HOLOCAUST REMEMBRANCE DAY

Last night as I watched the news, the announcer reminded viewers it was holocaust remembrance day, a time to remember and mourn the deaths of six million souls - mostly Jewish - in the Nazi death camps in WWII.

(me neither) Did you hear Kevin McCarthy will be appearing in drag as a concession to Santos at the first session of the GOP controlled House? As Marie Antoinette, no less.

THE CHICKEN OR THE EGG

Here’s the thing: the price of eggs at the supermarket has gone way up, even doubled.

WHO NEEDS THIS AGGRAVATION?

On my news feed this morning was another of those sensational "true" stories of a guy who claims he died, spent a horrifying interval in hell, and was brought back to life.
