    TGBDS: Epic Randomness

    Took a 45 mile motor, not sail, today as there was no wind at all. New motor with newly repitched prop gets 15 mpg at just under hull speed and 75% power. Basically the same as an SUV...and I can live in the boat if necessary!

    The right of some directly affected noncitizens (they actually are residents) to vote in a very specific, very delimited submunicipal election where they have a direct interest in the welfare of their children? Yes. However I do not know your second assertion at all. And your source doesn't provide evidence of it that I can see.

    Sometimes, it's not so much that facts have a liberal bias as that conservative (and other uber-partisan) factoids are out-of-context and suggest misleading inferences. This is rampant in, for example, climate denial blogging. Factoids can be true/true-ish and still be totally irrelevant/very misleading.

    You probably should have included that this is in school board elections only for parents with actual kids in school! As taxpayers with kids, one can easily make a case for doing so. Specifically the proposal is: "To be able to register to vote in the Board of Education election, non-citizens must be residents of San Francisco, at least 18 years old on election day and parents, legal guardians or caregivers of children under the age of 19 who also reside in San Francisco." This is hardly the blanket context you describe above. A number of Canadian municipalities across the country are looking into this at both the school board and municipal level. There is no looking at voting in other elections in Canada, nor do I see any such push in your link.

    Many might think we saw "collusion" quite clearly right there on stage today. I certainly cannot think of another word to put on it. The "bias" I have seen in the intel community over the years is hardly the sort to make up lies about a serving republican president. It most usually takes the form of using a threat analysis as an indication of actual enemy policies. This is in the nature of the beast: The intel analyst has to assume that if a threat exists it may end up being actually used.

    I wonder how the individuals within the intel community feel today that the pres takes the word of the KGB/GRU/etc. over their own. Probably makes them quite proud to serve their country.

    OTOH, possibly the GRU will provide him with an extended free tour of Siberia. Surely the "policewomen" will get one.

    TV Thread

    For my part, if I wanted to get hit over the head repeatedly, I would stand under a very tall waterfall or play football again. I felt the same way about The West Wing and never watched it either. Some real world pains probably do not really merit fictional repetition. At least not for me.

    Too early to start a 2018 Football thread?

    I (sadly) get the Big 10 network as part of my package. They continually show past football games. For the past couple of years I have scanned the provided football games and I have noticed a notable absence: The Rose Bowl. The B10 network just has never seen a reason to replay this game. Or else I've missed it when offered. added: I suppose it could be a contract thing, but certainly they've rerun lots of bowl games.

    In a little more political humor, Paul Ryan reports that woodchucks ate up his car. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/jul/13/paul-ryan-woodchucks-eat-car He took care of the situation by making them homeless. Right up there with Carter's killer rabbit!
