We must protect this dirty box

What's going on right now is amazing, and I'm learning about it almost exclusively from Twitter and video uploaded by citizen journalists. If you haven't seen it already, dig this video of a cop deliberately throwing a flashbang grenade directly into the midst of protesters rushing to help one of their own who has fallen. If I could credit the taker of this amazing photo I would. And as linked to already on Small Peculiar's Facebook page, this hour of footage taken on a smartphone last night is riveting. W. H. Auden was right, accurate scholarship can unearth the whole offense, from Luther until now, that has driven a culture mad; but there's no way he could have imagined, in 1939, that that scholarship would be uploaded to Ustream by a guy called "punkboyinsf."
