Then, my profitability is reduced by the inability of the mall, city, and state to protect the premises—But I better not be late with any of my tribute payments.

Amish quilting festival goes awry.
I can’t remember the last time I went to a mall.
Quick...put up a sign that says;
“Fight Free Zone”
That’ll take care of the problem.
Ha, ha, I like that one! I may borrow your line sometime if you don’t mind.
There is also.. Norwegian Lutherans battle it out over whether the correct term is “casserole” or “hot dish”.
Teens being teens.
Hicks said deputies made the following arrests based on probable cause. She did not release the names because they are juveniles:

..a 15-year-old girl on a count of remaining after forbidden.
..a 14-year-old girl on a count of disturbing the peace.

We’re not allowed to say that they are black youth, or to talk about whatever gang affiliations are involved. We’re not supposed to speculate that someone felt “dissed” and felt compelled to start a fight.
So many things we’re not supposed to say. Elephants are in the room but we can’t talk about those elephants.
