Quote of the day:  “It is time for us to do what we have been doing. And that time is every day. Every day it is time for us to agree that there are things and tools that are available to us to slow this thing down.”

“Eruption could have a slight climate cooling effect”

I’m off to buy a Hummer… TO SAVE THE PLANET

So, earlier this morning I had a dream that I had excepted employment in my own law firm, but at their office in Belgrade.  (Which does not, as far as I know, exist, even today. In other countries, yes, but not there.). At some point in the dream, I start wondering, why did I accept working in the city that I know nothing about? And why did I accept a salary of $99,000, which is what I was making as a second year associate in 1992?

Must be those Methodistsm again. No, an adherent of religion of peace

 A rabbi and three others were taken hostage at the reform Beth Israel Synagogue in Colleyville, Texas on Saturday by a gunman who said he was the brother of Pakistani Aafia Siddiqui, who is serving an 86-year prison sentence for killing an FBI agent.

The gunman demanded to meet with his sister in negotiations with the FBI as well as have her released.

Good grief.

I’ll try to be nice and say, “I hope this is resolved peacefully“. But “two the chest, one to the head“ for the scumbag works for me, too.

CNN “reporting” on that hostage situation:

Notice anything missing?

It appears one of the hostages has been released, if CNN is reporting accurately.
