Feel free to fill out form with a crayon

From the great American Digest blog:

Durham's shame

North Carolina may be one of the least psychopathic states, but we have pockets, to be sure. The City of Durham, for example, recently decided to dabble in anti-Semitism.


Hillary's Mamluks.

Peter Strzok has been booted from FBI HQ. Permanently, would be nice.

Don't go away mad, just go away...

Something new! Medicare Part G.

Liberalism ruins everything - take San Francisco. Please.

Funny how the media never noticed the policy of segregating children from their illegal immigrant parents until Obama was safely out of the White House (actually, I believe the policy goes back to, at least, George W. Bush) .

Hungary takes on George Soros and the EU's insane immigration policy.

About time: the U.S. is withdrawing from the UN "Human Rights" Council.

Today's fantasy

If only...

Fun day

Yesterday we took Maggie on the Ft. Fisher ferryboat for a return trip to the aquarium. I have a sneaking suspicion that she is at least as interested in cajoling grandma and grandpa into buying her another plush toy at the gift shop as she is at looking at the coastal and marine specimens at the park (which we did, of course).

Good to get out of the car and catch the breeze off the Cape Fear River...

It was still pretty hot, so we spent most of our time on the boat in the air-conditioned lounge...

I love these little guys...

I don't love these little guys, though they're pretty to look at (poisonous tree frogs)...

Imagining what it must have been like to wind up as a Megalodon's breakfast...

This feathered horror is an animated model of a Utahraptor, although it looks like the result of an experiment gone horribly wrong down on one of Tyson Chicken's farms...

As I say, it was very hot and humid, but one difference I note between here and Northern Virginia is that, when the sun goes down along the coast, thanks to the constant breezes blowing in off the ocean, the evenings are extraordinarily pleasant - whereas in N. VA, the nights can continue to be sticky hot.

Break out the holy water

Or maybe bring back the stake.

The NRA's newest foe? Witchcraft.

Update: History - learn from it or repeat it.

That's a relief

Following up on my earlier post on Washington: Psychopath Capital of the United States, here's more information on the country as a whole. Note that North Carolina is the fourth least psychopathic state (in anticipation of Steve Skubinna's likely question, no, I'm not aware that the state has slipped a notch since I moved here).

"Welcome to Connecticut!"
