Lake Wingra, today.

Epstein and Yoo discuss the John Doe investigations (podcast, 32 minutes in).

rhhardin said...

They also discuss Scalia's writing style (50 minues in)

Hey, the ice is finally off the lake!

MadisonMan said...

I was thinking, as I was walking the dog -- what a glorious night it would be to be paddleboarding on Wingra. But I didn't go down. Spent the time talking to neighbors instead.

Holy shit I am watching "Betrayed" (1988) and it makes "The Hudsucker Proxy" reductive yet even better in more profound ways, something, alas in this day and age, I had previously given up on.

Guildofcannonballs said...

"Mad Men" was probably based on the collective memory of greatness unspoken of (about on the streets or the papers) yet scene and heard amongst the writers of MM.

Laying dormant on the minds of those whom power had descended celluloid-wise.

I mean c'mon, John Mahoney was in both.


You know.

Patent isn't King until the King says "make me laugh."


(Hah hereby intended to mean greater than the mere 'ha' for reasons I couldn't elaborate more unless I get paid more)

Guildofcannonballs said...

I have all the turns of penis: phrases to me are secondary.

Guildofcannonballs said...

We all know now Barack's promises in the Middle East are shit.

But what about Bobby Jindal?

Did I spell that properly?

In any event, after perhaps the most perfect link in a (measure of time I will not show you yet*) Althouse comment section I remember--save the few always performing far beyond par--I read the entire damn article from 1983 about fucking cunt Gahndi.

Or however the fuck spells his shit.


Guildofcannonballs said...

People who know know that I mean fooking koeunt like Gaelic before damn Cromwell.

Guildofcannonballs said...

If I was King, it would forever be known as Crompoor.

Wisconsin is the most beautiful state in the union.

Guildofcannonballs said...

Nobody is smart enough but me to come up with this so I will:

Jindal rules America with an eye toward India becoming, with Roman Catholic dignity for all, no matter their unAmerican attributes and their history, and, quite entirely 100% unlike Iraq, it works so unabashedly great even evil Democrat forces (cf. Vietnam/Iraq) can't fuck it all up?

Obama is remembered as a great man, who brought America into the 21st Century.

Fair enough.

Guildofcannonballs said...

Anyone within grasps of decent history, not fucked history, will understand India releasing a billion persons from their caste will be much, much, incredibly-moreso successful than Tom Friedman and China's despotism.

Bobby Jindal 2016!

Guildofcannonballs said...

You wanna talk trade?

With Bobby Jindal?

Do you?

Do you really?

Guildofcannonballs said...

The absolute best is Jindal/Fiorina with Ted Cruz promised as SOS.

Fuck attorney general I said SOS goddamnit.

Walker can be a part of the administration if he should so choose.

Guildofcannonballs said...

"measure of time I will not show you yet*"

If this was striking I believe it due to punctuation and appreciate those interpreterors, cheif omaunst in our day/age protein wisdeom.

Meade said...

That might be the prettiest urban lake anywhere.

Guildofcannonballs said...

There really couldn't be any other-than-God explanation for my remembering but not integrating the film about the dingus-wise theological lessons unprofound.

Gotta be profound.


Guildofcannonballs said...

Both Bobby and Carly would have to resign before they replace SOS Cruz.

Birkel said...

California, Alaska, Hawai'i and North Carolina are the most beautiful states. Mountains, oceans and all but Hawai'i have everything in between.

Guildofcannonballs said...

Today's Democrat's are all Judge Snails.

Ted Knight white yo.

And Democrats too, but not all.

And ohhhhhh boyyyyy, when they hear about his a sound called ROCK AND ROLLL!!!!!!

This is a link to something so far beyond your ability to recognize you might well have ability and cause to sue me for undertaking your silly small little brain to an extent foreseen by I and not you.

Any way to wiggle around the two-year statute of limitations for misrepresentation by a medical professional? Would there be any way to gain standing?

My heart goes out to the Dalits. Solving the caste system is a formidable goal.

P.S. -- Thanks Wildswan for the germ of a novel. It's having fun living up here in my head.

Prettiest urban lake? Meade, get thee to Seattle. Green Lake, Lake Union and especially Lake Washington would like to have a word for you.

Oddly enough, I just read this passage last night:

Since most of the city clings to the sides of hills that rise from lake and bay and river, there is always a view. Lake Washington is to the east, at Seattle's back door. It makes a good backyard. It is a long and lovely lake, still marked with the wilderness though highways encircle it and a floating bridge of concrete spans it. The racing shells of the University of Washington practice on it, and estates and mills and small homes and a naval air station stand on the shore. "A mountain lake at sea level," a visitor called it sixty years ago, when most of the shore was still outside city limits. It still feels like a mountain lake.

page 66, Reading Seattle: The City in Prose; a couple references there are a bit out of date as our resident Seattlites (I believe madashell and maybe Chris N?) will notice. And that passage does not even mention Mount Rainier, of which one has a stunning view while crossing the lake between Mercer Island and Bellevue.

But I'm sure Lake Wingra is very pretty. *pat pat pat*

Pants, the nice thing about Wingra, that makes it beautiful, is that it is surrounded entirely by forests mostly (and 2 parks). It has beautiful sight lines: if you're on it, very easy to convince yourself you're not in a city.
