In the Kivila language...

...of the Trobriand Islands there is a lovely word, “mokita”, which means “truth we all know but agree not to talk about”. I am about to speak some mokitas.

UPDATE: Oh, c'mon you crybabies...

...it's not like it was first degree...so much for gentle giantI wish I could say I was surprised.

Great word .. moh-kee-tah. In Canada we have a word with similar meaning, "news."

it's all about political correctnesss these days.

wonder what would happen if you put the islamic community and the lgbt community in a room together.

i'm guessing it wouldn't be pretty.

I'm surprised it's taken this long to come out. The Ferguson police have done a very poor PR job. They should have leaked everything immediately.

i'm guessing the police department was a little worried after holder and obama got involved.

look at the trayvon travesty... after obama did his "just like my kid" song and dance, the police chief got fired, the prosecuting attorney got fired and feds descended to look for all those racists.

the fact that this kid had a previous murder charge is being ignored by the regular media because they want riots and a lynching. not much good reporting on peace and quiet.
