Miss Marple said we are all alloted three score and ten years, and like Miss Marple I shall soon be overdrawn.
Now, having lived 70 years, I will use this blog to record my observations and try to answer the question, "Is the hokey-pokey really what it's all about?

JUDGE DECLARES MISTRIAL OF BALTIMORE POLICE OFFICER
I am not a conspiracy
theorist (well maybe I am,) but it seems to me that of the six defendants, the
Baltimore police officer that was picked to be tried first was the least
likely to be convicted.
Here we have
a black man being tried for the death of a black man – less controversial than
a white officer, so less chance of sparking violent demonstrations… I don’t
know – I’m just asking?
Of the six
defendants there was a white Lieutenant and a black female sergeant present at
the time; so why try the lowly patrolman first?
Is this a case of collusion between the prosecutor’s
office and the city government looking to keep a lid on the backlash? Was charging the black patrolman first a
conscious choice orchestrated by city officials Maybe I'm wrong... the Ol'Buzzard
