19h UTC; WEDNESDAY, 18 DECEMBER 2013: First, Your Correspondent owes all of you an Appy Polly Loggy for being unable to post yesterday inasmuch as he was pressed for time in between a lunch date with Mein Innkeeper Friend and the annual bus tour of the local housing authority to see the Rotary Lights in LaCrosse last evening, preceded by dinner at North Country Steak Buffet, that city. Hopefully, this post should more than compensate therefor.

Things That Shouldn't Happen Among "Tea Party" Followers, what with their expected to be Paragons of Traditional Christian Moral and Familial Values and Identity as will Reclaim Thy Dear and Lovely Land: Your Correspondent hath it that a "Tea Party Patriots" member of high and peerless standing has been arrested on charges of perousing and downloading Child Pornography; one particularly noisome cluedo: His using "HornyPastor" as part of his e-mail address.

Tell me this isn't the acme of Far Right doublethink, and then some: The same Larry "Judicial Watch" Klayman behind a quasi-successful legal challenge of the National Security Agency's warrantless and intrusive monitoring of stateside telephonic conversations in the name of "preempting notorious terrorist acts" on Constitutional grounds (in particular the Fourth Amendment ban on warrantless searches and seizures) is also the same Larry Klayman calling for "REAL AmeriKKKa" to engage in armed insurrection and ultraviolence "to save Our Republic and its Constitution." See the irony, the doublethink even?

We can do without Fox News' "War On Christmas" exugenesis in this instance: For nearly 50 years, the CBC Radio news review As It Happens hath this fascination for the Julebukk (a straw goat traditional to Swedish Christmas commemorations) displayed in the central square of Gavle, Sweden (otherwise famous as the home of the Cup of Johann) every Christmas season, being a target for destruction by fire by local pranksters (as seems to be the case every year)--and the attempts city officials have made to preempt the annual arson display with flame retardants (one such a few years back not going that well when the Julebukk suddenly got discoloured after flame retardant was applied).

"Pruno," that infamously lurid and tasteless prison wine, isn't the sort likely to be reviewed anytime soon by the critics of Wine Spectator or similar publications, what with its rather dodgy methods of production and distillation--even if pruno is made to get around penal-system proscriptions on alcoholic beverages, thus requiring all manner of creativity to conceal its manufacture and output. The which I bring up because of an item on last night's As It Happens (as also gave moi the item previous) which took note of a recent article in the Annals of Emergency Medicine about a case in Utah's state prison last year which saw eight of its inmates suffer the effects of botulism poisoning from a batch of Pruno where potatoes were used in manufacture (and know, potatoes are a major carrier of the botulism toxin, specifically in the skin; the fermentation process of said Pruno actually allowed the botulism toxin to spread like wildfire in the finished product).

(Historical sidelight: Botulism poisoning was the undoing of Bon Vivant Foods, a New Jersey-based canner of gourmet foods, in 1971 after a batch of its canned Vichyssoise was found to be thus contanimate; researchers found issues with the manufacturing process as made matters worse.)

So much for Christelike Nasionale Tuisonderwys being the vanguard for "REAL AmeriKKKa" (as in "poor white," Bible-Believing Christians) to Save Thy Dear and Lovely Land from Itself and Achieve the Final Perfection of God's Zion: Witness these case studies of Christian Homeschooled children actually turning against their parents who saw homeschooling as Their Last and Only Hope for such ends as aforementioned, with the parents essentially reduced to disowning the rebellious offspring by suggesting they must be Under Some Class of Satanic Influence.

radio series Vic and Sade through the years)
