Would what Mutt did be considered sock puppetry?

James D., Yankees lost in Game 4 to winnow out all their fair weather fans. (including me, sad to say.) (I denounce myself.) If they somehow survive tonight's bullpen v bullpen matchup, Game 7 might be interesting.

Iggy on the last thread around 10:43 pm made a lot of sense.

finding replacement windshields for antique cars always amazed me. I watched a Motor Trend channel (formerly Velocity) show where a guy cut down a Chevy Impala windshield to make it fit a Saab. I could not for the life of me figure out how he ever came to that conclusion. Saabs in the eighties had a unique windshield shape--they were more vertical than most other cars but had a much deeper curve longitudinally, like a Lola or a Panhard race car

"whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender." For the Yankee fans in the audience.

Gentlejim@ 6:22 made me laugh.
Thanks, MM, prayers do help.
Woke up with bitter thoughts. As many of you know, I work defending a small privately run company which I often defend in the vile cesspool of New York court system. Everything about the system is corrupt. I have on my desk a stack of cases which are almost cookie cutters of one another, each involving a building worker who is a member of the SEIU, specifically a subdivision of SEIU known as Local 32BJ. In each case, either a minor incident, or a staged accident is then played out through the same sickening scenario; the union member, usually immigrants, often from Albania, but from other countries, working as custodians or janitors or cleaning ladies, is steered to corrupt doctors who put them through a battery of medically unnecessary tests, tell them that their ordinary degenerative changes were directly caused by their "accidents" then send them to unscrupulous soft tissue mills where they receive hundreds of hours of unnecessary physical therapy, or send them for medically unnecessary arthroscopic surgery, or a current favorite, injections of steroids and anesthetics.They are steered to corrupt attorneys who process their tort suits. The whole system is financed by feeble workers compensation insurance carriers who rubber stamp all of these unnecessary medical procedures, The tort suits are brought in counties where the jury pools are made up of 90 per cent Democrats, all the judges are Democrats, and all the legal rules of civil procedure are written by a Democratically controlled legislature. My company's general liability insurance carrier is then forced to pay enormous sums of money in settlement or face runaway jury verdicts made by juries composed of a combination of irate minorities and liberals, and must, in the process, reimburse the workers compensation carrier. The happy SEIU worker gets a handsome settlement, which finances his or her retirement, the lawyers get enormous fees a portion of which they use to contribute to the election of more Democrat judges and legislatures and the honest working public and taxpayers are the only people who suffer. Sickening.
Frustrating season for the Yankees as they exceeded expectations in the regular season but are playing below their abilities in the post-season. Most Yankee fans are thankful we are going to have a deluge tomorrow so the team gets a day off and gets to regroup.
Thank you, MT for that 8:12, I did not know that about Daniel Hannan, in fact I knew nearly nothing about him. Would also like to add I am in awe when you talk about some of the work you did on cars in the past.
At least the Yankees won't lose tomorrow.
James D., I laughed at the Cardinals complaining about the dead balls, but someone did some calculations based on the launch angles and did confirm that the MLB switched balls for the playoffs.
jimmyk, thanks for bringing up Harold Bloom. I read a book of his entitled Genius, which is what he clearly was. Supposedly he had a photographic memory and could keep in his head the entirety of Shakespeare's works, yet got poor grades in high school.
Dems cheating at debates? shocking!

Since the gearheads are coming out of the woodwork, I saw some pretty nice cars at a car show in my area yesterday. There was a Tucker, a very sleek 74 Saab 99 in orange, a DB2, a very sharp Sunbeam Tiger, also in orange, along with a really cool 37 Chrysler Imperial with a phaeton roof

MM @ 10:38, since the other night I criticized the President for using the word "ass," in fairness, it should also be pointed out that Biden was the one who told Obama on an open mike, that Obamacare was a big eff-ing bomb deal.

iggy@ 10:29, what is your source for the lasting of diesel for years? I have read that 12 months is the outside limit. I am currently shopping for a small generator to keep a limited number of appliances operable in case of a blackout.
