Dwight D. Eisenhower
You are probably aware that Abner Doubleday invented baseball. Did you know, however, that he attended West Point, and as captain of artilliary at Fort Sumter fired the first union shot of the Civil War.

al Qaeda Says Yes We Can — The latest edition of Inspire, al Qaeda’s English langauge magazine, features a graphic of a pistol aimed at the head of Pastor Terry Jones above President Obama’s motto “Yes We Can” with the subtitle “A Bullet A Day Keeps the Infidel Away, Defend Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him”
Jones is the Florida pastor who burned a copy of the Koran a while back.
Next to the image of Jones is an Old West style “wanted poster” with a list of photos and/or names of those being sought “dead or alive for crimes against Islam”. Those listed include author Salman Rushdie, politicians Geert Wilders (whose name they misspelled) and Ayaan Hirsi Ali, and artists Lars Vilks and Molly Norris, the latter whom is an American who has changed her name and been in hiding since 2010 upon advice of the FBI.
And the Democrats want to ban guns for those who want to be left alone.

Ernest Hewettt, Let’s Play Guess The Party — A 17-year-old girl testified before the Appropriations Committee of the Connecticut House on Feb. 20 about how the Connecticut Science Center helped her overcome her shyness and fear of snakes.
This prompted State Rep. Ernest Hewett to respond: “If you’re bashful, I got a snake sitting under my desk here.”
Now, to what party does State Rep. Hewett belong?
He is a Democrat.
Hopefully, we will find a harder one for the next episode.

Answer to yesterday’s puzzle: I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within.
Tonight’s meal by Chef Bill Sr. began with an antipasto of crudites including stuff olives from the Glen Mills Fresh Market olive bar and celery stuffed with whitefish salad. The main course was monkfish baked in a paprika sauce with sides of cottage cheese and egg noodles, and cole slaw.
The monkfish, whitefish salad and cole slaw came from Hill’s Seafood in Media.
The wine was a Nederburg chenin blanc from South Africa.
It has been confirmed that Gov. Corbett has requested a meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, and the obvious subject is the acceptance of federal money that would make an estimated 600,000 low-wage Pennsylvanians eligible for Medicaid, the government health program for “poor” people
Corbett had initially rejected the money after it was pointed out to him that expanding the pond of Medicaid recipients without expanding the health care providers isn’t really going to help anyone. In fact, it will make health care harder to obtain for the people now getting it, along with those getting Medicare as there is overlap in the doctors participating in both services.
Having a card saying you have a right to health care is not the same as having health care, after all.
Still the propaganda mills run by those who acquire wealth and power through managing government services grind on and the fears are the Corbett — not known for having a strong backbone — will cave.
The good news, one supposes, is that he hasn’t yet.
It should be obvious, by the way, that the fewer private options available the more wealth and power the government managers have. These people really don’t care about you.

Tonight’s meal by Chef Bill Sr. was a jambalaya featuring chicken breast, Italian sausage and a piece of some kind of beef that had been frozen since August. It was delicious. The rice was cooked separately and mixed in afterwards. The bread was Italian and bought at Walmart for 77 cents.
The wine was a homemade Merlot.
