Here is some possibly good news found on Politico website re: Russian sanctions.
Illinois Republican House member Kinzinger is going to raise holy hell to pass the Senate sanctions bill. (In the House)
Wtf? Right? He remembers that his party used to stand AGAINST Russia!

I don't use twitter but will follow this hashtag.

Un"official" DU Lounge Hot tub thread...

I can't stand it "out there" after some retina burning pics and the GA news tonight.

So, I brought a pitcher of Margaritas and the hot tub!

Who's in? Water's just right! OK, maybe a little hot when you dip that first toe/foot in.

It's an infinitely big tub. Neon lights and soft music.

Mmmmmm...calgon take me away!

I just checked CNN headlines...

And can't get past the Otto Warmbier articles. Wow. NK really did murder a vibrant young man if the reporting is correct.

Can anyone speak to what could have been done to him to have tissue loss in ALL of his brain. Report says no botulism like NK says. Drs also reported no trauma on the brain. Did they do a lobotomy??
Wth?? could have caused a salutorian to die of massive brain tissue loss in one and a half years??????????????????????????

No longer a karaoke virgin!

I "hit it with my best shot" last night.
...With the help of one double shot of killya.

Pat Benatar fans?

Karaoke fans??

I guess I'd do it again. One thing I observed was the "brotherhood" in music.
Some folk got smattering applause. Some got a rousing applause. All had a good time. Instant friends if you both loved a song!
Good times. I love people!
