Nobody really paid attention to assists before Magic. And then just like that Stockton made it irrelevant again because all he did was throw the ball to Karl Malone on fast breaks and pick and rolls. Not a...

Have you filled out a census before? Hispanic isn't a race so they ask you separately what your race is and whether or not you're Hispanic. You can be white Hispanic (Christina Aguilera and George Zimmerman), black Hispan...

I agree. Every major city is pretty bad at rush hour. What separates them is how long rush hour is and how bad traffic is outside of rush hour. In my experience only NYC and LA have rush hour traffic at random times of the day and on weekends unrelated to any unusual road work or accident. I haven't...

Yeah the 101 is terrible. I was in Hollywood last night and traffic heading home between Hollywood blvd and the 110 was 15-35 mph the whole way. That's not rush hour bad but this was 1030pm on a Sunday!...

I'm not buying that the only choices are that it's completely true or that the police made it up.
My way of thinking is that it's likely that none of the bloods actually went to the police to share such murderous plans. That the police in fact got this information secondhand. If so, to me that's...

Women from Spanish speaking countries can be and indeed often are white. They are also often (but less so) black. Only a racist country like this one would attempt to classify people that speak a certain language as their own race. ...
