Just remembered something: when I lived in France I went to listen to Bach's Matthäus - Passion.The singers certainly weren't German, yet had perfect pronunciation.
(Another fact which struck me at the time was that the unique viola da gamba in the orchestra effortlessly dominated the racket, not a matter of volume but of timbre.)

Something Ed will not appreciate, the new Ruger wrangler revolver... I expect a ruger revolver to be somewhat manly but this...:

“This model features checkered wood grip panels for a non-slip texture and is topped off with an emasculate Cobalt Cerakote finish, which gives it a cool look.”


Hand in your man card when you buy it. (Maybe that’s just standard wording on 22lr nowadays?)

Union: Remington Arms, oldest U.S. gunmaker, terminates 585 employees at birthplace

Almost 600 employees at the Remington Arms plant in Ilion were told Friday that they would be terminated, effective Monday, the local union said.

The Remington Outdoor Company is also refusing to pay severance and accrued vacation benefits, according to a statement from the United Mine Workers of America (UMWA), the union that represents the workers.

Remington is obligated to pay severance and vacation benefits under a collective bargaining agreement, UMWA officials said.

Remington is terminating 585 employees, according to UMWA.

Ilion, a small Herkimer County village of 8,000 people, is the birthplace of America's oldest gunmaker, which first started making guns there in 1816.

“This outrageous action by Remington Outdoor company is a slap in the face to the employees who built that company into the best firearms manufacturer in the world,” UMWA International president Cecil E. Roberts, said in a statement.

“UMWA Local Union 717 has already filed a series of grievances under our collective bargaining agreement, and the UMWA International Union is exploring further legal action.”

The sale of the Remington plant in Ilion to Roundhill Group, LLC was approved late last month in federal bankruptcy court as part of the Remington Outdoor Company bankruptcy case, according to court documents.
