Age Old Question

State governments everywhere are experimenting with novel solutions when facing Austerity Measures. Here, the Nevada Governor's Mansion shows off the new Mascot / Greeter / and Minister Plenipotentiary.

I thought I was secumb to guess Sandoval is hindlicking™ a stuffed bear.

Isn't hindlicking what you do to choking people?

Welcum back D.

"welcome back" ?
I've been here all along, testing the death ray, looking for work, skulking about the library, etc.

But thanks for the thought.

Califargnia, folks.

Interesting note, Red Mountain (where I think this shot was taken), Johannesburg, Randsville and Atolia are all clustered together along Hwy 395 in eastern CA.

Guess which one changed its name in the late '70's?


It used to be Ayatola.

Apparently, being associated with vicious racial segregation is A-OK for one town, but being remotely associated with a Muslim cleric is just too much for another.

How does Lavi knoa the segregation was vicious? I do not doubt it was but with the tables turned are things any better?



how many wrongs make a right?

There are now some rather...ummm..disturbing web sites documenting rape and murder of white farmers in South Africa.

True? Probably. Exploitive and inflammatory Definitely.

Now...Ayatolla....not of Rock and Rolla. Hey, I remember then! Iran has a revolution and overthrows the USA (CIA) backed fascist decades long dictator and the revolution is manned by youth and the religiously oppressed.

Because a sitting president and the USA looks bad (remember that tragically failed helicopter rescue that ended in a lot of dead Americans?...Operation Eagle Claw) to rescue hostages held in the US Iranian embassy, it became very popular to FEAR and LOATHE..should I add HATE? Iranians.

How could I forget? I spent an extra 70 days in the Indian Ocean on an aircraft carrier just prior to that.

Every now and then when your life gets complicated and the weasels start closing in, the only cure is to load up on heinous chemicals and then drive like a bastard from Hollywood to Las Vegas ... with the music at top volume and at least a pint of ether.

-Hunter S. Thompson

Dedicated to the other side of Las Vegas, namely; the sprawling, mad, incoherent underpinnings of the world's favorite destination.

That, and the occasional ranting about nothing in particular.
