Book of Kells is not Burger King

Submitted: Aug 12, 2015

 Transnational corporate management believes its own propaganda: that it rules the world. Since the quarterly bottom line is its only moral guide, and the pay for top management positions is soooooooooooooo good, Burger King executives can be excused for forgetting that there were life forms before Burger King and claims to glory somewhat different if not superior to the American fast food hamburger. Nevertheless, leave it to an island where the economy is not flourishing as well as it does in Burger King corporate offices to remind the latter that the history of the human spirit did not begin with Insta-Burger King in Jacksonville FL in Nineteen and Fifty-Three. -- blj

It isn't cynicism. That's just some editor's idea of a headline. The article that follows is a good description of the particular nature of Border culture in these violent times and in other times. -- blj

Bob Baker, you'll be greatly missed

Submitted: Jul 18, 2015

Badlands Journal editorial board

 Bob  taught journalism as a high, vitally important practiced in real time on deadline. (What else? He was also a rocking bass player.) No one could teach journalism better. We were immensely lucky to have known him and to have read his magnificent Newsthinking:  Making your Facts Fall Into Place.  He leaves us with the obligation of not letting newsthinking pass with him.

Thank you, Bob, for your passionate curiosity, pursuit of clarity, your bravery, and your magnificent teaching skills.

Say it ain't so, Magnum

 Entertainment Weekly reported on July 6 that the Calleguas Water District has sued Tom Selleck and his wife for stealing truckloads of water from hydrants to irrigate their 60-acre avacado orchard.

According to court documents, the actor or his workers began to steal water from hydrants in 2013 and resumed in March 2015. Calleguas is asking for $21,000 for damages, court fees and costs, and a "preliminary or permanent injunction" against Selleck and his workers from stealing more municipal water. The Selleck estate is located in Westlake Village, near Thousand Oaks, on the Los Angeles-Ventura county line. 

Calleguas is a water wholesaler supplying 18 retail municipal districts in northwestern Southern California, from Simi Valley to Oxnard.

In recent years Selleck has achieved his Hollywood rightwing apotheosis as the star of the TV series "Blue Bloods" as New York Police Commissioner Francis "Frank": Reagan. -- blj

DWR Better Weather Reports Preport

Submitted: May 26, 2015
By: 
Badlands Journal editorial board

 As we were looking at the state Department of Water Resources "Reer"leases this morning we had to think about Mark Twain and the weather. No one, however public spirited and desirous of remaining up-to-date on the World Famous California Drought -- dubious a desire as that is -- should have to start their week with a DWR Press Rerlease without at least a short antidotal quote from Twain on one of his favorite topics and the cause for a number of his greatest works long and short, including the blizzard-induced "Cannibalism in the Cars."

"Buffalo likes Bergman"

Submitted: Nov 22, 2014
By: 
Badlands Journal editorial board

 News of the recent extreme snowfall in Buffalo reminded one member of the Badlands editorial board and former resident of Buffalo of an hour in the early 1970's he once spent in a neighborhood tavern near the intersection of Delavan and Delaware avenues in that city.  He related that when he entered the tavern, about 8 p.m., snow was already nearly to the window sills. The group at the bar was talking movies, specifically those of the Swedish director,  Ingmar Bergman. This was not a crowd of university film majors, just ordinary working men in the predominantly Italian neighborhood. He became fascinated by their encyclopedic knowledge of the films as they went on and on describing to each other scene after scene.  At one point, he  asked what they thought of Fellini.
