Wednesday Highlights

Man. It’s hot down South, especially when where you work isn’t air conditioned. I kept wiping sweat from my laptop keyboard today.

  1. Hmm.
  2. or should the be Mmmm.
  3. So. Is turnabout fair play?
  4. Up up and away.
  5. First off … as far as I can see Putin and Russia have nothing to gain (and perhaps some to lose) by doing so. Anybody out there think they can see a gain for them? If not, then this is not a surprise.
  6. Let’s see, those who study gun violence find said violence has little sensitivity to gun control legislation yet the left promotes that above all else to control said violence. A pattern emerges. Stupid travels in packs.
  7. Statism and its effects.
  8. I travel quite a bit. This I’ve never noticed.
  9. Mr Dungy’s remarks. If Mr Dungy had said, “I wouldn’t want to draft the President’s son (assume for a moment the President or some similarly famous individual had entering the draft as a prospective 5th (!!!) round offensive linemen) because of the press and attention and non-football related distractions surrounding him.” People would nod understanding. Guess what. Same thing here. You people who want to find a bigot under every rock … are practicing what you wish to detract.
  10. From the opinion, the salient quote. Principled objections?
  11. A film noted. I think it’s important to point out, realistic gun behavior (unlike the film in question) improves not detracts the story, the drama, and the tension. It works in books. Why doesn’t the US film industry get that?
  12. Musing on the future.
  13. The other way the “health care costs” are bent down. And it’s not a good way, which is to say eschewing progress.
  14. Demographics.

  1. 13.The other way the “health care costs” are bent down. And it’s not a good way, which is to say eschewing progress.

    This is a problem I have with the whole concept of ‘health care inflation’. Inflation is generally a rise in prices for the same products over time. Health care is not the same product over time. A hospital stay in 2014 is nothing like a hospital stay in 1980 and there is no way you can opt to buy a ‘1980 hospital stay’ today to compare and contrast prices.
