God bless DrJ and his family.

Thank you for this post, TM.

Jack is Back (Again)!

What was DrJ’s PHd in if anyone knows?

sbwaters

Here! Here! to DrJ. and for TM’s recollection.

matt - deplore me if you must

I believe it was biochemistry, sbw. He was working on some very interesting stuff related to analyzing complex proteins in the body. It in a research niche from what I gathered.

Rocco

What a beautiful tribute, thanks TM!

So,, TM is reading the comments? or at least skimming them.

Thank you, TM.

DrJ's Linked In page indicates that he has a BSE in Chemical Engineering from University of Michigan (1979), and a PhD in Chemical Engineering from University of California Berkeley (1986).

Dr J--a scholar and a gentlemen, without a doubt.

We had lovely phone visit a year or so ago. We shared our Michigan experiences, and he had an idea for a clinical application of an area he was researching that he wanted my input on.

I loved how much he loved his Mrs.(only recently!) J and the riches she added to his life. I am so happy she agreed to tie the knot, after all these years. He clearly was delighted to be officially married to his Mrs. J.

May he rest in eternal peace.

Narciso

Indeed anonamon.

    Chris Wallace: “I thought it was a great speech. The best inaugural address I’ve ever heard. It was a call to our better angels.”

Christ. How long is Fox News gonna shove this insufferable stooge down our throats?

This has to be one of the most lackluster speeches ever given at an inauguration.

A boring clown show.

Very sad news. RIP, DrJ.

Chris Wallace just proved beyond doubt that he has no analytic skills if he thinks Joe Biden is anything but a great exaggerator and copy cat par excellent.

I have read some RIDICULOUS posts by Ann Althouse, but I think this one wins. If I'd ever had any indication she has an iota of humor, I'd suggest she was kidding here:

DrJ spent some time at AZ State. I forgot what he was doing there. Maybe teaching? I only recalled at that time tuition was $4K instead of $112 when I started. Don’t think the quality could have improved much given the high quality nearly 60 yrs ago.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Thank you for the tribute to DrJ, TM.

jimmyk, I have never seen her commenters kick her like they are. All the way to Infinity and beyond.

Truly epic.

--Don't compare human beings to animals. Don't say "pride land was overrun with the hyenas"! Your father was called a racist for his statements and policies on immigration, and "pride" resonates with white pride and Proud Boys. Why would you do that? Sheer stupidity?--

I love it when a person's idiotic, asinine sensibilities are offended by someone who doesn't share those idiotic, asinine sensibilities saying something that has nothing to do with what she's in high dudgeon about.
Sheer stupidity is in full flower, but not the way she thinks.
The commenters are revolting.

Captain Hate

I agree with Iggy. Very nicely done, TM.

Robin, eff 'em all

Oh my, those comments at the Althouse link are lol funny. How much I love people that can make me laugh on a dark day.

I think TM proved that he is indeed a gracious host with this post.

Jack is Back (Again)!

She is more tedious than usual especially quoting The Independent which is more left-wing than Pravda but with a more select readership. Same color of politics, though.

Robin, eff 'em all

To save you time:

Althouse:

Wince said...
"Some articles pointed out how the clever, cunning Scar... subjugates the destitute hyenas as his servants."

Well, you have to admit that is the Democrat playbook.

"Pride" is the word for a family of lions.

Dave (in MA)

Apparently "pride" is right from the cartoon, which I've never seen, but it's not hard to figure out.

Captain Hate

Outhouse apparently is unaware that the Proud Boys leader is a POC. Maybe it would be shorter to list the things she understands.

You would think she woule have a clue but you'd be wrong

Trump travel bans racist, Biden travel bans good:

    Jen Psaki@jrpsaki·

    With the pandemic worsening, and more contagious variants emerging around the world, this is not the time to be lifting restrictions on international travel.

Jane

Tm,

Thanks for the tribute to Dr.J. He’s already missed.

Haven’t had a TV all day. I usually have a least 3. I’m absolutely positive I haven’t missed a thing.

MissMarple2

Trump must have inleashed the stupid ray on the media before he left:

1. In the US it's "My Country 'Tis of Thee"

2. If you are playing the anthem in the UK, it's "God Save the Queen" since she is currently the reigning monarch.

Jane

Dave,

I’m confused. Why is he opening the borders if there is a travel ban? He must be really smart,

Captain Hate

Add Hillsdale college to the list of organizations that should state an amount of money you can send them after which they promise not to bug you for more.

clarice

Thanks, TM. Dr J deserves the tribute.

James D.

Outhouse apparently is unaware that the Proud Boys leader is a POC. Maybe it would be shorter to list the things she understands.

OK, I’m stumped.

MissMarple2

I got a fancy envelope in the mail with the front labeled "Donald J. Trump." It also said "2021 Membership cards enclosed."

I turned it over to see open it and sure enough, in VERY small letters it said "Republican National Committee." I threw it in the trash.

One would think those grifters would have some shame. Obviously not.

Captain Hate

Krugman might be more clueless than Outhouse. Are we sure that's not a parody account.

henry

I wonder if they did the same thing with vote by mail.

James D.

It’s not a parody, CH. it’s his account.

Well, I mean, obviously the man himself is a walking parody, but it’s his legitimate accountz

Thank you for this tribute, TM.

I remember reading that last comment and thinking about it. Very apropos.

God bless DrJ.

Althouse is super dumb.

Isn't The Lion King based on Hamlet? It's one of the few modern animated Disney movies I never bothered to see.

Catsmeat

Yes, and the whole movie is full of tremendous dissonances because it both treats all the animals as fully human and then celebrates the "kingship" of lions over giraffes, zebras, etc., who all bow down to the new prince in the opening scene. It's just too weird to cross feudalism with predation that directly--medieval kings didn't perhaps treat their subjects well, but they didn't (usually) tear them limb from limb (well, yes, actually THAT happened some), but then at least they didn't then EAT them!

Good afternoon! Thanks to TM for the DrJ tribute.
This morning I brought Scout to be groomed.
When I checked him in, a man came in with a beautiful Collie. I said, "oh, Lassie!" He smiled because I was struggling with a stubborn terrier and the Collie was calm and elegant.

I also saw a convoy of sweet vintage cars driving out of one of the local communities that all of you car guys would have loved.
So, how was your day? We were ignoring today's *festivities* until one of hubby's sisters called to tell us she's not going to rent in Florida in March. Because of mutant Covid.

Old Lurker

Good one from Codevilla:

I wonder what Althouse thinks of Song of the South? Or Jungle Book? I wonder what she thinks of Bagheera or King Louie?

Is the portrayal of orangutans racist?

What is the racial code embedded in Alladin? Is the Grand Vizier character raciss?

Enquiring minds want to know!

Old Lurker

Marlene "until one of hubby's sisters called to tell us she's not going to rent in Florida in March. Because of mutant Covid."

Coming from MY family, I would have to ask if that is good news or bad news.

:-)

matt - deplore me if you must

Mel, I find that Dove conditioner untangles photons better than the rest.

Old Lurker

Matt is right, Mel. Plus who wants a "Quantum Internet" anyway. Aren't they the ones who spread outrageous rumors just to fire up and mislead the Right?

Pinandpuller

If Biden’s a Catholic, how can he have a rabbi? Rabbi means master:

Biden's rabbi gave him a blessing before he stepped out to the inaugural stage, calling him akin to Moses leading America out of Egypt.

PCR positive is no longer = Covid. You are not Covid now unless you get a second test to confirm it, and are presenting clinical symptoms. We shall see what the net impact of this indeed is.

Know it well, OL. When I was back there for Frederick's 7th to 9th grade, I would drive by it everyday. But compared to the other "beach" houses on Meadow Lane (aka Billionaires Row)I find it lacking but that's just me. Down the lane from it is a compound W stayed at that to me is the ultiimate Hampton's beach hidey-hole.

I will bet right now it sells for 20-30% its asking price.

The lady was a big customer at our store.

Old Lurker

Jack, we have seen a real spike in sight unseen sales of high dollar year around houses on Nantucket as city folk continue to flee The Covid Monster. More than a few $4-8M older "summer only" homes were sold and torn down this summer.

Kathryn Anne

Thank you TM
So glad to have a tribute thread for the smart and kind and wonderful DrJ.
I am really going to miss his comments here and his positive view of life.
Had a wonderful birthday lunch with my daughter at The Summer House in Lakewood.
Jimmyk:
Glad you will be posting classical music excerpts.
I thought President Trump did a fine job of his farewell address and speech this morning.
Finally Obamagate documents released.
Caught sight of the former presidents and Hillary still looks a hanger on trying to believe she is relevant.
Meanwhile the documents reveal her as the villain behind the Russia collusion hoax which she and Pelosi are trying to revive as we speak.
No one is buying her BS.

Walter

God bless DrJ. He was one of the reasons to read the comment section. Always educated, never rude or demeaning. Such a kind and helpful man. I’ll miss him, and the world is a poorer place without him.

MissMarple2

Went down to pick up the Kroger order with my daughter, who started in on me getting the Corona vaccine. My sister had to make an appointment in Shelbyville as all of the close vaccination sites to her were full up. (This is the teacher sister.) She didn't want to go to the IU Med Center or any of the downtown hospitals because parking is too complicated.

So, I said that I would probably get it in the spring and preferred to get the one-shot one but I thought that one was the one that did something with your RNA so preferred to wait for the third one. She hadn't heard about the RNA thing and while we were waiting for groceries, looked it up. HA! Again I knew what I was talking about. Ta-da!

MissMarple2

My local friend just texted me that the Surgeon General (African American, by the way) has been asked to resign.

Democrats delayed Michael Pack's confirmation as head of US Agency for Global Media. As a result, Pack has been in office eight months of a three-year term. The Biden administration fired him in the first hour today. Pack's resignation letter: pic.twitter.com/tB8yOHMpah

I guess Joementia's handlers must have tried clueing him in on Presidential powers, because his long-promised "national mask mandate" is now an order to wear a mask on federal property and while using interstate transportation.

Kathryn Anne

Biden’s has been refused Communion a couple of times by wise priests who are aware of his hypocrisy.
One question:
Did Biden reinstate the USA providing money for international abortions today?
If so , he is in direct violation of Catholic rules and principles.
Currently, Jill is permitted communion even though she is divorced.
I don’t know if she got an annulment before she married Sleepy Joe,
The worst betrayal to me is the behavior of Republican leadership.
Pence surprised me the most.

henry,

Obviously Rhodes never read Kipling:

It was not part of their blood,
It came to them very late,
With long arrears to make good,
When the Saxon began to hate.

They were not easily moved,
They were icy — willing to wait
Till every count should be proved,
Ere the Saxon began to hate.

Their voices were even and low.
Their eyes were level and straight.
There was neither sign nor show
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not preached to the crowd.
It was not taught by the state.
No man spoke it aloud
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not suddently bred.
It will not swiftly abate.
Through the chilled years ahead,
When Time shall count from the date
That the Saxon began to hate.

Disney has culturally appropriated the Animal Kingdom, the South, The Middle East, China (Mulan), and countless other ethnically pure traditions. This has to stop. From now on they can only make documentaries about brave BLM and Antifa resistors. (Transistors come later).

jimmyk

Such a kind and helpful man. I’ll miss him, and the world is a poorer place without him.

Yes, to add to what I posted in the last thread, he was generous with offering his help regarding the maze of grant applications.

He was working on some very interesting stuff related to analyzing complex proteins in the body.

I recall that had applications to testing for or treatment of certain cancers, and that his operation was severely affected by the stupid lockdowns.

THAT WAS FAST: Minutes after Biden took office, the Report of President Trump’s 1776 Commission (on which my colleague Peter Kirsanow served) was taken off the White House website. I am told a Biden Executive Order has abolished the 1776 Commission already.

This afternoon I got an email from Pete. As he put it, this “tells you everything about the Left’s priorities–can’t have the truth about America out there for even a minute” and “I’m sure the Fahrenheit 451 crowd is tracking down every copy they can.”
