Labor Day plans: pretty much the same everywhere

Nature abhors a vacuum, and blogs without posts cause readers to get bored and drift away, so here’s a few things you may find of interest:

Pic somewhat relevant: I’ll Bet That Vladimir Putin Is Scared Now! over at First Street Journal.

The International Lord of Hate fisked one of the Grauniad’s resident idiots, who further demonstrated his lack of brains by admitting to libel in the Facebook thread. Welp. RTWT; how can you not like a post that begins “Let me cut right to the chase. Damien Walter is a liar.”

John Wright also chimes in on the wretched Damien Walter. He sure writes purty.

Sarah Hoyt has a few things to say about social standards.

I’ve been spending my weekend mostly horizontal, re-reading Monster Hunter Nemesis, which just gets better with each re-reading, as well as Sharpe’s Company and Sharpe’s Sword, because it’s been a few months since I had my last Sharpe fix.

Remember: the September 12 Smittypalooza is in 11 days. RSVP by e-mail, if you haven’t already, so I know how many tables to ask for when I call Jimmy’s Old Town Tavern.

    Spent the afternoon at a local historic site. They had everything you’d need to make a bacon cheeseburger there, but in raw form.

    Labor Day Miscellaneous Linkagery – Donald at American power

    Top labor Day Story – A massive leak of nude and risque photos appearing to be of huge stars like Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton leaked online. The pictures allegedly were retrieved due to an Apple iCloud leak that allowed celebrities’ phones to be hacked, and were posted in an attempt to earn Bitcoins.

    Nah, just the farm of a man who plotted two speculative towns and started the Grange.

    There is something about the 19th Century American propensity to start clubs with funny ceremonies…
