22 February 12020 is Independence Day in Saint Lucia. It is also Marni Nixon’s birthday. In the news I see that Patriot Prayer speaker Jeremy Christian has been convicted on all counts for exercising his first amendment “free speech” rights by stabbing three men (two of them fatally) on a Portland MAX in 2017. The North Portland comic-book seller will now spend the rest of his life in prison. (That’s what being a murderous thug gets you, guy. Enjoy.) While I’m sure that President Trump regards this piece of garbage as a «very fine person» and would love to give him a pardon, that’s not an option, as he was convicted under Oregon—not federal—law. Memo to Jeremy (in the only language he would understand): here’s hoping you get stabbed in the eye with a homemade shiv, jackass. You got a painful life ahead of you unless somebody does you a favor, motherfucker, and puts you out of your goddamn misery. Signed: a Trimet rider.
