living member of the raccoon family, which includes other animals that
make us go "awww" such as cats, dogs and meerkats. This one had been
seen before by humans, Helgen said, but it had been "a case of mistaken identity." You know he's going to make a cameo in the Ted sequel.

Egypt's interim government and security forces. We deplore violence
against civilians. We support universal rights essential to human
dignity, including the right to peaceful protest. We oppose the pursuit
of martial law, which denies those rights to citizens under the
principle that security trumps individual freedom or that might makes
right. And today the United States extends its condolences to the
families or those who were killed and those who were wounded.

    seeing as how most european royalties made a killing (literally and figuratively) in increasing their fortunes via africa ….a little pay back would be nice

    the biggest offender was leopold II king of the belgians and SOLE OWNER of the CONGO which he raped and made his fortune

    the Brittan raped africa (british empire once holding 17 african countries and pillaging the lot of them) and india etc

  2. jjose712 says

    Malcolm: I’m surprised that it didn’t get a bigger treatment here, because it’s all over the internet

    And russian champion Isimbayeva showed the world that you can be a great champion and a first class bigot at the same time. Shame on her

  3. Cassandra says

    Dogs and cats are not in the same Family as raccoons (Procyonidae), they are in the same Order (Carnivora).

    Just so you will know, and your children will someday know . . .

  4. Buckie says

    The FBI is going after privacy and people who have nothing to do with child porn. It’s despicable and horrific that TR reduces this issue to a trivial little blurb.

    Wake up. You’re next. Silence is DEATH.

    Wake up.

  5. Kyle says

    Yeah, I was expecting a big headline story here on major wrestler Darren Young. After all, it has been a topping trending topic all day and all over ESPN. Yet, Towleroad gives it faint coverage. You have to wonder if they are just that deaf to sports or have some sinister bias at work.

  6. Caliban says

    It is kind of strange that Towleroad reduced the Darren Young story to a blurb. At first I thought, “Well, it’s a pretty new story so someone’s probably writing it now.” But I thought that about 6 HOURS ago!

  7. Butch says

    Coming to the party late, but on an unrelated note, speaking as someone who lives way out in the sticks, it isn’t unusual for people here to seek treatment from a vet. Most of the clinics around here are staffed only part time and the vets are more accessible and cheaper.

    Eric Marques of Dublin,Ireland should be found dead from a severe baseball bat beating. That would be more appropriate than 20 years in an isolation ward of a U.S. prison with all the other skinners and pervs.

    @ Ratbastard

    being a bleeding heart liberal I’d say drop him off in the middle of the sahara dessert without clothes or water

    the .0000000000000000000000000009% chance at survival would satisfy my bleeding heart while also serving justice. Maybe even a castration to make sure if he stumbled across any bedoiuns or Tuareg he wouldn’t try to rape their kids before they could hack him to pieces

    In other words we sort of agree, it is jut the manner of justice that is different

  12. johnny says

    “freaking the eff out”

    Seriously?

    Call me old-fashioned, but with this hip new lingo your blog writer is using, I’m starting to lose my ability to relate to Towleroad these days.

  13. Luke says

    it is suspicious that the Darren Young story is a tiny little substory instead of its own major story, especially since it is a major media story this afternoon. Hmmm, does Towleroad dislike black athletes?

  14. Derrick from Philly says

    @ MOZ’S,

    Thanks.

    If I’d made your thoughtful observation Rick and his army of White supremacist homos would have been all on my case.

  15. tinkerbelle says

    To change the subject—Miley Cyrus, yuk but Terry Richardson, double yuk. Grody, grody, grody, I never thought that trailer trash could get so far.

  16. Moz's says

    @ Derrick

    about the royals, africa, etc ?

    Yeah, though the British royals’ ancestors didn’t benefit as much as Belgium and France …and though not saints they were at least better than Leopold II

    recently reading the news saw that Leopold’s grandson abdicated due to age to make way for his son and thought….FUCKERS! give your billions to Congo, Zaire, etc and keep a few million and disappear to some deserted island

    The estimates on the genocide for ivory and rubber is from 2 to 12 million with many experts saying most likely Leopold II reigned over the murder of 10 million people and countless others who had their hands chopped off for not meeting rubber quotas etc

  17. Moz's says

    Oh and PS

    I highly recommend Mark Twain’s SCATHING satirical pamphlet attacking leopld II’s autrocities

    title = Leopold’s Soliloquy

    Twain wrote it from the point of view of Leopold bemoaning people complaining about the genocide, raping, etc since he was allowing some missionaries in to convert people etc

  18. Justsayin says

    The Frank Ocean article was trite, who gives a rats buttox ?

    In the sidebar of the article, though, was this :

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/08/13/incarceration-rate-per-capita_n_3745291.html?utm_hp_ref=mostpopular

    The USA has more of it’s population in prison than any other nation. We think the US is soooo great, that we’re soooo free, that we have Liberty and Justice, that there’s soooo much to be proud of, because, hey, we’re f*ing AMERICANS.

    It’s all nationalistic horse crap.

    Wake up. YOU’RE next. Silence IS death.

  19. Jake says

    Everyone is thinking this, but I sense this thread doesn’t think stories involving non-Caucasians is a big deal. Why else would they bury the huge Darren Young story when the response from the public and mainstream media was pretty huge, including all the statements from other wrestlers and athletes in support of Darren Young. If it would have been some White guy coming out, they would have had five stories on it already. Racism is alive and well.
