3 Sentences - Bloody Pleased



Now and forever
 a bloodline branch of among the oldest, most powerful Western world-wide empires will be, in part, African. That's worth quite a bit, a royal family opting to disassemble in a day some ages-old rigid and toxic stratification.

(And, please:  it's hardly as if the $42M some on the congenitally-dour far Left whine about were thieved from their own pet projects.)

Mask of The Red Death

Reporting that the FBI had an informant talking to Page, Papadopoulos, and Clovis very early in the investigation has created the spy meme. Hmmm.

Something I Found Looking for a Blue Snowball

I've been shopping for a computer webcam and microphone.  It's been an interesting adventure spurred by the finding that my accessibility software now allows one to use a webcam with a flexible stand in place of a separate closed circuit television for looking at documents, prescription labels and a lot of other things.  The company sells a package of a pretty good webcam and stand with the option of a couple of different bases.  However, i would like a webcam suitable, also, for recording…

Nothing says, "Let's try to deescalate this conflict" and that I have respect for YOUR religion and culture like killing the unarmed civilians that your snipers missed by dropping bombs on them from American bought and paid for F-16s...

Egypt hit out at Israel on Friday for killing civilians in Gaza with 'oppressive policies of mass punishment', while urging the international community to act quickly to end the conflict
