There just HAS to be news worthy of discussion that does not mention or allude to the current POTUS.  He is NOT the center of the universe.

I think the first post already violates this thread's stated charter?

Here is a current event on a topic of great concern for all Nauvoodles: the safety & wholesomeness of your marijuana supply.  ::)

We could rename the other thread "Current events with Trump" or something. Or have a "Current Events US Politics Edition".

At any rate...

How about the nurse  in SLC that was assaulted and wrongfully detained by one officer, and then had another in her face telling her she broke the law and they weren't wrong? I am a major LEO supporter... I've had them in my family, I've gone to church with them, the ones in my town are top-notch. But these two guys... wowee. Not sure whether I'm more disgusted by the one that had a physical temper tantrum at the expense of a nurse, or the one that was super slimy and in her face trying to talk her into believing she was wrong. The whole thing is upsetting.

Here's the long version, that shows the cop talking to her at the end (making my stomach turn):

To make it even better, the victim they were trying to illegally take blood from is himself a police officer (reserve) whose chief has thanked the nurse for protecting his rights. https://www.eastidahonews.com/2017/09/rigby-police-chief-thanks-nurse-for-standing-firm-in-protecting-officers-rights/

When there's a mythos of combat between officers and the public influencing police policy, instead of community policing, things are only going to escalate as long as that continues, in my opinion.

I actually considered saying "You-Know-Who," but I didn't want anyone to think I meant Tom Riddle.

And, yeah, I have to live with the perpetual irony that the title of the thread is repeated at the top of every response, and You-Know-Who's name will therefore likely appear more often on this thread than it does on the "Current Events" thread.

 :P

Edit:  Just asked moderators to change the name of the thread.  My opening post explains who "You-Know-Who" I'm referring to.

OK, I changed the thread title.  I hope you don't mind I changed your suggested wording slightly.  And I hope no one is offended I stole a bit from Harry Potter.... O:-)

around here YKW is That Awful Man.

Anyone watching Mumbai and area flooding? we have parents of friends there so are quite interested, then the building fell down.  If this is not the last days I wonder what it will be like.

BBC just announced  William and Catherine are epected number three. :)

I think that is a matter of opinion - yours, mine, theirs, & HIS.

The flooding in Mumbai is tragic, & it hasn't gotten a lot of attention here. Jana, are you saying you were in touch with the people you know there & then the building fell that they were in? :( Prayers going forth for those affected there.

we are close to their son. we do not know how his aging parents are faring. we are waiting for news. I doubt they were in the decrepit building. I just meant that the flood was bad enough and on top of that awfulness this really unfit building collapsed.

I just saw a schematic of the mountain west fires.   gosh. Just gosh  biblical.

Remember Aung San Suu Kyi and how we all thought she deserved the Nobel and how noble she was for being under arrest all those years and standing for something? Well she's the boss of the country now and as far as I know has done NOTHING to help the poor refugees that are fleeing death and rape and fire and all in her country.

what????!!!!  I say let's take back her Nobel.

I am so chagrined that she does nothing.
