Madison oh Madison

If it's news, but not politics, then it goes here.

Yeah - didn't think so.


Does Muhammad have a common middle initial?

Mark this moment, forons. Meade has finally gone native and from here on out we should all observe the occasion on an annual basis.

He's one of us now.

We know because after much self-work, Meade has at long last attained that peculiar kind of 27-square-mile local coherence that's surrounded by a wider reality, the kind that comes from doubling back on one's own perspective just to confuse your detractors and diving too deep into intricately pointless community debates to deliver some esoteric sub-point no one notices.

He's committed. He's engaged. He's indigenous.

Welcome, Meade the Madisonian! You are IN.

At first I was just going to ignore you as usual Meade, but then I thought I'd better set you STRAIGHT. I have respect for all religions.
There is only one religion, though there are a hundred versions of it.

-George Bernard Shaw

Good guesses Henry and wack wack. Another guess, if it was "Holy Spirit," wouldn't it be Jesus H.S. Christ?

Prior to 1964 it was Marcellus, but after that he rarely needed his first name let alone a middle one.

Abū al-Qāsim Muḥammad ibn Abd Allāh ibn ʿbd al-Muṭṭalib ibn Hāshim - more or less.
I believe Abu means 'father of' and ibn means 'son of'. I doubt you can find a recognizable three initial abbreviation though.

Might depend on which sense of the word "do" you mean here, Larry.

And now a shooting in broad daylight

It's just Meadowood though, no big deal.

Gee willikers, it's too bad there weren't more armed passers-by who could join the free-for-all. It could have been quite the law-abiding spectacle of carnage.

Gosh golly, it's a roving gang issue not a gun control issue.

But keep thinking gun control would have prevented this if it makes you feel better.

Oh yes: " ... then only criminals would have guns" and so on.
We've seen where that kind of facile thinking has got us – while the rest of the first world looks on in horror and dismay.
