    Morning all. Why is it that the snake looks smaller than it did yesterday? Is Danny’s rate of consumption getting slower? Thanks for the great daycare photo. It’s my favorite! Another MD visit today. I have to say it’s getting old.

      I always wonder about people dropping in here for the furst time and seeing “the kenyan, muslin, usurper of a dictator” in the comments, they must be hopelessly confused about this place ๐Ÿ˜†

    gm TOD – Today I excelled in stupid when I went to buy a book for my kindle and got the message
    “You have already purchased this book. You can retrieve it from your archive”. Sigh – I’m impressed they didn’t just sell it to me twice – guess that is an advantage of kindle.

      Saw this last night, and thought #BestPhotoFromG72015.

      Looks like this is really what happened.

      Can’t wait for @PeteSouza’s book — sure to be a paragraph or two of this historic event (which people will be referring to as the world edges closer to 2115) and drop-dead gorgeous locale.

    One of my favorite all time photos. I love the smile on the child in the middle and the little girl to the right of the President is really studying his face with such an intent gaze.

    Good Morning Everyone! Each time I see the photo above I wonder if these kids will grow up, look at it and wonder at their expressions at seeing “this strange man”. One can see the wheels in their young minds turning

    A judge in the US state of Louisiana has ordered the release of an inmate who has been in solitary confinement for more than 40 years.

    Judge James Brady also banned prosecutors from trying Albert Woodfox, 68, for a third time.

    He has been in solitary confinement since April 1972, after a prison riot that resulted in the death of a guard.

    Woodfox was tried twice for the guard’s death, but both convictions were later overturned. He denies all the charges.

    Woodfox was confined for 23 hours a day, with an hour outside his cell to “walk alone along the tier on which his cell is located”, according to court documents from a case challenging his prison conditions.

    How the English language became such a mess.

    ///

    So what happened with English? Itโ€™s a story of invasions, thefts, sloth, caprice, mistakes, pride and the inexorable juggernaut of change. In its broadest strokes, these problems come down to people โ€“ including you and me, dear readers โ€“ being greedy, lazy and snobbish.
