Hey JOM, I heard you shot Typepad down...

You're welcome, JMH; it was a very pleasant surprise by my book group which otherwise mainly irks me with what they inflict on me. I even copied some of the influences Marra mentioned for further explorations.

Thanks, Suburan Gal.

I'm learning a ton today from the excellent historical links JOMer's have been posting.

I forgot you read it too, narc. Btw I've badgered the group into Costaguana in the near future. Klingsor was *very* well received and I got a great deal out of the reread.

Porchlight

Don't listen to clarice, Elliott! :) Stick around!

Porchlight

The great Tyndall. Thanks for those comments!

narciso

That's great, as I pointed out I've read it costaguana In both languages and Anne Mclean does a better job in English, the usual suspects have raved over his later work, which I found meh, another tale about drug war, and the one about a political caricaturist, which is too laden with uribe derangement. A picaresque Walter mitty comic homage to Conrad, you don't see that every day.

narciso

Volpi I don't think has come close with his follow ups either, the last a mash about banking genetic engineering and revolutionary upheaval, culminating in the late Yeltsin regime.

JMH, I went to St Petersburg in the early 90s. I got a sort of insider’s tour from a Russian cousin. It was still recovering from the Soviet era, very corrupt of course, but lots to see. The Hermitage was amazing, like a museum frozen in time as of 1917. It was also in June, so got to see the “White Nights.”

Porchlight,

Via Narciso's earlier link, here's a commentary on a TV Documentary that author Melvyn Bragg did on Tyndale, which adds a lot: The Most Dangerous Man in Tudor England – A Review and Rundown

I’ve wondered if the swatting didn’t push him over an edge.

daddy

Love this bit from my 12:40 Bragg link wherein we learn that famous Old Churchmen like Sir Thomas More were not afraid to use a bit of salty language to get their opinions across:

...Bragg went on to explain that Tyndale’s war of words with More came to a crescendo at that time. More believed that the Bible needed the filter of the Church’s teaching, whereas Tyndale believed that man was born with a spiritual sense; More wrote of Tyndale “You kiss the arse of Luther, the shit-devil, look, my fingers are smeared with shit when I try to clean your filthy mouth” (nice!) and Tyndale called More a lying papist and said that the Church was of the devil; More felt that the Bible was only parchment compared to the Church, but Tyndale saw the Bible as the word of God… and so on. More started executing Tyndale’s supporters but Tyndale carried on with his mission and began translating the Old Testament from Hebrew to English.

A Man For All Seasons Seasoned language.

narcis,o79

The fact his esteemed colleagues in the da's office or the bureau, whose lead agent then I think is mccabes replacement, didn't care, probably did more but it doesn't explain the why of his friendly fire.

narcis,o79

And what happened to more and Cromwell as it turned out. They ended up in a lot of night soil.

Thanks for that Bragg link, daddy.

Kinda tired of the More hagiography.

This is why Hilary mantel is a bit of a corrective in that regard over Thomas bolt, on many other matters she is quite mistaken.

Apparently Tester took one for the team, hoping to land a position after being voted out in November. Sleazeball

There may be about five radical progressives in the whole of the state of Montana..so who in hell was Tester playing to?

Ed

Iggy's plaudits for Norton Buffalo led to some research on him. Sorry I am not to have heard of him back when I had ears. But I did see there a reference to Elvin Bishop. I offer a recommendation to any KJOM spinners who might put up an Elvin Bishop tune or two. Travelin' Shoes was always a favorite.

Recollection: During the years I was making regular pilgrimages back to Arkansas to look after mom, I liked to travel at night. One trip I was somewhere between Flagstaff and the Meteor Crater with Travelin' Shoes blastin' out of the tape deck. I glanced down at the speedo and saw I was doin' 115!

Musta had a tailwind.

Another anecdote, coincidentally from that same stretch of I-40. Driving eastward again, same car, a dark gray 4Runner, I was clipping along with another tailwind, doing about 95 or so in broad daylight. As I was overtaking a nice sleek dark colored Mustang carrying a respectable looking black couple, I glanced up ahead and saw something ominous parked on an overpass. A trooper looking straight at us!

I backed off the gas and slid in behind the Mustang about the time we sailed under the overpass on which the trooper was laying rubber in reverse trying to get to the on ramp. Sho-nuf, he started down the ramp, code 3, red lights flashin'. I just let 'er coast down to something more legal speed-wise and braced myself for a meetup with the law. About then I glanced in the rearview to see where he was at, and he went flyin' by me like I was sittin' still. When I caught up with them, the trooper had that nice couple pulled over and was fixin' to give them a ticket. I just sedately drove on by, and stopped as soon as I could for a cup of coffee. Always feel a tiny twinge of guilt about that.

Ed

Thanks for that, Steph. You have impeccable taste! But, you know that already. :)

Over at Insty Ed Driscoll has pasted a large part of J'Pod's review of Jonah Goldbergs new book.

Of the hundreds of commenters on the paste and review, it is running about 100 to 1 hammering Jonah G. Whether all those negative comments are on point, he has certainly earned a healthy dose of animosity by his #NeverTrumpism over the last 2 years.

Greetings, Porchlight!

JMH, I believe that the players sold directly by major retailers come with a preset region code and that sellers offering "region-free" players simply reset that code prior to sending them off to the purchasers. I've read that it is the work of a moment to find instructions on performing such a reset oneself. My two unencumbered players from competing Japanese brands still function quite well several years after acquisition.

I have not been to Russia and I didn't know that Helsinki was used in films when the genuine article was off limits. I'm certainly not immune to the allure of the Northern Capital. It was only this week that I got around to watching a film set there. I came across it while visiting another former Soviet Republic and would not leave it on the shelf after reading the first sentence of the description.

Here's the song which served as the theme for several seasons of the Russian television show Gangster Petersburg.

Someone I never heard of before was nasty to Trump at the WHCD dinner.

The former is more important then the latter. Invasive species will do more harm to us than journalists.

Things seem to be going well between SoKo and Noko - so Trump must be falling into an intricate trap.

The migrant caravan is approaching the US, so it's a test between the evil Trump and the so-worthy illegal border-crossers.

And the Gazans did their, now usual, Friday assault on Israel, and suffered casualties. They were shot in the legs, and now face possible amputations.

Whole foods partnered with a restaurant chain named "Yellow Fever." How evil is that? Isn't that a disease? Well that ought to get us focused off the Arizona Romaine Lettuce e-coli thingy.

In other words there is nothing worth commenting on right now, even though I've done so.

I had absolutely sublime comments to add last night, but in the posting snafus, they all dissipated.

I hate to say it about the news we're exposed to everyday regarding our country, but this is more worthy of an explanation.

Good norning!

jim nj, Quite a variety of links there!

I read the one about the Yellow Fever Asian bowl restaurant within whole foods yesterday, and one of the most ridiculous things about the controversy is that it is a small chain which has been in business in other locations for about 4 years, and no one complained about it UNTIL they partnered with Whole Foods and their grievance mongering clientele.

Oh, and the owner is an ASIAN woman!! (I watched the video hooked to the story I read.)

MM,

A whole lot of nothing, signifying nothing, other than that the grievance people are working overtime.

The only really interesting things I linked to were the UK caterpillars and the Yellowstone Park eruptions.

When the first George Bush talked about a New World Order, I don't think he had invasive species in mind. Yet, like the "Zoo" TV series, we may not be the dominant species in the future.

And if the "Yellowstone" caldera were to erupt it would devastate the US. Similarly, other devastations, of any kind, could take out other countries. Asteroid, comet, volcano, earthquake, etc. Could instantly re-order global supremacy.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

True. The Yellowstone Caldera I have known about for many years, and it is something I choose to ignore because there is zero I can do to control it.

MM,

I don't worry too much about the Yellowstone caldera erupting either. Like you, there's nothing I can do about it.

It would devastate the US, probably most of the world if it did happen.

That type of thing can possibly happen anywhere.

The superpower contests could be decided by a random unknown event.

This article makes the point that Strzok and Page were aspiring technocrats who saw themselves as being the good guys because Trump threatened their perceived natural order of things.

In the comments, someone points out that Washington is full of these people, as was Germany in the 1930's. It's a mind set of bureaucrats.

And I just remembered that Deep Throat, who brought down Nixon by leaking and spinning to Woodward and Bernstein, was a disgruntled FBI guy.

Davod

Don Surber - They don't want credibility.

"...And he wrote, "No one is going to believe or trust us so long as we pretend like we’re not part of the credibility problem. Look in a mirror, people."

"Nice guy, but Adams is giving the benefit of the doubt to people who have no interest in credibility. In fact, they want the public to distrust the media because that helps a fascist state oppress the people.

Theodore Dalrymple explained this well.

"In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is...in some small way to become evil oneself. One's standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to," he wrote."

The Kennedy betrayal at the Bay of Pigs was worse than described.

How many people know that the Bay of Pigs was not the original landing site.

The original location for the landing was the city of Trinidad, which was in hilly/mountainous terrain, and close to a possible refuge and base of operations - the Escambray mountains.

Kennedy vetoed Trinidad and the Bay of Pigs was selected. A remote swampy area on the southern coast of Cuba, where a night landing might bring a force ashore against little resistance and help to hide any U.S. involvement. The Bay of Pigs was 80 miles away from the Escambray mountains.

I wonder how much more of the Kennedy Library information is not quite correct (Leaving out Trinidad option).

More information can be found at:

Site change called fatal to invasion, The Miami Herald, January 5, 1997.

"Landing at the Bay of Pigs could not possibly succeed and was going to end in disaster. That's the word I used." BAY OF PIGS PLANNER: Retired Col. Jack Hawkins. Invasion planning chief.
