I hate cruise ships

Mexico bans cruise ship with Texas passenger under Ebola watch – LA Times.

I have to admit I’ve never been on a cruise, but the news from those ships is never good.

A couple of good videos

They both made me laugh:

This one is quite amusing about negotiating. If you can remove emotion, you’ll get a lot farther toward your goals. The emotion thing has to be on both sides to work.

From Sailer

Sailer is a national treasure. He deserves a much wider readership. A small sample:

How can the New York Times and the Obama Administration do their job of telling you what to think about this Defining Event of our Times when the local cops are free to release a security camera video on the Internet for the whole world to view? It’s just not fair: the Obama / Media Industrial Complex has all these highly expensive methods and minions for the engineering of human souls; yet a few wreckers at the local police force can undermine all that power and prestige just by posting evidence on Youtube.

Go read the whole thing. Go spend hours over there. Very enjoyable stuff. The comments are often great too.

But you know what? Not funny. Not once…

Heh…

WHAT WOULD HAMAS DO, IF IT COULD DO WHATEVER IT WANTED? As I’ve said, if Gaza turned out like Hamas wants, it would look a lot like the Islamic State in Iraq. If it turned out like Israel wants, it would look a lot like Santa Monica.

Insty is very witty. But you know what? Gaza should look like Santa Monica. Hell, I’d settle for Ocean Beach…

Another Side of Bob Dylan

Was released fifty years ago today.

The album includes My Back Pages. He was only 23 when he wrote that song.

There is an incredible body of work by Dylan that begins around here, maybe earlier, and goes all the way through to at least the late 70’s. I guess each Dylan fan will have his own span of years for his greatness.
