Look at today's breeders

An ad for a sperm donor says:
I am a 34 year-old single woman ...
My ideal donor will: ... Be 5'11 or taller ... Healthy ... Attractive ... be able to demonstrate a fierce intelligence ... identifies as a liberal or progressive ...
Race/ethnicity, religious/spiritual background, hair color, eye color, national origin, and occupation are not factors in my decision.
I am not sure who is worse, the breeders who plan it or the ones who don't.

Meanwhile, a UK TV reporter complains that an eyewitness account of the riots was "being stereotypical" by describing a particular crowd as "black youths". reports The 6 Dumbest Things Schools Are Doing in the Name of Safety.

The LA Times reports:
"We are now going to make it a crime in California not to use a fitted sheet? Really?" state Sen. Sam Blakeslee (R-San Luis Obispo) asked during a debate before the Senate passed the measure in June.

The bill, one of nearly 900 awaiting final action in the Legislature when it returns Monday from a monthlong recess, is intended to address back injuries sustained by hotel housekeepers. But it has revived a long-simmering debate over whether California has become a hyper-regulated "nanny state."
Our civilization is in decline.
