SOUTH ROYALTON — Vermont Law School plans to paint over a mural in its student center that highlights Vermont’s role in the Underground Railroad and the abolitionist movement after members of the law school community objected to its depictions of African Americans and said it made some people uncomfortable.

VLS President and Dean Thomas McHenry said in a schoolwide email this week that students and alumni had raised concerns about the mural in the Chase Community Center, which was painted by Vermont-based artist Sam Kerson in 1993 with the school’s blessing, even winning recognition from The Christian Science Monitor at the time.

I find it artistically offensive but heaven forbid we portray a proud moment of blacks and whites working together to remove a dark stain from our history.


Globus Sensation

by Clayton Cramer in Clayton Cramer. at 23:23, Monday, 13 July

This has been a recurring nuisance since a bihemispheric stroke in 2015.  If you are familiar with it, it feels like a ball in your throat that makes talking difficult and uncomfortable.  It makes me very nervous in public speaking.

While I consider acupuncture and Chinese medicine a bit too spooky and irrational to take seriously, this article sounds like a good reason to try.

Background: Acupuncture points are commonly used by Traditional Chinese Medicine to treat throat discomfort. Transcutaneous electroacupuncture (TEA) is a new therapy combining transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation with meridian theory. The efficacy and mechanism of Transcutaneous electroacupuncture for globus pharyngeus has not been reported. The aim of our study was to explore the effect and possible mechanisms of TEA at CV22/LI3/LU11/...

Via email from Rolf:

I know that several boomershooters use the 6.5 Grendel. I was having problems, and suspect a rough chamber might be the culprit. (Still awaiting a reply from Midway, where I bought the upper, as it’s a MidwayUSA house brand, before I do anything like home gunsmithing). I went looking for a chamber hone that would be right, and could not find one, and saw contradictory info on the web. So I emailed the company (Brush Research) that makes the Flex-Hone chamber hones to ask what the correct one might be. I got this prompt reply this morning. I’m pretty sure that they’d be OK with posting the info on a popular shooting-related web-site such as yours, if you want to post it for any of the Grendel shooters out there who might want to know.

Voter Registrations

by Clayton Cramer in Clayton Cramer. at 08:05, Monday, 13 July

In at least five battleground states, Democrats appear to have borne the brunt of the damage during the COVID-shutdown period.

In Maine, for example, 59 percent of new voters registered as Dems pre-coronavirus — but only 40 percent have done so in the months since.

Dem declines were also seen in Colorado, Florida, North Carolina and Pennsylvania, TargetSmart found.

Additionally, in the swing state of Iowa, the new voters helped the GOP retake the statewide lead in voter registrations last month, Politico reported.

The new voters who did manage to send in applications were older and whiter than those who had been recruited before the pandemic hit. Voters in those demographic groups are expected to break for President Trump, rather than for Democratic Party nominee Joe Biden, in November.

The first sign came with one of the most powerful black directors in Hollywood, Oscar-winning Jordan Peele – the man behind box office hits such as Get Out and Us – stated in public that he did not want to hire a leading man who was white. 

'I don't see myself casting a white dude as the lead in my movie,' Peele said. 'Not that I don't like white dudes. But I've seen that movie before.'

As one studio executive responded privately: 'If a white director said that about hiring a black actor, their career would be over in a heartbeat.' Few doubt it.

Quote of the day—Moa

by Joe in The View From North Central Idaho at 06:00, Monday, 13 July

They are not ‘liberals’. They are Leftists. The same people who slaughtered over 100 million of their fellows citizens in the last century once the Leftists gained unchallenged power.

Of course, the reason the Left has been working for decades to disarm you is so they can send the leftist-controlled mob to kill you and loot what you worked so hard for. Which means this is all well premeditated.

The Left are not accidentally incompetent, they are not confused, they are not mistaken. They are evil. You are their enemy and they will lie about their intentions until you are defenseless and then they can reveal what they really want to do to you and your family.

Issues with Weapon Mounted Lights

by Greg Ellifritz in Active Response Training at 03:54, Monday, 13 July

Written by: Greg Ellifritz


I spent all of last week attending Massad Ayoob and Marty Hayes’ Deadly Force Instructor class as a student.  We spent some time discussing the use of weapon mounted lights and the safety concerns associated with them.


It caused me to realize that I haven’t written about this topic in more than six years.  I’ve changed some of my views on the topic over that time frame, so I thought it would be useful to provide my readers with an update.


The primary issues we see in media reporting are when people using weapon-mounted lights accidentally shoot someone when they mistakenly pull the trigger when they intend to turn on the light for illumination.


For years there has been a constant stream of high level media “reporting” about the so called “dangers” of weapon mounted lights (WMLs).   Check out the links below for some examples:

I don't really track precious metals pricing intently. I keep a very small stash, mostly as a pro forma thing. Adolescent me who read doomsday stuff, fictional and otherwise, knows you're supposed to have some for TEOTWAWKI.

So I keep my inner kid happy with a small stash even though I know that canned food and a few cases of 7.62x39 or 5.56 would be far better barter goods in any situation where I'd have to swap things for stuff in a post-apocalyptic flea market.

At any rate, I idly wandered by the online precious metals vendor I occasionally patronize and noted that silver is still generally tracking along that price plateau it's been riding since mid last year, up a few bucks from the trough it had been in earlier last year. Huh. Wonder what gold looks like. Let's click over and and...yowza!

The Omni: Llama’s Fancy Upscale Pistol…Attempt

by Ian McCollum in Forgotten Weapons at 06:27, Monday, 13 July

Llama was never the most prestigious of the three major Spanish pistol makers, and in the 1980s they decided to have a try at an upscale new pistol. The design was done by an American, Gary Wilhelm, who worked with the Stoeger company (which was Llama’s US importer). The gun was offered in both .45 ACP and 9mm Parabellum, with the 9mm version offering a semi-double-stack 12 round magazine. The gun has a very complex fire control system, with rollers, ball bearings, and dual trigger bars for single and double action. It was also very expensive, costing some $600 when new (nearly double the price of many comparable pistols, like the S&W Model 39). It was only in production from 1982 until 1986, and was by all definitions a commercial flop. The less-than-elegant lines, cost, complexity, and Llama’s generally poor reputation combined to quickly sink it.

Ooops!  Death rate clicked up from the WuFlu.

Now you show symptoms after exposure in 5 or 6 days, but you die of it 4-6 weeks later, ifn you are gonna die from it.  So, coincidentally, 4-6 weeks ago was when mass riots got going. 

"But what about all the re-openings, T-Bolt?"

Didn't a bunch of those re-openings start happening long before the riots?  I guess people are more careful at the barber than they are yanking down a statue of James Madison or Frederick Douglas.

Show Notes

Main Topic:

Women’s Outdoor News and Avery Skipalis bring you a video about inspecting your firearm. Inspecting your firearm is another aspect of firearm ownership that’s often overlooked and viewed as a chore. In the second video of our series, we talked about the importance of firearm maintenance and listed a few things  to which you should pay attention. Now we’re moving on to firearm inspection.

Failure Mode

by Tam in View From The Porch at 19:50, Sunday, 12 July

Locally, here in Eastern Daylight Time, the broadcast network Sunday morning political talking head shows run more or less consecutively.

First is ABC's This Week With George Stephanopoulos at nine, then switch over to NBC for Meet the Press, and then finally cut over to the CBS affiliate at eleven for the last half hour of Face the Nation.

So, this morning the schedule for This Week is pretty typical. Several different interviews make up the first part of the show, then there's a brief data-oriented segment with Nate Silver of FiveThirtyEight.com (apparently added to This Week after ABC bought FiveThirtyEight from ESPN, its crunchy data & graphics an obvious response to the "Data Download" segment Chuck Todd added to MTP after he took over as host.) The final segment of the show is a panel discussion, with four guests and Stephanopoulos.

Today, as they were coming off the commercial break after the FiveThirtyEight segment and into the panel, there was a distinct absence of audio...not even background noise...and George was staring off into the distance.

He fidgeted a bit in dead silence....


…it felt hotter yesterday because I was out in the sun longer. Today just feels like July, so, y’know, of course it’s hot. No need to be a pussy about it. Yesterday felt like an ordeal by sun, even though by now it had clouded up and cooled off a bit.

Water Heater Done…

by Joel in The Ultimate Answer to Kings at 11:24, Sunday, 12 July

Now all I need is the glass, which to be safe is a 2-man job.

This should exactly double the output, which basically means I can get 1.5 big buckets of hot water instead of 3/4 of one – and that’s enough for dishwashing AND a bath any time the sun’s shining. Luxury!

Right now the temperature is dependent on both the sun and the wind, so I’m very interested to see how much more dependable it gets when the cover’s on.

So Ian dropped by yesterday…

Mask Mandte

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 13:36, Sunday, 12 July

Yesterday, Louisiana's petty tyrant, John Bel Edwards, ordered a mask mandate for all of Louisiana until further notice.  He said, on multiple occasions, that he has been very patient with us. 

With covid cases climbing, this seems to be the only course of action that he's willing to take.  Of course, he puts the onus on business, to enforce his mandate.  As he explained it, the business must insist that every customer wear a mask.  IF the customer reuses, the business will ask the customer to leave  If the customer refuses to leave, then the customer is trespassing.

He also closed the bars, because, you know, bars are evil dens of iniquity and purveyors of infection.

Truly, all he is doing is pissing people off.  Those of us who believe in masks war them.  Those who don't believe in masks don't wear them.  The governor, who uses the  unchecked, raw power of his office to force Louisiana into bending to his will serves no one.  The governor's use of his raw, unchecked power to favor one business over another does not serve th...

A thought...

in Of Arms and the Law at 21:04, Saturday, 11 July

With all the boycotts and other reprisals against people who "voted the wrong way" in 2016 or have stated their intent to do the same in 2020,

42 U.S. Code §1985(3) provides:

"...if two or more persons conspire to prevent by force, intimidation, or threat, any citizen who is lawfully entitled to vote, from giving his support or advocacy in a legal manner, toward or in favor of the election of any lawfully qualified person as an elector for President or Vice President, or as a Member of Congress of the United States; or to injure any citizen in person or property on account of such support or advocacy ... the party so injured or deprived may have an action for the recovery of damages occasioned by such injury or deprivation, against any one or more of the conspirators."

§1985 was enacted as one of the Reconstruction-era "anti-Klan" Acts. Boycotts, of course, have some First Amendment protections. The decision to boycott someone is a personal choice. Advocacy of the boycott is generally First Amendment protected. Its protection may be reduced (haven't researched it) if the boycott is punish someone else's exercise of federally-protected rights. But where th...

We have found a great dog park here in Florida, and I take Wolfgang first thing in the morning when it's still cool.  He gets to play with the other pups, but then takes a lot of the day to recover from the heat.  It's not like Maryland, where mornings would be high sixty or low seventy degrees - it's low to mid eighties even early.

Nothing New Under The Sun

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 16:32, Saturday, 11 July

I was aimlessly clicking around You Tube this afternoon and came upon a Colion Noit video about the Army's new M-18 pistol, a variant of the Sig P320.  I wasn't aware that the Army was looking for a new handgun.  But, I never liked the M-9.

I was on active duty during Desert Storm when the Army took my 19111 nd gave me a bright, shine new Beretta M-9, right out of the box.  I wasn't impressed.  But, they told me to carry it, so I did.

Now it seems the Army has acquired a new pistol, and Colion was talking about the short slide and the regular sized frame, and said that people were asking him how it compared to the new Glock 19X.  19X? Whatthehell?  So I Googled it and found that the new Glock 19X combines the slide of the 19 with the frame of the 17, making it what they call a "crossover" pistol.  Shorter slide married to a full-size frame, and this is something new?

A shorter slide on a regular frame?  Where have I heard that before?  Oh, I remember, in 1950, Colt came out with something they ...

That Flagpole Was so Racist!

WASHINGTONVILLE, N.Y. - Police in New York have launched an investigation after a flagpole at a memorial honoring five firefighters who died in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks was cut down by vandals.

The damage at the patriotic display in Washingtonville, north of New York City, was discovered early Wednesday, according to the Times-Herald Record.

Police are refusing to say what the slogan was painted on it.

4/13/20 Newsweek describes a series of racist threats and attacks at the University of La Verne:
All the cases remained unsolved—until March 9, 2020. After nearly a year of investigations involving multiple agencies, the LVPD said at a press conference that Dominguez Peña, 25, had faked the threats against herself and others in ten total separate "incidents." The same day, she was arrested on felony charges of making criminal threats and perjury, as well as seven misdemeanors related to electronic impersonation and filing false police reports.

Over at Bayou Renaissance Man, there is a comment that deserves to win the Internet for the day. Scroll down to "Unidentified Victim"'s comment of tips garnered from police and/or escape and evasion driving schools. Some of the better ones you may not have picked up:

  • When you get in your vehicle the FIRST thing you do is step on the brake, start the engine, put it in drive and take the parking brake off. Seat belts, putting your purse somewhere, diddling with mirrors and radio, begging the kids to put their seat belts on, etc...

It’s true that Thomas Jefferson and some of the other Founding Fathers, including George Washington, failed in extending the benefits of Liberty to all – that cannot and should not be denied.

That’s what those tearing down monuments, the totalitarian-minded purveyors of universal slavery, are really trying to destroy. [...

Brett Young - In Case You Didn't Know

by Borepatch in Borepatch at 07:16, Saturday, 11 July

There aren't many things that can make me sound like a grumpy old codger faster than listening to the new country music.  I'm not a fan.  Blast it all - those dang kids are back on my lawn ...

But The Queen Of The World is the Angel of my Better Nature, and she pointed out this song.  You see, she loves it, and that made me want to listen to it.  It reminds me a lot of the Allison Kraus version of "When You Say Nothing At All".  And suddenly I find that those dang kids only went onto my lawn to mow the grass.  They even bagged the clippings.

Brett Young was an up and coming College baseball pitcher when an injury put that career track on hold.  With time unexpectedly on his hands he took up songwriting.  This was from his first album in 2017, and it went triple platinum.  Clearly, The Queen Of The World and I were not the only fans.

Yeah, the new country music isn't often very good, but when it's good it's very good indeed.


Yet more Professional Journalism

An NBC medical expert who was brought on air nearly a dozen times to detail his struggle with COVID-19 never had the virus, he revealed this week.

After believing he had the coronavirus in spite of getting negative tests, virologist and NBC News science contributor Dr. Joseph Fair tweeted Tuesday that he had tested negative for the antibodies and that the illness that hospitalized him in May "remains an undiagnosed mystery." Steve Krakauer reported on the developments for his Fourth Watch newsletter.
Today host Hoda Kotb noted during the interview that Fair had received four negative tests for the virus but said, "clearly you have it." Fellow host Craig Melvin called Fair's "false negative" tests "scary," and cohost Savannah Guthrie called it a "cautionary tale."

It is not transcendently stupid for the alleged anti-racism rioters to destroy a Lincoln statue, though, to normal people, it looks like the act of drooling morons. Now, a good number of these cesspeople are drooling morons, but that does not change the fact that trashing POTUS #16’s statuary is brilliant.

They have confused their targets – us – by casting off the constraints of coherence.

Oh wait, you thought that these folks were trying to make a point about racism being bad. And you thought, because that’s how those of us who weren’t raised on Instatwitbook, soy, and critical race theory, that if you point out that something is unreasonable then that will cause the person you were instructing to rethink it. After all, trashing some Honest Abe totem in order to illustrate how racism is double-plus-ungood is about a “12” on the 1-10 scale of unreasonability. And yet, you can point that out all day and they don’t care.

In fact, they laugh at you for doing so.
