War Crimes
Author: BobR    Date: 04/06/2017 15:38:08

By now, everyone has heard, seen, and read about the chemical weapons attacks that occurred on Syrian rebels in the area of Idlib province. The use of gas like this has been a war crime for decades, and Assad definitely needs to be dragged before the Hague and sentenced. There is little chance of that happening, however, since Russia has his back. Of course - with all of the military support Russia provides to Syria, they may be complicit.

Autopsies performed in Turkey have confirmed that chemical weapons were used. Syria of course has denied they used gas, trying to imply "a government shell hit a building where rebels were producing chemical weapons". That is an absurd accusation, believed by no one. It's not the first time that Assad used chemical weapons against his own people.

Ask a Vet

This isn't right.

Before we get to our topic, let's visit a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.

When Senator Palpatine came to power in that fictional space, he was surrounded by many sycophants, loyalists, and power-grabbers. Most of them remain nameless, even in a universe where everything has a backstory.

You're probably not familiar with the character named "Sly Moore". She remained at the emperor's side, yet always in the background. But because she was the closest member of his inner circle, and controlled all access to the Emperor, she became the most powerful member of that particular governing elite. I want you to keep that in mind as we return to the real world.

Sunday Baseball

Good afternoon, folks.

Taking a Sunday evening muse a wee bit early. I watched a bunch of the Yankees game earlier, stopped after Tampa went up 7-2. The Giants are playing the D-backs right now. I'll be back online to catch the Cubs and the Cards this evening.

Flowery Friday

Thanks for a very wet winter out west (nope, no such thing as climate change), they are experiencing what is being called a Super Bloom in southern California and the desert areas. The last Super Bloom was in 2005, 2017 seems to be putting that one to shame. The pictures from Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Diamond Lake, and Death Valley are just stunningly beautiful.

I've gathered a few pictures for us to enjoy and take a breather.

It's Getting Hot in Here
Author: BobR    Date: 03/30/2017 13:08:32

It seems odd that in the 21st century, with robots in factories and on Mars, with man-made devices outside our solar system, with computers in our pockets that can play movies, where science has made amazing strides in technology and medicine, that science itself is so poorly understood, and actively maligned by those who feel threatened by its evidence. It's even more odd that so many are willing to mistrust science and embrace a contrarian view using words like "believe", as if it were a religion rather than a well-established process for getting to the truth.

This, however, is the reality of Americans' relationship with global warming. Some time ago, scientists felt the need to replace the cause with the effect when discussing it, as if there were some other possible cause of climate change besides global warming. Perhaps this is because it's harder to deny the reality of the effects?
