Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

The first use of napalm in a bomb wasn't used in the jungles of Vietnam, nor in the bombings of either Dresden or Tokyo - it was used on the soccer fields of Harvard University on July 4, 1942. And it wasn't even an MIT prank... This was a fantastic proposal... The CFL franchise formerly known as the Edmonton Eskimos is now the Edmonton Elks. I was hoping they'd go with the Edmonton Football Team as part of a trend (and yes the plural of "elk" is still "elk" not "elks" - silly Canadians)... The Boston Celtics season was disappointing all the way around. Making it worse is the "what if" scenario of what if Gordon Hayward had decided to stick around. What could this team have accomplished? And yes if Haywood and Jaylen Brown were both still hurt the results would have been the same... The Sad Truth About Traditional Environmentalism. Good question - who is more anti-science an anti-vaxxer or an environmentalist who is anti nuclear power? Yet only the anti-vaxxer gets publicly mocked...
