He also refused a motion by the press to make public the identity of the jurors. Seems sensible.

Somebody better be going to jail for threatening a federal judge.

Jeez, yeah. Imagine being on that jury and your name being made public. Yikes.

Was on a jury where we convicted a guy on a double-rape charge. He had a rather large extended family that ran in, let's say, less than savory circles.

I had two reporters shoving the mics in my face with cameras asking for my name and wanting me to answer questions the second we exited the courtroom.

Fuck. That. I respect journalist trying to do their job, but fuck off with potentially jeopardizing my safety so you can get your 6 o'clock headline.

Fifteen ultra-Orthodox Jewish schools haven’t let New York City officials investigate allegations that they don’t provide enough secular education, according to a letter Wednesday from the city schools chief.

Fifteen ultra-Orthodox Jewish schools haven’t let New York City officials investigate allegations...

"Haven't let"? How is that an option? If they don't comply, they should get shut down.

Some of these kids barely speak English. Anything beyond basic math is unknown. No knowledge of history, except what's in the Torah. It's shocking they have their completely isolated society within NYC.

Shut them down. Problem solved.

They also impersonate police officers and patrol their neighborhoods, illegitamately claim their households as religious temples to dodge taxes, collect income from families to expand neighborhood and contribute to political campaigns, ostracize anyone who thinks outside of their ideology or is unfit (mentally ill) to be a part of their ideology, blackmail families into complying with their ideology, and many other heinous bullshit. Does this sound like a cult yet or do we need to get into the covering up of countless crimes ranging from domestic violence to fraud?

Mormons don't want you calling them Mormons anymore

Mormons don't want you calling them Mormons anymore

Because it's too close to morons?

No one is going to stop saying Mormons or LDS church. No one is going to call it "the Church" because it sounds one-true-church-y. No one is going to use the whole fucking name, because it's ridiculous.

I mean, I can insist that people call me Miss Fancypants Splendid Delightful Tit, MD" every time they refer to me, but they're just going to keep saying SplendidTit because it's easier.

Should have thought about that before they named one of their fake historical figures “Moroni”
