Which is a big reason why gambling should be legal. Cop’s lives should not be on the line to enforce some people’s christian morality on others. But no one thought it ironic or even questionable that someone gets killed trying to stop people from peacefully playing cards or pulling a slot. An example of the big government Right. The cop’s death (had it been real) is resistance to tyranny, not a crime, and was not worth it.

Dragent shows are real stories, and I don’t appreciate you excusing cop killers and posting bizarre statements on my thread.

Hey, Vision! No news, which is good news, I guess.

It’s gorgeous today, but I’ve been sleepy all day from staying up too late and the time change. I had to get up early and haven’t been able to shake the “sleepies” all day! Maybe I’ll have a beer/s in a little while. That might help. :-)

How YOU doin’?

Cocktail time!

I also stayed up too late last night. Nothing major happening other than work drama. Today didn’t seem to get as warm as expected, which stopped me from having an afternoon cigar outside.

But nothing all that new to report.

Sorry for his family. I still blame the stupid law and the tyranny of those who passed it.

I hope it wasn’t a bad hassle at your work. Work can be a big hassle in the most unexpected ways.

Thanks. I expect to be able to discuss it in more detail next week.

Of course, it’s only natural to break up a card game with guns drawn! Nothing stupid or tyrannical about that. Who would possibly resist or shoot back when armed thugs burst in on a group of people enjoying themselves? The 2nd Amendment was just for hunters, you know.

No reason at all to think while listening to propaganda.

Why won’t you have a martini? How do you make yours, gin or vodka with a glass swirl of vermouth?

I don't like to drink on work nights.

Now you're in for it: Gin only.

If I have my favorite, Plymouth gin I'll chill a glass, pour 4oz into a shaker with ice, stir for a minute or two (do not shake), then pour. Usually no garnish with Plymouth.

Otherwise I like Bombay white label, I'll drop a few drips of vermouth onto the ice in the shaker which will freeze on the ice. I'll try to pour out any extra vermouth not on the ice. Then proceed as above but may add a twist of lime or lemon.

The martini is perfection.

None on a “school night.” I understand.

Too many of them, and you’ll see double. I found that out many, many years ago when I was young and much dumber than I am now.

I see this Dragnet isn’t some “innocent card game” like our liberal troll imagined. To say that gambling is harmless is to deny reality of many ruined lives left in its wake. While there are plenty of people who can “safely” enjoy an innocent card game, there are many who gamble to disastrous levels. Gambling in and of itself is not a good thing for a number of reasons.

One night in las vegas I lost count of how many I/we had. It was probably like 5. Have no idea how that didn't end in disaster. Can remember walking down las vegas blvd high as a kite and in love with the world and LV.

It's kinda funny that GS always has the same guy playing all the different antagonistic roles. This week he's Ben Pitcher, another episode he's a lone gunman from the range, then he's someone else.

Yep. They have just a few bad guys, and their voices are distinctive. You have the young bad guy with the “smarmy” voice and the older bad guy, Pitcher.

A different Chester?! I didn’t know they had a different one on radio. Was it toward the end of the run or early, do you know?

We can barely stand Father Knows Best. The girl and her "honesty" were like fingernails on a chalkboard.

It must have been near the end. The guy was imitating Chester pretty hard but it was hollow. Maybe it was a one off show.

Good night, Vision. I hope you have a good week.

Oh, we didn’t eat them until after we said good night to you (we eat late like freaks). They were excellent! Perfectly cooked, tender, juicy! I pan sauteed some asparagus in olive oil to go with the steaks.

Great suggestion on how to do the pork butt, Vision! Thanks! :-)
