Ignoble Awards,  I mean,  presented by the  Journal of Improbable Research.   These should cure  you of any notion that scientific research is a dull,  boring,  totally not funky field of endeavor.

Chicken ESPN…

Singer Hank Williams,  Jr.  now has  firsthand knowledge  of what happens when you criticize His Oneness.   Your song,  which is essentially the unofficial anthem of the football season,  gets dropped.  Perhaps the ESPN executives should borrow a little of the testosterone from the players.

Hunting good…

leave a comment »

As a group,  hunters are a generous group.  S. E. Cupp has a sweet piece on some  of the good they do,  and all without government help.

Yeah,  nearly everybody in my extended family hunts,  because it’s an enjoyable pursuit which often nets you tasty things for your table.
