Remove No, Eliminate Yes

I almost forgot to mention this one.
ICE detention and removal officers deported a man to El Salvador February who had been convicted of sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl. The assault resulted in the girl becoming pregnant.
Eligio Hernandez-Zepeda, 40, of El Salvador, illegally entered the United States in 1990. He was arrested for the crime in Schuyler, Neb., in July 1997 and was convicted in April 1998 of first-degree sexual assault. He was sentenced to a term of not less than 10 years and not more than 15 years.
“Targeting people like Hernandez-Zepeda is a top priority for us,” said Scott Baniecke, St. Paul Field Office Director of the ICE Office of Detention and Removal Operations. “Those who victimize the most vulnerable among us will be sought out, apprehended and removed.”
Top priority? Removed? How about by lethal injection? How long before this mad dog is out and sneaking across our border again? How about this little girl whose life has been forever scarred by this animal?
Why aren't these incidents being publicized? Who's afraid of the public outcry? Can't we squeeze these news items in or is the supposed "abuse" of terrorists taking up too much room?
Some liberal kook will be looking to get this guy a job at the UN.

Would a Driver's License Have Helped?

One person died when a sedan full of suspected illegal immigrants rolled over in Sonoita on Monday morning.
Three helicopters were needed to evacuate the injured. How much did this cost the taxpayers?
Or how about this? For the second time in as many days, a smuggler hauling six illegal entrants was arrested after a chase that ended in Tucson.
Or this? During fiscal year 2004, which ended Sept. 30, ICE detention and removal agents removed 3,152 criminal aliens and status violators from a five-state area that includes Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota. Of that number, 1,488 were classified as criminal aliens for having been convicted of such crimes as drug offenses, assault and battery, armed robbery, rape and fraud.

What is the government good for? Absolutely nothing!

Beirut Hits a Homerun

The pro-Syrian government has fallen. Good going, Lebanon.
Is the freedom bug catching on in the Middle East? My opinion is, it's a little too soon to tell but things are looking up. This part of the world is a hard read and much as I would like to believe that liberty is looming over the horizon, there are too many factors and unknowns to make that call conclusively. Bush has definitely stirred the cauldron but I'm not sure what's brewing in there yet.

Newman, What Are You Smoking Now?

Paul Newman, a supervisor of Cochise County, Arizona is more concerned about the activities of US citizens than he is about illegals. Sierra Vista Herald article has the details.

What's the matter Paul, afraid your marijuana shipment might be delayed? Folks, this is one reason why we have such major border problems. Too many of our "representatives" have no respect for the law and think they do not have to abide by or enforce that with which they do not agree.

Would the Prince Like Cheese with His Whine?

Prince Charles thinks the Brits are a bunch of meanies and have no compassion. Who the heck does he think has paid for his privileged lifestyle? Read this and vomit.

Oh well, we have our sports stars and celebrities and they have spoiled royalty. When you treat some people better than others they start thinking they actually deserve it.

While You're Talkin' , They're Still Walkin'

Go to the Sierra Vista Herald article to read this interview. They're looking for the "right mix" to control the border.

This problem has been talked to death. On Wednesday, Nicley was at a town hall hosted by U.S. Rep. Jim Kolbe, R-Ariz., whose district includes Cochise County.

During the time when immigration was discussed, the chief responded to questions from the floor and continued answering queries after the meeting.

During his discussions, Nicley said he heard many good comments and came away with an even stronger feeling that people support the agents.

"Those people had good complaints. It's not about them understanding what we do. It's about American citizens living on American soil, being taxpayers saying this is a government responsibility and expect the Border Patrol to its job," Nicley said.

Stop patronizing us and fix the problem.

I Don't Have a Toomah

Just because it isn't against the law, it's ok for me to do it and I have no regrets. Why isn't this guy a dummocrat? Arnold, have you ever heard about taking the higher road?
And this guy want's an amendment so he can run for president ? What a role model!

Check out Arnold.

Land of the ?

One of the most important supreme court cases of our time is taking place without much publicity. Read about it here .

Hey Osama and crew, they're comin' for you!


Caius Sallustius Crispus, 86 B.C.–c.34 B.C., Roman historian.

I found Sallust quoted in a magazine I'm reading and decided to post some of it here because I thought it so fitting. He is speaking about the Roman empire, but doesn't it sound familiar?

"As soon as their power advanced, thanks to their laws , their moral standards, and the increases of their territory, and they were observed to be very flourishing and very powerful, then, as generally happens in human history, prosperity gave rise to envy. Neighboring kings and people therefore made trial of them in war: only a few of their friends came to help: the rest, paralyzed with fear, kept well out of danger. But the Romans, alert both in peace and war, acted with energy, made their preparations, gave mutual encouragement, advanced to meet the enemy, and with their arms, defended their liberty, their country, their parents. Then, when they had by their courage dispersed those perils, they brought help to their friends, and won friendship rather by rendering services than by receiving them."

If anyone cares, the magazine is First Things and it's one of my favorites.

The Sinkhole Gets Deeper

I asked, just the other day, if Ward Churchill could sink any lower. Well it turns out he already has. Check out this at Michele Malkin's blog. This man rips off native American heritage, artwork and Lord knows what else.
His pomposity and arrogance know no bounds. What a dirtbag. The more we find out about him the more things fall into place. Churchill is a pathetic little man, who tries to increase his stature by standing on the bodies of those who have been hurt, native Americans, 9/11 victims and who else?

We Stand on Guard for Thee, O Canada

So, our pals to the north have made it clear they don't want to participate in the missile defense of North America. Well, that's not what they really want, they expect the cowboy Americans to rush to their aid if a missile approaches Canadian air space.
Yup, that Yankee wild bunch is great to have nearby but once they clear the town of desperadoes who wants them hanging around? They might attract more trouble.
Well, where I come from if you choose not to participate, you shouldn't expect any benefit from the program. Let the Canadians stand on guard for themselves.

Guilty by Profession

See this article in the Honolulu Star-Bulletin. Ward the Fraud Churchill is still at it.
He said if you read his essay, he called the "technicians" in the World Trade Center "little Eichmanns," a reference to Adolf Eichmann, who actually did not kill any Jews but made it possible for the trains to run on time and for the Holocaust to take place.
It's obvious, Churchill said, that he did not mean to say children, janitors, firefighters and innocent bystanders were part of that group. Instead, he said, he was referring to investment bankers and others who make the killing of innocents by the U.S. military and U.S. policy possible.
The all knowing Dunghill now attempts to back off from what he said by playing the class warfare card. Is there no depth to which this loathsome man will not sink?

Urban Grind

Zelda, at Urban Grind has complimented me by mentioning my Sweet Spirits of Ammonia (is written by a former New Yorker now living out West. He has an excellent way with words.) Thank you so much for the kind words. I have enjoyed your comments, Zelda, and your posts as well. It's nice to have a blog pal if there is such a term.

I might add, she mentions another site I enjoy A Man in the American Northeast ( is a new-ish blog written by a young conservative man living in upstate New York. He knows where he stands, and certainly doesn't mince words, which I find quite refreshing.)

Thanks again, Zelda!

Minutemen, Just a Second

See the article at Fox News regarding the civilian patrolling of our southern border.

The failure of our government to protect our sovereignty, our citizens and their property has led to a situation ripe for even more problems. I live in this area of southeastern Arizona, so I know firsthand how severe the invasion has become. At the same time, I am more than willing to allow our law enforcement to address the problem. But, what are we to do when funds are not allotted to support our Border Patrol and when no attempt is made to prevent those apprehended from returning? Our president winks at the problem, refusing to acknowledge it and permits the Mexican president and other officials to denigrate any attempt by the USA to protect itself.
If our representatives are more interested in protecting illegal aliens than legitimate citizens, then the people have not only the right but the duty to protect this land themselves.

Israel Offers, Palestinians, Your Move

Israel has made a major move toward peace. Palestine, we await your response. What will it be ?

Show the world you are capable of joining the civilized community. Exercise self-control and extend the hand of peace. If not, you will become an afterthought of history. If you're relying on your Arab neighbors, check with Indonesia to see what they've done for them lately. The muslim response to the tsunami crisis should tell you where you stand.

Secretary Condolezza Rice Does Us Proud

Please, read this speech by our Secretary of State. America, give thanks for this fine lady, she is a wonderful representative of our country's values and a fine example of what makes this nation great.

Senators Jeckyl McCain and Hillary Hyde

All of a sudden Hillary says, "The results of the election are a strong rebuke to those who did not believe..." and John, "...I'm far more optimistic now".

Translation: We're running in 2008.

Only a little over a year ago Hillary was in Iraq demoralizing our troops with statements like "there are many questions at home about the administration's policies".

This self serving senator will be oozing moderation and a "me too" attitude now that she plans a run for the presidency. This is her only chance so Hillary will stop at nothing. Do not underestimate her .

Koko likes Tatas

Only in California! Two handlers at the Gorilla Foundation claimed they were fired for failing to expose their breasts to Koko the gorilla.

Read it here at the Detroit Free Press. Someone contact Barbara Boxer and see if she'll help out.

Hillary and McCain Invade Iraq

Get ready for this:

A group of senators is headed to Iraq this weekend. It will be most interesting to hear what Hillary and John have to say.

The five senators flying to Iraq are McCain, R-Arizona; Clinton, D-New York; Susan Collins, R-Maine; Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina; and Russ Feingold, D-Wisconsin.

All but Feingold are members of the Senate Armed Services Committee. They plan to meet top Iraqi officials and local female leaders.

Let's watch Hillary turn this into a news event.

Perle Almost Smells De Feet at Dean Shoe in

During a debate between Richard Perle and Howard Dean the dummocrats once again displayed their flair for "tolerance". Refining a Nikita Khrushchev routine, a lefty removed his shoe and twixt cries of "Liar, liar" hurled it at Perle.
The left continues its slide into the abyss of self-abasement. Bottoms up!

Stand in the Gap

Please condsider joining BlogsforTerri
If you don't know the Terri Schiavo story, take some time to learn it. We grant Governor's pardons to felons and murderers but this innocent woman has no one to stand in the gap for her. Will you join with me to give a voice to a woman who cannot speak for herself? Will you join her parents in protecting her?

Alanis Morissette Canadian Chameleon

Morissette is now a US citizen. There goes the neighborhood. Why do we allow people to become American citizens without renouncing their current citizenship?
Why do we want people with divided loyalty?
"I will never renounce my Canadian citizenship," Morissette said in a statement Wednesday. "I consider myself a Canadian-American.
That's just what we need, more hyphenated Americans. We continue to destroy ourselves from the inside out.

It's Just a Matter of Time

This from the Washington Times:

Coast Guard Adm. James Loy, who was acting homeland security secretary until Tuesday's swearing-in of Michael Chertoff, told the committee that recent information showed "al Qaeda has considered using the Southwest border to infiltrate the United States." "Several al Qaeda leaders believe operatives can pay their way into the country through Mexico, and also believe illegal entry is more advantageous than legal entry for operational security reasons," Adm. Loy said.

Is anybody listening out there? Will it take a catastrophe worse than the towers to wake this country up. The threat is real, the danger great and our vulnerability is high. We are at war, when will we begin to act like it?

Ahoy, Jimmy Carter, Are You in Distress?

A Seawolf class attack submarine is being named after Jimmy Carter. All I have to say is, what next, the battleship Barbara Boxer? How about the carrier George McGovern?

OK, I'm starting a pool on how many times the submarine Carter runs aground.

Jeez Louise

Louise Frechette, deputy secretary general of the UN, is implying that the reason for the oil for food scandal was unpreparedness. She is quoted as saying, "we have also seen that the program has revealed some basic weaknesses in our own internal systems". Would those weaknesses be a total lack of integrity, greed and malfeasance throughout the organization?
Let's not discuss systems, Louise, let's discuss personnel. Systems are put in place and executed by people.
I am sick to death of the attempts to place blame on inanimate objects or processes instead of holding people accountable for their actions.
The UN is one of the great enablers of all time, placating every petulant popinjay dictator instead of demanding accountability. Now of course, they want the same treatment for themselves. Hell, no!

Hillary Hits the Pellet with the Poison

Tonight, I made a quick stop at the supermarket. I can't help myself, I scan the tabloids. The Globe, I think, had a headline about Hillary being poisoned.That's the reason she passed out.
I didn't read the story but my immediate reaction was, if she's poisoned, it's from the inside out.
You can only be filled with hate and venom so long, before it takes a toll on you.
Hate is self destuctive and we are witnessing it take its course, all spelled out in the word of God that they reject.

Comrades Castro and Chavez

With all the hoopla going on about Iraq, Iran and Korea we are missing problems growing closer to home. Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro have been playing nice together and this is not a good thing for us. Why we didn't take that cockroach, Castro, out long ago is beyond me. I suppose people thought he was insignificant and harmless, well here you go.
Chavez sells Castro cheap oil and Castro sends doctors, teachers and others to Venezuela.
Now, Chavez is threatening to beef up his military by buying sophisticated Russian migs etc. in case he is attacked by the US. One US senior administration official was quoted as saying, "We shoot down migs".
He visited Saddam while he was still in power (we should arrange for them to be roomies very soon) and opposed the war in Iraq. His reaction to the US assistance in removing Aristide from Haiti was to call Bush a pendejo. He is aiding Colombian rebels and generally making himself a pain in the butt in the region.
We now have two fanatics that are anti-American right next door to us. The future is going to be interesting.
If I were Hugo, I wouldn't be making any long term purchases.

Help, I'm Talking and I Can't Shut Up

Terry McAuliffe, in his most recent rant to the dems, heaped blame on the Catholic Church. "The way they went into their pulpits and told people it was a sin to vote for John Kerry, was nothing short of outrageous".
See how they twist things? The Catholic Church has a stance on abortion, not John Kerry. The dummocrats have been twisting truth for so long they can't tell the difference anymore. And they still think they understand the people of faith in this country, it's just a matter of getting the dummocrat message to them.
We've heard the message, morons, and we don't like it or the messengers.

Belgian Bravado

Go visit Right Thinking Girl and check out the confrontation between this Belgian twit and the Secret Service. Fortunately for the boorish Belgian, push didn't come to shove.

Dean Doesn't Get It Yet

I was watching the news today and saw "mad dog" Dean trying to rally his troops. My favorite part was listening to him stumble over how the dems will attract Evangelicals and Catholics. There was no confidence in his voice, his words were unsure and his direction unfocused.
Howie admits he doesn't go to church often and is quite frank about switching denominations over a bike path dispute. What a theological war that must have been.
This is the kind of insincerity, shallowness and superficiality that keeps these guys losing. If they have religion it is only important in their lives as a photo op or endorsement. They invent their own God, quote the good book out of context thus advertising their ignorance.
They might try and talk to Lieberman and ask him to explain religion to them but I think they feel the party would be better off without him.
Oh well ignorance is bliss...but only where it's folly to be wise.
"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom" Psalms 111:10

You Big Dummycrat

I just happened across a quote from Corrine Brown, House Democrat from Florida. This was regarding the resignation of Trent Lott. "If the Republican Party does not make substantial changes to their policies, they will largely remain the same." Ya think?
This is the paragon of intelligence and integrity who was investigated by the Federal Elections Commisssion just weeks after becoming a House member.
She has been investigated more than once for ethics violations and is infamous for referring to the Bush administration as a bunch of racist "white men". Two of the men, Roger Noriega (Mexican American) and Lincoln Diaz-Balart (Cuban American) that were on the receiving end of this, protested and were told by Brown, "you all look alike to me".
She has been in office since 1993 and is an excellent example of the party now led by the Republican hater Hollerin' Howie Dean.

Eason Exits Stage Left

Eason Jordan, stating his desire not to unfairly tarnish CNN (too late, Eason), has resigned. Of course, everything could have been cleared up by producing the tapes of what was actually said, so Eason what are we to presume?
Therefore, considering your position at CNN, it is apparent that your views are indeed those of the network. It will take a lot more than you leaving to fix CNN. Don't let the door hit you etc.

Nuclear North Korea

If the news that they have nukes is correct, we now have the biggest crisis of all on our hands. The first thing we need to do is pull our troops out of harms way and replace them with Jimmy Carter and Eason Jordan. They can be the protective shield for South Korea and since they both were in North Korea before and established special relationships there, I am confident no harm will come their way.
Next, we send Bill Clinton as an envoy to North Korea, this can be practice for him if he really is determined to run the UN. He can take as his assistant, Sandy Berger, who will "accidentally" smuggle out any existing war heads by concealing them in his socks and jock.
There are some minor details to be ironed out, but once we pull it off, Iran is next. After all Jimmy has experience with them.

The Plot Thickens

What got less coverage, Sandy Berger's boosting pants or Eason Jordan's slander of the military? This is censorship, self-imposed as it may be, of the worst kind. Obviously, people are interested in finding out what is going on but the news outlets are determining what is "good" for us to hear.
Is Peter Zenger rolling in his grave?
Roll out the facts and inform the public. Isn't that the purpose of the news? For pity's sake what are you guys afraid of?

Open Border, Open Fort

Fort Huachuca in Cochise County is not immune from the invasion of illegals and smugglers. The Sierra Vista Herald reports that, in the past 9 months, more than 2000 invaders have been detained at the fort.
In the latest incident reported in this article 58 were apprehended.
Why doesn't the government seem concerned about this? Is there not something wrong with over 50 people being able to penetrate into a restricted military area almost at will?
The issue of our sovereignty must be addressed. I'm hoping that the blogosphere will take this on as a crusade.

Sweet Spirits of Ammonia

OK, I got my moment from American Warmonger:

BobG over at Sweet Spirits of Ammonia has only has got a tag line that needs to be repeated: "Moderation in all things. Including moderation". Wow Bob. Tone it down man. Could yo be a bit more moderate? Okay, he's not completely moderate. He's a bit on the right side of life. (In my best stewart Smalley voice) But that's..okay. Beacause he's good enough, he's smart enough, and gosh darn it, people like him.


Media Bias, Again?

Please drop over to The House of Wheels and look at the comparison of how two current news stories are being handled by the press. Do these newsboys still think no one is watching?

The Eason Jordan it is Explodin'

Despite the obvious disdain by the media to cover Mr. Jordan's latest faux pas, the bloggers are not letting go. This clown has a history of saying ludicrous things.
In an interview once, he talked of how he had been to North Korea and they really didn't want war. He spoke about how he was there with Jimmy Carter. They had trouble getting anywhere at first, but once they got to the top guy they were able to negotiate some deals. Then, as an after-thought. he mentions how the Koreans reneged on them all later. Tweedle-dumb and Tweedle-dumber.
Eason, make it easy on yourself, go now.

The Oil for Food Gang

OK, on Friday I said to watch this and now the proverbial you know what is about to hit the fan. The Manhattan DA has begun an investigation of Benon Sevan for conflict of interest to the tune of a million dollars in oil vouchers. Paul Volcker says that Sevan has seriously undermined the integrity of the United Nations. (Pause while laughter subsides)
Also, Boutros-Ghali says he's not taking all the blame for any scandal and points an accusing finger at Kofi Annan. Will Kofi give up his son, Kojo, who is covered in oily residue, to save his own miserable hide?
Let's lift diplomatic immunity and prepare for prosecution. There's a French bank involved and whispers of money laundering are growing louder. Could our good French "allies " on the Security Council be involved? Will we see Jacques Chirac imitate Richard Nixon, "I am not a crook"?
It's just one shock after another.

John Edwards' Eloquence

An attorney, a senator, a candidate for vice president, John Edwards rebuked critics of the Democratic party with his oratory.

"Don't tell me Democrats don't stand for anything," he said. "We do. We stand for work and opportunity. We know when something is right. And we know when something's wrong."

My God, how does the man do it? Picture it.

Interviewer: Do the Democrats stand for anything?
Edwards: Don't tell me Democrats don't stand for anything.
Interviewer: But the Democrats don't stand for anything.
Edwards: I asked you not to tell me that.

Edwards for president? Run, John, run!

Janeane, You Ignorant Slut

Just to remind everyone what we're dealing with, here is a quote from Garofalo: "Our country is founded on a sham: our forefathers were slave-owning rich white guys who wanted it their way. So when I see the American flag, I go, 'Oh my God, you're insulting me.' That you can have a gay parade on Christopher Street in New York, with naked men and women on a float cheering, 'We're here, we're queer!' -- that's what makes my heart swell. Not the flag, but a gay naked man or woman burning the flag. I get choked up with pride."

People consider the source.

Cohen Calls Factor Fans Deranged

The Liberals are unraveling before our eyes. Richard Cohen of the Washington Post has an article about fellow looney Ward Churchill. Churchill, as you probably know, wrote that the 9/11 victims were nothing more than " little Eichmanns".
Bill O"Reilly gave Churchill more attention than he probably wanted or deserved. He gave out the name and phone number of the school where Churchill was scheduled to speak along with the presidents name and her email.
So, Cohen wrote this about O'Reilly; "blood dripping from his evil heart, he asked his deranged viewers to keep your comments respectable."
Too bad he didn't instruct Cohen likewise.
And where did you learn to write like that Richard, at Snoopy's School of Journalism ? "It was a dark and stormy night, blood dripping from his evil heart, " and Cohen has the nerve to call Churchill's essay "repellent, idiotic and badly written".
If anyone is suffering from dementia, it is you Richard, you and your fellow sophomoric newsboys who are completely removed from reality.

Eason Jordan, Euthanasia Poster Boy

Why is this guy still running around, employed by CNN? Remember people, this is the man who said he was told by Saddam's son Uday that they were luring Uday's brothers-in-law back to Iraq to be assassinated. They were later killed, Jordan had given no warning.

He admitted CNN concealed atrocities in Iraq for fear of reprisals by Saddam's government.

Now, he's saying journalists are being targeted in Iraq by our government.

If he is unable to prove this charge he should be fired and if I had my way publicly caned.

Irresponsible, immature loudmouths like Jordan must be dealt with swiftly and decisively.

Benon Sevan Says Grease My Palm

Let's keep an eye on this guy and see what happens. He was in charge of the "oil for food" program and expected to watch over how the proceeds were used. But it seems he was watching over how much money he could make by looking the other way. So, food and medicine that was needed for Iraqi citizens was never purchased.

We had to put up with all that liberal braying about how we were responsible for the deaths of children and sick people. Now, it turns out that one of the left's favorite organizations, the UN, was stealing the money meant for life sustaining necessities. Let's see, logic would tell us that makes them partly responsible for the death and suffering of the Iraqi people. Are you shocked?

Joe Biden Bares Wife's Shoulders to Iranians

This is almost too silly for words. At the World Economic Forum, a dinner designed to promote dialogue between the US and Iran became a comedy of errors.

First, Senator Joe Biden was almost one and a half hours late because he went to the wrong hotel. While he was stumbling around, things were moving right along at dinner. Wine was served. Does anyone, besides our diplomacy challenged foreign relations people, not know that alcohol is taboo to muslims?

As if that wasn't enough they attempted to serve meat that did not conform to Islamic dietary rules. Also, the guests were relieved of their soup spoons for reasons no one seems to understand. If anything, it's the knives that probably should have been removed.

When Joe finally showed up, his wife had the forethought to modestly dress herself in tight leather pants and a top that (gasp!) exposed arms all the way to the shoulder. Come on, you're dining with a bunch of repressed, uptight mullahs who get excited by female hair and now you flash flesh at them. What gives?

I'm sure that put these Iranians in the right frame of mind to calmly discuss their nuclear program.

Biden was quoted as saying that Iran and the US need to "grow up" and talk. Well, Joe, grown ups can find their way to the dinner table and respect their guests by not serving or doing things offensive. Breaking bread with a man is often a good start to developing a relationship but it involves showing a sincere desire to get to know him better. What happened to that sensitivity the dems are always professing?

Message from Mexico

Reported on the local news here today in Cochise County, Arizona: In two seperate incidents shots were fired across the border at our law enforcement officials. This time, only equipment was damaged. Why isn't Vincente going to pay for it? He must have enough in his hidden bank accounts to easily pay for it by now.

How long are we going to tolerate this? If the situation were reversed wouldn't we have letters of official idignation coming our way? Hey, President Bush, when are you going to deal with this and if not, why not?

Let's return fire, so they understand what the ramifications of these acts are. Is anyone alse besides me tired of being pushed around by these morons?

Hated by Hollering Howard Dean

So you hate the Republicans. Shiver me timbers, as Popeye used to say. Well Howie, I hope your statement of hate gets trotted out everytime you pretend to be "tolerant". Let's mention this everytime you claim the Republicans aren't reaching out. What a plan to bring the country together. This is why, Howie boy, only the depraved, moronic and immature could ever take you seriously and why some frenchlike fop, Kerry, could blow your doors off. Resign yourself to becoming part of a trivial pursuit question and a footnote in history. You are truly a source of curious amusement.
