You are correct, Iggy. We tend to deal with the world the way it actually is. They deal with it as though it's the way they want it to be. And they consider the way they want it to be reality.
TK, I'm pretty sure Patterico had been chewing lead paint chips for several years now.
CH, he does look really dumb, but it appears to be working. He's moving up in the polls.
Well, yes, Theo, but they would blame Trump for the first couple of succeeding administrations.
New post is up.

Comments on listening to music from various sources on various devices reminds me that my very expensive hearing aids with Bluetooth are excellent for listening to music. Like I hadn't heard it for many years.

OK, I read the first page and a half of comments. Thanks to all of you, this is a very good blog to read (comments on) again. I find that I'm now neglecting other things in order to try to keep up.

CH, thank you. I'm glad you see it that way. You are an astute commenter. Now I just have to try to remember who all of your nomenclature refers to. ;)

Dr J, a lot of us feel that way. I'm not picking on CH. I do like his comments. I wish the vulgarity level would drop a bit (not necessarily disappear). I came to this site every day. Have for many years. I don't comment often, but this childish rivalry isn't what I come for. Therefore, I come a lot less often now.

Thanks. I hate being wrong. After being corrected, I no longer have to be wrong.

I'm fascinated by the arguments about beginning/end dates of decades. Does your first year of life start at your first birthday? Are you not one and a half 6 months into the year after your first birthday? If not, then half of what? You don't start with "year zero", you start with day zero. If we move original Christmas slightly to January 1, then we have 365 days until the end of that year. So new year's day on January 1, year 1 AD (or CE if you prefer) begins the second year, not the first. That keeps up for 2020 years. And then some, I'll bet. January 1, 2000 began the first year of the millennium. December 31 of that year ended it.

I'm hoping the left didn't learn anything from the UK election.

I think y'all Catholics are going to have to make a new Pope. This one continues to malfunction.

Hello all. Happy Thanksgiving. We just finished our third (of four) Thanksgiving dinner. I will be fasting every Monday for months.

The entire Democrat agenda is a political liability this year.

Clarice says she has to cut and paste in order to post here. I'm just checking to see if I have the same problem.

I thought "spathic" was Mike Tyson commenting on someone's loss of muscle control.
Buckeye, my friend's name is Alan Voiles. Doug will know him. Alan's company is probably the only one that lost it's butt on this deal.

Buckeye, A friend and his mother were also one of the founding families for Golden Harvest Seeds. I worked for them for several years after graduation from college. They are from the tiny town of Eldred, Illinois.

I was one of those horrible corn rapers. As a teen, I spent summers working in a field lab for Funks G Hybrids, cross pollinating corn. The horror brought on by the unleashing of those repressed memories is beyond your imagining.

Wow, Melinda. Burke being Chief seems to go even beyond our standard Illinois practices.

From Monty James (a commenter at Ace of Spades): It's not 11d chess. It's just been so long since we've seen a Republican get in and mix it up with Democrats that we confuse it for some master plan; most of them don't like to get their bow ties mussed.
