Greetings, my fellow port swillers!

Ol’ Robbo, not much up for Space Hippies*** last evening, flipped over instead to a Smithsonian Channel program about a pride of lions in the Kalahari Desert.

Apart from the beautiful photography, the program was almost alarmingly refreshing in its straightforward, no-nonsense presentation of the redness of Naychuh’s tooth and claw. The main narrative centered around a prolonged drought that shrank the waterholes, concentrated the game, and provided a bonanza for the pride, and it did so without a single mention of Glowbull Enwarmening, or, so far as I could see, any other fashionable politickal hobbyhorse.

How such a thing snuck through, I can’t imagine.

***Yes, Ol’ Robbo watches “Star Trek:TOS” reruns on a fairly regular basis. Contrary to what Eldest Gel derisively says, this does not make me a “Trekkie”.
