More Smash and Grab now.

Anyway I guess we are now left with the price of a mule.

Jussie Smollett's trial starts today. This is how we got here

​​​​​​https://www.cnn.com/2021/11/29/us/ju...ere/index.html

​​​​​​Smollett's attorney, Tina Glandian, said in a statement following the six-count indictment that the earlier charges were appropriately dismissed "because they were not supported by the evidence" and said the new attempt to prosecute the actor "is clearly all about politics not justice."

Not sure if this will be streamed live but should be interesting.

Jussie Smollett “is a real victim” of a “real crime,” his attorney said as the ex-“Empire” actor’s trial started Monday, rejecting prosecutors’ allegation that he staged a homophobic and racist attack in Chicago after the television studio where he worked didn’t take hate mail he had received seriously.

This could be much more interesting.

A toxic take. Extremists stoking up the racist fire.

This day in 1955, in violation of segregation laws in Montgomery, Alabama, Rosa Parks refused to surrender her bus seat to a white passenger and was arrested, sparking a 381-day bus boycott led by Martin Luther King, Jr.

But he's trying so hard. He hasn't got as far as answering people directly, but sometimes he writes several paragraphs.

He's a bit of a pet project really.

No, they're words, not speech.

Do you need help understanding the difference?

I think you mean he copies several paragraphs from links he posts. But, hey, at least he's mastered copy & paste now, so all's good.
