Quick catchup notes.

Bori, I read your comment and i think it is an accurate summary of the confusion and how the timeline can be flawed.

Windansea, you actually suggested that I shouldn't be afraid to put my theory out on JOM. I consider that a childish taunt. Let's get a show of hands of anyone who has been here for the last 8 years that thinks that I am afraid to write anything on JOM. We know the answer.

If you want to see my theory, go back and look for it.

Clarice, you are spot on with the brush clearing. Tom McClintock has some good stuff regarding that on his website.

The power companies will take a beating on this fire, IMO.

Broken record time!

I see during catch up (2 threads back) that there is discussion of Trade schools etc. my current co-pilot is very happy that his oldest just got picked up by the Air Guard flying some Military variety of the 767. That is great and he is guaranteed employment by that move for the rest of his life since the Airlines are screaming for new qualified pilots, since 99% of Americans can't even drive a stick shift anymore.

This son went to a small Christian Colege in Texas named Laturno(sp) where besides the decent curriculum the kids learn flying since it is where they train students to do the aviation puddle-jumping that Missionary flying into the hinterlands demands in South America.

I would never have thought about how they get Missionary Pilots until my good co-worker mentioned it. For the money spent, I would much rather have the Laturno puddle jumping skill at graduation than the Ancient History degrees from Dartmouth, since one is a skill somebody will pay you for, all things being equal since they ain't of course. 😀

Oh well. Simply passing this on that the civilian Aviation business is open and becoming more and more desperate for pilots, and I'd feel safer having an AA Aviation degree out of CWU in Washington State hauling my behind around than a Political Science grad student from any Ivy in America. Sorry for sounding like a broken record on this, but it's what I do and see everyday. We are in essence glorified bus drivers. Anybody reasonably intelligent and competent can do it, but from the outside I think it appears so daunting and unreachable that few folks do it, so nobody knows it's available. And in the long run it's the funniest occupation and easiest occupation in the world. 2nd Margharitta talking.

Today: Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert was in absolute shock as Luke Rosiak revealed that Imran Awan spent several months each year in Pakistan and was STILL accessing the House server remotely.

“I’ve seen records indicating that he (Imran Awan) spent 3 to even more months per year in Pakistan. I’ve also seen emails that indicated that he was doing his job remotely in Pakistan,” Rosiak said.

“So he had access in doing the job in providing security for House members from Pakistan?? Seriously?!” Gohmert asked.

Gohmert was in absolute shock as he continued to wrap his head around the fact that a person was able to access a government server from Pakistan, calling the news “staggering”.

Yesterday:. First, I should note that it was standing room only in the packed courtroom at the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia Friday morning ... okay, just kidding, actually, only a few reporters sat in the mostly empty wooden benches in the back of the courtroom. Anyone who didn’t know this was the latest scene in a slowly exploding political scandal would have thought this was only a forgettable bank fraud case.
The deeper you dig the more it becomes clear this case is about much more than bank fraud.
Awan’s attorney, Chris Gowen, even told me: “This case is hardly newsworthy.”

The Canyon 2 fire near us is the second big fire in 10 days in the same general location. I wonder what the fire marshals are going to find?

Those Napa/Sonoma fires seem really odd. All over the place within a small distance.

We were warned that this year would have extreme fire hazard conditions because of the winter's rain.

There have been several cases of arson in CA that have resulted in life terms or worse. Some very stupid/wicked people out there.

You're being way too modest imo. People who are really good at something get a false sense of ease about the difficulty level. A friend of mine once complimented a really good pianist who said "eh, anyone can do this". When he told me that I said first that it was empirically false and that he was just illustrating how easy it was to him.

I am sure that you are right and those issues are probably connected.

On the other hand, it seems to me that, as is discussed in this article, there is some degree of financial exposure to a great many large corporations, including the Walt Disney Company.

Dinging those companies for big bucks either through settlements, damage awards, or federal fines, would sort of shut a lot of these people up and keep them from throwing money around at leftist causes.

Jim, I recall a similar cheating scandal at West Point in the mid 70s (Carter was President). It led my grandfather to recommend I avoid West Point and go OCS after college instead. I would have been the third Henry to become a cadet, following my grandfather and uncle.

Henry, I agree.

Any pilot would have loved to live in the earlier years of Aviation and especially during the amazing years of WW2 Aviation. Since I never was given the anti-gravitational devices I was promised in my youth, I am so glad to be stuck in time where I am, in regards to having amazing super powered machines to criss-cross the globe and getting well paid for the amazingly fun experience before the robot drivers take over. I just got out of 2 day Sim training 2 days ago and Techno-creep is insidious and continues to demand I comply with so many bullshit variables that in the not too distant future only robots will be able to comply with the assenting, irrelevant rugulations they keep heaping on us.

No problem, Michael. In SoCal we had a recent wave of roadside fires. The Heroes took to the TV to inform us that all of the events were because of faulty catalytic converters.

Never mind that in the 40+ years of converters on cars roaming our freeways we have never seen anything like what they were claiming.

I ruled the coverup down to a few possibilities:

▪The fire chief's son is a pyro.

▪The new diesel particulate filter mandate wasn't ready for show time and the State forced soon to fail systems on us.

▪The mandated crap gas finally took its toll on an otherwise safe component.

Glorified bus drivers reminds me of a Transport Union Strike for more pay many years ago in Victoria, Australia.

Fro train drivers their starting point was the salary of a Qantas Jumbo pilot, because they ferried the same, if not more passengers. For bus drivers the claim was for the lowered to that of pilot's salary of the equivalent passenger sized aircraft.

Heard on the news that they have relieved both officers on the McCain (ship which had the accident) of command and they will be leaving the Navy.

It's a shame that the incompetence didn't show up sooner to save the lives of those sailors.

The thing is, daddy, is that for a bunch of us it's never really feels SAFE to fly--I always say the Lord's Prayer as we lift, and try to count the babies and toddlers and dogs onboard in a completely panicked attempt to bargain God into not slaughtering innocents (so that I myself would have a collateral benefit). I know God isn't fooled, but he works in mysterious ways.

I put the USS Franklin Battle of 19 Mar 1945 up on the last thread. It details one of the most heroic actions to save a US warship ever. Also some US MIA INFO. Last article on the thread. Well worth reading, IMO.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Catsmeat,

I only got over my fear of flying very late in life. I have no idea why, because for years I only flew when I absolutely had to and then would flinch at every bump or noise and spet my time looking out the window for oncoming planes which were dangers for collision.

I really do sympathize. Maybe you will get healed of the phobia like I was, because it's a real burden.

jimmyk

for a bunch of us it's never really feels SAFE to fly

I was kind of that way, though not so nervous, but our cousin getting seriously injured in that Amtrak accident a couple of years ago finally drove home to me that flying is one of the safest things I do, transportation-wise. The taxis to and from the airport are the more dangerous part of the trip, and of course trains derail. Now I don't really think twice about it.

Probably whatever is on the POS cars they let drive over here from Mexico.

They would cover that up as well. ;-)

I car really has to be running like crap to spit out a converter. When it does, most of the pieces end up in the muffler. The broken up "brick" dissipates the heat fairly rapidly and it won't be acting as a catalyst so much once it is no longer parallel to the exhaust stream.

Once it is in a 300 degree muffler, it will cool to that temp, what ever makes it out of the pipe will drop even more.

Then, the cooled piece has to make it 50-100 feet off the side of the road to start the fire.

No way. There isn't enough velocity to send the piece that far. It would make there if other cars' tires kicked it around enough, I guess. But it would be cooling more and more while that was happening.

Could it happen? Maybe. 10 times in 3 weeks during a media blitz that we are in brush fire red flag warning time? Not likely.

But the academies, especially West Point and Annapolis, have their own histories and traditions that should not have allowed this to happen.

That it *has* happened suggests the problem goes far, far beyond Obama's tenure. I mean, am I to believe this laxity just -- poof! -- all of a sudden occurred in 2009-10?

No. And Lieutenant Colonel Robert M. Heffington verifies this in his letter:

[D]uring my time on the West Point faculty (2006-2009 and again from 2013-2017), I personally witnessed a series of fundamental changes at West Point that have eroded it to the point where I question whether the institution should even remain open.

That's incredibly strong language. Later, he gave a clear example of the very serious MODERN problem:

It seems that the Academy’s senior leaders are intimidated by cadets. During my first tour on the faculty (I was a CPT at the time), I noticed that 4th class cadets were going on leave in civilian clothes when the regulation clearly stated they were supposed to be wearing a uniform. During a discussion about cadet standards between the BTO and the Dept. of History faculty, I asked why plebes were going on leave in civilian clothes. His answer astonished me: “That rule is too hard to enforce.” Yet West Point had no problem enforcing that rule on me in the mid-1990s. I found it impossible to believe that the several hundred field grade officers stationed at West Point could not make teenagers wear the uniform. This anecdote highlights the fact that West Point’s senior leaders lack not the ability but the motivation to enforce their will upon the Corps of Cadets.

This is completely upside down and absolutely intolerable

I wonder if this has something to do with the very modern corruption of our political class, and these are the folks -- politicians -- recommending so many of the students.

It could be we need to totally review and revamp how these academies seek out, interview, and admit students. But, standards must be maintained and enforced.

These academies have been heavy into engineering, and fields of study may need to be diversified (hell, such may have already happened for all I know).

But this has to be fixed. Right now.

As far as I am concerned, if Weinstein used corporate funds to pay off victims and then claimed it as a business expense, the DOJ should investigate.

If the DOJ can investigate harassment claims at corporations and universities, why not Hollywood?

henry

RG, that is interesting. I wonder if a long and unpopular war plays in, plus social change forced through. The 70s honor code scandal followed a long war, introduction of coeducation to the academy, and a bad economy where people went for a free degree, not a career. My grandfather checked (as only generals can) and concluded that combination eroded morale, then discipline collapsed. He further concluded that the restoration of discipline would lead the cadets to drive out "careerists" especially those with family traditions at the academy. Sounds similar now. Needs a new superintendent in command, and repeal of Obama's social experimentation (eg cut the transgender crap). Then a crackdown.

One interesting thing was a "band" that performed there using gargage can lids and big emply water containers as their instruments. Found out they were supported by the State Dept. to go around the world pushing their "save the earth" campaign. I tried to learn more but my hubby said it would be a waste of time so we moved on.

The tall grass warning has been around since the beginning. Every owner's manual mentions it, though nobody reads it.

A functional converter will climb over 800 degrees on the converter shell easily.

If the fire heroes said that the car ran off the road into a 3 year old pile of tumbleweeds, I would be less suspicious.

TMZ says that Weinstein has NOT left the country.

daddy

Cats meat,

I understand the fear of flying syndrome as it is natural in part to humans, and we are divorced in general from how planes fly so naturally humans are leery.

I note than when I read in England during Darwin times about the early speed of trains the folks in England comment in their diaries on how both terrifying and exhilarating it was to be smoking along at the astonishing clip of 30 or even 40 miles an hour!

If we all had the occasion to take private Pilots licenses, tho many would still remain terrified due to their personal nature, millions would realize "Oh, so this is all there is to it? Well hell, anybody can do this. Why the heck I was afraid of this beats me, now that I see how easy it is to do."

It strikes me as as no more complex than the simplistic societal assumption voiced by Talking Barbie a few years back with her latest version that said: "Gee, math is hard!"

At least in the old days we built generations of teenagers who wanted to drive. Now we have built generations where no kid knows squat about cars and want somebody else to drive them everywhere.

To me it is an intentional regression from personal reliability and confidence towards a shared ignorance and acquiescent groupthink. I can't figure out why we capitulate to it, and a great regret of my life as a dad was being unable to get the girls interested in getting their Private Pilots license. But oh well, you can lead a kid to the Flight Line but you can't make them rotate:(
