Where did you store your dignity? And does this mean you are getting an Apple watch?
There was ample room on the Databank for my dignity. Sometimes, after getting comments from the cool kids, I’d dial up my dignity on the Databank and remember who I was.
You know what this summer was? This summer was ISIS, beheadings, missing airplanes, airplanes shot down, religious minorities being persecuted, black Americans being persecuted, militarized police, Iggy Azalea having the “song of the summer,” Robin Williams hanging himself, and finding out Hello Kitty isn’t even a fucking cat.
2014 was the summer of existentialism, and it’s the kind of summer and cultural climate during which we should all discuss the matter of dying sad, scared, confused, and alone more often.
It was a lesson in how a department sets the tone as it polices — either as an occupying force fighting an enemy, as was seen Wednesday night through a haze of tear gas, or as members of a community in crisis.
I don’t know who this Capt. Ron Johnson is, but this is leadership.
