    Article in Savannah Connect Magazine

    Warmer than Lake Erie, no doubt. But one thing you've always made clear is how it isn't clear at all down there. You know, they do get there later in the article, how you have a powerful light and can't hardly see anything. I'm surprised this earlier line made its way in though.

    Songs that have been ruined for you

    I don't need the guy to be a babysitter, he'd be the worst choice. Directly to the question, the music was always first rate. Then, when combined with the dance moves and commanding stage presense, makes him a unique talent. Moonwalking is cool.

    Lara Logan - you shall be missed.

    He didn't kill them, the Taliban killed them. Pulling out of Afghanistan was a good idea; that Biden* did it in a such a bumbling incompetent way that it made his poll numbers tank is on him but the deaths are not.

    Songs that have been ruined for you

    None that I didn't already hate. I boycotted Michael Jackson songs for a few years and tried to convince myself that I shouldn't like him or should stop listening to him... after he died, I tuned back in.

    Tiger Woods Retiring

    I only know what I read in this thread and I'm confused. He had a brilliant run for a few years and was young enough to dominate the sport for way, way longer than he wound up doing before the bottom fell out.
  6. He picked the right profession. Not that you aren't a good people person, just you can fill in anywhere. Just that for people like him who can't get along well with others .... this is something he can do by pretty much himself and only ever have to deal with one or two other people willing to tollerate him.

    Michigan school shooting

    A mostly peaceful mass shooting. Terrible

    Jack Dorsey is out at Twitter

    I guess you can't have a homeless guy with squirrels in his beard running a Big Tech corporation like Twitter anymore. Since Twitter's symbol is a bird, they've replaced him with Mrs. Crabtree, formerly South Park's school bus driver. I don't expect any change, just more extreme leftist censorship, but it is good to see Dorsey on his ass.

    Steve Martin - 5 Christmas Wishes

    Steve Martin together with Michael Cain in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is one of the funniest movies I've ever seen.

    Lubbock TX shooting

    The unification of the Tims.

    Lubbock TX shooting

    The way I see it is the dead guy was rightly pissed that his ex-wife didn't have the kid ready for his child custody agreement. He wasn't being violent, and was justifiably pissed. Also, he wasn't trespassing either, seeing as the court permitted him to be there. The homeowner escalated things by retrieving the gun and when dad Ahmed Arbury-ed the gun, he got McMichaled by the homeowner. I see viable murder charges, so put me down in agreement with Tim Hauck and ES&C.

    Lubbock TX shooting

    We've seen lots of Hamlet book, stage, and movie spinoffs since Shakespeare's time.

    Get your shopping done early in San Fran

    They're getting quite brazen. Apparently when you're looting for more than $950, you don't want video footage. Even leftist DAs who routinely mouth empty words about an alleged willingness to prosecute violent crimes, may put down the coffee mug and get around to doing so if you pester them relentlessly. For their part, the media is good at taking offense and pestering relentlessly when it's one of their own that gets killed.
  14. These advertisers have some algorytms that indicate you are interested in the Salvation Army, likely based on you clicking on this link.

    Steve Martin - 5 Christmas Wishes

    I saw this decades ago, maybe only once and long forgotten, but I do know that I watched it before. Pretty good.
