Snow in Madison this morning (not much, but I saw it).

I can't even comment on this for fear it's going to trigger some kind of NSFW porn-alert siren in the IT dept.

I figured she was trolling Laslo in the other post when she mentioned squirting breast milk on a Saint Bernard.

Wet pink is on the 2-d color wheel.

What, no reflections in the rain droplets? Ho hum.

Are these Female color flowers? But the Cardinals at our bird feeder are a married pair with the female in drab orangish-brown and the larger, imperious and handsome male bird in a brilliant Chinese red. The male wins the Red Carpet feathers competition hands down.

Jackson, Miss. — A Mississippi man arrested in the burning of an African-American church that was spray-painted with the words “Vote Trump” is a member of the congregation, the church’s bishop said.

A dual-national [US, Israel] teenager was indicted in the Tel Aviv District Court on Monday for a series of more than 2,000 bomb threats and related actions against Jewish institutions, airports and police stations in the United States and other countries.

A couple of Drudge fake headlines:

Frozen brains 'woken up' and transplanted in donor bodies..."

Using the past tense in the headline means "not yet".

"A doctor who was violently removed from a United Airlines flight has reached a settlement with the carrier."

"Mr. Munoz said he was going to do the right thing, and he has," Demetrio said. "In addition, United has taken full responsibility for what happened on Flight 3411, without attempting to blame others, including the city of Chicago. For this acceptance of corporate accountability, United is to be applauded."

Do you think United settled on behalf of Chicago, releasing the city from liability, or do you think the lawsuit will continue?

dreams said...

My guess is it's over though Chicago might have paid some of the settlement but United took the blame.

Rhapsody In Green:

Any guesses as to the monetary amount of the settlement?

dreams said...

I heard on Lou Dobbs not long after it happened that he was hearing talk of an 8 figure settlement.

Now that Mead and Althouse have seen the beauties of Utah, I wonder how they feel about Trump's executive order to review National Monuments and perhaps turn over millions of acres to oil and gas drillers?

Wet pink is good.

Rusty said...

So
After two years and a hip surgery I have lost nearly seventy lbs.
Might not mean much to you but I'm kinda chuffed.
Thought I'd share.

Ignorance is Bliss said...

Rusty- congrats!

Meade said...

Way to lighten up, Rusty!

I agree: "A failure to build the wall IS a government shutdown."

"Now that Trump has capitulated on even asking for funding for a wall, the Democrats are on their knees saying, "Thank you, God! Thank you, God!"

"He's the commander in chief! He said he'd build a wall. If he can't do that, Trump is finished, the Republican Party is finished, and the country is finished." - Ann Coulter

"Way to lighten up, Rusty!"
Yeah. But I'm still s ugly as a baboons ass.
TY BTW

How did you lose the weight?

Rusty said...

It started as a bet with my youngest daughter. She bet me I couldn't live without carbs of any sort for 30 days. I weighed nearly 300 lbs. I kept at it for over six months and lost 50 lbs. My dr wanted me to lose ten more lbs before surgery. I lost 20 and another 5 just doing PT and not eating much. Still no carbs.
You really don't miss carbs after awhile.
Lovely carbs. Beautiful carbs.
Going forward. Since I can now walk and move like I could 20 years ago and will most likely NOT have to have back surgery.
The plan is to exercise more.

@Rusty:

You mean simple carbs, not complex carbs, right? It is not possible to live without carbohydrates in some form.
