Paid speeches...

NEWSFLASH: Hillary Clinton did NOT invent paid speeches. Shocking, yes, but there you go. Her fees might be higher than other female speakers, but they’re lower than what many male speakers are paid.

Anyway, there are many reasons why businesses and organizations and universities pay those fees: to get publicity, to enhance credibility, to gain knowledge, for entertainment, etc. For example, Donald Trump gets $1.5million per speaking engagement at “how to get rich” seminars; it's understood that they pay the fee to garner a bit of his expertise, not to secure his obedience to their agendas.

But, according to the highly suggestive OMG conspiracies making the rounds, Hillary Clinton is apparently paid only in exchange for services rendered, a rather snide and cynical way of suggesting transaction in the world’s oldest profession. Wow. And disgustingly disappointing in Democratic party conversation.

Windows 10 and DU, etc.

Okay, so I finally surrendered and migrated to 10.

Now it's weird with photos. Used to be able to right click and view properties to get an address, that's not happening now. Anybody else run into this? Is there another way to get the address?
