Tolling For Thee – Blame it on Mitch

While probably too soon for the Second Coming, most all can see the the path is set.

Pablo Picasso, Guernica

The insanity of pressing headlong into world wide conflict is baffling. Picasso’s piece still sums it up.

Anyway – another foray into poetry:

Eliot (not J’ames’ez’s dog this time)

The Hollow Men – by T.S Eliot

Mistah Kurtz-he dead
            A penny for the Old Guy

    We are the hollow men
    We are the stuffed men
    Leaning together
    Headpiece filled with straw. Alas!
    Our dried voices, when
    We whisper together
    Are quiet and meaningless
    As wind in dry grass
    Or rats’ feet over broken glass
    In our dry cellar

    Shape without form, shade without colour,
    Paralysed force, gesture without motion;

    Those who have crossed
    With direct eyes, to death’s other Kingdom
    Remember us-if at all-not as lost
    Violent souls, but only
    As the hollow men
    The stuffed men.
    Eyes I dare not meet in dreams
    In death’s dream kingdom
    These do not appear:
    There, the eyes are
    Sunlight on a broken column
    There, is a tree swinging
    And voices are
    In the wind’s singing
    More distant and more solemn
    Than a fading star.

    Let me be no nearer
    In death’s dream kingdom
    Let me also wear
    Such deliberate disguises
    Rat’s coat, crowskin, crossed staves
    In a field
    Behaving as the wind behaves
    No nearer-

    Not that final meeting
    In the twilight kingdom
    This is the dead land
    This is cactus land
    Here the stone images
    Are raised, here they receive
    The supplication of a dead man’s hand
    Under the twinkle of a fading star.

    Is it like this
    In death’s other kingdom
    Waking alone
    At the hour when we are
    Trembling with tenderness
    Lips that would kiss
    Form prayers to broken stone.
    The eyes are not here
    There are no eyes here
    In this valley of dying stars
    In this hollow valley
    This broken jaw of our lost kingdoms

    In this last of meeting places
    We grope together
    And avoid speech
    Gathered on this beach of the tumid river

    Sightless, unless
    The eyes reappear
    As the perpetual star
    Multifoliate rose
    Of death’s twilight kingdom
    The hope only
    Of empty men.
Here we go round the prickly pear
    Prickly pear prickly pear
    Here we go round the prickly pear
    At five o’clock in the morning.

    Between the idea
    And the reality
    Between the motion
    And the act
    Falls the Shadow
For Thine is the Kingdom

    Between the conception
    And the creation
    Between the emotion
    And the response
    Falls the Shadow
Life is very long

    Between the desire
    And the spasm
    Between the potency
    And the existence
    Between the essence
    And the descent
    Falls the Shadow
For Thine is the Kingdom

    For Thine is
    Life is
    For Thine is the

This is the way the world ends
    This is the way the world ends
    This is the way the world ends
    Not with a bang but a whimper.

I Felt a Funeral, in my Brain” by Emily Dickinson

“I felt a Funeral, in my Brain,

And Mourners to and fro

Kept treading – treading – till it seemed

That Sense was breaking through –

And when they all were seated,

A Service, like a Drum –

Kept beating – beating – till I thought

My mind was going numb –

And then I heard them lift a Box

And creak across my Soul

With those same Boots of Lead, again,

Then Space – began to toll,

As all the Heavens were a Bell,

And Being, but an Ear,

And I, and Silence, some strange Race,

Wrecked, solitary, here –

And then a Plank in Reason, broke,

And I dropped down, and down –

And hit a World, at every plunge,

And Finished knowing – then –”

Mad Girl’s Love Song” by Sylvia Plath

“I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead;I lift my lids and all is born again.(I think I made you up inside my head.)

The stars go waltzing out in blue and red,And arbitrary blackness gallops in:I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.

I dreamed that you bewitched me into bedAnd sung me moon-struck, kissed me quite insane.(I think I made you up inside my head.)

God topples from the sky, hell’s fires fade:Exit seraphim and Satan’s men:I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.

I fancied you’d return the way you said,But I grow old and I forget your name.(I think I made you up inside my head.)

I should have loved a thunderbird instead;At least when spring comes they roar back again.I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.(I think I made you up inside my head.)”

In the Desert – By Stephen Crane

In the desert

I saw a creature, naked, bestial,

Who, squatting upon the ground,

Held his heart in his hands,

And ate of it.

I said, “Is it good, friend?”

“It is bitter—bitter,” he answered;

“But I like it

“Because it is bitter,

“And because it is my heart.”

“You Are Tired (I Think)” by E.E. Cummings

You are tired,
(I think)
Of the always puzzle of living and doing;
And so am I.

Come with me, then,
And we’ll leave it far and far away—
(Only you and I, understand!)

You have played,
(I think)
And broke the toys you were fondest of,
And are a little tired now;
Tired of things that break, and—
Just tired.
So am I.

I still have hope that we will be something like we were once – again before I die –

Bluebird – by Charles Bukowski

there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I’m too tough for him,
I say, stay in there, I’m not going
to let anybody see
there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I pour whiskey on him and inhale
cigarette smoke
and the whores and the bartenders
and the grocery clerks
never know that
in there.

there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I’m too tough for him,
I say,
stay down, do you want to mess
me up?
you want to screw up the
you want to blow my book sales in
there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I’m too clever, I only let him out
at night sometimes
when everybody’s asleep.
I say, I know that you’re there,
so don’t be
then I put him back,
but he’s singing a little
in there, I haven’t quite let him
and we sleep together like
with our
secret pact
and it’s nice enough to
make a man
weep, but I don’t
weep, do

Next time i think i’ll do an exotic game dinner poat…



  1. Woof.

    *reads again*


  2. Great art, great poems, monkey.

  3. Gonna go pick my dinner salad. Life is nice in Spring. We like Spring.

  4. wakey wakey

  5. I’ll sound like a rube but I’ve always loved Emily Dickenson’s poetry. Strange, I just found, yesterday, going through stuff, a book of her poetry.

  6. Garden radish recommendations: ‘Pink Beauty’ is great. Crunchy and juicy even when they get a little too large, and just a mild spiciness, I am eating them like little apples. Radish variety ‘de 18 Jours,’ meh. Long French-breakfast type, unpleasantly hot, and gets pithy early. If you grow it, it does develop super fast but you need to eat them before they get to 30 days or so. And use a cream dressing to cut the heat.

  7. They give me heartburn.

  8. This says it all:

  9. I love radishes. I eat them with salt as a snack.

  10. I love them too.

  11. Add corey Taylor to the list of metal artists who support the military.

  12. I like the white varieties, because they are a bit spicier.

    Plus the whole white supremacy angle.

  13. MJ, what’s the best cream dressing?

  14. If you let radishes bolt, they produce scads of seed fruits that are like tiny snap pea pods. But they are crisp and juicy and taste like radish. Pretty great tossed by the handful whole in a salad. The texture is nice in there.

  15. Chantilly

  16. So now that we’re getting close to a month after the Supreme Court had a leaker, what’s the likelihood we’ll ever know who did it?


    How hard do you think they’re trying to find the leaker?

  17. oh look, cops sat on their hands for 30 minutes in Uvalde, while parents screamed at them to go in. instead they arrest the parents.

  18. Otto is successfully de-nutted. Lucy is scheduled for August, and then every dog in my house will be non-binary.

    Otto weighed in at 88 pounds yesterday and he’s not 8 months. I think we’re looking at 120+ finished weight. He’s a big boy.

  19. Pat called me this morning about that. The video has no context. Or not that I’ve read. Last night Pat argued that it was fishy that it was border agents that got there first? Way too many non-details out right now for me to weave a conspiracy theory just yet.

    Also – the leaker. I thought for sure they’d pursue that. I hate being wrong, but it’s looking more and more likely they’re hoping we just forget about it, and we KNOW the media doesn’t care.

    I assume it was an intern in collusion with powerful forces.

  20. might want to check the de-nutting for lucy, there might be complications in that one.

  21. In the latest white supremacy racism news, evidently some baseball player (white) called some black asshole on another team “Jackie” because “Jackie” is a shortstop and referred to himself as potentially the modern day Jackie Robinson.

    So of course that was ripe for mocking, but since it was a white guy mocking a black dude, it’s racist.

  22. yup, and the PETA vegetarian manager LaRussa poured gas on the racism fire.

  23. do you guys even read my comments?

  24. Lucy identifies as a male (she’s pretty dominate). If she wants to be de-nutted, why are you misgendering her?

  25. I do, but I know fuckall about beisbol or futbol.

  26. When I visited my brother in Salzburg we went to the Augustiner Brewery and drank large mugs of beer (I’ve got one around here somewhere). They had a lot of food options but since we could barely afford the beer we went with the cheapest options available which were radishes.

    The ones shown at the link are fancier than the ones I ate.

  27. I saw a lot of flag hats in interviews, so it doesn’t surprise me to hear there were arrests of zealous parents. Profiling, I know. The reports are coming from Jack Posobiec too, and he’s usually not far from the truth.

  28. the germans like their radishes. I remember that from some tastings. Moron Heather Radish is now living in germany, too.

  29. put your tin foil hats on for this

    Georgia rigged to give Kemp a bigger win?

  30. Emerald has a point, the polls were off from Trafalgar results, and he’s been spot on for the last 10 years.

  31. I have 2 million peas to eat. Someone should have told me they grow like a mfer.

  32. You can feed the extras to your chickens, MJ.

    What’s that? No chickens? Sucks to be you.

  33. fried rice is the answer

  34. Comment by Jay in Ames on May 26, 2022 8:40 am
    I like the white varieties, because they are a bit spicier.

    Plus the whole white supremacy angle.



  35. Sorry, Jay, I do read your comments, but I’ve been having a hard time keeping up of late, so I missed it.

  36. No chickens.

    If it’s true that police waiting for 40 mins before doing anything at the school then I’m joining the left. Defund the police. They don’t need more money for tanks, they need to be willing to die to protect people.

  37. Fried rice is always the answer.

  38. Flyed lice.

  39. you’ve been working on the boat a lot, yes? is everything going ok now, in the water?

  40. Went in yesterday. Going up there today for a long weekend of relaxing and deck scrubbing.

  41. on the other hand, we’ve spent 2 years and countless riots telling cops we don’t have their back. So no wonder they aren’t chomping at the bit to rush into danger.

  42. are you on Erie, or Huron?

  43. If it’s true that police waiting for 40 mins before doing anything at the school then I’m joining the left. Defund the police. They don’t need more money for tanks, they need to be willing to die to protect people.

    This. We’d have been better off with one of the dads volunteering to hang out at the school with a rifle just in case.

  44. on the other hand, we’ve spent 2 years and countless riots telling cops we don’t have their back. So no wonder they aren’t chomping at the bit to rush into danger.
    It’s an interesting point. But if they’re willingness to do their job is contingent on the public’s support before they will save children…we’re in a bad place.

    I can’t square that circle. And yes, we are making massive generalizations here…

  45. Maybe the real problem is gathering huge groups of defenseless people into a single building and having a small number of exits most of them can’t use anyhow because they are too small to open doors.

  46. I’m on your side of the argument, that’s what they should do, as cops, and as men. It’s our job.

    but this happened in Parkland too. That one sat back as kids were killed too, after lessons in Colombine showed that early intervention was the most successful. It’s what SEALs and Delta do.

    but at least that sheriff has a new job

  47. Fried rice is a good way to use up eggs, too.

    From the chickens that you don’t have.

  48. If police morale is keeping them from rushing into harm’s way, it’s like Chris Rock put it…I’m not saying I agree…but I understand.

  49. Sow the wind, reap the whirlwind, etc.

  50. There’s a pretty big difference between your average ticket-writing cop and a Seal/special forces.

  51. I can’t guess what percentage of the police force is of the “I’M GOING IN” mentality. I do know that when it happened in Oxford, the cops DID rush in.

  52. It would be interesting to know what % of cops in certain districts are ex-military. Whether that makes a difference.

  53. I know there is a difference, Car in, no comparison was intended. Speed is the key, I was trying to point that out.

  54. “I can’t guess what percentage of the police force is of the “I’M GOING IN” mentality.”

    One important part of training is, in addition to improving your own skills, figuring out who around you doesn’t have your back in tactical situations. You still might find yourself in a situation where it’s just you and Freezy McFreezerson over there, but at least you know in advance and can adjust your plan accordingly.

  55. Watching some of the interviews yesterday, I’d hand a pistol to the first dad that was one, wearing a camo flag hat, and calmly answering questions. He did not look like someone to mess with. I’d bet he would have someone’s back.

  56. I tell work stories all the time, partly for entertainment value and partly for lessons learned. That includes the “don’t screw up like I did” lessons learned. No shame in that, we’re all human, just need to learn from the past and get it better next time.

    As a rule, when telling a work story, I leave out the name of the person who screwed up (unless it was me). The point is the knowledge, not to embarrass anyone. But I do have one work story where I say the guy’s name, because the lesson learned is “that guy doesn’t have your back, and might very well put a round in your skull through sheer incompetence.”

    That guy is now in management where hopefully he leaves his gun locked in a drawer. Thank goodness for that.

  57. I’m on your side of the argument, that’s what they should do, as cops, and as men. It’s our job.
    Yeah, I totally get that we’re on the same page. I’d like to think that I’d go charging in to save a bunch of kids but who knows.

    But the police? It’s their job.

  58. twitter: new car sales forecast to drop 20.9% in May

    Unusual Whales has some pretty interesting stats.

  59. Pretty much the same reason we’re getting a 47hp tractor instead of a 39. We can actually get the 47hp.

  60. The parents on site were yelling/begging for the cops to go in.


  61. “WTAF?”

    Yeah, that’s bonkers.

  62. I’m waiting for context on this.

  63. I had limited options on some of the tv channels when I traveled out here. Radio stations sometimes too. Came across some religious programs and stuck around to see what they are up to these days. Lots of End of the World stuff. Rapture. Beastman is a coming. Also lots of tie-ins with UFO phenomena. I’m not one to get into this sort of thing normally…but.


    The world is in A Very Bad Place and it’s going to get much worse I fear. We are ruled by evil people. Not wrong, misguided, or stupid. Evil. Soulless. Psychopaths. I’ll admit, I’m a soft dude not meant for Hard Times. What to do when all options look bad?

  64. Oh, there’s a bathroom on the right.

  65. The parents on site were yelling/begging for the cops to go in.


    I heard on the news that the Texas Rangers (not the baseball team) have stepped into the investigation. Only speculation on my part, but maybe they’re investigating the police response, or lack thereof. If what witnesses are saying is true there definitely appears to be mass dereliction of duty on the part of the police. Heads should roll if the witness accounts turn out to be true.

  66. ” I’ll admit, I’m a soft dude not meant for Hard Times. What to do when all options look bad?”

    At the risk of sounding flippant, maybe consider hardening up a bit? I’m not talking about turning into a navy seal, but rather evaluating some aspects of your life and thinking of a few small changes in two or three areas at most.

  67. This makes me want to throw up:

    “When the cops came, the cop said: ‘Yell if you need help!’ And one of the persons in my class said ‘help.’ The [shooter] overheard and he came in and shot her,” the boy said.

  68. Ray Liotta has died, 67

  69. maybe consider hardening up a bit?

    That sounds like work and other bad things. It would cut into my whining online time for sure. Can’t have THAT.

  70. What part of Flur Duh do you live in?

  71. Wow, 67 is really young.

  72. Shooter distraction is incredibly effective.

    Waiting is not.

  73. He never came across as a super healthy type of person.

  74. I read (or heard) somewhere that taking on an active shooter with 2 LEO’s increases the success considerably. Seems logical but who knows, maybe it’s BS.

  75. He’s only one guy with a rifle. He can’t shoot two targets at once. He points at one the other guy shoots him, situation over.

  76. What part of Flur Duh do you live in?


  77. Zephyrhills Sobek, about an hour northeast of Tampa Bay.

    I avoid all TV “news”. Everything about this massacre keeps getting worse.

    There’sa guy with a tattoo of Peewee Herman on his leg at this sandwich shop.

  78. Monster hungter also said when a shooter is confronted by TWO – his hesitation as he tries to assess who to shoot first gives the good guys the advantage.

  79. Something doesn’t make sense.

    Parents were yelling at cops to go in…wouldn’t the parents have gone in rather than just talk about it? Were the cops holding the parents back?

    I dunno. Car in is wise to wait and see. This is probably a lie by the media.

  80. Just downed a grande nitro cold brew as a pre-workout for my 8 mile run. As soon as I go pee, then I’m ready.

  81. doggone it

  82. Disparaging the police in this matter supports the idea that the only option is to ban guns. Plus, cops can never be heroes because they’re bad.

    I dunno.

    I’m waiting. On everything.

  83. The cops literally handcuffed a parent, MJ, at least per the reports I’m seeing.

  84. I don’t have to wait on shit. It’s not like I’m a juror. Besides, we will never know the reality of anything. For example the Las Vegas shooting. HTF do we not know anything about that situation?

    MJ, they had some parents face down on the ground because they were belligerent.

  85. Monster hungter also said when a shooter is confronted by TWO
    that was it

  86. “…about an hour northeast of Tampa Bay.”

    Bummer. I’m going to be in Miami this July, but that’s a bit too far away.

  87. I watched the video. That could have been from afterward?

    There’s just so much that seems untrue. There were half a dozen cops intent on holding back parents, not stopping the gunman? I dunno. Seems like it was later.

  88. never meet up with a croc in florida, would be unwise

  89. Beto will only win with mail-in ballots

  90. Brief video clips I saw there was caution tape up. That comes much later, after the building is secured. Those parents had no news on their children and were understandably distraught, and there may have been a delay in door kicking, but the video I saw had to be when the cleanup was beginning, not when it was an active scene.

  91. First you get the Pestilence, then you get the Famine…

    Diesel was already going to make hay expensive and thus beef and lamb. This is going to hammer meat prices.


  93. Click on the:…..

    A woman was in hand cuffs outside the school, convinced them to remove them then ran in the school and got her two kids and ran out.

  94. I’m not seeing enough love, adulation, thoughts & prayers to Saint Floyd of Fentanyl around here you racists.

  95. We did sacrifice 12 souls to him last summer. Is that enough?

  96. Why not 13? Why don’t you have a mural of St Floyd yet? Did your children have a day of learning about St Floyd during Black History Month?

  97. “She said she saw a father tackled and thrown to the ground by police and a third pepper-sprayed. Once freed from her cuffs, Ms. Gomez made her distance from the crowd, jumped the school fence, and ran inside to grab her two children. She sprinted out of the school with them.”…

  98. How dare that woman make those cops look bad! I hope they find and arrest her. She probably doesn’t even pray to St. Floyd or give her kids puberty blockers or teach them the beauty and wonders of transgenderitarianism.

  99. twitter: timeline in Uvalde

    Donuts weren’t listed. I’m sure its an oversight.

    He was in a room of kids for an hour, without busting down the door.

  100. “He was in a room of kids for an hour, without busting down the door.”

    Yes, but I’m confused. Had he already killed everyone in the room at that point?

  101. You jest about St. Floyd, but had the kid in Texas been black we’d be seeing riots in every city in the country right now because of the excessive force used by the border patrol cop.

  102. Jay, I’m on Lake Michigan about 2/3 of the way between Manistee and Frankfort – little town named Arcadia.

  103. there is a report that the cops called out to the students, to see who needed help. One girl said Help, and he walked over and shot her.

    Anecdotal, but he didn’t kill everyone and stop, according to that. it will depend on what happened.

    Not everyone died instantly either, they never do. So some were shot right away and left to die. I think that’s terrible.

  104. Michigan, so a little trip, nice! Caught me a big ole salmon on Michigan once, that was fun.

  105. Yes, but I’m confused. Had he already killed everyone in the room at that point?

    I bet many could have been saved if they got medical attention more quickly. But no. Cops had to make sure those parents behaved themselves.

    And DNH is probably correct.

  106. Arcania?

  107. No particular reason why, but I had the impression Hotspur was in Florida or the upper eastern seaboard. Probably because of the sailing avatar.

  108. lots of support for Beta on that thread

  109. Someone needs to force feed Be to that plate full of “avocado dip” he tried to trick his girlfriend/wife to eat.
    Perhaps someone already has, they say you are what you eat.

  110. Doctrine changed after Columbine. Previously, the objective was to contain the shooter, then negotiate and assault if necessary. In the Columbine attack, they just used the time to kill students. Because of that, they realized that they could minimize the casualties by immediately confronting the gunman. The most important thing was speed.

    It really sounds like in this case they contained the gunman, then waited awhile before going in. I can’t imagine standing around outside waiting for the cops to do something while I could hear my kid being shot.

  111. so, Ramos was outside the school firing shots for 12 minutes before entering the school. New information

    And no one stopped him then? Evidently he was NOT encountered by a SRO, as was previously released. Not good for the authorities on scene.

  112. No way the police comes out looking good in this. It’s a complete clusterfuck. And they know it. Time to circle those wagons boys.

  113. Who’s gonna be #3?

  114. Robby Mook

  115. I much prefer sailing the Great Lakes. Salt water takes a huge toll on boats. Mine is thirty years old and it’s in pristine condition. Bottom stays clean as a whistle – no barnacles.

  116. no barnacles?

    Then what will you do with a drunken sailor?

  117. We usually put him to bed until he’s sober, then shave his belly with a rusty razor, then put him in the bilge and make him drink it.

  118. We did that to Mare one time and she got all mad.

  119. But next day she just got drunk again.

  120. A keelhaul would have cured her

  121. Makes sense, HS. Just stay off Erie. I hear zebra mussels can real havoc, OTOH, fish caught in Erie are now far more safe for consumption due to zebra mussels than the days when the Cuyahoga River spontaneously burst in flames.

  122. Good point.

  123. At Ace’s:

    “Conservative friends of good faith: where can we meet in the middle with Democrats to address gun violence in schools?”

    I’m willing to talk about any solution, compromise or not. All I ask is that, in order to ensure good faith, any proposed solution have a reasonable likelihood of addressing the problem. Otherwise, I’m not the one negotiating in bad faith.

  124. Erie is a very shallow lake. Very choppy compared to the long swells of Huron and Michigan. There are zebra mussels in Michigan, but not that bad compared to Lake Erie and Huron.

  125. This guy will never eat salmon from Lake Michigan.
    Why voluntarily French the collective asshole of the city of Chicago?

  126. I should get a trailer for my bike so I don’t have to burn gas to get diesel for the tractor.

  127. Lake Michigan flows to the Chicago River then to the Mississippi, so no chance of getting their pollution up here. Salmon from this lake is super good.

  128. I have survived multiple meals of Michigan fish, usually battered and fried.

  129. Sobek, I don’t believe there’s a solution government can provide that doesn’t enable the creeping socialism we’re seeing, other than the impossible task of mandating both parents be equally involved in raising the kids they spawn, and accept the fact that a spanking for misbehavior isn’t abuse, it’s punishment, even if dad uses the belt. It doesn’t require, as Hillary said, a village to raise a child, it takes a mom & dad equally & collectively, regardless of WTF a social worker/divorce court judge says. Consider said judges earned their degrees and climbed the ladder while they themselves had zero children of their own, so know not a damned thing of which they speak.

  130. Leon, were those fish women when you were in college?

  131. “Sobek, I don’t believe there’s a solution government can provide that doesn’t enable the creeping socialism we’re seeing…”

    I know, but that’s my response to the DO SOMETHING crowd. Fine. Let’s do something. But that something has to be reasonably likely to produce a desired result, or else you’re just impinging on the freedom of self defense with no safety benefit.

  132. Nah, only one GF in college and her dad ran fishing charters. If the KofC knew how good his fish fries were they’d have sent missionaries to his house on the regular.

  133. First step, Sobek. Give dads more rights. Dads don’t take shit from kids like moms do. I know. I inherited a 10 & 14 y.o. when V & I got together when I was 24. Neither dad was there for their kids, olders dad regularly paid support but was never there, youngest dad rarely paid support but we’d find him at a bar on weekends when we went out, which was awkward for me many times. However he now gives her vehicles he’s ready to trade in, which I suppose means something, probably a tax write off.
