Here are the topics that caught my eye this week:
- Beattie Gulch
- Healthy, Vigorous, and Fit
- “Big” Sports Weekend
- One More Thing
MTN News did a story about Beattie Gulch that caught my eye this week.
MTN News reports that Beattie Gulch is a piece of land nestled between Yellowstone National Park, residential homes and property, and public roads where an annual bison hunt takes place.
During the annual hunt, some of the bullets fly toward homes in the area. One resident in the report said a bison was killed just a few feet from where she was standing. Some people describe the hunt as nothing but a slaughter.
Why would anyone even consider this a hunt? I’ve had problems with states that allow hunters to set out food for deer to attract them. Then they shoot them. That’s not a sport. The same can be said about the hazing that goes on in the Beattie Gulch area to move bison so some “hunter” can slaughter them.
Those in charge of the Beattie Gulch hunt need to rethink what they are doing before someone dies.

HEALTHY, VIGOROUS, AND FIT:
The Associated Press (AP) is reporting that despite testing positive twice last year for the coronavirus, President Joe Biden has no long-term symptoms and has been declared “healthy, vigorous” and “fit” to handle his White House responsibilities, according to a routine medical checkup performed Thursday.
Joe Biden is 80 years old. He will be 86 at the end of his next term if he is reelected.
I sometimes eat dinner/supper before 5:00 pm so I can get used to being in a nursing home. I am quite a bit younger than Biden.
I’ve said for many months that Biden and Donald Trump (76) are too old to be president.
“BIG” SPORTS WEEKEND:
A “big” sports weekend is approaching, and I know my readers will be excited to learn that this is NBA All-Star weekend, and it is also the weekend of NASCAR’s Daytona 500.
The Daytona 500 is Sunday afternoon, and the NBA All-Star game is Sunday evening.
I don’t watch much NBA basketball until the playoffs. I am watching college basketball this time of year with boxing and MMA mixed in. NASCAR lost me years ago when they changed so many rules and seemed to be trending toward pro wrestling. I will catch the highlights of the wrecks afterward.
Both events combined won’t even come close to the viewers of the Super Bowl.
ONE MORE THING:
The New York Post reported this week that the average penis length has increased over the past 30 years, a new study has revealed, but experts warn it might not be the ideal reality every man’s dreamed of.
This is not a joke…
According to the Post:
Published in the World Journal of Men’s Health, the Stanford University study analyzed data from 75 studies with over 55,000 men from 1992 to 2021, focusing on the length of an erect penis.
Did anyone lie?
Check out the New York Post story HERE which contains a link to the report.
This story reminds me of the saying, “It’s not how deep you plow; it’s how long you stay in the field that counts.”
I think I will stop here.
An English documentary crew captured those brave and bully boys of the Beattie Gulch bison cull.
Just exactly like I imagined! Thanks, JmB
As Sen. John Fuller, R-Kalispell, put it during debate on his bill to give the partisan clerk of court hiring and firing power over the nonpartisan court administrator, some conservatives regard the court as a “self-licking ice cream cone.”
I guess John Fuller is friends with a man from Nantucket.
I was a huge boxing fan for years until the likes of Don King ruined it for me. I pretty much quit after Lennox Lewis. There’s a half dozen heavyweight champions now that avoid fighting one another. I read where Rihanna spent a half million for a place to stay in Arizona for six days, makes me feel better for what my room cost when I visited a friend in Tempe. I wonder if she shopped around?
I agree about pro boxing – there are too many champs and the champs don’t want to fight each other. There needs to be one organization in charge of it all. I had not heard that about Rihanna. Wow. Thanks, JmB
