Re: Music for the Masses

I’m surprised they didn’t seem to mention him on Ken Burn’s Country music documentary, because artists that influenced other artists was a good deal of that series’ bread and butter. Burns really dropped the ball on country comedy. It's the one area where country music really distinguishes itself. ...

Re: Random covid-19 observations

I've been growing my hair out for over a year, so am reading all of the people worried about their haircuts with some amusement. Gonna have a lot of people coming out of the stay-at-home looking like Japanese high school baseball players. ;) It's bothering me because I wear a CPAP harness at night ...

Re: The Right Way to View Competing Political Horrors

Yes, Trump escalated the mistreatment of immigrants, and in that way is uniquely horrible. What I'm saying is that it was an escalation of what went on in all past administrations going back to Galt knows when, and that the scale of the problem in the scope of horrible things the government does is ...

Re: The Right Way to View Competing Political Horrors

I think Warren is bitter and just wants the world to burn. I think that's Trumps appeal to him. I think anyway. I do not want the world to burn. Trump has poured gasoline on it, but he didn't start the fire. And compared to other administrations he's a C or C+. What I don't buy is that he's some un...

Re: The Right Way to View Competing Political Horrors

From where I'm sitting the worst thing about the past four years is having to listen to people spew their deranged Trumphobia. When nobody's going to put you in a border camp, that's a perspective you can afford to have. This is what I'm saying. And the camps, horrible as they are: A Not the creati...

I don't see that.

MFA? Maybe it's the beerhiv but I can't recall what that'd be.

Re: The Right Way to View Competing Political Horrors

So is Warren being cynical about every aspect of governance, or is he being cynical about y'alls motives in making the voter-suppression argument? Primarily the former while suspecting the later. Considering he's ride or die "each side is equally as bad as each other in every way" no matter the top...

Re: The Right Way to View Competing Political Horrors

You keep bringing up motivations like they mean anything. Only someone's actions and how they affect the world around them matter when talking about politics. This doesn't just apply to politics. It's universal. If someone tries to kill you but isn't successful, you should continue to treat them ex...

Actually I'd be surprise that anybody is writing mortgages at this time because who knows if houses will be worth more than a fraction of what they sold for last year next year. Ugggghhhh, don't say that. I was so close to putting our house on the market. SO CLOSE! I mean, I have no idea. But 30% u...

Five miles down the road is Onodaga State park. There is a cave, access to the Meramec River, and a spring that empties into a pond (which empties to the river). Around the holding pond is a paved walking trail called Blue Heron Trail. It's a half mile and makes a nice one mile walk up and down. Whe...
