The beautiful Airstream myth and painful RV reality of life on the roadLeisureGuy

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 18:04:06 +0000

Ellie Robins has an intriguing book review in the LA Times, with some good photos: “You have taken over the job of creating desire, and have transformed people into constantly moving happiness machines. Machines which have become the key to economic progress.” So said the secretary of commerce and next president, Herbert Hoover, to a group […](image)

A traditional sort of shave for ThanksgivingLeisureGuy

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 17:24:36 +0000

For example, no synthetic brush, plus traditional brands—also my tradition inversion of the Geo. F. Trumper lid. This, as you regular readers know, is the older Trumper soap, when it was still good, and the Rooney Finest worked up a really fine lather from it. My Gillette 1940s Aristocrat, the very razor pictured on the […](image)

Pennsylvania Cops Abuse Elderly Couple in Raid on Marijuana Plants That Weren’tLeisureGuy

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 20:34:55 +0000

Law enforcement in the US can be good or horrible, and when it is horrible, there is often no accountability.

Vie-Long, Van Yulay, and the Feather AS-D1LeisureGuy

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 17:35:50 +0000

I really like Van Yulay soaps a lot, and Achilles is very nice. The soaps vary in ingredients and in fragrance. Achilles has this scent: “Tobacco with the perfect amount of Kentucky bourbon, hints of cherry, notes of vanilla, of rosewood, cedar, smoke, and sweet birch.” Its ingredients: Stearic Acid, Coconut Fatty Acid, Palm Stearic, […](image)

Thousands of Blacks Are Denied Voting Rights Because They’re PoorLeisureGuy

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 23:10:04 +0000

I didn’t know this. Kevin Drum writes: I did not know this: Hundreds of thousands of Americans are being denied the right to vote because they are poor. In nine states, Republican legislators have enacted laws that disenfranchise anyone with outstanding legal fees or court fines. For example, in Alabama more than 100,000 people who owe money — […](image)

The NHL (and the NFL) have much to answer for: ‘I Have No Idea How to Tell This Horror Story’LeisureGuy

The NHL and NFL care only about the money they make and care nothing about the health of their players.

Everything wrong with the ‘SNL’ letter supporting Al FrankenLeisureGuy

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 20:56:07 +0000

Molly Roberts makes some very good points in her column in the Washington Post: Well, he didn’t do anything to me. That, in so many words, is what three dozen women who worked on “Saturday Night Live” said in a letter supporting Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) on Tuesday. “What Al did was stupid and foolish, and we […](image)

The Retaliatory State: How Trump Is Turning Government Into a Weapon of RevengeLeisureGuy

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 20:20:23 +0000

In New York magazine Jonathan Chait notes an ominous development: Do you remember the “IRS scandal”? Unlike the conspiracy theories supported by “crazy” Republicans, like birtherism and Sharia law spreading in the U.S., the IRS scandal is one of the conspiracy theories supported by “Establishment” Republicans, like climate-science denial and Benghaaaazi. The premise of the […](image)

Republicans Are Throwing Away Their Shot at Tax ReformLeisureGuy

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 19:17:55 +0000

David Frum, former speechwriter for President George W. Bush, reports in the Atlantic: America badly needs corporate tax reform. The United States pretends to tax corporations heavily. But those heavy tax rates are perforated by randomly generous rules such that many tax-efficient firms pay nothing at all, or even receive money back from the U.S. […](image)

To Save Net Neutrality, We Must Build Our Own InternetLeisureGuy

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 19:02:00 +0000

This is an excellent idea, though big telecoms will quickly use their power to push state legislatures to make this illegal, in the same way they have blocked municipalities. Jason Koebler writes in Motherboard: The Federal Communications Commission will announce a full repeal of net neutrality protections Wednesday, according to the New York Times and several other […](image)

The recent tide of apologies by famous men has been ‘awful.’ Here’s what the men should have said.LeisureGuy

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 18:27:28 +0000

I also noticed the way the apologies (when offered: I have yet to hear one from Donald Trump or Roy Moore) have seemed hedged. Allison Klein writes in the Washington Post: The near-daily tide of sexual misconduct allegations against famous men has spawned a head-turning stream of apologies, acknowledgments that experts say have been generally […](image)

Great shave using some favorites (brush, soap, razor, and aftershave)LeisureGuy

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 16:48:10 +0000

I am finding that Solstice by Phoenix Artisans is a definite favorite of mine (and let me note immediately that I have no arrangement with the vendor other than as a customer). The soap has great ingredients, and terrific fragrance, makes a fine lather, and leaves my skin feeling soft and nourished. The Copper Hat […](image)
