Dear KAG: 20200716 Running Silent Open Thread

Interesting, I searched “running silent” for some ideas for today’s thread since Q has been quiet, and I got references to two movies. One is “Run Silent, Run Deep” from 1958 with Clark Gable and Burt Lancaster that is about submarines, and the other is a 1972 movie titled “Silent Running” with Bruce Dern which is all about earth’s fauna having been destroyed, and the greenhouse is in space and Bruce Dern has been sent back to earth to destroy the rest of it….

Seriously, how long has Hollywood been tipped off about all this stuff.

And, now we’re being told to “trust the science” which, as we all recall is blinding.

The title of the album is “The Golden Age of Wireless.” WHOA!

All this predicting the future decades ago is freaking me out.

Okay, now I’m really freaked out.

As usual, this is the daily thread, the place to put all information that needs to be out there – Q drops, Q drop decodes, potential riot information, rumors about MAGA rallies starting up again, news flashes, WuFlu updates (is that still a thing?), satire, memes, and of course cute animal videos.

In the meantime, the short and sweet version of “THE RULES” is here borrowed from Tuesday:

Guidelines for posting and discussion on this site were outlined by our host, WolfM00n. Please, review them from time to time.

The discourse on this site is to be CIVIL – no name calling, baiting, or threatening others here is allowed. Those who are so inclined may visit Wolf’s other sanctuary, the U-Tree, to slog it out.

This site is a celebration of the natural rights endowed to humans by our Creator as well as those enshrined in the Bill of Rights adopted in the founding documents of the United States of America. Within the limits of law, how we exercise these rights is part of the freedom of our discussion.

Fellow tree dweller Wheatie gave us some good reminders on the basics of civility in political discourse:

  1. No food fights.
  2. No running with scissors.
  3. If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone.

Since it is almost the weekend, the reminders are in place to not swing from the chandeliers, wash your hands and face, marinate the ribs, and be nice to the liberals whether they deserve it or not. Making your bed, OTOH, is optional.

Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,
for I am meek and humble of heart;
and you will find rest for yourselves.
For my yoke is easy, and my burden light.”

  2. IIRC, “Run Silent, Run Deep” is the movie that killed the undershirt. There’s a scene where Clark Gable strips off his sailor’s jersey and isn’t wearing one, and usage has fallen steadily since it came out.

    “Silent Running” is a 1972 film about a group of “ark” space ships that were set up to preserve various ecologies inside domes mounted to them. There’s a desert dome, and a temperate forest dome, and a tropical forest dome, etc. This was, of course, before Biosphere 2 [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biosphere_2 ] — 1991 — a big $$$ demonstration project to show that large scale (the largest to date) sealed environments could be practical. Hint: they don’t work yet.

    Anyway, bad corporations/bad goverments/bad capitalists decide to zero-budget the process and reclaim the space ships — jettisoning the bio-domes and detonating them. Our Hero agonizes over this and eventually jettisons the bio-domes without blowing them up and rigging them to be self-reliant. Of course, we don’t see a ship docking with one of those domes 1200 years later and finding it full of face-huggers and black goo……

    There was also a spoof made, “Bio-Dome” (1996), a Pauly Shore vehicle that actually managed to lose money.

    And, then, there is the Montreal Biodome (opened 1992), where visitors can walk through replicas of four ecosystems found in the Americas. Being that visitors are expected to walk through and leave, there is no attempt made to seal them.

          1. Ah, Teagan, your stories of old recipes led me to share this story. I’m not a cook, have few favorite recipes so never needed much in the way of cooking equipment. But one of the old, yellowed recipe cards I pull out every year when the fresh zucchini comes in is a zucchini bread recipe. I adapted it when my kids were small into small bread loaves, and mostly muffins. Now today, grandchild comes to see me to get, “Nana’s muffins.”

            Anyway, halfway through my grating of 1st batch of zucchini, my Oscar food processor died – after 35 yrs of faithful use. It’s a small processor, did the zucchini and pecans faithfully all these years. First came out in 1982, and I saw it advertised on TV in 1985 – told hubby that would suit fine. Of course, no longer made. Went on ebay immediately, and bought a rarely used one. They’re hot selling on ebay. They don’t make good stuff like that anymore. BTW, it originally was made in France, then Hong Kong.

            When I’m gone my kids will remember me for zucchini muffins, my canned homemade strawberry jam, cottage cheese pancakes, and crockpot stew. That’s about it. 🤣

        It probably had more to do with the undershirt/tank top being called a “wife beater shirt”, which came later.

          Okay, a funny story on myself about tee shirts….and Italians.
          Ours was a East Coast/West Coast marriage 45 years ago …LOTS of cultural differences that took a period of “adjustment.”
          One of those being wearing tee shirts. First generation American Italian thought it perfectly okay to wear tee shirt around the house…West coaster was brought up to think tee shirts are underwear and only low life’s would wear them in Public. MUCH discussion about it…and two stubborn parties establishing relationship boundaries.
          Moved to a new townhouse in a very small development with all new neighbors. Italian spouse and older bachelor cousin were doing several projects…additional shelving in garage, etc. so had set up a work area in the open garage with lots of people around….wearing the accursed tee shirt!
          Not wanting to give the impression of being “low life’s” to new neighbors, a polite request was made to put on a different shirt. Typical Italian spouse pretended not to hear perfectly reasonable, polite request and continued sawing and hammering.
          Non-Italian, Miss Proper Wife then made cold drinks to take out on a tray, but she took off her top and served them wearing her bra. Older bachelor cousin didn’t know where to look…Italian husband burst out laughing and said…”Okay, I get the message!” And tee shirts never worn in public again.

  3. Liberty University files $10 million defamation suit against New York Times over COVID-19 coverage

    Newspaper ‘intentionally misrepresented’ school’s reopening, suit claims

    By Daniel Payne
    Last Updated: July 15, 2020 – 5:55pm

    https://justthenews.com/government/courts-law/liberty-university-files-10-million-defamation-suit-against-new-york-times

    Liberty University on Wednesday filed a lawsuit against The New York Times, one of its reporters, and a local Virginia photographer over claims that the parties defamed the conservative Christian institution in a report earlier this year and also committed trespass while covering the story.

    The civil suit, filed in a Circuit Court in Lynchburg, asks for $10.35 million in damages over the allegations, which stem from a late-March article published in The Times shortly after the university partially reopened during the coronavirus pandemic.

    Liberty argues that the newspaper “intentionally misrepresented” the situation at school by suggested its reopening led to a wave of coronavirus infections on the campus.

      I believe there was a Star Trek Next Generation episode – or possibly it was an episode in a later series in the franchise – that “trial-ballooned” MASKS.

      The aliens DRESSED like American Revolutionary era folks (except they had phaserishh weaponry), including tricorn hats and suits of that era. Obviously this was some kind of targeted psychological test. But what was most distinctive is that these aliens considered their MOUTHS unclean like their BUTTS, and they were totally disgusted and insulted that the members of the ship ATE in front of them. Caused a big diplomatic kerfuffle. They always wore things that covered their MOUTHS.

      If somebody remembers more, I might be able to find pictures.

  7. Yesterday I detailed, using Sundance’s own words and posts, what Sundance was getting ready to do. If you missed it, you can go back and read it here:

    https://wqth.wordpress.com/2020/07/15/dear-kag-20200715-open-thread/comment-page-1/#comment-548559

    Of particular note were these comments:

    —————————-
    The Cricklewood Brief has been fine-tuned to three deliveries. One is a 2 minute elevator speech (w/ docs 5 pages). Type two is a 15 minute briefing w/ files and a memory stick containing links to all citations (200 pages). Type three is a one-hour presentation, with two timelines [full docs, full files and memory stick (800 pages)].

    The first series of tested oral briefs, even upon DC equity holders, was met with stunned acceptance… “Yes, it’s irrefutable.” The assembled brief, the guiding documents that hold the direct evidence, is at the presses right now (targeted completion date Friday).

    The goal is in sight.. a blinding light… and it cannot be avoided. Recent events have only confirmed this to be true. All around you, in your neighborhood, village and hamlet, are people who are just like you; find them.

    Rally to the standard.

    ———————————

    Today Sundance shed further light upon the coming action and HOW WE CAN HELP. Sundance is going to publish the 3 versions of what he is calling “the Crinklewood Brief”:

    – 2 min. elevator brief
    – 15 min. speech
    – 1 hr presentation

    His idea is clear now.

    Here is an excerpt from one of today’s posts….

    ———————————-
    The more the DOJ, and by extension John Durham, hears about how much we know – the greater likelihood action will be taken based on the evidence. Information about corruption without action is antithetical to its purpose.

    It is up to ‘We The People’ to inform our representative government about our level of awareness. The architecture that frames the U.S. system of government was established “of, by and for” WE THE PEOPLE. Use that architecture as your road-map for an action plan; bury them in an unrelenting avalanche of your knowledge. 🤨🔥

    When was the last time you visited the local office of your congressional representative? Do they know you exist? Why not??

    Quit listening to those who say “can’t” and “won’t”…

    Stop giving the opposition power by positioning your outlook that Republican leaders will do nothing…. just stop.

    Demand action! You are worth it!

    Do not give them an inch of room for obfuscation. Do not worry about being perceived as an a**hole about it.

    “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”
    – Joshua 1:9

    Act, or be acted upon.

    https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2020/07/15/doj-spox-kerri-kupek-discusses-operation-legend-china-and-the-john-durham-investigation/#more-196780

    ———————————-

    It’s quite simple, really.

    And being simple, will likely prove to be effective. What he is asking is that we download the materials he is going to give to us, and then we disseminate them to everyone we know. MOREOVER, we write, call, and visit our representatives at the local, state, and federal levels and BURY THEM with these documents PROVING THE COUP EFFORT AGAINST POTUS. All the collected “dirt” on the corrupt Obama administration and the sycophants the bastard seeded throughout the Executive branch (DOJ, FBI, DOD, CIA, IRS, etc.).

    Again….

    “The more the DOJ, and by extension John Durham, hears about how much we know – the greater likelihood action will be taken based on the evidence. Information about corruption without action is antithetical to its purpose.“

    Sundance has done the hard part…

    He pulled the briefs together with associated documentation (ie. proofs) and has tested them for effectiveness. All we have to do take them and spread them out as far and wide as possible.

    It should also go without saying that, obviously, you will get to read the materials yourself before passing them on and dropping them in people’s laps, so you can “vet” them before doing so. It should also go without saying that Sundance will have been very careful in both narrative and documentation of proof because ANY illegitimacy within same would undermine the effectiveness of the strategy. 🤨

    What Sundance wants…..indictments against black hats BEFORE the election.

    What Sundance fears…..AG Barr and John Durham will wait until after the election. Worse yet, POTUS loses the election, and it all gets swept under the rug.

    I personally agree with Sundance’s logic.

    If Barr and Durham intend to bring indictments prior to November, then joining Sundance in these efforts can only help them raise awareness within the public sphere and an increased understanding by our political overlords that we know far more than they want or might suspect we do.

    On the other hand, if Barr and Durham intend to wait until after the election to bring any indictments, then our actions in support of Sundance’s plan may cause our political leadership to force their (Barr & Durham’s) hands in taking action prior to the election.

    If we do nothing, and Barr/Durham do nothing, and POTUS loses the election…..our cause is lost.

    If we take action, and Barr/Durham take action (irrespective of whether we forced the issue or not), and this helps POTUS wins re-election…our cause is magnified and greatly strengthened.

    .
    Lastly, there is no way taking action along these lines can HURT PDJT’s re-election. What does Q want?? A public awakening. Sundance’s plan falls SQUARELY into place with Q’s goals.

    Which, you must admit, is quite ironic.

Would they be replaced/ new ones appointed quickly before the election? The info has the potential of taking a wrecking ball to the Republican lead in the Senate. Cornyn is on that committee, also up for re-election. If he’s forced to resign, how does Texas get another candidate??? How many other SCSI members are up for re-election? McConnell surely knows about the Wolfe situation, could this blow him and the Party up too, right before the election?? Is His quest to expose the Swamp, is he detonating a nuclear bomb? 🤔🤔🤔

    3. Message for gil00kiddo:

      There is a weird little secret that can unlock many doors in your life. I’m going to tell it to you, but I don’t expect you to believe me — I expect you to go out and try it. And, when you do, I expect that you’ll want to do it again.

      The secret is, “the more you know, the more you see.” The easiest example is when driving down a highway, you pass some trees. That’s all you see.

      But if you know about different kinds of trees, you might pass a stand of trees and recognize that “those are eucalyptus” — and go by another stand of trees and recognize “those are willows”. Because you know about some types of trees, you saw something different from the person who saw “some trees”.

      If you know more about eucalyptus, you’d know that they are not native to California and were brought here from Australia — some smaller varieties for decoration, but larger ones for windbreaks. You might wonder which side of the eucalyptus was the side where the wind blew, and what was supposed to be sheltered. If you know more about willows, you’d know that they generally grow with their toes in water, and are almost always found along lakeshores or creeks. You might wonder where the water is, or where it goes or comes from.

      You and a friend could drive down the same freeway and see the same trees, and see entirely different things — because one of you is more knowledgeable than the other and can see in greater detail. The more you know, the more you see.

      When I was in my early teens, my dad built houses to earn the money that sent my sister and I to college. He made me help — which I thoroughly hated at the time….I wanted to sleep in on weekends!!!! But, besides the college it financed, it taught me a zillion things that have been more useful — because now I can see things. I can look at the roof of a house and know where the bathrooms are; If I’m inside a house, I can see which walls are likely to be walls that hold up the roof and which are merely decorative; I can tell where to look for a place to hang a heavy mirror. I know more, so I can see more.

      Beyond that, I got to interact with some of the tradesmen in construction. Funny thing — if you walk up to one and ask, “that what you’re doing there…..it looks a little weird. Why is that the right way to do it?” — about 98 times out of a hundred they’ll stop and tell you. Even more startling, they’ll answer follow-on questions and will be pleased that you asked. If you thank them and offer to bring them a cold bottle of water while they’re working, they’ll always be happy to see you. And you’ll have more knowledge…..when you see that thing again, you’ll know if it’s right or wrong and know why. You’ll even know it’s that way when it’s buried in a wall.

      And, by the way, I stopped in a random company a couple of weeks ago and asked, “just what is it you do?” And I’m fifty years older than you are. (The company was http://www.batgundrilling.com/ [short answer — it was developed for guns but has long been a certain technique for precision drilling where coolant/lubricant is pumped into the drill tool to carry away the carved bits, instead of relying on the spiral of the drill to work them out — but they were happy to talk and there were many more details.]) If you honestly want to know, most people are very agreeable about telling you (especially if they know you’re not going to plunk down a million bucks to become a competitor). I’m 57 and still want to know more.

      Test the above, as many times as you want, learning more will light up your world.

      Now, how would I recommend that you know more to see more?

      School is important, but ultimately not as important as they’d like to be. If you look at my examples above, you cannot go wrong if you observe and ask people who do things. Never be afraid to ask a “dumb” question — it can be the difference between being blind and fully sighted. Never ever, ever, ever, ever think you’ll get better information from an architect than from a bricklayer — one will know about pretty pictures and the other will know about bricks. The guy who built the freeway won’t know about the trees it passes.

      Reading books is great — and libraries are great tools because they can pull-in books you could otherwise never find locally. At one point when I was a few years older than you, I studied castles in some detail, pulling in books from across the country.

      Never accept it when people say, “you’re too young to learn.” If you’re learning, you start by not knowing and end by knowing. If you don’t know whatever it is, you’re ready to learn.

      And, finally, have fun! Be inquisitive, be curious, be open to the wonder of the world!

      1. Note to gil00 —

        There are undoubtedly numerous professionals that are bored out of their minds in your area. See how many might do a weird gig with a 7-year-old, walking through the knowledge of their profession, for a few bucks. Meet a marine biologist at a beach for an hour of talking about what he sees; or a native botanist doing a hike and talking about his perspective on the vegetation; or a machinist demonstrating CNC programming, material acquisition, mounting on pallets, with various operations. Heck, you could have a projectionist show him about how to run multi-reel films (though this is likely over after the current emergency).

        He doesn’t have to learn anything to the proficiency where he could do it for a living — he need only learn it to where he can see how things work and what competent work looks like.

      2. Happy birthday to Kiddo. My wish for you is to learn to be a Sherlock Holmes in life. He was a fictional detective with great observation skills that helped him not only to solve mysteries but also to see all the little details in the world around him. Learning to see the details helped him, as it will you, in every day life because it makes you curious, helps you focus and remember.
        For example, when you meet a friend of your parents afterwards can you say the color of their eyes? If they wore a piece of jewelry? What kind of shoes? Learn to SEE, not just to LOOK at people and things. It will help you greatly in the wonderful life you have ahead of you..

    1. Don’t know, but saying “I fully believe in the power of the hive mind” no matter the context does not lend it self well to the anon’s message. Nor does bringing up “largely good-hearted but misguided SJW’s”. Come think of it bragging about being turned onto Q by a Trump family member seems a bit of a boast and reach for cred. Not sure but maybe we have a different sort of preconditioning going on here.

      Meanwhile only thing in there I found searchable was the z.psyop term. Comes up as images for SF units engaged in psy operations but I think the search just zeroed in psyop and z is not represented. Also the instagram account that he mentioned (link below and does show logo) shows up but you need to be a member to get in and it says it’s a parody. This may of also been pre Q stuff as these come up in searches in 2017. Don’t know but maybe some one like Wheatietoo or Wolf can help.

  11. I shared this in Flep’s thread, and it might be useful here. Most of you know I’ve been a twitter warrior about COVID stuff. I’m an RN, and work in a homeless clinic, so the virus is a serious concern as our people are among the most vulnerable. We have not had one COVID positive…

    Remember that the MSM and Dem’s interests in pushing tests and reporting “cases” are not really cases – but simply positive tests. We already know there are numerous causes for these positives. IMO, it won’t be long before POTUS has gathered the data which will expose the falsity of some of these reported numbers. To wit, Florida’s false reports of 98% positives, is now known to be 9.8%. A positive is not equal to a case – which means symptoms, illness and possible treatment.

    Via Citizen Free Press, BabyKiller Northam made sure his dictatorial abilities hadn’t been forgotten. I believe these blue state governors are all vying for the VP slot on the Dems’ ticket.

    https://justthenews.com/politics-policy/coronavirus/virginia-governor-vows-ramp-covid-enforcement-state-data-continue-show

    But I can tell you our stats DO NOT support the garbage that’s gone down in this state, and across the country. When all is said and done it will be a shock when people realize that this was truly done for a political hit job – not just to get POTUS, but to bring about Leftist control of the country.

    For example, these were Virginia’s stats on July 13th, 2020. Notice that 75% of our deaths were the 70 and 80 year old groups. Adding in the 60+ year old group, gives us 90%.

    Over 60% of all Virginia’s deaths were in nursing homes/longterm care facilties. What no one is telling us is how many died with COVID as the only cause, vs being positive w/ COVID. Most of the people in nursing homes have serious comorbid diseases processes – many succumb to flu and pneumonia every year. They’re not publishing those stats…

    Another point, the MSM reports capacities of hospitals as if it’s a bad thing, and the naive public is brainwashed into thinking a hospital with patients is a bad. Factually, hospitals have to be almost filled to stay in business. Otherwise they cut back staff. My local big hospital network – they own almost all access to doctors and hospitals in an area of 1/2 million people – are now trying to get people to come in for their elective procedures, or to do outpatient physical therapy, or tests. It’s been very slow to pick up. Most folks want nothing to do with health care right now. I feel that way. Only true necessities.

    Here’s Virginia: Population, 8.63 million people. Total “COVID”deaths, 1,966. 50%~(988) were >80yrs. old. 25%~(494) were age>70. Adding in >60yrs. makes up 90% of the deaths. Only 10% (196) were <60 yrs. It's about perspective.

    2. “I’m an RN, and work in a homeless clinic, so the virus is a serious concern as our people are among the most vulnerable. We have not had one COVID positive…”

      ————————-
      Just an observation about this passage:

      If ‘our people’ are among the most vulnerable (a point which I do not dispute), then how could you not have any positive [tests/cases]? Doesn’t the lack of cases imply that the group is quite hardy? Or are you implying that your (and your co-workers) efforts to protect the group are so efficient that the group is effectively immune? And immune despite the non-hygienic reputation of said group and also the complete lack of control of the activities of said group?

      A more likely explanation for the lack of cases is that there is a heretofore unidentified practice (among the group) that has a side effect of immunizing said population. Such as smoking (a very common practice among the homeless), which has already been shown to have a strong possibility of prophylactic effect with regard to this pandemic.

      I find your comments and shared knowledge to be quite valuable. Thank you for being willing to share them here.

      1. You actually confirm something that too many people are overlooking – well not the scientist who wrote the medium . com article a week or so ago. It’s clear that there is obviously some natural immunity already builtin to the population, and that’s why some may test positive but have no symptoms.

        Our clinic isn’t testing unless symptomatic. We only had two people with URI symptoms and we got them tested – negative.

        Let me frame this another way. I knew when people were not dropping like Ebola folks were that there was something off about this. My further confirmation was when the U.S.S. Comfort was sent to New York to assist, and that ship and the Javitz mobile hospital center sat empty.

        I believe POTUS knows what’s going on – but early on, because he isn’t a medical person – had to be careful about his recommendations. We all saw first hand what they did on HCQ.

        The reality is that the Left – who control what passes for the Democrat Party today – intentional, and criminally, IMO, want deaths and destabilization of our country. They want our children to deteriorate and fall behind the rest of the world in education.

        If we win, we’ll write the books on this. 🙂

      2. I neglected to respond to your point about the clinic personnel’s efforts. We’ve been careful, and obviously the activities of the group cannot be controlled – no social distancing when not at our clinic or center. Our clinic is integrated w/ the community facility. From the outset we did social distancing, and masks. Let me tell you the homeless aren’t good w/ mask technique – though not too different than what I’ve seen in the general population.

        But the fact that I live in an area of almost 1/2 million people, and our homeless did not get it – says a great deal about the “non-threat” this virus was – or at least not in the way it’s been dealt with after the initial onset.

        Everywhere, all states, the stats clearly show the fatalities occurred within the long-term care facilities. These were already seriously compromised folks – medical diseases – vs just age, made them high risk.

        The fact that the majority of deaths occurred in nursing homes – takes it out of the pandemic mode. But that’s the big lie they’ve pushed. Hillsdale College has an article out – haven’t read the whole thing, but the title is worth noting. “Four Months of Unprecedented Government Malfeasance” – by Heather Mac Donald.

        I like that word malfeasance. I believe that’s what they did. Anthony Fauci is on the cover of In Style, sitting by a pool with sunglasses on…can’t get any more tone deaf than that.

        This also might account for the misleading PSA’s against vaping that continue to play on the radio. They want as many as possible vulnerable to this thing as possible. Staying home and vaping or as you suggest smoking likely doesn’t help a viral load growing strong enough to take over the immune system.

    Roger Stone unbound, ungagged: Mueller prosecutors ‘satanic’

    https://justthenews.com/government/courts-law/roger-stone-unbound-ungagged-mueller-prosecutors-satanic

    In this video from the article, Stone talks about how he found a renewal of his Catholic faith last year, after he met with Franklin Graham:

    …………..From the article:

    “I really do believe that those who are trying to undo this president, those who are trying to destroy me, trying to destroy Michael Flynn — who’s a very good man and great American patriot war hero — I do believe they’re satanic,” Stone tells Just The News in a podcast interview for The Pod’s Honest Truth. “I don’t believe that any of these people involved in my prosecution are really believers in God.”

    […] …After a rough 2019 that saw him convicted of lying to Congress and obstructing a congressional investigation into the now-debunked Trump-Russian collusion narrative, Stone drew closer to God. Now, President Trump has commuted his sentence, and it has freed Stone to speak out against a prosecution team he believes was stacked against him from the start.

      I remember back in the early reporting about the ChiComVirus that there were reports of nausea/vomiting/diarrhea as the first symptoms…in some patients.

      Maybe it has to do with ‘how you contracted’ the virus.
      If you were infected because of something you ate or drank…then your first symptoms are gastro-intestinal?

      Or if you were infected from breathing in airborne droplets…then maybe your first symptoms are respiratory?
      I dunno.

    Good morning, kids. Thursday and there’s a lot of ground to cover so here we go. First up, with most Americans now turned off by the Leftists looking to reenact Dresden ’45, it looks as if the thugs on the Left have taken the attitude of “the beatings will continue until morale improves.” Yesterday, participants in a completely peaceful (as opposed to the signature “mostly peaceful” rioting and looting of the Left) “unity rally” comprised of community and law enforcement activists and clergy were set upon and beaten by BLM goons as they were making their way across the Brooklyn Bridge.

    Here’s a shining example of what we refer to in the trade as “irony”:
