Casey Jones was famous before the crash of the Cannonball. He used a distinctive train whistle that allowed him to be recognized by those living along the Illinois Central Line between Jackson, Tenn. and Water Valley, Miss.
Nuclear Power Green Deal — The Wall Street Journal on Feb. 26 had a great column by John Rie and Alan Emery titled “The Nuclear Option Is The Real Green Deal”.
It’s behind a paywall so to sum it up:
- Solar and wind are not serious solutions to the problems of global energy demand.
- Nuclear power is a stable, profit-generating 24/7 carbon-free energy source that uses the existing power grid and fully proven technology.
- Almost all the deaths involving nuclear power come from the 1986 Chernobyl accident. The Three Mile Island incident caused neither deaths nor an increase in cancer, and the 2011 Fukushima incident caused neither death or disease from exposure to radiation. (Side note: Chernobyl was designed by socialists.)
- Most significantly, a nuclear plant produces as much toxic waste in a year that a coal plant produces in an hour.
Rie and Emery also describe how South Korean nuclear plants are extremely profitable as they have all been built from an identical design.
We despise global warming fanatics but minimizing carbon emissions is obviously a desirable thing.
And really, are global warming fanatics worse than no-nuke ones?
Here’s an irony: If the AGW-gonna-kill-us-all-in-12-years crowd is right, Jane Fonda will literally be responsible for destroying the world.

China’s Three Gorges Dam is usually considered the world’s most powerful hydro-plant with a capacity of producing 22.500 MW (megawatts or 1 million watts per hour), but world record holder for making water-power is the Itaipu Dam which is jointly run by Brazil and Paraguay. It has produced 103.1 TW (terawatts or 1 trillion watts) in the course of a year. Three Gorges has only managed 98.8 TW.

Joseph Zullo easily beat Democrat Josh Balter in the 99th District State House seat replacing Rep. James Albis who moved into a spot as a senior advisor with the state’s Department of Energy and Environmental Protection

The Pied Piper story is likely based in fact. Apparently 130 children really did vanish on a June day in 1284 from the German village of Hamelin. Professor Jurgen Udolph thinks they ended up near the Baltic Sea as part of a government colonization plan.

Bacon Red Beans And Rice Recipe — An inexpensive and easy riff on the classic Cajun dish of red beans and rice is to do the makin with bacon.
Heat up a large sauce pan and dice an onion, large bell pepper and a stalk of celery. Then dice about five strips of supermarket bacon.
Render the bacon in the sauce pan and sauté the veggies in the fat. If there is not enough fat add some butter or oil.
Add the seasoning. Remember, the one who adds the rice picks the spice. Garlic powder, salt and pepper is a safe choice. Don’t forget the bacon has a lot of salt.
Stir and add two cans of beans without draining them. What kind? Small red, kidney, pink, mix them up, you’re the chef.
Give the cans a scrape, fill them with water and add that.
There should be enough liquid to cover everything. If not add more water. Bring to a boil, lower to a simmer, and let it go for an hour or two.
About 20 minutes before mealtime, rinse the rice. How much rice? It’s decision time. Do you want the dish to be smooth like Popeyes? Run it through a food process or — much, much easier — use a hand-blender to cream it in the pot. Then cook as much rice as you want separately.
If not, estimate how much liquid is left, bring it back to a boil and add an appropriate amount of rice at the ratio of one part rice to two parts liquid.
Cook until the rice is soft and liquid absorbed then ladle out.
