That's the "brown people doing mayhem" part of the program . . . occasionally for variety they'll offer up some meth'd out white guys doing mayhem just to prove that they're not pandering exclusively to racism . . . which is true, they pander to every unworthy sentiment.

I live in a part of the country that's very white, so we have a shortage of swarthy crims, our local news tends more to pale scabby guys with neck tattoos, but yeah, here in the land of the abundantly armed local news can usually find some citizen who got in the way of some high speed lead. We also have a local cottage industry in serial killers: the Green River Killer and the most celebrated of them all Ted Bundy. So we do OK in the skells department.

If not, there's always the standby "the tragedy of teen prostitution" . . . though that's a little less flagrant than it was in years gone by.

There was a thing called "sweeps week", when the ratings agencies would audit local stations' viewership -- hard and expensive to do in the pre-internet television era. During this week, local news would reliably run their most lurid stories.

Can this be true?

Native American boy asks his papa "Where do we get our our names from, Papa?"

Papa replies "From our mothers, son. When your sister was born, your mom opened the teepee and the first thing she saw was two doves in the sky, so she named her Two Doves. And when your brother was born, the first thing she saw was a great big grizzly bear rearing up in the forest, so she called him Standing Bear. But what makes you ask the question, Shitting Dog?"

In the Belgian version of this old joke the boy is called Broken Condom.

Actually, most of the local shootings - being brown on brown or black on black - are rarely mentioned.

If a white is involved, it usually gets some attention.

National news, they seem to mentioned the weekend death toll in Chicago once in awhile. Use to be in New York in decades past. And sometimes we get a Black lives matter killing - if it is by a cop.

Attacks on Americans overseas get mentioned every once in awhile. Attacks on European tourists outside the US rarely get air time.

Suicides, unless they are a celebrity or a teenager, don't get press attention.

The murders in Mexico almost never get in our press.

this depends a lot on the social economic status of of either the victim or the perpetrator. If the victim is poor it sort of lowers the chances of that murder crime being covered.

being killed by government official are having that death being ruled Justified is going to be troubling.

I can agree with this. Now down south murder suicides will get covered especially if it's a relationship type situation

I don't think they really want to discuss the role America's drug war has on those murders.

I heard the same joke, but the boy's name was Two Dogs Fucking.

Native Americans might acquire a name by a great deed or attribute,Sometimes they would adopt the name of an admired relative.One of the Lakota who fought at the Little Big Horn was called Wooden Leg,He didn't have a wooden leg,He had taken the name of His uncle-Who also didn't have a wooden leg,He got the name because He could walk so far without tiring that people said He must have wooden legs..

How happy ar you with your currency? I am not talking about the strength of the dollar, just the size of the notes. The only time we see notes that are the same size is when we play Monopoly. The larger the value, the larger the size of the note.. And what about the poor bastards who are partially sighted or blind when all the bills are the same size? My eyesight is fine by the way.
p.s. any doubts I had about our new plastic notes were dispelled when I felt the braille bumps for the blind, and the manager for the local post office says they are much easier and faster to count at the end of the day.

Well, I think they are fine, I've never thought about currency for the blind, since we assume over here that someone nice will count change for them if necessary.

We used to have larger bills many years ago, but what we have now fits nicely into a hip wallet without much crimping and folding.

It's funny that in the last couple decades they've redesigned most of the currency with anti-counterfeiting measures, but the one dollar bill still looks the same. They ought to bring out a new one just so it looks more like the other stuff.
