    Politics: Statues coming down II

    And in some places, monuments are going up. On the battlefield of Piedmont, Virginia, a monument to Brigadier General William E. "Grumble" Jones was dedicated. On the battlefield of 3rd WInchester, a monument to Brigadier General Cullen Battle's Alabama brigade was dedicated. On the...

    Russia Invades Ukraine XVI

    Snyder is well thought of. I have two of his books on the bookshelf. In this case, I think he is off-base. Ukraine is not Czechoslovakia. 2024 Russia is not 1938 Germany. Not closely enough to make the argument by analogy work. And NATO today is not the Franco-British alliance of 1939. 2024...

    Brian Battie of Auburn (KR/RB) shot in Florida

    Tragic and senseless. Hope he recovers fully.

    Russia Invades Ukraine XVI

    The reciprocal is that Ukraine always has a peacefull transfer of power, even though the incumbent loses.

    Russia Invades Ukraine XVI

    Ukrainian incumbents almost always lose re-election. I think there has been one exception.

    Jordan Palmer on what Bama fans can expect from Milroe 2024 (video)

    That's what Mrs. Tidewater said. I do not want to hate on McLaughlin, but man it was frustrating watching all the bad snaps last year.

    Jordan Palmer on what Bama fans can expect from Milroe 2024 (video)

    Looking back, Tommy Reese did a decent job as OC, but dadgummit the center stunk on ice all year long. And the center QB exchange happens on every play. Man, if I had a time machine, I'd go back to a year and a half ago, take the center into his back yard and have him snap 1,000 perfect snaps...

    What are the Best Traditions in College Football?

    Yeah, but I do not see Fleetwood Mac getting on a plane to Tuscaloosa (or flying the MDB to SoCal) for this video. This looks like a pretty low-budget affair.

    Demonym for People from Alabama

    Alabamian is the only one I have heard, but I just read where someone used Alabaman, so I looked it up and it appears either is acceptable, but Alabamian is preferred.

    Florida hires Louisiana's Billy Napier as new Head Football Coach

    Good for him and good for the Gators. I hope he was not too psychologically damaged by the experience in Boulder.

    What are the Best Traditions in College Football?

    Burning couches after the Mountaineers win is err, a tradition.

    What are the Best Traditions in College Football?

    I like seeing the Colorado Buffalo take the field, even though I'm not a huge Colorado fan. I enjoyed the Hokies playing Enter Sandman when the team takes the field, although the Hokies are substantially less intimidating now than they were 25 years ago.

    Hamas attacks Israel - Part 2

    I do not hold much hope the "more pragmatic voices" are going to rise up after Bibi is gone. Benny Gantz is part of the war cabinet right now. If he had serious issues with what is now being done, he would resign.

    Anybody here a fan of documentaries?

    I saw Pacific. I did not like it as much as Band of Brothers, but it was still worth watching. I still have not seen Masters of the Air, but will this summer. I read Sledge's book, The Old Breed, in the staff college.

    Anybody here a fan of documentaries?

    This video (filmed, I would guess, in the 1980s) has interviews with veterans including Eugene Sledge. He's okay for an Auburn man. Peleliu was a tough nut to crack. 9,000 Japanese soldiers and only 19 taken prisoner.

    Anybody here a fan of documentaries?

    Watched this tonight. Peleliu. Tough nut to crack. Colonel "Chesty" Puller's 1st Marines fought well there.. Puller was the grandson of Major William Puller, of the 5th Virginia Cavalry, KIA at the Battle of Kelly's Ford, March, 1863.

    Slovakia’s Prime Minister Fico in life-threatening condition after being shot multiple times

    The Czech President Miloš Zeman was the pro-Russian guy. The president in most parliamentary systems is a figurehead. On the other hand: During the 2023 parliamentary election, Fico ran on a campaign to cease military support to Ukraine during its invasion by Russia.[5][6] His party Direction –...
