Mystery! on PBS

I was actually looking for the title sequence of a show I saw once when I was younger. It played brass trumpet classical music, and wound up with a graphic of the Smithsonian Castle, with a red banner that stretched the length of the castle.

During my search, I was reminded of the Mystery! television show on PBS. It also had a pretty good title sequence:

♣ I’m interested to see the ACLU bring a lawsuit against the hospital that refuses to attach a giant, fuzzy tail to the fellow who claims he is really a squirrel.

♥ “New York Style” pizzas also don’t taste as good outside New York City, I’m told. These are a good substitute for Oreos™, by the way.

♦ Not a discussion of the Trump Tax Cut Proposal™, but a pretty good overview of the effects of tax cuts.

Tom Woods, Ron Paul, and Cato

Dr. Woods discusses an attack on Ron Paul by a “libertarian” vice president of the Cato Institute.

Cato’s only real beef with Dr. Paul, in my opinion, is that Paul leans socially conservative. Reason magazine also has this bias against people who hold culturally traditional views. “Mainstream libertarians” tend to have the same bias against family and church that the left-wing progressives do.

Taxation is theft. The IRS employee is a microcosm of a larger problem, natch.

Bill Nye hates children. He is merely reflecting modern society’s prejudice against procreational sex.

Bankers doubt the Trump Tax. It’s not workable; he’ll never get it passed; well, since it got passed it won’t do what he says; well, the economy is improving, sure, but not because of the Trump tax cuts, Trump will never win reelection, well, Trump only won re-election because he lucked out with a good economy, Trump is a four-year lame-duck president, holy cow, is Trump incompetent, Trump was the greatest President of our time, now that he’s retired from public life.

A New Candidate for Shakespearean Authorship

Posted in For Free Trade, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on April 25, 2017 by cavalier973

Amelia Bassano has been put forward as the authoress of Shakespeare’s plays.

The article linked derides the idea, as well as the idea that anyone other than William Shaksper of Stratford-upon-Avon could be the author of the works that bears Shakespeare’s name. I would suspect, though, that we have a greater sample of Ms. Bassano’s actual handwriting (correspondence, handwritten poems, jotted notes on scratch paper) than we do of William Shaksper.

Here is snopes.com on the matter, for what it’s worth.

And here is a dramatic presentation of American author Mark Twain concerning Shakespearean authorship (which I have posted on this blog previously).
