00h UTC; WEDNESDAY, 1 AUGUST 2012: So a new month dawneth upon us all, and such is no reason not to stop discussing about the Things That Matter. Such as:
  • The fact of China's Xinhua news agency taking GOP Presidential wannabe Mitt Romney to task for his "hawkish" remarks during the weekend stop in Israel vis-a-vis the Palestinian Question, in its turn raising questions of subtle racism being a super-secret part of the Greater GOP/"Tea Party" agenda in Indecision 2012 as a who...

How does useless imagination inspire information?

00h UTC; TUESDAY, 31 JULY 2012: So let's get on wih things, shall we, readers:
  • With quite a few farmers in drought-stricken areas of the Midwest culling their cattle and hog herds due to the drought and limited feedstocks, some are suggesting that there could be a brief, yet substantial, glut of cheap beef and pork onto the market before prices start rising big time. Not to mention cheap mutton from New Zealand, to the chagrin of sheep farmers in the Midwestern and Roc...

00h UTC; MONDAY, 30 JULY 2012: A few things worth thinking about preparatory to July's segue into August:
  • If there's one thing as could be the saving grace for many thousands of drought-afflicted farmers across the Midwestern states trying to save their livelihoods from the worst such in 52 years (as per official records, know), it would have to be hay from Minnesota, where rain still manages to be abundant in large measure: Quite a few farmers in cent...

00h UTC; FRIDAY, 27 JULY 2012: Let's get on with it already, readers:
  • It appears as if the case against Aurora Theatre Massacree assailant James Holmes could be emerging, howbeit bit by bit: A University of Colorado professor reportedly received in the letterposts about a week before the Unfortunate Events a sketchbook filled with lurid details and stick-figure drawings showing a mass-murder incident that has attracted police enquiries.

  • Expect conspiracist prolefeeders to be working overtime in their Luscious Glory of misinformation and mischief targeting the Great Unwashed Masses vis-a-vis the real motivations of Aurora Theatre Massacree suspect James Holmes, especially considering where the court in Arapahoe County, Colorado has banned cameras and detailed coverage of the pre-trial proceedings when they resume wit...

00h UTC; MONDAY, 23 JULY 2012: Plenty of stuff worth tossing about for discussion, be it in response to this post or in its Facebook presence; hence, onward:
  • By now, you've heard that The State University of Pennsylvania (to use the polite name of Penn State), in response to the Infamous Pedophilia Scandal afflicting its storied football programme, removed its shrine-like statue of its late and at once beloved head football coach, Joe Paterno by name, just this morn...
