    Raylan meets Lovejoy

    The whole deadwood discussion seems like an unhelpful distraction...

    That's funny, there was always lots of swearing and violence to liven things up when it was on the telly... but yes, it was distracting.

    NSFW, Children, sheltered adults or in front of horses...

    Maimai Vice II

    It seems well past time for Mallard to move on.

    Would it be churlish (or even actionable) to note then,
    the irony of Duck Season opening on May Day?

    I think someone already got
    the Northern Shoveler,
    Shelduck'll be right
    and Paradise is next!

    The buckshot stops where?

    a dearth in the family…

    It features a lot of cuddling and caressing

    If ever
    any nation
    ever needed
    a lot of
    cuddling
    and
    caressing
    it is
    as ever
    America*
    right
    now



    Sorry!

    Listening to Joe Biden recently…
    the things their leaders say

    Someone
    give that country
    a hug
    and then
    get it to
    stand back

    and take a long
    hard look
    at itself

    <mirror implicit>

    *needs
    an US

    <subtitle stack>
    Not my birthday,
    but the above was
    many happy returns

    [edit] ...or falling!

    I’m also puzzled by the no frills ordinary bloke claims

    +1
    I don't know any 'ordinary blokes' who went to a posh Harvard business school - Cunliffe might not want to mention that too often either, if that's where he is looking for votes...

    ...spooky a Harvard just flew over the house!

    ...Vintage BFM 91.8 t shirt circa 1987

    I've got one of those somewhere - not mint,
    but probably sorta smelly...

    Morning Report would choose that particular clique

    Not helped by Espiner's near constant attempts at point scoring and putting His view forward, often over the top of those trying to answer his self serving questions - he's another one that needs to get out of his own way, and let things flow...
    people might respect his opinions more then.

    ...those who only have a passing interest in politics.

    there's the trick converting them to
    'having a parsing interest'...
    ...though as you point out it seems
    many do so instinctively.

  • Hard News: Jones: The contender leaves, in reply to Bart Janssen,

    ... the job was created and then Jones was
    identified as the top prospect for it..
    So you believe what politicians say?

    Why not, it seems totally credible that the National mindset might have 'Jones-shaped' receptors...

  • Access: Disability, identity and the internet,

    The Press misses a chance to champion disabled people's rights:
    In a story all about the CDHB (Canterbury District Health Board) submission on the Building (Earthquake-prone Buildings) Amendment Bill.
    One councillor (part-time clown Aaron Keown) was all for stickers for earthquake prone buildings while largely ignoring the more sensible focus of councillor Jo Kane's disagreement..

    "..with the bill's proposal to remove the requirement for building owners to improve access for people with disabilities while strengthening work was being carried out - a proposal the CDHB submission said was "inconsistent with the Humans Rights Act".
    "What a cop-out for the whole of New Zealand. Of course it's always about money, but it should be about people,"

    Mea culpa - I confess I missed that aspect on first reading, I was more pissed off at Keown's usual counter-productive publicity seeking subversion of process - thanks to the anonymous 'Analyst' commenter for jumping on it roundly)
