it wouldn't have been any reconciliation. it would have laid out their treason and provided punishment.

We've had some fun weather recently yielding wonderful eye candy.

First, a little premonition. A very brief shower right at sundown.

Next a study in sun arrival as it accelertes its swing south. We are going to lose about a 1/2 hr per week for the next several weeks, so I'm catching its peekaboo spot on the horizon whenever I can catch it.

This is from the 17th and it is just skimming up behind the north side of Mt Baker.

The next morning it has moved about a diameter south and is just peeking out in the notch south of the main peak.

Now, we jump ahead to the 25th.

Last, but not least, I ended up in a bit of a contest with my LAPD bud on the end of our marina, who is paying for about the best view on the island. The night before these next two shots we were talking about watching the sunrises here, so he sent me his premo shot from his boat. We both laughed, because it looks like a shot in the South Pacific with an erupting volcano. (Well, it is a volcano, just not blowing its top right now.)

And by comparison, my shot at the same moment and closer to the mountain, was a poor second for the fake catastrophe.

rich, don't interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake.

The violence and riots are turing the tide. We do not need any "muh both sides do it" counter narratives to screw that up. It's literally exactly what they want. To the point that there will probably be false flag operations at some point. But there's nothing we can do about that except be vigilant for it.

.@tedwheeler Portland is your responsibility, not President @realDonaldTrump’s! You have allowed #BLM and #Antifa militants to control your city for more than 100 days! You’ve done nothing about it! You’ve refused help from the federal government! That killing is your fault! https://t.co/ddYLNcwdbb

I had forgotten that the guy who played Grady on Sanford and Son was named Whitman Mayo, but that has to be a stage name based on the stereotype of the “White man” liking Mayonnaise.

rich

we are already getting 'muh both sides' (but not really since the left doesn't recognize the violence as violence) and are already being slurred as racists and vigilantes.

our continued silence is their victory.

I wanted to thank all of those who kept my family in their prayers as we dropped off our younger kid at Boston College. He's a fountain of negativity and really wore out my wife emotionally. He's going to just have to deal with his situation, which is that going to college these days of forced remote learning and Karenism to the nth degree sucks. He's a transfer, and is upset that his opportunities to make new friends will be few and far between. One friend he did know from HS was sent home, not because she tested positive, but because she was "exposed" to someone who tested positive.
Today we went to Wegman's supermarket. I would say that this portion of Massachusetts (I think it was in Newton) has damn near 100% mask compliance. Some woman yelled at me because I wore mine below my nose. I looked through her like a white person staring at Michelle Obama and continued shopping. And everywhere the virtue signalling lawn signs in Newton and West Newton.
The students around the BC campus also looked to be 100% compliant but no one on campus objected to my alternately walking around with no mask, or with it below my nose.

peter, my daughter is going through the same thing. We're moving her into an apartment this week, and she'll be doing Zoom U. It's better than on campus, since campuses are being run like prisons. But for better or worse she's instinctively compliant, and as a result will probably have a tough time socially, since it will be hard to socialize unless you flout the Karens and do whatever it takes to meet people and have fun.

A Bob, haven’t heard boo from LaCrosse. I know people there, and they haven’t said anything. Pick a UW campus, and you have idiots. Even Parkside (Racine / Kenosha UW) has idiots “kidnapped” by Feds in”unmarked” vehicles.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

--but his failure to call on his supporters to stop seeking conflict shows just how weak he is--

Those are the kind of words that people tack up on their wall to keep motivated when the shooting really starts.
The Marxists are creating a sea of ideas and immoral absolutes that their Dem enablers are defending and supporting in a way that will be very hard to back out of. They have to back out of it because it will hurt them politically, perhaps profoundly, but if they try the coddled Marxists will howl and hurt them any way they can as well.
We've got a little over two months to the election and at the rate our TWANLOC neighbors are losing their shit I hope we make it to November.

President-Elect Jim,SunnyvaleCA

TM: "One man, a right-wing Trump supporter, fatally shot in Portland."

Already noted by others earlier, but an unfortunate choice of adjectives. Makes it sound "ONLY one guy" and makes it sound like "oh well, he was looking for trouble" or "if you choose sides you might get hurt".

It should be: anyone peacefully walking down the street, even if they disagree with you, should be safe from violence.
Was this guy blocking traffic? Was he screaming at diners in a restaurant?

This is sad. TM should see ... and feel ... its historical significance. This goes WAY beyond Kyle's shooting in Kenosha (see the post at New Neo for more background of how innocent this kid was: https://www.thenewneo.com/2020/08/29/the-changing-kyle-rittenhouse-story/)

President-Elect Jim,SunnyvaleCA

DrJ: "I'd suggest that we remain guests of Mr. Maguire as long as he wants to have us and continues to run the site. No one says you have to agree with his views, or even read them."

This is sensible, of course.
And I think that we should plan to stay through the election.
But instead of just thinking of ourselves, perhaps we should consider TM. He might enjoy the site more if there was a different set of commenters. He has been a genteel and perfect host, not the slightest hint of disapproval. Certainly no threats or angry words.

But every time he dips into the comments he sees major WrongThink from hardcore Deplorables.
The blog might be more fun for him if he could re-populate with people more to his way of thinking? He could enjoy and interact in the comments more. He could look forward to MeetUps.

We should stay through the election.
Then we should consider what's best for TM.
Anyway, that's my take.

DrJ

On a different note, our grapes measured really well this year. They are the best we have ever had, and show a very, very slight over-ripeness that is not worth correcting.

It sure help a lot to have a complete chemistry lab (as much as one every can have) to do the testing. Having within reach reference solutions, modern digital pipettes, stir plates, pH meters (including an automatic titrator!), stir bars, beakers and all the rest sure makes it a lot easier.
