The Week in Review – August 15

This was a pretty busy week for the news, but most of it has been depressing.

  • Ferguson, MO went from being treated like a war zone to being under the control of Ron Johnson, who told the Post, “When I see a young lady cry because of fear of this uniform, that’s a problem…We’ve got to solve that.”
  • The police officer who killed Michael Brown has been identified as Darren Wilson.
  • Robin Williams passed away, and people saw that as good reason to send pictures of his body (photoshopped or real) to his daughter on Twitter. Because people can be evil.
  • The most expensive car in the world, a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO, was just sold for $38 million. That would buy me a lot of Audi R8s, but apparently the sale price was “disappointingly” low. Whatever.
  • Finally, this TSA video made me laugh so you should watch it, too.
