More exciting than hearing Troy University public radios Dick Estell read Fifty Shades of Grey, its Monday Mail.
Great balls of fire
The astronomy news service Spaceweather.com reports the Taurid meteor shower is at its peak, and though it's not a high-volume sky show, it can be dazzling: "Because the debris stream is not very congested, Taurid meteor rates are low, no more than five per hour. The special thing about Taurids is that they tend to be fireballs."
Gates of razor wire
Election Day's over, Veterans Day has passed and Thanksgiving's yet to come, so that means it's time for the annual SOA Watch protest at the Fort Benning Road entrance to Fort Benning, which will be closed this weekend.
The post says that gate will close 6 p.m. Friday and reopen 5 a.m. Monday. The National Infantry Museum will be open, but visitors should get to it via South Lumpkin Road.
Of course all our government installation security measures could change, should the Obama Apocalypse foretold by right-wing hysteria come to pass, now that the president has been re-elected.
Call it the "Obamaclypse." That's an easier way to describe what the paranoid say will be a total economic collapse resulting in a communist takeover -- unless the world ends Dec. 21, as foretold by the Mayans, in which case we needn't worry.
Speaking of paranoid fantasies, here's a comment "ItsBummerStoopid" posted to a Nov. 4 column that mentioned Glenn Beck's reporting the late U.S. ambassador to Libya was running guns to Islamic terrorists:
Finally, a left leaning news man has brought up Bengahzi. Thanks Timster for bringing the conspiracy to light. With blood on bummer's hands, an indictment can't be far behind.
With the untarnished credibility Obama-haters established during the presidential campaign, making that accusation stick should be easy.
Here's an email from "Nateye" regarding precinct tallies in Georgia's 2nd Congressional District, where Sanford Bishop faced John House:
You might want to check with the election folks about the validity of the posting of results concerning Epworth results regarding the House/Bishop race. That particular choice was not on the Epworth ballots.
It just seemed that way because the race was on so few ballots at Epworth, which has 4,465 registered voters total, but only 264 in the 2nd District.
