    'This is how I'm going to die': Officers tell Jan. 6 stories

    Watching this was one of my favorite moments of seeing the sedition, in all its violence, covered on January 6. As I watched, I did not believe that the policeman would get out alive and I couldn't imagine what kind of people would do such a thing to another human being.

    They Waited, They Worried, They Stalled. This Week, They Got the Shot.

    The Conservative Republican Governor of Alabama Kay Ivey shocked many people with her outspoken criticism of people who refuse to get vaccinated. She has blamed them for all of the current problems the United States is having with its new cases of covid-19. "Alabama Republican Gov. Kay Ivey on...

    If you are following this thread, you obviously want to keep abreast of the national weather. I saw this article today. "After another punishing weekend of sweltering temperatures across much of the United States, a heat dome will produce highs above average this week for large swaths of the...

    They Waited, They Worried, They Stalled. This Week, They Got the Shot.

    I thought George W. Bush was dumb as a rock and, unfortunately, surrounded himself with his father's warmongering friends. I have to admit to being seduced by his actions post-presesidency, though. His interactions with Michele Obama have been very sweet. I may be wrong, because how can one tell...

    They Waited, They Worried, They Stalled. This Week, They Got the Shot.

    President Biden failed to meet his (ambitious) goal of getting 70% of the American people vaccinated against covid-19 by July 4, but a surge of interest in the vaccine this week is bringing the country closer to that 70%. "On a single day this past week, more than half a million people across...

    Why do men in pictures of Africa wear Safari hats? I assume to keep direct sun off their heads and maybe to retain sweat? Someone who knows can tell me. Is it the same reason Texans wear Ten Gallon Hats?

    In vetoing Jordan and Banks, Pelosi safeguards history, democracy and Capitol attack probe

    I did not think she would do it. I am delighted she did. I am shocked that Liz Cheney backed her up. Both women have backbone. That is becoming a very rare commodity in Washington. Thank you for opening up this topic for discussion, @Rogue Valley.

    After seeing these headlines when I first woke up, I find your comment startling. This was on the front page of "The New York Times" in the place for the story of second most importance. "...at a time when climate change is causing wildfires to be larger and more intense, it’s also one of the...

    Was firefighting your profession? When it comes to forest fires, about which I, blessedly, know nothing, I imagine that there must be community members who volunteer as well as professionals.

    I never even heard the term "swamp cooler" before; I certainly had no idea how one worked. Now i have only the knowledge gleaned here from the list of material used in in making one and the information that sand and scorpions are found when one cleans them out!
