As Mrs. Fish and I are discussing, this movie is what brought Deadpool up into my Top 3 in my list of superheroes. Does it say something about me that 2 of my top 3 are anti-heroes?

Holy crap! What a day!

I start catching up on reading the threads, starting with the Presidential Seal golf tees thinking that if this was President Obama, the Fright Wing would have demanded he be thrown in a dungeon in chains.

Then run into this Sam Nunberg stuff, where apparently he melted down like hot wax on multiple networks.

I’m going to have to go back and watch the Katy Tur interview … this has gone way beyond Stupid Watergate.

And what the hell does Roger Stone have on Mr. Nunberg that Nunberg would defend Stone over Donald Trump? Stone’s been at the rodent copulation business for the Republicans for a long time. For Nunberg to be more scared of Stone than Robert Muller or the President must be pretty flippin’ bad.

It’s very strange to me that my brother and I were discussing the same phenomenon re our kid western TV heroes not three hours ago, and came up with the same 2 out of 3 antihero ratio. We both liked Matt Dillon (James Arness), the conventional hero. But we really liked Maverick (James Garner), the danger-averse Old West gambler and con man, who beat the bad guys the same way he won at poker, by brains and luck, and Paladin (Richard Boone), maybe the original Man in Black, who lived the life of a connoisseur and lover of all things beautiful in San Francisco but when he had a job strapped on a gun and rode all to hell and back, not always doing the bidding of his employers.

Holy crap … still going through the video. I notice the screen Katy Tur has behind her of people who have already spoken to the Special Council Robert Mueller.

In that montage is a picture of Sam Clovis … I remember writing a letter to my local paper a few months ago when Clovis was nominated by Donald Trump to be Chief Scientist at the USDA, and I came out strongly against him (since he’s not a scientist).

Even then I thought things were crazy. Sam Nunberg is wild. He doesn’t sound high or drunk to me, he sounds terrified.

Nunberg talking about Russia hacking Hillary Clinton’s E-mail (I thought they got the DNC and RNC, but Hillary Clinton’s was never taken) … saying Russia, India, and Israel took them? WTF? Complaining it would take him eighty hours to collect his E-mail?

I’m not in the Federal government, but if I was told to turn over my government E-mail it would take me about five minutes (it’s all sorted on my computer separately from my private E-mail).

On that sorta-topic, I am starting to watch MacGyver. I got turned on to Richard Dean Anderson with his work on the sci-fi series Stargate: SG1, but this is the first time I’ve seen his earlier work available for streaming. And now I get to watch him in his younger years. Mrs. Fish is having a fangirl-gasm.

In my own little town (where there are more guns than people), I get along fine with everyone. Pretty much the same for my county (there aren’t a lot of people here).

re: #30 whitebeach

It’s funny how even a sorta forgettable TV western can work in minds and open them for some people. I remember an episode of Wanted Dead or Alive when circumstances forced McQueen and this very tough-looking black guy to share camp for a night. McQueen’s character didn’t much care for this, and eventually the dialogue got a little challenging. Remember that McQueen was this extremely tough white dude, heavily armed and competent with those weapons. At some point, the black man says something like, “Do you want to fight, mister? Is that what you want to do?” And McQueen makes peace!

I expect that most lizards can’t, although some of them certainly can, understand the effect of this on a raised-racist white teenager like me in the fucking segregated South.

Reason Magazine likens this issue to the “Satanic Panic” in the USA in the Eighties.

reason.com
(Goes to the Libertarian Reason Magazine)

The Province of Ontario was using a laboratory called Motherisk to do hair-sample testing on children to prove their mothers were alcoholics or drug abusers, and using the results to take children from their homes.

Last week, a review of the procedures used by the family courts determined that in scores of cases, the fake laboratory had substantial sway over child custody cases where the province sought to take children from their homes. Many have since been returned.

Anyway, he goes on a fifty-one tweet speculative thread about the woman in the Thai jail claiming she has information for the Trump/Russia investigation.

From the San Antonio Express News article on the Sutherland Springs, Tex. pastor who was harassed by two right-wing conspiraliars:

The Wilson County Sheriff’s Office declined to provide charging information on Robert Ussery, 54, who founded conspiracy website Side Thorn, and his partner Jodi Mann, 56, who is referred to as “Conspiracy Granny” online. The booking process was not complete Monday evening and no information would be made available until Tuesday, a supervisor there said.

Ussery “continually yelled and screamed and hollered and told me he was gonna hang me from a tree, and pee on me while I’m hanging,” said Frank Pomeroy, the pastor.

Pomeroy said he was in his car by the church when the pair approached the building, and he intervened when Mann began to write in large, loopy writing on a poster left for well-wishers to sign, “The truth shall set you free.”

The pair believe the church shooting was staged by accomplices of the government, though Pomeroy, whose 14-year-old daughter was killed there, knows better.

These people need to be deprogrammed.

It is terrifying how they have all bought into various conspiracies — how they support Trump and dismiss all criticism of him as fake news.

I’ve never, ever liked Condi Rice because she sold out to GOPers while knowing that if she hadn’t been a member of their party, they’d have treated her the way they treated PBO. She’s a well-educated woman, but she needs to STFU in a hurry. If she was too timid to speak about the way her party members treated PBO, and the things they’ve been saying about Michael Steele recently, she’s a coward and the GOP’s useful black idiot. I’ll be totally honest, if Rice were to try to visit some black churches here in Middle GA, she would be permitted to come, but she’d better prep and expect to answer some hard questions. She’ll also get lots of side eye. For comparison, think about how Manigault was treated when she showed up at the black journalists’ association convention and thought she’d get a warm reception. Girl couldn’t hack it and left there in a hurry. In the right situation, side eye can work miracles.

When I was sitting SAC alert, in the early 80’s we had six B-52 alert shots and six KC-135s to refuel them out of K. I. Sawyer AFB in Marquette, Michigan. Missions 1 and 2 were penetrators, loaded up with 12 Short Range Attack Missiles (SRAMs) on two rotary launchers in the two bomb bays that were “targets of opportunity” birds, attacking active radars that came up on them, clearing the way for the bombers behind them. The post strike landing bases for those birds were in Isfahan, Iran. (Keep in mind, this was *after* the revolution. We still had agreements with Iran.) Missions 3 and 4 were known as “The Eastern European Heating Authority” flights, with four 1.3 megaton gravity weapons in the front bomb bay and six SRAMs on a single rotary launcher in the aft bomb bay. Mission 5 was an urban/industrial flight into the Moscow area, armed up with the same weapons load as 3 and 4. Post strike landing base was Incirlik, Turkey. Mission six was a Strategic Reserve flight which would land in Cold Lake, Alberta with it’s tanker and see if there was anything left to kill, and then go kill it. Same weapons load as 3, 4, and 5.

So Iran and Turkey were kind of problematical after a nuclear exchange, and we were issued .38 pistols with 4” barrels as service weapons. So I, like many of my fellow pilots, decided to arm up. I bought a .41 magnum Dan Wesson pistol pack (heavy vent rib with five speed loaders) and an H&K 91 full auto in 7.62 NATO.

Safe, single, 3-shot burst, and full auto settings on the selector. Shot it once on full auto and ended up with the barrel up and to the right at about 15 degrees after eight shots. Never fired it again more than burst mode which was controllable.

Twenty round clips, which were large enough to tape three together for a 60 round package. Cost me $900 for the gun and $200 for the license. Sold it it in ‘85. Sold the Dan Wesson around ‘88. I’ve got a shotgun and a deer rifle.

When R’s say that D’s are ignorant of guns, I’ve got to laugh. I’ve been hunting for 50 years, and I can put a three shot 7.62 group in a half dollar at 300 yards with my rifle.

Venison tastes *good*.

The Republicans in the WVa state senate, who went all “fiscal conservative” on the state’s teachers and stated they would vote against the raise the house passed, accidentally passed the house version of the bill, passing the 5% raise.

The state senate is now working on a bill to repeal the raise, with Democrats and parents in opposition.

No matter where you put conservatives in charge, they cannot govern. In no place, at any time. They can’t even screw their own employees correctly.

SEOUL, March 5 (UPI) — South Korean envoys reached an understanding with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un during their four hour meeting in Pyongyang on Monday.

South Korea’s Presidential Spokesman Kim Eui-gyeom said Tuesday that the five-member delegation dispatched by President Moon Jae-in met with the North Korean leader for dinner and talks from 6 p.m. local time.

The meeting reportedly ended with a satisfactory “result,” which includes details of an inter-Korean summit, the spokesman said.

Not a good sign: these are Europeans - they’ve had centuries to perfect the art of “doing stupid” - hell, they were formulating and executing stupid policies since the US still belonged to the Indians. They are pros at the game…

Interestingly, way back when Alex Jones was first getting his start on Austin public access, he called into the Atheist Experience show (which also appeared on Austin public access at the time).

He was a wingnut in the clip then (this was many years ago). (4:35)

[Embedded content]

Video

In conventional political terms, Jones was all over the map then, as now. His show had some appeal to local lefties because of his attacks on the military, law enforcement, corporations, and the Bush family. His brand of anti-science also emphasized new age woo like UFOs and ESP over religious right anti-science like creationism. Libertarianism was not a well understood concept among the mass audience at that time. He was also publicly agnostic then, which certainly did not endear him to conventional wingnuts. It is a subject he avoids these days.

Alabama Senator advances a Ten Commandments state constitution amendment to display that in all public schools to “deter school shootings.”

Cause ya know, Separation of Church and State really isn’t a thing to conservatives, nor is a practical solution like regulating firearms.

alreporter.com
(Alabama Political Reporter, more at the link)

The Alabama Senate on Tuesday approved a bill by Sen. Gerald Dial, R-Lineville, that would authorize a state referendum on whether to allow the display of the Ten Commandments on public property and public schools — a proposal he says may prevent some mass shootings.

The bill passed the Legislature’s upper chamber by a vote of 23 to 3 after Dial told lawmakers that displaying the Ten Commandments might dissuade some school shooters from carrying out an attack.

“I believe that if you had the Ten Commandments posted in a prominent place in school, it has the possibility to prohibit some student from taking action to kill other students,” Dial said.

A hundred years ago, westerners mocked superstitious shamanists who believed that magic would shield them from enemy bullets. The Chinese “Boxers” and various African groups were usually cited.

At that second if I was sitting on that town board, I would have demanded a quorum count, and upon determining the majority of the city council had left, suspended the meeting.

I forget which state it is, but after a Democratic lawmaker (Virginia?) invited an imam to give the opening invocation, the chaplaincy office for the legislature wrote a new rule to prohibit inviting anyone except a leader in your church/mosque/synagogue &c.

This reactionary know nothing vulgarian is presiding over an admin that is looting and fleecing the Treasury at every opportunity.

Trump brought in cronies with zero policy experience. He values loyalty to him over all else, including competency to do the job he’s intended for them to do.

So, between picking extremists who are intent on destroying the very departments they’re running and incompetents who are allowing agencies to falter and fail because they just don’t know what they’re doing, he’s got the government in a tailspin.

And his admin is a shitshow of rivalries who are intent on showing how loyal they are to Trump by throwing everyone else under the bus by claiming they aren’t sufficiently loyal to him.

It’s a cancerous and toxic environment, and Trump thinks that all this is normal, because this is how he runs his businesses (into the ground and has seem them become so highly leveraged that he’s compromised by all the money he owes to foreign countries and banks).

Weatherman is calling for 6 to 12 inches of snow here tomorrow.

While I was in Florida, my wife texted to me that Lowe’s was running a clearance on snow blowers. She had the day off yesterday, so we went and got one.

This guarantees that we’ll be getting mostly rain tomorrow, because that is simply how things work.

We wound up getting 6” yesterday, with a little bit still left to come in during the day today (maybe an inch or so). The thing is, with the 20-30 mph winds, it piled up in places; my driveway was basically one large snowdrift that was over 2’ deep in places. Oh, and my snowblower broke down; I think I burned out the drive clutch. I’ll have to open her up this week and figure it out.

re: #308 lawhawk

Trump brought in cronies with zero policy experience. He values loyalty to him over all else, including competency to do the job he’s intended for them to do.

So, between picking extremists who are intent on destroying the very departments they’re running and incompetents who are allowing agencies to falter and fail because they just don’t know what they’re doing, he’s got the government in a tailspin.

And his admin is a shitshow of rivalries who are intent on showing how loyal they are to Trump by throwing everyone else under the bus by claiming they aren’t sufficiently loyal to him.

It’s a cancerous and toxic environment, and Trump thinks that all this is normal, because this is how he runs his businesses (into the ground and has seem them become so highly leveraged that he’s compromised by all the money he owes to foreign countries and banks).

Eugene Robinson had a good article in the WaPo this morning.

washingtonpost.com

Trump and his family have refused to divest themselves of their businesses or even draw more than a flimsy veil between their official actions and the impact those actions have on their personal finances. Does the administration’s policy toward Panama really have nothing to do with a bitter dispute over the Trump-branded hotel in Panama City? Does the administration’s tough new attitude toward Qatar really have nothing to do with that nation’s refusal to invest in Jared Kushner’s debt-laden real estate company?

It’s not the potential answers to those questions that are so corrosive; it’s the questions themselves. As in many countries whose governance we scoff at, Americans must now wonder whether policy is being tailored for our leaders’ personal gain.

When the rule of law and financial probity can no longer be assumed, the vacuum is filled with conspiracy theories. The president himself is a conspiratorialist par excellence; he was, after all, the chief purveyor of the birther nonsense. Since neither his words nor those of his press office can be believed, it is natural — but incredibly damaging — to assume that the real story is being hidden from us, for reasons that must be nefarious.

That sucks about the snowblower. I killed my snowblower earlier this winter - it was an electric model and the impeller got so completely warped out of shape that it stopped spinning altogether. Picked up a replacement for cheap - Snow Joe has a outlet center not too far away, so it made sense to get one there. Even if it lasts a couple of seasons, it’s worth it and beats trying to shovel everything out by hand.

re: #303 MsJ

That’s from last night. He apparently had a call with the AP and said that he’d cooperate with Mueller if the latter removed the Carter Page requirement…which Nunburg said he had zero contact with. If you had zero contact with this person, why exclude something that doesn’t supposedly exist.

Like I said…all roads lead to Page.

I don’t think Page would be singularly in charge of anything. What I do think is Roger Stone seems to have a group that did all the dirty work and the coordinating with the Russians. Let’s just call them Stoners, because they are wacky like they are stoned.

Part of the plan may be to act all outlandish and goofy so no one takes any one of them seriously. They may also be so goofy as to be dumb enough to take the fall so no higher up gets touched. True Believers that are expendable.

I think Stone and Manafort are tied together as they have been for a long long time. Manafort the brains and money handler, Stone the guy that gets the goofs together to pull the capers. Even Michael Cohen the lawyer might be part of the group…another useful idiot ready to cover for The Big Don.

And Nunberg may not have talked to Page or even know him directly. But he sure as hell knows who he is and staying away from Page in the investigations may allow him to do what he wants and that is protect Stone knowing that is the connection for him to the Trump campaign.

I think Mueller knows the whole game now and this is why he is applying pressure to Nunberg. He knows he isn’t that bright and so damn glib that he will give it up by trying to cover it up.

re: #255 Shiplord Kirel, live from behind wingnut lines

A hundred years ago, westerners mocked superstitious shamanists who believed that magic would shield them from enemy bullets. The Chinese “Boxers” and various African groups were usually cited. As far as anyone knows, all were proven wrong. Nevertheless, the tradition apparently continues with the superstitious natives of Alabama.

The recent poll figures are interesting. My first thought was, given the Trump chaos, perhaps the worst in US history, why are not the Dems a gazillion points ahead?

I think there are two factors:

1) there are a significant number of “Never Ds” out there, and frankly there always will be, and

2) I think there is an incorrect assumption being made that some Americans want or even understand what’s good for them/their country.

It seems idiotic to suggest that people do not want the best outcome, but there are a lot of stupid/ignorant people out there.

I am reconciled to the belief that a lot of people voting for Trump didn’t do it foolishly but because they wanted out of everything that is the world of today; H*ll, they probably don’t even know what these “things” are or the consequences of rejecting them, but they sure voted to reject them.

In fact, I suspect many are looking at the Dems right now, and thinking, “what’s the point of voting Trump out if that’s what we get in his place?”

I don’t blame the Dems. The fact is, the whole sorry mess is solidly down to the Republicans, but I feel quite sure that many Americans are not ready (yet?) to swap chaos for a return to sanity.

While they may not have had emails to/from Page, I can guarantee that they discussed him and how they could play Fuck With Everyone (because, that’s Stone’s specialty). There has to be something extremely damaging in there for this to be the response.

And the funniest part is that Mueller almost certainly has this information already, making his entire exercise pointless.

This snowblower is more than 20 years old; it was my dad’s, he brought it north when he got a blade for his big truck. I’ve been running it and taking care of it ever since. I’m not sure if I am going to fix it or replace it. It runs brilliantly, but it is old enough that it might be a wiser investment to get a newer model.

Take a note: Taxing the rich works.

I remember back under Clinton when he had a budget surplus and Rush Limbaugh came on to tell us that it is immoral for the government to take more money from us in taxes than it needs to operate and therefore surpluses are bad.

Those are pretty much all the same thing. The fundamentalists in the GOP are a new kink introduced by Paul Weyrich, and Goldwater was complaining of it on the Senate floor back in 1981.

But “individual initiative and personal freedom” was a strong characteristic of conservatism as pushed during Manifest Destiny (genocide) and the Gilded Age (a few people owned most everything).

i want to know if it issued her a 1099 or a k-1, or something else (or nothing else)

Preps, Yuppies, and an Unsavory Past at Dorrian’s Red Hand

James “Red Dog” Dorrian, a native of Ulster, Ireland, opened this restaurant in 1960, when he was in his ’20s. The area was mainly German back then, and Dorrian’s Red Hand was one of a wave of “new old-fashioned” bars that opened in the area, taverns intended to look like older New York saloons. Thus, the wooden floors, tin ceilings, red-and-white checkered tablecloths. Nostalgia is nothing new in New York; it just used to mimic different eras.

At some point, the Dorrian clan bought the building the eatery occupies, thus ensuring its survival. Had they not, who knows if the business would have withstood the events and aftermath of Aug. 26, 1986. That was the night when Dorrian’s teenage “regular” Robert Chambers, aka “The Preppy Killer,” left the bar with another teenager, Jennifer Levin. Chambers was later arrested when Levin turned murdered in Central Park, and subsequently convicted of manslaughter. The “red hand” of the name—which refers to a particularly gruesome myth attached to the late kings of Ulster—proved an unfortunate moniker at that moment. It was subsequently played down.

History weirdly repeated itself in 2009, when student Imette St. Guillen disappeared from The Falls, a SoHo bar that was owned by Michael Dorrian and managed by Daniel Dorrian, sons of Dorrian’s current owner, Jack. St. Guillen wound up dead. The more you dig into Dorrian history, the more confused you get. Family members seem to be everywhere, and own restaurants and bars all over New York. One married Giuliani’s former chief of staff. An ancestor was reportedly a Prohibition bootlegger. One day, they’ll provide fodder for a good book.

Mr. Wilson is referring to this article in The Atlantic.

theatlantic.com

If the article is true, it sure makes Nunberg’s display on the media yesterday look like an act.

The lede:

“By the way, you know I’m the number one trending person on Twitter?”

It was just after 8:00 p.m. on Monday night, and the suddenly-famous Sam Nunberg had phoned me from Dorrian’s Red Hand Restaurant, a yuppie hangout on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, where he was reveling in his triumph.

After announcing earlier that day his intention to defy a grand-jury subpoena he says he received in the Russia investigation (“Arrest me,” he’d dared prosecutors), the former Trump aide had spent the day conducting a manic media blitz—popping up on multiple cable-news programs, granting interviews to dozens of journalists, and hijacking the news cycle with a car-crash procession of blustery soundbites. Legal experts were warning that his failure to cooperate with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation could put him in serious legal jeopardy—but at this moment, it seemed, Nunberg was in a celebratory mood.

I’ve still got a pretty strong libertarian streak, though I never joined the party, and other than a protest primary vote in 2008, I never once thought of supporting Paul.

I haven’t pushed a baby stroller in a long time, but if someone drove a car into it and “bumped” it, I would use the verb “hit.”

In a crosswalk, in a city where pedestrians have the right-of-way in crosswalks, there is no excuse for a car to do anything to a pedestrian.

Hassidic Jews dress in a particular manner. It would be entirely logical to describe him that way (I doubt someone dressed that way would be described as a Mennonite, and I would be no more bigoted to describe a person as a Mennonite if that person was dressed like one).

That said, if the fellow did in fact bump her baby stroller and she was not in the wrong, she should be filling in a police report. (I don’t know how difficult that is to do in New York though.)

It’s not like Twitter has ever been used to call someone out before.

The Koreas are going to end up negotiating without us if Trump insists on denuclearization as a pre-condition for talks. Given the Trump Administration’s inability to do anything right, that might be for the best. But between the peninsula, the TPP, NAFTA, the threat of worldwide tariffs, and threatening to abandon the Iran deal… it may be a long time before we are trusted in a world leadership role.

You and I are a lot alike, and we are not the norm.

True story. My girls were small, probably 4 and 6. I was with my aunt in a parking lot walking back to her van with the folding chairs we had just purchased. A woman in a huge red truck sped by, almost striking my children. I happened to have a folding chair in my hand and as the truck when by, I whacked the shit out of the truck and put a big dent in it. The woman stopped and looked like she was going to get out. I told her to bring it, that she almost ran my children over. I must have looked crazy because she changed her mind and took off. My aunt was horrified. I simply went back to putting the chairs in the back of her car.

re: #467 dangerman

if i understand it, the president can “grant” clearance to anybody

he should be (or should have been way back when) the freakin brutal boss he says he is and said i want him in this position and im giving him clearance

instead they’re bumbling this 10 different ways because no one wants to just come out and say “this relation of yours cant pass a clearance”

If I recall correctly, Ben Rhodes was one of Obama’s top advisors and during his entire tenure was on a presidential waiver. I can only find wingnut blogs about the issue, so it’s not entirely clear why he couldn’t pass the background check (wingnuts would rather bitch about Rhodes’ role in the Iran deal). But yes, ultimately clearances in the White House are a matter of presidential discretion - which is fine when to generally trust the president’s discretion (even if you don’t agree with him politically); it’s more troubling when it’s, well, Trump.

As a general rule, if a sitting president faces a primary challenge in his re-election campaign, he’s going to lose the general election. LBJ withdrew in ‘68, Ford lost in ‘76, Carter lost in ‘80, Bush lost in ‘92. So Trump getting any kind of establishment style challenger is probably good for us in the long run.

I haven’t pushed a baby stroller in a long time, but if someone drove a car into it and “bumped” it, I would use the verb “hit.”

In a crosswalk, in a city where pedestrians have the right-of-way in crosswalks, there is no excuse for a car to do anything to a pedestrian.

Hassidic Jews dress in a particular manner. It would be entirely logical to describe him that way (I doubt someone dressed that way would be described as a Mennonite, and I would be no more bigoted to describe a person as a Mennonite if that person was dressed like one).

That said, if the fellow did in fact bump her baby stroller and she was not in the wrong, she should be filling in a police report. (I don’t know how difficult that is to do in New York though.)

It’s not like Twitter has ever been used to call someone out before.

Ugh. Not up for this right now.

re: #482 dangerman

Critics invariably point out that Flake was facing abysmal approval ratings when he decided not to run for re-election, and that polling showed him losing to far-right candidate Kelli Ward. If he can’t hold onto his seat in his home state of Arizona, the thinking goes, what makes him think that he could be elected president?

This misses the point: Flake would be running to make a statement, not because he necessarily thought he could win.

One endorsement that he’s already received is that of Mesa mayor John Giles, who in November was caught on a hot mic telling Flake to run for president.

“And I am not throwing smoke at you, but you are the guy,” Giles said. “Just for fun, think about how much fun it would be, just to be the foil, you know, and point out what an idiot this guy [Trump] is.”

He retires from the Senate, spends some time in the political wilderness, allows Trump to become more unstable, and then runs as the No True Scotsman conservative that Never Trumpers (and what I assume will be a thing by 2020 in the GOP: No More Trumpers) can rally around. It’s 8 months of “Republicans in Disarray” stories and even though Flake has no chance, because like Ryan he doesn’t realize that his constituency doesn’t really exist anymore (at least not inside the GOP), it weakens Trump who can’t just spend 2020 being president (which is the true incumbent’s advantage). Ultimately, this leads to Trump being soundly defeated, hopefully by someone like Kamala Harris so that he’ll have the indignity (in whatever is left of his addled mind) of being beaten by a woman and a minority at the same time.

Multiple challengers would make it much more like the Democratic primary in 1968. All the other examples there was one legitimate challenger (Reagan in ‘76, Kennedy in ‘80, Buchanan in ‘92). But I doubt Trump would have the grace to step aside.*

About 10 years ago I did the online test and got called for a cattle call test in Chicago. Drove to Des Moines and took a Greyhound to Chicago. There were about 100 people packed into a conference room at the Intercontinental Hotel. First the moderator had each person stand and tell an interesting story about themselves. That took a couple of hours because a lot of the people there rambled on about how great they were. The best one was a 20 year old kid stood up, stated “I like pie.” and sat right back down. Then we took a 50 question test that was pre-recorded by Trebek via a big screen TV at the front of the room. There were 9 people who answered every question correctly, and six of those got to stay and everyone else was dismissed. Yep, I was one of the 6. Then for the next couple of hours we played mock games with little bicycle bells for buzzers. At the end of that 4 people got to stay behind and the other 2 were dismissed. We 4 then signed some papers that basically said if called we had to pay our own way to LA for the show and that even though we had come this far there was no guarantee we’d be called at all. As far as I know, the only one of us that actually got called to go and tape in LA was the handsome 20-something fellow whose interesting story about himself was that his mother once met the Mahatma.

I agree with your husband on the spaghetti squash - my wife tried that a couple times and it was just .. ugh… I didn’t like it no matter what was put on it. But cauliflower rice is great. And my wife once breaded chicken with cauliflower (with sriracha) and baked it. It was absolutely amazing.

looking for alternatives, i made cauliflower crust pizza a few times
basically cauliflower, egg, and goat cheese

it was…interesting (and kosher)

I never would have expected to see someone like Austin on Jeopardy. He had such a Fuck This And Fuck You attitude. I know a lot of people didn’t like him, but I loved him. I remember a guy, whose name escapes me now, and he was on the spectrum, for sure. He was like a machine. I think they are trying to now show that you don’t have to be this perfect person to be smart and smart encompasses a lot of different people.

KGxvi  Mar 6, 2018 • 10:41:47am

Nashville’s mayor had to resign after pleading guilty to felony theft, apparently she was also having an affair with her bodyguard, and that part of the investigation gave us this:

“(Probable cause exists to) show that on May 15, 2017 and on October 18, 2017, he used this phone to photograph a nude or partially nude female,” the documents say. “It will also show that Rob Forrest’s timecards report that he was working while these photographs were taken.”

The TBI “believes probable cause exists to show that Rob Forrest was indeed not working at the time (two photos) were taken but was rather participating in the affair with Megan Barry at these times,” the document adds.

TBI investigators say they looked at Forrest’s phone and his emails after Barry admitted publicly to the affair. Two of his emails each contained one photo that showed a partially nude or fully naked woman, court documents say. The documents do not say the woman is the mayor.

The photos were taken while Forrest and Mayor Megan Barry were in Washington on business trips. On January 31, Barry apologized at a news conference for having the affair with Forrest, who had resigned.

I don’t know the details of the affair, but obviously it was not smart. But what amazes me more than anything is that the guy took these pictures on a government issued phone. Why would anyone take nudes on an employer (government or not) issued phone? That’s just asking to get in trouble.

I was invited to an in-person I guess around 2012 or so. They didn’t do it like that. There wasn’t this process of successive elimination like you describe. Everybody did the written test, then everybody got to play a short mock round with buzzers, 3 at a time. At the start of each mock round, each player was asked a question or two about him/herself.

I may be wrong but I didn’t really get the impression that personality was the most important factor in whether you were going to get on the show. (I mean have you seen some of these people?) We were told that your performance on the written test was the most important factor.

Anyway, they said that everyone would be kept on file for up to a year, and could potentially be called at any point during that year. I never got called though.

Sounds like they changed the audition format a bit after I did it. Or maybe it was a regional way, or it depended on how many were in the cattle call. Anyway, that sounds like a much more pleasant experience all around. I would have much rathered played mock games with everyone. There were a lot of really sweet people who were there just because they loved Jeopardy. I only made it as far as I did because I’m one of those people who retains unimportant info. The others who made it to the end were highly educated. I lasted one year at UNLV before I had to go back home to take care of younger siblings for my father and stepmom #1.

Though I’m sure that that analysis is probably unlikely to get much media coverage.

*A generally wise move, if tragically unavoidable most of the time.

This is from a friend (Korean and reasonably familiar with Korean affairs (or, at least, more so than I):

Just to be clear, the DPRK has consistently called, for generations, robust guarantees from the U.S. for its security—in other words, the signing of a peace treaty to formally end the Korean War, and thus, remove the need for nuclear weapons, not to mention US-ROK military “exercises” and other plans and rehearsals for regime change.

They haven’t wavered from that position, while successive U.S. administrations have confusingly wavered between a range of hostile (“axis of evil”) and less-hostile (“strategic patience”) and even positive engagement (the last year of Clinton’s presidency with Albright’s visit to Pyongyang) policies. So in a sense, this is nothing new. They’ve frozen their nuclear weapons program before, and even destroyed, with US officials present to verify, nuclear weapons installations. And when promises haven’t been kept—such as the oil shipments and light water reactors that the U.S. was supposed to deliver as written in the 1994 Agreed Framework—the DPRK quickly revived its nuclear programs. We’ve heard this song.

But hopefully, this time, the song will be more on key and last a little longer.
