    A very silly post:

    Uberfem – a terrific group effort from multiple writers.

    Lest we forget:

    Divorce is Hell

    And even more silliness:

    Mortuary Habits of the Weird

    I don’t know what she called it, but it was the post that Claire B. wrote about the healthcare system I think in India – how well it worked and how it could work here or parts of it – she also included the story when she lost her nose and ended up in the Indian medical system – so first hand experience – one of the funniest and most interesting things I read on Ricochet!

    And Spengler’s own posts on buying your first gun:

    Dear S of S: I’ve been reading back through a long conversation a bunch of us had on gun control in March. I am—again!—struck by how generous and patient y’all were with me. I think that conversation is Exhibit A for my contention that it is possible to bridge the partisan divide even when it comes to a vexed issue, by hashing it out in good faith.

    By “fruitfully” I don’t mean that we fixed anything. American politics and policy vis-a-vis guns remains vexed. On the other hand, I am now convinced that if all of us were locked up in a room after breakfast and told we had to come up with at least a few solutions, we’d have it done by lunchtime… though we might keep yakking until supper, just because it’s fun.

    We should also consider that one post, I can’t recall who wrote it, about some guy named Trump? Do I have the name spelled correct T-R-U-M-P?

    No, you have to have dementia or something to spell a word like that. I think it was Trump, but it was a while back, not many people commented on it. Just can’t recall when last I saw that post.

    The Nashville Mega Meetup was so awesome that there were three post-meetup reports filed.  It’s fun to re-read them, so here they are.

    I would like to recommend the funny stuff, but who am I kidding? It’s the reach-for-a-stiff-drink stuff that comes to mind just now. Any of Mr. Ryan M’s posts about the people he meets on his job! I’l just put up the most recent one, A refuge, because I can’t really pay for all these drinks…

    Skip’s post on Christmas was an honest to God right hook to the jaw-

    Thanks, Skipsul. Just read your divorce post and many of the very brave and moving comments. It was good to see DocJay’s name (and comments) again, too.

    There have been a lot of good ones by Stad.  This is one of the best.  Nobody can ridicule Hillary Clinton like Stad.

    I’m nominating Mike Rapkoch’s series on How to Survive a Lawsuit.

    I book marked the pages for when I go back to private practice and just because it’s really important information that I had no idea about!
