The Chicago Blackhawks have not traditionally used Indian themes ... the mascot is a bird figure and there hasn't been any Indian parodies employed
Only 3 faculty members walked out? That's not as bad as I would have expected.
I'm of an age where my contemporaries have been having heart attacks and cancers and such for a while now. Should I feel chest pains and head to the ER, and there is a white doctor, a black doctor, a Hispanic doctor and an Asian doctor (2 of whom are women), which one would I want? Easy, the best one (whichever that is).
"It goes without saying that the city should not be on the hook to pay the pension for this pervert." Why does it go without saying? A pension is something earned through one's work. One may reasonably argue that California public pensions are poorly crafted...or that someone who commits official misconduct type crimes relating to his public service should forfeit his pension. But why does it go without saying that the pension should be forfeited for a crime unrelated to the work? If he had been an autoworker or utility company powerline repairman, should those pensions have been forfeited?

Letting Detroit Off Easy

The city doesn't own the vacant land ...people (or banks) do. The city doesn't get the money from a sale, and the banks would sell it, if anyone would buy it (but they won't because it is in Detroit)

"Neighboring cities could buy pieces or new cities can be carved out of it." Detroit doesn't own the land within its boundaries. It can't sell it off.
Only the productive (i.e. tax paying) ones will leave. And perhaps a few sensible folk who see the handwrinting on the wall and get out before the place goes Detroit.

And this just focuses on the premiums...the deductables and co-pays will take a big bite too.

I disagree about Bashir. There is stating an opinion that some will disagee with, and there is trashy personal attack that should not be carried on a network. The way Bashir expressed his opinon was worthy of the firing.
Look to the original languages...and the use of the term "porneia" (a catchall of sexual immorality that would include homosexual conduct). Jesus spoke against it several times.
