The last we checked in on Ferguson, Mo., a Walgreens and a Little Ceasar’s were going up in smoke, along with a Metro PCS store where a looter stopped for a quick photo in front of the spreading flames. Police also report that a storage facility and Sam’s Meat Market have been set on fire. Looting is widespread as well.

Blinder’s “racist, ignorant” tweet has angered quite a few. Why? Read on.

Save some of that hate for the New York Times reporter; you’ll need it to spread around.
