"Twilight on the frozen lake
North wind about to break
On footprints in the snow
Silence down below"

Dylan, Never Say Goodbye, 1973

That's a great photo. The sky looks like a frozen counterpart to the lake (it also looks vaguely like cerebral cortex).

Eric "Moonbat" Fuller was just arrested for making death threats against a member of the Tea Party. His violent rhetoric is a result of the hate-mongering propaganda directed at the Tea Party by CNN, MSNBC, NYTs and Wapo.

So, according to the latest liberal talking point, those news stations should be shut down and investigated.

Lest I melt the ice in this serene photo (taken, not shot), I have divested my comment of any incendiary metaphors.
While the echos of the would-be political assassin's acts faded fast, the rumble of would-be character assassins rose rapidly. In this atmosphere of mourning civility Obama ascended above the fray as our guiding star, reached out to all Americans – and launched his re-election race. Its apt slogan, 'together we thrive.' From Black Panthers to Blue Dogs, together they thrive. In accordance with the code of conduct of bipartisan cordiality, I'll denounce any suggestion that these fine fellows be named 'Coalescent Coalition of Cuckoos' and their election melody 'Looney Tunes'.

The photo of the frozen lake looks as good spun upside down as it does right side up.

A grim winter sky, if ever there was one. I don't doubt the Lincolns shuddered just a bit more deeply as they contemplated such a sight in their half-face camp.

Arrrgghhhh...., don't say that!

The Blonde and I are just getting over the colds we picked up from her great-niece, but, after she babysat all day Thursday, I'm beginning to suspect we're in for a new round.

Chip, you need to warn people that a couple of seconds watching that picture flip may make their stomachs do the same thing.

Just add polar bears and you can do a knock off series called Ann Althouses' Lower Alaska. We will get to see Meade's fishing skill. We hear he can land a big one.

Frostbite!

Main thing I'd catch would be a sinus infection.

Freeman Hunt said...

The NYT is still trying to frame Loughner in terms of right wing extremism.

Freeman Hunt said...

Charles Blow is one of the few voices of sanity regarding the Loughner issue at the NYT.

Clyde said...

@ Freeman Hunt

And yet Mr. Blow asserts that in his bearded-Spock universe, "the preponderance of [violent rhetoric] comes from the right." Damn that fascist Terran Empire!

Lovely shot.
