Morning Seditionists

Thursday

Today was a dental day for me, as I started out the day with a dentist appointment. Just a cleaning, but since my mouth has more filling and crown than teeth, it’s always an uncomfortable situation. And by uncomfortable, I mean painful. My teeth (what’s left of them, anyway) are terribly sensitive, and damn near everything makes them ache. I soldiered through the experience, but the dentist, while praising my “home care” efforts (after years of neglect, I’ve been a very good boy) managed to find some shit wrong, so I have to go back in a couple of weeks to get shit taken care of. More pain and money. Not looking forward to it, but I refuse to let shit go until it’s a painful, acute dental incident (been there, done that). Still, it sucks.

Our stretch of hot miserable weather has finally ended. Not that it’s exactly cold out, but it’s a hell of a lot better. When the cooler air came through last night, it of course sparked some storms. Although the lightning didn’t see to be too bad at our place, it didn’t keep the power from going out. I don’t know how long it was out, but Bill Maher didn’t record. I suppose I could watch it on HBO GO, but I saw that Grover Norquist was on, and I really have no desire to listen to that sniveling piece of shit. So unless somebody tells me it wasn’t totally unbearable to watch, I think I’ll pass.

Yet another day of too damn hot and muggy. It was 78° at about 4:45 this morning already, and it’s supposed to be up into the 90s again today (it was 94 yesterday, though I suppose I shouldn’t complain because it was 101 the year before). Even the pool water was 90° last night when I got home. You gotta remember, we’re just not built to deal with this heat the way you folks in Arizona and Florida and other warm weather places are. This is really gonna blow if this is just how it’s gonna be from now on. :hot:

In case you missed it, the perpetually offended have found something new to be outraged over (good news for Patton Oswalt). It appears that putting the Boston bomber dude’s picture on the cover of Rolling Stone has lots of people all kinds of pissed off. I guess I should be outraged, too, though I’m not sure why (I haven’t read the article, though, so maybe I’m missing something).

Not much of a surprise, I guess, but George Zimmerman was found not guilty of anything – not even manslaughter. Another fine day for the American “Justice” System. And for our friends in Florida, of course. You can’t even blame the verdict on stupid white men – it was an all female jury (5 out of 6 white, though). I saw that Zimmie’s lawyer said his client wouldn’t have even been tried if he was black. Uh-huh. Especially not if he was a black guy who stalked and killed an unarmed white kid. Though I doubt there are too many black neighborhood watch vigilantes in the gated community of Twin Lakes, Florida. If Georgie is smart, he won’t emulate his attorney, and will just go away somewhere and keep his yap shut, rather than become a Fux news media darling (though I suppose a book is inevitable). I wonder if a civil suit is possible? Sure seems like wrongful death to me (but then, I’m no Fat Tony Scalia).

Sedition – It’s Not Just For Mornings Anymore

About a million years ago (OK, more like 33 years ago, give or take), I was in college at a place called Oswego (second in my tour of colleges). One of the really cool things about college (especially in a small town) is that you get to see some really good non-main stream concerts. One of the ones I got to see was David Bromberg. Needless to say (so why say it), it was a great show. Afterwards, we had a keg going down “on the beach” (the shores of Lake Ontario next to the campus), and who came down but David Bromberg and his band mates. I was pretty wasted by then, put I’m pretty sure a great time was had by all. I miss the olden days.

I was listening to NPR yesterday (not sure what show – they all just kind of blend into one another these days), and they did a report on “why Americans use the same hand for their knife and their fork?” This is probably not the dumbest story I’ve ever heard on NPR, but I can’t think of anything more stupid at the moment. According to whoever the hell they had on as a knife and fork expert, Americans cut their food, then put the knife down and switch the fork over to their cutting hand, while Europeans don’t.

Happy Birthday to one of the top three nations (not counting the indigenous ones) in North America. 237 years ago, our founding fathers and their slaves aspired to form a more perfect union. Today, we aspire to be Canada. Or I do, anyway. Not that Canada is perfect (they’re not all that great with their First Peoples either, for one thing), but they at least seem to kill a lot less of each other and they have health care and stuff.

Wow, been a whole week since I posted anything up here. What a slacker. It’s mostly because I don’t really have much to say. Sadly, I still don’t (unless you want to hear how much rain we’ve had around here – which is a lot better than what’s going on in Arizona), but I figured I ought to put something up, lest everybody think I’ve retired (or died).
