    Just because he's openly undermining NATO?
     
    The sieg-heils above are examples of terrible gotcha journalism.  If you want to make these people look bad, all you have to do is report what they say into the microphone.
     
    Quick convention recap:
     
    A VP pick was announced after Trump realized he couldn't renege.
    Opened with a chaotic voice-only "vote" to shut out #NeverTrump.
    Delegates from a couple of states walked out.
    KKK and WBC throwing urine at each other outside the convention hall.
    Multiple examples of plagiarism.
    Campaign completely fumbled handling of the plagiarism "crisis".
    Speech plagiarist finally found.  She is an employee of the Trump corporation, not of the campaign, so if she really did write the speech, several campaign laws have been violated.
    No one of consequence is actually willing to speak at the convention.
    Cruz not only didn't endorse Trump, he admitted afterward that the personal animosity between them is very strong--so why did the Trump campaign give him a mike?
    Trump openly questions NATO, emboldening its enemies.
     
    Did I forget anything?

    According to Google Maps, the university is 4.7 miles away.  Anywhere from 18 to 32 minutes by car, depending on the route and the breaks.  So, no, not quite in the same area.

    Are there "red" and "blue" elevators as well?  It would make more sense in that context.
     
    I remember a comedy sketch many years ago, where a black man had been hired to work at an office in Alabama, the first black person to work in that office.  He's feeling very pleased with himself--and then he turns a corner and sees two signs--"WHITE ONLY" and "COLORED ONLY."  He stares at the signs with mounting disbelief and apprehension, and then a woman brushes past him and drops an armload of scrap paper into one of two plastic bins.  The man's apprehension drops as he realizes the signs refer to white and colored paper being separated--or perhaps, segregated--for recycling purposes.
     
    Of course, there are plenty of other colors the RNC could use to designate elevators.  They could, in fact, use every color in the rainbow--
     
    "See?  We know how to be inclusive!  We're using rainbows, just like all the gay people like!  We're being inclusive and friendly!"

    Yup. 
    I'm sorrowful, but I'm also furious. Innocent cops died, and scummy cops will use this as an excuse to claim this proves their own brutality is 'necessary'

    Found this artwork online and thought I'd pass it along--an action figure hero team from the Seventies, before Star Wars changed everything. I would have loved to have had some of the Steve Austin figures, but I was in high school when they came out, and according to my parents, "too old for toys." That didn't stop me from going through the Sears and Penney's catalogs every Christmas, and browsing the toy sections of hardware and department stores every chance I got, saying to myself, "If only. . ."

    (Just curious--who do you think would win in a fight between Steve Austin and Mike Power? I'm inclined to go with Austin, despite Power's helicopter blades.)

    I always liked the GI Joe line's interpretation of Bulletman, aka The Human Bullet. I think he would be a great addition to the Amazing Heroes line--I think this particular character is in the public domain, even if the original Bulletman belongs to DC. Just have him go by his other name, you should be good to go. ("With a speed worthy of his namesake, and steel-jacketed arms giving him super-smashing strength, The Human Bullet streaks through the air to smash the forces of evil!")

    The blog where I found the art is below--you have to scroll down a bit to get to the post, but it's worth a read. Enjoy.
