something fishy, this way comes

Heads up!

Two years ago I sneaked into the expansion of the WesternBEEF and got excited about it here:

Later CTT chronicled the arrival of the insulated wall sections here:

I’m amused by simple things.

But now it’s done and stocked and opened!

And the long awaited fish counter is fantastic.

There is a terrific breadth of stock at the moment, all fresh and looking really good.

But the fish we don’t purchase won’t be reordered. :-(

The prices are from 1980! $6 salmon. $9 lobster. $7 jumbo shrimp. It doesn’t get much better than this.

And it doesn’t get much fresher either.

There’s only one way I know to get it fresher.

Senator Entabulator

from the interwebz:
“Many years ago, Rockwell International decided to get into the heavy-duty automatic transmission business. They were getting ready to tape their first introductory video. As a warm up, the stage crew began what has become a legend within the training industry. 

This stagehand should have won an academy award for his stellar performance. Keep in mind, this is strictly off the cuff, nothing is written down.”

Nothing he says is true. He had no script. 

This was a rehearsal for camera, lighting and stage crew.
It's all total meaningless drivel made up as he goes along.”



Canadian Superior Court has ruled a man must pay, despite a DNA test revealing three of “his” four children are not his.

He asked for testing and learned that of his son and daughters aged 12, 14, and 16, only the 9 year old son is actually his.

His wife then told him his three daughters were all fathered by different men.

He said he suspected his wife had cheated on him.

“I was naive ... 
I never thought I could not be the father of my children,”
he said.

yer killing me

The success of presidential policy in the court of the common man is based on popularity, not feasibility or even justification.

Bush and Cheney had good reason, in their view at least, to torture foreign operatives if it yielded safety for American lives. So they waterboarded.

And we crucified him for it.

Now comes the President on the heels of his reelection with a real doozy. His legal team says it is now lawful for him to give an order to kill an American citizen without the due process guaranteed under the 5th and 14th Amendments. Say what? 

No constitutional rights at all, no judge, no trial or conviction, just Barack, the executioner.

And not just him, either, 
“any informed high level official.”

How is this even possible?

It must meet just three criteria.
  1. That the target, even an American citizen, is a ranking Al-Qaeda figure.
  2. That he or she poses "an imminent threat of violent attack" against America. 
  3. That capture is not "feasible."
With no sworn testimony or evidential threshold, or even the protocol for meeting it, you’d best not hang out with possible Al Qaeda ties. Seriously.

Public response to this unprecedented expansion of presidential authority is so far surprisingly muted.

But we would have torched the Capitol
 and dragged Bush out by his ankles had he even gotten close
 to anything like this.

there’s a birthday pig in there

I beg your pardon?

There's a pig inside the box.

Wha? Yeah, right.

 No, really. lol

Well, let’s get him out of there!

“The End”

Thanks Peter and Lesley!
