From the American Idol Wiki page:
When she was 17, Lynn auditioned to participate in United Service Organizations entertainment. At age 18 she was part of a USO tour in the China Burma India Theater. She realized the gravity of the situation when a Marine gave her a pistol saying, "You might need this."
Her activities on the tour included visiting patients in hospitals and singing requests from a repertoire of 725 songs. She also met recently released prisoners of war from Rangoon, and she was told by a doctor, "Most of them will be out of their minds in six months."
Back in the day, I would have seen The Andy Griffith Show only in black and white, so I would not have known she was a red head.
Exactly per plan, he helped create dysfunction in everything he touched and a perfect fit when you're trying to dismantle trust and confidence in democratic government. Temper tantrums fit right in.
Meanwhile, the GOP think tank-driven demolition machine worked silently behind the curtain.
He's the perfect poster boy for fascism and U.S. corporatocracy.
I am surprised a video or audio recording of one of his tantrums never got leaked.
From the million dollar hugs department!
Love the reaction from that crowd.
Swalwell: The Overwhelming Majority Of Capitol Police Are Heroes
Oct 15, 2021
Rep. Swalwell provides excellent counterweight to those on the right wishing to use Capitol Police as a foil against accountability for their tRump fan boys and girls involved in the 1/6 insurrection.
and particularly workers who have crossed picket lines.
I'll be giving my son who picks up our groceries a list of brands to avoid. Even at 35YO, he still loves his Pop Tarts and Pringles but will sacrifice for this cause. Unfortunately, I don't have a way to know who produces my Kroger store brand cereals.
It's unfortunate that most Americans either will not care or not even be aware of this strike.
Anyone like myself who has worked with people in prison knows the human misery suffered by many, including neglect of health care, especially when public prisons farm out health care and food service. In addition, rehabilitation in the USA is mostly a cruel joke.
Abuse of human rights behind the bars is common around the world. "Out-of-sight/out-of-mind" is the driving principle that allows abuse. Private jails and prisons are even further away from public scrutiny.
If the the public wants people imprisoned for breaking laws then we must accept full responsibility for insuring humane treatment for all those we remove from our society.
KY rant done....

Christopher was found wandering around FM 1486 north of Highway 249, according to search crews.
Thank goodness, an attentive farmer and good weather for sparing this little boy.
I have trouble envisioning any possible positive reward for the Committee considering tRump's life-long record with depositions and public statements - that is, he always manages to deceive, distort and deflect any responsibility away from himself. Essentially, he would say "all I did was give a speech at a public rally and then go home".
The potential risks are...
* the national and international press with their thirst for sensationalism would cover such an event 24/7 for days, thereby putting TFG back in the spotlight with free press time.
* the right-wing public and social media machine would spin the event into a massive pity pot campaign event, showing it as revenge and punishment against their dear god-figure leader.Their spin programming would go on for at least a month.
* I strongly suspect the MAGA crowd along with the accompanying press hoard would create a huge public problem with a mass protest during such an event - something our fight against COVID and Washington, DC does not need. Violence would almost be guaranteed.
Could this be achieved through a closed sworn deposition, perhaps before a federal judge? Testimony could be released to the public, forcing MAGATs to READ something.
From the NBC article on the raid, that says the FBI raided his home along with the union office:
Mullins also remains a strong supporter of former President Donald Trump.
The SBA's bylaws require Mullins to continue working as an NYPD sergeant, but records show he is not currently assigned a specific post. And while he was paid $133,195 by the city in 2020, his full-time job was running the SBA, which pays him an additional salary.
Mullins was paid $88,757 by the union in 2019, according to the SBA's most recent paperwork, which listed him as a trustee.
That adds up to around 200 grand ultimately out of tax-payer's money to a guy that appears to be just a GOP parrot.
Not my home city but it is concerning that it may be indicative of many other cop unions around the nation.
