A Break in the Action

***Climate change fanatics rebuffed again: No warming for 18 years, 5 months!

Since December 1996 there has been no global warming at all (Fig. 1). This month’s RSS temperature – still unaffected by the most persistent el NiƱo conditions of the current weak cycle – shows a new record length for the Pause: 18 years 5 months.



Never forget that this has never been about the environment. It's about money, control, and power.

***NFL finds that the Patriots "probably" deflated the footballs. Well, kinda late now...

An NFL investigation released Wednesday said that New England Patriots employees likely deflated footballs used in the AFC Championship and that quarterback Tom Brady was probably "at least generally aware" of the rules violations.

The Patriots' Super Bowl win will always have an asterisk after it in most people's minds.

***New Poll: Walker leads GOP field, Jeb Bush a distant second.

Good. I'm all for Walker, and I think a Walker/Fiorina or Walker/Carson ticket would be hard to beat.

***Congress passes first budget in six years - because Republicans are in control now and are actually doing their constitutional duty.


***Florida woman uses online pizza order to call for help in hostage situation. Wow.

A Florida woman who claimed her boyfriend was holding her and her children hostage sent a secret message asking for help in an online pizza order.
Highlands County investigators told WFLA-TV a Pizza Hut in Avon Park received an online order for pizza Monday afternoon from Cheryl Treadway. Treadway asked for employees to call 911 in the comments section of the order form. The employees alerted police.
When deputies arrived at the home, Treadway opened the door and told police that her boyfriend, Ethan Nickerson, had a knife. Deputies escorted Treadway and a child to safety and Highlands County Sheriff’s Lt. Curtis Ludden said Nickerson was arrested.

Solitude

By Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Laugh, and the world laughs with you;
Weep, and you weep alone;
For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth,
But has trouble enough of its own.
Sing, and the hills will answer;
Sigh, it is lost on the air;
The echoes bound to a joyful sound,
But shrink from voicing care.

Rejoice, and men will seek you;
Grieve, and they turn and go;
They want full measure of all your pleasure,
But they do not need your woe.
Be glad, and your friends are many;
Be sad, and you lose them all,
There are none to decline your nectared wine,
But alone you must drink life's gall.

Feast, and your halls are crowded;
Fast, and the world goes by.
Succeed and give, and it helps you live,
But no man can help you die.
There is room in the halls of pleasure
For a large and lordly train,
But one by one we must all file on
Through the narrow aisles of pain.
