There was some damned rain,

damned because we don't need it right now, but the evening is pleasant.  Damp or dry if you're busy out the data will be here.

Why yes, it does sound exactly like that

“All proposed names are either too generic, or too similar to previous well-known viruses, or contain an Arabic number. This makes it hard to remember or recognize, leading to a tendency among the general population and scientists alike to use a shorthand term such as ‘Wuhan coronavirus’ or ‘Wuhan pneumonia.’ This has, in fact, been the case since it was named 2019-nCoV. This practice would, however, stigmatize and insult the people in Wuhan, who are still suffering from the outbreak.”
Gee, doesn’t that sound like the talking points that came out of every single Democrat and their mouthpieces in the mainstream media around that time? Also, for a virologist to argue that a scientific name should be changed because “it’s too hard for the general population to remember all those numbers” is pretty unheard of.
But for a bunch of virtue-signaling Professional Journalists, not a surprise.  At all.

This is interesting, and would serious upset the PRC

This part is terrifying:
According to Housley, FBI director Christopher Wray “didn’t know right away because they wanted to make sure they got all they needed before telling him.” In fact, Wray was “ambushed” with the information, according to Van Laar’s sources, as was the CIA. “Sources say DIA leadership kept the defector within their Clandestine Services network to prevent Langley and the State Department from accessing the person, whose existence was kept from other agencies because DIA leadership believes there are Chinese spies or sources inside the FBI, CIA, and several other federal agencies,” according to the report.

'Terrifying' because it's probably true.  

And let the gun bigot screeching begin

From an e-mail:

The Second Amendment Foundation has won a significant court ruling in the case of Miller v. Bonta , which challenged the constitutionality of California’s ban on so-called “assault weapons,” with U.S. District Court Judge Roger T. Benitez declaring the state’s statutes regarding such firearms to be unconstitutional.
“In his 94-page ruling, Judge Benitez has shredded California gun control laws regarding modern semi-automatic rifles,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. “It is clear the judge did his homework on this ruling, and we are delighted with the outcome.”

In his opening paragraph, Judge Benitez observes, “Like the Swiss Army Knife, the popular AR-15 rifle is a perfect combination of home defense weapon and homeland defense equipment. Good for both home and battle, the AR-15 is the kind of versatile gun that lies at the intersection of the kinds of firearms protected under District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008) and United States v Miller, 307 U.S. 174 (1939). Yet, the State of California makes it a crime to have an AR- 15 type rifle. Therefore, this Court declares the California statutes to be unconstitutional.”

That's a weasel in the henhouse.

It's downright nice outside, so

if you're out doing something interesting I understand; the data will hold until later.

Midway is about to get some M1 Carbines in

Prices seem to be about average for what you find now, I'm guessing for the lower grade, to pretty high for the upper.

Because it was a nice day and I couldn't not try,

I rode the bike today.  Only about ten miles total, but by the time I got home the hip was telling me to knock it off.

We'll see how it goes in the future.

There need to be trials Added

followed by public hangings for Fauci and everyone else involved in his lies and garbage.

Addition: apparently this caused severe butthurt to someone.  Who, as usual, named himself Anonymous.  Who can go do something physically improbable  to himself.

Google: "We are Evil, and we have a thing

about Jews."

Google's Head of Diversity:
Kamau Bobb, who is also an 'Equity in Computing' don at Georgia Tech, wrote a 2007 blog post, which remains on his website, titled: 'If I Were A Jew.'

Bobb writes: 'If I were a Jew I would be concerned about my insatiable appetite for war and killing in defense of myself. Self defense is undoubtedly an instinct, but I would be afraid of my increasing insensitivity to the suffering of others.'

He evokes the memory of Kristallnacht, a Nazi pogrom against Jews in 1938, and Holocaust victim Anne Frank to question why Israel lacks 'compassion' towards Muslims in Gaza, Lebanon and the West Bank.

Seems that when the head of Google isn't lying under oath to Congress, he hires people like this.  Wonderful, isn't it?

'If the lab-leak hypothesis is true,

expect a political earthquake'
I should damn well hope so.

Of course, the Professional Journalists and bureaucrats and leftists who had fits screaming "RACIST!" will do everything they can to deny any responsibility for the shitstorm they created because 'Trump!', and because they followed the orders of their PRC paymasters(have you seen how much they have invested in lost of our Professional Media?).

Also, it seems that Fauci is coming out with a book.  Which we can be sure will tell us what a far-sighted hero he is for saving us.  Wonder how much payo- ah, how big an advance he'll get?

One of the fun things about this back problem

is this:
I'd been thinking about selling my bike- a sport-touring type- and finding something with a more upright seating position, because this one has started to really bother my legs on long rides.

Now I'm wondering if that, or if it'll be 'Get rid of the bike entirely, because I won't be able to ride worth a damn anymore.'

The physical therapist I've been working with says not to do anything permanent yet, because she thinks I've improved quite a bit and might be in pretty good riding shape by the end(in somewhere between 1 and several more months).    We'll see.

Dammit, I hate it sitting in the garage, not being ridden.
