Why it is essential that toilet paper roll over the top into the room like a waterfall

You would not want to put your fingers down to feel around underneath. You can't see the spiders harboring against the wall but you will know they are there when you feel them.

Trump Honors Shakespeare--Quotes "I Thank My God For My Humility"

It was wholly unexpected and refreshing to hear Donald Trump quoting Shakespeare EXACTLY then going on to vary it with "I Thank My God For My Temperament."

Big Strong Dick Tracy-ish Lester Holt? A Wimp and a Woose

Trump rolled over him 25 times and stomped on him 18 times.

Global Warming Comes to the Middle Kingdom--Slept Under the Stars

Record heat in San Luis Obispo the other day.
Yesterday record heat in Morro Bay--90 degrees, 92 predicted for today.
Last night, sleep on the north battlement under the stars. Houses in Morro Bay don't have air conditioning. Who needs it when it is always below 60 at night?

Job Holden in his pension application, 1836--Cape May

To the Interrogatories required to be propounded he makes the following replies.
To the first Interrogatory he saith –
I was born in some one of the northern states – which I do not know – I was brought from the North when a child – all I recollect is I was told the place where I was born was called Cape May, I was born in the year 1752.

This is the time for Obama to get the Charlotte videos and make them public.

What does he have to lose?

My Take: The Charlotte Mayor and Police Chief are Fomenting Violence

This is not a time for stonewalling.
Release the video evidence at once and take the consequences.

Greg Brown "The Poet Game"

How did I get to the end of September 2016 without hearing Greg Brown's "The Poet Game"?

Hornets' Nest, Cornwallis said, when Charlotte was rebellious: Release the Video

Why won't the police release the video? It looks from out here as if the only reason to delay and fan outrage and get more people injured or killed is that the video shows that Keith Lamont Scott was carrying a book, not a gun. Just release the undoctored video, please.

What it takes to avoid hearing a word spoken by Kellyanne Conway

It takes not watching CNN or MSNBC, to start with. It takes having the speaker off while scanning news on Google, for out of nowhere a speaker can begin.

What it takes, in actuality, is working everyday on what the lives of Patriot women and children were like during the Revolution.

Talk about hunkering down.

"In Aleppo once" and the vanity of the abysmally ignorant candidates for the Presidency

I can't get past this. Thomas Jefferson would have known OTHELLO. FDR would have known OTHELLO. Bill Clinton would have known OTHELLO. W would have heard the word OTHELLO  at Yale though he may not have known which vice president he was. But for Gary Johnson in 2016 not to know either Shakespeare or current world history should make him go home to Roswell, today.

How can he take himself seriously? Trump can take himself seriously because he beat out 16 for his current job and is a multi multi billionaire. But vacant vacuous "OH! sure" Gary!

The man who has no Shakespeare running through his mind . . . .

"In Aleppo once"--and has Gary Johnson never heard of Paul Robeson, either?

Shouldn't Gary Johnson just give up, now. The epitaph for his ridiculous campaign is "You're kidding." No, he was not kidding. He was just ignorant, and does not know one of the most memorable passages in Shakespeare and does not know one of the hottest of hot spots in the world right now.

The Holocaust documentaries for floor exercises got too much and then Dexter . . .

Dexter became too painful. I got to Season 4 Episode 6 and the relentless threats to Dexter's privacy just got too painful. How could I keep watching, even from the floor with skin tones gray as ash? I went to Wikipedia last night and found that if I endured a few more episodes that particular devouring character would leave the show.
Every good man needs a little privacy to achieve his best work.
