More details on exactly what happened. Executive summary: He’s a moron. Also, WaPo sports columnist John Feinstein writes the second amendment “should be abolished“. Executive summary: He’s a moron.
I posted a bit on this incident last Saturday over at GunPundit and have an update on it today. What a moron.
Murdoc ran his first marathon yesterday. Ouch. Sometimes, no matter how much harder you push yourself, you just keep slowing down. This was the case over the last few miles yesterday morning. I think I ran as hard as I could, and I didn’t make any significant mistakes. Though I missed my best-case goal by […]
I don’t mention it much, but Murdoc is a runner. In fact, he’s training to run a marathon this fall. Anyway, Runner’s World writes a bit about the fact that Sarah Palin is a fairly serious runner: Not just a “oh, I go jogging once in a while” kind of runner, but a “I’ll get […]
Olympics Opening Ceremony Fireworks ‘Faked’ on TV The Telegraph picked up a story in the Chinese newspaper the Beijing Times which explained that filming the 29 firework “footprints” from the air would have been impossible.

Even though I checked the ZIP codes of home and work and both showed ‘okay,’ it tells me I’m blacked out for all home Tigers games. What someone is calling the “official MLB blackout map’ […]
Murdoc is on the road (well, in the skies) today headed out to Denver for some day job training. Posting here at MO will continue to be a bit light, and if someone invites me to either tonight’s or Thursday’s playoff hockey game between Detroit and Colorado, all bets are off. Oh, and readers may […]
Protester’s sign in SanFranciscostan: Would we allow Nazi Germany to host the Olympics? That’s some funny, there. Though I’ll admit that I didn’t know that the torch run before the Olympics was first organized for the 1936 games. Link and more info at RNS.
That’s probably just a plastic trophy Last spring we had the opportunity to go to the Indianapolis 500 courtesy of some good friends with tickets for great seats that they couldn’t use. My wife was pulling for Danica Patrick, (probably) mostly due to the fact that she was a woman in a male-dominated sport. I […]
