      Thanks for checking in, DF. Yeah, they’ve opened some roads, we’ve dried out some but there’s still some run-off water. The lakes are super duper swollen. They had to open some dams so water could keep moving and not gush out and destroy roads.

      The horrible thing is that a lot of people who were just beginning to recover from the disastrous Memorial Day floods were hit again and now have to begin from square one.

    NW, nice to see that you survived the torrent storms;

    I hope you and the whole community can finally get out the areas to which the high waters/runoff confined them;

    Out of costume: Very few trick or treaters tonight; only 77; I prepared for two hundred. Though that since it was the weekend, we’d have more out of towners. I live in a very small (read “safe”) town, everybody who has a cousin here usually comes trick or treating…

    Rubio checking in. Being very low key today and surprising some little ghosts and goblins by passing out candy ad bottled water to all of them. Don’t want any of them to get dehydrated.

    Here I am talking about “that war” I was at…

  10. October 31, 2015 at 8:22 pm

    Still out of costume:

    I’m from an interservice family; all four branches, plus CG, NG, Public Health Service, DOD Civil Service , etc. We love to chid each other.

    My Navy cousin hit my Army cousin with this vid. First two, I was “Army, what do you expect.” Was duly impressed by the last guy, and then…

    Laughing so hard, I had to put on my oxygen and hit the nebulizer! I CAN’T Breathe…

    Not passing out treats this year. First time ever not to and have all my lights out. I am hiding in my office during T & T hours. Too close to my hip surgery.

    What the hell have we come to in this country. Open carry is insane! Three folks just shot down in broad daylight. I actually think about these mass murders every time I go out in public. I don’t worry about it or it doesn’t keep me from going out but the thought crosses my mind every time I head out in the city; am I going to cross paths with some gun nut who is having a bad day?

  16. October 31, 2015 at 8:36 pm

    Understand that this man (and many others) are bashing people that allow him his riches. HE DID NOT BUILD THIS HIMSELF, as he would have you believe. If you really think of these individuals that toil away to make OUR LIVES BETTER…it’s repulsive. Must Read

        Thanks for the Senegal story, Bobfr. My son is headed there for his next posting– so much art, intelligence, and poverty mixed together!

          Senegal is a very vibrant culture;

          is your son in the Peace Corps, military, or foreign service? either way, I hope he has a fantastic stay;


          hope his French is enough to get through the duration of his posting

          • 72 susanne
            October 31, 2015 at 9:37 pm

            He’s been studying French intensively for a couple of years, and he’s spent several months in France. But the music of the language as spoken in Senegal will be quite unique, I know! He and his wife are USAID, and will probably be there 2 years.

    EVENING NEWS UPDATES/CLARIFICATION: Presidential Primary Candidates 2014/10/31

    For the last 10 days or so this has been bothering me. Say what you will, when he spoke to me Joe Biden was set to enter the presidential race as a tribute to his eldest son. There’s no way a journalist of my experience and insight got that wrong! I spoke with the man, and you all know how he likes to speak from the heart. Sometime after our one-on-one session I’m convinced SOMEone talked Biden out of it …….. AND it wasn’t me! It wouldn’t surprise me if Hillary and her acolytes had anything to do with it. Luckily for Hillary, Hollywood never met a sequel it didn’t like. The joke circulates in Hollywood that Hillary is like Coca-Cola’s Dasani water: She’s got a great distribution system, but nobody likes the taste. Fortunately for her, there’s no difference between an enthusiastic check for $250,000 and an unenthusiastic check.

      have you added to your two followers yet?

      as the Hair-on-fire Emprog, I am considering being your # 3 follower coz you speak a lot of truths

    • October 31, 2015 at 10:14 pm

      I, Howard Fineman of the uniquely colored hair, am telling you that Bernie probably has no chance now that the GOP has got its act together as shown by that last debate! Boy did they deliver on the plans and…and… stuff. Like Huckabee saying tha Clinton is being investigated by the FBI! No wait..that wasn’t true. How about when Cruz said that women’s wages had declined…no, that’s false. Well, anyway they said a lot of good stuff! Especially Rubio! He’s just smooth as glass, that boy!. Now that the GOP are really taking this thing seriously, the Dems are going to have a rough time.

      Good Halloween evening, MoDo.

      As one arrogant blowhard (Morning Joke here) to another, you certainly are full of yourself.

      As arap to vc: the Hunter’s Moon was ENORMOUS on Wednesday evening. Got home as it was rising, never saw the moon that HUGE.

      Wish I had a real camera and the skills to use it — it was an ET kind of moon this week!

        Honey, of course! Having moved with the uppercrust in Washington for decades, traveled with presidents (even angering some), guest reporting on foreign station, etc. *I*, unlike you, can afford to be full of myself.

        Arap, though I didn’t see the Hunter’s (or Harvest?) moon for real, I do think this is a cool picture.

    The heads of the UN and Red Cross have issued a rare joint rebuke to world leaders, accusing them of “disturbing paralysis” in the face of conflict.

    “This flouts the very raison d’etre of the UN,” its chief, Ban Ki-moon, said.

    International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) President Peter Maurer said the world had rarely witnessed so much suffering and instability.

    They urged immediate concrete steps to ease the plight of civilians in places like Afghanistan, Nigeria and Syria.

    It is the first time the two bodies have issued a joint warning, says the BBC’s Imogen Foulkes in Geneva, in a sign of desperation over the spread of conflicts across the world.

    As a GOP-loving judge, who is against marriage equality, I have to admit that, if I weren’t so terrified of appearing homosexual, I’d say that Stephen Colbert looked mighty sexy last night in his Halloween costume:

    Good Halloween evening TODville.

    I’m posting at the end of this thread no doubt, but what the heck is going on now w/emoprog BLM wannabes vs. John Lewis???

  41. October 31, 2015 at 10:11 pm

    DWS/Democratic “leaders” and *true* journalists….take note…the day I pushed back when the GOP tried to make light of Romney’s birth certificate “joke”… Joe and Mika were dumbfounded.

  42. October 31, 2015 at 10:22 pm

    All my polling tells me that there is a huge enthusiasm gap here for Obama. He is trailing Bernie badly. He’s lost the race and we are just in the primaries. We will look more into these poll numbers on Meet the Press tomorrow. Be sure to tune in and hear my latest prediction on the GOP victory!!

    What is a mother to say when your daughter says..

    For Halloween Mommy, I want to be YOU!

    I bet Viola Davis had to excuse herself to go somewhere private and do the ugly cry.
