This interview with Stephen Colbert will be rebroadcast on CNN Sunday evening, IIRC.

Very moving.

You do know that the baby's parents were both killed/murdered in the mass killing, don't you?

The baby was brought to 45's photo op by an uncle, who is a fan of you-know-who/45

Online solitaire - want it free and without spam following.

The other evening I was in the mood to play a few games of solitaire online.
Used google and found one that I thought would fill my need.
The solitaire games were fine, but the next few days my e-mailbox was full of spam ads - "enlargement" and all that junk.

Can anyone recommend a site where I can just play a few simple games of solitaire without being inundated with spam ads?

We were not permitted to go to large swimming pools where the public

congregated because of the fear of polio.

Also, re swimming pools, do you remember having to walk through foot rinsing water thing before entering the swimming pool? I believe it was to combat athlete's foot.

Agree in general. DU's subscribers are more likely than the average person in US to be

more knowledgeable in many subjects because they tend to be curiosity-based fact-consumers in general.

A short-answer quiz of limited number of questions is fairly easy for many to ace; in depth questions in a specific field would be much more difficult for all.

Many or even most subjects advance as one grows older, so a well-informed person has to continue in adapting what was learned in high school or college to current knowledge standards.
How much adaptation or new learning is done is usually a free choice by the individual.
I count myself as one who has not grown much in adulthood in certain fields.

Time, interest and demands of work and life limit our ability to consume new knowledge.

15/15- Roman Catholic.

I guess DU members who choose to participate in Religion Group are not truly "average".

Miralax as needed. Recommended to me by my female urologist, who said she takes it every day.

A tasteless powder. I tend to take small amount - perhaps a tsp. in my black coffee.
The amount could be increased, though I seldom do so. To me, less is always better than too much.

If needed, a quarter cup raisin bran combined with my other dry cereals - 3/4 c- and milk.

For extreme need, I have a container of delicious dates, which I don't dare touch unless the need is truly there.

You can even go to Canada while there...

Wondering why we have two Dakotas. Wouldn't one big Dakota be enough?

(Sorry, Dakotans- don't mean to denigrate your states, but, really.....)
What were they thinking?

This is a disgrace. I am a Hamilton County voter who voted against the Bengals lease 23 yrs ago.

Now the powers-that-be have voted to build a field for a third sports team - the new soccer franchise, owned by one of the area's richest men, a member of the Lindner family, huge Republican donors.

I am no longer interested in professional sports; consider it a waste of time and energy, especially when there are so many pressing problems locally, nationally, and worldwide.

In my younger days I was a huge Reds fan, but no longer pay it any attention.
I do enjoy some college sports on TV, especially NCAA basketball.
