A Happy Memory


While I was going through the blog reviewing material for another post, I found this post from Valentine’s Day, 2013.The first flower I bought for her was a single pink carnation as a Valentine’s Day gift forty years ago in 1979.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Brett Kimberlin filed false complaints against me with Twitter which resulted in my business and personal accounts being permanently suspended. I claimed from the very beginning of the episode that the complaints were baseless lies. After Kimberlin lost his peace order petition in court and the Montgomery County State’s Attorney’s Office dropped the criminal complaint the Kimberlins filed, Twitter restored my business account. OTOH, Bill Schmalfeldt has had multiple accounts suspended by multiple online service providers, and AFAIK, none have been restored. The Footnote Du Jour from two years ago today deals with one such suspension.

The Gentle Reader may wish to take note that the Cabin Boy™ has not denied the reasons cited by Microsoft for suspending his email account.

The reasons cited in the Microsoft termination email that Schmalfeldt published were distributing malware or child pornography.

California Mugged By Reality


In apparent proof that it is possible to run out of other peoples’ money, California appears to be aborting its high-speed rail project less than a week after the Green New Deal Great Leap Backward™ crowd announced that the whole country would be switching back to trains from air travel over the next 10 years.

I was going to write that none of the Green New Derpsters were available for comment, but that isn’t strictly true. However, the editorial standards here at Hogewash! don’t allow such language.

Oh, and everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.
