Kudos to the Badgers on today's win! Hope the WA Huskies can maintain their winning streak tonight.
Our shadows prefer the nineteenth century.
Revenge of the dead men who loved shorts
Was Meade's shadow overlapping yours?
But were you also wearing a long jacket?
What a coincidence. I've been binge watching "Supernatural".
The Shadow knows, what evil lurks in the heart of Lake Wingra.That must be a sign to vote for the man who will drain the lake.
"Meantime, Fedallah was calmly eyeing the right whale's head, and ever and anon glancing from the deep wrinkles there to the lines in his own hand. And Ahab chanced so to stand, that the Parsee occupied his shadow; while, if the Parsee's shadow was there at all it seemed only to blend with, and lengthen Ahab's. As the crew toiled on, Laplandish speculations were bandied among them, concerning all these passing things."
Were you wearing your long legs?
You're closer to the shadow at the bottom so it looks enlarged compared to the distant top.It's not as if you're looking at the shadow straight on.
I wasn't wearing a jacket, just a one layer top and a sort skirt. It does look like the nineteenth century took over. Spooky!
Then there is the long shadow of reality that hangs over Donald Trumps plan to create 25 million new well-paying jobs by putting NAFTA and other trade agreements on hold and to put high tariffs(45%) on goods purchased from China to bring trade into balance. The high paying mnufacturing jobs he wants to bring back to America simply are not out there. Read Mark Perry's latest post entitled: "Why Donald Trump won’t be able to bring US factory jobs back — unless he can negotiate with progress and technology."So Donald Trump can bloviate all he wants about “bringing manufacturing jobs back to the US from the countries that stole them from us.” But most of those jobs are never coming back and other countries are not responsible for “stealing” them for us. Instead of blaming China and Mexico for America’s loss of manufacturing jobs, Trump should instead blame the innovative “Made-in-the-USA” technologies that have increased the productivity of the typical American factory worker to record highs for the loss of factory jobs.It’s the steady march of technological progress that has allowed the US to manufacture output at record levels in recent years with the same number of factory workers as in 1941 — about 12 million. Amazingly, the US is producing today about 10 times more manufacturing output than in the early 1940s with the same number of factory workers (about 12 million), reflecting the exact same trend that brought US agricultural production to new record high levels year after year with fewer and and fewer workers. So if The Donald really thinks he’s going to bring factory jobs back to America, he’s going to have to try to negotiate really hard with the forces of technology, not re-negotiate trade deals with countries like Mexico. And maybe while he’s engaged in those negotiations with technology, he can also try to negotiate bringing back the millions of US farm jobs that have been lost to the forces of technological progress as well…. Good luck with that Mr. Trump!Any look below the surface at Trump's shallow ideas exposes his sheer lack-of-knowledge about anything important. But we are told and many believe that he is going to throw out the elites - as if an under-educated elitist carny barker was even capable of devising and carrying out such a plan.
"And as we wind on down the roadOur shadows taller than our soulThere walks a lady we all knowWho shines white light and wants to showHow everything still turns to goldAnd if you listen very hardThe tune will come to you at lastWhen all are one and one is allTo be a rock and not to roll"
Gadfly, gadfly, blabbity blah. Show us on the economy where the Trump touched you.
What is the tall tawny thick plant along the boardwalk? Phragmites? I hope it isn't, but I fear it is. Horrible stuff.
A delayed throwback Thursday. When I first started reading here, Althouse wore full length skirts all. the. time. All the time! It was a good look, aaallll the time. :)
No thigh gap. Not even an ankle gap.

On closer inspection of the photo, I see Cat-tail heads.
You cast a long shadow on the blogging world, Althouse. HoodlumDoodlum said..."But were you also wearing a long jacket?"I totally got that,LOL.
So Ann wears short skirts but would deny men the comfort of wearing shorts?
Ghost shadow. Saw one here the other day. Spooky indeed.
