The Lounge Seeing through the walls of your home Jan 26 2015

I would be unsurprised to learn that this little hand-held device that requires proximity is so last decade. Every time a helo flies over my house, I automatically assume they're looking through my walls.

It used to bother me, but now I just wave and stick out my tongue.

Hello Schloss Chat. Everybody staying ahead of the weather up there?

I haven't been experiencing outrage fatigue. I've been sick of the sound of my own voice.

DOJ has not, apparently, found grounds to prosecute Wilson.

Not surprised. The broader investigation might do some good, though. We'll see.

Pav, honey, no judgment here. Not that I would figure you'd think that, but I realize I went silent after I asked.

I seem to be doing that a lot lately.

Nah.  Even if you were being all Judgey McJudgernaut, I would get it.  I actually wish I was totally comfortable with the CDC schedule but I just can't get there.  I've read both sides of the issue and land somewhere in the middle, so in the middle I stay.

Elder got the pox, before the vaccine. Younger got the shot, by school board rules.

I will say the skinny little curly-headed kid staring out at me from hollow eyes because he didn't feel good, just crushed me. I think that was probably the worst childhood ba-sease he got though.

We live in a country where legislators, actual legislators, decided to say Freedom Fries, instead of French Fries. I think we passed 'buzz word' somewhere back in '06.

How surprised are you, really? ;)

EMHO killed chat? Or is everybody busy?

It took me a few minutes to figure out what that meant. I make no apologies.

Guilty, as charged. I've lately come to the realization that I don't have the chops to be hard.

You just want extra room to store your playthings.

Well, Charlie is putting the prophet on the cover holding a 'Je suis Charlie' sign, but under the banner "All is Forgiven".

I guess I can respect the editorial decision to depict Muhammad, after people lost their lives over it. But what I really dig is the Malala in the message.

I don't know why it struck me, Shep, but it did. I suspect it's because of how hard it is to be in a long-term relationship. You change, grow and evolve. Then you do it over and over again.

You'll acknowledge, I'm sure, that accreditation in Canada is different than in the US. We've got a few of decades of privatization, de-regulation and general 'free market' agendas, under our belts now, that have - in my opinion - defecated in our oversight swimming pool.

Modern religious practice of Islam does not include shooting up a cartoonist office, either, Pav. Any more than modern religious practice of Christianity includes executing an abortion doctor, or bombing a clinic.

We had FCC oversight of broadcast journalism, for several decades, but the Fairness Doctrine - which required broadcast journalism report things fairly - was abandoned in the 80s and fully abolished in 2000s. To be honest, I'm not certain if one can still file a complaint at the FCC for lying on air, or if the remedy is civil courts.

We do fine the **** out of you for a wardrobe malfunction though. So we're safe from nipples.

Maybe a return to something like the Fairness Doctrine, that would define 'news outlet' for new media, would help at least sort the sources. You wouldn't be chilling speech, but you would be defining 'news'. Dunno, but accreditation is too easy to buy, so I can't see that working.

Allergy Remedies
Is It Possible to Go Natural?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
