OK so this is dumb December 27, 2017

What would we do without professors?

Farmers’ markets are one such environmental improvement that can lead to gentrification, Bosco and Joassart-Marcelli argue, saying farmers’ markets are “exclusionary” since locals may not be able to “afford the food and/or feel excluded from these new spaces.”

These places are literally the cheapest places to buy fresh veg. If you can’t afford them here, you can’t afford them at all. But besides that; many cities provide poor residents with food aid that includes fresh vegetables from places like farmers’ markets.

This social exclusion is reinforced by the “whiteness of farmers’ markets” and the “white habitus” that they can reinforce, the professors elaborate, describing farmers’ markets as “white spaces where the food consumption habits of white people are normalized.”

This is a paradoxical outcome, since farmers’ markets are often established in the interest of fighting so-called “food deserts” in lower-income and minority communities.

There’s no paradox, actually, because the premise is flawed and racist. Actually, it’s okay to ‘normalize’ farm-fresh food consumption habits, regardless of the race of the consumers. Because not eating fresh fruits and vegetables is not normal. Lack of fresh produce in the diet is a key to poor health, and we see these bad health outcomes in statistics on health disparities between rich and poor. Much of these stats are related to poor nutrition in childhood and beyond.

The profs also wrote that 44% of these markets are located in highly-gentrified areas. So…? First of all, businesses need to be within reach of their core customers, or die. If poor urbanites don’t know what to do with vegetables (and they don’t), whose job is that to correct?

Second…what of the remaining 56%?

Has any woman in the history of the world ever really said:

“Come on dudes, let’s get it on!”?

“Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.”

“What I’ve got to do, you can’t be any part of. Ilsa, I’m no good at being noble, but it doesn’t take much to see that the problems of three little people don’t amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world. Someday you’ll understand that.”

Fifty Shades of Cracked and Blistered Redness November 20, 2013

I think some things just aren’t meant to be lent.

If I want that book I’ll just buy it. I’ve got a spot on my shelf next to the Field Guide to Public School Under-Desk Gum Samples and Puss-filled Ingrown Toenails for Dummies

Strange Things are Afoot at the Circle K (and in Utah) August 8, 2013

I believe Russ said something about Utah being a Florida-in-training after the great human meat thermometer caper.

I’m beginning to wonder if he’s on to something.

You’ve probably heard of Miss Riverton a.k.a. Miss Demeanor.  She was arrested for “pranking” people by throwing homemade bombs at them. I guess that’s actually a felony for the blond bombshell. When asked for a statement she simply said she had no interest whatsoever in that “world peace shit.”

Meanwhile, down in Moab, we also have one of those firefighter/police rivalries that got a little out of hand.

  • Firefighter sleeps with police officer’s wife
  • Police officer catches them and pistol whips firefighter
  • Firefighter goes home and stabs himself
  • Police officer tries to get into operating room to “finish the job”

Did I mention that the firefighter is the police officer’s father?

And finally, on a happier note, we have Elders Harrelson and Snipes doing a little missionary “street contacting.” The shirt-and-tied young men asked to play a little ball while doing some missionary work in Texas. One of the lads was on a state champion basketball team and will play wide receiver for a local college after his mission. I would agree, as some have pointed out, that this rim may not be regulation height, but still, let the hijinks begin:




The Epithet Gap July 31, 2013

Posted by geoff in News, slutbags.

I’m afraid. Really afraid. For the first time I think we’re in danger of losing one of key edges in our neverending battles to preserve TJ&tAW*.

I’m talking, of course, about “slutbag.”

It’s awesome. It hit me like “asshat” did, so many years ago (thank you Rachel Lucas). So I’m afeared. Are we losing our edge? How do we ever match “slutbag?” And could we ever dream of someday surpassing it?

Or will we have to accept that we have been permanently outgunned?

I invite, nay encourage, you to try to remedy the situation in the comments. Put your backs into it – it’s for your country.
