Workout notes

Yes, I “ran” this in 1:04:36; too damned slow. No, I didn’t push hard, and it was windy and damp. Nevertheless, it was 2 minutes slower than I ran about 2 years ago, back when I had much more running under my belt (and ran 24:4x for 5K a couple of weeks later). And nothing really hurt so it wasn’t a complete disaster.

I went to a small statistics gathering a couple of hours later.
Note: running appears to make my shoulder sore.

Weight: two days ago I was at 192 just before lunch (Bradley gym; I like to be 186-187 on that scale).

Politics
Perhaps Mr. Huckabee ought to keep his mouth shut about certain issues. Recently he said:

“…I do think [Pres. Obama] has a different worldview and I think it’s, in part, molded out of a very different experience. Most of us grew up going to Boy Scout meetings and, you know, our communities were filled with Rotary Clubs, not madrassas.”

Does he really want to get into this “guilt by association thing”?

As Trish reported here in December 2007, during the 2008 presidential primaries, it came out that, at age 18, Huckabee’s son David had been fired by the Scouts as a camp counselor after he and another counselor captured a stray dog, hanged him by the neck, slit his throat and stoned him to death.

The elder Huckabee, who was governor of Arkansas at the time, later fired a local prosecutor who had investigated the matter with the aim of filing animal cruelty charges against David Huckabee and the other boy. In the end, other than being fired by the Boy Scouts, the boys were never held accountable for killing the helpless dog.

Since Mike Huckabee has chosen to spend the week smearing the president’s family by criticizing his upbringing and the way it purportedly shaped his worldview, someone should ask him who warped his own son into the kind of person who would commit such a heinous and gruesome act — was it David Huckabee’s bigoted Southern Baptist preacher father, the Boy Scouts of America — or both?

Also, I’d say there may have been more that Rotary Clubs where Mr. Huckabee lived much of his “real American” life.

(outside of Harrison, Arkansas; yes there was an ACLU case about his where the ACLU went to bat for the KKK)

Science
You may have read about the “circadian clock without dna” papers. This was a break through, but it wasn’t the first time this had been studied. It has been studied, but by less modern methods.

Black holes: do at least some come from black strings which collapse and bead them off?

See the universe in 7 minutes. Yes, it is far from static.

From here.
