  1. Carl Reiner - one of the grand old men. RIP
  2. Why are you happy today?

    Happy Anniversary Number 12 to the Fraus @alphadog.
  3. Forget you! And why are you complaining now, when you say you haven't heard anything since November?
  4. What made you laugh today?

    From The New Yorker, June  29, 2020:     'For next Father's Day, we'll get you a tie clip'
  5. 'We start with the grownups and this Kevin Necessary cartoon, which reminds me of the Stanford Marshmallow Experiment where they put a little kid alone in a room with a marshmallow in front of him on the promise that, if it was still there when the adult returned, the kid would get two marshmallows. In a follow-up several years later, the kids who were able to wait were also the kids with better SAT scores, better grades, better physical fitness and more all-over success. Except, as noted in that linked article, a repetition of the experiment suggested that the results had more to do with economic status than individual willpower, and that kids primed for success were also primed for delayed gratification. So we’ve repeated the experiment, with adults and a different promise: If you can wait two months, you can have your life back, but, if you can’t, you’ll have to wait some more plus your grandmother will die. Researchers now have to find if there is a correlation between being unable to wait and not understanding science and causality.' - Mike Peterson, from today's blog  http://www.dailycartoonist.com/index.php/2020/06/25/csotd-kidstuff-and-other-unforgotten-dreams/
  6. Riots in Stuttgart

    Off topic. No, @gaberlunzi, it was the US who took the scam/scum in when Trump was elected. Back on topic.

  8. Why are you happy today?

    I'm happy that @Malt-Teaseris getting so much joy from his (and Sabine's) music in such a beautiful room.  
  9. Why is this important for us to know?
  10. President Donald J. Trump

    At least half of the employees at BOK Center (site of Trump's scheduled rally on Saturday) have decided not to come to work because of COVID-19 fears, though masks,  sanitizers, and tests will be available to them and to rally participants. More about BOK Center and the rally.
  11. Black BAME and POC supporters of Trump

    Black Americans traditionally voted Republican, if they were able to vote at all, until the election of 1960, when Martin Luther King was arrested during a civil rights protest and put in the Birmingham, Alabama, city jail. MLK Senior changed his mind about voting Republican. Latinx voters have tended to be conservative, but Trump's vicious attacks on Latinos in general have also swayed that vote. Recognizing that American cops don't see color - that is, to the cops Black and Brown are the same - they've joined the protests across the country. All groups who've experienced discrimination by cop - racial groups, gay groups, ethnic groups, left-wingers - have recognized that Benjamin Franklin's punning adage is right (he was such a clever man!): 'We must all hang together, or surely we will all hang separately.' And if Franklin didn't actually say it, it's only because he didn't think of it at the time.
