    Guess I’m running a bit late today, thanks, C-S, had a commitment and didn’t have time to get on.

    black ice cap
    ‘The ice pack in Greenland this year is black. Reports Slate’s Eric Holthaus:

    There are several potential explanations for what’s going on here. The most likely is that some combination of increasingly infrequent summer snowstorms, wind-blown dust, microbial activity, and forest fire soot led to this year’s exceptionally dark ice. A more ominous possibility is that what we’re seeing is the start of a cascading feedback loop tied to global warming. [Climate scientist Jason] Box mentions this summer’s mysterious Siberian holes and offshore methane bubbles as evidence that the Arctic can quickly change in unpredictable ways.’

    thanks, Marion, you have to admire the imperturbable moustache that now discovers ISIS so he doesn’t continue his perfect record of being wrong about what we all ought to do, so now he’ll just ask.

    thanks, attaturk, nice that now that he’s president emeritus, Clinton can say truthful stuff.
    The ad keeping me from reading this took a powder when I clicked on comments.

    Hagel reading a nasty speech making it sound like he’d rather be somewhere else doing something else, hearing on funding ISIS. That is what the congress is doing, right?

    The classical stations are wonderful, but that’s about it for me.

    Drive ins were fun with bunches of folks in a pickup truck, and lots of popcorn.
    Oh, yes, lots of ads now, but that’s for running to the bathroom one last time and coming back with munchies, isn’t it?

    At the moment, mine is a sidepocket in my suitcase. Danger! should only be entered by gloved hands.

    More amenable to snakes, if you choose pets to fit the furniture.
    As to talkie ads, I find it satisfying to make them go away. Tho it does limit the time I spend at FDL at the moment.

    Nice, but I’m afraid to even look. They’d insert themselves into my wish list.
