Here’s a great read about a great man and role-model. I’ll think of Paul each time I dollop some Tabasco on my eggs.
Here’s Ron Seely’s excellent report from today’s Natural Resources Board hearing on the use of dogs in wolf hunting.
Read through to the end – find out why hunters like me, who are against wolf hunting, shudder any time we see her show up.
At first I thought, “What’s this world coming to?” Then I watched the tape.
I think the term is “Man-Child.”
I’ve read this story in this month’s Esquire twice now. I’ll probably read it again not because it’s such a great piece of writing (which it is) but more so because I just can’t fathom how our government treats our warriors. Why do we – the citizens who benefit from all our men and women in the military do for us – allow our government to treat our warriors this way?
Listen – there are lots of causes out there. Most are worthy of our attention. But we need a new cause and it should shoot right up to the very top of the national consciousness. Anyone who has seen battle – anyone – shouldn’t have to worry about health care, a job, or whether their family will be taken care of should something happen to them. They simply shouldn’t have to worry about anything. We owe them and we owe them big. Anything less is shameful. Think about this the next time we protest because frankly, any other cause pales next to the cause of taking care of our battle-worn veterans once and for all.
I find this fascinating. Particularly Bill Carter’s observation that NBC has nothing in prime time that even comes close ratings-wise to a show on cable where people do nothing but talk about another show on cable.
These guys have their hands in so much crap it isn’t even funny anymore. Are you too regulated Wall Street and Big Bank? Bullshit. You’re not regulated enough.
There are more than a few Wisconsin pro-mining legislators for whom attendance should be required.
How many times have I seen it? It never gets old, it only gets better. And I never realized until this showing that Aimee Mann is Nine Toes.
Just heard Magic Slim passed away at 75. He was a fixture of the Chicago Blues scene – a protege if you will of Muddy Waters. I remember meeting him years ago at an in-store at Beggar’s Tune record store in Green Bay. He and The Teardrops rocked the place and he was one of the nicest guys I’d ever met. Rest in peace.
