La Marseillaise

Vive Le Quatorze Juillet! (An Annual Tradition) Arise, children of the Fatherland, The day of glory has arrived! Against us of the tyranny The bloody banner is raised, The bloody banner is raised, Do you hear, in the countryside, The roar of those ferocious soldiers? They’re coming right into your arms To slit the throats …

A Game Without Pity (But A Lot Of Cheating)

The socially redeeming aspect of golf lies in the vast number of lawyers and bankers and managers who play it, and when you think of the damage they would do if they were at the job instead, you can see why golf courses are a wise investment for any municipality. So Trump is at Turnberry …

A Bad Week

So over last weekend Theresa May had a big Tory summit at Chequers to reconcile the Hard-Brexit plurality with the reality of her new “Softer” Brexit policies. Policies that, soft as they are from a Tory point of view, are intolerably flawed according to the European Union and have been already rejected as insufficient. As …

What He Knew And When He Knew It

Trump? It remains to be seen, I’m talking about Jim Jordan who, as I pointed out yesterday, is in big trouble for his Paternoesque tolerance of sexual abuse of the Ohio State University Men’s Wrestling Team by team physician Richard Strauss (Jim Jordan was Assistant Coach). Now I understand how all 9 (and counting) accusers …

55%

Yup, this is everything the mighty United States can do after stealing 103 babies under the age of 5 years old. Fifty seven have been ‘reunitied’ (according to the government and who knows what they mean by that of if they’re making it up out of the whole cloth?) and forty six have been left …

The Deeper Republican Perversion

One need neither look far or hard to find many Republican Sexual Perverts. I’m talking people who like getting their diapers changed, folks with a “wide stance” that abhor homosexuality but see nothing but “natural urges” in bestiality, and especially those who are pedophiles that will with equal alacrity sodomize a Page or terrorize teens …

“Autumn”

The best evidence is that of Harold Bride, junior wireless operator, who left in a collapsible boat only after the Boat Deck was awash up to the base of the funnel. It was preceded by a ragtime tune unknown to Bride. It ended gurgle, gurgle, gurgle. Everything you need to know about the Brexit Crisis …

Baked In The Cake

I hope I’m spoiling no child’s illusion of Kris Kringle by pointing out that Professional Wrestling is totally fake and scripted. Well at least to the point where character arcs are the product of writing (not very good writing but nevertheless) and individual performers discuss and choreograph their moves. It is “Entertainment” as the name …

Direct Action (Red Hen Again)

You may well ask: “Why direct action? Why sit ins, marches and so forth? Isn’t negotiation a better path?” You are quite right in calling for negotiation. Indeed, this is the very purpose of direct action. Nonviolent direct action seeks to create such a crisis and foster such a tension that a community which has …

CRISPR Critters

CRISPR is an abbreviation of Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats. It’s a virus that targets certain DNA sequences effectively chopping large genes into shorter, more simply sequenced bits. Or that’s what it was designed for. With the addition of Cas9 (not to be confused with Ice 9, an arrangement of ice crystals that remain …
