Courting disaster

Wet enough for ya?

The authorities have found a big, fat snake in Florida.

And they’ve captured an 18-foot, 215-pound Burmese python too.


The big news here in New Mexico is that the Forest Circus has decided we’ve had enough monsoon to reopen the forests for fun and frolic. So if your idea of a good time is pitching a tent in a puddle of West Nile Starter Kit, cultivating moss on your north side, and shredding some soggy gnar-gnar, why, knock yourself out.

Mind you, this edict comes from the same geniuses who lit ’em up in the first place, so please refrain from celebrating with fireworks.

And pack a fire extinguisher. Just in case.

Finally, to absolutely no one’s surprise, the Supremes have croaked Roe v. Wade. This is your regularly scheduled reminder that elections matter.

    Well, if their was any question that the supremes have become political, now you know. And, the turtle, dumpster, and the heritage foundation took care of that. Clarence is off the rails.

    I like your photo shot. It can be perceived as being from below as perhaps you were, or looking down from above as if you were in Bezos’ phalic rocket ship. You didn’t take any recent quick trips over to Van Horn recently have you?

    I suppose like your photo shot, the decision by the supreme court yesterday was made on a matter that could be perceived from either above or below. Those on the real world view it from the underside, while those with rarefied ideals and morals that they feel should be imposed on others, look down from above.

    Regarding the big, fat snake thing, I didn’t see where you may have included an artful image of a fresh pile of dog crap. You know, the one with the little curly orange thing at the top.

    Have a fine weekend boys and girls. And remember, the UCI says we don’t have to worry about those gear restrictions anymore.

    They told us in the Roe decision what are the coming attractions.

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      Yup. Clarence is de facto Chief Justice, with Alito his deputy dog, and they’re out for blood.

      John Gruber at Daring Fireball recommends reading the dissent.

      James Fallows says the Supremes have given away any legitimacy they had, noting that this Court resembles America about as much as a herring does Moby-Dick.

      And Charles P. Pierce, as usual, is all over this bushwa like a cheap suit.

      Notes Chazbo: “They’re coming for it all, people. That’s what this carefully engineered radical conservative majority was bought and paid for.”

      Legislating from the bench. Remember when conservatives decried “activist judges?” They also used to have some qualms about lying under oath, but that was quite a while back.

      SCOTUSblog’s analysis is worth a read too.
