As a life long Kansas City Royals fan this season has been amazing. Ups and downs, winning streaks and losing streaks, frustration and joy. This baseball season has had everything. As a baseball fan, this postseason run by the Kansas City Royals has been historic.
I get tingles just looking at pictures of Kauffman Stadium filled to the brim. Remembering when it was still Royals stadium and my dad would take us to a game and we’d sit in the right field GM (which is gone now I hear) and I’d look up at the upper deck and it would be empty. Now, it’s completely and utterly full, standing room only. Historic. 
I said it before they swept the Angels and I’ll say it again. I was just hoping that the Royals would make the playoffs this year, everything else is just icing on the cake. It still is. But, it would be pretty special for the Royals to make it to the World Series.

  4. In San Francisco last year, a man stabbed a woman in the face and arm after she didn’t respond positively to his sexually harassing her on the street.

    In Bradenton, Fla., a man shot a high school senior to death after she and her friends refused to perform oral sex at his request.

    In Chicago, a scared 15-year-old was hit by a car and died after she tried escaping from harassers on a bus.

    Again, in Chicago, a man grabbed a 19-year-old walking on a public thoroughfare, pulled her onto a gangway and assaulted her.

    In Savannah, Georgia, a woman was walking alone at night and three men approached her. She ignored them, but they pushed her to the ground and sexually assaulted her.

    In Manhattan, a 29-year-old pregnant woman was killed when men catcalling from a van drove onto the sidewalk and hit her and her friend.

    Last week, a runner in California — a woman — was stopped and asked, by a strange man in a car, if she wanted a ride. When she declined he ran her over twice.

    FUCK YOU if you think that street harassment is a “compliment” or “no big deal” or that it’s “irrational” of us to be afraid because “what’s actually gonna happen.” Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you some more.

  5. I was sure I missed something when I first saw this movie. Then the end happened and the beginning made sense.

    I am out with some friends having dinner at a downtown restaurant. A man in his mid-twenties suddenly stops and stares at me. He is a former student.

    Me: “Carl!”

    Him: “Sir? What are you doing here?”

    Me: “Just catching up with some friends. You look great!”

    Him: “Man, you look the same, sir….

    My parents would run into former students at the most random places.

  9. What is the racial makeup of my social network? I’m pretty sure it’s close to this chart:

    And that made me wonder, why?

    This chart comes from The Atlantic out of the Michael Brown shooting and protests in Ferguson: white people don’t talk to black people about important political issues. As for myself, I hardly talk to anyone about political issues. In my daily life, I don’t want to explain how medical care should be  a basic civil right for all people to the cashier at the grocery market. I don’t want to argue about gun control and gun violence with the lady in line at Starbucks. Those debates and conversations aren’t for random strangers that you will probably never see again. Those conversations are for friends and family that you can talk to civilly (for the most part) and continue to see, even if they don’t agree with you.

    But, this isn’t about the conversations, this is about the makeup of my social network on Twitter and Facebook and Tumblr and Google+. How do you measure the racial parity of your networks without asking right out, what race people are?

    I don’t have an answer for that. But, I hope that someone can find an answer and share the information.

    I thought I would suggest this feature to ThinkUp. Maybe their talented team can figure out a way to analyse the racial makeup of your social networks. They can tell you some amazing things so, why not delve a little deeper into the network part of social networks?
