June 1 brain dump

  1. Wow, I hadn’t heard about the sinkhole. WTF?!?!
    LOL. That was my reaction, too. I suppose it was dug out by water swirling into a storm drain or something, like the little whirlpool when you drain a tub.

  2. So many topics!
    1. I’m not buying the sinkhole either. Looks fake to me.
    2. Imagine if Iran attacked a ship in international waters… what’s wrong with weapons in international waters? This one is too bizarre to be fake.
    3, Obama in Louisiana… Here’s a place where “Hope & Change” might actually have meaning. Just don’t bet the farm on it.
    4. Turns out Tipper is smarter than I thought.
    5. Phoebe’s place: Thieving crows remind me of Democrats and Republicans.
    I sometimes do these dumps when I just want to make a few comments about a swirl of issues. Good point about the ships. Short of a declared war, I don’t think anyone has the right to attack another country’s ships in international waters. In this case, the Turks were supposed to be Israeli allies. It was just a crazy thing to do, and worse to lie about it afterward, especially when no weapons shipments were found.

  3. I like to think that Hope fledged early. She was born a day or so before Hoku, wasn’t she? So maybe she took off.
    I’m pretty sure Hope was two days older, despite the mods’ notes. I was watching quite a bit, hoping to see Hoku hatch. I don’t think I’ll ever fully grasp the concept of a live bird hatching out of a TicTac-sized egg.

... and that's my two cents
