    Law enforcers' proclivity to deploy their service weapons on young African-American men is now a matter of widespread outrage, due to how often such situations end in killings, even though it's a long-established phenomenon that's prompted one of the fundamentals of black parenting: how to act around cops so that you don't get shot or falsely arrested.

    Crabs, Horses, and Other Local Fauna

    Pickers on the Way: Earlier this week I linked to a Post story about Chesapeake Bay seafood processors awaiting federal legislation that would allow more Mexican workers in to pick crabs. Well, yesterday they got their wish; the legislation, slipped...
