"Leave your backpack at home"?

And let terrorists win another one without them even having to put any work into it?

Seriously?

This is another of those moments where I consider life as a libertarian a little more seriously.

Yup. Seriously

But please forego the libertarian shtick; that's more or a pipe dream than The Internationale ever was.

Mood even fouler now...

...although I'll do my best to heed the advice.

I just turned on the TV to Power and Politics and the news about the trains.

The one place where we were safe from undue security theatre (but no less wary of genuine bad guys trying to pervert that to serve their own purposes, as all good railfans should be wary)...

Re: Mood even fouler now...

I hate to say it (because I had more than a stomachful of demos when I was younger), but I think I'm going to have to start going into the streets again. We all are.

Looking back over the last day...the police apparently had these two tagged and whatnot for about a year. No "Bill S-7" powers needed. At all. Which says something about police competence and political opportunism all at once. I like the former, but not the latter.

Those ain't dinos!

The best evidence today says that dinosaurs were not reptiles, but warm-blooded animals. And more, that birds are among their number.

Indeed, it makes sense that such huge critters wouldn't want to be dependable on temperature.

On dragons

Nevertheless, whether or not it's true, I like to think Komodo dragons resemble the creatures from which dinosaurs evolved 200+ million years ago. As if they were coelocanths of the land.

Sadly, your link tells me that is not the case. Ah well ...

Re: On dragons

Despair not. I'm sure there were all sorts of dinos out there :)
