The vacation is… well.

Nobody’s injured, nobody’s dead. The kids are currently quiet. I’m sure that tomorrow is another day.

…Annnnd the Unknown Armies Third Edition Kickstarter.

THIS one I knew about, starting yesterday. THIS one I knew I wanted, no question. THIS one I logged on to back. Unknown Armies is an amazing game that never generates enough content to satisfy me. I can’t wait to get these books.

A last-minute note: KULT: Divinity Horror RPG Kickstarter’s final hours.

I somehow missed this for the last month: they’re coming out with a new edition of the old-school RPG KULT. You have less than half a day to back it, not that it needs it. Really, I have no idea how I missed this…

Long day, and good night.

Traveling and kid-wrangling and pool time. So… talk among yourselves, I guess. Got a busy few days ahead of me, for given values of ‘busy.’

My RedState piece on academics objecting to speech codes.

Found here. Short version: it’s actually apparently kind of easy to get academics to hate speech codes. All you have to do is gore their own ox.

Gonna be on vacation for a couple of days…

…the kids are old enough now that amusement parks, well, amuse. And it’s Easter Break, so we’re taking a few days off. Posting will not disappear, but I’ll be doing it from a Chromebook which will slow things down. So… everybody else get some fresh air, too? It’s going to be a beautiful couple of spring days, where I am.

‘We Don’t Need Another Hero.’

Seriously: this woman won every genetic lottery there ever was.

My RedState piece on Ted Cruz and Wisconsin.

Found here. Short version: Cruz is focusing in areas where Scott Walker was and is strong, and making a strong play for blue-collar voters.  This is the smart way to do it.

Marco Rubio flashes the Hawaiian good-luck symbol from beyond the political grave.

Basically, he told the Alaska GOP that his delegates were NOT to be released to the other candidates. They remain his until the first ballot. And why is this of benign interest to people? Well

If Rubio had not lodged the request, then Trump and Cruz would have received an equal number of delegates in Alaska. Instead, the state party’s apportionment rules meant that Trump lost three delegates and Cruz lost two, which gave the Texas senator a 13-12 lead among Alaska delegates.

You think Trump wouldn’t have minded the sop of a sudden delegate tie in Alaska to distract people from the horrible week he’s having? Well, it ain’t gonna happen, now.  And it’s no skin off of Ted Cruz’s nose, either.  So, you know, good move there from Marco Rubio.

Moe Lane

PS: Rubio’s also requesting that his name be taken off the California ballot. Every little bit helps.

So, just checking something about Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

I’m on Episode 10 or so of the first season, and I’ve noticed that when I look things up about the characters I get a lot of pages with spoiler warnings. I should not ignore those, right? I mean, I vaguely heard that some stuff went down, so I should assume that it was some pretty heavy stuff, right?

Florida Man representing Corey Lewandowski is… Florida Man.

I’m with the Asian woman behind Corey Lewandowski (who has been arrested for misdemeanor battery). Like her, I can’t help but feel that this isn’t what I ordered, either. I was promised something different than this, dammit.

What’s that? It’s not quite Florida Man territory yet? …Well, the lawyer (Kendall Coffey) in question was an US Attorney at the time who then went on to be one of the lawyers in Bush v. Gore. For the Democrats.

Yeah. Now it’s Florida Man.

Tweet of the Day, Add The Skull Of Thrones To The BadThought Pile edition.

Guess who didn’t react well to Gov. Scott Walker (sky-high approval ratings among Republicans in Wisconsin) endorsing Ted Cruz?

I suppose it must be wearying, waking up every morning and wondering, What accomplishment or inspirational figure must I learn to hate today?  Then again, nobody told these people to walk down that road. In fact, there was a lot of yelling and waving-off going on at the time…
