Weekend Randomosity

There's not a lot going on today, but here's what I've got:

* Alaska's largest telecommunications company (GCI, Anchorage) is purchasing three Alaska TV stations, including the CBS affiliate here. "GCI President Ron Duncan says the intent is to turn the three stations into a statewide news and entertainment leader," says the linked article. That could be interesting.  The local station has suffered ever since its reporters were recorded on an open mic, some years ago, discussing how to sabotage Sarah Palin's run for VP in '08. Seems the folks here didn't care for the collusion, regardless of their own political leanings. Go figure.

* I wonder if we'll ever know the truth about Gen. Petraeus' resignation. You know how Americans love a conspiracy; it's just that the timing is so suspect.

* There have been some spectacular aurora borealis displays a bit farther north. Apparently photographers are flocking to Fairbanks these days, where the temps have been consistently well-below zero lately.

Thanks for stopping by, friends, and have a great weekend!

But since it's the NY Times, can we trust that report? We're talking about the CIA here; they certainly know how to formulate a plausible cover story.

Since we can't or don't trust the sources involved, we may never know what's real & what isn't.

Interesting times, indeed.

That's exactly what my son said yesterday. We can't know the truth of anything coming out of Washington. He won't even watch anymore.
Buy more guns and ammo - that's his motto.
And he's an astrophysicist.
