Common sense

You don’t see that often these days, but I generally find Andy McCarthy’s thoughts to be full of common sense thinking. One example here.

UPDATE: Here is a nice background on the Kurds.

Announcement here.  I am unclear if this is a new mold or if Italeri is leasing another company’s mold.  I am interested as this version hasn’t been done by Eduard (yet).

It appears we may be getting one next year.  However, many questions remain. Early model?  Latest generation?  Mid-production? All?  We can only hope.

Sentencing

The Court of Last Resort

I am glad to see this.  While I do think that harsh sentences should be meted out for violent offences, the get tough trend in the 80s and 90s many times swept up people for whom long prison sentences were not warranted.  I am glad to see things moving in a more thoughtful direction.

China’s high speed recon drone

Article here.  The recent Chinese military parade celebrating the PRC’s 70th anniversary is revealing a lot of interesting military equipment.  One of the most interesting is a rocket powered drone that is somewhat reminiscent of the US air-breathing DR-21.  I’d love to build one of these when someone inevitably comes out with a kit.
