Hold my beer, Gabriel! by baldilocks Ten years already. Flight 1549 took off from LaGuardia a decade ago Tuesday, with [now-retired Captain Chesley 'Sully'] Sullenberger's co-pilot [Jeff] Skiles at the controls, three flight attendants and 150 passengers aboard.

There is a price to be paid for divorcing actions and concepts from the words that describe them. … Continue reading What’s Growing in Your Garden?
I've been arguing for over a year that the media has been doing their best to hide the true condition of this presidential race, but as Glenn Reynolds often says what can't go on forever won't. Today some interesting sources of evidence have shown the jig might finally be up. Erick Erickson finally sees it: … Continue reading Demoralized as Hell, Erick Erickson ATLJackie edition
I woke up a little later that normal today and DaWife who has really been pushing herself lately was asleep so I went downstairs before turning the TV just in time to see Mika say "Democrats know how to throw a convention."
