Why Are White Men Stockpiling Guns?LeisureGuy

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 19:58:09 +0000

One guess is that they feel powerless and owning a lot of guns makes them feel less powerless. But that’s a guess. Jeremy Adam Smith in Scientific American explores other reasons: Since the 2008 election of President Obama, the number of firearmsmanufactured in the U.S. has tripled, while imports have doubled. This doesn’t mean more households […]

Above you see the makings of my breakfast, which is 4 WW points. Oyster mushrooms (because of this article) Asparagus, scallions, and a shallot (because of this article and their high FOS content) Fresno and jalapeño peppers (because capsaicin is good, especially for diabetics) Tomatoes (because they’re tasty and are best when cooked) Egg (for […]

Rose fragrances to start the day rightLeisureGuy

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 14:51:19 +0000

Rose is a great fragrance, IMO. The Kent Infiniti, a very nice little synthetic, made a very nice lather frm Soap Commander’s Love—True Rose—shaving soap, and the Baili BR161 removed the stubble with aplomb. A finish with a splash of Saint Charles Shave’s Dark Rose, and once more the day starts on a very good […]

At long last: Republicans agree to clarify that CDC can research gun violenceLeisureGuy

Wed, 21 Mar 2018 22:14:54 +0000

The GOP initiative to be ignorant about gun violence was always revealing, I think: the GOP is indeed the party that embraces ignorance (climate change, sex education, and on and on). But now at least we can start to understand what is effective and what is not in dealing with gun violence, of which the […]

Alan Dershowitz’s Audition to Be Trump’s Lawyer Is Not Going WellLeisureGuy

Wed, 21 Mar 2018 22:10:00 +0000

Jonathan Chait has a good column calling out the errors in Alan Dershowitz’s legal “reasoning”: Alan Dershowitz has carved out a role as Donald Trump’s favorite legal mind, a position he has previously held for such figures as Claus von Bülow and O.J. Simpson. (The common thread among all these figures is not that they […]

What Facebook Did to American Democracy—and why it was so hard to see it comingLeisureGuy

Wed, 21 Mar 2018 18:36:47 +0000

Alexis Madrigal writes in the Atlantic: In the media world, as in so many other realms, there is a sharp discontinuity in the timeline: before the 2016 election, and after. Things we thought we understood—narratives, data, software, news events—have had to be reinterpreted in light of Donald Trump’s surprising win as well as the continuing […]

Deborah Netburn reports in the LA Times: New discoveries in eastern Africa suggest that human behaviors like symbolic thought and the creation of extended social networks were established at least 320,000 years ago — tens of thousands of years earlier than previously thought.

Shave for the vernal equinox: Phoenix Artisan Solstice and the Rockwell R3LeisureGuy

Wed, 21 Mar 2018 16:09:42 +0000

The equinox, of course, is as far removed as one can get from the solstice: each equinox is midway between the two solstices. So that is enough of a connection to provide an excuse for a shave with Phoenix Artisans Solstice shaving soap, a favorite. (Have you tried it? If so, what did you think?) […]

Trump Economist Wants to Give Rich People Another Tax Break, Without a Vote in CongressLeisureGuy

Wed, 21 Mar 2018 03:47:16 +0000

Sigh. Jonathan Chait writes in New York magazine: The Trump administration’s new National Economic Council director, Lawrence Kudlow, has a lifelong monomaniacal obsession with reducing taxes for the rich. Unfortunately for Kudlow and his boss, Republicans have already used up their one-per-session budget reconciliation bill, which would allow them to pass a tax cut bill […]

Disappointing hot sauceLeisureGuy

I bought some Scotch bonnet hot sauce at the little store across the street. It looked promising: Scotch bonnet peppers are, I think, quite hot… yes: from Wikipedia: Most Scotch bonnets have a heat rating of 100,000–350,000 Scoville units.[5] For comparison, most jalapeño peppers have a heat rating of 2,500 to 8,000 on the Scoville […]

Republicans Can’t Understand Why Trump Is Acting GuiltyLeisureGuy

It looks as though the US is headed for real trouble, thanks to the way the GOP in Congress is failing in its constitutional duties.

Jennifer Rubin has a good column on the upcoming Democratic tsunami: NBC News reports: Our latest NBC/WSJ poll finds Democrats with a 10-point lead in congressional preference, with Dems holding the advantage in enthusiasm and among independents, and with college-educated white women breaking heavily against the GOP.
