On 9-11 these same Palestinians celebrated. If they all fell over dead today, every last one of them, the world would be a better place.
There was a huge brawl out at the lake this Saturday afternoon. There's a fairly remote little park out there with a swimming beach. I was listening to the scanner when the dispatcher sent Deputies. "two groups of women, some 15 in all, fighting. It is physical." Don't hear that too often.
What I heard in town today was that some of our new residents from the "P.J.'s " were out there, one old hag objected to the bathing suits some of the local women were wearing. She got physical, and it turned into a dust off between the "you can't wear that , where's your burka swim suit"crowd, and local people. That's just scuttlebutt, but it sounds about right given our situation here. I'll bet you a dollar to a donut there's not word one in the paper about it. Can't have that, can we?
I'm going back to town tomorrow and I will stop by a shop I know, owned by a couple who usually have a good handle on what's going on around here. One reason I think there's some validity to the story is that no men were involved. If it had been American women on both sides, their husbands and boyfriends would have been in there pretty quick. Another reason is that I know the event happened, it's not made up, because I heard the police transmissions. But I don't know for sure what really happened. Not yet, anyway.
It's hotter than hell here. 90+ in the mountains, Atlanta must be horrible. All the stink and smog from Atlanta has blown up here, they have air quality alerts and we get the tail end of it.
The Firearms News Annual #18 , (2018 ) is out. I've got them all, from the first issue to this one. I told my wife when I die the kids will probably throw all that away, and she said absolutely not, they will sell them on E-bay. Building a pyramid and being buried in it with all my stuff is sounding better and better.

A new book:
Although this South African reporter covered a lot of the brutal events in Africa during the 1960's and 1970's, his chapter on Lebanon in 1982 was the most evocative for me. The book is hard to find, but there are still copies to be had out there. I think I might put the Lebanon chapter in this blog as an extract. I'm not sure if I'd run afoul of copyright laws, and I can't get in touch with the man to ask him. Maybe he's dead by now.
That's about all there is to tell.
