Two tweets, repackaged here

Posted both of these to Twitter over the last couple of days. Both kind of sum up my thoughts on things going on right now.

1. So yeah, violence only begets more violence. Sure. But why are you criticizing the violence that was begotten, instead of the violence that did the begetting? The riots are a natural and inevitable outcome of George Floyd's murder by the police.

2. You know, I hate the notion of looking to Reagan for anything, but while firing all the air traffic controllers was vile, I'm not sure what the downside of doing that for the police is. The baby/bathwater ratio seems to justify it.
