uh-oh, we’ve reached the “integrity advisory panel” stage
the print version had pictures of the bureaucrats’ pasty faces & vacant eyes, hardly-human cogs in a diabolical machine

wonderful book — like a drink of cool water
Scruton sees polity through the lens of family, extended family, and extended extended extended family, as any sane person would
Wondering how a progressive could possibly resist Scruton’s message, I googled for progressive reviews: “written in a foreign language”

The towering pyrocumulus cloud above the King Fire is hard to miss from the Sacramento area and even the San Joaquin Valley.
During its peak height Wednesday, the cloud tops could even be seen as far as Palo Alto, nearly 140 miles away.
These clouds form from intense surface heating from wildfires or even volcanic eruptions. The heat rises, cools and expands. In wildfires, strong upward currents carry ash, smoke and water vapor upwards. The ash and smoke act as condensation nuclei for the water vapor, and the cloud begins to grow.
Pyrocumulus clouds can produce rain and extinguish the fire that created them. If the cloud grows too large though and becomes a pyrocumulonimbus, it can produce lightning and that could spark more fires.

No one’s been hurt, no homes have been destroyed, so we’re all enjoying this with a clear conscience from the front porch swing

“Implicit in the activist conception of government is the assumption that you can take the good things in a complex system for granted, and just improve the things that are not so good. What is lacking in this conception is any sense that a society, an institution, or even a single human being, is an intricate system of fragile inter-relationships, whose complexities are little understood and easily destabilized.” Thomas Sowell (via philosophicalconservatism)
