PLANET VALENTI NEWS AND COMMENTARY

(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, MONDAY JUNE 1, 2020) — It wasn’t enough that the coronavirus put the World’s No. 1 economy into the shredder. Now we have what’s left — Left — being further pulverized by the “protests” following the death of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis, MN police. If these are protests, THE PLANET will lead the NFL in rushing next year.

Cities whose populaces have no more connection to Minneapolis than The Sphinx has to a sphincter nonetheless have seen their “citizens” use Floyd’s death as the excuse to exercise the worst impulses that reside in the human heart. The residue after the “protesters” have finished with the burning, looting, and vandalism isn’t so much the char of burned-out buildings. It’s more  the residue of scum, the human tar that upchucks from souls who chose to drink their own poison and see themselves as eternal “victims.”

The good news, though, is that the “protesters,” whose deprivations as children left them with a blank check for mindless violence and destruction, have knocked COVID-19 off the front pages and out of the headlines. Because it’s not the mainstream media’s topic du jour, we can now declare the virus over. Hallelujah, brothers and sisters! The forest pine fell in an empty forest. No heard it, so it didn’t fall.

Imagine that: A pandemic cured by reverse-racist rioting! What a country! How else could 400 lost souls pointlessly gather in Park Square Saturday sitting and standing shoulder to shoulder, neck to neck, with guaranteed immunity? Or as PLANET correspondent KERMIT said, they had they “We Are The World Moment.”

From The Boring Broadsheet:

Berkshire District Attorney Andrea Harrington, who came with her young son, was feeling a similar sentiment. “It’s actually comforting to be here together on this afternoon,” she said. In an interview as she walked toward the park, Mayor Linda Tyer said she wanted to be with the community. “I’m just still in utter heartbreak over what happened to George Floyd. It’s important, in my heart, to stand here with the people in our city and in our county and express solidarity in our demand for justice. Look at what they’ve been able to pull off in a short time,” she said of event organizers. As the park filled, the noise level rose. “It’s good to see all the horns beeping,” said Barry Clairmont, Tyer’s husband. “People get it.”

No, Barry. People DON’T “get it.” It would only be “good” if folks followed your wife’s order on social distancing and stayed away from the “look-at-me, 15-minutes-of-fame” demonstrations. You guys feeling all smug and self-righteous do this while your city falls apart … what a picture. After it’s over, the limousine liberals retreat to the gated communities, the sincere-but-gullible go back to their hovels, and the dish runs away with the spoon.

In Syracuse, NY, mayor Ben Walsh issued a curfew from 8 p.m. to 7 a.m. to keep the city safe. County executive followed, giving orders for all citizens in Onondaga County to be off the streets during those same hours. That’s leadership. In Pittsfield, the mayor and other officials gave the crowds their Binkies.

In Atlanta, mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms said “This is not a protest. This is chaos.” In Pittsfield, our D.A. and mayor sang an off-key “Kumbaya” while on the West Side and Morningside, shots rang out, junkies shot up, drug lords profited, gimme-girls spent their welfare checks, bums littered North Street, and The Kapanskis worried about paying their taxes while both of them were out of work from the virus.

———- ooo ———-

The reaction and overreaction to Floyd’s death illustrates once again that as a species, humanity has progressed in reverse, kind of like an Army getting its butt kicked and announcing retreat as an “advance to the rear.” Our euphemisms have always sugar-coated the realities we can’t bear to face, as Eric Blair pointed out in “Politics and the English Language.” The market didn’t tank. It experienced a “sustained equity retreat.” Street gangs and thug-scum aren’t destroying decency. They’re “protesting.”

THE PLANET says “Bull.”

We made the point on The Weekend Edition, and it bears repeating. Human beings can’t handle freedom, but we express outrage when governments turn authoritarian. Politically, governmentally, and most of all historically, authoritarian has been the ONLY organizational set-up that has worked. Granted, it does not work forever, but it at least provides the framework to limit the invariable human tendency to turn freedom into license. Authority provides the only workable foundation for civilization and society.

This happens, of course, only in groups, and what is society — our communities, villages, towns, cities — but gatherings of folks who have profited from the species-old wisdom that survival, continuance with some form of prosperity and security, can only be achieved via The Social Contract? Alone, we can’t build communities. Together we can. That’s also how we destroy them.

That pact, however, has proven of little interest to the selfish “protesters, who have exchanged their COVID face masks for pink pussy hats.

Let the world go insane. THE PLANET shall remain “That Individual,” which are the two words we want on our tombstone.

There are over 10 millions arrest per year, that’s one every 3 seconds. Considering blacks commit 8 times more crime as whites, improper use of force against blacks by police, to a serious degree, is actually a very small percentage of arrests, and in almost all cases, the arrestees bring in on themselves, by resisting.

There’s not a racist bone in my body and there is actually zero evidence Floyd died because he was black. The problem isn’t white racism, it’s black and white inner city thug culture. The average inner city black or white, gang banging, shootem up, rape and rob em youth, have never been discriminated against and wouldn’t take a job paying 100,000 per year even if all they had to do was show up and dress up. They’d rather walk around with pants on the ground listening to rap and disrespecting people.

They got one.I never would have thought the brainwash would get you Dan but im guessing it happened during drivetime talk radio from Pittsfield to the suburbs.I almost went under the spell of 9 hours of radio madness myself.You got addicted .Rush almost had me when for months he accused Clinton of murdering Vince Foster….Then one day you get up and realize hes a drug addict in a protected bunker in a basement in Florida worth a billion paid to make sure the wealthy keep their cash.He got you good.And his 4th wife loves him…ha

The best thing you can do if you reject racism is:

1) to reject ideas like those shared by TSC – that inner city kids can’t be expected to learn and achieve more in school. Reject the teachers unions for showing up to protest but not to classes. Maryland schools are apparently closed until Jan 2021. Fire tMccandles if you are against racism. Fire the school committee.
2) Reject the corruption that swarms Pittsfield and gives old rich connected people loads of tax payer money. And somehow the foreclosure process doesn’t apply to them when they don’t pay their debts? (Stanley) You can be sure if you are poor and black or poor and white and don’t pay your bills in North Adams or Pittsfield they will foreclose on YOU. How many Black businesses has Downtown Pittsfield supported? Probably none – they support two of three of their directors – white rich men and their cronies. Is there any black owned business on North St?
3)Reject the idea that the pot industry is progressive when the owners are all former politicians or hangers one they needed to buy off to get their licenses (Barry) – there is not a single black owned pot business in the Berkshires. .

Don’t let yourself be manipulated into being told you DO NOT CARE about equality or decency when you say no to their phony manipulation. The glee in TSC comments about the rioting says of all. ‘We don’t need elections we are getting rid of Trump.’ Well, no thank you. I don’t want to live in Venezuela – I want the people to vote.

No, send these people back to work and school. They can’t go to school because of a virus, but can gather in the streets looting and burning or, as in Pittsfield, breaking every rule they expect us to follow? This isn’t about being lost or discouraged. It’s about a bunch of power mad individuals who have been trying to undo an election since 2016 and are now encouraging young people to be violent. The violence is happening in progressive cities. What does storming the White House have to do with what happened in Minneapolis? It’s never been more important to vote out as many as possible of these very dangerous progressives in 2020.

Do you really think that with people like AOC and the far left in charge that the government won’t have all the money and power? They will have more because they want to tax the people through the roof and then dole out what they see fit while taking your private vehicles, weapons, and all your rights. It’s the promise made by every socialist/marxist/communist country and it always fails miserably. Americans, even low income Americans, have a higher standard of living than those in most countries of the world. The really poor seem to reside in progressive cities and states.

Seeing his city on fire would ‘devastate’ George Floyd, girlfriend says 
https://www.startribune.com/jackson-sharpton-head-to-mpls-as-george-floyd-s-loved-ones-plead-for-calm/570827742/?refresh=true
 
“George Floyd’s family urged protesters to remain peaceful in Minneapolis, the city where the 46-year-old man died after his curbside detention this week and where a second day of demonstrations turned into a night of fires, looting and violence.
“I am heartbroken” by all the unrest that erupted Wednesday night and continued into Thursday, said Floyd’s girlfriend, Courteney Ross, as she took in the mayhem overwhelming her city for many blocks along or near Lake Street and stretching west to the Uptown business district.
“Waking up this morning to see Minneapolis on fire would be something that would devastate Floyd,” said Ross, his girlfriend for the past three years. “He loved the city. He came here [from Houston] and stayed here for the people and the opportunities. … Floyd was a gentle giant. He was about love and about peace.”
Ross said she wants everyone who took to the streets “to know that I understand their frustration. … I want people to protest in a peaceful way.”

And for teachers unions and ….

‘ Perhaps it’s time for the Supreme Court to step in. The court will announce tomorrow whether it will reconsider the doctrine of qualified immunity it created back in 1982. That doctrine shields police and all other government officials from accountability for their actions unless victims can show that the rights were “clearly established.”

But “whether the official’s actions are unconstitutional, intentional or malicious is irrelevant to the test,” as Patrick Jaicomo and Anya Bidwell, attorneys for the libertarian Institute for Justice, noted this weekend in USA Today. “When the Supreme Court conceived qualified immunity, it promised that the rule would not provide a ‘license for lawless conduct’ for government officials. Plainly, it has.”’

I was talking to a man during a sports event and since the conversation a few years ago and have been reading an inquiring the history of racism in our country and understand what he was explaining to me at that time.

He was so right. People have to differentiate racism and bad people in general. Not all African Americans or whites are bad but because of the color of ones skin, you would have to walk a straight line every minute of every day the way it is in the streets of America today.

If I were to take a jog in an exclusive neighborhood right here in Pittsfield someone would probably call the cops. If an African American did the same he-she would probably be arrested.

This latest situation is unrepairable unless the President steps in. He won’t. This is going to be a nasty summer here and everywhere.

The thin blue line of law enforcement is all that protects your from anarchy, and all that results from it; looting, arsons, beating, and murder. The liberal wing nut democcratic governors and mayor had cops stand down while the cities were destroyed. By the way, the police arrest milliions of people every year, without incident. Most people who die in police custody bring it on themselves by resisting arrest.

Dan, great article, thank you, verified the yuck feeling I had all day yesterday. The quotes in the Berkshire Eagle Sunday’s paper from both Pittsfield Mayors, Linda and Bare Bare and DA Andrea sickened me. So Mayor Linda goes on her 10 minute CORIN 19 weekly update and reads from her teleprompter telling us “Pittsfielders” to Stay Home and DA Andrea releases prisoners because they are not safe in the prisons. Yet both of them broke rules put in place by the Governor, no large crowds and they gloat about it in the media and actually are proud of their actions. Goes to show why Pittsfield is in the state it is, absolutely no leadership. Both ladies have always and still are, talking out of both sides of their mouths. Shameful.

Democrats are using the terrorist organization Antifa to destroy this country. The children of many of these progressive governors and politicians are cheering on Antifa. They are Marxists who are trying to destroy this country. They spread the Marxism in the schools so now the young people believe it is wonderful. Burgess Owens said this morning we are in a fight for the heart and soul of this country. This has nothing to do with Minneapolis just like the virus had nothing to do with the severe lockdowns in many progressive states. It’s all about Marxists trying to take control of this country.

Merry & Bright you need to pay attention to phase one opening. You can have more than 10 people in a place as long as it is outdoors and you social distance. Maybe the D.A. and Mayor were social distancing, I doubt it but I don’t know.

The Fact that Harrington the DA that actually stands up and makes a statement as opposed to to the Sheriff and others who watch from the sidelines* . Tyer was out in front of this sorry but fact. And the Social Distancing crap this called for Leadership the DA and the Mayors North Adams and Hinds were there in support of a volatile situation. See that’s what leaders they do not sit behind a computer all day and obsess and criticize.

Dan, did you just call for full authoritarian/fascist take over?!? And say it would be a good thing?!? DC felt like Bastille day last night. Crazy, but like with the cops, the video I saw much of the night showed the vast majority of the protesters being in earnest and actually trying to get the rioters to stop their violence. I believe there are instigators from both left and right among these crowds, both trying to cause chaos. This is really bad.

The peaceful protestors should leave the streets so that law enforcement could easily identify and fight against the violent protestors, but Antifa doesn’t want to make it easy for law enforcement to fight them. This is why they are blending them all together. Antifa is encouraging the peaceful ones to stay out with them because they really don’t care if the peaceful protestors are hurt since it’s all about the Marxist cause. They are encouraging 12 and 13 year olds to fight the police. This is truly evil.

Exactly Dan. Thanks for the clarification. Government is, by definition,authoritarian I that regard, except for the anarchists of course. Only looting I saw was on Santa Monica pier. The race split loomed pretty even. It appears there are 3 types of people out on the street; protesters, looters and Instigators/rioters. It’s this last group that seems to be the most dangerous…and the ones who for some crazy reason want to light the powder keg. I believe most of them are from right-wi g groups looking to incite a race war. A few have been identified as such and they, of course, were white.

Seeing his city on fire would ‘devastate’ George Floyd, girlfriend says 
 
“George Floyd’s family urged protesters to remain peaceful in Minneapolis, the city where the 46-year-old man died after his curbside detention this week and where a second day of demonstrations turned into a night of fires, looting and violence.
“I am heartbroken” by all the unrest that erupted Wednesday night and continued into Thursday, said Floyd’s girlfriend, Courteney Ross, as she took in the mayhem overwhelming her city for many blocks along or near Lake Street and stretching west to the Uptown business district.
“Waking up this morning to see Minneapolis on fire would be something that would devastate Floyd,” said Ross, his girlfriend for the past three years. “He loved the city. He came here [from Houston] and stayed here for the people and the opportunities. … Floyd was a gentle giant. He was about love and about peace.”
Ross said she wants everyone who took to the streets “to know that I understand their frustration. … I want people to protest in a peaceful way.””

Uh, there’s only one race for us. It’s called “the human race.” We just happen to be like Labrador Retrievers and come in a multitude of different human colors. Hating another human because of their color is a learned behavior. Luckily, I didn’t learn that behavior not because my parents taught me not to be racist, but because color didn’t matter to them. Factually, my mother and aunt got tossed off a Philadelphia bus in the 1940s for sitting in back simply because coming from the Berkshires, they didn’t know there was a line that shouldn’t be crossed. Everyone on the bus wanted them off because the white men up front didn’t offer them a seat and the blacks in back were afraid of a fight on the bus. So, they got off.
 
Of course, violence and looting aren’t appropriate. Period! No excuse. I did find it interesting in one city that the actual protesters did stop a bunch of looters from any further looting or property destruction. It’s also not right to protest simply to get your name on a broadsheet like some of our local politicos have done.
 
Factually, we all have to change if we are to survive as a dominant species on the planet. They say ignorance is bliss. Well, for many humans, life is one endless Disneyland.

If you actually listened to Glenn Beck, you would know that he is an extremely peaceful man who goes out of his way to constantly help people. These Democratic governors had no intention of stopping the violence until it was too late. They wanted to give them “space for destruction” and they think burning down buildings is fine because its just a building. They let this get out of control intentionally and/or they are just plain stupid.

With Keith Ellison you get Antifa, and when you’re stupid enough to vote for a Louis Farrakhan-hugging, Antifa-embracing radical like Keith Ellison to be your attorney general, your state’s top law enforcement officer… Enjoy the bed you made.
You voted for Keith Ellison and now Antifa burnt down your job. Huh? How about that?
You vote for a Democrat Party that has led your city to ruin for decades and decades and decades, and now Antifa’s destroyed your neighborhood. Huh? How about that?
I’m not happy about these riots. Of course not. The feeling is more along the lines of overwhelming indifference with a side of TOLDJASO. I’m not proud of the TOLDJASO part, but I’m also not going to lie about it.
And when Antifa attacked CNNLOL’s headquarters in Atlanta, I was reminded of something CNN staffer Chris Cuomo once said about Antifa: “[F]ighting hate is right. And in a clash between hate and those who oppose it, those who oppose it are on the side of right.”
Power to the people!
Let me put it this way…
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change…
And God did grant me that serenity safe in the knowledge I can’t fix stupid, and people who vote for Democrats are stupid, and I’ve spent 16 years and countless hours on these here InterWebDotNets warning you about Democrats, so my conscience is now clean with the serenity of indifference.
Yes, the Republican Party sucks. But it’s a binary choice and if you’re not stupid, you’ll always go with the pro-gun, anti-Antifa sucky party.   
And we did tell you so… We did. For decades, we’ve been warning you about the increased radicalization of the Democrat Party, a radicalization that started right here and has not only openly embraced left-wing terrorists groups like Antifa, but has bred these monsters.
After all, what is Antifa if not the unholy spawn of a Democrat Party and its nihilistic, left-wing religion that preaches you into the spiritual void of loveless sex, massive tuition debt, hating America, despising free enterprise, smoking weed, and the sacrament of killing the unborn. By Democrat design, the marauders in Black Lives Matter and Antifa have no stake in America — their womyn studies degree ensures they have no job, no future, no family, and $150,000 in debt. Hell, why not riot?
To begin with, your pals in the left-wing media regularly encourage Antifa to riot in your city. Your pals in the left-wing media adore the terrorists who destroy your neighborhoods and livelihoods. Your pals in the left-wing media excuse and justify Antifa’s violence, and then write glowing profiles about them.
Antifa burns down your backyard and gets great press. So why not riot?

Hello Fort Cannon,
 
Please know that I respect your and many other opposing views on politics, but I will never respect extremism on any side. You have every right to support U.S. President Donald Trump.
 
In my heart, I will never support Trump. I believe he is a White Nationalist who should not be using racist and sexist language against minorities, including immigrants, and women. I did, indeed, read that Trump hired far right political operatives like neo Nazi Stephen Bannon to blame China for all of your country’s problems in order for Trump to win rural America’s white vote. I believe that is similar to Hitler using far right political operatives to blame the Jews for all of Germany’s problems in the 1930s. Trump is persecuting a race of people, in this case the Chinese, like Hitler persecuted a race of people, who were Jewish.
 
I come from the school of Human Rights for all Peoples and people. My political beliefs are for supporting Human Rights over any political party or politician. In closing, I believe every citizen of our country and the World should have rights and liberties with their government and within their political nation-states.
 
Let Freedom Ring! God Bless America!

We closed our businesses, lost jobs, health insurance, to stay home and “protect healthcare workers” I hope the same healthcare workers that said you should forego receiving healthcare if you get sick going out, say the same thing to anyone who assembled yesterday. This is officially it for me, I played by the rules and lost a lot, everyone should return to business as usual now.

Protesting is wonderful. Looting and burning down cities is bad. The national guard and prison riot guards should be called up to stop burning cities to the ground. Our own Senator Markey with his nonsense about calling our President “Scum” and a “Racist” for wanting to stop cities from burning to the ground, churches burned down, women being beaten for protecting their property because Markey thinks the woman should just stand by and let Antifa burn her business to the ground. Maybe it’s even her home since many people live over their businesses in cities. Peaceful protesters are welcome, but not the violent ones and Markey knows that, but is playing politics.

For all the nay sayers, now you are starting to see some real numbers. They say they’ve changed the statistical model” on how they account for cases.
What’s actually happening is BHS is being forced to add the numbers that they “miscoded” or misplaced.
Now if the test happens at your hospital, it’s coded to your county. It was that way all along but BHS would code it to “unknown” if the person said they lived outside the area.
By coding it to unknown it stopped the automatic check by the CDC for conflicting numbers.

There are over 800 verified COVID+ cases in Berkshire county.
I’ve been saying this all along they slow rolled the numbers.
There are now 16 new quarantines due to the daycare program at the YMCA, did anyone see anything in the paper? Wouldn’t it be important to know if a daycare facility had COVID cases? Sort of like a senior center having COVID cases.
I guess COVID is over though because Mayor Crayola and Squeaky brought their children to park square for non socially distance virtue signaling.

The photos of looters and anarchists and arsonists is the best advertisement for private gun ownership there could ever be.
When the local DA and Mayor support criminality, you can only protect yourself. You CAN NOT rely on the police.

I agree completely and some of the governors of these progressive states have said private citizens are on their own when it comes to protection. They will protect even violent protesters instead of citizens trying to protect their homes and businesses. They will arrest 25 people gathering too closely in public because of a virus, but hundreds of people looting and burning are allowed to do so.

I’m still wrapping my head around the day care here? Is the health board involved in any decisions distancing?The last thing that should be open to the public are any children gathering in any form.

The YMCA and others provided emergency daycare for essential workers.
They never followed the minimum guidelines for social distancing. They did compartmentalization of the classes or groups.

AOC thinks President Trump is horrible to try to stop the Democrats from spreading chaos. She thinks President Trump has a lot of nerve to try to restore law and order and protect people from the angry mobs. In response to the NYT running an article about President Trump vowing to stop the violence, AOC tweets, “You’ve got to be kidding me”. She is a heroine to many young people and this is the kind of lawlessness that she supports.

Trump standing with the Bible in front of a church after dispersing peaceful protesters with tear gas, flash grenades, and rubber bullets.
 
A) Does Trump know what a church is for? He never seems to go to one.
 
B) It is a well-known fact that Trump doesn’t read. Ergo, he doesn’t need a Bible, wouldn’t use a Bible, and would certainly look for a 2 or 3 page edited version of one.
 
Life in America. One continuous steaming pile of horseshit after another.

Let’s see if so-called peaceful protesters will not move, how do we get them to move? It seems that if they were peaceful, they would move along if asked. Instead, I watched, which apparently you didn’t, and saw people standing there and defying the police to get them to move. One white young man got right up in the face of the police officer (no mask) and had to be arrested. It’s like the young intentionally are trying to get these officers sick with COVID-19 on top of everything else. The night before saw Washington near the White House nearly burned down so they have every right to be suspicious of protesters since bad rioters are moving among them. I’m sure you would have wanted Obama protected if he was the president.

Speaking of bad behavior, all coming from these progressive states, Cuomo seems about ready to fire DeBlasio. That would be a great decision since he seems to be cheering on the rioters. One young man in Washington last night got right up in the face of the police officer (with no mask) and was arrested. Most of these young people refused to move so officers had no choice but to move them along any way they could. The night before saw Washington near the White House nearly burned down so they have every right to be suspicious of protesters since bad rioters are moving among them. Who is good and who is bad, it’s hard to tell since Antifa is using the peaceful protesters as human shields for their criminal activity.

I agree with Rush’s assessment of the rioting. The Dems i.e. Cuomo & DiBlasio, think they are hurting Trump by continuing the pandemic lockdown and allowing the rioters to destroy property. DiBlasio refuses to call in the National Guard. Cuomo & DiBlasio are actually allowing & encouraging the economic & physical destruction of their state & NYC. Who wants to live in a state run by a tyrant Gov. with high taxes ( that will continue to increase), high crime, rampant disease etc. The mismanagement comes right back to Cuomo & DiBlasio – two liberal corrupt idiots!

Parents escort their own son, an “Antifa Kid” to the police station after he instigated a major riot. The public school system has radicalized so many of these young people. Disgusting and Sad!!

I think all parents should be checking the computers of these young people to see who they are interacting with because for many of them it could be some terrorist group. Antifa is recruiting these kids through the school system it seems and using them to try to overthrow the government. They have their radical groups on campuses throughout the country, even high schools, to radicalize the young.

Why aren’t all the Park Square protestors being quarantined for 2 weeks? Where is the Pittsfield Health Dept.? Where were the police? Tyer apparently approved this gathering, as she was in attendance along with her hubby.
 
If the pandemic is over, why aren’t retail stores, restaurants, doctors offices opened? Why are we still wearing masks?

Hello Pat and Rinaldo,
 
I will keep this email short and sweet. The common man, woman, and child in our great country has no real representation in the State House and/or Capitol Hill. The Golden Rule in American politics is not the same as it is in all religions and civic values. The Golden Rule in American politics is those with the Gold Rule!
 
Best wishes,

BERKSHIRE PHOTOJOURNALIST IN MINNEAPOLIS COULDN’T FIND WHITE SUPREMACISTS; WARNED ABOUT ANTIFA!
“He’s run into Antifa, on the one hand, and warned by other reporters ‘not to get too close to those guys.’ He’s also tried to track down a reported white supremacist rally but couldn’t find it.” — Berkshire Eagle reporter Heather Bellow interviewing Jacob Borden, a Berkshire-based photojournalist covering the current civil unrest in Minneapolis.

How did Trump recruit all his people? And he is hardly intelligent but pulled it off anyhow. Psychologists say it is because he is a cult leader and attracts people with low self esteem.

No, I agree with Free Bird’s response. It’s all about Dems not ever being able to admit that President Trump is right about anything. President Trump has been right all along about Antifa being behind a lot of the violence.
The media and even a member of the church in Washington had to show more outrage of President Trump holding a Bible in front of the church than toward the people who attempted to burn down the church. Very odd, don’t you think?
