True story. Dad's side of the family prides themselves on being "100% Norwegian". In my genealogical research I uncovered a 3x great grandmother who was clearly described as Danish by birth. That did not go over well.

Mrs Doof used to be a YUUUUUUUUGE fan of U2. So was I. We have seen them more times that I care to admit. Swallowed enough of their politics for far too long.

Do you fear the force of the wind,
The slash of the rain?
Go face them and fight them,
Be savage again.
Go hungry and cold like the wolf,
Go wade like the crane:

The skin of your cheek will tan,
You'll grow ragged and weary and swarthy,
But you'll walk like a man!

Joe Biden carried himself with a seasoned air of confidence that new presidents seldom possess. The Biden doctrine will be tested in the months ahead as the relationship he's crafting with Putin and other leaders develops.

118 Melbye captures the feel of ships and boats in the evening. The last of the sunset reflecting off the clouds and water, the dropping breeze and smaller waves letting the soft sounds of rigging and wood come through, even at a distance. I've heard it and it's a relaxing moment that calls for a comfortable chair, good beer, and a pipe with mellow tobacco. Yeah, I might be projecting.

I like the way the artist blends the distribution of light from the sky down to the water and how it shows just a bit of detail on the ships and boats. Hugely effective. If I had a den I would hang it there with just the right lamp to illuminate it.

119 Temp Firm Financed By Stacey Abrams Infiltrated All Levels Of GA Government, Including Governor's Office
Investigators have uncovered payments by a myriad of Georgia government agencies to the temp firm 'Happy Faces Staffing' financed by the firm 'Now Account' of which Stacey Abrams (former state rep and GA gubernatorial candidate) is an owner. The payments show the firm was also compensated by the GA governor's office in 2020, showing work done for GA Governor Brian Kemp.

Has anyone read MH's "A Winter's Tale"? The main protagonist Peter Lake came to America with his parents as a baby on an ocean liner of immigrants. Just as their ship gets into sight of the statue of liberty and to ellis island the boat is turned away because the crew found the presence of the plague on board. So there's a riot on the ship and the parents find themselves in the crew's stateroom where they have a little model of the ocean liner under glass. They know they will all die of the plague before they get home. It's a death sentence so they cut open the model, put in a blanket and their baby, and push him towards NYC. Typical MH sweet magical surrealism. I recommend the book.

132 Morning, 'rons and 'ronettes. Someone mentioned Evelyn Nesbit yesterday, so:

Nesbit was born in either 1884 / 5 (records were destroyed and she never remembered), growing up poor and eventually settling in Philadelphia, where, as a sales clerk, a woman artist noticed her and asked her to pose. Soon afterwards, Evelyn was a popular model, making enough money to move to New York and become an in-demand subject for dozens of artists including Charles Dana Gibson, who used Evelyn as one of the models for his iconic "Gibson Girl."

https://tinyurl.com/3ryzk57c

Tiring of modeling, Evelyn moved to Broadway, joining the chorus of the popular musical Floradora in 1901 and there catching the eye of architect and bon viveur Stanford White. White, who had a "thing" for young girls, became Nesbit's patron, introducing her to the high life, advising her on dress and behavior and, inevitably, taking her virginity after spiking her champagne.

White had relationships with many other young chorines, however, and Evelyn soon found herself the obsessive object of millionaire Harry Thaw, who nursed an equally obsessive hatred of White. In 1905, the two married. [Part One]

"Klan rallies" they will be called.
People have been fired for merely attending the 1/6 rally -- not going anywhere near the Capital, just being on the National Mall.

Anyone who attends a new Trump rally will be named and shamed, cancelled and ostracized. If you're in a position to weather that, go for it. If not, consider the worst, as it's now a legit possibility.

I suspect you may be right, especially with the continued MFM lying about the "insurrection." I am hoping that enough people are pissed off that they will go to the rallies and will play knockout game with any media jackhole they encounter. I want such overwhelming numbers to his rallies that the feckless GOP and the treasonous Dems realize we are not going away.

But I expect I will be wrong.

About dang time! Soon after MA passed SSM the Catholic Charities adoption agency shutdown.
