• Beatlex : Hi Outlandish! I was x27 over there,cancelled my account and am never going back

  • outlandish : I just signed up yo say hi! Some of you might know me from Huffington Post so I’m late to the party but Happy New year.

  • choicelady : Well folks, it’s now 9:45 pm, and I think I’m alone here. So to any REALLY late attendees – sorry to miss you, and we hope to see you NEXT Friday on Vox. We had a very good evening, so join us next week for yet another rip roaring discussion. Good night to all – and if you’re in the path of a storm, please stay warm and safe.

  • choicelady : Beatlex – you still here?

  • choicelady : Good night KT and thank you – that IS one of my faves! See you tomorrow and sweet dreams. Hope the storm passes OH by this time. Stay safe and WALK carefully anyway! Big HUG to you!

  • KillgoreTrout : «link»

  • KillgoreTrout : Well my dear friend, it’s time I say toodle loo, for now. I’ll leave you with this great standard!

  • choicelady : Luckily for me, the cops took care of it all. But justice was NOT always served as too short sentences were given. We do our best as jurors, but they have biases, can be swayed, and then what? On the other hand I once was at an anti-death penalty rally as a speaker, and the man facing the injection three days later was on the phone. I do believe he was innocent – and the night he died I could not sleep. I think those family members he supposedly killed were pleased – I was horrified. I could NOT stop thinking about him. It was awful. I know I could kill in self defense. I don’t know if I could under other circumstances.

  • KillgoreTrout : I know you do Cl. Again, I just hope that I’ll never be faced with such a horrible choice.

  • choicelady : Cheerio! Stay COOL!

  • choicelady : KT – I have had reason in my life to know these things not for family but for friends. The visceral reaction – even unto death of the perp – is very real. I get it.

  • Fergie1 : Oh I really better get out of here, I keep hitting send before I’ve finished and I haven’t had a drop of liquid gold yet. So one and all – it’s been great. If I type everyone’s name here, I’ll miss saying cheerio and stay warm and safe where ever you are.

  • KillgoreTrout : Fergie, have a great weekend. Hope to see you tomorrow.

  • choicelady : Fergie – drinks, too.

  • KillgoreTrout : I know CL. I hope I will never find myself in that position, let alone my mom. The social contract must be upheld. But again, if it were to happen somewhere, sometime. I wouldn’t shed a tear.

  • choicelady : Fergie – next time please know you’re encouraged to bring popcorn or a treat of your choice. We all do and then live vicariously through each other’s selections! LOL!! Thank you for being here – you add a hugely interesting dimension!

  • choicelady : Fergie – this is a ‘dream job’ (unpaid) to be able to talk with everyone. I do have to pick up the empties though…only drawback.

  • Fergie1 : Cl, thank you for ‘hosting’ this Vox PoP. You’re terrific.

  • choicelady : Good afternoon to you, too, Fergie! Lovely having you here.

  • Fergie1 : Good Night (afternoon here) to all you wonderful people.

  • choicelady : KT – your reaction is totally honorable! But it’s why we have juries and don’t let family extract vengeance. The feelings however are utterly justified!

  • KillgoreTrout : Have a wonderful weekend Sabreen. Hope to see you tomorrow with your usual great music picks.

  • KillgoreTrout : Sure CL. Stupid trends are not race based. Often times white kids want to immitate black kids. It’s all horrifying. Certainly a breach of any respectable social contract. But then, so is vigilantism. All I kow is that if someone did this to my 83 year old mom, it would take a train to stop my vengence. And several cops!

  • choicelady : Good night, Sabreen – wonderful having you here!

  • Sabreen60 : Well good people, I’m out too. Y’all take care. Ya here!

  • Fergie1 : I KNOW Murph – I was pulling your leg!

  • choicelady : Murph – we grow and learn from you every time you’re here. Thank you for everything you’ve done AND helped us understand!

  • Sabreen60 : Take care Pink!

  • choicelady : KT – I see your point. Wonder how, if the knockout person is white, someone will view the situation if they have killed an elderly Black woman? It has happened that it is white kids. It’s all despicable no matter who, no matter what.
