I got to sleep in, having a late shift this evening, and went from alseep to gathering chives and scallions in about as long as it takes to put on sandals and a robe.

...And from there, directly to the kitchen, do not stop, do not pass Go, do not collect e-to-the-x dollars....

Because the end result is corned beef hash, touched with a little Montreal Steak seasoning, laced with green onions and cooked up with eggs atop, sprinkled with fresh-snipped chives and just a haunt of cheese: breakfast as it should be et!


Noted In Passing, With Interest: prime suspect in the Times Square Idiot Bomb, a Pakistani-born U.S. citizen living in the Nutmeg State -- though he'd just come from a visit to (Our Good, Good Friends And Allies) Pakistan and was boarding a plane back there when nabbed. Fun as it is to gloat at the Gang-That-Couldn't-Shoot-Straight-ness of it all, I will quench it in order to point out that an ijit that wants to blow stuff up only needs to be lucky once to look like an evil mastermind.

On the other hand, much like the foiling of the Detroit Underpants Bomber, this is yet another example of J. Average Random Guy noticing something hinky and doing the right thing.

And on the other other hand, a string of even failed attempts has an effect on the aggregate mood of the citizenry; I just don't think it's quite the effect these fellows -- and the mullahs who maul their tiny minds -- are expecting. Y'keep on sowing the winds, sooner or later something gets spun up.

Yes! Arthur "Bomber" Harris: "They [the Nazis] have sown the wind; now they shall reap the whirlwind."

wv: "platopen"

If only!

Actually, the original version in Hosea seems more appropriate:

"For they sow the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind. The standing grain has no heads; it shall yield no flour; if it were to yield, strangers would devour it."

Devouring often seems to be what the regime wants, these days.

I'm thinkin' the "has no heads" applies in particular -- no head for improvised munitions, anyway, which is summat of a blessing for us.

Except this bomb was almost identical to the one in Glasgow a couple of years ago, and that one worked. Like I said, it could have been nerves, it could have been incompetence, it cold have been a double agent. But we can't count on that x factor working in our favor next time.

And Bomber Harris went on to create several whirlwinds, in Dresden, for example...

This dip$**t is a poseur. He was looking for street cred with his Islamic buddies. "Hey! Look at me! I iz a muja....mugi....mugg.....fighter!" He really wanted that hero parade in Pakistan.
