the boys of boise

one of today's cartoons reminded me of an actual historic event, generally forgotten.

"With a population of about 45,000 in Boise in the year of 1955, “The Boys of Boise” homosexuality scandal was sure to ignite a significant public reaction and to serve as a piece of Boise history never to be forgotten. However, at the present, the 1955 scandal is a significant piece of our local history that few Boiseans know much about. What really happened in this homosexual sex scandal in 1955? Why is it a piece of Boise’s past that tends to be forgotten?"


garland hearings seem to be going well

i watched geinstein, lindsey graham, and whitehouse. even lindsey seemed reasonable.


17 year cicadas

a large brood of cicadas is scheduled to emerge this spring. i usually use this recipe on our 13 year cicadas but those 17 year bugs are reputed to be bigger and just as tasty. remove the wings and legs (unless you are lucky enough to catch them before they harden.)

Marinate cicadas in Worcestershire sauce at least 1 hours.
Dip into flour, egg then into breadcrumbs.
Deep fry and serve with cocktail sauce

also good broiled or bar b q


my favorite cicada pizza :

cicada jumbalaya :

chocolate covered they are delicious (a valentine treat) and they make a great gumbo

thanks to buzzfeed for the photos


republicans who voted to convict .....

according to ny post .......

"Seven Republicans broke ranks and voted to convict Trump: Richard Burr of North Carolina, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Mitt Romney of Utah, Ben Sasse of Nebraska and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania."

i predict that they will become more regressive than their colleagues in an attempt to regain good standing in their party.

will a new organizing resolution be passed?

or will repubs continue to chair committees and mcconnel can sit on appointments and legislation until 2023?

repeal the patriot act

this bill may have seemed necessary in the wake of 9/11, but so did the war. let us repeal this as well as the authorizations to use force.
