I’ll be the first to admit, it’s cold up here in early February. Temps right now are down around zero at night, in the teens in the afternoon. And the days don’t last long. The sun comes up hereabouts at about 0930, and is down by 1700. Plenty of snow on the ground, which I expect will stay until mid to late April.
But boy is it quiet.
The winters here, though, honestly aren’t any worse than those I grew up with in northeast Iowa. The daylight hours are the main difference, but we’ll make up for that with twenty-hour days in midsummer. I think we’re making a good trade, especially considering how loony Colorado (and, frankly, most of the 48) is becoming.
Moving right along, then…
On To the Links!
No shit, Sherlock. I’m reminded of an early-Eighties-sometime interview of David Lee Roth, done by some Rolling Stone putz-head. Roth had talked about his and his Van Halen band-mates working-class youths, and the contrast with how much money they were making with the band. “You know, Dave,” the interviewer pontificated, “they say you can’t buy happiness.” “Maybe,” Roth replied with his trademark grin, “…but I can buy a yacht big enough to sail right up next to it.”
Liberal reporter calls out Crazy Eyes for being a lying piece of shit. Well, not in so many words, but the message is clear.
This Week’s Idiots:
John Kerry is an idiot. He’s also an arrogant, elitist fuck. But Ted Cruz did a pretty good job of dismantling the asshole.
I actually burst out laughing at this idiocy. Paywalled, but the headline is all you need.
Wired‘s Malkia Devich-Cyril is an idiot, and an idiot who has no fucking idea what the concept of free speech means.
Just the other day our oldest daughter reminded us of this song, saying that it always reminded her of her Dad. It probably applies even more now that we’re abandoning suburban life for rural Alaska, and it is in fact at least a half-hour to a Walmart or a grocery store. This is Aaron Lewis with Northern Redneck. Enjoy.
