The weather is finally changing, around here…. a cold front moving through, and it’s been raining nonstop for the last four hours or so.  Driving home was an interesting adventure.  Apparently the signal patterns on the night time AM band predicting the weather change was accurate again. The change did come, and right on time. […]

I must say, James Joyner disappointed me this morning. I admit, I came down on him pretty hard… and particularly hard for someone I so often agree with on most matters…  Perhaps overly so, but bless it all, why on earth would someone with a capacity of at least two brain cells capitulate to these […]

As an update to my comments on Captain Ed’s post on Newt and ‘free speech’, yesterday… I note Andy McCarthy over at The Corner Captain Ed offers an uncharacteristically overwrought analysis of Newt Gingrich’s sensible argument that the current threat – jihadists plotting mass-murder in a world where weapons of mass destruction are increasingly accessible […]

Just got back from a trip to the rail line.  Matt, my older boy wanted to try his hand at some Night photos.  Still plenty warm, around here, probably the last warm night of the year, and I wanted to take advantage of it.  I had to run out for some gas, anyway.  To the […]

Hoystory looks at this bit with NBC unilaterally deciding Iraq is in a Civil war, and asks a question I don’t think I’ve seen elsewhere: The closest comparison to Iraq that I can think of — and it was less violent than what we’ve got going in Iraq today — was the conflict in Northern […]

The New York Times just can’t figure out why dispite affirmative action hires by major law firms, white males are more apt to make partner:    Thanks to vigorous recruiting and pressure from corporate clients, black lawyers are well represented now among new associates at the nation’s most prestigious law firms.

However, he may have taken a stumble yesterday when he posited that freedom of speech may have to be curtailed in order […]

Look, let’s stipulate up front that Glenn Greenwald’s connections to the real world are tenuous at best. But this morning comes one of the finer demonstrations of such: It really is astonishing to observe as the media fabricates some storyline out of whole cloth — “Hastings v.

Mrs. Pelosi has, apparently, come to her senses. Michele Malkin reports that Representative Alcee Hastings is out of consideration for the chair of the House Intellgence Committee.  I commend Mrs. Pelosi for the move.  The nation will be better served but alas Rush LImbaugh will have to work harder Not to worry there are still […]

Apparently, the new hosting site isn’t much better. No word, either. Update: (Billy) Bloody domain registration.  There were confusements, I didn’t get a reminder, and here we are.  I think I just got it squared away, so it should be too long before it’s back up.  Hours at most. Good to hear.
