The man throws his dog into the house and closes the door, then realizes he has an angry dog to contend with. After a second, the man draws a handgun that he was open carrying and points it at the dog, just a little too long to the point where the man was likely thinking “It doesn’t matter that I’m pointing the gun at the dog to intimidate the dog because the dog doesn’t know what I’m holding!” Once realizing…

By Capt. Dale Dye, USMC (Ret) One of the bravest guys I ever saw in combat was a skinny little PFC from Kansas. He was the loader on an Ontos and several times in the fighting for Hue City during Tet 68, I saw him bolt out of his cubby hole in the back of that vehicle, ignoring incoming rounds pinging off the armor, to calmly reload one or more of the recoilless rifles that his fellow crew-dogs had just discharged against an enemy strongpoint. He was grinning all the time like some carny running the grift on rubes at…

“I at least want them to deal with the bomb before the ’24 elections,” said Justin Levitt, a former senior policy adviser for democracy and voting rights at the Biden White House who is now a professor at Loyola Law School. Some legal experts have warned that accepting some version of the theory could remake American elections by giving legislatures a much freer hand to set the rules of the road for congressional elections. For instance, states could have potentially unchecked partisan gerrymandering or unfairly alter the rules governing how people can register to vote and cast ballots. Most urgently,…

And now, with Trump expanding his lead over his GOP primary rivals, pollsters are fretting about a bloc of the electorate that has made his support nearly impossible to measure accurately. “It’s looking a lot like Trump is going to be on the ballot” next November, said Democratic pollster Andrew Baumann. “So that is all back with a vengeance.” It’s not that Trump is some mystical force. The problems are practical. In 2020, he drew out significant numbers of people who had rarely — if ever — voted and who either weren’t included in polls or refused to participate in…

PANIC In neighbouring Bangladesh, officials moved to evacuate Rohingya refugees from “risky areas” to community centres, while hundreds of people fled a top resort island. “Cyclone Mocha is the most powerful storm since Cyclone Sidr,” Azizur Rahman, the head of Bangladesh’s Meteorological Department, told AFP. That cyclone hit Bangladesh’s southern coast in November 2007, killing more than 3,000 people and causing billions of dollars in damage. Bangladeshi authorities have banned the Rohingya from constructing permanent concrete homes, fearing it may incentivise them to settle permanently rather than return to Myanmar, which they fled five years ago. “We live in houses…
