After Holiday Tuesday Motes

Don’t pet the shaggy cows: A 34-year-old man was attacked by a bison Monday while walking with his family near Yellowstone National Park’s Giant Geyser. A bison charged the Colorado visitors while they were walking the boardwalk. The family did not flee, and the bison ended up goring the man, injuring his arm in the process. This is the second reported bison attack of the year at the national park prompted by tourists getting “too close to the animal and the bison responding to the perceived threat by goring the individual.” Remember, the suggested social distance for a buffalo is 25 yards.  

Not disappointed: Man, I am loving “Dark Winds” and “The Old Man”. Good acting, great writing, and some really good visuals. I understand, although both shows are in their 1st season, they have been renewed for second seasons. And neither on is “woke”.

Shut up and sing: We go to concerts and shows to hear/see the performer, not to listen to their “wisdom”. Fans in Arizona left the Halsey show after they told audience members to scram if they supported the overturning of Roe-v-Wade. Giving an impassioned speech about the recent US Supreme Court ruling about abortion rights, Halsey told a Phoenix crowd that their “heart breaks” looking out at people who “deserve the right to healthcare” and the “right to choose. To quote R. A. Heinlein; “The United States has become a place where entertainers and professional athletes are mistaken for people of importance.” Actually, calling Halsey an “entertainer” is probably stretching it.

Irony: I find it humorous that a “Fantasy Betting” site has advertising on professional wresting shows.

Keep it to yourself: Last week in Michigan a dummy was arrested for having a fully-automatic switch on his Glock. The weapon was also sporting a 31 round magazine. The switch, bought from Russia as “lawn mower parts” is easily mounted and doesn’t add any bulk to the weapon. Police were able to track him down via his “farcebook” page were there were numerous postings of him firing the weapon and talking about how easy it was to install. He is charged with possession of an automatic weapon, possession of “illegal devices”, felon in possession, and numerous other charges. I think he falls under that old charge “Stupid In A Public Place”.
