Of course, as Mr. Big Food commented, that’s nothing compared to what’s coming. We had a brief downpour at 6:43. Right humid. Hum. I see a large portion of these United States are quite warm this morning. You know, if I had nothing better to do, I could answer the question, “When did we switch
I went on a little tirade about some graphs. Not a rant, mind you. There was not enough swearing for a rant. Just a tirade. These are the graphs in question. They are crap. And in my little tirade, I didn’t even get around to commenting on the titles, subtitles, and stuff in red. Anyway–
This is what our governor said yesterday. I trust you. I trust that you are doing the right thing in the face of tremendous pressure. That’s why this has not been worse to this point. I’m not lecturing or telling you what to do. I’m asking you, as a fellow Mississippian and American, please do
One of my inboxes is a true source of material. There’s an Alexander’s in Baton Rouge. Ralph’s? And did I ever use Waitr? Maybe. Who knows? But this is what spoke to me earlier this morning as I was tracking the storm. I do not think a grocery cart warrants portrait mode but I’m not
Today on this day in 1864 President Lincoln apparently sent a telegram to the Missus which, in part, said, “Tell Tad the Goats are Well.” The readings are the telegram, and The Last Address in Public delivered on April 11, 1865. The telegram is out there. It’s a telegram. Skimmed through 294 pages of Lincoln’s
As manufacturing and middle-management jobs have fled the state, notes new research from Chapman University’s Marshall Toplansky, the vast majority of all new jobs—some 80 percent—pay less than the median income, Via Instapundit.com I literally screamed out loud. Mr. Big Food: What? What’s wrong? I read it to him. He laughed. I don’t think it’s
Mr. Big Food and I once– 2012– presented a paper at a small conference. We have recently revised that paper for a nonacademic audience. It’s supposed to come out later this year in a volume titled, Dissenting Philosophers. It’s a fun essay. I’ll let you know when it’s published. I am not kidding that the
Okay. Just one comment. Shouldn’t that be “suggests”?
It’s quite simple, really. For every thing you do ( have, want need) ask yourself, “How many ways do I have to do this thing?” All answers >1 are correct. Brought to you by The Department of Redundancy Department.
I’m pretty sure we covered this here at Big Food etc. Yes. Yes we did. I hate to break it to you like this, but the likelihood that you will die is 1, 100%, certain. I see. It does say. “… the longer you may live” right there in the first paragraph. But fer crying
So I signed up to take an online course from Hillsdale College. (I do this from time to time.) This is a special opportunistic course offering from Hillsdale, Constitution 101: The Meaning and History of the Constitution. More crappy old stuff. I was scrolling through the syllabus– standard stuff. A bit too much from that
Not to sound all school marmy but when one is presented with a comparison– and obviously one intended to present one of the subjects of that comparison unfavorably– one must ask, “How is this even f*^#ing relevant?” Iceland? Because The United States of America are so very much like Iceland in all meaning ways. The
Meanwhile… Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer issued an executive order that severely restricts travel between residences. She also basically forbade residents from travel to their own summer home. The new rules are the latest updates to the “stay-at-home” order and are among the most restrictive in the nation. Via PJMedia And… This is not all that
There is plenty of culture to explore in Jackson, especially in the Fondren District, which has seen the opening of the Museum Mississippi of History and the nearby Mississippi Civil Rights Museum.

So today I cried. It’s April 7th– Miss M’s birthday. And I missed it. But there was Tiger’s cameo appearance in the Business Ethics Video So there was that. Which led us to rent, for Three Dollars and Ninety Nine Cents, A Beautiful Mind— the 2001 movie about John Nash– at the end of the
So I’m reading a biography from an archived Wikipedia article. Downloaded it to Evernote in 2016 but had not until just now read it all the way through. Along the way, I’m saying things like, “Hum. Never heard that before.” And, “Really???” Then I get to the end. TWO FREAKING REFERENCES??? WTF??? AND– the one
Quick irony alert. Mr. Big Food just told me he’d been talking today with a prof at another university. Prof said higher administration had called a meeting of all faculty and staff. Meeting to be held in large auditorium. Topic? The Virus. Carry one.
60! Those over the age of 60 should start stocking up on enough groceries and medications to have on hand, the CDC said. https://www.cnbc.com/2020/03/09/many-americans-will-be-exposed-to-coronavirus-through-2021-cdc-says.html?__source=sharebar|twitter&par=sharebar Rest assured that we are stocked up– or as we like to say, prepared.

Licensed nursing home administrator here… all of the idiots buying up all of the masks are screwing over healthcare workers who actually need them to perform their daily jobs and run a higher risk of coming in contact with the virus.
