Opinions in the Shorts: Vol. 417

A Frank Angle’s OITS posts are always thought-provoking. This one was particularly so for me because of its link to “ranked-choice voting”, and a fascinating link about the speed of light. Enjoy!

Like much of the country, winter has arrived in Cincinnati earlier than normal – and with prolonged temperatures delivering new daily records. Brrrrrrrr ….

James Brown, the Godfather of Soul, is next to take the stage for a weekend concert. Schedule: Next Saturday, 23rd November 1:00 AM (Eastern US)

I continue to enjoy going through my blog closet. On the other hand, that cupboard is on the way to being bare.

I had my first grapefruit of the new season. With still a bit of bitterness that sweeter grapefruits do not have, I’ll try again after in two weeks.

By the time 2020 starts, and era will end – the last Sears store in Cincinnati will close. Just think – they could have been the Amazon of today before Amazon was Amazon.

    Thank you, Jim. I welcome your readers to stop by and comment.


  2. I’m glad he mentioned the hideous Ohio Student Religious Liberties Act, Jim. As WaPo discussed, the language in the law is preposterous, as interpreted by any sober person. Despite Republicans denying it,

    “…Gary Daniels, chief lobbyist for the American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio, said the measure does in fact allow students to answer homework questions and other assignments incorrectly, based on religious doctrine rather than science — and not be marked wrong. Cleveland.com quoted him as saying: “Under HB 164, the answer is ‘no,’ as this legislation clearly states the instructor ‘shall not penalize or reward a student based on the religious content of a student’s work.’ ”

    This embarrassing law is, of course, designed to protect creationism and climate change denialism. Ohio should advance to the 21st century, but that will require ridding the state of Republican governance. Unlikely anytime soon, unfortunately.

    And I’m glad A Frank Angle linked to the ranked choice voting article you promoted. Wish more people would learn about that common-sense method. Keep up the good work of arguing for it.
