AN: How dumb can the PO-lice be, to do this to Ms. Fincher? I hope that she wins her lawsuit.

TP: She's not doing the citizens of MS any good, VOTE her OUT!!! NOW!

DK: I couldn't be prouder of these students, for not only,...who they are, but what they represent!! Kudos for receiving this prestigious Award, they certainly are well deserving of it!! WooHoo!!

MU: How simply adorable!!

Ah...Thanksgiving day. Thankfully, we have no rambunctious behavior going on at the table, and the little ones get an opportunity to play outside when dinner is over. It's a good day to be Thankful for many things, with one of them that Tom is doing all right, and will be up on his paws here in no time. For that, I'm very, very grateful. I couldn't have asked for a better group of folks who comment here. Happy Thanksgiving all. TC, take your time, rest/recuperate. Hugs!

AN: I read the article on AlterNet, and it mentions that the drug testing kits those cops use are of questionable accuracy. Were those cops just looking for someone to drag in? Whatever happened to Protect and Serve?

TP: Anybody who can vote for Hyde-Smith after her lynching quip has a soul stuck in the first half of this century.

DK: More power to those kids! They need to get their campaign back into overdrive after the series of mass shootings we have had. Just a series? It's been going on for decades!

Glad to know that TomCat is doing a little better. I hope that he is back in shape to start posting on his blog soon.

" We can all breathe a little easier now that we know Tom is safe at home and someone is looking in on him..." -Thanks for the update Lynn!

7:05 I could quote Goethe's last words ... not that anyone is sure what he meant exactly.

Alternet - If you hadn't shared that, I would have. STILL shaking my head. Some of the other errors law enforcement made with this test: "In Georgia alone, police using the Nark II to field test drugs have wrongfully arrested at least 30 people, including a man with breath mints (positive for crack), a teacher with Goody’s Headache Powder (positive for cocaine), and a couple with vitamins (positive for ecstasy)."

TP - I wish I could be as confident that open racism and support for the Confederacy will sink her in Mississippi. The businesses cited as asking for money back are national businesses playing to the rest of the country (and may be grandstanding at that - have they actually gotten a penny back, or even an IOU?) I'm hopefu; - but we'll have to see.

DKos - I would take Desmond Tutu's opinion on mist things over that of most other peolpe ... and this is certainly no exception. (Signed petition, probably again.)

Universe - Second the nomination!

Happy Thanksgiving everybody! I am glad to know that Tomcat is being taken care of. I have been praying for him. It seems that, even on Thanksgiving, when we have so much to be grateful for, there is still a great deal of work to do to make this a better world.

Alternet: There is something very wrong with the “attitude” of the police force, from deputies to prosecutors, in Georrgia towards drug users and dealers. First they stopped Dasha Fincher’s car because of the “illegal” tint of her car windows, which turned out to be the excuse they needed to stop her because they thought she looked suspicious, then they arrest her because some devise can’t tell the difference between cotton candy and meth, leave her in jail to await the definitive test, which took three months(!) and then prosecution leave her to rot another month after the test concluded it wasn’t an illegal substance. Just for the heck of it, (suspected) druggies aren’t human anyway, right?

TP: Let’s hope that Democratic voters in Mississippi come to their senses enough to realize their personal vote is the one that’ll tip the scales and go out to vote for Epsy in the run-off. And for Republicans to be enough disillusioned in their candidate not to bother to go voting as usual. Then Epsy will have a (good) chance of winning.

DK: They couldn’t have made a better choice. Kudos to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students and kudos to their future.

My Universe: Toby is very cute meowing along, but don’t expect a repeat performance, because he’d rather sleep.

Thanks for the Open Thread, Squatch!

4:22. AlterNet: Georgia has multiple problems; this is just one of many.

TP: More and more, Hyde-Smith sounds like a clone of Agent Orange. Or maybe she's the president of the women's KKK. Either way, despicable.

Good to know TomCat is on the mend. And especially good to know he has more than one angel watching out for him. Thanks for the post, Lynn.
