Hmmm. Our lake had big Trump flags, too. Not even mine. I don’t own one.

I asked God to forgive my trespass on His time. :) Precedent: "Praise God and pass the ammunition."

At the radio station the tape decks handled 10" reels.
Jim,Sunny. My email to AP: "I suppose news isn’t news if AP doesn’t report it.SEATTLE - The family of a 19-year-old shot and killed at the edge of the Seattle CHOP zone was laid to rest today in Kent. The father of Horace Lorenzo Anderson Jr. told us, he still hasn’t received a call about his son’s death from the Mayor of Seattle Jenny Durkan, but he got a condolence call this morning from President Trump.Remind me again about George Floyd memorial coverage."
Peter, practice your scales.
Well, not click but COntrol-click.
Tweeted to @Iowahawk [Click for the entire pic] Hi, #DavesCarIDService. Before he died, Dad donated his Packard to the Association for the Blind. Hard to clutch and hard to steer. Just wanted you to enjoy the car. He would have been 100 years old today, passing away two years ago.
You take that back, Lyle!
Failing to recognize your hubris is not only a human failing, it’s hubris.
RG: So . . . where do y'all think that new Statuary Garden should be placed? One garden? Why stop at Orlando? One more at the geographic center of the continental US. Four more near each of the four corners of the country within easy driving distance for families. Smaller satellite locations in metro areas, sports destinations, historic sites, and other travel locations. And the virtual statuary with the history of why each person’s contribution was special and what they had to go through to make it happen. The genius was to take the supposed strength of the opposition — demeaning of representations of great Americans — and turn it against them. More genius to salvage schooling from public curricula and shatter misrepresentations of the media lens. Being "offended" by the past is no longer the weapon Leftist activists and politicians hoped to use against America.
Trump stripped the gears of any opposition. How do you oppose individual excellence America nurtured?
Love to see a Cheyenne helicoper reach down and hook one or two of those vans blocking the road, hoist them up and let them loose from 500 feet into the woods.
Obama was a Ford not a Lincoln.
Jared Diamond: “Europeans entering Africa enjoyed the triple advantage of guns and other technology, widespread literacy, and the political organization necessary to sustain expensive programs of exploration and conquest.” BLM radicals, having learned enough from past experience, now work to destroy any awareness of it as they: - neuter the 2nd Amendment, - make schools ineffective, - and pervert government. BLM is more than con; it is a bald attempt to rule ... destined to fail for favoring Machiavelli over people and principles.
Frederick, is also smart ... giving the teacher what he or she wants.
Jennifer and the Gov are clearly closely related.
Jim,sunny, Diamond was worthwhile for pointing out across time the consequences of the five major linguistic cultures in Africa. Sunuvagun if the archeology didn't show that the minority black culture elobowed aside the others. Is it no wonder that BLM's historical memory starts on this side of the ocean?

Twitter DM'd Taranto just now: "Hello... Curious. Do get Op Ed emails that start "Dear Mr. Taranto" or does the staff reject them before you see them? I wrote to you calling out AP for pillowing news with fluff. I edit them every day. Thnx. Regards/Stephen"

jimmyk, that’s why I started my email -- "Dear Mr. Taranto:"

jimmyk, one would think there would be interest, ... but my last two documented emails to the WSJ Op-Ed editor and my reply to an Editor & Publisher column by Robert Curley helped me appreciate the sound that [Crickets] make. ;-)

The 2005 National Review article by Victor Davis Hanson is an excellent companion to Jared Diamond's "Guns, Germs, and Steel".

Our condolences, Stephanie, to you and your family on the loss of your father. A lot to be said for "soft landings". Dad died two years ago today, resting quietly in bed after lunch while Mom was with him. Prayers for all, but particularly for strength for your Mom and for a happy celebration of his life. Mom, Happy and healthy at almost 99, after 90 years of knowing Dad, considers it almost as if he is still with us. May that be the case with your Mom.
