Confounding the calumniators and apostates

The 49ers have one involuntary event before training camp – a minicamp from June 17-19. Will Davis attend the mandatory camp? He offered an answer that was expertly vague. “I might be there,” he said, smiling. “I might not. It’s mandatory. I probably should be there. We’ll see.”
Well darn it, I overlooked the 2012 passing of James Moseley, the man behind Saucer Smear, and the author of at least one major UFO prank.

If the first element of the compound ends in a tricky cluster and the second element also starts with another, you might get a monster like slechtstschrijvend, with nine consecutive consonants, representing seven consonant sounds. Admittedly, this is the kind of barely-a-word mostly used to flummox foreigners (it means "the worst writing"). But as such, it is best-in-class.
Obama, haunted by war and skeptical of heroics, echoes Eisenhower's foreign policy.
As is commonly agreed upon among the be-pantsed social orders, all of us find cash that we left in our other pants- or purse, shirt pocket or jacket, as the case may be. Let us say with speculative guess authority that the average person has $15 tucked accidentally somewhere in the crease of the fold of something that they were sure was just here but is, in fact, there. In America alone, that adds up to 4.5 Billion dollars, worldwide, let's say on the order of $45 Billion.

One of my favorite books is a treasured 1996 reprint of Kevin Brownlow's 1968 history of the silent movie era, The Parade's Gone By... Written when Brownlow was in his 20s, it is nevertheless of the highest quality, full of crisp, luminous black & white photos and interviews with some of the biggest stars of the era, from Gloria Swanson to Buster Keaton. These people were still around in the 60s, and Brownlow tracked them down and got them to talk. I was going to say it the book is a neglected masterpiece, but actually it's still in print, and in-stock at Amazon, so there you go.

Have a look at this chart. Was the problem:
I did not even know there was an International Ammunition Association.

Texas asks a lot of questions, has a worrisome level of interest in crystal meth, and probably a sore that should be looked at by doctor...
I haven't forgotten either. I did an abstract painting related to her story, a girl like so many other intelligent and morally committed young people in the Northwest, and how a small place in a pointless cycle of willful injury and suffering swallowed her up under the treads of a bulldozer. Sure she was radical. Sure she endangered herself, like an unarmed man stands in front of a column of government tanks in Tienanmen square. The campaign to discredit her was and is morally revolting. Everyone I've met who knew her loved her and admired her.

Great to know our national monuments can only be repaired with the generous assistance of billionaires. Remember who's running the country, people.

Browns owner Jimmy Haslam was walking through the streets of Cleveland when a homeless man recognized him, looked up, and said, “Draft Manziel.”

We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried. Most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad Gita; Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty and, to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form and says, 'Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.' I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.

I can’t stress this enough: You’re not supposed to shoot this many long 2s and still have good percentages. For every other player in every other league in the entire world, the long 2-pointer is the worst shot in basketball. But it’s not if you’re Dirk Nowitzki. He was the second best in the league at shooting from 10-23 feet last season, but the even more amazing part is in the “attempts” column — he took nearly 10 a game. Well more than half his shots were long 2s. Unlike the rest of the planet, Nowitzki is so uncannily accurate that he can dominate games this way.
