    I have a Traeger, and it's great for smoking food. For regular items like burgers or steaks, stick to a traditional grill.

    Gosh, it sure is "fun" to start getting emergency alerts for things other than tornadoes.

    Stay safe y'all.

    I live in Grandview and can smell the tear gas from downtown wafting through my window as I type this. I'm guessing the 10pm curfew isn't going over real well.

    CPD hasn't been helping their cause as of late.

    They went right past where I live this afternoon. Literally, down the street. There's at least one photo out there on Twitter in which you can see my car parked in the driveway.

    Has Columbus announced any potential police reforms?

    Check out Zach Klein on Facebook. He's the city attorney. He posted what I assume is an official proposal or recommendation. Not going to post in here because I don't want this to become a discussion of its merits.

    I am very interested to see if I can find out why 34-53 foot long charter buses just drove past my building downtown.

    And why my co-worker's husband was called in by DHS today when he wasn't supposed to work from the office until July.

    Since the statues of the Civil War leaders (both Union and Confederate) are now being torn down, it would only be right for the Blue Jackets to acknowledge the inherent racism in a team name with ties to slavery and change it to something more suitable for the current times.

    If we are going to live in a place called Flavortown, then I would suggest changing the team name to the Flavortown Flavor Flavs. Goodbye to a team name with ugly, racist overtones and Hello to one that pays homage to a black life. The team jersey's cannon logo can be replaced by a large clock on the chest. Also, the firing of the cannon after a home team goal will be replaced by a statue of Flav yelling, "Yeahhhhh, Boyyyyyy".

    If our team can't get with the times and make these changes to prove they're not racist, then I don't think that I in good conscience can follow them any more.

    *end sarcasm*

    How would the Blue Jackets be racist? We were in the north and fought FOR the freedom of slaves.

    Les is a strange bird. Some speculation that he was gay (just used his wife as a beard), so that is only thing I found odd about the story.
    But pretty well known to get to Les in past you had to go thru Epstein. So it was a much tighter relationship than Les is saying, and that will likely come out with witnesses.

    My post was meant to be satirical; you and I think alike on this topic but some in our society don't agree with us, as demonstrated by them tearing down statues memorializing Union leaders and Abolitionists who wanted to end slavery.

    I understand that The Emancipation Memorial is next on the agenda of "woke" people to destroy tonight.

    Jokes aside, I think this is a fascinating subject. We have a lot of complex historical figures in our history. How do we commemorate them for the good things they did while simultaneously condemning the bad things they did? Should we somehow contextualize statues?
