2019 Miscellany #11

A handsome profile
Cleveland's Day of the Dead Saturday celebration fell on the appropriate day, November Second.  Few of the people in attendance had traditional religious concerns, but it was a day to see people. A number of amateur photographers were snapping away. We were there with our two greyhounds, who were very popular. Karma and Cassius were photographed by many, and some wanted to be in the picture with the two black wolves. This commotion limited my picture taking, and my time was limited that day. The weather was cold and threatened with a very cold rain, which only appeared in a few drops before we left.

...like a dog

Picture is from Colbert's show last night. 
There is much audio/video in which Trump refers negatively about dogs, grammatically as a wretched comparison. The recent military raid, Conan, a Belgian Malinois, tracked down al-Baghdadi. There is some talk, that the military would not have made it public. Trump is now jealous of the dog. 

Now, before Trump was inaugurated, i made my last visit to a Catholic peace group meeting. A comment was made that only Trump's dog likes him. First, it was public that Trump had no pets (and no warm feelings for animals unless they lingered too long on the  grill). That was the last straw. He always made references as premises that were factually and historically inaccurate, and he expected these to be a priori accepted without discussion, of course, these premises were to favor his wanted conclusion. No, false premises do not make a true conclusion. The conclusion is not proved, because of one's desire. No, Trump does not like dogs.


What do we know about dogs? They are known for loyalty. Dogs are said to be "man's best friend". There is an archaeolgist's argument, dogs civilised us. Someone brings a hound to a gathering, and several attendees ooh, and ahh about the puppy-wuppy present. Actors are said to resent dogs in their scenes.
