clarice,

When I was a kid I used to read Ann Landers' column every day in our paper. (She was Dear Abby's sister, for those who don't know.)

One day she printed an anti-Semitic letter she had received, and wrote a beautiful defense of Jews and Israel, highlighting their accomplishments and contributions to the world. As you can see, I still remember it.

That Edinburgh letter reminded me of that. I appreciate you posting it.

So fascinating that the day after the Democrats committed to max funding the military for the next two years, SCOTUS authorizes Trump to use Defense funds to build the wall.

It’s over folks.

Trump will build the wall.

The anti-semitism that is now rearing its ugly head again is the same anti-semitism of the Marxist Left of 50 years ago. Remember the closeted PLO supporters in Europe? And a lot of un-closeted as well. A good friend, now gone, was in the next room when they kidnapped the Israeli athletes in 1972 in Munich.

They were blowing up airliners. Pan-Arabism masked the Marxist authoritarian influence of Nasser and Assad and the Libyan Colonels.Now we find that Ilham Omar's uncle or father was head of the Somali Marxist faction and that she sat at his feet absorbing I=his rabid hatred of Israel and America. To the marxist it was all the same. Israel is still the Little Satan and we are the Great Satan.

While the Germans and Austrians go into hysterics over anti immigrant Neo nazis the germans have let their Islamist residents in some cases get away with murder. Even while ISIS sympathizers go on knife rampages or plow semi-trucks into innocent crowds the real enemy is still allowed to fester like an untreated open sore.

Socialism is built on an edifice of lies. From each according to his abilities really means coerced labor. To each according to their needs puts the apparatchiks at the front of the line whether it is the political class or their cronies. Why do you think metro DC is now one of the largest concentrations of corporate headquarters?

It is about hatred of the West and its institutions and of the Judeo-Christian ethic. The dots are easily connected. Same as it ever was. Same as it ever was.

The glory of Trump is the exposure of how absolutely corrupt they are. They use the language and cloak of reasonableness but pervert the language.

To paraphrase Gertrude Stein, a spade is spade. Not a trans non binary questioning shovel.

I have a book I bought a long time ago called Caste and Ecology in the Social Insects. I bought it because I'd seen it in a library and it was the first book I'd seen from a non-hard science that did real scientific analysis. In this case, regarding insects like bees and ants.

Spock would definitely call it fascinating.

If you check out the "Look inside..." link, compare that with the usual argumentation about climate, for example.

I'm not saying that I was used to using Balmer, city of my birth, as a touchstone of urban life, but my first comment on seeing Cleveland was "where are the row houses?" In truth there are some in this tiny block just east of E. 55 street where a bunch of stone artisans used to live.

A different era, there was one visionary mayor who became governor william Donald Schaeffer, but that's like 1,000 years ago. I chalk part of this to this systemic outsourcing that has plagued many urban cities along with welfare and excessive union contracts

2. The Dems are unable to recover from their collusion delusion
3. Pelosi only likes court decisions that go her way
4. Dems don't think child murderers should be executed
5. Trump's Twitter is awesome

I got my husband an extra role (ended up on the cutting room floor) in a Barry Levinson film..He loved Homicide and I read they were looking for extras. I wrote and said his 60th birthday was coming up and nothing would make him happier than to be an extra in the series. They couldn't use him there but had him in the film. He had some hilarious talks with regular extras who told him which dead bodies they had played in previous episodes.

The Charm City moniker was surely tied into waitresses calling you "hon". It was honestly a pleasant place to be as long as you were aware that things could go sideways quickly. Village Idiot's Apprentice at AoS still lives there; we've had many reminiscences.

Our French foreign exchange student, Emilie, who plans to visit us next summer in Santa Cruz to celebrate her 40th birthday, came back one summer when she was 18 and we took her to Ocean City. I told her that she was going to the only area of the country where the King's English was properly spoken as part of her further education.

When I traveled to Russia I always carried oil of cloves in case someone in the group had a toothache. The medical care was so awful, if any of us became seriously ill or needed emergency dental treatment we were to fly to Finland .I also had to pack normal first aid type things like aspirin and bandages as they had none there for sale.

I'll have to find Liberty Heights; thanks for the heads up.

Given the enthusiastic recommendations here, I picked up a copy of "Stoner" at the local Barnes & Noble, no problem. When I will get around to actually reading it could be a problem. Still wading through Chernow's "Grant." It's good but long. Very long.

Speaking of s***holes, I'm off to Detroit tomorrow morning to visit the parents. It's actually having a bit of a revival, so they say, so I'm hoping to drive around and see for myself.

I was at a conference at the Hilton on the Inner harbor a number of years ago. A friend of mine showed up the next morning for our meetings and was terribly bruised. I asked him what happened and he said that he was in the mall across the street from the hotel and some kids were beating another kid. He yelled at them to stop and he was then beaten up. There was a Baltimore cop standing 20' away. It used to be really something, but now it's a shithole.I have family on the Eastern Shore but would never go into the city again.

Homicide:Life on the Streets was one of my favorite programs ever.

I always stayed on the Kowloon side with a view of the island. Some of the best hotels in the world. Tsim She Tsui was my station.

Don't remember where Yuen Long is. Tsim She Tsui was my usual stop. There was a hole in the wall DVD/CD store where I used to stock up on chop sockey movies and bootleg CD's . There were some absolutely amazing compilations people made up; no royalties, I think. Just barely legal.But getting the 100 top Billboard songs for the 60's or whatever decent quality was pretty cool.

I like the way the Hong Konger's are engaging the mainlanders. Travel to Hong Kong has been normalized, unlike when I was there regularly. So many of the people who visit are not as bad as the mobs who used to descend. It is still incredibly crowded, though.

There is a small trickle of democracy getting through to the mainland. A recession or some form of overt government oppression may light the fuse. I have seen the paramilitaries practicing riot control, but at some point some young kid is going to recoil in horror and then the new revolution will begin ( I hope).

Pissing off the Muslims and Christians probably is not a good idea, especially when the state is seen as corrupt and sclerotic. Macau is quite different. It was never as freewheeling as Hong Kong. It makes its money on the casinos. So I don't see anything arising there. But pissed off, well educated Hong Kongers are a different thing altogether.

The Chinese supposedly invented gunpowder.
Guess what kind of keg Xi is sitting on. It ain't beer.
More and more he reminds me of Gorbachev; the uncharacteristically flashy and energetic commie, as opposed to the ambulatory corpses and doddering fossils he replaced, impressing the gullible western media with his tailored suits and astounding ability to actually crack a smile at times, reinvigorating a slightly cumbersome ship of state. A man we can do business with.
When in fact he is the last or close to the last gasp of just another dying variant on totalitarianism that is approaching its own implosion from the same stresses that always doom totalitarians.
And like knucklehead Reagan before him simpleton Trump is seemingly the only guy in town who realizes what a house of cards our chief enemy is and the only one with a desire and the guts to play 52 card pick up.
He may not go as far as he should but he's already gone a lot farther than the ChiComs ever thought we would.

As loathsome as David French can be, he had a very good piece in today's WSJ on one side of a debate with some idiot Marci Hamilton on religious freedom.

The Constitution (including the Bill of Rights and the amendments passed in the wake of the Civil War) renders operational and enforceable the founding declaration that Americans “are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights,” which include “life, liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.” These core American liberties include rights to due process, free speech, assembly and the free exercise of religion. Every other American law—whether a federal statute, state constitutional provision, state law or university regulation—is subordinate to and subject to review under this Bill of Rights.

He argues that the burden of proof has to be on the government to override the presumption of religious freedom, a point that even Scalia got wrong.

Probably behind the paywall.

https://www.wsj.com/articles/yes-american-religious-liberty-is-in-peril-11564152873

Hamilton in her piece resorts to arguments like (paraphrasing) "This would mean we couldn't prosecute pedophile priests!"
