  • I hate it. I watched a lot of boxing in my day, and have a brown belt. I think they should "go to war with the army that they have" and not limit McGregor to boxing. This is so bogus I won't even watch it...

  • I'd love to see an accurate biopic about Max Baer. That guy was a classic American hero. He led an amazing life.

  • Lazar Kaganovich and Genrikh Yagoda were hardly victims or weaklings. Maybe Hollywood should focus more on the early Soviet and give the Nazi schtick a break for a while.

  • Excellent advice. "Hell is other people."

  • Best line in the piece: "For in the end, everyone is out to save his own backside."

  • Great analysis. But the question remains: where do we go from here? Even if young Leftists come to recognize the inexorable totalitarian momentum of their political allegiances, what can we actually do to effect real political change? Your guess is as good as mine.

  • It's high time that white people became scary again. We're in a race war, like it or not. We tend to be good at that sort of thing, so let's get to it.

  • Those times seemed they would last forever. Then all to quickly they are gone. Happily they will last as long as I. Book worms rule!!!

  • Something real bad is happening in the UK, which 2000 people left to fight ISIS. 400 of them have returned and are free to walk the streets. Contrast this with the huge Muslim population of Indonesia, which maybe 50 have left to join ISIS. Muslims in the UK are often more conservative than they are in Muslim-majority nations. One serious mistake they made is allowing so much Saudi money in to build super mosques spreading Wahabiism, the worst sect of Islam. They also have turned their prisons into breeding grounds for terrorists. If you eat pork in a UK prison you get murdered, so nobody does. There is fundraising for ISIS and AQ going on inside mosques, where they're preaching in Arabic and nobody can understand what they're saying. There is no need for social media to play a role in recruiting terrorists there, because the building blocks are all in place. Theresa May just suppressed a report on the pernicious influence of Saudi money. What could say more about the malaise they face? Imams the media calls moderate are publicly saying that gays should be killed, and the media won't touch the story. UK society, government, and institutions are not equipped to fix this situation in any way whatsoever. The nation is now an incubator for terrorism way out of proportion to its Muslim population. People like Tommy Robinson, who actually knows what going on, are called racists and Islamophobes to silence them. Debate is impossible. Another attack's coming soon. Many more after that.

  • There was a story in the NYT a couple years ago about a teenager in Montana I believe (can't find it at the moment), but she was so isolated & without friends that she spent all day on the computer and was exploited and brainwashed by ISIS members and sympathizers in the Middle East. Sending and receiving packages, taking messages and orders, the whole schmear. Naturally the FBI showed up, I wish I could find the story, because it was pretty mind-blowing. When you're that isolated and lonely, you're very gullible and susceptible to manipulation. Those are the people that ISIS is targeting in the West.

  • It's really very simple: after each one of these attacks, firebomb a random mosque, preferably while it's occupied. That would stop this crap pretty damn quick.

  • Don't think we're *quite* there yet, Spike. Right now, there are a lot of Millennials (always in the petri dish) who were taken to ballgames as kids, some of whom still like baseball for baseball, others abandoning once they stopped liking cotton candy. But also, it's not just the Zippos, but also the fact that the number of ballgames on TV has increased exponentially since we were kids, and you'd be lucky to see your team on "Game of the Week" twice a season.

  • Again, technology is the invisible hand. MLB has overpromoted its online content to the point where you can watch your team anywhere, anytime on every device including a Zippo lighter. The overpriced ballpark experience is an unknown to the demographic they seek. They have abandoned the oddball logic of the ancient "blackout" rules for TV. The glowing thing in the palm of your hand will always be better than an upper deck nosebleed to the younger fans.

  • I fully support that Yankees Curse.

  • Won't be long before a consulting firm full of Gen X B-school grads come up with some absurd gimmick to lure Millennials into the sport and it totally backfires, on level of the Dove Real Body Bottles or the Kendall Jenner Defeats Racism Pepsi ad.

  • I would love to live through a Yankees Curse. No more World Series wins this century. Fuck the playoffs, too. They've had enough. Although I dread the day when the Orioles win a couple World Series and the fans become just as obnoxious as many bandwagon Sox fans post-2004 and Yankees fans since time immemorial.

  • Might be a little bit before your time. Popular in my Long Island neighborhood in early 1960s, when prejudice against Germans was still prevalent, if not vitriolic. At least half of my friends were Jewish, so it was still very fresh at their homes. One family on our block was German; they weren't especially friendly, but really got the cold shoulder.

  • I told my twins to "skedaddle" the other day and they just laughed. For the remainder of the weekend they would periodically declare "skedaddle" followed by a louder laughter as they ran away..

  • the abandonment of retail spaces presages the impending apocalypse of automation and millions of people out of work because their cargo trucks are piloted by SpaceX and Facebook. I could see video arcades making a comeback with VR machines. Marijuana dispensaries would be a welcome change from CVSs, 7-11's, and methadone clinics.
