    This is getting silly...

    Russian diplomats accused of damaging air quality in San Francisco, when they burned stuff in the furnace before leaving their compound there; may have to pay a fine: Russia served notice over San Francisco consulate fire - BBC News

    Meanwhile, Russia takes away parking from US diplomats: Russia reduces parking spaces at US consulates

    Silly, petty bs say for two major world powers to continue their row with each other. Just... undignified, IMHO

    Better than a war, though, of course...
    Thanks from Rorschach

    It is a little silly, but I enjoyed the riot order out of SanFran. Few things say "Hey, we're mad at you" more than a consulate closure. Few things say "FUCK YOU, GO FUCK YOURSELF YOU FUCKING FUCKS" than "Close your consulate in the next two days."

    Definitely want to avoid war, but anything short of that is good in my book. We can smack Putin harder than he can to us.

    Better to stand on opposite sides of the river leaping and hooting at each other than to actually swim across and start bashing heads in with clubs.

    But yes, it's a bit silly.

    With all the fires raging in this state, last week was one of the smokiest on record. The last thing we need is all that black smoke pouring out of the consulate chimney. I know it was giving me a sore throat, probably because of all the poison oak ash wafting in my direction.

    This should make things better......

    Across the bay in Berkeley they are considering ordinances that allow everyone to go without a shirt in public places. You can blame the hottest summer on record for that one.

    With the return of the off shore flow we get to add their stink to that of all the fires raging in this state. When the winds were blowing it off shore no one really cared.

    Not really:

    Wood Smoke Pollution

    The clean air act of 1970 was given birth to by California's environmental laws; if these people want to shit in someone's atmosphere, let them do it in Russia.

    Glad they are out.
