Wandering Wednesday Motes

Gas 7/13/21. Up $.06 a gal since last week.

Don’t be fooled: It’s named “Critical Race Theory”. It’s not Critical Race “History”.  Theory “Noun;n a supposition or a system of ideas intended to explain something, especially one based on general principles independent of the thing to be explained.” Teaching it as fact, is in fact, false.

Really: Over the weekend the CPAC, Conservative Political Action Committee, was held.  One of the big items of discussion was the current “Cancel Culture”. So, it was surprise, to me, when attendees announced they were upset over lanyards printed with the “Fox Nation” logo after the streaming service reportedly cut away from a speech on censorship. Am I the only one seeing the irony here?

Movie: Watched “The Fatman”, Mel Gibson and Walton Goggins. Not you typical “Santa Clause” movie. It was a good way to get through a Saturday afternoon without going to the bar. It’s fun.

It’s all smoke and mirrors: President Biden met at the White House Monday with a group of federal and local leaders to promote his administration’s strategy to combat an alarming rise in gun violence. we know there are some things that work,” Mr. Biden said. “And the first of those that work is stemming the flow of firearms.” Since the rest of the article is behind the NYT paywall, the exact way Uncle Joe plans on “stemming the flow” wasn’t available, but that doesn’t really matter. Whatever his “plan” is, I can tell him now; “It Won’t Work”.

And on the same subject: Chicago had a slow weekend with only 40 shot and 11 killed. But what they lacked in casualties they made up in volume. A 31-year-old local rapper, whose real name was Londre Sylvester, had just been released on electronic monitoring when he was fatally shot across the street from the Cook County Jail around 8:50 p.m. Saturday in what authorities believe to be a targeted attack. Sylvester was left suffering from as many as 64 bullet wounds to his head and other areas of the body. “Believe to be a targeted attack”. Ya, Think?? 

A sad Good-Bye: WWE Hall of Famer, and WrestleMania I main eventer, Paul Orndorff has died at age 71. His son Travis shared the sad news on Instagram earlier today (July 12). Orndorff was an ally of Roddy Piper and a thorn in the side of Hulk Hogan throughout the then-WWF’s 1980s boom period. A great physique and a sound technical wrestler, his interview work was second to none. His talent will be missed.

More sports: The cameras are set to start rolling today on a new series being filmed in the Pittsburgh area. ‘A League Of Their Own’ will begin filming Monday. The new Amazon Prime series will be about a women’s professional baseball league. My Mom was a pitcher for the Boeing’s Professional Women’s Baseball from 1949-1954.
