Politico constructed an oral history of the bin Laden raid and it’s worth the read to get a sense as one can from on oral history, of the authenticity of the event, as well as some interesting details, the rosary held by Biden, and especially the trashing of previous guy...

We have all experienced remotely-located call centers, whether from US prisons or foreign countries. “Minerva at Midnight” (I’m usually posting a story at midnight so I might as well make it a feature, not a bug) Blade Runner questions will be at least amusing when you as a disgruntled consumer, is...

Banana Republic is not yet a bankrupt concept in America, although it is being sorely tested. Trump’s 1/6 coup counted on the numbers of RWNJs in the US military, including some QAnon-influenced former National Security and ex-DoD/Military. The hint at the misuse of federal personnel was foreshadowed in the Summer...

“In order to flip the election, Trump would need 37 Biden electors to flip their vote. There have been 16 total since 1900. Being a faithless elector is now illegal in 33 states.”  x Stephen Miller on Fox & Friends says “an alternative” group of electors is also voting today: “As...

I knew this would happen. Knew it, knew it, knew it.

I walk from my house to Bethany Lake, west of Portland Oregon, on many days.   The Lake is adjacent to a wide utility easement, a golf course, a park, and farmland, so there is considerable open water, undeveloped area, and large trees. All that space, and open water, and lots...
