From Around the Blogroll: Kitchen renovation edition.

All of the plaster and lath have to come down on the exterior wall, by the end of this weekend, because we are having a contractor install anew door and window on Tuesday. Our kitchen, and really our whole house, is a total disaster due to the renovation project. Click to enlarge.

Blogging has been very light this weekend, because my darling bride and I are in a major kitchen renovation project, so I might have a bit less commentary on this week’s From Around the Blogroll.

Robert Stacey Stacy McCain has Meet @BridgetteDunlap, Fordham’s Campus Commissar of ‘Human Rights’. The lovely Dr Dunlap seems to be anything but willing to listen to other people — she forced the College Republicans to withdraw an invitation to An Coulter — and is basically a Sandra Fluke-type liberal, but she is a professor at Fordham University, a Catholic college run by the Jesuits. Dr Dunlap may be an idiot, but the fault lays with the Jesuit administration which hired her in the first place.

Sister Toldjah has one of the most heartwarming stories so far in 2013, Patriotic Asheboro middle school students give injured veteran a gift he’ll never forget.

Kate at The Victory Girls has a photo of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s courageous response to the meteor explosion over his country.

William Teach, whose “If All You Seeseries this week reflects our version of Rule 5 blogging, tells us how the Silver State is going to protect the people.

JD noted on Patterico’s Pontifications that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi thinks it is beneath the dignity of Congress to have their pay cut due to the sequester that they passed into law.

L D Jackson notes Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA), another idiot who doesn’t think we have a spending problem. This is why your Editor is so opposed to higher taxes to close the deficit, because he knows, with Democrats like Nancy Pelosi and Tom Harkin, more tax revenue just means more spending, not doing anything really radical like trying to balance the budget.

William Jacobson on Le*gal In*sur*rec*tion noted that The New York Times doesn’t like Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX). No, they’d much rather have a go-along-to-get-along Republican, rather than one who actually supports the things on which he campaigned for office in the first place.

Donald Douglas noted that, despite the feminists’ outcries, women are increasingly the purchasers of firearms.

Hube discusses one of the best Star Trek: The Next Generation episodes. I thought that the episode was OK, but not one of the top five. And I’d argue that Star Trek: Deep Space 9 was the best of the several Trek series.

Karen noted the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s position that it is illegal discrimination for employers to refuse to hire convicted felons.



  1. Hey, your pingbacks worked this week. I just received the notice in my comment moderation panel. Thanks for the link and you should read the comments on my Harkin article. Bettybb is evidently a full-blown liberal believer in Keynesian economics. You would be shocked at some of the accusations she is making. On second thought, having dealt with some of the commenters on this blog, you probably wouldn’t.

    I feel sorry for you and your darling bride. Your kitchen is a mess.

  3. Y’all would not believe the crap I found in the wall. Someone had taken some three-strand 12 gauge wire, black, red and white, and run it from the circuit beaker panel to a junction box hidden in the kitchen wall. From there, he took one hot (black, circuit breaker #12) to the hot line of one knob-and-tube circuit, one hot (red, circuit beaker #14) to the hot line of a separate knob-and-tube circuit, and used the white as the neutral for both knob and tube circuits!

    Actually, it does work, and in away, it doesn’t matter, since all neutrals connect to the same bus bar in the circuit beaker box, but I’m just baffled as to why anyone would do that.
