justification for really outdated bigotry

MSM: Oh Noes, NYC Truck Bomber Is Jihadi!! What to do now??

Gosh, this is what I get for avoiding the MSM and by trying to be out working as much as I can. I gather there was a great game of “pin the truck bombing on the tea party” going around the major news networks for several days. And I missed all of it. Gee whiz.

That night, Attorney General Holder said “It’s important that American people remain vigilant.” Sadly, it’s quite clear that the administration and many on the left refuse to do the same; unless it’s remaining vigilant in their pursuit of demagoguing Republicans. It’s gotten to the point where I was honestly waiting for the release of a statement from Obama, consisting of a sternly worded apology and claims that he inherited the bomber, Faisal Shahzad, from Bush.

Michael Bloomberg started the insane blame the Republicans at all costs narrative off with a bang. When asked by the elfin Katie Couric for a guess as to who the bomber could be, Bloomberg offered this:

“If I had to guess 25 cents, this would be exactly that. Homegrown, or maybe a mentally deranged person, or somebody with a political agenda that doesn’t like the health care bill or something. It could be anything,” he said.

I’d like to just shake my head and write this off as a mere tempest in a tea bag, but it’s sterling proof that Big Media works hand in glove with the left to further their agenda, and will portray any event in that light until and even after the facts prove that view to be utterly wrong.

We will never be able to take back America without a major purge of the media. They have far too much power and they abuse that power all the time. For more on the Blame The Teabaggers story, read Lori Ziganto’s post over at NewsReal Blog.

When this truck bomb thing first happened I looked at the bomb itself and said FAIL. Then I said “follow the money”. Hmmm.

On the news this morning I hear that NYC mayor Bloomberg is using this “crisis” to justify not laying off about 900 city cops. Somehow they’ll find the $58 million to pay these guys, but they have been deemed necessary. Cut the budget somewhere else.

I also heard that Bloomberg is back on his Mayors Against Guns bully pulpit, and is again pushing his idea that anyone on a No-Fly list should be banned from purchasing firearms. And probably having their firearms seized if he had his way entirely. Funny, I don’t think there is any Due Process whatsoever involved when someone gets put on one of those lists. I don’t even know what a) groups of officials have the authority to put someone on them, nor b) what oversight that act has, nor c) what minuscule “burden of suspicion” is required to get on one. Probably a) far too many, b) and c) not very much. So let’s restrict their constitutional rights. Thanks Bloomberg. I didn’t know you and Frank Lautenberg were first cousins.

The NYC cops are unionized. Unions are powerful because they have lots of money and lots of political connections. Bloomberg is a gazillionaire.

Not trying to spin a new conspiracy theory, but I wonder ... how much does a jihadi cost? Seriously. Don’t you doubt for a second that money talks and bullshit walks - I absolutely guarantee you that for the right amount of scratch and the right behind the scenes connections, you can buy yourself a suicide bomber to target what you want, where you want, when you want, damn near anywhere in the world. And if you’re slick enough, there won’t be any kind of paper trail. A small bag of money to cousin Hassam, a small bag of money to cousin Achmed, a new used car for uncle Mo back in the old country, an untraceable cash donation for the mosque that got laundered through 8 proxies ... I bet it’s far cheaper than you think.

I would not bat an eye if, once suicide bombs and truck bombs become “normal” here - and they will!! - that they aren’t used as an almost regular business tactic.

Never let a crisis go to waste. Especially the ones you create yourself. Having followed the money, are we seeing that here? I hope not, but we will never ever know. Especially since the fully owned MSM is busy doing it’s best to try an pin this on Conservatives. Damn those dirty treasonous racist violent clingers.

Neat Firefox Feature

If you use the Firefox browser you soon get in the habit of having quite a number of web pages open all at once, each on it’s own tab. Once you get more than 9 or so going, the tab header gets smaller and most of the identifying text (the page title actually) gets hidden. And if you have dozens of tabs open, many of them are pushed off screen to either side. Jumping from the tab you are on to the tab that you want to look at next can be a small bother. You can cycle through them all with ctrl-tab, but that only highlights the tab header.

Well, here’s a nice fix. Firefox has a visual tab browser in it, and all you have to do is turn it on.

Open a new tab, and type in about:config and hit Enter. This takes you to Firefox’s configuration editor. Now type browser.ct . Immediately two parameters appear. Double clicking on browser.ctlTab.previews will change the boolean value from Off to On. Close this tab, you’re done with about:config. Now try doing a ctrl-tab ... and you get a visual preview. Cool!


If you have a large number of tabs open you can ctrl-tab over to select the “show all tabs” button and it will do exactly that. Then just click the one you want.

Lost on Lost

So sad. After 5 3/4 seasons, with just 3 episodes to go after tonight’s show broadcast, I’m lost on LOST.

Frankly tonight’s episode sucked. Locke double-double crossing Sawyer and Jack? Good, but expected. After all, Smokey is evil incarnate, and any decent evil grand vizier can plan two steps ahead. I expected no less than that from FLocke (Fake Locke, since he’s been dead for quite some time now) and he didn’t let me down. It didn’t make sense why he went all smoke monster to kill one bunch of guards, but then did in the next bunch while in bullet proof man form, but at least FLocke can shoot. Everybody else on this show got their marksmanship training from the A-Team.

But the submarine? Oh. Please. Just too much to handle. After a casual mid-afternoon hijacking, fire fight, and emergency crash dive, Sayid takes the bomb - a good 12 pounds of C4 - and without even a decent exit line, runs away from the group through several open bulkhead doors. And closes none of them. And the sub has been diving for a couple minutes now. Granted they dove while still motoring away from the lagoon, but it’s got to be a couple hundred feet down at this point. And ... BOOM!, Sayid goes all splodeydope, but for a good reason this time.

The sub is not somehow broken in half by a charge big enough to rip a new garage door sized hole right through an ocean liner. Everyone on board is not somehow turned into red mashed potatoes by the overpressure. No, it just causes the sub to start leaking and tilt over a bit. The lights didn’t even blink. Uh. Huh. Riiight.

And worthless old Sun, who hasn’t said or done anything important in 20 episodes, her English speaking abilities magically restored the other week’s ep when she finally got her hearts-and-flowers reunion with lost-in-time husband Jin, gets pinned under some fallen equipment. Because nothing needs to be tied down on a sub, or even bolted or welded to the floor. So a big bit of electronics gives her the pinch. I guess the sub was too small for her to run away all girlie style and trip and sprain her ankle. And as the waters rise, she and Jin get their last dramatic scene in. “We go together like ramma lamma lamma ka dinga da dinga dong, Remembered forever as shoo-bop sha whada whadda yippidy boom da boom, Chang chang changity chang shoo bop that’s the way it should be, Waooo Yeah!” Only with no music or dance moves.

Meanwhile, Frank Lapidus is running around the sinking sub, and stops to look out the big picture window. On a sub. Of course! Oooh lookie; fishies!! Wassamatta, couldn’t he look out the screen door instead? To my amazement, there’s no Patchy on the other side of the glass with a grenade, and no Charlie drawing Cliff Notes on his hand. For once. Creak, groan, GROAN and Frank says “Oh crap”. The window blows out, smooshes him, and in comes the water. End of Frank. Guess he really really isn’t going to Guam this time. And the sub continues to slowly sink - with one end blown open and a 6 foot hole where the window used to be at the other end, and all the interior hatches open. Blub blub, still plenty of time, blub, blub, better do something soon, blub, in your own time, blub.

Hurley takes worthless Kate and gets her to the surface with a little buddy breather bottle from the sub’s Rescue Rack. Which has 2. And a raincoat. To save the whole crew. Sure, she’s been shot, but it’s merely a shoulder wound, so she’s not going into shock or losing blood or anything. Benighted Saint Jack does the same thing with unconscious Sawyer and the other bottle ... and we don’t get to any of the dramatic and sexy grubby fat man/wounded hot chick or two hot guys underwater life saving buddy breathing lip action. Next scene, all four of them are on the beach. And it’s night. After a 10 minute boat ride from hell. Boo hoo, everyone else is dead. Jack, ever the asshole, has to go run into the water to shed a tear where no one can see him. Meanwhile, over in the jungle, FLocke grabs a gun and heads off. “Where are you going?” asks Claire ("crazy, but still hot” is about the best line Miles ever had, and he’s so right) “I’m going to finish what I started.” Cut to ... Bad Robot! End of ep.

I really try to cut Hollywood a lot of slack for the things they do for “dramatic necessity”, but this was just too much to swallow. Cheap. Lame. So “and then there were four”, except for the other dozen or so characters remaining, including Desmond who is still stuck in the well (assuming he wasn’t shot by Sayid) and just 3 episodes to go.

Are we there yet? Is it over yet? I can’t wait. You know Hurley is going to win this thing, and that Jack will be the new Jacob, against his old nemesis Flocke. We’ve been seeing that eternal conflict for 5 seasons already. Teaser for next week - FLocke playing backgammon. Again.

We’re losing this

So ...

That pathetic attempt at a truck bomb in New York City last week ... the owner of the truck was some Pakistani guy, just back from a long visit over there. I’ve heard “religious training” but whatever. So he makes his tard-bomb ... and parks the truck in front of the Viacom office building.

Viacom owns Comedy Central.

Comedy Central broadcasts the cartoon South Park.

The other week South Park did a bust-on-everyone episode, and featured Mohammed wearing a bear costume. That part got edited out I’ve heard.

But they got truck bombed anyway.

Meanwhile, over in the other sandbox, our troops come under fire from jihadis, and they have to radio back to headquarters for permission to return fire. How long does that take - 15, 20, 30 minutes?

We’re going to lose this thing. On purpose. Because we have no leadership that is willing to stand up. Instead, he wants to bow down. To everyone. But to them the mostest.

Game over.

UPDATE: Hey, it gets worser every day. Now the news is that Flagstaff and Tucson are going to sue the state of Arizona over the new anti-illegal immigration law. Um, since when can cities within a state sue that state? And what’s their rag? That busting Pedro and Consuela when they commit some other offense is going to impact tourism!

The Tucson and Flagstaff city councils voted Tuesday to sue Arizona over its tough new immigration law, citing concerns about enforcement costs and negative effects on the state’s tourism industry.
The Flagstaff City Council voted unanimously in favor of a resolution that says it’s an unfunded mandate to carry out the responsibilities of the federal government. Its Tuesday night meeting drew a crowd that initially numbered in the hundreds but dwindled significantly as the night wore on.

How’s that for attitude? If the state wants the cops to enforce a new law, they should be paying them extra to do so. Because enforcing the law is asking too much of the police. Holy flaming armadillos.

Oh, and Mr. Paki the truck bomber? Yeah, he got arrested. While he was on the airplane about to fly off to Dubai, trying to make his getaway. So much for an effective TSA and Homeland Security.

The no-fly list failed to keep the Times Square suspect off the plane.

Faisal Shahzad had boarded a jetliner bound for the United Arab Emirates Monday night before federal authorities pulled him back. Although under surveillance since midafternoon, he had managed to elude investigators and head to the airport.

Hey, here’s a bad idea: pay extra attention to anyone and everyone getting on or off an airplane headed to sandland. Any flight, every flight. From Turkey all the way down and around to the Sudan. A big A+ for the clown posse keeping this guy “under surveillance”. Who ran the crew, Governor Patterson?

automotive dreamin

I want a car with a proper Jersey overdrive.

Most cars sold in America just really aren’t geared properly for high speed highway driving.

My little Satrun is churning 3500 rpm at 80mph, right about the spot where the 4 valve head really comes online. Which means I can cut and thrust through traffic with panache if necessary. But most of the time it isn’t necessary, and the car tends to eat gas when spun up that much. It’s got a 5 speed, but that overdrive really is optimized for driving at 53mph. If it been built with a 6th gear I’d want it big. Trim at least 1000 rpm off of that, maybe even 1250. It really doesn’t take much more than 15 horsepower to push an aerodynamic vehicle down the road at that speed ... so why put >100hp into the mix when I only need 15 out?

My wife’s Sentra Spec-V has a 6 speed, and waaay more power in the engine than mine has. But instead of making the tranny a 3+3, which would be both awesome and Joisey-perfect - 3 regular gears and then 3 overdrive gears, they dropped in the gearset directly from the Altima, which is a much heavier car. And the 6 speed is so “close ratio” that it’s really a 5 speed with 1 extra gear stuffed in there; the cuts between the gears are very slim. I often gently drive her car around town by shifting 1-2-5, and then drop it into 6th at 40mph. See what I mean? 6th at 40mph? That’s all wrong. Even though her engine is 25% larger than mine, her car only spins 300-500 rpm less in top gear than mine. Which means that at Jersey highway speed, which means cruising at 80 and passing at 95, her car is a BLAST to drive. It’s alive. Punchy. Aggressive. Super, but not necessary. Give me a grandpa gear so I can go that speed and just putt-putt along a bit over idle. And get 35-40mpg. A great second overdrive would not work at 40mph. The engine would stall, or at least cough. No, it should come on at 60mph, minimum. 1250rpm.

You can get decent gas mileage and still drive fast. Those little EUmobiles get 75mpg on diesel, and highway speeds over there are around 81mph (130kph), I’ve heard. It can be done. It’s all in the gearing.

I bet they don’t tailgate at 90 in France like Joisey drivers do. You’d think they’re all having a NASCAR drifting fantasy, but most of them wouldn’t know from NASCAR if a Yarborough bit ‘em in the ass.

Free and good PC Tools

CCleaner has an update. It’s free. CCleaner tidies up your Windows run PC pretty well, removes dead links, bad references, etc. It’s a good tool. Click here to download.

IOBit’s Advanced System Care is an even better tool. The free version is pretty good, but the one you pay for is fantastic. It really cleans up your registry, which is often full of junk. And it searches for spyware and a host of other stuff, and it cleans up just like CCleaner. Clicky Click. IOBit’s defragmenting tool Smart Defrag is pretty darn good too. Defragging is a pain these days with the giant drives everyone has, but it’s a task you really ought to do once a month.

An oldie but goody is MRU Blaster. It gets rid of those Most Recently Used lists, which gives you a bit of privacy on a computer you share with somebody. Nice for using after a bunch of downloading, wink-wink, nudge nudge, know what I mean? Free download . It does it’s job in under 15 seconds.

All of these are virus-free downloads, and all the tools work on all the versions of Windows out there.

Change the Border, Change the Direction

Your Daily 2 Minute Read


It is utterly mind-boggling to see the reaction of the cultural and political elites in the United States to the law passed by Arizona last week empowering the state to enforce immigration laws. Cardinal Mahoney of Los Angeles characterized the law as “Nazism,” and Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano called it “misguided” and “not ... good.”

The Constitution grants Congress the authority to “establish a uniform Rule of Naturalization” and to “repel Invasions.” But prominent congressional leaders like Speaker Pelosi and Congressman Raúl Grijalva have taken positions opposing the enforcement of the immigration laws Congress itself has passed.

Even the president has criticized Arizona’s law, calling instead for granting citizenship to illegals. What else would you expect from a president who spent his childhood in Indonesia, bowed to foreign emperors, gave a campaign speech as a citizen of the world in Berlin, and who currently has an aunt living as an illegal alien on welfare in Boston? Certainly it is unrealistic to expect that he will serve the interests of the United States.

Over at American Thinker Michael Filozof turns the tables in What if Arizona were Quebec, and wonders how Quebec would react if most of New England decided to sneak into Canada. Sacre bleu! Then he looks at DC and the media and wonders even further.

It’s worth it, so go and take a gander.

Um, only partway through my first coffee here, gotta run, lots of work today ... but are Arizona and Quebec plurals? Shouldn’t that be “What if Arizona Was Quebec”? Brain not functional yet.

I should send this to Leno

Department of Redundancy Department

Automotive Branch, Implicit Section

Field Reports From Captain Obvious

I saw this in my local paper. It’s good for a chuckle if you’re a car person.

1995 Buick Roadmaster
Perfect condition 89,000 miles 5 new tires
Senior owned
$3500 OBO

Laugh all you want ... then look up the specs on the ‘95 Roadmaster with the towing package. Yeah, that’s grandpa’s Buick, leaving you in the dust.

So if you’re really really a car person, it’s probably worth snapping this one up just for the LT1 under the hood. Um, I mean the LT1 barely driven 6000 miles a year, along with the heavy duty 4 speed tranny and the 3.08 posi in the back.

One For Peiper

While the old P-man is out aimlessly traipsing around the Sonora Desert, his mates back home in his home away from home are acting up. In almost exactly the way he wants them to, minus the massed volleys from the Enfields. I bet he’s jealous that he missed this one ... and it looks like he’ll go right on missing them, as I now hear that Ireland has shut down their airports again due to Icelandic ash. No, I don’t understand either why P and Mrs. P, who live in south east England, have to fly in and out of Ireland. Something about the paperwork, that’s all I know. Anyway, on to the story.

Villagers fight back against invasion of travellers

Farmers used pickup trucks to close roads and residents held a vigil to thwart the invasion and turn back trucks full of building supplies going on to the land near the picture postcard village.

Gipsies in the past have used Bank Holidays to tarmac over fields because they know they have an extra day before council planning officers are back at their desks to halt development.

But residents in Meriden, near Solihull, West Midlands, swung into action after they spotted the travellers swarming onto the 10-acre field in the village just after the council offices closed at 5.30pm on Friday.

They had arrived with huge mechanical diggers, planning to rip up the ground, pour concrete bases for their mobile homes, and set up a permanent site.

But residents from the village, which dates back to medieval times and claims to be in the exact centre of England, fought back.

In a desperate bid to halt building work to supply caravans with water and electricity, residents formed a human barricade to prevent trucks delivering raw materials from getting to the site.

“We don’t want them here, it is as simple as that,“ said 65 year-old local farmer Lawrie Arnold, who organised the village’s resistance.

“As soon as it happened, people rang round and we started to do what we could. We live by the planning laws, why shouldn’t they?

“We are going to be here for as long as it takes.“

Gipsies used the May Bank Holiday last year to pave over green belt land near Newent, Glos, one of the prettiest towns in the Forest of Dean.

The previous year, another group did the same Shipston-on-Stour in Warwickshire, near the home of Tessa Jowell, the Minister for the Olympics.

They lodge a planning application last thing on Friday, tarmac the fields and install utilities before the planners deem their actions illegal.

By then they have installed amenities and it can make months, if not years to remove them.

Silly Brits. It only takes seconds to remove them. You just have to shut down the cell phone towers ahead of time, and make sure the council members are all over at the duck pond counting the hatchlings. Everyone else just needs a bit of selective deafness for a short time, and a bit of a memory lapse after that.

Thanks Duane

Duane Lester emails me to check out this video he made of Pastor Stephen Broden, taking Michael Steele to task for his dopey “blacks got no reason to vote Republican” comment the other day.

So high thee hence, with alacrity, and watch.

Notice that Pastor Broden says “IF”. That man ... that man is a tea partier, I’m certain of it. He is also running for Congress, on the GOP ticket. 30th District in Texas.

A Broden quote:
What we witnessed on Sunday March 21st was nothing less than a blatant disregard for the wishes of “We The People.” The Democratic left has yet again trampled under foot our constitutional form of government. We the people must speak up in one voice against the liberal left’s attempt to push socialism down our collective throats. Mandated health care is not in the constitution. Fellow patriots, we must stay engaged and push back if we are to save our Republic.

More about the candidate here.

I don’t buy it

NYC Cops laud observant citizen who spotted truck bomb

Times Square Bomb Was a Dud

I don’t buy it. Any of my readers adept enough to balance the chemical equation xC3H8 + y02 --> nCO2 + kH20 (and that means you McGoo. And several others!) can take one micro-peep at this “terrorist bomb attempt” in Manhattan and smell a rat. I’m sorry. I know the splodey dopes are mega-stupid, but they aren’t this stupid. A couple of jerry cans of gasoline, a couple propane tanks, and a box of over the counter fireworks to set the thing off.

No. Sale.

Does. Not. Compute.

This was not a bomb. This was something that was supposed to look like a bomb. And if you are a real terrorist, what’s the point of planting a phony bomb that everyone outside of BMEWS is going to accept as a real one? But if you are NOT a terrorist, who profits by “saving the day” over a phony bombing attempt? Follow the money!

I buy into this story only half as much as I accept that the BP oil rig disaster was an accident. And I don’t buy that one at all.

New York City Police Investigate Failed New York City Bombing

Local and federal authorities worked Sunday to identify the person or group behind an “amateurish” but potentially powerful bomb planted inside a car parked in New York City’s Times Square. [ which you know will turn out to be some bunch of disgruntled skinhead hillbillies with 8 teeth to share amongst them. ]

Local and federal authorities worked Sunday to identify the person or group behind an “amateurish” but potentially powerful bomb planted inside a car parked in New York City’s Times Square.

Police found the bomb that apparently began to detonate but did not explode in a smoking sport utility vehicle on Saturday, prompting thousands of tourists to be cleared from the streets for 10 hours while the explosive was dismantled.

“We avoided what we could have been a very deadly event,” Mayor Michael Bloomberg said. “It certainly could have exploded and had a pretty big fire and a decent amount of explosive impact.”

Investigators removed three propane tanks, fireworks, two filled 5-gallon gasoline containers, and two clocks with batteries, electrical wire and other components from the back of the Nissan Pathfinder, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said. A black metal box resembling a gun locker was also recovered and will be detonated off site, he said.

Bloomberg called the explosive device “amateurish” and Kelly said the explosives were consumer-grade fireworks but could have caused huge damage on a block of Broadway theaters and restaurants teeming with tourists.

“I think the intent was to cause a significant ball of fire,” Kelly said.

Firefighters who arrived shortly after first call heard a popping sound, said Fire Commissioner Sal Cassano, who described the sound as not quite an explosion.

The bomb appeared to be starting to detonate but malfunctioned, top police spokesman Paul Browne told The New York Times and Wall Street Journal.

Horseshit. At least the undie-bomber’s rig would have blown up if it had been put together right. This was a false flag operation from the get-go.

It does not take Dr. Evil levels of genius to design a hella effective bomb. The basic Electronics Project Kit from Radio Shack would do it. A simple little circuit with just one 555 timing chip, 2 J-K flip flops, 4 6 volt solenoid driven valves, a spoonful of black powder and 4 broken flashbulbs ... and what was in this truck, assisted by the above balanced equation in physical form, could have at least taken out the windows on the better part of a city block. Especially if the Pathfinder had window and door gaskets enhanced to handle a few atmospheres. Um, like epoxy, or silicon caulk!

And the paki-tali trying to take credit for it? Double doody. No way in hell, given their ability to make IEDs that can take down tanks, and our unbelievably porous border, that they could not smuggle in some real explosives. So again ... follow the money.

Shamelessly stolen from Vilmar

I was thinking as I watched this: Christians are really tolerant. I’m Christian, and I was laughing at this video. Despite the fact that this guy is part of Richard Dawkins network. I’m perfectly able to laugh at myself and my beliefs.

Now, tell me, where are the Muslim comedians lampooning Mohammed? Don’t see/hear any do you? That’s because there’s nothing funny about murder and pedophilia. Mohammed engaged in both.

Islam is not a religion. It’s a fascist political movement.

Suddenly It’s Summer

Bit of weird weather here this week; even though it’s just the beginning of May it’s going to be in the 90s all week long. So naturally I’ve got loads of work to do. Did a clear out and clean up job yesterday for folks who are getting hardwood floors installed. Move all the furniture, tear up the old carpet. Got my cleaning jobs today. Got an apartment cleanup tomorrow, then come back when the painter is done and do the windows. Window job on a small home after that, then windows on another house, then a window job on a carriage house apartment. In between I have to fit window jobs for 2 of the condos here. Should be a busy week. Or two. Good.

Off to work, and then to buy various cleaners for tomorrow. I always “look forward” to those “the tenants trashed the place, come fix it” phone calls. Let’s see what to take up there ... drain snake, oven cleaner, scrub brush, scrubby sponges, bathtub cleaner, clorox, toilet brush, dryer vent brush, a couple 5 gallon buckets, glass cleaner, wood soap, Liquid Gold, dust cloths, vacuum, tools, toilet parts, scrapers, putty, caulk, Comet, drain cleaner, Goo Gone, tools, dusters, duct tape, rubber gloves, rages, paper towels, ...  Oh yeah, it’s gonna be a busy time.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.
