And the agent carter series.

Wasn't John Glenn kind of a hell raiser in the day?

I read "Space" and "The Right Stuff" at the same time so get things a little mixed up :-)

buccaneer morgan

That might have been shepherd or carpenter.

boatbuilder

Glenn was the boy scout in The Right Stuff. The rest were hell raisers and resented him for it.

Just messin' with you, PD -- but I do like those ads.

Ot, Michael chabon's latest, is a blend of Walter mittyesque whimsy like cosataguana, mixed with some elements from gravity's rainbow

That's a positive review, right? Mrs H is reading it now. I saw him speak once and found him extremely irritating to listen to. That doesn't mean he isn't a good writer.

If the Klingsor question was to me, I finished it a couple weeks ago and thoroughly enjoyed the reread as did the group.

buccaneer morgan

Well its less ponderous then pynchon, it purports to be the author's grandfathers memoir, who served in the oss handled the paperclip crew, and then life got complicated.

Captain Hate

I absolutely hated Gravity's Rainbow after looking forward to reading it. It had a seventies triteness to it that I couldn't get past.

True I was impressed by a turow description of one of his novels and was subsequently underwhelmed.

These ass-wipe libtards are bitching about the BOOGIE MEN RUSSIANS.

Listen mother fuckers, you've had 8 years. 8 years you cowered and licked the Russians asses dry. You hid behind "HISTORY WILL SAY....BLAH BLAH BLAH....
Your teeny tiny balls were like SHRINKY DINKS when Russia invaded other countries and blew a passenger jet out of the sky.
You stood by like half wit lipless Obama and did NOTHING when Snowden went to the KREMLIN. You handed out MIS-SPELLED RESET buttons to the COMMUNISTS.
You were in charge. If Rodham, Elections or anyone else in the U.S. was hacked, it happened on your FUCKING WATCH.

STFU libtards, you're riding in back now.

"Detroit instantly got a superb left side of the infield for a decade and DC got lots of souvenirs from the cannon shots off McClain."

Don't forget Joe Coleman who also went to Detroit in that deal, and immediately had a succession of 20-win seasons. Not to rub it in or anything.

GUS

On a lighter note.
My first major league game...Ted Williams was WASHINGTON'S Manager.
Denny McLain pitched for DETROIT.

Jimmy, it is UNPOSSIBLE that we both mentioned MCLain at the very same minute.

What the fuck ever happened to critical thinking skills.
China flies SOOOOOPER DOOOOOPER OKIE DOKE AEROPLANE after TRUMP EATS OMELET and MUFFIN. Obviously CHINA was not going to fly this SOOOOPER DOOOOOPER YANKEE KILLER had not TRUMP eaten said omelet.
Obama did not eat an omelet, so he is not responsible for CHINA DEVELOPING the BOMBER.

Actually the news last week was they flew before the call. This is a history rewrite. US officials say... pfft.

Stephanie. They have the JET. When they "flew it" is as relevant as the color of my Grannies bloomers. This is how retarded the left is.
So Trump takes a phone call from the Lady Prez of Taiwan. LIBS PISS THEIR PANTALONES.

COWARDICE and WEAKNESS are recognized by PREDATORS. Obama gives PREDATORS his lunch money. Only Obama's lunch money equals America's weakness, and Obama NEVER spends HIS MONEY. It's OUR money.

Wow. What an incredible coincidence. Hamrod was right about the Russians hacking the election and hurting her campaign. (sarc off)

"It is the assessment of the intelligence community that Russia’s goal here was to favor one candidate over the other, to help Trump get elected,” said a senior U.S. official briefed on an intelligence presentation made to U.S. senators. “That’s the consensus view."

Consensus. There's that word again. Local news says that the "russians" who leaked the docs to wikileaks are not "employees of Russia" (no, really...exact quote).

This is such crap.

Hey!!! Kevlar, good to see you. I was howling to nobody, until you showed up.
Just yesterday Barry Von POCK-EE-STAHN, told us that his "Intelligence apparatus", did not give him the REAL POOOOOOP on ICE-ILL.
He says ISIL, rather than ISIS because he and Johhnny Catsup ARE SO SMART!!!!
Now his "OFFICIALS" have found RUSSIA HACKING and CONSPIRING for TRUMP.
If so....Kev....then OBAMA and his "OFFICIALS" are total FUCK-UPS.
If RUSSIA, with SNOWDEN, CRIMEA, UKRAINE, PASSENGER JET shot down, RESET BUTTON GROOVY teevee gig, and now HACKING FOR TRUMP..... is REAL.
Then OBAMA is RESPONSIBLE and is a FUKWAD.

Daddy and Tom. Ted Williams was GREAT. By any normal red blooded American normal standard, Ted Williams was a GREAT MAN.
Our LOVE of CELEB or our former love for AMERICAN ATHLETIC wonder, sets TEDDY "ballgame" as an ICON of SPORT/CELEB.

TED WILLIAMS. JOHN GLENN, and men such as WARREN SPAHN...... are sometimes evaluated based upon how much MOAR!!! they could have achieved, had NOT they been in the MILITARY.

I feel you on this hacking thing. My own theory is its Mossad. But whodunnit is beside the point.

Bottom line: The Bath House Rat done got his tutu ripped off in broad daylight for all the world to see....

All of the BHR's pathetic posturing about "investigating" the hacking of US elections, his absurd appointments, issuing the medals to people who "made him who he is" (a lying, turd burping, moron?), regulation blizzarding and all the rest of it is made to look even more ridiculous in the revelations that came out during the last month of the election pig pile.

We haven't forgotten all of that yet he behaves as if we could.

Our local newscasters report this bullshitake about Russian hackers with such smug mugs. It's amazing they can do it with a straight face. "See? He didn't really win. Cuz you know, Hillary Clinton won the popular vote."

It's disgusting.

When Trump won the election I kept watching the final fight scene in "Gladiator" when Maximus knocks the crap out of Commodus before using his own knife against him to end his miserable life.

To me it symbolized a wounded America ending the "political" life of an impudent, neurotic sociopath with narcissistic personality disorder.

It applies on a number of levels: a) the Bath House Rat; b) Hamrod the Clinton; c) Podinki; d) The DNC; e) the American "News" Media; ....and on and on.

Russia just won the cold war."

To argue with a sot like DubiousDave is like arguing with a budding 14 year old atheist who asks: "So, do you think God can make a rock that He cannot pick up?"

In my classrooms and lecture halls when an unstable primate like the Dubious One puked all over the discussion with (usually a he) his phony declarations to support a worldview fogged by alcohol abuse, I'd call the young wastrel to the front.

Then, I'd offer a choice. A) ball gag; or B) a racoon's tail. "What?!?!!? You can't do that."

"Ahhhhh. But I can. And I will if you decide you want to stay and find out just how I manage to get it done.

"Now get back to your seat and defend the position you just struck in this discussion; or, you will be either gagged or humiliated whichever the class decides suits best the quality of your argument."

Two things always happened next:

1) the student packed up their trash and left, dropping the class that day; and,

2) I'd have a voice mail from the Dean's office waiting for me after class with a howling executive assistant asking if I carried the ball gag with into every class (cheeky monkey that she was).

It would happen at least once per semester per class.

What are "potential hackers?" And, how did hackers "meddle" in the election as you see it?

Is meddling of the variety alleged by the sourceless, nameless, and faceless CIA messengers who met with nameless, faceless "Senate leaders" about Wikileaks?

Or is the kind of meddling done by "potential hackers" of the variety alleged by the Steinbots re voting machines in the "Blue Wall" states where votes got recounted?

Baseball...

I grew up watching Captain Willie Mays and the Giants exclusively until the Kansas City Athletics moved to Oakland in the mid-60s after the Oakland Coliseum complex came on line (price tag then: $26 million for an arena and a stadium).

Dad and I would go to Candlestick Park for day games (had more of em than night games back then) because night was too damned cold at the 'stick. Anyways we'd go three hours early for batting practice. After batting practice the Giants would have outfield warm-ups and we could watch the Captain and the others do unbelieveable stuff with their gloves.

My favorite guy to watch in warm-ups though was Ollie Brown. We lost him in the expansion draft to the disgusting Sandy Eggo Padres. He had the strongest arm I've ever seen in major league baseball. A former minor league pitcher he came up from the Fresno Giants as an outfielder and he held down right field for about 3 seasons.

We'd sit up against the roof of the 1st base side dugout while Ollie would catch his share of fungoes. He'd be back in the right field corner shaggin' fly balls. From the corner he could throw the ball to the catcher in his crouch behind home plate. The ball as it whirred past our dugout perch was six feet off the ground. And it was a perfect strike to home.

We'd watch him make the catch. Then he'd motion for the catcher to get down into his crouch. He'd let that ball fly and whoomo! The catcher would almost get knocked backwards. Ollie did that about 15 times in a row. Same spot. Same motion. Same height. Same sound. Then it was time for infield practice and my first hot dog of the day.

That shit was real.

I wonder why the repetitive blaming of Russian government hackers? I mean, it's not impossible that Russians were busily stirring the pot. But isn't it likely that another source was responsible for larger and more important leaks? I name US national security figures. Why stand by and allow the traitorous Clinton cabal seize power?

"I name US national security figures."

There was a stirring video released by a NATSEC legend about the Clinton cabal's attempted coup d'etat and how it was being derailed by patriotic NATSEC and law enforcement PATRIOTS.

1. The irony is rich when the guy who enabled foreign donors to illegally contribute to his campaign and a woman who receives cash in wheelbarrows from the communist Chinese raise this claim.
2. The irony is richer in that both Barry and Clinton have tried to influence elections not of our enemies but our allies like the UK and Israel and Honduras.
3. The irony is even richier that Trump is simultaneously liable to start a nuclear war with the Russians and entirely far too chummy with the Russians.
4. The irony is richest that for Dems, depending on the circumstances, our intelligence agencies are clairvoyant, unreliable, vital to our survival or death to our survival.

You can see the little wheels turning in the minds of the Trumpsters as they're beginning to realize that they can love their country or they can love Trump.... but they can't do both.


Just reading through the litany of false equivalencies and logical fallacies that folks have to twist themselves up in just to prove that Donald Trump is not a witless puppet for the Kremlin......is kind of sad.

Especially in light of the death of a great American hero, John Glenn. I just hope Mr. Glenn was not aware of the American Republican party selling out his country to the Kremlin before he died.

Speaking of which, will the Kremlin award Mitch McConnel the 'Goldstar medal' for his service to the Russian state? American intelligence services told McConnel that the Ruskies had hacked the American elections and McConnel gave the Russians political cover by undermining (read: wapo article) the credibility of the U.S intel services.


Sheesh,no wonder Trump doesn't take American intel briefings....too busy taking kremlin intel briefings.

Nostrovia, people of JOM, baw compliance and help to da Russian people will be well rewarded.

Thanks to Janet for linking Tucker's takedown of bag lady Rubin. She was at a distinct disadvantage because she didn't have her huge stack of papers to shuffle through like an insane person as she did on BOR; I assume somebody at the Bezos Daily Worker advised her to leave them home amidst the dust bunnies and a nearly infinite number of cats. Carlson, who I usually like, was somewhat annoying by frequently interrupting her rather than let her natter away into self destruction. I realize television has time constraints but brevity isn't Jen's forte as anybody reading her column can surmise.

Wasn't it just over four years ago that R$ was ridiculed by the MFM for mentioning the Rooskies?

boatbuilder

It is certainly possible that the Russians sought to influence the US election by hacking the DNC and revealing to the American public what our complicit press wouldn't--that the Democratic nominee and the party itself were and are corrupt, self-dealing power-mad criminals, who acted in collusion with their lackeys in the supposedly neutral MSM to try to steal the election, silence the opposition and cheat in debates, and that the nominee was running an international pay-to-play scam from the office of Secretary of State.

I say let's keep investigating this--what did the Russians find and why did it have so much influence on the public?

dublindave

"All I can say is if Vlad helped keep that sociopath out of office, I'd sure like to buy him a beer"

And that's why the Kremlin put all their chips on the GOP.

The Week in Pictures; Man of the Year Edition.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

KK,

Thanks for that link to The People's Cube.

Here's a little illustration of what's happening in children's books, and one that still enrages me.

When my son (now 48) was 3-5 years old, I bought him several picture books by the late Richard Scarry. Titles were "Best Word Book Ever," "What Do People Do all Day?" "Best Storybook Ever" etc.

Many of you would recognize these illustrations, because the books were quite prevalent in children's departments in the early 70's. There was later a cartoon series on TV for a season or so.

The books were filled with illustrations of animals who were dressed in clothing and had adventures or showed how things worked (mining, paper mills, bakeries, farms, etc.)

Anyway, our books got very worn. A few years after my grandson was born, I went and bought new editions to read with him.

SHOCK! The segment on mining had been removed! The policeman bear had been turned into a policewoman! The little mice dressed as Indians had been transformed into little cowboy desperadoes and the storyline changed to PC. The dingo dog who ran wild in his car had been disappeared!

All of the books had been "cleaned up" so as not to offend any minority group and to give equal billing to females.

I was dumbfounded, and to this day own a small collection of the old editions which I searched for on eBay so as to have the complete older set.

Anyway, the Peoples Cube story somehow made me remember this and it is sort of the same thing. The author okayed the changes, but I imagine it was at the insistence of American publishers for our market, and I bring this up to remind people that nothing is too small for the PS people to sink their teeth into.

Did KK pull an all-nighter ???

Teddy Ballgame was a truly great and fascinating American and arguably the greatest hitter who ever lived. But he also had a volcanic temper and seemed to care not a whit for the success or failure of his team, and little things like playing solid defense or hanging around at the park until the game was over were unimportant to him. His family life was a disaster. His public temper tantrums and private behavior would have had him run out of the game in Today's world. His relationship with the Boston press was adversarial to say the least. At the same time he quietly visited and supported sick kids in hospitals and took care of the "little people" in his life. He didn't volunteer to go into the service and initially resisted, but obviously acquitted himself heroically once he was in. And the guy could talk, and talk, and talk, and generally said loudly, and profanely, exactly how he felt about things.

Dear Dems and echoing MSM: What would Russians gain by hacking Trump into office?

Reports by @CNN that I will be working on The Apprentice during my Presidency, even part time, are rediculous & untrue - FAKE NEWS!

I LOVE that he used "FAKE NEWS."

His name will continure to appear on the credits as "executive producer." That's it.

Very often this title will appear on credits for a person who originally worked with a show, even after the person has left. This was just another thing to get people like Michael Moore and Jen Rubin all verklempt.

Good morning, all.

We'd watch him make the catch. Then he'd motion for the catcher to get down into his crouch. He'd let that ball fly and whoomo! The catcher would almost get knocked backwards. Ollie did that about 15 times in a row. Same spot. Same motion. Same height. Same sound. Then it was time for infield practice and my first hot dog of the day.

That shit was real.

What a beautiful memory, KK. It is truly hard for kids these days (and I'm not criticizing them, I think it's genuinely hard) to clear their minds and enjoy the glory of something like that, KK. You had the luxury (I suspect) of it being something to look forward to, and it enriches your life today. They have to make a conscious decision, it seems to me, to clear their somewhat ADHD minds and *try* to enjoy something like that while completely oblivious to how much enjoyment it will bring in later life. That (enjoying something in your youth that will bring much enjoyment in older age) in and of itself surely isn't something new . . . but the difficulty of experiencing it, whether through serendipity or otherwise, seems to have taken an exponential leap.

This seems to be something of a sad fact in our new technological age, and we don't quite yet know how to come to terms with it or mitigate it.

From KK' People's Cube link:

I hate politics as much as a soldier hates the war but continues to fight because it's the only way to victory. I'd rather live my life enjoying beautiful things without any politics attached, but today that seems like an impossible dream. The alternative to fighting is a surrender to the stifling totalitarianism and censorship, which will be a lot worse than going back to the Soviet days. The West's surrender to the leftist agenda means that there will be no other parts of the world left to give us the hope of freedom. Nowhere to smuggle uncensored books, tapes, or cartoons from. Nowhere to run to.

Just thought that was worth highlighting. Amen.

Though iggy's 8:53 makes it hard to hate politics entirely.

As far as Russians hacking the election:

1. Hillary's unsecured private server (literally) was hacked by the entire planet. The less skilled may have left traces behind.

2. Known Russian hacks of US systems released via wikileaks were inside jobs: Manning, Snowden, ? (DNC).

3. To the extent we know, Chinese hacks of USG systems were inside jobs: a CMS subcontractor, a Chinese national at FBI, etc.

4. Commercial hacks blamed on China or Russia turned out to be inside jobs: Sony etc.

So this crap about Russia is purely made up. It was an insider or someone inside fell for a phishing email (::cough:: John Podesta ::cough::) that left a fake IP trail to Russia.
