It is now 3 weeks since Michael Brown was murdered by Ferguson PD Officer Darren Wilson. Officer Darren Wilson still has not been arrested, charged, or even brought to prison or court for the murder of Michael Brown.
Be….cause the assailant is dead. Case closed

It’s like two different species.
I’m calling bullshit, because here’s why. What iphone is I. Existence that is the same size as a 32 oz Nalgene bottle? The proportions are all fucked anyway.
Deschutes “Mirror Mirror”
Mirror Mirror is an oak-aged English Barleywine with limited release spaced out every 5 years or so. The heart of this brew consists of a double batch of Mirror Pond Pale Ale, of which 50% then goes on to be aged in retired Pinot Noir, Tempranillo and Malbec barrels for ten months. Aromas are malt-forward, suggesting caramel sweet bread and cinnamon rolls. Sweetness is like brown sugar with heavier notes of maple syrup. Booze gives obvious fusel notes.
The palate opens in a flood of sweet, caramelized barley with that classic Barleywine flavor. Hops rise with modest orange-citrus highlights. A big body of dark fruits touches on dried apricot, raisin, plum, and date. The barrel-aging has a drying effect with tart, vinous qualities reminiscent of cherries and tannins like red grape skin. A spicy quality hits, then hops re-emerge with herbal bitterness to help counterbalance the heavy sugar weight. Malts develop a mild roast with weak hints of chocolate. Final remarks give details of oak and caramel popcorn. The mouthfeel carries soft carbonation over a full, creamy body that ends a little dry and sticky. Sweetness stops just shy of cloying. Lingering bitterness does a great job at persistently masking the alcohol.
Overall, I think this a finely tuned, exceptional Barleywine. Although the barrel has a restrained impact, it adds a unique flavor that bumps the complexity a few points. As it warms, the hops and booze land a bit more front-and-center. Sweetness is right on target in terms of style, coming to a pleasant agreement with the hoppy bitterness. The hop level itself is about right for my taste, but a little age would probably do wonders. I recommend it to malt lovers! If you find a bottle, buy it.
dropped a bottle of this on my kitchen floor. Smelled good tho.
Saturday in Ferguson. Aug. 23rd.
When I saw the Post Dispatch today the main section of the front page was OBVIOUSLY glaring enough. BUT LETS NOT IGNORE THE NEXT PART…
On the bottom right, you can just barely see it, there’s an article about how the Chief says “Qualified Black Applicants Hard to Find”.
YOU LYING SACK OF SHIT. God damn this man infuriates me.
Nope. Wrong again. Go ask a black police officer right now what the most common name is he’s called. That name will be “sellout”. Its so commonplace in African American culture to despise the police that they go to these lengths. Yes black applicants are very hard to find. In our city we’ve hired young black recruitment officers to try to change this trend. But alas, they too are “sellouts”.
If you’ve never done life saving CPR, you probably don’t know that it’s pretty physically demanding. I mean, I’ve done harder things, but it’s pretty rough. So when we loaded “mama” on the stretcher with pulses and she’s now “doing fine”, guess who the family thanked? Jesus. I’m a pretty humble dude when it comes to my job, but to not even recognize the life saving efforts performed in your living room kinda pisses me off.
