Miscellany

  • Just hung up the phone after an excellent conversation with Paul of the Politics and Guns Podcast and his buddy Toby. We slaughtered a few sacred cows today. (They make the best hamburger!) The podcast airs next week, and I’m already cringing at the thought of the hate mail we’re gonna get.
  • Joel at the Ultimate Answer to Kings made a good point. Too short to quote, so you’ll have to go read this.
  • Related: John Farnam famously advises, “Don’t go to stupid places, associate with stupid people, do stupid things.” Fighting with other consumers in a Black Friday feeding frenzy pretty much fits all three categories.
  • There’s a Save Tam’s Schnozz update at Jay’s place. Still time to jump in on some of the raffles, and it’s for a good cause.
  • Congratulations to the winners of the raffles at Nobody Asked Me. I hope you enjoy your books and the primary goodies too.  :)

Looks like that’s about it for now. I’m working on a couple of longer pieces which may be up by Monday — if everything goes well. Hope you and your are enjoying a wonderful holiday weekend.

    I paraphrase John into: “Play Stupid games, win stupid prizes.”

    For a ray of sunshine check out the story behind the “Man Punched in Face” story.

    It’s too bad that when you slaughter sacred cows, you don’t get any steak out of the deal. A few filet mignons might compensate for the hate mail… :-)

    Can’t wait to hear the show, though. I’m a big believer in tackling those sacred cows. After all, as my father likes to say, no matter what you want to be true, wish was true, or believe to be true, at the end of the day reality generally wins.

    Thanks again Kathy for coming on the show! Looking forward to the next time!
