    Nowadays the only thing from John’s solo career many people know is “Imagine” (the song, not the album) and perhaps a few of his other hits. Which is too bad, because Plastic Ono Band is a great album. Imagine is pretty good too, though as I said in my reply to Gandalf above, I’m not a big fan of “How Do You Sleep”, and I think even John kind of regretted it later.

    I got the reference, but while musically it’s a good song, the lyrics are vitriolic nonsense. Even John later admitted he didn’t really feel that way about Paul. They even hung out on occasion a few years later, and John admitted to liking and being inspired by some of Paul’s solo material. And the truth is Paul produced more good songs in that decade than John did, though that was in part because he was much more prolific (so he also put out a lot of mediocre filler too). And now at 80, Paul is still putting out good music. It’s too bad we never got to find out what John could have done with a few more decades.

    This is a weird comic; it’s almost like Wuerker has been temporarily been possessed by a MAGA type. These slogans are mostly right wing distortions or exaggerations of what progressives really advocate, except perhaps “defund the police”, and that’s mostly about taking some of the huge amounts of money that are thrown at police departments to militarize them against ordinary citizens (we can see how well that worked in Uvalde) and applying it to measures that might actually improve public safety.

    The word “they” has a very long (as in many centuries, going back before Shakespeare’s time) history of use in English as a singular pronoun, though it is true it has historically been only used as an indefinite singular (as in “who left their book here?”) rather than a definite singular referring to a known person. But the latter is not such a big stretch.

    I still remember the time when Oral Roberts claimed God would “call him home” if he didn’t raise a few million dollars by some deadline. The Onion did a great parody of it in their book Our Dumb Century: “God Kills Oral Roberts For Fundraising Shortfall”.

    My point in this case is that the gradual warming that will make the Earth uninhabitable a billion years from now is completely unrelated to the warming we are experiencing at the present time. The former type of warming is imperceptible on scales of hundreds or even thousands of years. The current warming is far too rapid and substantial to be connected to any long term trends, but it does correlate very well with the sharp increase in greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere over the past century and a half due to human activity. The question is no longer what is happening or why, but what we are going to do about it. If we can manage to solve the problem, we can at least enjoy a livable climate for millions of years more — unless of course something else comes along, like an asteroid strike.

    Go discuss the issue with some real biologists. They’ll tell you gender is much more complex than just what chromosomes someone has. But you obviously prefer to see things in black and white terms, even if the reality is different.

    That doesn’t even make any sense. But just keep holding your Tiki torch of intolerance high.

    “We” as in humanity in general. though some people are more responsible than others.

    Try reading the entire sentence for full context. If you still don’t get it, let me put it this way: We wouldn’t ban someone from competing in sports because they came from a family that was genetically predisposed to being bigger and stronger than most other people, and banning rare cases of trans girls competing makes no more sense than that would.
