Mrs Dr J, I'm so very sorry for your loss. Dr J was a presence on this blog and will be missed by all of us. To extend the famous JOM meetups he offered to get together for a drink when I was out in the Sacramento area, which is where most of my family is, and it's my loss that it won't happen. His comments made it apparent that you made him very happy and I'm sure he did the same for you.

It seems like someone with artistic talent could produce a visual here. First person I thought of is Michael Ramirez.

I remember Grenell calling out Wood for telling GA voters to stay home for the runoffs. Can't find a link on it right now though. Not sure it mattered one way or the other.

Condolences, Jane. It was admirable what you did to make Kiwi's life as good as it could be. Maybe Reich backed into this point - as Biden's dementia progresses, what we'll see is more id and less ego?

If the hookers were previously employed by Hunter, it would be perfect.
Do I remember correctly a couple of bombs were found at both DNC and RNC HQs on Wednesday? Doesn't seem to fit the "Trump is solely to blame" narrative, and we are not learning much about those, are we? Probably an "ongoing investigation" will allow them to hide it if needed. Seems to me that those could have done more damage than the insurrectionists, unless they all had Covid.

Reynolds is just trying to protect his brand, but the thing is he diluted it via his cobloggers. They provide a lot of the content and its good to read different viewpoints, but when the cobloggers span from those who deny the vote fraud to those who acknowledge that but still think Trump is icky to those who see tyranny around the corner, some reader pushback in these times should be expected.

CCgirl, I had "Convoy" on 45 when it came out, I got this radio a couple years later. I think my CB calls may have led to more perplexed silence than replies.

I hope my limited radio experience is of some help so no problem Rocco. My goal was to have an alternative to communicate with my wife should we be separated and cell service becomes problematic, but only at distances of a few miles at most. So GMRS or FRS, the latter doesn't require a license but works on frequencies that could be more crowded. Maybe if we move to the country I'd look more into ham and repeaters and such. As a kid in the 70s I had a combo AM/FM/CB that I mostly used to listen to music but once in a while I'd switch it to CB mode and say "Breaker breaker" into the mike. We were not close to any interstates but it probably wasn't the best thing to do. 😁

But there are other radio brands like Midland that are perfectly legal and easy to use, but probably still made in China.

I am not a radio expert but GMRS radios don't require you to take any test but to be legal you need a license, which I got recently for $70 for ten years. Amazon sells (Chinese of course) radios that are more powerful than allowed by law that work on the GMRS frequencies but also on others that can intrude on emergency services.

I'm not saying anything that you all don't already know, but dealing with Durbin's logic is dealing with a sociopath. The constitutional process disrupted by unarmed people? It couldn't just happen later? And he's getting what he wanted, no discussion of what went on in the states, that's what was interrupted. If he could explain in detail what truth we need to know, I'd like to see that. Or maybe just read the transcript later, can't stand to look at him.

Today of all days I got a $100 check from the Philadelphia Republican City Committee for working election day, or trying to. The thing is, a couple weeks ago I got a check that I thought was for that. The first check didn't have an account named on it, but the envelope return address was the party HQ. I think some of this money I'll donate to Trump, he can spend it better than the local party anyway.

Maybe he didn't have an option, I'm just surprised Romney flies commercial.

Speaking of less likely connections, someone who commented here for some years was in my high school class, but we had not been in contact since. Because he commented using his own full name (first name Jim), and over time in his comments here revealed he played the bass, knew Russian, and went to Swarthmore, I figured that the guy I sat next to in English class senior year must be him. I found his own blog and reached out to him through that, maybe ten years ago now. We've been in contact sporadically since, not for a while though. Those of you who've been here a while know which Jim I'm talking about, I figure since he isn't here now I won't use his full name.
It's one of those days where the high temp happened while we were asleep and it will just continue to get colder, but closer to Christmas weather! Merry Christmas!

Iran, not Russia? Maybe the FBI is trying to show they aren't a one horse pony.

At the end of college fraternity meetings, we would pass the gavel and make some personal comments. When I got the gavel, I would end up seconding previous comments so frequently it became a running joke, but I'll do it here for Beester"s nice words. I will add that both my wife and I have PhDs and avoid the title of Dr. except when she is in the classroom. Does that catch me up?

DrJ, thanks for the meetup suggestion. All of those I've read about in the past always seemed so great and I was glad those involved had the opportunity. Sometime when my wife and I are back in that area it would be nice to do.
