Tuesday Musings: Quick hits edition

Memorial Day ruined everything. Let's muse, speed round style.


Brinkmann, manufacturer of cheapo Chinese fire hazards masquerading as grills, kindly offered some replacement parts for those that melted when my grill caught fire. They should come in handy just as soon as I get my hands on a spot welder.

Sotomayor makes history by being the first Hispanic... Blah, blah, blah... If this is the sort of stuff you care about (the Hispanic bean counting nonsense, not the intellectual makeup of the court), then you don't deserve to live in a Democracy. And, if the Sonia Sotomayors of the world get their way, you no longer will.

------------

Just had a nice dinner at Victory 44 (at the former Rix and Sauced location near Victory Memorial). The Scotch Egg appetizer was a high point, and the Reuben w/ Gruyere was solid. They really need to get their ducks in a row, liquor license-wise, 'cause imperial pint glasses aren't made for water.

------------

We've got cucumbers going this year. I figure, why the hell not?

------------

I am an atheist when it comes to a God of saccharine pap.

------------

For those who are firewalled from YouTube, the first line of the song is "some of us have skin the color of rich dark coffee."

That's for the cringe-worthy, Brian.

------------

One of the best parts about living in North Minneapolis is playing "guess what's on fire?" Simply follow the scent and the smoke trail. Do some simply calculations and check in at wcco.com after about two hours to see if you were right.

------------

So, North Korea launched another missile. If only they had launched a Hispanic female, it might become real news.

------------

Not the joke I intended, but the vision of North Korea sending Sonia Sotomayor hurdling through the air at hundreds of miles per hour is kinda funny.

------------

Somewhere, at a late night meeting, writers for SNL's Weekend Update are deciding whether it's okay to make fun of the death of Mike Tyson's daughter.

------------

I have decided that it is not.

Hi Kevin. Hope you are well. Relax. You only have eight more years minus a hundred days or so of this stuff left! Go Obama, my friend!

With lifetime appointments and the power to overrule the will of the people and legislate from the bench I could not agree with you more that the constitutional integrity of the proposed Justice is of the utmost importance. On the other hand I don't want to fall in to the trap of the Left as they continually refer to our Country as a Democracy. We are a Republic, ruled by law, at least until Obama appoints three more Justices, then we will be a Democracy, ruled by the mob.
