You have to wonder which guy was stupider.

Sorry, which was more of the idiot savant, specializing in Idiocy (an especially pernicious presentation of savantism).

FORESTBURGH, N.Y. — A Greenwich man is recovering from shotgun wounds sustained in a hunting mishap Friday in southern New York.

Henry Gasiorowski, 60, was seated behind a turkey decoy, making turkey calls, about 7:50 a.m. when his hunting companion, Jerome Day, 47, also of Greenwich, snuck up on the decoy and mistakenly opened fire on it, according to the Sullivan County (N.Y.) Sheriff’s office. The shotgun pellets hit Gasiorowski in the arm and back.

It could be that the idiocy is systemic in that area… flu fears are rampant.

Regarding the supreme court nomination…

Rush had this to say:

I would hope that a wise white man with the richness of his experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a minority woman who hasn’t lived that life.

Wow!  The racist sexist pig!

He said NO SUCH THING.

No, actually what was said by the judge/supreme-court-nominee Sonia Sotomayor herself was:

“I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life,” said Judge Sotomayor, who is now considered to be near the top of President Obama’s list of potential Supreme Court nominees.

Of course, she’ll get a free pass for uttering the very thing that Rush would be crucifed for.

(Sigh)  Disincorporating a town really just hides the cost.  The money still has to come from somewhere, and it’s a LOT less efficient to do it through the Fed.  But hey, the New American Way is to pass the buck as long as required to put it out of sight and out of mind.

Supporting my claim that baby animals taste better.  ‘Specially seals.

So THIS is why Red Bull is so damned addictive.  Glad I quit.  🙂

I would mock the shooters, but until I’ve fired one… Looks like a helluva bang.

The .577 Tyrannosaur is a proprietary cartridge developed by A-Square in 1993. It is an entirely new design, not based on any previous cartridge for the hunting of large game in Africa. The .577 contains a 750-grain (49,000 mg) Monolithic Solid Projectile which when fired moves at 2,460 ft/s (750 m/s) producing 10,180 foot-pounds force (13,800 J) of energy. For comparison the .223 Remington/Nato 5.56mm round used in weapons such as the M16 rifle, when using a 77-grain (5,000 mg) projectile, moves at 2,750 ft/s (840 m/s) producing 1,293 foot-pounds force (1,753 J).  (Source:  http://www.bookrags.com/wiki/.577_Tyrannosaur)
