Ferguson

Thus saith Thoreau:

I suppose I should have blogged about all the military gear that the cops brought to bear in Missouri this week. But, honestly, after reading Radley Balk[o] for years, it took me some time to realize that for most Americans it qualifies as actual news when stormtroopers with armored vehicles, rifles, and military uniforms take to the streets and go after American civilians.

Ditto.

Thoreau also points to this post by Jennifer Abel, which is worth reading.
