The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

“This is extremely concerning. The ship and containers are very close to Victoria, BC, and a big storm is forecast to hit tonight. We … are worried this may be yet another environmental disaster,” David Boudinot, president of Surfrider Foundation Canada, an environmental group

Quote II

"You never let the muzzle of a weapon cover something you don't intend to destroy." Bryan Carpenter

Quote III

“I do not have an accounting of what the Chinese may have done, and I am fully in favor of any further investigation of what went on in China. However, I will repeat again — the NIH and NIAID categorically has not funded gain-of-function research to be conducted in the Wuhan Institute of Virology," Anthony Fauci

This is a stunning decision. Illinois State Supreme Court rules 6-0 in favor of gun rights in Cook County (Chicago).


The Illinois Supreme Court ruled on Oct. 21 that two taxes on guns and ammunition in Cook County violate the state’s constitution because they affect law-abiding citizens’ Second Amendment right to acquire firearms for self-defense.


Supreme Court Justice Mary Jane Theis wrote in a 6–0 decision that the taxes violate the constitution’s uniformity clause, while also pointing out that the revenue from the generated tax isn’t directed toward funds or programs that reduce gun violence.

“While the taxes do not directly burden a law-abiding citizen’s right to use a firearm for self-defense, they do directly burden a law-abiding citizen’s right to acquire a firearm and the necessary ammunition for self-defense,” Theis wrote in a 14-page opinion (pdf) filed on Thursday.

“Under the plain language of the ordinances, the revenue generated from the firearm tax is not directed to any fund or program specifically related to curbing the cost of gun violence,” she noted. “Additionally, nothing in the ordinance indicates that the proceeds generated from the ammunition tax must be specifically directed to initiatives aimed at reducing gun violence.”

When whips are outlawed only outlaws will have whips, at least in downtown Reno, NV.

The Reno City Council voted to ban the possession and use of whips without a permit in downtown Reno on Wednesday.

Councilwoman Jenny Brekhus, who said she was not present when the ordinance was introduced, was the only no vote.

Brekhus said that she wants the ordinance applied city-wide and expressed concern that as is, the ban targets certain demographics.

City attorney Karl Hall explained that the ordinance is restricted to the downtown area because complaints to the police were concentrated in that area. He added that there may be areas outside of downtown where whips may be useful

Add one more thing I'm guilty of to my rap sheet. Middlebury hires counseling director who claims 'whiteness' is the cause of 'psychic suffering'

Last month, Middlebury College hired Alberto Soto to serve as its Director of Counseling. In an interview Soto told The Middlebury Campus that “source of all our psychic suffering,” are “whiteness, heteronormativity,” and “patriarchal systems”.

“The body and mind cannot be healed solely by self-care and focusing on surviving,” Soto told the student newspaper. “At some point we must address and identify the source of all our psychic suffering, which is whiteness, heteronormativity, patriarchal systems, etc.”

Soto earned his PhD in psychology at Brigham Young University, a conservative, Mormon institution.

I'm sorry fans of baseball, I just never got into that sport. But I find the World Series being played in the State of Georgia pretty damn satisfying.

ATLANTA — Atlanta is still seething that Major League Baseball stripped the All-Star Game away from their beloved city this summer.

Well, politics or not, there’s absolutely nothing MLB can do to stop Atlanta now.

Atlanta will host the World Series for the first time since 1999.

The Braves knocked off the defending champion Los Angeles Dodgers, 4-2, winning the National League pennant Saturday night.

Repeat after me says Terry McAuliffe: Donald Trump was not reelected and Stacey Abrams is the governor of Georgia.

Virginia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe claimed that Stacey Abrams should be the governor of Georgia, accusing Brian Kemp (who ran for governor while also serving as secretary of state) of having "disenfranchised" more than 1 million Georgia voters in the state's 2018 gubernatorial election.

"She would be the governor of Georgia today had the governor of Georgia not disenfranchised 1.4 million Georgia voters before the election," McAuliffe said as he introduced Abrams at a campaign event on Sunday. "That's what happened to Stacey Abrams. They took the votes away."

Genius Award Winner and Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day all wrapped into one story.


A woman accused of participating in a drive-by shooting spree the morning of Sept. 30 died last week in a local hospital from the effects of a drug overdose she suffered in jail, Santa Fe police confirmed Monday.

Officers learned during their investigation Brianna Romero, 20, died Oct. 10 at Presbyterian Santa Fe Medical Center, Deputy Chief Paul Joye said.

Romero was one of three people arrested in the shooting, which damaged several apartment buildings and vehicles on Jaguar Drive and led to lockdowns at Capital High and other nearby schools. She and her sister, Deavonne Romero, 23, and 16-year-old Elijah Gallegos were charged with over a dozen felonies.

After the arrests, Deavonne Romero was booked in the Santa Fe County jail, and Gallegos was sent to the San Juan County juvenile detention facility. But Brianna Romero was taken to Presbyterian Santa Fe Medical Center for treatment of an opioid overdose. It would be the first of two overdoses she experienced while in custody.

After her arrest around 11 a.m. Sept. 30, Brianna Romero was placed in a holding cell at the Santa Fe Police Department’s headquarters on Camino Entrada, Joye said. Just after 12:30 p.m., he said, she was found unresponsive in her cell.

Officers attempted lifesaving measures, including the administration of the anti-overdose drug naloxone, until emergency medical responders arrived, police reports say. Doctors at Presbyterian later discovered a bag of pills, which investigators suspected to be fentanyl, in a body cavity.

Romero was released from the hospital at 5:45 p.m. that day after doctors provided medical clearance for her incarceration. She was booked into the jail two hours later, records show.

The next morning, a guard found her unresponsive in her cell “approximately 20 minutes” after a previous guard check. She was taken to Presbyterian a second time and again was “revived with Narcan,” a Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office report says. But she was still suffering from cardiac events. A doctor found a bag with “clear crystals” in a body cavity.

They disengaged and heartfelt hugs were exchanged.

Sadly, Murphy wins easily again by 5% points. NJ will never get better...like ever.

Virginia will be closer but not close enough - McAuliffe by 3% or perhaps 4% - all from NoVA, of course.

The Dems don't bring in Obama and then lose...that was to motivate the walking around money, meaning the cash that liberal donors supply - the benjis that get crack ho Tricksy and her pimp Huggy Bear to write out all the ballots that the Dems need to win at $1 a ballot - which I have heard from some lobbyist is the going rate.

Everyone knows that the Dems can't lost VA - the GOP isn't even sending money in or any big name GOP politicians to plump for Youngkin because that's not the deal here. VA is Dem territory - and the RNC knows it.

By the way the article is written, it appears that both the Santa Fe PD and Sheriff's Office were involved. It is normally one or the other that has primary jurisdiction. And if the decedent was in a medical facility and found to have drugs hidden in a "body cavity" nothing should stop a search of all other body cavities for additional drug stashes by medical personnel. What a sad situation.

And the SFSO is the same outfit that is investigating the Alec Baldwin shooting. Zero confidence in the SO's ability to carry out the investigation properly. Sad!

The four star thing is not in the military. Not in the military.

It is part of the commissioned core of the US public health service, a uniform service of the US government that is answerable to and part of the department of health and human services. They use military ranks as the US public health service ultimately derived from the Marine corps military medical service in the 1790s.

To get to play dress up and wear nice uniforms and get medals and ranks and benefits equivalent to the military service and all that shit but they are not part of the department of defense structure in any way shape or form.

Somebody gave me three old laptops, sans HDs, last week. Today I tinkered with the Toshiba 4090XDVD: i386 Centrino single-core, 64MB ram. I found a 21-year old HDD in my junkbox that had the appropriate carrier to fit the chassis. To my astonishment, it booted Win 98SE, and ran fast. But after 15 minutes, it halted with the 'truck backing up' beeping sound. I assume fan has failed, but it's not worth putting a new fan in. Next I try to resurrect two Gateway CX2720s, with somewhat more powerful CPU, and higher RAM capacity.

250 Somebody gave me three old laptops, sans HDs, last week. Today I tinkered with the Toshiba 4090XDVD: i386 Centrino single-core, 64MB ram. I found a 21-year old HDD in my junkbox that had the appropriate carrier to fit the chassis. To my astonishment, it booted Win 98SE, and ran fast. But after 15 minutes, it halted with the 'truck backing up' beeping sound. I assume fan has failed, but it's not worth putting a new fan in. Next I try to resurrect two Gateway CX2720s, with somewhat more powerful CPU, and higher RAM capacity.

Here's the deal with the AKMOME. I will set aside a week, so it can be a rolling festival. Over the next couple of weeks, I will post an email connection and collect tourist stuff for everyone, and then I will start collecting names or at least numbers. Depending on how many and how long, I will rent a yurt, or set aside some rooms locally, or something like that. Options are open at this time, but if we want to make this last a few days, more the better.

Salmon over the fire, always bacon, reindeer sausages, open bar (sort of, BYOB and pass it, dude, but we will bring local beers), we will hopefully have a well drilled and electric dropped, so bring your camper, or rent one, if you are adventurous and want to stay out on the site.

They are setting up the armorer to be the fall gal for the Baldwin shooting, looks like. If you can believe what they're saying about her, she was pretty sloppy, but that should be on Baldwin as the producer more than anyone.

Latest I read was this armorer gal and other crew were using the guns for target practice, with real bullets. IOW, informally "checking out" the weapons, using them, and bringing them back. Which would explain how real ammo got mixed in.

There was a post by the gaffer on the Rust today which I just read. Name is Sergey Svetnoy. He claims he was standing next the woman when she was shot and was with her as she died. He blames the entire weapons dept, the armorer gal chief among them, but everyone else in the chain. Says they were not qualified and didn't know what they were doing and blames the "producers" ultimately for allowing this to go on.

I was sympathetic until the last, when he completely absolves Baldwin, saying he's a victim who will have to live with this for the rest of his life. I thought Baldwin was one of the producers. And he was the last man in the chain, and the one who pulled the trigger.

Yep, there is a full court press to absolve and protect Baldwin.

Baldwin was "the" producer, AFAIK. If the gunshot victim was the actor scheduled to be "shot" by Baldwin in the take of the scene, then maybe it could be passed off as a tragic accident. But when it's camera woman and AD who get shot, by the producer, after he blurts out, "maybe I should just shoot you!", then wanton recklessness enters the scene.

463 Late to the discussion, but I had a thought which I have not seen brought up -- has everyone who handled the gun that day been drug tested????

It looks like the Armourer is mostly responsible, but anyone in the chain of custody needs to be tested and up on charges if there is any evidence of any drugs. Just saying.

I also think Baldwin is not culpable in his role as actor, but is very culpable in his role as producer and the main person with authority on the set as the producer and star. He too needs to be drug tested.

Every time I hear the phrase "reckless discharge of a firearm" (which is a criminal charge), I think of the great country ballad, "Bubba Shot the Jukebox".

The jukebox at a honky tonk played a sad song, which made Bubba cry (he was apparently having woman trouble), so he shot the jukebox.

The Sheriff charged Bubba with "reckless discharge of a firearm", to which Bubba replied, "Reckless hell! I hit where I was aimin'!"

474 Another thought I had was that *if* there was a walkoff before hand, and *if* it was about working conditions and previous problems with handling the firearms, then it is possible that someone mixed up the rounds intentionally before walking off as a way to show how unsafe things were.

Unlikely, but I can see some (stoned) cable monkey doing it without thinking it would cause real harm. But unlikely and I do not want to slander anyone with no knowledge - just raising the possibility.

Unless you can prove Baldwin knew for a fact there were live rounds in the gun, and that he intended to fire live rounds at the victims, I don't think you can prove murder in a court of law.

But the facts, as so far presented, easily support a charge of manslaughter or negligent homicide.

505 gotta be at the VA in the morning for blood draws for an upcoming appointment, and some of them need to be done in the early AM, to be accurate.

plus it's likely to be pouring rain, which means traffic will suck more than usual, so getting there an back will take longer...

all of which means i need to get to bed while it's stilll Sunday.

509 Some of you guys act like marijuana is some new thing no one's ever smoked before. Cannabinoids are not carcinogenic. Burning plant matter, of any kind, does create toxic stuff, though tobacco is particularly pernicious. Vaporizing weed, keeping the temp below 370F, cuts out a lot of that. Oral usage obviates all of it. Of course, all recreational substances should not be used when safety is important.

Gun Thread: Howdy From Texas Edition!

texas flag 102421 scaled.jpg

Howdy, Y'all! Welcome to the wondrously fabulous Gun Thread! As always, I want to thank all of our regulars for being here week in and week out, and also offer a bigly Gun Thread welcome to any newcomers who may be joining us tonight. Howdy and thank you for stopping by! I hope you find our wacky conversation on the subject of guns 'n shooting both enjoyable and informative. You are always welcome to lurk in the shadows of shame, but I'd like to invite you to jump into the conversation, say howdy, and tell us what kind of shooting you like to do!

Q: Guess who is deep in the Heart of Texas?
A: Weasel! Weasel are deep in the heart of Texas!!

That's right, I am writing this on Tuesday after arriving at the beautiful ranch belonging to Rancher Bob and Cow Horse Queen late Monday afternoon. The trip down is a full two days, and although it's a pretty drive, there is a lot of it! Anyhoo, went to dinner last night with Ben Had, RB, and CHQ, then sat around an outdoor fire solving the problems of the word and catching up since last year. They are truly wonderful people, and other than displaying the questionable intelligence of inviting me into their home, are the kind of folks I'm proud to have as friends.

Anyhoo, as you are reading this Sunday I will be on my way back to Virginia with another incredible Texas MoMe in the books. We'll have laughed, and we'll have cried. We'll have eaten, drinken, and been merry. Since I am writing this in advance I will not have time to include details of the MoMe, but you are welcome to discuss all the fun in the comments below this evening, and I will include a Post MoMe Discussion & Analysis section next week!

Post TXMoMe Sunday Update: Made it to Nashville. Ho-lee Shitballs!!! How much fun was that?!?! I'm still trying to absorb the events of the last few days, and I'm still pretty much speechless after last evening. You all are the BEST, and I love you all. I will have a more complete thank you next Sunday!

With that, let's get to the gun stuff below, shall we?

******

Re-Run O' Rama!
I hinted at this last Sunday, but I need to put this together sort of quickly so we can start preparing later today for the TXMoMe beginning Friday. I have decided I am best suited for a supervisory role which does not involve a lot of actual work, so after unloading guns n' ammo n' my lawn chair from the car, I'll pretty much finished with my part of the process and will be patiently waiting on everyone else to hurry the hell up with their stuff. Supervisin' is hard work!

For those of you attending, the weather forecast is just about perfect. Daytime highs in the 80s and evenings in the 60s with a breeze which can make it cool. Also, breezy during the day which will give us some interesting wind problems to solve on the range!

I am really looking forward to everyone getting here, saying hello and doing some shooting together! Hurry up, Y'all!

M1A 102421 scaled.jpg


1999 Springfield Armory, Inc. M1A Loaded Model

I have to admit I think this may be my favorite rifle. I just like everything about it. It's well balanced, fun to shoot, fun to look at, sort of fun to clean (not really), and makes it seem like I know what I'm doing on a rifle range. Pointy end downrange, right?

The M1A is the semi-automatic civilian version of the M14. Chambered in .308 Winchester or 7.62x51mm NATO, the fully automatic M14 was introduced as a replacement for the M1 Garand beginning in 1959, and served as the U.S. battle rifle until the arrival of the M16 around 1964. The M14 continues to be used by specialized units to this day.

In 1974, Springfield Armory, Inc., a private corporation headquartered in Genesco, IL., began production of the M1A. Offering several different models with an array of features; the M1A remains popular with competitive shooters, marksmen, hunters and sportsmen alike. The M1A 'Loaded' model pictured above includes as standard a number of match grade components including a National Match barrel, front and rear sights and two stage military trigger. Although not standard on the Loaded model, this particular rifle has a custom bedding job and was very clearly someone's well cared for match rifle. Although I haven't done any scientific measuring, with decent ammo off a bench I think this is probably very close to a 1 MOA rifle. Did I mention it was fun to shoot?

ammo 1 102421 scaled.jpg

Although very small physical and pressure differences do exist, .308 Winchester and 7.62x51mm NATO ammunition is interchangeable, with the .308 Win developing slightly higher pressure. Over the years, the military has produced M80 Ball, M118 Match and M852 NATO Match ammunition to varying degrees of accuracy. Unfortunately, military loads are often driven by the economics of component availability, with accuracy sometimes becoming a secondary consideration. Whether you're shooting surplus, commercial or handloaded ammunition, look for a bullet weight in the 168 gr to 175 gr range, and a muzzle velocity around 2600 fps for best performance.

2021 Update : Here is a video I made at the farm shooting this rifle

Did I bring this rifle to Texas? No, unfortunately I am not that smart. Maybe next year!

Interesting Variation on Classic IWB Carry


Anyone else use the Advanced Lower Back Muzzle Peekaboo style for concealed carry?

A few weeks ago we talked about buying a first gun, and today I'd like to discuss carry permits and carrying a weapon.

I firmly believe that the single best carry gun in the universe is the one you actually have with you when you need it. Regardless of caliber, sights, custom trigger and all the rest, the gun you left at home in your sock drawer isn't going to do you a whole lot of good when the unexpected occurs. This is why some gun owners get a concealed weapon permit and then carry a concealed weapon.

Before we begin the usual banter and fun commentary, a serious note:
Not everyone wants or needs to carry a gun, and if you aren't comfortable doing so, then you are one who probably shouldn't consider it. I'd feel better if you did, but it's a big responsibility, and not something to ever be taken casually. Carrying a gun is a very serious business and needs to be treated as such. If the unthinkable occurs and God forbid you use a weapon to defend yourself or others, in the time it takes to pull the trigger you will have changed your life, and presumably the target's life, forever.

Think about that.

As I write this, reports are just coming in of another horrific mass shooting, this time at a nightclub in Thousand Oaks, California. What drove the person to commit such a heinous acts will probably never be known. However, I think it's safe to say we do know a couple of important facts; we will never be able to un-invent, or confiscate, all the guns, and just one properly trained and armed person in a crowd of hundreds would have at least had a chance to stop the massacre.

Think about that, too.

OK, end of Mr. Serious-Pants.

*******

The Permit
I live in Virginia, and like many states today, at one time it was nearly impossible to get a concealed carry permit here. Things have changed, and today as long as you pass a background check and can demonstrate competency with a firearm, you should be approved for a permit. For me the process was straightforward; submit fingerprints with an application, show that I'd attended a brief but practical course on the topic, and pay a fee to the city where I live. A few weeks later, the permit came in the mail. There are going to be some variables to the process based on where you live but Virginia is likely representative of other "shall issue" states, where one must only meet the criteria specified in the law and is not required to demonstrate a subjective 'need' to be considered for approval.

Do you have a permit? For those living in "may issue" states, what was the 'need' you specified and how were you required to support the claim?

What to Carry
You've gone through the process of obtaining a permit to carry a concealed weapon, and your next decision is likely what As I mentioned above, any gun is better than no gun. I would much rather be armed with some puny girly-man caliber handgun than relying on throwing bags of Fritos and Slim Jims at the bad guy holding up the gas station late at night. So which handgun is my carry gun, you ask? Well using my super-genius reasoning, they're all candidates, with varying degrees of suitability. My main carry gun is one designed for the job, a Kimber Compact Custom in 45 ACP with a 4 inch barrel.

kimber 102421 scaled.jpg
Kimber Compact Custom


Another handgun that I carry is a revolver, the S&W Model 686 in .357 Magnum with a 2 1/2 inch barrel. I carry this gun mostly at the farm with the first two or three cylinders loaded with rat or snake shot. Haven't had to use it yet.

sw686 102421 scaled.jpg
Smith & Wesson Model 686

The common element for both guns is absolute reliability and a short barrel, and I practice with them enough to hit the center of a target at a reasonable distance.

Which gun do you carry and why? Is bigger always better, or is comfort and concealability a greater consideration for you?

***How to Carry It***
Now you've gone through the process of obtaining a permit to carry a concealed weapon and found the ideal weapon to carry - so what are your options for carrying it around?

Most people like to use holsters, but other options do exist. Like a handbag or purse for girls, and the man bag or satchel (*snicker*) for boys. There's even a rig employing the under-bewb or frontal overhang region as a concealment area for the ladies (and some of the gentlemen). All sorts of contraptions exist to conceal a firearm, but in my opinion, the farther you get away from a simple and straightforward sidearm holster, the less useable the firearm becomes. Unless of course you're a super-badass quickdrawing mo-fo with cat-like reflexes, of which the internet breeds many. And don't forget that states have very specific definitions for weapons in vehicles and what is considered 'concealment' - know the laws wherever and however you travel.

I prefer Outside Waist Band (OWB) holsters over Inside Waist Band (IWB). They seem to be more comfortable to me, but both work. The best holster for you is the one that's comfortable FOR YOU, and isn't such a miserable experience you're tempted to leave the whole mess at home to begin with. Ask around and don't be surprised if you have to try a few over time to get one that feels right.

I like these holsters - do you have a favorite brand or style?

m1a exploded 102421 scaled.jpg
No worries - That'll buff out!

When it comes to ruining your day, this is a pretty effective way to do it.

exploded 102421 scaled.jpg

Today let's talk about getting a bigger bang than expected. Or a smaller bang than expected. Or pretty much any sort of result other than you expected.

Squib Loads and Barrel Blockages
Over the years, I have reloaded a lot of handgun and rifle ammunition, and have had a squib load block the barrel exactly once. When it happened, I could tell the recoil and sound were completely wrong and fortunately didn't pull the trigger again. After making the gun safe I took a peek and could see the bullet resting peacefully about 1/4 inch from the end of the barrel just waiting to cause a disaster. Ruh Roh!
What had happened is this; I was load testing and measuring muzzle velocity in a series of cartridges with decreasing powder charges, and although still above the published minimum, this particular round didn't make it out of the barrel. Muzzle velocity = 0 feet per second. Test concluded.

There are a couple of lessons here. First, pay attention to what the hell is going on while you're shooting. It is possible to become so focused on the target, and looking good for the range babes, that you lose sight of everything else. If something jams, or breaks, or sounds and feels different, stop pulling the trigger and investigate. If you're a new shooter and not quite sure what to do, put the gun down pointed in a safe direction and call over the RSO. Explain what you think is going on and let them help you. Second, be very careful when reloading. Things can go wrong even when you haven't done anything overtly retarded. I was trying to find a lower velocity accuracy node and while I was technically above the minimum published load, apparently the bullet didn't get the memo. If I hadn't realized what had happened, I could have turned an annoyance (tapping the bullet out later) into a big mess - ruining the barrel of a nice revolver, or worse.

Squib barrel 102421 scaled.jpg
How is This Even Possible?

Here's an extremely lucky cat who just used up eleven lives and is fortunate to have only ruined a barrel. Hands and fingers and eyeballs are much more difficult to replace. Did someone really pull the trigger that many times, even stopping to reload the gun, without realizing something was wrong?

And speaking of reloading...

Big Reloading No-No: Double Charge or Wrong Powder
Reloading can be fun and a rewarding part of shooting. For competitive shooters it can be a necessity, and for normal people it can be an economical way to shoot more and not be totally dependent on retail ammunition supply. It can also turn a fun day at the range into a complete nightmare if you are not absolutely focused on the job at hand while at the reloading bench. I'm pretty cautious by nature, and even more so while I'm reloading. Just as there are safety rules to follow while handling firearms, some must also be followed while reloading.

First, I allow zero distractions. Realizing my limited mental faculties do not permit me to do two things at once, I don't watch TV or listen to the radio while I'm reloading. I don't even want anyone talking to me while I'm at the reloading bench, and will stop what I'm doing if a distraction presents itself. I pause at each step and check my work.

can you tell a difference 1 102421 scaled.jpg
Can you Tell a Difference?

<not the same 102421 scaled.jpg
Confusing on Purpose?

The biggest potential for excitement relates to powder. When I started reloading I was surprised to learn there are literally hundreds of types of gunpowder all burning at different rates. The unit of measure for gunpowder is the grain (gr) which is equal to 1/7000th of a pound. In some cases, a safe load can become unsafe when it varies by as little as a few tenths of one grain, so imagine the mayhem if you inadvertently doubled the amount of powder in a cartridge. One good way to avoid this is by selecting a powder in which the desired load cannot be doubled without overflowing the case (volumetrically greater than 50% of the case capacity). Hopefully the observant reloader will notice gunpowder spilling all over the place and make some adjustments. Another problem is forgetting the powder altogether - see squib, above.

model 29 exploded 102421 SCALED.jpg
This Isn't Good

A mistake with potentially disastrous consequences is simply using the wrong powder, and it's easy to do if you're not paying attention. Pressures developed in modern cartridges can easily exceed 50,000 psi and selecting the incorrect powder, for example using a fast burning powder in place of a slow one, can easily exceed the design pressures of the gun and result in a catastrophic failure. The only way I know to help prevent this is to never keep more than one powder on the reloading bench at a time and always check and recheck the powder you have selected before beginning a reloading session.

Have any of the reloaders among us had an accident (or a scare) related to reloading? What happened and how would you recommend preventing it from happening again?

34 I think the Springfield Armory M1A version made sense. The full auto M-14 did not and the development and manufacturing of it was a trainwreck. The Italians used the Garand as the basis for their 7.62 Nato rifles and they did so with their BM-59 versions both faster and cheaper.

Pasture Distances
From where the back porch will be to the first tree line: 1584 ft., aka 530 yds. Not to the inch.
From the back porch with a dogleg right to the National Grasslands fence, which would require cutting down four trees - 2112 ft., aka 700 yds.
Looks like I'm stuck with 530 yds.

42 A matching set is requested. They go to their local range at least weekly.

Well, I didn't spend that kind of $$$ on my own kid's wedding gifts but if money is no object, why not. There are obviously federal issues if you and they are not residents of the same state. Even if you are, it might be better to go to the gun shop, tell them what you want, pay for it, and then have the recipients go do the paperwork themselves.

43 When I am discussing the Springfield Armory M1A, I am fully aware that it was originally a parts version of the M-14 with a semi auto receiver then became manufacturing using new parts made by the private Springfield Armory. A box magazine made sense for the Garand and John Garand's original design included it. It was dropped by Army request sometime before production started on the Garand.

Posted by: whig at October 24, 2021 06:20 PM (xunV5)

44 38 I've been wanting to buy an M1A for a while now. Springfield has some versions that are shorter/less barrel that interest me the most. I have an M1 and find it is just too damn large/cumbersome for a small guy like me.

46 Mini-range report, dateline TxMoMe:

Eromero and Jim NSD did their usual exemplary job running the pistol range. They are the definition of perfection that Glock can only fantasize about obtaining.

I personally did little shooting, but stood by while a few shooters tried a couple of items I brought. I left with two significant observations.

I think very highly of the Sig P-365 as a carry piece. For me, it is small, and punches significantly above its weight accuracy-wise. However, a couple of shooters had issues with initial accuracy, and more significantly one kept hitting the magazine release, while another had difficultly manipulating it. Basically, an object lesson that what's right for one person won't be for another, and you're well off trying as many as possible before buying.

The second observation is that nurse ratched can shoot a 1911, with 23 of 24 rounds going into ~1.5" at ~ 11 yards. She shot so well that the steel target cried uncle after 12 rounds, and fell off its stand.

Posted by: Duncanthrax at October 24, 2021 06:21 PM (a3Q+t)

47 As to the M1A differences from the M1, because of the magazine, the M14/M1A didn't have that comforting *PING!* sound when your rifle is empty.

Weasel, I also noted you're pulling the sling tight when shooting in that position. What's your reasoning for doing that? (I can think of a couple.) [Yeah, Weasel ain't here. I'm hoping he reads the comments and responds next week.]

53 Hi Weasel! Based on my visit to my LGS and looking at SG Ammo's listings, I think the shortage is over for the NATO standard calibers (9mm X 19, 5.56mm X 45, etc.). The LGS just got in a shipment (1 case of 2000 rounds) of .38 Special and had .45 ACP, but it wasn't cheap. If you're looking for (formerly) common hunting rounds (.30-30, .30-06), good luck trying to find anything. Prices are coming down for NATO standard calibers, but not as much for anything else.

Posted by: Ed L at October 24, 2021 06:23 PM (NacE+)

54 42. That is essentially the plan. They're going to order the pair and I'll pay the bill. It seems much more practical and sensible than the gold earrings/cufflinks we did with kid1. Not cheap, but a gift that can last a lifetime, unless they take up canoeing.

Well, if you're a certain kind of former Marine, and encounter a certain kind of soy boy robber, you can just push his gun out of the way and give him a solid haymaker, then take _his_ gun away. All while not even letting go of your Slim Jims and Fritos. (I'm sure you've all seen the video.)

58 Before we begin the usual banter and fun commentary, a serious note:
Not everyone wants or needs a carry permit, and if you aren't comfortable doing so, then you are one who probably shouldn't consider it. I'd feel better if you didn't, but it's a big responsibility, and not something to ever be taken casually. Having a carry permit is a very serious business and needs to be treated as such. If the unthinkable occurs and God forbid you put yourself on a list....

Move to a free state that observes Constitutional Carry. I believe we're up to 23 states now. Even Texas finally got on board with it.

Posted by: insurgens ad opus at October 24, 2021 06:25 PM (COPCI)

59 Yes, I have a carry permit and prefer to carry a snubby revolver in a pocket holster. (I gave it a LOT of thought before deciding to carry.) Not entirely happy about pocket carry since it's a problem to get the gun out when seated in the car. As I continue to lose weight I will likely look into an outside the waist band holster especially since I never tuck in my shirt any more. Same with the little S and W Shield 9mm.

I practice with the carry guns at seven to ten yards and can reliably keep a 2 inch or less group rapid fire. That size group took some time to learn, it wasn't without effort.

Blank powders are very fast powders generating a lot of hot gas and pressure in a hurry and can blow up a pistol if not careful or if there is a barrel obstruction.

100 BTW, I'm still waiting on my NFA Tax Stamp for a suppressor I purchased in March. My application is "pending" according to the good folks at the ATF branch HQ, Bridgeport, WV. However, the shop I purchased it from has an indoor range, and allows "jailed" suppressors to be used by their future owners on the premises. So, I screwed it on the end of a 300 BLK pistol I built and spent 30 minutes going through about 60 rounds of subsonic ammunition. What a difference a can makes! The only downside is the gas-in-the-face experience one endures when running a suppressor on any direct-impingement AR type gun.

107 To reinforce what Weasel said about reloading. I've discussed that much of it, depriming, inspecting for flaws, and repriming, I usually do in a comfortable chair. It's just mechanical.

BUT, when it comes to charging the case I pay strict attention. No TV, music or radio. No conversations. Leave me alone! I am a very anti-social powder dispenser. Since I seat the bullet right after charging the case, that's part of the anti-social time.

I have never had a squib load following this process and would like to maintain that record.

128 We then moved to the pistol range where a number of different guns were laid out on a table. We were invited to peruse the offerings and decide what we wanted to shoot. Then something awesome happened. We all got an expert to stand behind us and tutor, counsel, suggest alternatives.

134 I load semi progressively on handgun ammo with a turret press but use a powder checker die to make sure that a powder load drops. Full progressives need a powder cop that stops the press if no powder drops. Rifle rounds loaded in small batches, a flashlight will do to check for powder drop. There are also led lights that mount to the top of some presses so that you get a good view of the insides of cases including powder.

Weasel's words are correct: btw, you should also only have the powder jug that you are using right then to load on your reloading surface and same for primers. I personally write the cartridge type, oal, primer, powder charge in grains, date loaded, and specific bullets either on a sticker label or on some cardboard and foam ammo boxes that you can get online at reloading supply stores.

138 Did get to the range yesterday, trying out my fixed CZ P-07 kadet barrel (I had a squib hammered out after I failed to get it free).

Gun fired just fine, about 140 .22 rounds.

Then fired 50 115gr JHP Fiocci ammo, which was nicely grouped, though the P-07 shots a little low in the 115gr, it prefers the 124 for POA impact.

Great fun.

139 The Texans present at the TxMoMe, in view of his service to the MoMe over the years, and after the appropriate and serious deliberation needed for this momentous instance, voted in Weasel as an Honorary Texan.

Being a Texan, whether native, adopted, or honorary, is not all fun and games. It comes with a number of traditions and responsibilities, one of which is captured in the phrase "One riot, one round". Now, there are, unfortunately, some rounds (*cough* 9mm *cough*that cannot be counted on, however beloved they are by certain misinformed Smart Military Blog commenters. So, to make sure Weasel could meet any immediate need to fulfill said obligation, he was issued a round of .45 ACP.

As he accepted, huzzahs erupted, welcoming Weasel as a fellow Texan.

Well done, and well-deserved, Weasel!

147 TX MoMe Range report, day 1 (posted from the road in Dumas, TX)

Jesse and I started the day with Weasel's excellent mid range shooting class. Of course, it was WAY beyond my ability and understanding at this point, but good to start learning. Neither of us attempted to shoot at the rifle range, though. Then we took Jim SND's awesome intro pistol class and headed to the pistol range. I've taken classes before, but Jim's explanation of sight alignment was especially helpful to me.

I wanted to work with my Sig P365. Lately I've been absolutely awful with it. Both Jim and Eromero (who is perhaps the most patient and levelheaded person I've ever met) gave me very good corrections. Sadly, I'm still terrible, horrible, no good, very bad with this gun, (1 shot of 20 on paper). Everyone else was awesome!

Have to go eat now but will follow up with Day 2 range report later (my shooting experience was somewhat better)

I thought it was way too heavy for me but when I hit a bullseye with the first shot, I was in love. Never would have thought. Changed my whole perspective.

Salute to SatRose, who on Saturday freshened up the firing line a bit with some drills for the ladies with handgun and carbine, both. Finally, a "not worthy" bow towards Nurse Ratched, whom one ought NOT piss off in general, and damn sure not when she's got a 1911 in hand.

Thanks for the thread, as always.
Went to the range today with a neighbor. I was very happy with my shooting at 21 and 30 feet, with my handgun.
Neighbor had a new S&W Compact(IIRC). Sometimes it was not going into battery. I suggested he might be limp wristing it. Neighbor thought I was crazy. Just then the RO came over. Neighbor asked him. And the RO suggested same limp wristing idea. Neighbor acknowledged my gun thread divined knowledge. Made me happy.
Also, we practiced with my Mantis device.

213 Yeah, they're going to try to blame the armorer. But ultimately, that idiot Alec Baldwin pulled the trigger while aiming the gun at someone.

Someone has to go down for this murder, and since Baldwin, the actor, cries real well and can pull off a very convincing show of contrition and remorse, some minion to the flunky is going to get framed with the rap.

Baldwin can afford more justice than anyone else on the set - he'll walk.

I've read that the "armorer" hired was the daughter of none other than Thell Reed, one of the most famous Hollywood gun-handlers of all time. Ages are confusing though, Thell would be easily a decade older than me, and a 24 y/o sounds maybe more "granddaughter"?

Point being, you'd expect the spawn of such as Thell Reed to be much like Jerry Miculeck's daughter, hell on wheels with a gun in her own right. But, granddaughter? SHE might really be a single generation out of the tutelege of the Patriarch, and "once removed" would be enough to break the chain of competency, resulting in what we've now seen in the news.

For all but Baldwin, it seems to be a tragedy. For Baldwin? Far closer to Business as Usual, and more atrocity than tragedy, fwiw.

Then we went to the rifle range and he set up spotting scopes and had us look. He explained WHAT we were seeing as far as haze and mirage and air movement at the target as opposed to where we were standing. Then he stood back and let us figure it out.

Pretty awesome coaching. I learned a LOT.

280 RE: Guns that ceased functioning...dramatically.
I have an FBI(ret) friend with a display case in his living-room, inside is an N-Frame S&W...
it was a Bad guys gun, a bad guy that was shooting at my friend.
Three of the chambers have been fired, in one of those fired chambers is lodged a .45 caliber round....pointed the "wrong way". It is a round HE fired at the bad guy, hit square into a chamber, knocked the gun from the badguys hand, also rendered it "Non-functional"...and rendered the bad guy into custody.
It is a pretty impressive conversation piece. Somewhere I have a phone pic I took of it. Cylinder is bulged, and slightly askew.

282 My carry pistol is a Ruger LCP in .380. I've a Viridian green light set to strobe and come on when drawn from the holster. Fits in my back pocket and prints as if it's a wallet. While it could be considered a "girly-man" caliber, at the distances anticipated it will be just fine. And the wife's Kimber BelAire Micro shares the caliber, so we both get to spend a stupid amount on ammo

One of the other issues with how personal carry is. If your body shape isn't "normal" you have to begin experimenting. The new little doodad they're putting on IWB holsters? That pushes the belt out so the grip cants in to the body (so it prints less)? Yeah, that pushes my belt out so it's no longer really holding my pants up - and that does NOT help concealment.

303 I fluctuate between 3 different guns for concealed carry. A SIG P250 compact in .45, a S&W M&P 2.0 9mm, and a SIG P228 in 9mm. All fit very well in my Crossbreed IWB holster.

I lean more toward the P250 because in spite of the trigger pull being a week long, I hit everything I aim at out to 15 yds which is a distance I'm comfortable with engaging a target with confidence. Also, the stopping power of a JHP 230gr .45 is undeniable.

Legal Insurrection blog has a very good post by Andrew Branca on whether or not Baldwin will face any criminal liability for the shooting.

very short summation - how will the shooting be classified:
accidental? - no liability
negligent? - civil liability (wrongful death suit)
recklessness? - Criminal liability

An actor can be the shooter, also *he* was the asshole who hired the assholes who were assholes.

If only Arec Borwin had told Arec Borwin not to cut corners on hiring gun gaffer toothy mcbigtits to run a set that had already had 3-5 negligent discharges.....

See Arec Borwin is civilly responsible period, and in a sane world criminally as well.

370 My first weapon as a cadet was an M-14.
Damn it was fun. Accurate, easy maintenance, and lets face it, it just looks like a warrior's weapon. My only problem was on my first field exercise and the firing pin broke. I was told that was very unusual. But i carried an extra for the rest of the time we used them and it was replaced by the M-16.

Sigh...

371 Looks like there's a lot of natural beauty in the Page area. Monument Valley is 2 to 2.5 hours away, and there's other national monuments as well, plus a few well-known chain motels that I don't think are outrageously expensive.

Does this appeal to anyone besides me? In the meantime, hmmm. Gonna have to give some serious thought to organizing something for 2022.

I agree with you on civil liability, because he was the producer and ultimately responsible for everyone on that set. For criminal liability, there will probably need to be some testimony that he was screwing around with the gun recklessly, not just trying to film a scene.

I don't care if she's the most unqualified ninny on the planet, the responsibility for the shooting is 99%+ on Alec Baldwin, i.e. the guy who pointed the weapon and puled the trigger.

It's just that if people want to shoot outdoors, it looks like the small city of Page in Arizona, which is 2 hours away from MV, will have to suffice. I looked and can't find anything closer.

409 Day 2 range report! Left the Sig in the car. Jesse broke out the S&W 460. Both Steck and Jesse shot it. Wow. It makes a yuge, luxurious BOOM. I watched them in awe and enjoyed chatting a bit with the amazing Steck.

I put a few rounds through the S&W 1917 Jesse gave me. I haven't shot revolvers much, so it feels awkward to me. But I can make holes in the paper, usually pretty close to where I expect them to be.

Satrose had very cool guns and gave expert coaching to some other ettes.

I was/am overwhelmed meeting (and hugging!) so many interesting and gracious people who mean more to me than I can express. Many many thanks to Ben Had, RancherBob, CowHorseQueen, Weasel, and everybody. The Horde is family.

I have well and truly pondered this. I was advised to do it for wearing suits nowadays. (This was not gun-related, merely getting a suit for a higher level job - that didn't last - and the tailor recommending it.) It would obviate the need for the belt to do the holding up part.

Weasels class taught me although I have shot for 50 plus years, I do not know squat about accurate long distance shooting.
Saturday I took advantage of the open pistol shooting. Shot my model 60, and decided I just don't like it. On the sale/trade pile..
Shot my 422 a bit, SiDs S&W model 1917,and my 460 magnum. Steck was the only person other than me to shoot the 460. I am forever impressed.
All in all a GREAT WEEKEND!!!!
My deepest thanks to every single participant....

Food Thread: Bacon, Books, And Bourbon

thickcut22.jpg

I have been buying thick-cut bacon recently. Why? Because I am a red-blooded American and it is my God-given right!

And I like the texture. Thin bacon is fun when it is crispy; the texture is marvelous! But I think the thick stuff provides more flavor, and I like the chewiness combined with the crispy exterior.

I went a little overboard though; I have 10 pounds of bacon right now. That's a hell of a good feeling.

Unfortunately I do not have a bacon wench to serve it, like at the Texas MoMe, but I'll make due.

Speaking of the MoMe...aside from the food, which was excellent and abundant, I was struck by how nice...how American...the Horde is. It was a true pleasure to see old friends and meet new ones, and it was made possible by our very own Ben Had, who is the consummate hostess and party planner, and Bob and Jennifer, who opened their lovely home and ranch to a bunch of lunatics, literally with open arms!

More anon, but I am getting on a plane, so...enjoy!!

******

Pumpkin Spice is of the devil. It's ubiquitous this time of year, and if anything it seems to be getting more common, if that's even possible. I was poking around the internet a few days ago, looking for interesting cocktails for you maniacs to try, and it was difficult to find seasonal drinks that didn't have pumpkin spice in them. Come on! I get that it makes sense with bourbon or rye, but a coffee and pumpkin spice martini? That's overkill. Or pukeworthy.
******

Fine...here's a simple cocktail for people who love cinnamon, which is the most interesting ingredient in pumpkin spice anyway. I'm not sure I would call it a cinnamon old fashioned, because it really isn't one, but if you need a pumpkin spice fix that isn't redolent of a pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks, give it a try.
******

England is probably lost, but any country that makes Steak pie can't be totally unsalvageable. Besides, They had me at suet puff-pastry crust.
******

It's late October! How the hell did that happen?

And that means before you know it Christmas and Hanukah will be upon us and because the odds of the supply chain miraculously righting itself are long, it's probably time to think about gifts. But not just any gifts...How about cook books? And books about cooking? And books about the chemistry of cooking? And encyclopedias of food?

There may be a trend there...

Anyway, here are two shelves at Dildo Estates with a seemingly random assortment of cook books and such. I have two other shelves of books in other parts of the house, so I might mention something that isn't visible, but everything I will suggest has gotten the Dildo seal of approval. And those links are not to Amazon. In the future I will try to link to places whose corporate culture is not quite so antithetical to everything most of us believe.

CBD Cookbooks1A.jpg

Oooh! Let's start with the Joy of Cooking! It's a great reference for the basics of American cooking, from baking potatoes to pie crusts to boiling a lobster to all sorts of weird stuff you would never consider eating, but will enjoy reading about. The older the edition, the stranger the food.

The Balthazar Cook Book is an absolutely spectacular French Bistro cook book. The directions are clear, the photos are good, and the food is uniformly pleasing.

The Classic Italian Cookbook, by Marcella Hazan is wonderful in every way. She is your aunt with the kind soul and the offbeat demeanor teaching you excellent Italian cooking. Unfortunately it is pricey, but she has several other books that may be less expensive.

Balaboosta says it's Mediterranean cooking, but it really is Israeli -- which means North African and Eastern European and Middle Eastern as well. Why did I buy this cook book? Because I ate at her first take-out joint in the West Village, and it was a revelation.

CBD Cookbooks2A.jpg

Pat Lafrieda is an owner of the eponymous meat packing company that has exploded into a huge and successful high-end butcher that supplies hundreds of restaurants all over the country. And the guy knows Meat. And not just how to choose it, cut it, and age it. The dude can cook too!

Thomas Keller, of French Laundry and Per Se fame has taken a lot of heat in the last several years. His NYC restaurant has faded, in part because of a brutal and probably unfair review by the NYT. But Ad Hoc At Home is still an amazing book for those of you who enjoy meticulous, high-end cooking that has its roots in classical cuisine and technique.

On Food and Cooking: The Science and Lore of the Kitchen is indispensable for geeks (like me) and non-geeks alike. I often pick it up and open it to a random page just because he writes well!

La Cuisine by Raymond Oliver is classic French cooking at its best. It's not necessarily the sort of cook book for everyday, but as a glimpse at why the French are still taken seriously in the world of cooking it is hard to beat, even though it's probably 50 years old. But Oliver was no fan of Nouvelle Cuisine...he liked butter and fat and rich foods, which speaks well of him!

This is as much a lighthearted romp through the minds of some very odd and probably disturbed people, but the recipes in The Deplorable Gourmet are pretty solid stuff. Nothing froufrou mind you, and there is at least one glaring omission...no panda hash! But the recipes are good American cooking in all of its weird glory.

******

I have no idea why this recipe caught my attention. I usually don't eat pastry, and I am not a fan of apples. But for some reason, maybe the appetizing photos, I clicked on it, and it loks like a really good recipe!
big apple crumb cake
So who is going to make it for me?
******

eQgIwwKmjdo


******

Avocados sans thumbprints, beef short ribs that have meat on them (not the stupid little sliver of bone they sneak into the packages), carrots that don't taste like stalky chalk, spare bottles of Van Winkle Special Reserve 12 Year Old Bourbon, an herb garden that actually produces herbs (but no basil!), well-marbled NY strip steaks and elk backstrap to: cbd dot aoshq at gmail dot com.

And don't think that you are off the hook with maple syrup and French Toast: I'm watching you...all of you! And I am watching you perverts who shake Manhattans and keeping a list for the Burning Times.

13 If you enjoy baking Christmas cookies, I highly recommend Rose Levy Berenbaum's Christmas Cookie Cookbook. It is beautiful, with gorgeous pictures of her creations, but even better, the recipes work. They are good, well explained and the end product is sure to bring you compliments and expectations of giant platters of sugary goodness at the next Christmas party. I've made almost everything in the book, except for the gingerbread Notre Dame, and it's all been excellent.

63 ot but too much typing to leave.

2nd biggest pike I ever caught (13+ #) was trying to eat a little walleye that was trying to eat a minnow bottom fished off a little crappie pole on 4#line.
The hook caught in her mouth, the line came out the back behind their floating upper jaw bone thus missing all those teeth.

Took ten minutes to wear her out enough to net.

The big pike are females.

I released her but ate plenty of smaller pike. They smoke, bake, pickle and ceviche well. Just have to cut or eat around the Y bones.

90 The Joy of Cooking has been around for a long time. Sitting in the airport waiting for the flight, I can't check the original publishing date, but I think it was 1931.

If your version is old enough, the bird recipes for pheasant and duck start with illustrations how to clean the freshly killed birds.

Posted by: LeftCoast Dawg at October 24, 2021 03:33 PM (FE2qA)

91 My Joy of Cooking is from the 1950s and has lots of recipes for a pressure cooker, plus it shows you how to skin various types of animals and process them for actual, you know, food. I absolutely love the recipes that call for lard, or suet, or other real foods that we really don't use often enough in "modern" cooking. Plus, it is the basic book mom used, and you can dress up any of the recipes therein and have great success.

After all, how else would you know to drench your turkey stuffing in bacon grease?

Posted by: tcn in AK, Hail to the Thief at October 24, 2021 03:33 PM (qvjMx)

92 I have been buying thick-cut bacon recently. Why? Because I am a red-blooded American and it is my God-given right!

And I like the texture. Thin bacon is fun when it is crispy; the texture is marvelous! But I think the thick stuff provides more flavor, and I like the chewiness combined with the crispy exterior.


That is exactly the way it comes at Kroger from the Butcher's case. Was $5.99 lb before August. No idea now. Closest Kroger is 40 miles away. Used to be 1/2 mile.

Willow-Fishhook Rd for those who want to eyeball it on Googlemap, but there's not much there to look at. Hopefully by then we will have water and electricity, and a better driveway than the sandy mess we encountered trying to put the camper out there last weekend. No house, but we will have an outhouse, at a minimum. If we get enough responses, we will rent a yurt from Talkeetna and set up a nice big camp, and you can always rent a camper or drive your own up. For those who are less adventurous, there are places to stay in Wasilla or Willow or Talkeetna, too. I expect we will take a week off and do it up right. This should be after dipnetting, so there should be plenty of salmon to cook over the fire.

Removed from marinade, placed in a baking dish, sprinkled with a glaze mix*, then baked at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. *Glaze mix is made ahead from 1/2 tsp. dried orange zest, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1 tsp. paprika, and 1 tbsp. brown sugar. The marinade and glaze also work well on boneless pork medallions.

161 The beloved organist is clearing out the house she lived in from the 1950's. She brought me a church cookbook from 1956 by the Ladies Aid Society. Church cookbooks were a big thing back in the day. They were a fundraiser. They have some great recipes in there, but I had to laugh at some. One section was "wild game recipes" and contained things such as "larded grouse" and my personal favorite recipe was wild moose, but it didn't contain any moose-which are not common in N.J. but was mostly sour cream. onions, mushrooms and butter.

I would not go to all that trouble with Pacific salmon, but Atlantic salmon is mostly mushy so that probably would help.

The simplest is to brush the filet with a little olive oil and then slice a lemon really thin and put it over the top of the flesh. You can add pepper or maybe a little garlic (very little) and then flop it on the grill. You can use lemon juice instead of the sliced lemon if that's what you have. Very simple. Lets the flavor of the salmon shine.

Helen Corbitt long ago and faraway used to be the head chef at the downtown Dallas all-fancy Neiman-Marcus back in the early 60s.

My Mom made liberal use of her cookbooks and everything I've tried making has been great.

241 The food at the TXMOME was divine. The pork shoulder they cooked up last night was some of the best I've ever eaten. And the bacon was exquisite.

On my way back from the TXMOME, I stopped at a truck stop and picked up Big Bad Breakfast by John Currence. I haven't read much yet, but my initial impression is he could be an honorary moron...

I was traveling this morning so couldn't jump on the Book Thread. So this is a two-fer...

If I were to cook all of the remaining bacon how long would it last? Assuming it's cooked "as bacon" in strips.

289 So this sort of about cooking.

Even though we live in the south, Mrs VIA decided to make Matzo Ball soup yesterday.

So off we went to find the ever present boxes of soup and matzo ball mix that one finds everywhere in the northeast.

First was the local Food Lion. Not only nothing to be found, but the poor cashier didn't even know what Kosher was, when Mrs VIA was trying to ask if maybe the store had a Kosher section.

So off to Publix, where the word 'Kosher' was a foreign sounding word to the staff there too.

BUT...it turned out that there was a small overlooked section, and there it was. Two boxes of the soup mix. Made up with the hand picked meat from the rotisserie chicken from BJ's the day before, and a meal to die for.

316 Speaking of cook books. My MIL, who apparently couldn't boil water, was given one as a wedding gift from her MIL. It was the "Wise Encyclopedia of Cookery". It doesn't quite describe how to hunt rabbit or squirrel or deer but it does tell how to clean them for cooking. It has plenty of useful recipes that don't involve a gut pile so I don't know if it was meant as a joke. (It also assumes my FIL could hunt. He couldn't hit a barn from the inside with a 12 gauge.)

My MIL was an excellent cake baker and decorator. But she made the thinnest, most bland pasta sauce in human experience.

Half size cooks a bit faster. Last time, I trimmed the top more, and made my wife the bits she likes to cook with (green beans, e.g.). The strips are maybe 1/2" shorter than store bought, but still fit on the cookie sheet well.
We freeze what fits on a cookie sheet, which, medium sliced, is about 12oz.
We do over cook the bacon (quantity) I guess, but we are only paying about $4/#, so it's a minor indulgence.

331 Rusty Nail... tried it all. Oven is the easiest, and most dependable, and just as fast, besides being hands off.
Aluminum foil on the cookie sheet. Bacon not overlapped, but can touch.
Set the oven to 400 and put the bacon in. When it comes to temp, set the timer to 6 minutes (if full size, 4 if half sized) and check it.
Wife likes hers 8 minutes, I like mine about 6.

Times and temps may vary, but one thing is for certain, there is no reason to make bacon in any other fashion than baking it in the oven.

The only other method I can condone stems from my restaurant kitchen experience, which would be throwing it in the deep fat fryer to get it done in a hurry.

Last time I looked at the price, Aldi's thick bacon, either Applewood or smoked was $4.99/ pound, which yielded 12 thick succulent slices. We tend to cook them to 90% of done, then shrink wrap and freeze about three slices per package.

Thawed, then wrapped around sea scallops, at 350 degrees for half an hour is perfection for both. Or quickly pan-fried for a couple of minutes before scrambled eggs, perfection. Or nuked in the microwave for a BLT, perfect.

But Aldi's is a secret best not revealed to the left.

I have threatened the last two years to come. Alas, work has been insane. October is the culmination of wedding season, and this year we added to it providing bartenders for the UT Knoxville skyboxes and bartenders for a series of concerts in October in Knoxville.

I've had 25+ bartenders out on jobs every weekend this October, and some weeks upwards of 40.

I put the leftovers on a plate, heated it up and brought it to him and he said "Mom, can you say a prayer? " We always pray before our family meals, but I thought it was nice he wanted to do that since he was the only one eating. Still, I don't know why I have to be the designated pray-er.

I think it's a toss up which was better: the carne asovada or the pazole. Both used similar ingredients and seasonings, but both also had subtle complexities to make them very distinct.

They are doing great. Yes, thankfully they survived. Luckily they were able to put tables and chairs under canopies and they decorated with plants, etc. That was last year. They might still have that, I didn't even pay attention, but we were indoors. It was every bit as good as ever.

That would be great! Has to be a wood fire. A large piece of metal and the burlap the oysters come in are all that is necessary. We're hosting our annual roast here again in January.

If any morons are interested in attending, let me know. It's yuge and luxurious. Bigly.

411 The food was great, particularly the corn dish and eggplant dish. And the pig was p-p-p-perfect! Years ago at the MudMoMe they gave away kittens as door prizes, and we shot air rifles. Now look how big it is. I sat next to Bob last night and mentioned 'a skunk passed through, did you smell him?' Bob just smiled and said 'yeah they have rabies.' Can't wait til next year.

412 Bitter Clinger, the NoVaMoMes are never in October, you know. And we are just one state over. Just sayin'.

.....

Yes, I had those intentions this year as well.

I've never visited Washington D.C., nor has Little.

I thought it might make a decent combined trip, but I pretty much figured D.C. was under some kind of mask mandate this year and as documented, I'm certifiably maskaphobic and figured we wouldn't be able to visit the museums and such.

By next year they will probably make me show the vaccine card I don't have.

415 Ben Had was one of the first person to greet me when I arrived. She immediately gave me a hug even though we'd never met. Texas hospitality personified.

Rancher Bob and Jennifer were also the most gracious hosts.

Kudos to everyone who planned this event, carried it out, and attended.

But, there's lots of great stuff in Virginia, particularly along your way up on 81. Even though most people mask up here, there's no requirement in stores or restaurants and no one says a word to my maskless self. Down in the southern part of VA, you don't see many masks at all.

We have a spot on the Wilmington River (off the Savannah River) here. Husband and a couple of buddies start in the early afternoon building a hot fire (sometimes with pecan wood), and the washed oysters go on a large piece of metal on top of the hot fire, are covered with wet burlap until they "know" the oysters are done. We have lots of tables set up with condiments and buckets for the oyster shells. The shells are carried to a local place that cleans them and puts them back on the oyster beds. A good roast with lots of people lasts for hours. Glorious. We also set up a full bar and there are lots of things for the non-oyster lovers to enjoy. Last year we had about eighty people.

3. Add in shredded truffle gouda and cheddar because hey
4. Bake at 400 for an hour

The secret to this recipe is that the cheese sauce is a year past its "best if by" date, so it has that extra tang.

One of the nice things about the MoMe that I really enjoy is meeting the fellow denizens and then seeing their comments and actually knowing who they are. When I met Mr. B and his brother last year, I was like "who the heck are YOU?" But now I know and every time I see a comment from Mr. B or Ladyl or Tom Servo or Jewells or any one of the other people that I only really became aware of when I met them face to face, it's like I really am part of this community. Sort of.

As far as food goes, I'm enjoying some linquine with sauce from a jar (yeah, I know) and some ice cream I made myself in my new ice cream maker, that I got because I was inspired by the folks here. Imagine that.

Odds & Ends

Normally my esteemed colleague CBD is filling this time slot with his First World Problems thread. He invited me to sit in for him this afternoon.

Rumor is, he is in Texas attempting to show Texans how New Jerseyians cook. I don't think that Sous Vide will be winning any chili cook-offs down there.


So it's Sunday afternoon, what are you up to? I must confess I was a Footballaholoic. I would watch at least 2 NFL games on Sunday and more than likely the Monday Night Football game.

Living in rural Wisconsin I dropped my satellite coverage when the prices jumped considerably after our first contract expired. This all came about the time the NFL started their Woke Journey.

I've sold my Green Bay Packers season tickets the past two years and made a profit. I've watched only one NFL game in the past 2 years. (I was stuck in a hotel in October 2020 on a Monday night)

So have you given up the NFL? What have you been doing with your free time? I've allocated that football time to more constructive projects such as my hobbies and spending more time outdoors with projects.


***

One of the things I'm not doing on Sunday is checking out Porn Hub. Is doesn't matter that it would legitimate while learning Calculus.

It's safe to assume that few Pornhub visitors are looking for hour-long calculus videos (by a fully-clothed instructor), but Taiwanese math teacher Changhsu puts them there anyway. His channel is filled with over 200 decidedly unsexy chalkboard lessons about topics like differential equations (link NSFW). The 34-year-old math tutor found the YouTube market for math explainers to be saturated, so he decided to expand his reach into Pornhub (link NSFW). He told Mel Magazine that he wants to reach a new market of mathematics learners.

***


Those of you who follow The ONT Sunday - Wednesday know I enjoy photography and the beauty of nature. Check out these spectacular shots!


***


And finally............What lengths would you go to to change your appearance for no less your driver's license?

Everyone I know hates going to the DMV. There is nothing worse than sitting in an extremely large room with a bunch of strangers, loud kids, and people coughing and sneezing all over the place. Plus there is always the dreaded driver license photo. It never looks great. You always look a lot heavier than you actually are, or at least heavier than the weight you put on your driver’s license. It’s just an all around terrible experience in most cases. Well this Reddit user wanted to become the ultimate redneck for his driver’s license. I mean who wouldn’t really, but you have to take a look at this insane transformation.

It was time to get started on the most epic driver’s license picture ever.

9 I can't say I am more productive since we stopped watching the NFL. I was always a fickle viewer, and did stuff outside sometimes if the weather was nice. Dad shifted to watching old westerns and I shifted to more time on the internet for the most part.

29 "Up Against the Wall Redneck Mothers" is a song I first heard on a CD compilation titled Outlaw Country that I found at Half Price Books.

It's quite possible to do so, but CPT Charles doesn't want rabbit ears on his video wall screen, and I don't have obsolete CRT tech anymore. But it's my fate that right after I told the NFL where to go, the Bengals suddenly have a decent team.

Yes. This is not a song to listen to in quiet contemplation. It requires volume, both sound and hair (Aqua-net is your friend here, ladies) and preferably a can of Lone Star or Shiner Bock in one's hand. Coor's light if you can't find the other two. Boots and tight jeans shuffling on the dance floor can and will complete the atmosphere, but are not necessary.

63 Sadly, I haven't watched my beloved New England Patriots since Tom Brady left. Partly because they're rebuilding. But also because they're complicit in the deaths of hundreds if not thousands of mainly black men, women, and children. The Patriots/NFL support Black Lives Matter. Black Lives Matter supports Defund the Police and ACAB (All Cops Are Bad). The subsequent demoralization, demonization, and defunding of our law enforcement with no reasonable alternative has caused crime and murder rates to go through the roof in large cities and especially among black people. Even the media has largely stopped reporting on BLM due to its toxicity.

76 I've pretty much dropped all sports. I used to watch a lot of baseball, but don't anymore since they went woke. Now I'm using that time for reading and other projects around the house. I'd check scores at work as well and that's saved me 5 mins every work day. It's definitely a win in my life!

This is a very disturbing thing I actually stumbled upon many years ago. An article titled 'Worst Jobs to have.' One of them was 'Medical Testing of Beagles'.

91 Adding to the Tappan Zee Bridge story in previous thread...

A reasonable person would ask why the bridge was originally constructed in one of the wider areas of the river with a muddy bed when it could have been built a little more downstream where it is narrower and on solid rock..

The Governor at that time wanted the bridge to fund his dream to build a limited access highway. Putting the bridge in to where engineers said it should go (2 tens of a mile) would put it into the Port Authority's jurisdiction (25 mile radius out from the central point of the Statue of Liberty) and the Port Authority would receive the revenue.

The replacement bridge was not relocated because the towns and highways grew up around the original bridge.

On Saturday, the tweet was taken down, with the following message: "This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules."

109 The latest scandal in woke sportsball comes, of course, from Portland.

The GM of both the men's and women's soccer teams stands accused of making comments about the sexual orientation of several women soccer players (shocker!) and amazingly, actually found a couple of heterosexual female soccer players to have consensual affairs with.

This was completely unacceptable, of course, but the owner of both teams removed the guy from being the GM of the women's team, but kept him as the GM of the men's team.

This completely engaged woke Portlanders, who are boycotting the concession stands at both the men and women's soccer games to force the owner to fire the Bad Man from the men's team, too.

The joke, of course, is that Portland has the only successful professional women's soccer team - pre-pandemic, it drew about 20,000 fans a game, while the rest of the league is lucky to draw 5,000. This is the third attempt at a professional women's soccer league in the United States - the first two went bankrupt, and it would be hilarious if this boycott pushed the current professional women's soccer league over the edge.

Banks stood by his comments and criticized the social media platform in a statement to IndyStar.

"My tweet was a statement of fact," he stated. "Big Tech doesn't have to agree with me, but they shouldn't be able to cancel me. If they silence me, they will silence you. We can't allow Big Tech to prevent us from telling the truth. When Republicans take back the House next year, we must restore honesty to our public forums and hold Big Tech accountable."

His second tweet targeting Levine remains online.

I've also wondered how the hell professional women's soccer has managed to keep the transgenders out.

Considering that even a mediocre men's college soccer player would automatically become the superstar of the women's league, it's curious that no one has decided to "transition" over to women's soccer.

If the Portland women's soccer team is blocking transgenders from playing, they are violating Oregon state law.

165 I think I have seen maybe all of two minutes of football of any kind over the past two years, because of all the woke crap. (I still think the NFL team in Washington needs to change its name to the Red Guards - for a logo, maybe a silhouette image of The Helmsman himself?) I had a lot of fun with football but when the diversion I have from more serious issues in life becomes infested with them the escapist value is gone so therefore I don't participate anymore. (The same is true of the NBA. It's all depressing but I NEED to walk away from it all. I have many avenues that I can go into so sports wasn't required by any means; its absence now means those different avenues can be explored further.)

194 Alec Baldwin may be trying to hang responsibility for the killing on his "armorer", this weird chick he hired to take care of the guns on set. But that falls apart too, when you consider he hired her. He was responsible for her actions, professionally speaking, as he is the producer (in addition to being the perpetrator). None of this evasion works, ultimately, given his various responsibilities.

The poor woman died as a result of his negligence, professional and personal. And there's no escaping those facts.

Some might consider this odd when paired with their egalitarian view on homosexuality (as long as you were the dominant partner- which is where Elagabalus fucked up. Not too many legionnaires want to hang around with and fight for a kid who likes to refer to himself as so and so's 'Queen'.)

231 The NFL was crappy long before they got woke. 45-60 min added to each game over the years

Yeah, the politics was the straw that broke the camel's back for me. But I was already disgruntled. The expanded amount of time it took to play a game, being so-hungry for commercial dollars that they'd come back from commercial and you'd obviously missed plays, and the increasing criminality of a subset of the players . . . made it easy to walk away from. And I had watched a lot of football. There are other things to do though.

The town of Memphis, Texas claims to be the Peanut Capital of Texas, though I believe they planted Spanish peanuts and not the Florida or Virginia Runners we South Carolina natives are accustomed to. Regardless they ain't nary a peanut planted that I know of in ETEX. I quit planting them 3 years ago. May plant some next year..

So at the moment I'm indulging the only handicraft he doesn't interfere too much with, which is making rosaries (also a personal devotion, which makes it really nice.) Spinning, knitting, and crocheting are on indefinite hold.

Buffalo may elect the first openly socialist mayor of a major U.S. city in a generation.

India Walton, a millennial community organizer in the mold of lunatic U.S. Rep. Cori Bush, won the Democrat primary this summer, where only 10 percent of voters turned out, upsetting the multi-term incumbent Mayor Byron Brown.

We only get CBS here and I have watched a few games this season. I find great joy when the Steelers lose. Sorry. I watched to see if Dallas was really good. They're not.

343 With regard to football, I stopped watching (actually, listening, since I don't watch television) about ten years ago, after Dave Duerson, the strong safety for the 1985 Bears, killed himself over his deteriorating mental condition, a result of the repeated concussions he suffered during his career. Yes, I realize that it's a violent game - just ask Darryl Stingley; and yes, I realize that the players walk into that arena with their eyes open. Still, once I started seeing what it does to the men who play it, the game ceased to be fun for me. The whole woke-NFL thing was, for me, just the cherry on the sundae.

344 Jake Tapper is apparently going around "tone policing" anyone who thinks Baldwin has even a smidgen of responsibility here...if this had been a Trump production, and Trump had killed someone in his production, Jake would be suggesting a lamp post and rope necktie for the Donald and he knows it.

Jake can fake the gravitas look all he wants, but he fully knows that the executive producer (Baldwin in this incident) is the CEO of any production and is liable for the work product, including the hiring and firing of personnel, and the safety of the work needed to produce it. Baldwin can't escape that, and everyone knows it.

The Tappan Zee Bridge

polsnames.jpg

I know this isn't the most pressing problem plaguing America. But it is one of the most obvious and most galling. From post offices and office buildings to train stations and bridges and tunnels; most publicly funded construction eventually gets named for some politician whose claim to fame might be negligent homicide of a young woman (Ted Kennedy), or just a scummy mobbed-up machine politician (Mario Cuomo) whose soon-to-be disgraced son strong-armed NY into naming the new Tappan Zee Bridge after his father.

It's one more indication of their inflated sense of their own worth and the contempt with which they hold the rest of us. The Tappan Zee Bridge should be named after a great New York figure...perhaps a brave soldier or a great scientist or maybe even just leave it the way it was.

But the conceit that elected representatives have some right to have their names emblazoned on buildings and bridges is disgusting, and one that should end.

24 I submit that these projects (invariably named for Democrats, unless it's a wastewater treatment plant or garbage dump) be renamed. It celebrates whiteness. All of them should be renamed after BIPOC. For instance, Robert Byrd's name is on every structure in WV. They should replace it with George Floyd. George Floyd deserves his own state. This Cuomo Bridge should be named for Tawana Brawley. Anything with Kennedy on it should be changed to Kendi. I'm sure Dems will be fine with that. Because equity.

Right, all structures, streets or monuments named after those WASPy founders must be renamed, if not demolished. If renamed, they will find some trans or gay figure whose claim to fame is "enduring the hate from traditional white America".

Or maybe the entitles ones decide members of the current Junta deserve to have their name emblazoned down the side of the (formerly known as) Washington Monument ... which will now be painted in glorious rainbow colors.

38 You have to hand it to Robert Byrd tho'. He transplanted 10's of thousands of D.C. employees in West Virginia thus weeded out some of the rot in the capitol city.

58 I think that naming buildings, roads, ships, and any other Federal projects that might have a person's name should be restricted to being named for decorated soldiers.

It'd be a good way to show support for the military, and to educate future generations about heroes past.

If those soldiers later became politicians? Fine. But no naming for politicians otherwise.

93 A point of confusion I have had regarding the Baldwin shooting is what exactly is meant by a "live round" term used by the reporters. This TMZ story clears that mystery up. The gun used by Baldwin was also being used by the crew for target practice when not working on the film. So, live in this case is a gun loaded with a cartridge that had a lead bullet on the pointy end. Oh, boy, this story just keeps getting worse.

146 "Multiple sources directly connected to the 'Rust' production tell TMZ ... the same gun Alec Baldwin accidentally fired -- hitting the DP and director -- was being used by crews members off set as well, for what we're told amounted to target practice."

So they claim Baldwin fired it accidentally ... so, it must not have been part of acting during a scene ... he pointed it at her and fired ... for no good reason.

Most likely he did not know it was loaded "hot", or maybe he wanted to know what it felt like to murder, and had his crying act planned out. ... seems outlandish .. but crazy ego driven Hollywood jerks might be looking for some "new thrill". In any case, he broke protocol and fired at (and killed) a person, so negligent homicide charge is in order, I'd guess.

Obama was in some ways like Biden for his first few months at least. Questions were scripted and his responses were on teleprompters. Later he learned the script well enough to answer questions on his own .. but that is not so hard when there is one leftist cult set of beliefs that fit every saturation.

Most likely he did not know it was loaded "hot", or maybe he wanted to know what it felt like to murder, and had his crying act planned out. ... seems outlandish .. but crazy ego driven Hollywood jerks might be looking for some "new thrill". In any case, he broke protocol and fired at (and killed) a person, so negligent homicide charge is in order, I'd guess.

I went to Dallas a few weeks ago. While there I visited Dealy Plaza. Somebody painted white 'X's on the street where Kennedy got shot. I was shocked by how many people run out into the middle of the street where they stand on a 'X', raise their arms in the air for a picture. One guy even sat on an 'X' where he had somebody interview him while on camera thus snarling up traffic for five or so minutes. It was a miracle he didn't get run over.

199 The PJ Media article says there was one, or maybe two accidental discharges before this fatal one. (I'm pretty sure they mean live round discharges). And people walked off the set because of safety issues.

They also note that if someone hired this unqualified girl (girlfriend/relative/whatever) they also are perhaps criminally negligent. ... Several of the crew had walked off because of safety, so the issue was clearly not dealt with ... which is negligence up the chain from the girl.

To me, Baldwin is in the crosshairs, since he deliberately aimed and fired ... apparently not acting, just "for fun". Plus he was in charge of making things safe -- instead he brought in a new crew that didn't care about the safety issues.

I do believe SNL and Mr Baldwin are hateful enough to go there.

Insanely stupid to have crew shooting the set weapon with live loads. Or even a duplicate weapon and having live ammo that fit the movie Colt on the production set. But of course leftists are arrogant enough to think they don't need to follow safety rules established by cis white men who were probably even icky conservatives.

252 Baldwin's a celebrity Dem in good standing. There will be no jail. As to the civil liability, the production company's insurer will pay for that.

All this will mean for Baldwin the man is that future investment in movies may have to be as a silent partner, without his name in the credits. And this is likely to be his last role involving a gun.

This happened in Santa Fe County, which like the City of Santa Fe, is so far left Marxists feel uncomfortable there. Baldwin walks with a case of martinis and marksmanship medal. His crew will spend 30 years in the New Mexico State Pen which is just down the road from Santa Fe while Halyna Hutchins, the woman Baldwin killed, estate will get billed for the police overtime.

264 Let's not get too crazy about the killer's gun being used for off-set target practice.

A. This is almost certainly a story being floated by Baldwin's PR hacks to TMZ to give him cover. Maybe true, maybe not.

B. If you're an experienced shooter and you take a weapon to the range, do you not clear it and even clean it when you're done? If you handed that gun to a friend, you'd check that it was clear. What are the chances that they'd be able to just shoot you with it? If you know what you're doing, that chance should be slim.

Did DC have BLM riots? I wasn't here then.

I am just saying, the people in this area seem untouched by what impacts everyone else. Also, I continue surprising people here in DC with this amazing fact:

No one is masking in SC. Many restaurants aren't requiring employees to mask. The citizenry here has no idea. You can even drive about 45 minutes into Virginia and a noticeable number of walmart customers are not masked.

The bubble here is amazing.

It's the lack of seriousness that's being mentioned, though. However, it was also noted that several crew members had walked off the set a couple of days prior to the shooting. Apparently there had already been two gun safety incidents and people off-camera were getting nervous. I'm 100% certain nothing like this happened on the set of a John Wayne or Clint Eastwood movie.

Yes, I agree. However, how the inexperienced crew acted prior, or dressed or acted on the internet should not be an excuse whether they were male or female.

It helps exonerate Baldwin of the actual act of failing to be responsible with a firearm, AND, let's not forget that he has been involved in at least 11 movies prior that required firearm training, she was not.

So, Baldwin has even more to answer for than an inexperienced 24yo prop handler.

Baldwin may not have murdered a woman, but, he did kill her. He did. No one else pulled the trigger.

274 CBD--regarding the content: I've been saying the same thing for years now. After living in Illinois where nearly every road or bridge is named after a forgotten politician and where everyone knows who the secretary of state is because he caused his name to be placed on every DMV office accross the state. . . it got tiresome quickly.

In my version of Republic 2.0, I forbid politicians from aggrandizing themselves. No public edifice or weapons system may be named after a politician until 30 years after their death, and then only by 90% majority vote of the legislature and this must be a sole-topic vote--no attaching this as a rider.

275 On a less frivolous note wrt to the Rust camera gal getting killed. This points to big problem. You can have redundant safety procedures or stringent laws limiting who can own a handgun and they are useless when enforcement is not applied to everybody all the time.

I doubt a single gang killing in Shitcago was done with a legally owned weapon. Alec Baldwin as producer was not shut down from filming in spite of two previous negligent discharges on set.

The caravan immediately ran into a Mexican National Guard roadblock but appeared to break through, images on social media show. The images show a throng of people making their way past soldiers in riot gear and with plastic shields, yelling, "Libertad! Libertad! (Freedom! Freedom!)"

After pushing dozens of soldiers aside, the migrants could be seen walking in jubilation on their journey north. The soldiers made no attempt to pursue them or draw weapons.

Sunday Morning Book Thread 10-24-2021

wells cathedral library smaller 02.jpg
Wells Cathedral Library, Somerset, UK


Good morning to all you 'rons, 'ettes, lurkers, and lurkettes, wine moms, frat bros, the vaxxed, the unvaxxed, the super-vaxxed, the Karens who triple-mask, and all you crétins sans pantalon (who are technically breaking the rules). Welcome once again to the stately, prestigious, internationally acclaimed and high-class Sunday Morning Book Thread, a weekly compendium of reviews, observations, snark, witty repartee, hilarious bon mots, and a continuing conversation on books, reading, spending way too much money on books, writing books, and publishing books by escaped oafs and oafettes who follow words with their fingers and whose lips move as they read. Unlike other AoSHQ comment threads, the Sunday Morning Book Thread is so hoity-toity, pants are required. Even if it's these pants, which make it plain that every girl's crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man.



Pic Note:

This is an example of what is known as a "chained" library:

The Chained Library at Wells Cathedral houses books published before 1800. These were collected by the canons in the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries and reflects their wide-ranging intellectual interests. The core of the collection of some 2,800 volumes is theology, but science, medicine, history, exploration and languages are also well-represented. There are some good examples of manuscript books but the medieval contents of the Library were lost at the time of the Reformation.

The strength of the collection is in printed books, the earliest being a Pliny Naturalis Historiae printed in Venice in 1472 by Nicholas Jenson. Other early books include Vesalius’ De Humanis Corporis Fabrica of 1555, which is the book of anatomy that heralded the advent of biology as a subject, and the earliest complete atlas of the world by Abraham Ortelius which was first published in English in 1606. The set of Aristotle’s works published in Venice in 1497 belonged to Erasmus and has his signature and annotations.

Who knew monasteries had problems with ne'er-do-wells walking off with their books?

YA Literature: A World Drunk on Woke

We all know that YA lit is descending into madness, since the woke zombie virus has thoroughly corrupted brick-and-mortar publishing, where checking off all of the au courant woke taking points is prioritized higher than good storytelling and compelling characters.

But how bad is it really getting? This bad:

Recently, I perused three emails from bookstores offering children’s book recommendations from a...program organized by the American Booksellers Association (ABA). Amid 93 new books, all published since May, I couldn’t find one that would appeal to my boys. The choices included a “feel-good contemporary romance” about a young trans athlete fighting against a “discriminatory law targeting trans athletes”; a book about a young lesbian with pansexual and nonbinary friends who denounced her white privilege; a “queer coming of age story” about a young lesbian who joins the boy’s football team; a young-adult novel about genderfluidity by a non-binary writer who is the mother of a transgender child; a “tale of self-discovery” about a bisexual love triangle; a book about a transgender witch named Wyatt; and a “fabulously joyful” novel about “drag, prom, and embracing your inner queen” that featured “a fat, openly gay boy stuck in a small West Texas town.” Other titles included the tale of a Puerto Rican eighth-grader who “navigates . . . the systemic pressures of toxic masculinity and housing insecurity in a rapidly gentrifying Brooklyn”; a young-adult thriller with a bisexual protagonist that explores the “politics of systemic racism”; and Don’t Hate the Player, a novel about gamers I thought would appeal to the boys until I realized it was about a young feminist battling misogyny from the “male-dominated gaming community.”

Also:

A host of new children’s books available on Amazon appeals to the same set. These included a new release for 8–12-year-olds about a young Muslim living in a xenophobic town in Texas where “hostile” townspeople protest the construction of a new mosque; a “swoony” gay pirate adventure story heralded by NPR; a queer ghost story featuring a bisexual teenage paranormal podcaster; and a polemic for 7–12 year-olds called Palm Trees at the North Pole: the Hot Truth About Climate Change.

I didn't copy across all of the links embedded in these paragraphs, but you can see them for yourself in the original text. I have nothing much to say about this degredation, but I am always looking for alteratives, and one of the commenters had a couple of suggestions. The first is Black Ships Before Troy: The Story of 'The Iliad' by Rosemary Sutcliff:

As the gods and goddesses of Olympus scheme, the ancient world is thrown into turmoil when Helen, the most beautiful woman in all of Greece, is stolen away by her Trojan love. Inflamed by jealousy, the Greek king seeks lethal vengeance and sends his black war ships to descend on the city of Troy.

In the siege that follows, history’s greatest heroes, from Ajax to Achilles to Odysseus, are forged in combat, and the brutal costs of passion, pride, and revenge must be paid. In the end, the whims of the gods, the cunning of the warriors, and a great wooden horse will decide who emerges victorious.

This retelling of 'The Iliad', suitable for middle-schoolers and above, is available in paperback for $7.99. And don't miss the companion volume, The Wanderings of Odysseus: The Story of the Odyssey:

King Odysseus and the Greeks have triumphed over the Trojans. At long last, they are able to set sail for home and the loving family Odysseus left behind. But for the heroic king, the return voyage holds hazards far greater than any he faced during the war.

Forced by treacherous winds into unknown seas, Odysseus and his crew must face deadly perils: the flesh-eating Cyclops, Circe and her deadly enchantments, and the soul-chilling Land of the Dead and more.

For good storytelling, there's nothing like the classics.

Moron Recommendations

Lots of bashing of San Francisco in the thread last week. NTTAWWT:

323 The whole city is to be strenuously avoided. But I'll guarantee the independent bookshops of SF are all run by the worst kind of Californians.
Posted by: The Rt. Rev. Yudhishthira's Dice

Which leads me to another Moron-recommended read, 'When the Wicked Seize a City', McIlheny, et al

Posted by: Mike Hammer, etc., etc. at October 17, 2021 10:49 AM (WD9ZA)

Wow. I'm surprised that When the Wicked Seize a City is still, apparently, in print. And also that Amazon still carries it. I don't know why it's not on Amazon's 'no-no' list; perhaps it just slipped through the cracks. Anyway, The book was first published in 1993. It used to be available to be read for free online, but I forget the site, and I expect it's gone now. That's where I first read it, in the late 90s.

The book is written by the pastor of a conservative Presbyterian church in San Francisco who, in the late 70s or early 80s, hired a pianist/organist to do the church's music. It came out that this individual was a homosexual, which behavior is not according to the standards of the church, so he was fired. This triggered lawsuits, harassment, threats, vandalism and, get this, during one "protest" when they tried to damage or destroy the church, the police stood around like potted plants, citing the 1st Amendment as their reason for, well, standing around like potted plants.

(Although, to be fair, the police stood up and did their jobs during a subsequent "mostly peaceful but fiery" protest against the church.)

And the church had to fight a battle on two fronts, the obvious one against organized pro-homosexual groups, and, surprisingly, another one against their own denomination. Not because they were liberal, far from it, but rather because they had no idea what the San Francisco church was facing (remember, gay agitation had not reached the level of cultural saturation) and took refuge behind a fossilized bureaucracy to excuse their inaction.

I think this book is interesting as an historical document which provides a snapshot into the time when the homosexual movement had first grown strong enough to employ force rather than mere persuasion to implement their political agenda. The author's naïve incredulity, "it's hard to believe they're actually doing this stuff" is almost quaint.

158 thank you for the recs last time of In This House of Brede by Rumer Godden. The library was able to get one battered copy.

I loved it. The old-fashioned style of narration enhanced the story, imo.

Posted by: vmom stabby stabby stabby stabamillion (oEn12) at September 12, 2021 09:00 AM (oEn12)

Pax is the motto of Brede Abbey. Yet its peace is the peace of God—“not,” as Godden brings to her readers’ notice, “the world’s peace.” The walls of Brede witness life of unceasing work and prayer, little creature comfort, persistent disappointment and misunderstanding—yet a life of peace all the same, unswervingly joyful and loving. Into this life enters Philippa Talbot, ambitious, independent, successful, forsaking her beautifully arranged career in the world for a vocation of complete self-gift to God. A milestone in Catholic literature, In This House of Brede is fiction of the highest caliber: no saccharine, simpering imitation of life, but a wholehearted, unreserved reflection of reality in its awful fullness.

This sounds pretty intense. Conflict under a veneer of calm.

The Kindle edition is $10.99.

___________

551 A rather old book at this point, but I recently began reading "The New Dealers' War" by Thomas Fleming, from 2001.

Calling it "brutal" in how it treats FDR is an understatement. By 3 chapters in Fleming makes FDR look significantly more conniving than Obama, and so barely more competent that Biden.

Compounding that are the number of parallels in socialist economic policy and military incompetence of the administration to those currently being demonstrated.

Posted by: Sam at September 12, 2021 05:31 PM (ohyxL)

Fleming has the reputation of being somewhat of a revisionist historian. In this case, he does not bow the knee to Roosevelt sufficiently enough:

Acclaimed historian Thomas Fleming brings to life the flawed and troubled FDR who struggled to manage WWII. Starting with the leak to the press of Roosevelt's famous Rainbow Plan, then spiraling back to FDR's inept prewar diplomacy with Japan, and his various attempts to lure Japan into an attack on the U.S. Fleet in the Pacific, Fleming takes the reader inside the incredibly fractious struggles and debates that went on in Washington, the nation, and the world as the New Dealers, led by FDR, strove to impose their will on the conduct of the War. Unlike the familiar yet idealized FDR of Doris Kearns Goodwin's No Ordinary Time, the reader encounters a Roosevelt in remorseless decline, battered by ideological forces and primitive hatreds which he could not handle-and frequently failed to understand-some of them leading to unimaginable catastrophe.

Yes, from this description, it does make FDR look like a doofus. NTTAWWT. The Kindle edition is a whopping $16.99.

Books By Morons

'Ette author Lisa Mathisen has released vol. 12 of her 'Glimpse' series of short stories, Souldier, and this collection has distinctly Christian theme:

Souldier vol. 12 of The Glimpse Series - Imagined Scenes from Imagined Lives, is a collection of Bible-inspired fiction. Each story was inspired by a specific verse and makes no apologies for unabashed faith in Christ. Some stories delve deeper into Biblical scenes, speculating what may have happened to the characters. Others are mixed-genre journeys into Christian drama or science fiction, all biblically inspired.

Lisa tells me:

This is not your typical Christian fiction...I mix Christian themes with science fiction, horror, satire, and whatever else I find laying around. Who says Bible-based fiction has to be boring when the Bible is anything but?

Also:

You will find that I have gotten into micro-stories with many of the chapters 300 words or less and many 100 word stories

I've read most of Lisa's previous books and her short-short stories are like tasty little snacks, literary hors d'oeuvres, if you will.

Oh, and I almost forgot the 11th Glimpse book, Tales of WHOA, which the Amazon blurb touts as:

...a thought-provoking collection of surprisingly twisted tales. By injecting shock into drama and humor into the macabre, flash fiction rebel Mathisen takes the reader on wild rides that leave us breathless and thoroughly entertained, sometimes using only 100 words...Glimpse vol. 11 is a fun, easy read that’s sure to delight every short story aficionado.

To which Lisa adds:

These are very timely stories written from a conservative viewpoint. Readers may find more than a few cathartic moments here.

The Kindle editions of WHOA and Souldier are both $2.99.

As always, book thread tips, suggestions, bribes, insults, threats, ugly pants pics and moron library submissions may be sent to OregonMuse, Proprietor, AoSHQ Book Thread, at the book thread e-mail address: aoshqbookthread, followed by the 'at' sign, and then 'G' mail, and then dot cee oh emm.

I held a small book signing at a local coffee shop yesterday. This was my first public event as an author, so I had no idea what to expect. The crowd wound up being pretty steady.

11 Back to the Shelley and Godwin families and I ordered a copies of Wollstonecraft's letters, as the ones from her trip to Scandinavia were so beautifully written and interesting. Godwin said he fell in love with her due to these letters (originally written to another man) and it seems clear he fell for a thoughtful writer and it was a "marriage of true minds".

After the discussion of including the names of real life characters in a story as a means of 'revenge writing' I re-wrote the last very short chapter of my book, which has a surprise ending. Is hair falling out in clumps, Parkinson's, numerous incontinent cats, and arthritis too over the top?

To me, it hit just the right chord.

20 Slow book morning. Here something willowed that's Book Thread Adjacent:

Saw DUNE last night -

I liked it but didn't love it. Basically, it hit all the same scenes as David Lynch's version only at a lower key and a slower pace and ended at roughly the midpoint of that movie.

The 1984 version explained much better what Spice was and why it was important by "showing" us how it changes everything around it. In 2021, Spice ism mentioned vaguely once, and somehow uses giant elongated urinals as Star Gates.

Most of the duplicated scenes were done better in the Lynch version. Cuz they were quick, snappy, and alien feeling and looking as befits 10000 years in the future.

Better actors in 84 as well. And Baron harkkonen was a stone cold bore. BONUS! Not a lot of acting required by Zendaya.

Anywho, I'd like to see part two and hope they finish things with more vim and vigor.

24 I read I Will Bear Witness: A Diary of the Nazi Years, Vol. I 1933-1941, by Victor Klemperer, trans. by Martin Chalmers. Klemperer was a Dresden Jew, a historian, and a man of letters. His diary, although a bit of a slog to read, is a stunning portrait of day to day life as Hitler came to power and during the first years of World War II. His diary has become a main primary source for historians of the Nazi period.


Of his work, Klemperer said, "It's not the big things that are important, but the everyday life of tyranny, which may be forgotten. A thousand mosquito bites are worse than a blow to the head. I observe, I note the mosquito bites."


While reading this, I noticed parallels between those times and now. Back then it was "It's the Jew's fault!" Now "It's the unvaxxed fault!" One constant remains: authoritarian people gravitate toward government positions.

29 I was right: When the crew of "The Skylark of Space" encountered residents of another world, the story picked up -- except for a chapter devoted to the social structure of that world. Its denizens practice eugenics. Ecch.

Another unintentional anachronism: In making friends with the leader of one faction of this world, the commander of the Skylark shows him a better way to shave. He mixes up lather with his mug and brush.

If science fiction is supposed to.forecast the future, sometimes "Doc" Smith missed the mark.

I read "In This House of Brede" years ago, still have on my shelves. It's a lovely book, and I am not particularly otherwise a fan of Rumer Godden. Still - she told a very lovely, Christian-based story.
As for current YA fiction ... gee, can we spell "grooming" - as in setting up for future sexual exploitation?
This is why I started writing my own YA series - Lone Star Sons, Lone Star Glory, with a third volume, Lone Star Blood in the works. A kind of reworking of the Lone Ranger, only historically accurate with no sexual content and only a little bit of violence, and generally satisfactory endings. It's how I'm fighting back against exploitative wokery in books for YA.
