Day 78 of Lockdown

I drive more safely when there's food in the passenger seat than when there's a person sitting there...


BLM & Statues

I agree that the statues of slave traders and other racists should be removed from open public areas where they cause offence and angst among the populace.

IMHO they should be preserved for the historical record in something like a museum park (or an actual museum) where people can voluntarily go and learn about them.

BUT, if we are going to have statues of Colston, Hawkins, etc. we should surely have statues of Adolf Hitler, Mussolini, Genghis Khan and Osama Bin Laden also, right?

Most people cheered and partied when the Berlin Wall was torn down by protesters, but when it's a slave trader it's considered improper, vandalism and obscene?
