Really? Darlene to replace Roseanne


Roseanne Barr has become untouchable due to the "Valerie Jarrett/Ambien/Planet of the Apes" controversy, irrevocably contaminated by racism. This presents a problem for ABC, which canceled her revived show but wants the show to return in some form because it had high ratings. The apparent solution is to create a new show focused on the character of "Darlene", the daughter character, which would exclude Roseanne.

Unfortunately, Roseanne Barr owns a chunk of the show, and ABC doesn't want to be seen letting Barr profit from it, so ABC is in talks to buy the show from Barr so she would not technically profit from the broadcasting of it. I guess liberals believe it is morally wrong to rent bedsheets from the Klu Klux Klan, but perfectly ok to buy them.

This overlooks the larger issue of whether people want to see a show centered on "Darlene". Since Roseanne was the center of the show, common sense would suggest otherwise. So does history. Have a look at this list of spinoffs of shows focusing on different characters:

Battlestar Galactica--Galactica 1980

The Dukes of Hazzard--Enos

MacGyver--The Coltons

Barney Miller--Fish

Sanford and Son--Grady

The Rockford Files--Richie Brockelman, Private Eye

How many of the spinoffs do you even recognize? Probably not many. While some spinoffs do work, they tend to have compelling characters in their own right. The transition from Roseanne to Darlene, however, would be less like the transition from Archie Bunker to George Jefferson and more like the transition from Jim Rockford to Richie Brockelman, Private Eye.

It's amazing how people in broadcast networks who are responsible for budgets in the hundreds of millions of dollars do not have this kind of common sense. I think it shows the timidity and lack of imagination of studio executives who fear trying new shows because they are so out of touch with American tastes (and American ideas) that they have no idea what would be popular.

Skyrocketing crime rate in California called "good progress" after jails emptied


Here's a thought experiment: what happens if you release criminals, a lot of them, from jail?
If you asked a liberal in California, they would tell you that these criminals were unjustly jailed in the first place (think racism on the part of liberal inner city judges, juries, and prosecutors) and that these unjustly imprisoned would return to become productive parts of society.

The National Guard deployment to the border is a sham


Remember when President Trump's supporters were outraged when Trump signed a budget which prevented him from building a border wall? Trump was so stung by the criticism that he decided to show he was tough on border security by sending the National Guard to the border. The only problem is, restrictions on the Guard has made their participation almost useless.

It always amazes me how when I read articles about people claiming asylum, their stories are almost identical: gangs threatened them in their home country!

Everyone had nearly identical stories as if they were coached, all repeating the same words they hoped would get them a free ticket into America.

San Rafael, in wealthy Marin County just north of San Francisco, is building a bike path near a new train line.
