The One With The Boat–The News at Jenadmin
Hello, welcome to the News At Jennfor Monday, August twenty third. It’s a buttered corn daynor as we say in Illinois, Monday. So get the butternand work it into the corn’s holes between each kernelnand get ready for the news. Because our top story is Afghanistan,nwhere Republicans have only eight more news cycles until the American peoplenforget that Afghanistan exists. The Taliban took control over the countryna little over a week ago, and the evacuation of Afghan refugeesnand American citizens has been, in a word, fucked. The Taliban are in control of the areansurrounding Hamid Karzai International Airport, which is stillnunder control by U.S. forces. In other news, how the hell did that guynin an airport named after him? Was he corrupt as hell? Oh, my bad. He was on our side. But there are horrific imagesncoming from the evacuation, like mothers throwing babies of a barbednwire to UK troops so that children can have a better life. Some people holding onto planesnas they fly away and then falling to their deaths and others hiding in the landingngear storage areas . This remains a humanitarian crisisnthat feels inevitable, doesn’t it? No matter how we’ve done it,nit have been a shit show. But somehow this feels worse. Like we can see it. We can see the hurt. But don’t worry. Wait, what is it? So at the sound of the memory hole,nthe memory hole, the memory hole, the memory hole. And the sentences are funny in twentyntwenty one, but also kind of sad. Cowboys took over a closednKmart parking lot in Portland for a rally. Apparently they consider their comradesnfrom the January six attacks. Political prisoners. To your story. I don’t have a joke. It’s just a true story. Also in right winger news,nthe Library of Congress was evacuated this weeknin a man’s surrender to the police. He claimed to have a bomb in a pickupnoutside the Library of Congress. This all happened on Thursdaynafter hours of negotiations and eventual evacuations of several governmentnbuildings in the area. It was discovered he never made the bomb. But when he asked how I was goingnto figure out how to make the bomb, the man point, the Library of Congressnand sending us stuff in there. Such a shame, such a shame to look in a library, to find a book on bombnmaking, what’s wrong with the world? Does he know what the Internet is for in-game news? Creator of SudokunMacchi Congee passed away at sixty nine. The cause of his deathnwas Bayada cancer, but some say his death just doesn’t add up. And slightly less tragic news here, days after being announcednas a one to step into Alex Trebek shoes. Producer Michael Richards, no relation tonMichael Richards, was ousted from the new role as comments from himnresurfaced from years ago on a podcast. We sure it’s not the samenMichael Richards. So the search for the new Jeopardy hostnbegins again, and with nearly everyone except people making the decisionnwanting, LeVar Burton is the host. America prepares for yetnmore disappointment in fellow Americans. Also in disappointment news sex workersnand only fans will have to find new outlet because only fans will start goingnsay for work starting in October. Spokespersons for the company acknowledge this is possibly a bad, bad idea,nbut they really just want to get rich. Also in disappointmentnin a fellow American news coronavirus, Alabamas of ICU beds,nKeest numbers are climbing out of control and go governor to sentencenbefore to give schools 48 hours to end mask mandatesnor they would lose funding so much for localncontrol school districts. But some school districtsnare skirting the news, with some reportedlynchanging their school’s dress code to require masksnrather than a separate mask mandate. And we should not be forcednto rely on the letter of the law loopholesnto do the basic things. It may seem quaint to some,nbut there are still reverence for so-called founding fathers out there. And while those people are almostnwithout exception, deeply terrible men, they had some points like. They’re not only writes that one getsnas a member of this community, but also responsibilitiesnand will change over time. There was a time when we did notnhave the knowledge that we may, in fact, another personnto our breath. And now we do. And in order to allow othersnto have the freedom to live, we need to take certainnactions. It’s not hard. Just make sense. But instead, we live inna world that reminds me of the sixteen twenty eightnSwedish ship, the Vasa. Oh, you never heard of it. Well, let me fill you in. The vessel was the world’snmost advanced warship when it set sail in sixteen twenty eightnand its say 20 minutes after launch , killing 30 people and taking sixty four bronze cannonsnto the bottom of the Stockholm Harbor. It survived one gust of wind,nbut not the second before it tipped and slid into the water. Why? Because the people in chargenignored experts. The seaworthinessnand the stability of the vessel were sacrificed for the elegancenand firepower of the ship. For example, it was designed to carry 36nguns, but sixty four were loaded. Now there are also inconsistentnsand is used across the different manufacturers of the ports,nwith some people using an 11 inch foot and some people using a 12 inchnbecause it was different countries and different cities in different times. And that’s how the worldnwas in the sixteen hundreds. We should go metric is what I’m saying. And those that built the shipnknew they knew it would fail. But there’s one thing that the Swedes didnin this case was perfect. They covered their ass. All drawings were approvednby the king, Gustaf, the second because the man who ran the countrynthought he could make boats, too. And so it is today, your father is at the front callingnthe shots, not leaders, populists who only have the trappings of power in their sights,nbut did not like the humility. You know where their skills endnand where true power begins. My friend calls around the Santasnrun death sentence. And I don’t think that’s too wrong. But we do know is that he’s signing offnon the blueprints of a ship here, and he has no idea what’s going to happennwhen the wind blows. And that was the news agenda.nI hope you liked it.
