Mack, the founder of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association, suffered a heart attack in January and is in recovery. His wife fell ill late last year. Mack is on the board of Oath Keepers, a right-wing fringe group made up of police and military veterans, and is known for supporting Cliven Bundy in his standoff against the federal government.

Every single work of art—every single institution, every group—can’t be about every person. Inclusivity should mean that every person is allowed to have a dialogue with it, to interrogate it, comment on it, and have the space to create their own art or institution or group to stand beside it.

the Oklahoma Daily published the details of his concert rider this week—the rider included, among other things, the exact recipe to be used for the guacamole White’s team wanted served backstage. It’s nothing shocking (the ingredients are about what you’d expect, though the instructions do include lines like “we want it chunky” and “SAVE THE PITS THOUGH”), but apparently White’s talent company was none too happy with the article

I passed this house driving through the City of Newburgh.
They tagged the side of the house too
Can you appreciate the care taken in this tag? The balance. The structure. Carefully chosen phrase lovingly centered on the canvas. Notice they didn’t say “Bitch”, or spell our “motherfucker”. “MF” fits there perfectly.
