On Trawling V. Trolling

@brilliantmistake I know this was from yesterday which is, like, 27 years ago internet time. HOWEVER. As a commercial salmon troller I love this and will heartily shout this over the vhf radio this summer.

On Sarah Palin Book, TV Show, Not Sighted In Correctly

While I can't stand Sarah Palin for all the normal reasons, this whole fake hunter thing really gets under my skin. I really enjoy take downs of her totally absent skills.

Nearly everybody hunts in Alaska. All the liberal people in my extremely liberal (for Alaska) town hunt. It is so not a big deal. Also, anybody who is a meat hunter already has a .300-ish rifle that is suitable for the big 3 (Deer, Moose, Caribou). No gun shop advice needed.

Once we find it, will Antonio Sabato Jr. and Rebecca Gayheart be on the first shuttle?

On The Secret, Dreamy Peach Grove of New York City

Northern California it's anything from olives to stone fruits. I hate going home and seeing the stucco monstrosities sitting where orchards used to grow.

On The Secret, Dreamy Peach Grove of New York City

San Jose has a small orchard that produces an insane array of stone fruit in the middle of several awful housing developments. I found it last time I was home. It felt like an archeological discovery.

On Real America: The Gunmen Among Us

formerly--in Alaska people use handguns to shoot large halibut in the head before hauling them into their boat and for bear protection. I don't have one for the safety reasons you listed but I know plenty who do.

I'm thinking about the accessory possibilities. Get your concealed weapon fanny pack here. http://mygunpurses.com/default.aspx?gclid=CISoxo_ki6ACFQTAsgodZVM3eQ

On The End of the 00s: The Decade In "Netflix Instant Watch," by Alex Pareene

This movie is so great. Sinister George Wendt is terrific.

Also, angst-y saxophone playing by the DQ is my very favorite.
