    Meanwhile, up in Cincinnati a Ben-Gals cheerleader says she is grossly underpaid, making just $2.85 per hour when she figures it all in, so she is suing.

    Someone asked if I or my son had seen photographs of dog/soldier reunions and that answer would be “of course!” But I’m not sure this one between my son and our two dogs will be all that different from when he usually gets here. The youngsters don’t own a dog yet and they both love dogs very much. So when Josh gets here, he always comes in and flops down on the ground and just allows the ‘boys’ to slobber and drop fur all over him. I’m sure it will be a similar scene here when he arrives this weekend.

    Thanks for all the nice words about his homecoming pictures. I think I’m still basking in the glow of how great Friday was! Now if only my insomnia would resolve itself and let me go back to sleep. I have a job now!

    Hey Nance, I’m in the big easy, just got here. Boy it’s foggy isn’t it.
    Would try to meet up but need to get back to indiana after a nap.
    Enjoy the weather 63 @ 5:25 isn’t to bad.

    Pat McCrory’s jobs program. Why are all Republicans such shitty thin-skinned trash?

    And the fired worker responds via comments on TPM:
    I am the Drew Swope who was fired. The governor lost his mind and totally over reacted as store camera footage would show. Obviously I broke company rules when I spoke. But I regret only that I was so polite to that man. Indictment must be stressful for him.

    McCrory’s employers (Duke Energy, Art Pope) must be getting ready to hang him out to dry.

    McRory seems to have rocks in his head*…and maybe he’ll get to help former-Governor Ultrasound break rocks at the Federal Pen

    *that pun almost worked

  7. coozledad said on February 18, 2014 at 11:13 am

    I’m old enough to remember Republicans going all erectile when that glans penis headed failure Joe the Plumber, approached Obama. Obama was graceful and gave the guy his fifteen minutes of public spooge, of course, because Obama is an adult.
    Ditto with nicotine fueled harridan and criminal incubator Jan Brewer. Bitch even stuck her finger in his chest. I’d have had the secret service strap her ass to a stake at the capitol as a Halloween decoration, but that’s why I’m not an elected official.

    McCrory is. He’s a public servant by the broadest reading of the law, and he’s the servant of the guy he had fired. He’s a trashy, mincing twunt. All Republicans are this way because they have to bow and scrape and lick ass for their dollar. They in turn expect everyone else to lick theirs.

    They don’t get human dignity. It’s not in their moral vocabulary.

    Cooz – years (and years) ago, I’d have argued with that.

    I’d have been wrong, though.

    Some other commenters hereabouts occasionally remind me how stupid I sound, when I go on about Oxy-Rush or shit-for-brains Sean, essentially admitting that I listen to those lunatics from time to time; and I’ll cop to that.

    I live about 10 minutes from where I work, and at lunchtime I can learn what the head flying monkey of the rightwing airwaves thinks is Issue #1 (yesterday he was attacking Hillary Clinton; I changed to Rock 104 before I made it out of our parking lot); and in the evening I can hear whether the local lip flapper chose to parrot it, or if he’s off on a different tangent.

    The thing is, it (the Subject of the Day) always seems to indicate the status of right-wing id.

    And indeed, Oxy-Rush seems to be the fantasist-in-chief

  9. Sherri said on February 18, 2014 at 12:52 pm

    A spokesman for McCrory told the Observer that the governor never raised his voice and that the fired worker actually made an obscene gesture

    If only we could fire Supreme Court Justices for making obscene gestures!

    “The governor lost his mind and totally over reacted as store camera footage would show.”

    “A spokesman for McCrory told the Observer that the governor never raised his voice and that the fired worker actually made an obscene gesture”

    I would like to see the footage. Somebody is lying and I have a strong hunch as to which one it is.

    The goats in the picture Dexter posted are available crossing that thing in video form. I know I saw it on facebook. One of those statements that leads nowhere.

  13. coozledad said on February 18, 2014 at 3:36 pm

    Dexter: We had a family of goats that would do that. Moishe, Darlene, and their kids Lynyrd Skittish, and Simone? (there have been so many) Their gymnasium was an old picnic table.

  14. coozledad said on February 18, 2014 at 3:56 pm

    Nope, got it wrong. My wife says the kids were Imelda and Ferdinand. I’ve forgotten them completely, and they did so well in school and kept their noses clean, too.

    I know…a lot of you use soy and almond, but that stuff is full of sugar and just SUCKS. I don’t drink milk as a beverage, but it’s pretty good on my Wheaties and raisin bran. So goddam it all to hell: http://www.nbcnews.com/business/consumer/milk-could-go-60-cents-gallon-n32886

    I thought I was going to be the latest fatality of the nn.c community today, walking around the city with big chunks of ice falling off the buildings… but I survived. I had lunch with my former co-workers so I walked to the loop. What a slushy, drippy mess, at every curb I stepped off of there was a big old dirty puddle, good thing I had on my waterproof combat boots with my jeans tucked into them. It’s 45 degrees right now, it was sunny earlier, quite a change from yesterday. It will be this way for a couple of days, rain on Thurs, then the temp drops and there will be ILF everywhere, but I’m leaving on Saturday.

    Hey, Cooze @7, speaking of Joe the Plumber:
    Holy Toledo Blade! Joe got a job at Chrysler and joined the union . . .

    We had a huge old tractor tire partially buried upright at the place in Auburn. The goats used to hop up there all the time.

  21. Deb said on February 18, 2014 at 9:16 pm

    Nance, you need to install a like or guffaw button for the Cooze posts. His insults are an art form. I’m in awe. That is all.

  22. Dexter said on February 19, 2014 at 4:13 am

    Kiev is blowing up, and guess who photo-bombs the newscasts? Pussy Riot. Enough with the damn Pussy Riot. The story was fun and interesting at first, but by now we know they are horrid musicians and singers and they hate Vlad Putin. OK , we get it. It was just irritating to see them in the news with the very serious matters at hand in Kiev. People are dying and if the tanks roll in, this will get really bad very quickly .
    22 dead now.

  23. Dexter said on February 19, 2014 at 4:21 am

    Every now and then I hear a joke or statement about noticing burnt toast’s smell when the toaster isn’t being used at all.
    I began hearing it means you are having a stroke. I was making toast and I did indeed burn it like I do intentionally and have forever, but from all the recent reading I thought “I’m having a stroke.” Well, of course it was the toast, but I thought I had better research this phenomena a little bit.

  24. Deborah said on February 19, 2014 at 7:51 am

    Ok you’re scaring me Dexter, last week I was driving my Jeep in Santa Fe and noticed the distinct odor of toast, not burn’t though, I even mentioned it to Little Bird, she didn’t smell it.

  25. alex said on February 19, 2014 at 9:00 am

    Pussy Riot is in the headlines and on the airwaves because people like seeing, hearing and using the word pussy. Too bad the Butthole Surfers are apolitical. They still get bleeped and asterisked.

  26. MichaelG said on February 19, 2014 at 10:52 am

    I think you are being a tad hard on the ladies, Dexter. Don’t forget they did two years in jail on a total humbug. They were picked up the other day on a bogus charge of having stolen something at their hotel. They are very much a part of what is happening in Kiev. Our local station won’t even mention Pussy Riot. It just refers to members of a rock band.

  27. brian stouder said on February 19, 2014 at 12:11 pm

    And really, ‘Pussy Riot’ is much less misleading than (for example) the ‘New Orleans Saints Cheerleaders’, in terms of truth-in-labeling…

  28. LAMary said on February 19, 2014 at 12:18 pm

    Did you see the two women from Pussy Riot on Steven Colbert? I was impressed.

  29. Connie said on February 19, 2014 at 12:43 pm

    Nancy, I have picked up that the Bridge is doing a story about Sugar Loaf Ski Resort, the abandoned ski slopes of my younger years. Ownership has been a complicated story and recent news reports still seem confused, complicated by the failure of the proposed snow board resort. I will be very interested in seeing what the Bridge has to day.

    mark – what would you have the president do?

  33. Dexter said on February 19, 2014 at 3:07 pm

    Ah, I’m just sick of Pussy Riot. I watched that doc on cable about them. They seem like yesterday’s news to me…remember how The Dixie Chicks (well, Natalie, anyway) spoke up and were admonished into obscurity and band-break-up? Natalie’s message was as strong as Pussy Riot’s. So Pussy Riot gets on a rooftop of a government building and begins prancing and banging out their message set to horrible guitar playing, get arrested, thrown in jail, get sprung, parents get interviewed, process repeated. They don’t like Putin. WE FUCKING GET IT. Now shut the fuck up.

  34. mark said on February 19, 2014 at 3:25 pm

    Brian,

    For starters he might avoid ambiguous dictates like “There will be consequences if people step over the line”, particularly in light of the trouble similar remarks caused him in Syria.

    He has a professional State Department; he should use it and let them issue statements and draft remarks for him.

  35. Dexter said on February 19, 2014 at 3:32 pm

    The Cossacks can’t stop Pussy Riot. More sensationalist news:

  36. brian stouder said on February 19, 2014 at 3:47 pm

    particularly in light of the trouble similar remarks caused him in Syria.

    What trouble?

    Do you mean when the president spoke of a “red line”, and this got the Russians’ attention, and a disarmament deal got made?

    Even assuming “the deal” is messy and imperfect (at best), or that at some point it will be seen to be simply dead – we can strike targets in that country anytime the president chooses to; that threat remains.

    But the war we’re not in, in Syria, and the deal we have in hand – looks a great deal like the best possible current status, at this time.

    Regarding your Valentine’s day posting, I thought Ryan and Arianna were doing something unusual, but the emotions were real. Good for them. I’m a softie, maybe. That’s what happens to high school cynics 60 years later. (Check my high school yearbook, The 1954 “Periauger” of Dobbs Ferry High School if you think I’m kidding. I was considered the cynic of the class.)

  38. Deborah said on February 19, 2014 at 5:25 pm

    I have to admit we had a nice day in Chicago. Sunny and 43 right now. Why can’t I stop talking about the weather?

    Had lunch with a good friend. Things are OK, I can so this for awhile. About to go out again and enjoy it while I can.

  39. LAMary said on February 19, 2014 at 6:40 pm

    After sitting at my desk since 7:30 am and not going farther than the ladies room across the hall for 7 hours, I just took a walk outside. I got commandeered into escorting a lost hospital visitor (something that I seem to get commandeered into doing every day and that’s fine) and we walked across the gardens to get to his destination. It’s about 65, slight breeze, and mostly sunny outside. Friggin perfect. Even the cranky lost hospital visitor commented on how beautiful a day it is.

  40. Minnie said on February 19, 2014 at 10:20 pm

    Up to 59 here in SE Virginia. Sunny skies, driving around with windows open. Husband took a kayak out this afternoon.

    Everything under the garden blanket (red Russian kale, chard, beets, mesclun) has survived what nature has offered the last several weeks – rare to us, single digit temperatures and several snow falls.

    I know it won’t last, but it surely seems like Spring. Perhaps the unstable weather enforces that thought. We’re going to a house concert on Friday evening. It will be in a big tent with sides and a heater in the host’s back yard. Forecast: thunderstorms.
