Read this story.  What the hell is the Department of Education doing with its own SWAT team?  Isn’t that what the FBI is for?  Good God, what has our federal government become.

Favorite quote #7

 “War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight; nothing he cares about more than his own personal safety; is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better persons than himself.”

 

– John Stuart Mill

Read the latest here.  Looks like a shooting went down and the police were doing everything they could to eliminate evidence that might contradict the story they are going to tell.  Citizens who photograph the police should always use a service lik QiK to instantly upload the videos.  That way if the phone is confiscated/destroyed, then the video survives.

Additionally, in Illinois, a district attorney shows incredibly bad judgment.

That Leslie Nielsen was a Canadian.  Story about his gravesite in Ft. Lauderdale is here.  Some folks don’t remember that earlier in his career, Nielsen was a leading man in dramatic roles.  He starred in the classic Forbidden Planet.

Jim previously sent me photos of a Sea Hawk and the new Sword T-33 that he is working on.  I meant to post if before now, but just didn’t get around to it.

IPMS/Canada’s magazine, RT, has published an article I wrote on the build I did of an Airfix Spitfire PR.XIX in 72nd scale.
