We didn’t go out after sage grouse. Mrs. Animal had a couple of tight deadlines to make for her publishing business, I had plenty of work around here to do to advance getting this Colorado house ready to sell and, to be honest, I didn’t really feel like getting up early and driving up to North Park by myself.
But there is plenty more upland bird hunting to be done; the pheasant population on the eastern plains is doing reasonably well as I hear it, and there are always waterfowl to pick up out there along the South Platte. So we’ll see.
I might even lease a goose pit for a morning or two. The Hate Birds, the Birds That Hate may hate, but they also are better than fair eating.

In a decision just issued in County of Butler, et al. v. Governor Wolf, et al., Judge William Stickman, IV of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania has ruled that “(1) the congregate gathering limits imposed by Defendants’ mitigation orders violate the right of assembly enshrined in the First Amendment; (2) that the stay-at-home and business closure components of Defendants’ orders violate the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment; and (3) the business closure components of the Defendants’ orders violate the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.” A glimmer of hope?
Speaking of which: If the shoe fits, Queen Nancy.
School choice could be great for rural communities. And urban communities. And everywhere. Hell, let’s just get government out of the business of education everywhere, at all levels.
Now this is a threat, especially given the violence and looting that’s been going on. Note that this was 2018, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see this kind of crap this year; in fact, I’ll be a bit surprised if both sides don’t do it.
Speaking of violence; two LA-area sheriff’s deputies were just shot from ambush. And some protestors blocked the ER entrance where the officers were taken. Honestly, at that point I wouldn’t have minded if officers opened fire. This is the fruit of the “defund the cops” ranting. Anyone still doubt that civil order is breaking down in our major cities?
Groper Joe’s campaign has been up to some shenanigans. In other news, the sky is blue, water is wet and cake is fattening.
Speaking of which, the Democrats may try a nuclear option to overturn the election.
This Week’s Idiots:
No further comments; today I’ll leave you with the woman I believe to be one of the best, if not the best female vocalist alive today. This is Mary Fahl, with a song based on Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Mermaid (the actual story, not the idiotic Disney take.) This is Ariel. Enjoy.
