This is Bernie to me.

Wasn't sure where to put it, figured I had less chance of getting in trouble here.

BTW, I think Neil Simon is this century's Shakespeare.

Wow in Texas re Bernie.

I'm going to phone bank tomorrow at a home in the large, affluent retirement community across the highway.

I remarked to the host that she must, as a Democrat, feel kinda lonely there, as I had heard horror stories from Democrats who had canvassed door-to-door there.

She said all but one of her immediate neighbors were for Bernie.

I don't remember the exact point,

But I know that corporations need to be muzzled and leashed.

That's the exact reason

To Obama.

NEWLY RESTORED FILM SHOWS SEGREGATION PROTESTS AT HOUSTON LUNCH COUNTERS

http://abc7news.com/news/historic-film-shows-lunch-counter-protests-in-1960-houston/1163889/

For the first time in more than five decades you can take a look at a piece of Houston history; film that was shot of protests and demonstrations to end segregation in Houston.

On March 4 1960, students from TSU staged a sit-in at the Weingarten's lunch counter to protest segregation at Houston eateries. The following day, they held a sit-in at Madding's drug store.

KTRK was there and shot film of the sit-ins as well as a protest at the cafeteria at City Hall.

Hogrobrooks efforts in organizing a series of lunch counter demonstrations at supermarkets and drug stores across the city in 1960 helped end segregation in Houston.


OK.

She's Andrea Mitchell.

Who freely chose to be closely associated with Alan Greenspan.

And virtually never mentions it.

Nor recuses herself where appropriate.

There.

I would not dream of calling her that were I to meet her personally.

(Not bloody likely.)

As shorthand, in discussion, for whom she *chooses* to associate with, well....

What's better than Tom Lehrer doing Vatican Rag?

Why, this, of course!
