Did Pope Innocent II Really Forbid the Use of the Crossbow?
TL;DR version: Yes, but he also forbade the use of any bow against Christians, as well as the sling. He also forbade jousting and tournament fighting (which were more lethal and play-for-keeps in the twelfth century than the later high medieval versions). The idea seemed to be to limit the deaths Christians inflicted on each other so as not to deplete Europe's armies while those armies were needed for the Crusades. But everyone ignored him, of course.

Longtime poster ibguy announced on the ONT Wednesday that his younger sister Joyce has passed. Those of you who follow the ONT are well aware of Joyce's tenacious fight against cancer, ibguy's daily updates have kept us all abreast of her triumphs, setbacks, and her steadfast determination to suck every last bit of marrow from the bones of life. Although she never posted here, she was as much a part of the ONT family as he is, and we mourn her loss. Baruch dayan ha'emet. [Weirddave]

At 5:00, Here's Joe DiGenova Floating the "S.M." Initials for the Spy/Informant in Trump's Camp
However, a friend is scratching his head at this. Almost everything DiGenova says seems to point at a guy I'm thinking of, then he says "S.M.," initials I can't match to anyone. Did he brain-fart? Does he just not know what he's talking about? I dunno. He says the name has been widely written about on blogs -- but no one on blogs is talking about an SM. An SH, yeah. An SM? Not that I know of.

One problem: YouTube only gives away the first two of the ten episodes away for free; the other 8 you'll have to sign up for YouTube Red for (and pay whatever the costs). I assume people will sign up and intend to cancel in a month. I assume they'll also forget to cancel. And I assume YouTube assumes that, too.
A USC doctor was accused of bad behavior with young women for years. The university let him continue treating students "An internal USC investigation determined that Tyndall's behavior during pelvic exams was outside the scope of current medical practice and amounted to sexual harassment of students. But in a secret deal last summer, top administrators allowed Tyndall to resign quietly with a financial payout."
Why? Because there is no political advantage to going after one of their own. [CBD]
