  1. Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

    Remember Foul Play - 1978 flick with Goldie Hawn & Chevy Chase.  Goldie played a librarian named Gloria Monday, a sop for those who could remember sic transit gloria mundi.  It's a fun movie, featuring Billy Barty, The Mikado, the Pope, San Francisco, and a funny car chase.
  2. Xmas family pictures

    The Fuenflings, proving knit garments needn't be big to be ugly.  
  3. What's got you flummoxed today?

    My Ancestry.com file denies African descent.  My mother's prejudice against Jews and African-Americans, and apparently non-white people of all persuasions, was unpleasant.  I think I'd have to say my mother was an Equal Opportunity Deprecater.  She even believed molested girls were asking for it, and could only respond with silence when I brought up the rape of toddlers and infants.  She just couldn't believe that people would do horrible things.   She wasn't perfect, but she was a loving mother.  We weren't whipped with belts or switches.  We weren't brought up to dislike Jews or black people or to call names at Others.  She couldn't restrain her contempt of Ronald Reagan, and I hope she'd have voted against Trump: but if she'd survived the 20th Century, who knows what she'd have thought at 102 years of age?  
  4. You must not mean December 10.  It's already December 17.
  5. What's got you flummoxed today?

    I agree, @French bean, though perhaps out of necessity: after all, I am what I am.  My sisters and I were scandalized at our mother's remark, since she was actually expressing her dismay that my brother hadn't married 'one of us', also saying, '...but he's not very brown'.  But my nephew was a brilliant child, for sure. 
  6. What's got you flummoxed today?

      My mother the dog fancier said of my half-Mexican half-English/Irish/touch Scandinavian & German nephew, 'He's full of hybrid vigor.'  My family celebrates diversity. If that means 'mongrels', make the most of it.
  7. What made you laugh today?

      David Jay Pecker is the chairman and CEO of American Media. He is the publisher of National Enquirer and other supermarket gossip magazines specializing in honest-to-God-fake-news.  He has admitted to buying stories by women Trump had harassed and burying them, preventing publication of articles which could paint Trump in a bad light.
  8. Only in America...

      Orrin Hatch, one of Utah's senators, has long been applauded for his moral stance. See video for Hatch's moral stand on Trump's possible campaign violations that have already sent Michael Cohen to jail for three years.  Hatch has since stepped back from his remarks.
  9.   Sweetie, how you will be remembered is as a lying sycophant of a lying bag of excrement.
  10. Politics Gen XYZ

    Someone on Facebook suggested Pence had been hunted down by the Trump brothers and his stuffed effigy is now hauled out for public appearances.
  11. Politics Gen XYZ

    For example, it could be a porky guy sitting on the bed in the Lincoln Bedroom, in the White House.
  12. It's still early days, @LeonG.  The mills of the gods grind slowly...
  13. Robert Reich has suggested that Trump might resign on January 19, 2023, allowing President Pence to pardon Trump the day before a new President, hopefully a Democrat, is inaugurated.
  14. Tip of the day

    In our days in Bayern (1971 - 1982), first-grade girls learned to crochet a bolero and skirt for their own wear.
