Torie:
This board due to the often incendiary nature of the news these days, where lots of media outlets report the same story in their own way over a few days, is getting a lot of reports requesting thread mergers at the moment, but I have yet to see a report that identifies the thread into which another thread should be moved. Thus the moderator is constrained to root around and try to find the appropriate merger candidate, that I at least often find burdensome and oppressive, and thus sometimes abandon the task, and take no action. So I request that posters who desire thread mergers,  at least help the old man along, and show him the yellow brick road. Otherwise your request will become more likely to not being honored. Thank you.

Oh, I have one other request on my list here. Some threads are asking for the opinion of posters about an issue or personalities on this board. Those all belong on the Individual Politics board. This board is cluttered enough as it is. Cheers.

Could we perhaps get a single dedicated thread for Florida man stories? At least the non-overtly jpolitical ones? I understand it's something of a swing state, and that some stories (like the recent arrest for threats against prominent minority Democrats) do have significance, but stories like the following feel like clutter:

Florida man arrested for impersonating officer after pulling over detective

Florida man gropes fingerprint technician after being arrested
   
Florida man arrested outside Olive Garden eating spaghetti with bare hands

Except as local stories, this is mostly National Enquirer stuff.  Florida has a large population with lots of rootless people -- and these people sound like the types that people in Pennsylvania or Illinois say "Thank God -- he's leaving town!" That one appears in Newsweek suggests that Newsweek is going bad very fast.

Freak stories are usually proportional to the population. What is it about Florida -- the absence of real winters so that crazy people don't simply stay indoors? People with no local roots who have the illusion that life is a free-for-all?

One has to have some deep roots, an economic role in life too good to lose, or complete economic helplessness to stick around in a place with real winters in which life is undeniably miserable for three to five months of the year just for the weather.

PSOL:
Can we merge all Illhan Omar threads of the past two weeks into a megathread about her? Same principle with the older AOC thread and recent stories. Is it doable?

Ex:https://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=318556.0
https://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=315394.0
https://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=317758.0

And while we’re at it, a new AOC megathread:https://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=318577.0
https://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=318550.0
https://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=317405.0

Actual Necromancer Joe Manchin:
I just started a state abortion laws megathread and would like to suggest that the current threads on abortion-related news out of Ohio, Pennsylvania, Alabama, and Georgia be merged into it.
