A friend in Dallas sent me this photo of a Confederate flag flask he took last night at a Walmart in Dallas, Texas. The Civil War ended almost 150 years ago. Why is Walmart still selling this?

From the front page of today’s New York Times comes this story on subway dancers. Personally, I don’t mind most of them, although I rarely give them money. I’ve never seen anyone get hit in the face by their flying feet, but they do come awfully close sometimes. The main issue for me is the noise, especially if I’m trying to listen to my own music on my headphones. Still, I don’t know if they should be arrested for this, and if so, I certainly don’t think it should be treated as a serious crime.

So I was in the laundromat this morning (yes I do my own laundry) and I looked up on the TV and saw this. Apparently they call it “Mud-Wrestling Monday” on the Jerry Springer Show.
