First of all, I don’t really care about basketball and second, who cares about European basketball?

From what I understand, the NBA is on strike, which will effect me just about as much as when the hockey players lost a season a few years ago. But here’s a story about some Spanish team doing well, or something. Are these guys kidding us or are there really people following Spanish basketball teams? Just wondering.

But in the meantime, there can be no debate on global warming on campus because the science is settled.

Not even at MIT.

Say, here’s a surprise!

Vermont Greens discover problems with wind farms. You know, we over here on the right aren’t complete idiots, we just tend to think things through past “good intentions”.

Funny movies

I suppose because of  my heritage, I’m willing to watch silent movies, but if you haven’t seen “Safety Last” (1919)  you’re missing out. Harold Lloyd did all his own stunts and everything you ever saw in a modern movie in the way of crazy acts was invented by this man. Really: Hollywood’s just been duplicating his inventions for the past 90 years. Absolutely hilarious, and I’m sure you can get it from NetFlix. Spend a few bucks and be rewarded.

Creek report

Half-an-hour before high tide, still several feet (well, 2′, at least) below the seawall, so no problems here.

Thinking of jokes

I mentioned to Last Liberal Standing that we should share popcorn at a movie together and that got me to thinking. You’d never believe it, but (some) real estate lawyers have a sense of humor, notably, the two Kaye brothers, Joel and Jeremy and their honorary brother, Tom Ward, who was abandoned as an infant on the Kaye doorstep and raised as a Gentile in a Jewish home.

You would expect Tom and Joel to have a wicked sense of humor, and they do, but if you ever have the good fortune to have a closing with Jeremy, as buyer or seller, you really must insist – put it in the sales contract, if need be – that Jeremy agree to tell you both his jury picking/goat f”’ing joke and his popcorn/Parkinson’s Disease story. Not only does the guy have his accents down perfectly, but coming from such a sweet looking, soft speaking guy (unless you’re negotiating with him) the shock of hearing risqué jokes is doubly hilarious.

My real estate tip of the day.

Cry me a river (but don’t you dare step in it)

We should be shed of him in five years or so

Robert Redford disappointed with Obama. This man flies private jets, owns thousands of acres of Wyoming land that he’s shut to the public, and claims he’s disappointed in the president not preserving the Redford private land trust? This is a family friendly blog, but Bobby, screw you, you friggin’ dwarf.
