The Martian Influence in WWI Exposed

The government coverup will never work, the truth will overcome the lies.
HA, this History Channel show looks like it could be pretty good. Their real history is so bad, what the hell?
Beats another pawn shop show...

Horror Sells

Around this time of year, things get a little spooky. Nature, all around us is dying. Days are getting shorter. People say the veil between the dead & the living is it's thinnest and the ability of the capricious spirits to foment their malevolent tricks on the living is at it's easiest.
So what a perfect time for some RNC fear mongering.

CRANLEY!

After loud complaints and Mayoral condemnation concerning the horrible trash pick up policies promoted by the hated Mallory, Qualls, quinlivan cartel, turns out most people are AOK with it.
Results of a recent survey show a vast majority, 80-90%, are perfectly happy with their horrible schemes.
hmmm….

PISA


First I heard of this group was in Pat Buchanan's The Sky is Falling book where he cites a study of the PISA results published by virginiadare.com.
Like the video, it states that US schools ain't bad. But that author breaks things down by ethnicity & points out the US average core is weighed down by African Americans and Hispanics while Euro Americans & Asian Americans have very good scores. He also points out that Hispanics in the US schools did better than Hispanics in Central & South American countries.
So, maybe our schools are doing something right?
Here's one of the graphs that is missing on the site.
As the vdare guy says, there's a ton of data and he does not cite a lot of factors like student wealth or if the kid lives in a rural or urban area. You could break it down to poor rural Asians v. wealthy urban Hispanics, single parent v. double parent, ethnicity of adopted parents & see where it gets you, but the bottom line is not the initial, overall national scores.

Monzel v Feeney v Tarbell

Dan Hurley takes on the Hamilton County commissioner's race.
Monzel spins his soviet style, bistro math, knee jerk style of government.
Feeney gets raked over the coals for playing the game as the rules go & not playing the backroom deals game.
Tarbell seems somewhat coherent & shows some life attacking Feeney at the last moment.

Contrasts in Journalism

As the newspapers roll out their endorsements, it's interesting to see who they pick and, especially with the Cincinnati Enquirer, how they pick. The Fishwarp should have ben given some sort of award for twisting, writhing, backpedalling endorsement of John Cranley for mayor. Their endorsements this year have almost been on a par and their endorsement of Mitch McConnell is right in there.
Meanwhile, The Lexington Herald Leader is pretty darn clear in theier endorsement of Alison Lundergan Grimes and so is the Louisville Courier Journal.
The Fshwarp is the paper of record for a chunk of Kentucky, so it's not like they should keep their mouth shut but the timidity of their endorsement contrasted against the 2 Kentucky papers (one also a Gannett paper) is striking.

The Finishing Line

This 1977 documentary was made to get kids to quit playing around the train tracks. Like that's even possible.
Anyhoo, it was shocking enough that the film was abandoned & banned.
The kid that was fantasizing the whole thing is definitely my kind of guy. Unfortunately, in typical cheap ass British film making tradition, it's pretty sparse on special effects. Americans & Japanese would have a lot more gore, mutilation & dismemberment. Still, it has that eerie British The Prisoner thing going on.
