Has anyone started talking about zones of differing activity? Like the green, yellow or red zones of other large actions?

I am starting to feel concerned by all the talk I am hearing about lack of adherence to or acceptance of diversity of tactics. Frankly, the cops will do what they are going to do, we do not need to be pointing out people doing something we may not agree with.

I don’t know if this is the place for this dialogue, probably not, but I just want to put it out there that disagreement is okay but helping to get someone arrested is NOT.

If you see activity you disagree with please just move away. Please do not put our fellow agitators in harms way by pointing them out.

Radley Balko takes Bill Clinton to task for his cynical exploitation of the Oklahoma City bombing and his revisionist whitewashing of what his people did in Waco. I mentioned a few of the same things last Friday, in a response to an early Balko article.

I’ve been cooking Richard Nikoley’s comfort food, a stew with cabbage and sausage since I first saw his recipe. It’s a favorite at our household. This time, my wife did the cooking. The results were great. Here is her recipe:

    • 1 pork/venison smoked sausage link (any kind of sausage meat will work), U shaped, cut diagonally into1″ long and 1/4″ thick wedges
  • 1 head of green cabbage, diced into 1″ to 2″ pieces
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced to 1/2″ pieces
  • 5 fresh medium sized tomatoes, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1 Calabaza Squash, cut into 1″ triangle shaped cubes
  • 2 cups of water
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/3 of a piece of fresh 2″ long ginger, minced
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Herbs de Provence
  • 1/4 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/4 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp ground curry
  • About 10 fresh Rosemary leaves, pinched into tiny pieces
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Put the coconut oil and olive oil into the dutch oven on the stove. Turn stove to low-medium heat. Add the spices/ herbs (minus the rosemary leaves, pepper and salt) and marry them for a couple minutes, stirring frequently so they don’t burn. Add all the cut up veggies, meat, rosemary, salt, pepper and water. Increase heat to medium high and bring to a boil, reduce heat to simmer and put lid on and cook for about 20 minutes or so. You want the cabbage to have a little crunch to it. I measured out the Herbs de Provence but all the other spice amounts I used in this recipe are approximate, as I didn’t measure them. So you can adjust according to your own liking. You can even add more fresh ginger or add in Tabasco sauce if you want it hotter.

*The Calabaza squash is a Mexican/South American/Carribean squash that is similar to Zucchini Squash in size and color but has a lighter fresher taste to it. You can usually find it in the store right next to the Zucchini. Get the ones that are green and are about 6 – 8 inches long and as big around as an average zucchini. Some stores sell them when they get really big around like a cantaloupe, but don’t use that size. It is sometimes also called Calabash. If you can’t find it, you can use any kind of squash you want. : )

From e-mail:

  • I saw a coyote chasing a rabbit and they were both walking.
  • The corn growing in the field is already popped.
  • Farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying hard-boiled eggs.
  • A sad West River cowboy once prayed, “I wish it would rain – not so much for me cuz I’ve seen it-but for my 7-year-old.”
  • You can make instant sun tea.
  • The temperature drops below 95, you feel a bit chilly.
  • Hot water now comes out of both taps.
  • You break a sweat the instant you step outside at 7:30 a.m. before work.
  • You realize that asphalt has a liquid state.
