Put fascists and sociopaths on your ignore list.

Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.

The Heir to the (evil) Empire, Hank Steinbrenner passed away. He was only 63 but I had read he has been having health problems for a long time now.

Former NFL QB Tavaris Jackson died in a car accident. He was only 36. That is a damn shame.

Coincidentally, I've been watching some old NFL games, and saw him in Favre vs. The Packers I back in 2009 just yesterday.

Rick May, most famous for Soldier in TF2 and Peppy Hare in Star Fox (...and also I remember his line as Genghis Khan in Age of Empires II), passed of coronavirus yesterday.
