    So what Peter is Scott talking to: Peter, Paul & Mary or Peter the apostle?

        Honestly, no amount of confession is going to help *you*, I don’t care *what* the priest/pope says!

        Drat-drat-drat! This one doesn’t stop when you click on it!

            Don’t blame the bat; blame the bat consort (whom I’m likely to strangle….. one of these days). 😦

        Although I feel marginally better that even the Pope doesn’t know what to do with you!

        Be very afraid, you! When the roll is called up yonder this will be the Pope when they get to your name.

    And we’ll know more in ……………….:-) Was away this afternoon and hoping that I’d come back to good news. Still hoping. Can’t imagine how badly everyone in Vienna must want to go home at this point.

    BTW, I was very surprised to see a “trivia tweet” that John Kerry has an Iranian-American son-in-law who is a physician in Boston. Had not heard that previously.

    At this point, I’m guessing it will be tomorrow morning earliest before any real news. But I would love to be wrong!

        Intelligent female; caring dad (from October 2009 – Vanessa Kerry, Brian Nahed)

        When Dr. Vanessa Bradford Kerry and Dr. Brian Vala Nahed were making plans to marry, she received a sketch of a wedding dress done by her father.

        “He drew us a sketch of what he thought I should wear on my big day, and until this day, we have no idea what it was,” said Dr. Kerry, laughing. “Though my father is a busy man, he has been very generous with time spent helping us plan our wedding. It’s really just been the three of us, and we have had a great time putting it all together.”

        Dr. Kerry’s father, John Kerry, has been a senator from Massachusetts since 1984. He is the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. But given that Ms. Kerry has been without her mother — the late Julia S. Thorne, who died in April 2006 — Senator Kerry has enthusiastically served on his daughter’s wedding committee, helping to fill not just his own role, but the one the bride’s mother surely would have played.

        “Vanessa lost her mother, and it has been tough on her because they were very close,” Senator Kerry said. “So for me to be able to be there to help in the planning is special.”


        Dr. Kerry and Dr. Nahed, both 32, are residents at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. She is in her third year of a residency in internal medicine; he is in his fifth year of a residency in neurological surgery.

        She graduated summa cum laude from Yale and received a master’s of science in health policy, planning and financing from the London School of Economics and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. She received her medical degree cum laude from Harvard, and while in London, from 2004 to 2005 was a Fulbright Scholar.

        The bride’s mother, who lived in Bozeman, Mont., was an author who wrote “You Are Not Alone: Words of Experience and Hope for the Journey Through Depression.” Her stepmother is the chairwoman of the Heinz Family Philanthropies in Pittsburgh. Her stepfather is an architect in Bozeman.

        The bridegroom graduated magna cum laude from the University of California, Los Angeles, and received his medical degree cum laude from Yale. His father, a pulmonologist and sleep medicine and critical-care physician, is the chief of staff at Holy Cross Hospital in Mission Hills, Calif. He also runs a private practice there, which is managed by the bridegroom’s mother.

    I don’t watch RW stations for a very good reason. I already know what Teabaggers will spew. Besides, my heart is fragile. What I cannot understand is why on Earth left-leaning stations think they have to broadcast live RW events, whatever they are!

    In any case, the Clown Car has just gotten another passenger. A HS graduate who took himself all the way to a governorship without any questions or complaints from MSM. Now, he is shooting for 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. May God help us because he has pledged, as all of the GOP clowns, to dismantle everything that our President has fought for and worked to accomplish, even the Iran deal that has not even been declared.

    It’s summer now. Let’s enjoy the show with the knowledge that comes winter, people will undress these clowns and see what they really look like and are made of.

    I tend to agree with this. Think Rubio is quietly flying under the radar.

    @BenjySarlin . Not showing in polls. But Dems should worry about Rubio. Walker will be easyish to dispatch. Bush the same.— Vikingsrule (@derek_maclean) July 13, 2015

    For some distraction, this is an interesting article on the nuclear agenda PBO laid out in his Prague speech, the progress made to date, and how the agreement with Iran fits into his plan.

    I’ve been thinking about Malcolm X today in relation to Greece.
    The media is working hard to make us despise the oppressed and sympathize with the oppressor.
    That is why you see confused Greeks on BBC grateful for the Banksters torture continuing. Lifelong propaganda works.

    On Monday, President Barack Obama announced that he was commuting the sentences of 46 drug offenders. 😻
    Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas’ mother was one of the 46, according to the Denver Post’s Nicki Jhabvala. Thomas’ mom, Katina Smith, has been in federal prison since 2000 for drug trafficking, but Jhabvala reported that she’ll be released Nov. 10. Smith was originally sentenced to serve 24 years, along with Thomas’ grandmother, Minnie Pearl Smith.

    in case people forget, please remind them that PBO has been interested in nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament since his college days;


    this fact would be something to highlight to people when the Iranian Deal is finally accepted by all parties

    • July 13, 2015 at 8:31 pm

      Very good.

      That’s why I remarked this:

      Note that my college days were five years before his …. (you know you’re getting old if – even the president of the United States is five years younger than you are).

    While we wait for hopefully good news from Vienna this is an amazing jam to listen to. I just got back from Colorado this past weekend having gone with family and friends to Red Rocks to see the great one and only Neil Young. My nephew brought his three boys who are all under 12 because “they will have something to brag about – my Dad took me to see Neil Young at Red Rocks back in 2015 when I was just a kid”!

      so this means no news from Vienna before 8am EST here in the US right?

      • July 13, 2015 at 8:41 pm

        There’s very likely to be a statement from Vienna very late tonight but POTUS will not likely make a statement until tomorrow. Although the lid can be rescinded at any time (we saw this when OBL was killed), it will be near midnight here so I don’t think he’ll do it.

      Some people want to elect a high school graduate for President of the United States when most jobs would not hire him without a college degree. The only job SW could get would be a job at a Retail Store or Fast Food Industry.

      I can not picture an elected President of the United States who ONLY has a high school diploma and never finished college. Hell Sarah Palin finished college and she wasn’t good enough for Vice President. Can you image him meeting with heads of state who ALL have college degrees and some who graduated top of their classes? This is a national disgrace that this man is even considered presidential material.

        I think the fact that Scott Walker has not gotten a college degree may appeal to many in the population that have also not gotten a degree and consider those with degrees elitist and not like the average Joe.

    HEADS UP TODers: So You Think You Can Dance (on right now on in Eastern Time Zone) on Fox, just announced a conversation with FLOTUS coming up in the show in just a few minutes!

    • July 13, 2015 at 9:18 pm

      FLOTUS has already appeared once this season….(2nd episode) when All-stars/coaches came to the WH for the Easter Egg roll…she got up and danced with them as part of her Lets Move! campaign 🙂

        This time they did a “Gimme Five Questions” segment where she talked about her dream dance partner (Michael Jackson), favorite music to dance to (anything Beyonce), which moves did you like from the Uptown Funk routine they did for Easter (all of them), dance style is your favorite – stage or street (Street).

        She’s so adorable! Love her! 🙂
