Rain and fog this morning along California’s northern coast and we’re expected to get hammered by a cold front in a little while that will bring possible thunderstorms and a snow level down to about 1,500 feet.
A dust of white on the mountains can be easily seen from the beach — winter’s here.
Actually, winter doesn’t start until Friday, but wait, that’s the end….
Funny how crazed the world, so fixated on a loosely-pronged Mayan Long Count calendar, which in the parlance of addressing the stupid, doesn’t mean what you think it does: A Reuters survey this year found that one in seven people believe the world will end during their lifetime, if not next week. In the U.S., NASA has dedicated a part of its website to debunk myths about the world’s end. The Russian government has reassured the nation that life will continue, as has the Vatican to Catholics.

Reassurance for people scared of life.
One needs to worry about real shit, like climate change, or freakin’ guns.
John Cole at Balloon Juice was right, gun nuts are ‘pussies’ and are afraid of the dark, and for very-once, scared of the Sunday talk shows:
â€œWe reached out to all 31 pro-gun-rights senators in the new Congress to invite them on the program to share their views on the subject this morning,” he (David Gregory at NBC ‘Meet the Press’) said.
“We had no takers.â€
The same at CBS ‘Face the Nation‘ and the ABC ‘This Week with George Stephanopoulos‘ — the only dumb-shit to appear was Texas Republican Louie Gohmert, who blubbered on Fox News Sunday (of course!): â€œI wish to God she had an M4 in her office, locked up, so when she heard gunfire, she pulls it out … and takes him out and takes his head off before he can kill those precious kids.â€
He was talking about about Sandy Hook Principal Dawn Hochsprung, who was killed in the massacre.
Gohmert is such a fucking asshole turd.
