Poor Bob, Cal Thomas called POTUS an idiot. OMG no. Behead him, burn him. Of course George Bush was called Hitler, but I am thinking Bob was ok with that. The likes of Dowd, Krugman, Rich, Bruni, Collins, etc have graced the pages of the Pilot op ed page and had some pretty nasty things to say about Republicans but I can't recall a rant from Bob about that. Bob refers to some members of congress as gerrymandered fascist teabaggers and yet he gets all wound up because the Pilot has the audacity to publish a piece where in Obama is called an idiot. I thought the op ed from the guy upset about fire works was out there but Bob, you now have the prize for the silliest complaint. If idiot was the worst a president was ever called, life would be darn good. Politics ain't bean bag.

I'd say pretty much plan on one most afternoons. If they don't happen - bonus day for the dogs. There seem to plenty of dogs in Steamboat and the hinterlands so either their owners have fitted them with ear plugs or they seem to have figured out a way to survive the noise. Wonder if the noise from the "free" concerts bothers them. Bring in 'da noise, Bring in 'da funk

Hey Nick, Steamboat does a pretty good job of providing a calendar and lists the events that include when fireworks will occur and where. You might want to get a hold of one and plan your trips to Steamboat accordingly. Thanks for visiting and presumably helping the local economy.

George, Bell curve. So you are telling me I have a chance. Just finished "How the Irish saved Civilization" by Thomas Cahill. Recently finished "Genghis Khan, The Making of the Modern World" by Jack Weatherford. Getting ready to read the cliff notes version of "Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire" by Gibbons. History may not exactly repeat but there is a certain rhythm.

Hey George, Thanks for the link. Will try to get thru it. It looks like it is quite long. One hour plus. Have watched first 15 minutes. Very familiar with the rule of 70 and using it to determine how long it doubles. Great tool for straight line calculations. Does he build in a tool for variations of annual per cent increases or even per cent decreases. Do I get class credit for taking the course, is there a final, is it pass/fail or am i taking it for a grade.

Of course Israel's "entire" policy doesn't sit well with me. Just like the "entire" USA policy doesn't sit well with me. We are all human. Human's make mistakes. I will take Israel's "entire" policy over the "entire" policies of Iran, Palestine, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Yemen. How about you.

Assuming you are correct and Israel has violated international law. What would you do if you were backed into a corner and your existence was threatened. If you were being bullied on the playground and you felt your health/life/safety were in jeopardy would you defend yourself to the point of fighting even though the school policy was no fighting or would you just take the beating and hope you survived it.

Scott, Guilt by association. Not sure I get your drift but then i am a self avowed simpleton. You didn't like the fact that more bats are killed by generating wind power than by global warming or what ever the article said. I chuckled when I read that. Will there be an insect proliferation in those areas. LOL. Just trying to tweak those that pray at the altar of global warming/climate change and what an impact we nasty humans are having. So put on your biggest smile and go outside and cause some global warming today. I know I am going to try my best. At least use an appliance or 2.

some more of that darned random work place violence. move along, move along. nothing to see here.

"At the present time, over a dozen hours after other media (such as The Guardian) reported prominently on the specifically anti-Semitic nature of yesterday’s attack in Copenhagen and on the fact there was a Bat Mitzvah going on in the synagogue while it was being attacked (with over 80 people including many children inside), the lengthy report on the New York Times website on the Copenhagen shootings doesn’t mention the word “anti-Semitism” once. Instead New York Times correspondent Steven Erlanger writes in his piece “anti-Muslim sentiment is rising in Europe.”

Nor does the New York Times mention the bat mitzvah. There are not so many Jews in Denmark and not many bat mitzvahs -- it seems the terrorist had done his research carefully. Yet the New York Times website home page says, at the time of writing, that the shooting was “near a synagogue”. It wasn’t near a synagogue. It was at a synagogue. The synagogue was the target. Which is why a Jew guarding the synagogue was shot dead. With the New York Times’ reporting one starts to understand how Obama and his spokespeople could say the kosher attack in Paris was “random” even though the perpetrator – interviewed live on French radio during the attack – proudly boasted that he had come all the way across Paris in order to kill Jews gathering before the sabbath.

(None of this is new, of course. Even during the Holocaust, the New York Times did all it could to avoid mentioning that those being deported to Auschwitz and other camps were being deported because they were Jews.)

One can only imagine how many children might have died had the gunman managed to enter the bat mitzvah celebration yesterday.

The Copenhagen attack is not exactly a surprise. Only last month, AP reported that Denmark’s small Jewish community had asked their government for greater protection.

As Maajid Nawaz, a brave British Muslim who has dared to speak out against the extremists, said this morning regarding the Copenhagen attacks: “So, if the appeasers of jihadism ask people not to offend terrorists by drawing cartoons, what should Jews do not to offend? Cease to exist?"
