I’m going to do something I haven’t yet done, and that’s feature one of my own RedState pieces here: 2 US Navy Sailors Arrested for Selling Intel to China (also linked in my RedState section below). Give it a quick read. I’ll wait right here.
Back? OK, then, now that you see what I’m talking about, I’ll just say something that RedState’s editorial standards don’t allow: Fuck those shitheads, both of them. I hope that if we can’t get them executed, that they at least rot in damp, shitty jail cells for the rest of their natural lives.
In better news, grouse season opens here in the Great Land tomorrow. With a bit of luck and cooperation from the weather I’ll get out to shoot some toothsome sprucies this weekend.
There. I feel better. Now then…

The longest-ranged sniper rifles in the world. Not sure I agree with all of these, but interesting all the same.

My RedState stuff:
This Week’s Cultural Edification:
Not only was Frank Zappa a dozen different kinds of musical genius – he carved his own initials deep into rock & roll, he endlessly parodied other artists, his own music was never played the same way in any two concerts, and oh, by the way, he wrote and conducted his own symphonies – but he also did some amazing covers.
Now, everybody who’s anybody in music has covered the 1971 Led Zeppelin hit Stairway to Heaven. It’s one of the greatest rock & roll songs ever produced, and it’s been covered endlessly. But Zappa, in his 1991 live album The Best Band You’ve Never Heard In Your Life, did the best cover of Stairway ever done, anywhere, ever. Here it is – enjoy.
