T he president went down to Georgia, but he wasn’t looking for a soul to steal. Instead, he met with Jimmy Carter Jimmy Carter Biden marks 100th day plugging jobs plan in Georgia The Hill's 12:30 Report - Fauci predicts significant 'drop' in COVID cases as vaccinations near threshold Biden picks dandelion flower for Jill from White House lawn MORE , perhaps the best ex-president we have ever had, at least in comparison to his manifold failures during his tenure in the White House. It’s unclear if Biden was going down there to gain wisdom, inspiration or to just pay his respects. ADVERTISEMENT It looks from the outside, though, that the current president wants to use the same playbook used by Carter during his one disastrous term in the Oval Office. Like the former president, Biden is constantly embarrassed by the antics of a family member. For Carter, it was his brother Billy, who inspired Falls City Brewing Company to name a beer after him and got … [Read more...] about Feehery: Biden seems intent on repeating the same mistakes of Jimmy Carter

Oh, no. Say it ain’t so, George Paton. Was this your idea of a cruel joke, my friend? When the Broncos had a chance to use this NFL draft to go in a bold new direction, they passed on taking a quarterback. Really? What were you thinking, George? We better hope that on his way out of Green Bay, Aaron Rodgers decides to stop and play quarterback in our dusty old cowtown for three or four seasons before focusing all his attention on his dream job as the host of “Jeopardy!” With the ninth pick in the first round, Paton lost the trust of Broncos Country. The honeymoon is over for the new general manager. With Denver on the clock and Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields there for the taking, Paton did the draftnik thing and geeked out on cornerback Patrick Surtain II of Alabama. “Quarterback was in play,” Paton said. But he chose Surtain instead, because “we felt he was the best defensive player on the board.” Once upon a time in the NFL, defense won championships. But the … [Read more...] about Kiszla: There can be No Plan B. Broncos Country won’t be happy until team trades for quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
Asparagus, that simplest of foods (and at its peak now in northern climes), is also one of the more complex, both as a plant and in its history. Like the allium family kids such as garlic, leek, onion and shallot, asparagus long was thought to belong to the lily family. (It’s now known to be more closely related to plants such as agave or yucca.) With lilies, interesting stuff happens both above and below ground. Sometimes we eat from both places; sometimes not. With asparagus, just from above. Its history and growth both go back millennia and cover vast lands, due mostly to its ubiquity as a wild plant in most of Asia, Europe and Africa. Anyone could pick and eat it. Two thousand years ago, in his “Natural History,” Pliny used the word “asparagus” to mean “any long green stem” that could be eaten as a vegetable. When France began to farm it in earnest around the year 1300, both the difficulty of cultivating it and its fragility once harvested caused it to become … [Read more...] about Get Cooking: Keep it simple with asparagus
By Marie Fazio , The New York Times Depending on which side of the Colorado-Nebraska state line you’re on, the meat-related significance of March 20 varies drastically. Colorado Gov. Jared Polis of recently declared the date to be “MeatOut Day,” seeking to decrease meat consumption and encourage meat eaters to consider plant-based diets. Though Polis’ proclamation was largely ceremonial, Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts took notice, and on Monday he declared March 20 to be “Meat on the Menu Day” in his state. Thus began a carnivorous culture war complicated by the prominent agriculture industries in both states, where livestock accounts for meaty portions of the economy. “That is a direct attack on our way of life here in Nebraska,” Ricketts said at a news conference at Frank Stoysich Meats, a butcher shop in Omaha, where he announced the creation of Meat on the Menu Day. MeatOut Day was started in 1985 by the Farm Animal Rights Movement, a nonprofit animal welfare … [Read more...] about A meat war is waged across Colorado-Nebraska state lines
Today’s “woke left” has replaced “pearl-clutching conservatives from the 80s” as the new champions of censorship, Andrew Wilkow, host of SiriusXM’s the Wilkow Majority and BlazeTV’s Wilkow , said on Tuesday. “I’m old enough to remember the [Parents Music Resource Center] and the hearings led by Tipper Gore, a progressive Democrat,” he said on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow, author of Breaking the News: Exposing the Establishment Media’s Hidden Deals and Secret Corruption . “ It used to be that if you had really obnoxious lyrics like 2 Live Crew that you can count on the H.W. Bush- era blue blazer khaki pants Republicans to get up in arms and say, ‘This is going to bring down society. The children’s minds are being poisoned.'” He continued, “N ow that the entire script is flipped, and it’s the woke left that’s perpetually [offended]. Look at this thing with Snow White . They want to ban Snow White because the kiss was not consensual. She … [Read more...] about Exclusive— Andrew Wilkow: ‘Woke Left’ Makes ‘Pearl-Clutching Conservatives from the 80s Look Like Cardi B’
