There are two boxes before you:

One contains one million USD. The other, a certain oorang-utang's head on a platter. You may only choose one. Which box shall you choose?

American Gods for the independently wealthy

I see that this past March, The Folio Society published a new edition of Neil Gaimen's American Gods, using a corrected version of the author's preferred text. Illustrated and luxuriously bound (the Folio Society produces wonderful books), and with a healthy-enough price tag of USD 120.00. I'm sure this has nothing to do with the commencement of the new TV series.

If Mr Trump were impeached, or resigned...

... do you think that would stop the investigation into the Russian shenanigans? Not that it should, but as a practical matter, would the masses, the media, and the crooks and liars on the Hill all breathe a collective sigh of relief and bury the issue?

Pinboy3Niner: He was like a big brother to me...

... one I liked and admired. I barely avoided serving in VN by virtue of being born in 1956, but he ended up doing exactly what I was expecting to do throughout most of the 60's. Sort of a case of "there but for the Grace of God..." for better and worse.

Loved that man.

The "so-called" March for Science

Passing by the TV while the local (Philly) news was on, and they were doing a spot on the "so-called" March for Science.

"So-called," forsooth. Where do they get off? I bet they never refer to one of Mr Trump's shindigs as a "so-called rally."

Pre-washing clothes before putting them in the washing machine. Where do you stand?

My mother just started watching the Masters...

... and wonders why she had to spend 15 minutes watching Dustin Johnson on the practice tee when other people were, like, playing. The decisions some of these directors make is odd. Yeah, it's all very important whether Dustin (or "Dustbin," as I like to call him) can play after hurting his back, but does that warrant 15 minutes watching him hit balls?

Tough Masters this year without Arnie.

"Hound Dog," Big Mama Thornton

The original recorded version of the song written by a couple of obscure songwriters named Leiber and Stoller... Number One on the R&B charts for 14 weeks in 1952. A little gem of music history.

Okay, how about the best keyboardist?

I'll start off with a little Jelly Roll:

Now, who do you all like best at tickling the ivories?

The problem with a country as diverse as the U.S....

... is that there are so many groups to hate. And as Mr Chaffetz reminded us, America is all about choice.
