Theodore Van Kirk, RIP

Thank you for your service, Captain Van Kirk.  You did the right thing.  Rest in Peace.

("Captain Van Kirk"...it has a certain ring to it, right?)

Saturday Night Videos

I gots both of these on vinyl and the hardware to disturb the entire neighborhood...

so anyway, my weekend guilty pleasure is the music programming on my base right wing conspiracy radio station, WAAM.  They run both Bill Bennett and Laura Ingraham (AKA: NPR for RINOS).  I'm just outside the wire of The Peoples' Republic of AnnArbor, NPR for RINOS is the best that I can expect.

The aforementioned noise notwithstanding, Radio Jon D did the following twin-spin this evening.  This is not the version I was looking for, but it appears that every version on the inter-web net-tubes has been bastardized.

Pure, semi-informed speculation

just some thoughts on the news of the day...

so anyway, I'm sure you've seen the news that the FAA has prohibited US flights into Tel Aviv, and that several European airlines have suspended flights to Tel Aviv as well.

Serious You Guys, the terrorist have won.

Having proven that they can shoot down any air-liner, anywhere, they have made El Al the safest airline on the planet.

Imagine Hamas (or the Ukrainian separatist) targeting an El Al air-liner.   Can you imagine the Israeli response?  I can.  The "Wrath of God" comes to mind.  Given the choice between El Al and Quantas, I'm flying El Al.  Air France, Delta, US Air, et al can all be targeted because western civilization no longer has balls.

The Israelis do.

We live in interesting times.  Which sucks.  I have twin 14-YO daughters and a 10-YO son.  This was not the world I meant to leave them.  All I can offer is a ridiculous stock-pile of ammo and a certain cold deposition.

Saturday Night Video

The double feature traffic safety edition...

so anyway, I encourage you to watch both of these short videos, especially if you have teenage drivers in your life.  The first one came to me via an e-mail thread, the second if from a link* on Ace's sidebar.

Just in case...

Any questions?

Make the rubble bounce, Bibi...

Saturday Night Video

R.I.P. Tommy Ramone...

so anyway, so ends an era.  I was never much into the punk rock, but I always liked The Ramones' sound.
