Excuse me, California, but I’ve been through this movie before…

Like some forgotten dream that we’ve both seen”

    Wow, that’s got to be an ugly memory come back to say hi.

    Oh, Gerard! Praying for you and so many others. May the Lord be merciful to all.

    Oh well, at least we’ll always have ̶P̶a̶r̶i̶s̶ , ̶P̶o̶r̶t̶l̶a̶n̶d̶ , ̶S̶e̶a̶t̶t̶l̶e̶ , ̶N̶e̶w̶ ̶Y̶o̶r̶k̶ ̶ , Chicken, Alaska.

    I was listening to Dan Crenshaw interview Michael Shellenberger, former environmental radical and author of “Apocalypse Never.” Shellenberger points out that California could have been 100 percent clean energy by now, with plenty of excess capacity, had not Gov. Pat Brown gone to work for foreign oil interests after he left office. You know, Jerry Brown’s dad. They systematically boxed out nuclear and natural gas.

    He points out, more than once, that wind and solar will never ever be reliable. But they’re great for wrecking nature. Crenshaw brings up how Texans can buy electric from many different suppliers. Shellenberger shoots him down: corrupt, self dealing, deceptive.

    It is a good interview. I learned quite a bit.

    Gordon sed: “He points out, more than once, that wind and solar will never ever be reliable.”
    ========
    As always, if the gov’t is in charge failure looms, in all things.
    In private ownership alternative energy methods are beyond reliable.
    Clue: Unreliable entities will never be reliable.

    Same news, different people…ad infinitum

    Can you feel our caring hearts? We are with you and hope that snow flies soon! Go slow now. We will need you soon more than ever.

    Many are the prayers that I have aimed heavenwards on your behalf in the past week or so, Gerard. Let us hope their efficacy exceeds that of my recent ones to shift the landfall of Isaias away.

    So, the Buffalo Bore .357 ammo has arrived. A little on the dear side, but of late laying hands on any sort of ammo hereabouts is no mean feat; even at $20 to empty the revolver, it’s a tiny fraction of any trip to the ER, so I’m good. Thanks to those who made the recommendation. If I dispatch a feral pig, which in reality is a much more likely event than being attacked by a black bear, I’ll throw a helluva Eastern NC pig pickin’, with all and sundry invited.

    What Anne said!

    And Gerard, thanks for the Prine line. In this season of tumult and loss he is sorely missed.
