve noticed that some comments have ended up in the trash. Got no idea how that’s happening, and I don’t know if you’ve noticed.

Perhaps you have, but haven’t bothered to mention that your comments disappeared (or never showed), because you figured I’d just delete that, too. But I wouldn’t.

I won’t usually delete a comment. If you use a naughty word, I might edit it to make it PG-13, but actually delete the comment? No, I can’t think of a reason I’d do that. If you leave a really stupid comment, I want it to remain so that people can mock you unmercilessly. Yes, I made that word up. I think.

Anyway, the only reason I’d delete a comment — yes, I thought of a reason — is if you leave the same comment twice. Even then, if I don’t like what you said, I might leave both just so that people can think you are not only an ass, but like to hear yourself say the same thing again and again.

Back to the comments that were deleted. I sometimes use the WordPress app on my iPhone to read comments when they post. Because it’s a smaller screen, there’s a chance I might hit the wrong thing and delete your comment. If so, it’s an accident. And, if I see a comment on one of my posts in the Trash folder, I’ll restore it.

If you’re in the mood to help me figure it out, then start leaving comments. After all, it’s Tuesday Night Open Thread, and this IS the place to leave comments. About anything. Or about nothing. Doesn’t matter.

Most Places Are Tearing These Down

China is sending an 18-foot tall statue of Karl Marx to his home town in Germany to mark the 200th anniversary of his birth.

I’m betting that, like when he lost the Olympics to Rio, Obama was really sad he couldn’t get this one.

Cartoon of the Day – Coup

[A. F. Branco]

I didn’t vote for Trump. I damn sure didn’t vote for Clinton. But Trump was elected by people who want the same thing I want: the status quo to be overthrown.

They aren’t going quietly.
