“May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.”

"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds

Back on

Sorry for the lack of posts - it's been one of those weeks all around.

A bit of the fun included another long day of teaching active shooter response and some tactical stuff using force-on-force scenarios for some of our officers. One of the tougher groups I've dealt with doing so. It seemed a mix of people who either would not take the shot on a subject when they needed to, even when the bad guy was "killing" more victims; or others who not only shot too soon & too often, they decided to go ahead and shoot the hostages, victims and anyone else moving around. Seriously - the quote of the night was "Well, I shot him because he startled me just standing there as I came through the door." *Sigh* Needless to say, I did a LOT of lecturing that night. The unfortunate part is when you can look in their eyes and know that you aren't getting anywhere with it.

Along with that we have been dealing with the latest manifestations of the Snowpocalypse like everyone else - my poor wife has been stuck at home with the kids due to the weather, along with Kyleigh being sick. Fortunately it looks like that is all wrapping up soon & she can get a break.

Was going to share some good snark as my wife and I watch the Olympic opening ceremonies, but I'm going back to schoolwork instead. Though I still think it looks like a giant space sphincter above the middle...

Gotta love the snow, it brings out the worst in drivers.

We got roughly 4", quite a bit for this area actually. I'm planning to post a pic in the morning. I just hope the roads aren't too bad. Last time it was remotely similar, getting up the driveway was more dangerous than the actual driving.
