Not a really important story on Ukraine but the replies to the original post

Are some of the funniest stuff I've ever read and I'm only half way through them:


Interesting Covid chart re risk of death.


The other day Dr. Jha indicated even the unvaccinated who had a prior Covid infection aren't dying anymore. Only the unvaccinated who never had Covid, the elderly who didn't get boosters and the relatively few who are truly immuno-compromised are at risk of dying.

I looked at the covid death statistics for the ongoing ba.2 wave in Boston and nyc today. Ba.2 has been around here since late March. The increase in Covid related deaths has been negligible.

Finally found a reliable twitter source for the Sussman trial.

Looks like the Times and the Post pulled their reporters. Too boring?


Bodies pulled from parched Lake Mead stir Wise Guy Ghosts of Las Vegas

Bodies Pulled From Parched Lake Mead Stir Wise-Guy Ghosts of Las Vegas
As climate change fuels grim discoveries across the West, Las Vegas is awash in bets on the identity of a suspected murder victim dumped in a barrel.

LAS VEGAS — It’s the mob guy who went missing after skimming from the Stardust casino. No, it’s the lake resort manager hunted down by the Chicago Outfit. Could it be the work of a biker gang muscling in on Mafia turf? Or maybe someone just fell off a boat after one too many.

Ever since the bodies started turning up this month in Lake Mead — the first in a barrel, the next half-buried in sand, both exposed by plunging water levels — theories in Las Vegas are flourishing about who they are, how they wound up in the country’s largest man-made reservoir, and what might surface next.

Lynette Melvin found the second body with her sister while paddle boarding. At first they thought they had stumbled onto bones of a bighorn sheep. “It wasn’t until I saw the jawbone with a silver filling that I was like, ‘Whoa, this is human,’ and started to freak out,” Ms. Melvin, 30, said.

The discovery of human remains is always a source of tragedy and potential pain for loved ones — especially when they show signs of a violent end. But in Las Vegas, a town where the seedy underbelly is part of the draw, macabre fascination and amateur sleuthing have quickly followed


The story is about climate change and the Western drought as much as it is about missing mobsters.

A thread from Prof. Phillips on Russian advances near Popasna.

For the armchair generals out there:


Sri Lanka in crisis.

The situation hasn't got a lot of publicity, so I thought I would put something up:


Job opportunities for everyone over 40!

I understand the positions involve foreign travel.


The Daily Patron

Three today



Another medal for Patron. You can hit the tweet and get the Google translation.


Azov defenders in the steel plant: The operation is underway.


There's a very short video down thread. No idea what it all means except that some haven't surrendered.

PS In the past few weeks russian media has claimed that there are 50 French officers in the plant and that the Russians have captured an american and a canadian general in there.
I'm not making this up.

They had the name and video of the American general in cuffs.

Hero of Norway and Ukraine!
