The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

The End of #Me Too?

For John, BLUFThe Stephen Colbert video on the encounter between Reporter Jim Acosta and the White House Intern trying to retrieve the White House microphone.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

From The Althouse Blog, by Professor Ann Althouse, 10 November 2018.

Here is the lede, mostly:

This is an important cultural moment.  There is now a comic meme about being physically violent to a woman.  Notice how it's upping the violence that makes it funnier and funnier.  It ends with a "Road Runner" type image where a bag of "intern feed" is handed to the woman and then a giant weight falls on her.  Have we ever seen mainstream comedy like that before?  We're laughing at a woman getting crushed to death.
I didn't include the last part of the paragraph.  While it is spot on, it is a little indelicate.  Worth reading the whole thing, and the comments.

Hat tip to the InstaPundit, who sent me to the The Althouse Blog.
