    I have read, however, that those shoulder-fired weapons can’t take down an airplane flying at that altitude.

    Good morning everyone, and I’ve been up for an hour, at least. It is 49º outside (in JULY!) and 66º in my house with all windows closed. Excellent post, YSD. I think we are drowned in the screaming coverage about the looted crash site, sawed fuselages and rotting bodies, which are all important things, but [...]

    eight loss is going to be less with the band than with a gastric bypass. And that it’ll take longer to achieve the weight loss, because with gastric bypass most of the weight loss occurs over the first year, while with a band it takes five to six years.

    From an article in Time . So much slower [...]

    Christie has had lap band surgery. I don’t think he is gulping down any egg-mc-somethings. They’d come right back up if he did, he hasn’t got much stomach to hold them. There are photos on Buzzfeed (as of Nov. 2013) of his loss. But he started at about 350 lbs. so it isn’t going to come [...]

    They put a bunch of wind towers (is that what they’re called?) in a stretch of open fields near Kokomo, IN. There was a HUGE campaign against them, mostly by people who misunderstand them, I think, but they’re going in anyway. It will bring jobs, and the land is largely open farmland. Kokomo was hit [...]

    It is going to be a wonderful trail. I get bored riding the same routes, and this will be new for me, for awhile.

    I rolled over 1,081 bicycle miles yesterday, on my way to my goal of 2000. This cooler weather is great for riding!

    That would be $80,000 in water bills. Cobo Hall, I think.

    Yes. Every time I think of what those ugly people are doing to poor Detroit residents, my blood boils. While the big shots owe $80,00 in back water bills, the poor are cut off if they owe $150 and apparently the “City Manager” (scare quotes intentional) doesn’t see anything wrong with it.

    That probably was more common in our grandparents’ or even our parents’ day. But I dunno, because I’ve been divorced for nearly 25 years and my ex husband wasn’t in any way a sexist. I’m sure there still are husbands who tell their wives how to vote, but they cannot accompany the wife into the [...]

    Good morning. Same weather here, except it has become cloudy in the last hour. It is downright chilly. I suppose I could close my wide-open windows, but hey, it is supposed to be summer, right?

    As a “science guy” you might be interested in this.

    It’s pronounced “de-ray-cho” (I had to look it up). I came across a chart that shows we get maybe one of those a year, other parts of the country can get several.

    We had a derecho come through here about a month ago, fortunately the brunt of it was about 5 miles south of my house, but there were places it looked like a bomb had been dropped. Huge trees either uprooted or snapped off. There is one park where I saw at least 20 trees down, and [...]

    he laws of physics will not apply when they conflict with the press releases.

    Sounds like most of our world these days, not only Fuku.

    Good morning, peeps. Sunny and cool here. Forecast big heavy t-storms didn’t materialize yesterday, except briefly just south of here.

  • I like Kornacki, he’s kinda like an earnest little boy (who always needs to have his hair combed and a new shirt, for heaven’s sake, he wears the same one every week!). I don’t get the impression he’s soaked (yet) in the MSNBC culture, but of course I may be wildly wrong.

  • Michael, did you try to interview any of the hosts you cover in the book? Forgive me if you said so in the book and I missed it. I was wondering if you were able to, or whether you hit a wall in the attempt, or whether you didn’t try?

    I’d love to hear their exact quotes in response to some of the points in the book!

  • Rula did make the point that Hamas does not equal ALL Palestinians. But I saw an item this week that Hayes was put out there to do damage control and didn’t do it very well. “If it bleeds, it leads” didn’t strike me as a good defense.

    But I think there have been at least two longer interviews with Palestinians in the past couple of days, and it seemed pretty obvious that the network was stung by the criticism.

  • That is why the framing of basically every story on MSNBC is in terms of Dems vs. Republicans, rather than deeper, structural questions, which are never on the table for the network.

    I think that is true of our media in general. It is all “horserace” politics that gloss over the deeper questions and then we wonder why the “sheeple” are so poorly informed.

  • She is continuing that, with her latest segment on Paul’s “lie” one night this week.

    I have liked watching Rachel and Chris Hayes and Steve Kornacki, but I have to remind myself of the framing they all do.
