No matter what happens in coming days, it’s impossible to imagine D’Antoni returning for next season. But again, with Buss, you never know, his penchant for bad decisions surpassed by his penchant for shocking decisions. —
Thomas Bagley is the guy who outed another Duke student for being a porn star.
Recently, the President of the Republic of Uganda has signed into law an anti-homosexuality bill that provides for lengthy prison terms and even life imprisonment for “serial offenders”. Agencies and companies that advocate for LGBT rights can be banned and their directors sentenced to prison. The government of Uganda says “Nurture not Nature”
We say #LoveIsNatural.
We have many surprises in store, and there are many lulz to be had in this fight.

I asked Murray about another development that disturbed me at the hearing last week: Two police officers tried to shred Esparza’s credibility by saying she’d somehow consented to being raped. One said that after Ramirez overpowered her, Esparza “consented to Gonzalo raping her.” Another testified that because Patricia was too weak to fend Gonzalo off, she “allowed Gonzalo to rape her.”
It should be obvious, especially to anyone in law enforcement: There is no such thing as consenting to being raped. It’s a contradiction in terms. For police and prosecutors to create any other impression is to blur the definition of rape in a way that disserves victims everywhere.
Murray, however, said, “I’ve heard a million people say she was raped. Really? There’s been no finding of that and I know of no evidence of that except the accused murderer’s statement of it.” —
Would you please ask the D.A. to make sense of this?
Everybody was coming back from dinner, and the elevator door opens,” Black said. “It was Earvin, Cooper, Byron, Orlando Woolridge and one other guy…”
Black looked over the crowded space and suggested he’d wait for the next ride. A long arm grabbed him by the shirt and yanked him inside. “John,” Johnson said, “we’re gonna fill you in.”
The men retreated to a suite, where the following hour was devoted to a verbal slaying of the prison guard known as Patrick James Riley. “They had a team meeting and they’re motherf———g him,” Black said. “M————-er this and m————-er that and all these m————-ers directed at Pat. I didn’t know it was to that extent. And I was like, ‘Holy f—k.’ It was all melting down. —
While Colorado’s pot shops are embracing wax as a popular, potent form of newly legal cannabis, the Drug Enforcement Administration is whipping up a drug panic in California. In a Yahoo News article, Gary Hill, assistant special agent in charge at the DEA’s San Diego office warned, “We have seen people have an onset of psychosis and even brain damage from that exposure to that high concentration of THC. Our concern is that this is going to spread before we get it under control.”
Agent Hill offered no studies or data to back up these claims.
But the DEA, once again, is too late. BHO has been around for at least a decade and now it is more available than ever—and the wax is here to stay. —
A new study has underscored just how little is known about the health consequences of the natural gas boom that began a decade ago, when advances in high-volume hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, and directional drilling allowed companies to tap shale deposits across the United States.
"Despite broad public concern, no comprehensive population-based studies of the public health effects of [unconventional natural gas] operations exist," concluded the report published Monday in the peer-reviewed journal Environmental Science & Technology.
Last week, The Center for Public Integrity, InsideClimate News and The Weather Channel reported on the health data gap in the Eagle Ford Shale, where a lack of air monitoring and research is aggravated by a Texas regulatory system that often protects the gas and oil industry over the public.
