Bitcoin fell over 50% in value from its peak, and critics continue to question its intrinsic value. I don’t hate bitcoin, but, old man that I am, I prefer gold. Pay me in gold and I’ll decide what to do from there.
Bosch Legacy (TV Series)
This is a follow-on to the Bosch TV Series Crime Drama that stretched seven seasons and was a hit. I enjoyed the original series and watched the first four episodes of Bosch Legacy.
Hieronymus “Harry” Bosch has retired from LAPD and works as a private investigator. Defense attorney Honey “Money” Chandler, has him work on some cases for her. His daughter Maddie navigates her first days as a patrol officer with the LAPD, working from Hollywood Station, where her father used to be assigned.
The series took a couple of episodes to get its legs but I think that it will be as good as the original series. I did not work for LAPD but I worked a lot with LAPD-OCID (Organized Crime Intelligence Division) I got along well with the guys but LAPD has a vibe all its own and the series nailed it.
Some of the more beloved characters from the original series make appearances (Crate & Barrel, etc.) and there are new characters as well. It’s worth watching.

Answering a Cupid Stunt Meme
– Yes, child support should start at 6 weeks. The challenge is proving paternity that early. As early as you can prove paternity safely, go for it!
– The Constitution does specifically list birth as the time at which citizenship (not personhood) is established. It would be reasonable to say that the preborn child is a citizen of whatever country his or her mother is a citizen of at least until the child is born. That says nothing about the child’s personhood because obviously, you don’t have to be a citizen to be a person.
– If an insurance company wants to sell policies insuring preborn children, I could see that. But the purpose of life insurance is to replace the income of the person who died. Usually, when you buy a life insurance policy for a child, the intent is that you are investing in that policy so the child can have it when they grow up. If you wanted to start that process at 6 weeks, that’s fine – but I would understand the company that says you can’t collect more than x amount before the child turns, say, 18. Perhaps before that point, you would collect a lower amount that would help with funeral costs and final medical expenses.
To me, this is a free market issue – if a company wants to offer a policy like this, I see no reason why not! Granted, you would also be inviting investigators to look into your miscarriage whose job would be to prove you caused it so the company wouldn’t have to pay out. I thought we didn’t want women who miscarry to be interrogated, but it’s not a problem to do that if that’s what liberals want.
There are real conversations to be had about what a society looks like when it values human life from conception, but rather than having that conversation the progs try to use it as a gotcha. It’s getting old.
The ancient Egyptian god Set tried to prove his dominance by having sex with Horus. However, Horus threw Set’s semen into a river and spread his own on some lettuce (Set’s favorite food). After eating the lettuce, Horus used the fact that his semen was inside Set to become ruler of Egypt.
Yes, it’s the oldest trick in the book and was a rookie mistake on Set’s part.
The Bush Family might well have learned from the lesson from antiquity – there’s no way to know – but they still only managed three generations like the Kennedys. As I wrote (caption), you can believe it or not.
