Mr. Bates has helped pen an excellent article on the first black officer pilot in the RCAF.  It is a great story.  Read here.

The battle of Midway was the first use of the TBF.  Only one of the VT-8 TBFs survived.  Here are a couple of photos of the one that returned.  Photos via US Navy.

Over the top government

I really do hate writing these posts.  I get tired of it.  Now we have government inspectors determining if the lunch you send to school is up to snuff nutritionally?  Story here.  Don’t tell these folks that I let my daughter eat a cookie for breakfast before school the other day!

Speaking of the government and regulation of our food, this is a good article for pointing out the absurdity of it all.

The reason for smaller government

We need a smaller federal government.  This story illustrates why.  Personally, I think drinking raw milk is dumb.  I think giving it to small children is even dumber.  However, people ought to have the right to do dumb stuff if they so chose.

This is an interesting story.  I’d be interested in seeing more photos of what they’ve found.

Only they could come up with a sport like this.

OK, I admit it.  I’d love to see a game just to see what it is like.  I imagine it is like hockey, but with less violence.

Weird legal news

Apparently writing in your English composition class that you are hot for your teacher will get you kicked off campus.  Apparently no one in the administration has heard of the First Amendment.  I suspect they will learn.

Apparently in Saudi Arabia you can be convicted on the word of someone who claims to have spoken with the genie that was possessing you at the time you committed the alleged crime.

And, as everyone suspects, the police are the worst violators of speed limit restrictions.
