Still thinking about that elderly Brit who shot a local bureaucrat who’d come to have the old guy’s “illegal” cottage torn down, when I saw this cheery little snippet from Toronto:
A man spent his own money on building some stairs so elderly people could climb up this steep path. However, he fell foul of officials who tore them down.
Note the price difference:
I’d say more, but I first have to wait for the Red Curtain Of Blood (RCOB) to subside in my eyes. In the meantime, some kind soul should put a pot of tar on to boil and gather the feathers… I’ll oil the rope

keep it clean have at it.
Ranked in order of foulness / inconvenience:
- inside your mistress’s apartment when you have to get home quickly to take your daughter to her school ballet performance
- down your kitchen sink when the garbage disposal is running
- when it’s 1am and you’re inside a parking garage in downtown Johannesburg
- down a public toilet in Mumbai, India

Looks like today (September 20) is going to be the last day of summer, temperature-wise (91°F) here in north Texas. Unless the weather folks have cocked it up completely, temps are dropping into the 70s over the weekend (with autumn showers coming in), and it seems unlikely that the mercury will climb much over 80°F even after the showers have gone.
Yes, British- and Euro Readers: a daytime high temperature in the high 70s and low 80s (22-27 in your stupid Celsius thing) is what passes for autumn Over Here. You may now eat your livers.
At least we’ll henceforth be spared the stench of lizards frying on the sidewalks. Until next May, that is.
I am SO glad summer has passed. Even by our standards, it was a monster.

First we were a “basket of deplorables” (Hillary Bitch Clinton), and now we’re the “dregs of society” (Joe Fondler Biden).
I wish they’d make up their minds.
To us, of course, they are (and always will be) “Communist motherfuckers”.
