I’m going to reserve judgment.

I’m not going to call this the lunatic bill of the 2015 session. Not yet. There’s a lot I don’t understand about this, I’m sure. But it sounds like a Daryl Dixon and Sarah Palin blind date. (Unless you buy into the whole thing about Daryl maybe being gay.)

It does raise a bunch of questions, starting with: what predators are we talking about? We don’t — officially speaking — have mountain lions or wolves. Except in North Stonington. Black bears? You’re going to drop your bow and bust off a cap in a black bear? Zombies? Is this about zombies?

Anyway, I always thought the whole idea of bowhunting was to even the playing field, a little.

From fascinating NYT story on defeating the psychology and branding of ISIS:

“I want to engage in a long-term conversation to understand a commonly held view of the psychological, emotional and cultural power of I.S. in terms of a diversity of audiences,” the general said. “They are drawing people to them in droves. There are I.S. T-shirts and mugs.”

Close to home, an “emotional support pig” was booted off a plane at Bradley. 

No word yet on whether it was actually Patricia Marx whose article on support animals hilariously debunked the whole idea earlier this year.

But which is worse, a pig or a Mile High Club practitioner of self-love (on a Virgin flight, no less)? This man obviously misunderstood “Snakes on a Plane.”
