  1. OS πŸ™‚

    Now that I’ve dispensed with the pleasantries all I need to do is to keep myself from stepping into cow patties of my own making. lol

  2. In November there’s a major election here in Tulsa for Mayor.

    I assume the current Mayor was concerned enough for retaining his job that he had his police chief issue the apology below in hopes of appeasing certain voters.

    I consider myself a bit more then a novice when it comes to history yet recently I think I stumbled on to one of the major reasons for the Tulsa race riots.

    Yes, there was racism on the street level, but behind that one of the likely main reasons was the local black community was doing most all of the business, banking among themselves.

    Was it the other bankers/biz want to take a major cut of their biz?

    I does have the ring of a compelling motive for destroying the 1921 black communities business practices of the day.

    Regardless, it’s a good thing for the police chief & the Mayor to attempt to put this issue to rest.

    Tulsa police chief apologizes for department actions during 1921 race riot
    Chief Jordan says officers didn’t protect citizens


  3. Thank you Professor Turley for providing this forum.

    Since I believe you are one of the finest legal minds of our time, excellent demeanor, with a keen sense of humor makes this site even more important for every citizen.

    I’ve gotten to know some of your guest posters a little bit better & even though I find a few times disagreeing with their opinions they seem a very respectable lot.

    And thank you for the hat tip.

    One of the concepts I was given from the movie Cast Away was that none of us really know for sure what tomorrow’s tide will wash ashore yet that by remaining optimistic it always helps us get where we need to be.

  4. A couple more posts on climate change oughta get you to 20 mill. Thanks, Joe! Or we could all do like Nick and submit each sentence one at a time.

  5. Thank you for all you do, Professor Turley! And for all the guest bloggers! You are moral, ethical people, and catch important stories that the major media miss or ignore. And thank you for the lighter, humorous stories — much needed these days! And, of course, thanks to all the commenters — I have learned much.

  6. I will point out that the Congress wants to regulate our rights by defining what a Journalist is and thus exclude us bloggers from First Amendment protection. When we blog here were are assembling; we are exercising our free speech; we are petitioning our government for redress of grievances; we are a free press. Stick up for your rights. Vote out the likes of old lady Feinstein, age 80, for trampling on our rights. Live free or die. Oops. What did I say. I am older than Feinstein.

  7. Another milestone. I am honored and happy to be a small part of Jonathan Turley’s Blog, for he represents the best traditions of American Legal thought and deed.
