Bad news for Wronwright: “China bans time travel”.

Apparently telling Gaddafi to go is about as effective as telling a beagle, “come here!”

Not sure how I missed this, but thanks to Greg for reminding me: a belated happy birthday to Gina Elise.

36 Chambers explains why, in the old days, you’d ask the operator for Pennsylvania 6-5000.

Troglopundit has the delicious irony of the day.

Smitty contemplates the Trump phenomenon.

As a Virginian, I take a dim view of the possibility of a “Senator” Tim Kaine. So does SWAC Girl.

Does Little Miss Attila pose a threat to the environment? (Sorry, what was the question again?)

Obama hears mysterious footsteps.

It was just another day down on Swampy’s farm. Also, happy anniversary to Swampy and her man!

So, that’s where my bags went.

On so many levels, Keith Olbermann is a perfect demonstration of the necessity of the work the Tourette Syndrome Association does.

Re: Pennsylvania 6-5000. Yeah ours was GRanite 9. Back in the day you didn't use numbers like 479you used Granite 9----. What am I missing here? There must be some reason he brought this up. Pennsylvania 6-5000 was the famous Glenn Miller song. This was the number for the Hotel Pennsylvania in NYC. It housed the Cafe Rouge which was a famous hangout for big bands at the time. The Glenn Miller orchestra played there many times, hence the title of the song.

Ha! I remember when we were on a rural party line, and our phone number was 45F3. Our 'ring' was 3 shorts. That was more than 60 years ago. We then had WIndsor 2-2723 until my mom died a couple of years ago.

Trump is resonating with the centre. He's the only Republican candidate that has a hope in hell of beating Obama. Dismiss him, fellow Righties, at your own peril.
