Assault on the United States Capitol

A shocking example of FBI’s enhanced interrogation of seditionists. Not for the faint of heart!
A new form of torture: smorgasbording.

And if you haven't done it, let me tell you that the descent of Evans is no piece of cake. The Mount Evans Scenic Byway is in shockingly bad condition above Echo Lake, and especially atrocious in the switchbacks above Summit Lake. The first ten miles of the descent are no fun at all, and the first ...

I agree with most of this. On the other hand, I'll admit to not being kept awake at night worrying about the investment prospects of a bunch of venture capitalists and private equity firms. These are, let's not forget, the same groups that pumped billions upon billions into Theranos (oops!). I woul...

For the time being, however, I need to get my ass on the trainer so I don't die making my second ascent of Mount Evans. Jealous in the extreme. It's on my bucket list but I probably won't get to attempt it for another year or two. I'm torn between taking the road bike to make the climb easier versu...

I think Dominion has a defamation case. (Not sure if it's just slander per se or also libel. Libel has to involve a "permanence" of the medium of defamation.) I think the damages may be excessive but that can be resolved by an ad damnum motion. I would guess $50 million is in the ballpark...

Trump - BANED from Twitter! Oh noes!

In response to Amazon's deplatforming, folks on Twitter are vowing to never use Amazon products again. That they do their public vows on Twitter says everything about the strength of their boycott. This is even more laughable than most boycott threats. It used to be that companies would have a &quo...

Trump has flatly stated that he will not be at the inauguration January 20. The rational part of my brain says that is typical, petulant behavior for Trump. I have to admit, though, there is a tiny part of me that saying "he knows something bad is going to happen and he doesn't want to be ther...
