I'll check it out, Catsmeat, thanks. He was a very prolific writer and all of it entertainingly readable.

Although I recommended "All We Need of Hell" to Porch, and that still stands as my entry point for Crews, "A Feast of Snakes" is an incredible work of fiction.

--Is there a JOMer who drank three Newport Creamery Awful Awfuls, and then drank the fourth free one at the same sitting? Whether a guy or gal, that's a better human than I am!--

The young granddaughter of a friend challenged me to keep eating burgers at a church picnic kind of thing early this year so I managed to polish off six. Not a big deal they were hardly sliders but neither were they double cheeseburgers with those huge sesame seed buns, so I boasted I'd knock off eight next time.

Couple months later "next time" rolls around and as I got in line, to my horror they had the freakin giant sesame seed buns this time!
I almost didn't even try before I started but her chubby little face spurred me on.
I made it without, yes, ralphing, but it was a close fought thing, believe me.
Since then she has christened me Mr Steel Stomach.

Btw I was just informed that my granddaughter supports Trump because her grandfather does, and that's the team she wants to be part of. I applauded her independent thinking in Crazyfornia.

the "I've been a republican for my entire life but i'm voting democrat this year because..." was a regular letter to the editor feature back when. not sure why they even bothered in massholeville but they did. now no one gets the paper so i guess they have to throw themselves in front of a camera. the fact that they look like an extra in Portlandia is just a bonus.

Trump has turned this Kavanaugh fiasco into a big positive for the GOP. If it is a choice between getting Kavanaugh confirmed or keeping the House and picking up seats in the Senate, Trump prefers the latter. He will use a Kavanugh rejection to motivate the base and many independents (based on the way the Dems acted during this whole process) to vote GOP.

No matter the outcome on Kavanaugh over the next two days, Trump will turn it into a positive.

descended from their captive "trophy" stock.

With 3 of 4 grandparents straight outa Scandahouvia, I was shocked to have 13 pct Irish diluting that mix. Finally realized that was an obvious consequence of those cruises south where Irish maidens were looking to par-tay. :)

Re Ralph and all the various ways to spell that name, my old maid aunties insisted we descended from Rolf the Gangar. Also spelled Hrolf or Hrolph. Gangar means walker, because he was so big he straddled those little Norsk ponies. Lastly, from watching the Vikings (should be no s) I learned that Rollo is the name used everywhere else for that character and there are statues of him all over Yurp.

Since I've sacrificed nothing, an accurate answer is probably "not yet". Truth be known, I'm glad my daughter encourages her to support whoever she thinks she wants to.

You're on a roll tonight, JMH

Stephanie, Nene, Not your Normal Grandma

Thanks y'all. Back from UGA the first thousand dollars poorer. They have no idea what it is, but the first thought is pancreatitis. We should 'maybe' know more tomorrow. Holy shit do they have a racquet going up there.

You can go to Emory and get human major dental work done almost pro bono if you don't mind the students working on you, but go to UGA for vet services ALSO DONE WITH STUDENTS, it is $800 minimum to walk in the door. The estimate is $2 - $3K.

Yes, this is a continuation of what she had going on in August. She gets better, then worse then better, but the cysts are a new wrinkle. Totally had our vet stumped.

I was listening to a guy who is an American Muay Thai coach. He used to do executive protection. He said most of the people who can afford it don't deserve it.

I have to say though, they don't let the $15 wage protesters behind the counter at McDonald's. They need to arrest some of these yahoos.

That video of Orrin Hatch is the bee's knees. What in the heck has happened with these guys? Graham, now Hatch? I don't think it's Trump in this case; he's been on the job for almost two years and they've ignored the winning tactics of playing offense and mocking the left. Until now.

Just starting catch-up and 400 comments behind, but can it really be true that this entire epic battle we've just been engaged in may collapse because of some Republican Senator having to attend his daughters wedding?

Specialty vet services are a major budget buster. A few years ago when we stayed with our younger daughter on Long Island, the grounds were a tick haven and Maggie picked up something because she was totally listless after we got home. It was so bad she almost collapsed in the back yard. We took her to our regular vet and she said it was out of her area of expertise and referred us to the emergency clinic. I knew it would cost out the wazz but our dogs are family. They gave her an antibiotic that brought her back but not 100%; more like 85-90. They sent her blood sample to iNCeST, the tick borne disease experts of the country. They couldn't ID what she had but I guarantee it was brutal.

I forget exactly how much it was but it was four figures and not just barely.

Surely Senator Daines can commandeer a lear jet to get him to the church on time AND cast a vote that will affect our country for generations to come.

He is catching "heck" on twitter from veterans who are listing the "important life events" they missed in service to our country!

Headline in the local Anchorage paper: Murkowski remains uncertain as Flake and Collins signal satisfaction with FBI report on Kavanaugh

Murkoswki told reporters that she did not yet know whether the FBI had been thorough enough in its investigation or spoken to enough witnesses. Asked whether she felt she had been given enough time to consider her decision before voting this weekend, Murkowski added: “I certainly hope so, yes.”

mockmook

They can postpone the vote if necessary, right?

I don't think this (the wedding) is a problem

Good. I don't think I could look myself in the mirror knowing that a wedding I was involved in overrode the importance of a vote of such potential consequence for this Republic. I just don't get it.

Pinandpuller

Amy Schumer has time to protest, shoot movies and steal jokes. How does she do it?

derwill

There’s a minimum numbers of hours after cloture before they can vote, but is there a maximum? Just hold the vote after the wedding. Trump can send his big jet.

JimNorCal

Senator Daines should find a "no" vote and make a deal to vote "present" to offbalance his vote. I mean, these guys are colleagues, valuing comity and bipartisanship.
In honor of McCain, don'tcha know?
Plus, surely they are sympathetic to a fellow parent who wants to attend a daughter's wedding?

narciso

Remember when they crafted an Obama care repeal bill just to her objection, and some how they found a,way to torpedo it.

So Kennedy protege and Korean framework drafter Soderbergh is,bombarding this area with the whole pre existing condition jag, there doesn't seem to be any response from our ostrich like challenger, on the general issue of the burden of Obama care and how it vaporized a whole slew of policies or the pec

The Left's lack of restraint is rooted in its very strength. It attracts true believers, absolutists. It is a religion made even more un-self aware by the conviction that it is above all religious cant.

JM Hanes

Well, I sure hope whoever would be pairing up with Daines doesn't tell any other Democrats till he/she votes present on the floor. I know I wouldn't want to be in that guy's shoes, but I also wouldn't trust a single damn Dem to keep his part of the bargain, in the first place. If I were faced with making the deal, I'd want to be sure the other guy was out of town too.

People are wondering if Chinese computer chips are involved with the recent spate of US Navy crashes. Sounds ... unlikely but what do I know.

More than just Navy Stupid may have been involved in the USN mishaps….

“Multiple people familiar with the matter say investigators found that the chips had been inserted at factories run by manufacturing subcontractors in China.”

Chuck Schumer Today: Senate Minority Leader Schumer said he disagreed with Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, who said that there was "no hint of misconduct" in the report.

Chuck Schumer in 2011: Sen. Chuck Schumer said he doesn’t think his fellow New York Democrat Rep. Anthony Weiner had anything to do with the picture of a man’s erect penis underneath gray boxer-briefs sent from Weiner’s official Twitter account Friday night.

“I don’t know the details, but I know him to be a person of integrity and I am virtually certain he had nothing to do with this.”

Just got a call from UGA. She definitely has an inflammation of some sort. Bloodwork is back and WBC are at 19K which is better than the 30K in August, but still elevated. Temp still in the 102-103 range (normal is 99 for a dog). Giving her fluids. Couldn't check her urine as she is still dehydrated. Internal Med Spec to call in the morning with next step. They aren't putting her on antibiotics til they figure out what is causing the inflammation.

BTW do you realize how hard it is for me to even type UGA? ;) What's the Good Word?

Do The Notorious RBG, Wide Latina and Kagan organize some inside-the-court difficulties for Kav? Nah. Recall that Kagan hired hm at Harvard.
