Blogs Roundup

  • Ambulance Driver relates a story about a business we should make famous.
  • Auntie J shows us how to handle young boys who are still fearful of cooties.  You know, a male could never do that.
  •  Nancy R. runs headlong into the femguns issue.  Personally, I wish they’d quit making everything in flat dark earth or tactical black.  What’s wrong with a nice blued gun?
  • OldNFO reminds me of one of the reasons I hated traveling for the military – expense reports.  Strange thing is, the couple of times I had to do one for another government agency, it was no muss, no fuss, and apologies for it taking a couple of days to get my settlement check.
  • Borepatch links us to the DoJ memo that is used to justify the extra-judicial execution of United States citizens in the event that the President decides that they’ve turned traitor and it’s not worth the bother of actually capturing and trying them.  Let’s try this one on for size:  Would President Nixon have been justified in having the airplane that Jane Fonda used to travel to North Vietnam shot down?  What if FDR had called up Curtis LeMay and told him to bomb Tokyo flat so that they could have a shot at killing Tokyo Rose and her children?  Would those have been justified?
  • BRM, Jennifer, and Michael Z. Williamson all have good points on the subject of rape and its prevention.
  • Brigid reminds me that I need to build more bookshelves and start stockpiling dead trees for those happy, golden years when I will have the time and energy to sit and enjoy them.
  • Wired has a good write-up on a new tourniquet design for pelvic and high-leg injuries.
