Port of Baltimore has limited reopening

by Borepatch in Borepatch at 15:14, Tuesday, 23 April

Lots and lots of restrictions, but ships 60,000 tons or less and 30' draft will be able to pass through a new restricted channel into and out of the harbor.

My whole online life revolves around my smartphone. Since sometime in 2017 I’ve been using a secondhand iPhone that was getting pretty worn out and I was getting worried. Then early last year Big Brother texted me out of the blue and said he was sending me his old iPhone, which was still substantially newer than mine. I said “okay.”

And all was well until this morning, when the phone just bricked for no apparent reason during an update.

UPDATED TO ADD: I have recently posted a draft of my paper, “Articulating The Standard Model of Explaining the Irrationality of Defensive Gun Ownership,” on the open-access site SocArXiv. I don’t have time, energy, or a venue to publish this paper, so this may forever be the reference edition. Enjoy it!

...

This is the next edition in my repository post on what I am calling The Master Narrative of Democracy Destroying Right-Wing Gun Culture, the dominant paradigm in the interdisciplinary academic field of gun studies (and as a key organizing idea in the wider culture).

This narrative complements The Standard Model of Explaining the Irrationality of Defensive Gun Ownership. Maybe someday I will be able to merge these two components of the dominant approach to understanding guns in the United States into one Grand Theory.

First, read a bit about scientific paradigms generally and then get to the growing list specific works after the Thomas Kuhn book cover.

I just read an article about Glenn Campbell on the anniversary of his birthday. And while I don’t actually give him much thought a linked video to Wichita Lineman made me chuckle to myself. The song was ubiquitous on the radio when I was in my mid-teens and the second verse made no sense to me at all…

I know I need a small vacation
But it don’t look like rain
And if it snows that stretch down south
Won’t ever stand the strain…

That just sounded like a list of non sequiturs to me at the time. Listening to it many years later it made perfect sense – “I’d like a day off but that won’t happen because it isn’t going to rain. But it might snow, and if it does I’m gonna be busier than ever. In the snow.”

Just a reminder of what a thick oaf I was in my teens. Not that I got a lot smarter as I grew up, but life as a working man will tattoo reality on your bones whether you welcome it or not.

Quote of The Day

While many say that it’s more dangerous for a woman to arm herself, the reality is that women are less likely to defend themselves in the first place. A 2007 study shows that 53% of women who were victims of violent crimes were still unwilling to carry a firearm.

I’m reminded of a debate I once had with a young woman who insisted private gun ownership is a bad idea. Her topic knowledge was near zero but she is very smart. It was amazing the things she came up with for “reasons” for her position. She came up with multiple things I had never heard or thought of before. All based on her on the spot creativity. I had over 25 years of debate experience on the topic and she was making me think. I felt I was holding my own pretty well until she claimed (paraphrasing as best as I can remember):

At the TacCon presenter's dinner this year, Andy Stanford passed out SureFire Stilettos to attendees as door prizes.


When the Stiletto was introduced, it was very much the flavor of the month and all the cool kids used them for a bit before moving on to whatever the next awesome light was. I am very much an uncool kid and I stuck with my trusty EDCL2-T, which I'd been using since they were introduced back in '17.

I stuck with that 2-cell light until a few months back when I downsized to its single-cell EDCL1-T cousin as part of a general pocket clutter shrinkage project: Sabre Red Mk.6 to a POM dispenser, Spyderco Delica to a Spyderco Dragonfly, et cetera. Since doing so, I haven't found myself feeling limited by the single cell light's 500-lumen output. It's still plenty if your job doesn't include nighttime traffic stops and clearing structures.

The Stiletto is roughly the same size as the single-cell EDCL, but nice and flat and more comfortable in the pocket.

The Albuquerque Police Department was called to investigate separate fatal shootings late Friday and Saturday morning, including one in which a young man allegedly killed his mother’s ex-boyfriend in self-defense.

APD spokesperson Franchesca Perdue said the Saturday shooting is being investigated as a justifiable homicide.

Walkie snapshots…

by Joel in The Ultimate Answer to Kings at 10:18, Tuesday, 23 April

Neighbor D had a health setback yesterday, which disrupted my plans to go to the biggish town about 35 miles away and shop for (groceries and) a holster for the Arex. Poor me, right? Having typed that first sentence I should probably go flagellate myself or something, but in truth Neighbor D’s health setbacks have been a constant of life here at the Gulch for over six months and so while yes I’m sad and weary over it the truth is that lowgrade sadness and weariness used to be fairly constant emotional states for me and you just sort of unthinkingly get on with life in spite of it. So give me a break. First-world problems are also problems, just not of first importance.

So since there’s nothing I can actually do about my friend’s deteriorating health, what I’m doing right now is coming down from the morning walkie on a beautiful Spring day with not a cloud in the sky, during which I really wished I’d brought a proper camera. If I were a philosopher-king I’d write a treatise or something and neatly sort it all out. But I’m just a gimpy old guy walking his dog at the beginning of a nice day, and that’s as neat as it gets ...

Turn Indicators

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 10:02, Tuesday, 23 April

 My '01 F150 still starts and runs.  With almost a quarter-million miles, it has proven to be fairly reliable. I run a Honda Odyssey as my daily driver, but the truck it there if I need a truck. the old Ford fits the bill.  Recently I was driving it, and noticed that the left turn indicator wasn't working.   Reflecting on the last time I had to change bulbs, those might be factory bulbs in the truck.

This morning, I went out to diagnose the problem and learned that the problem was the front left bulb. Tinkering with things in the cab, running carious lights and looking at the rest of the bulbs on the truck, I noticed that the turn indicator seemed to be working. Odd.  I ran some more tests, walked around the truck ooking at lights, and for some reason that turn indicator seems to be working.

Or, I might have an intermittent problem, which drives mechanics and electricians crazy. It probably wouldn't be a bad idea to go ahead and change that bulb, and give the bulb socket a little TLC while I have it apart.

I decided to try out the Jose Dominquez Signature Series Gigante that had been sitting in my humidor since last August when it arrived as part of the monthly Luxury Cigar Club package.


The monterous 6 x 60 stick features an Honduran Connecticut, a Sumatran binder, with Dominican and USA Broadleaf fillers. The large size and Connecticut wrapper, both features are outside my favored preferences, led the cigar to sit for the last eight months. I combined the cigar with a cold tea.

Happy Pesach

by Glenn B in BALLSEYE'S BOOMERS at 19:42, Monday, 22 April

 Passover or Pesach begins just after sunset this evening and runs through the 30th as I understand. In these troubled times for way too many of the Jewish faith, I wish a happy and peaceful Passover to all who celebrate it. Enjoy the Seders tonight and tomorrow evening. More about Pesach at the source.
 
All the best,
Glenn B 

The term in the headline was first applied, I think, to the strongly Pentecostal roving brush arbor preachers of the Great Awakening in the States back in the early 1800s – whom Westerners referred to as “sky pilots.” It was picked up by “knights of the road” (hobos) and the dispossessed and displaced of the Dirty Thirties. It poked fun at these iterant preachers – mostly scam artists – who made a living by preaching about “giving to God” (meaning, in the preacher’s contribution basket) would reap wonderful benefits in heaven after death.

Politicians, of course, have been preaching a version of this for millennia – especially here in the States. Taxes now mean big wealth and other benefits sometime in the future. Soviet communism pushed this idea: their ideal of international socialism was to end in the wondrous glories and benefits of “true” communism sometime in the future when the “state” withered away.

Sadly, even some libertarian (self-proclaimed, at least) activists and advocates have behaved similarly: do away with the omnipresent ...

A while back, BSU's president wanted BSU to be known as a metropolitan university of distinction or some similar rotgut.  I think I am seeing evidence they are moving up in the world.


I was picking up prescriptions at the pharmacy today and there was a car plastered with Israel genocide rhetoric. I was going to photograph it on my way out, but a pink-haired girl (and no, not a bad red dye) was getting in the passenger side and I did not think it wise.  The driver of course had green hair.

In the 1960s, my father was an opponent of the Vietnam War when most Americans were still saying, "Where?". We were watching an antiwar protest on TV and my father's reaction was that these people would get a lot further with their efforts if they were not dressed weirdly with long hair.

Came home to check the news.  Trumps trial started today.  The one in New York, where he paid off a hooker.  Damned shame when you can't trust a hooker to keep her mouth shut.

I ordered some match .22LR ammo yesterday.  Two bricks were over $100,  I haven't bought much .22 ammo in a while, but I seem to recall that a brick of good ammo, down at the Feed and Seed, was about $20.  That's been a few years ago.  And, I am paying shipping on this order, so that adds to the unit cost.  Still, that's about 12 cents per shot, so that ain't as bad as I've seen it.

 It looks like the idea of cancers caused by the covid shots is not just fearmongering or anecdotal.  A study out of Japan entitled: Increased age adjusted cancer mortality after the third mRNA lipid nanoparticle vaccine dose during the COVID pandemic in Japan has finally been published.

Patients are now dying at a higher rate from cancer than they should be.

According to Dr. Angus Dalgleish, the reason is the boosters, which were both unnecessary and harmful.  He rang the alarm bell when patients who were in remission all of a sudden had active cases of melanoma again. And there were statistically more cases of other types of cancers that manifested after the patient being boosted.

From the study itself it looks like there are several factors at play including the fact that the mRNA in the shots was artificially stabilized--it doe...

When Caleb Giddings, marketing manager at Taurus USA, recommended that I try a new revolver, the 605 Executive Grade in 357 Magnum, I balked a bit. Frankly, some revolvers of late advertised for everyday carry (EDC) have been difficult for me to manipulate – thanks to excessive double-action trigger pulls of 12 pounds and more. He told me he thought I should try it, and that really, this one was different.

The Most Beautiful Lily

by Sheila Stokes in The Zelman Partisans at 03:06, Monday, 22 April

You know, it’s been my observation that the ones that hate communism the most, are the ones that actually know what it is. Not the pig ignorant college students that are running around the streets acting like moneys flinging poop at the zoo. The Russians and Ukrainians I’ve met have a very strong conservative streak, all were supporters of President Trump, and most were strong Second Amendment supporters. Years ago there was a Demoncrat member of the House of Reps in my state, he spoke every year at the Second Amendment rally held in the spring. He had a very compelling presentation. He and his family had come here from Germany and shortly after arriving here had some untoward experiences. One of the first things he did as soon as he was legally able was to purchase a gun. He was a free citizen now you see, he was a free citizen and he was entitled to defend his life and that of his family. Of course that was years ago, when common sense, values, principles and decency were on both sides of the aisle. When Demoncrats waved American, not Ukrainian flags, when they were concerned about, not even more concerned, just concerned, about America’s borders more than another country’s. A...

A Golden Age of Vaccines

Wow! If true, this is fascinating.

Universal vaccine may be effective against any variant of any virus (msn.com)

Scientists at the University of California, Riverside (UCR) has recently developed a revolutionary RNA-based strategy for a universal vaccine capable of combating any virus strain effectively and safely – even in infants and the immunocompromised. This innovative approach could transform how vaccines are developed and administered across the globe.

This could significantly reduce the threat from bio terrorists. And of course the more natural deadly threats like Marburg, Ebola, Hantavirus, HIV, etc..

You Have Ten Years or Less

by Joe in The View From North Central Idaho at 18:41, Sunday, 21 April

I don’t have much confidence in economic forecasts, but here is one anyway:

Here’s why economists are so worried about soaring US debt levels (msn.com)

Technically, the government could print money to pay off its dues, but that would result in hyperinflation as the money supply skyrockets.

Robust economic growth can make debt more sustainable, but the debt is growing way faster than the economy — the national debt balance rose 86% over the last decade, while GDP grew by 63%, according to Fed data.

Economists are uncertain of when exactly the national debt will become a true problem for the US. If the pace of borrowing doesn’t slow, Rubin anticipates a crisis of some sort materializing within the next decade.

You are doubtless aware of student exchange programs that give foreigners a chance to live in America for a while.  I have watched several exchange students react to America and it has been interesting.  So this 4/31/24 Fox News article intrigued me:

"Shattering stereotypes with every swap, a groundbreaking exchange program is offering kids from red and blue states a free ticket to explore the diverse landscapes of America, and challenge any misconceptions they might have about places far from home.

"It's kind of hard to say no to a free trip, but I had this obsession with just seeing everywhere I can, especially parts of the country. It's amazing to see, especially the Midwest," Z.J. Schwartz, a program alum from California, told "Fox & Friends Weekend."

Many of our readers are of an age to remember the actor Efron Zimbalist, Jr, who starred in "The F.B.I." among other TV shows (I particularly like 77 Sunset Strip), or his daughter Stephanie (star of "Remington Steele).  Few have ever heard of his father Efron Zimbalist, Sr. - who like Louis XIII was famous only for Louis XIV.  But he was a famous violinist in the early years of the 20th century and a prolific composer.

This recording is far from HiFi, but gives a flavor of his work.  I found it quite enjoyable.

I wasn't in the mood to sit on the cold porch Friday evening, so I headed over to the Olde Towne Tobacconist outpost at 1781 Brewing. I was hoping the cool-again weather wouldn't keep other folks away. When I arrived the parking lot was busy and I realized there was live music this evening. Unfortunately I wouldn't hear the music from inside the lounge, but again, I wasn't desirous of sitting in the cold.


After filling my mug with 1781's delicious Winter Bock, I went over to the lounge. I grabbed an Intergalactic by Black Works Studio, and picked my seat near the door to see passersby, but close enough to the wood stove to stay warm.

Debt Jubilee? No!

by Joe in The View From North Central Idaho at 09:00, Sunday, 21 April

Quote of the Day

A debt jubilee is certainly appealing to debtors and those who see the cliff ahead, but recall that all debt is an asset that is holding up an asset class far larger than the debt itself: mortgage debt is what props up the entire global real estate market, and what happens to valuations when debt ceases to exist?

Those who see jubilee as a solution also tend to ignore that all this debt is an asset of which 90% is owned by the wealthy class who run the status quo. Every bond, every mortgage-backed security and every bundled student loan / auto loan is an asset owned by someone or some entity who depends on that asset and its income stream for their wealth and thus their political power.

To hazard a guess based on human history, the wealthy / powerful will probably not be too keen to surrender the vast majority of their wealth and thus their power in the laudable pursuit of eliminating all debt and starting over.

Elsewhere on social media I came across an angry and despairing rant from a Columbine High School graduate whose younger sister was there on that day. The sister was unhurt, thanks to hiding in a closet, but it was all day before they learned that, since she was one of the last students to get out of the school and get bused to the rendezvous point at the nearby elementary school to be reunited with her parents.


The woman, in her angry reminiscences, was like "...but thank god that the Columbine shooters didn't have AR-15s, because things would have been worse..." with the implication that they were somehow illegal at the time.

I didn't have the heart to explain that they were plenty legal and the only reason they weren't used is that they were kinda spendy in those days and not as popular.

Preserving Chicken Eggs, by Mrs. Alaska

by SurvivalBlog Contributor in SurvivalBlog.com at 03:03, Sunday, 21 April

Egg laying is partially predicated on the season. Our hens, of various breeds, are always most prolific layers in the summer months. In the autumn, when they molt (shed their feathers and grow new ones) they do not lay at all for 6 to 8 weeks. During the cold winter months in Alaska, they shiver in the chilly coop, laying maybe half as often as in the summer. It is only in March, when we have 12 hours of daylight, that they venture out into the snow and start to lay regularly again. Therefore, I learned various ways to save …
