Kyrie Irving Is a Mad Genius

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 22:31:00 GMT2017-07-22T22:31:00Z

Kyrie Irving is a man of remarkable talent. His handles are nonpareil and his ability to finish at the rim around, amongst, under, and betwixt defenders is breathtaking in the most literal sense—you gasp and hold the oxygen inside your lungs until you see the slow-motion replay or turn blue, whichever comes first. He’s part yo-yo champ, part contortionist, an offensive whiz kid who plays three-card Monte with a basketball. He also might be crazy because he’s decided he’s sick of playing with LeBron James.

Kyrie Irving of the Cleveland Cavaliers reacts against the Golden State Warriors in Game 4 of the 2017 NBA Finals on June 9 in Cleveland.

The Nicest Thing You Can Say About Sean Spicer Is That He Was a Bad Liar

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 02:58:00 GMT2017-07-22T02:58:00Z

Shakespeare’s Marc Antony posited that people are remembered for their evil acts, while the good ones are forgotten. In American public life, it is sometimes the opposite: We see their flaws while they’re in power, their virtues only in retrospect.

Definitely comic, possibly tragic.

Criminal Pardon

Fri, 21 Jul 2017 22:20:00 GMT2017-07-21T22:20:00Z

The Washington Post reported on Thursday that President Donald Trump has been asking advisers about his power to pardon aides, family members, and even himself. It’s fair to say that such efforts by the president would lead to a full-scale constitutional crisis and potentially mass protests in the streets. If the Republican Party failed to initiate impeachment proceedings in the face of a string of pardons meant to protect the president and his inner circle, might there be any possible consequences for Trump? Constitutional scholars say yes: If Trump abuses his presidential powers to pardon in a way that obstructs justice, he could be prosecuted under a future administration.

A Tennessee Jail Is Offering Vasectomies for Reduced Prison Time

Fri, 21 Jul 2017 21:56:00 GMT2017-07-21T21:56:00Z

A horrifying report bubbled up from Sparta, Tennessee, this week: A standing order by Judge Sam Benningfield of White County will allow the White County jail to offer to remove 30 days of jail time from inmates’ sentences as long as they undergo voluntary birth control procedures—temporary birth control implants in the case of female inmates, permanent vasectomies in the case of male inmates. Benningfield signed the order in May, and by the time News Channel 5 of Tennessee reported on it on Wednesday, 38 male inmates and 32 female inmates had agreed to the processes.

Inmates are not able to give informed consent for voluntary birth control procedures.
