"J. Wolfman has it correct. I'll admit I won't take time to read the article, because I object to a "finding" which "proves" humans cannot think their way out of being such bigots. It forgives them before the sin. See…"

"He's like, uhm, you know, not word smart. Am I right? Who knew?"
alsoknownas commented on Boanerges's blog post A Question
"I assumed you meant North Koreans and did not know the urban slang. I didn't know it either. Responding from that understanding, I would say that Benedict Donald is definitely being played for the fool he is."

"Benedict Donald won't help. Maybe if it were "Adult Toys 'R' Us" he might get involved."
alsoknownas commented on Johnny Robish's blog post Trump Fires Rex Tillerson Leaving US Diplomacy in Turmoil
"I think the problem reached a peak when Tillerson laughed at being ordered to "Eat your salad" at a dinner. Insubordinate adults are a pet peeve with the tweetie one."

"I had a friend who would throw his tennis racket when he lost. One time he threw my chess board in the park pond when I beat him in 3 or 4 moves. International Women's Day isn't just about famous people. That's total BS. I posted a…"

alsoknownas commented on Jonathan Wolfman's blog post 2 Sentences > History Will Out: The Campaign Itself....
"The campaign itself was the most obvious step forward of a long-developing SVR Russian Federation operation, which will continue to insert itself into what's left of democracy in the USA." That's how I might have said it."

Happy 2018

I'm busy wrapping up business for the year, packing and deciding on what to keep of a lifetime accumulation of stuff and where to put a dozen guitars, and other stringed instruments. Where do the big vinyl collection and the books go? Too many books.

Antiques, the good furniture, my slate pool table etc.etc.

Wait....I know where.
