Baby raccoons play on a bicycle wheel

There’s no information on this video, but who cares when it’s three baby raccoons competing for their turn on a procyonid playground:

Smackdown: He Who Shall Not Be Named equates ex-Muslims with Nazis

I try to not post too many Tweeticles, but couldn’t resist this one, particularly because C. J. W*rl*m*n’s ludicrous tweet of this morning was so effectively countered by Maryam Namazie, head of the Council of ex-Muslims of Britain.  (Note: my posting a tweet by W*rl*m*n does not constitute my writing his name in full, which […]

Pond update

It’s time to buy more frozen corn, as I now have two ducks to feed, and I have to keep them apart. It’s tsouris to help foster ducks!  Here are Honey (rear) and Daisy (front) at teatime yesterday afternoon. Note the goldfish clustered around Honey, waiting to eat any bits of corn she misses. Sometimes I […]

And no violence, either!

Just as I oppose all bans on free speech as it’s been construed by the courts, so I oppose all forms of violence against those whose views we abhor—except in self-defense.  Never in my life would I go to a demonstration carrying a weapon, just as the brave African-Americans who marched in the streets of […]

Should there be Nazi or white supremacist speech bans? No!

I have to say that I’ve been pretty disappointed the past few days with those readers who have said that Nazi and white supremacist speech should be banned, and that the U.S. should enact “hate speech” laws, similar to those in Canada and some European countries, making certain sentiments simply illegal to express in public. […]

Readers’ wildlife photos

Thanks to the many readers who answered my call for photos. Today we’re featuring the lovely bird photography of reader Colin Franks (photography website here, Facebook page here, and Instagram page here) Common Loon (Gavia immer) [JAC: I love this photo with the water drop.] American Dipper (Cinclus mexicanus): Pacific Wren  (Troglodytes pacificus): Wood Duck (Aix […]

Tuesday: Hili dialogue (and Leon monologue)

Well, it’s Tuesday, August 15, 2017. and we’re halfway through August, wending our way toward Back To School Time. It’s also National Lemon Meringue Pie Day, a dessert that, made properly, is a thing of beauty. (It’s also Julia Child’s birthday; see below.) In many places it’s the Feast of the Assumption, a Catholic holiday […]

How an IMAX projector works

I’m worn out by the Charlottesville business, and depressed that some readers are calling for speech bans. We won’t discuss that in this thread (there are other posts where you can do that). Instead, let’s learn how an IMAX projector works. I’ve been to a few IMAX movies, the first being “Flying” or “Flight” (can’t […]

Armed Leftists in Charlottesville

To those who questioned whether any of those who protested against the Nazis and bigots came “loaded for bear,” here are two photos taken by a friend of mine who was in Charlottesville during the troubles. His commentary: This “militia” was on the anti-fascist side, I’m sad to report. While the Nazis/KKK had many groups […]

Further schisms in the Left, as observed on Everyday Feminism

I read HuffPo and Everyday Feminism (not obsessively!) to find out what the Regressive Left is up to, just as I look at Breitbart and The Daily Wire to see what the Right is thinking. Everyday Feminism is notable for its extreme denigration of white men at the expense of everyone else (they offer a […]
