Buckeye, Have to disagree. W's peak was throwing out the first pitch at Yankee stadium. ____________________________________________________________________________ Patterico explains in Red State how deep and pathetic their opposition to Trump is based on their own self worth that the rest of the country don't have. http://www.redstate.com/patterico/2017/07/23/three-conservatives-make-feel-like-still-sanity-world/
MM, I use one-step logic for my decisions on my vote for both 41 and 43: Consider the alternative.
jimmyk, When someone publically and loudly reveals your true character, you tend not to forget that and try to resuscitate that criticism by doing exactly what led to it to begin with:)
ex-Dem, Has to be fake since he can't even spell his name correctly:)
A cold, rainy day in The Hamptons. Good, I'll be able to find a parking space when I go into the village. One of our resident Robins is bop-bop-bopping along enjoying all the emergent worms.
I forgot to add that the article on Dunkirk has one glaring error: Dunkirk is in France not Belgium.
Dear Adam, welcome to Queens! For those who have yet seen Dunkirk, a short refresher as to what really happened, even though I have no idea if Nolan included it in the movie. http://taskandpurpose.com/dunkirk-everything-need-know-see-movie/?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=tp-today&utm_content=button
RG, You're still living a falsehood but that's okay since you just admitted you don't know the rules of golf. Then why should you admit to the tournament never being called anything but The Open Championship except by Americans like ex-Red Sox, A.G. Spaulding:)

We are out on our back porch watching the lucciole (fireflies) and drinking Blueberry Port from our own local Duck Walk Vineyards. They have now brought it twice on Golf Channel and we are discussing how he was ready to auger in at 13 but found the will and mental toughness coupled with his golf skill to do a 180 of his prior 13 holes and finish 5 under after that. I think Palmer at Cherry Hill in 1960 made up 7 strokes but I am not sure of all of that without doing a google. Still Spieth's round for me in all my years of golf was a remarkable round of golf. Well, at least the last 6 holes were:)

Born in Salzburg, Jane. Wolfgang not his first name: Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart. I have often thought if he would be just as brillant at such an early age if he lived in our times and my answer was yes. He would have been a Steve Jobs, or a Bill Gates or a Richard Feynman. Brillance and intellect know no age of time barriers. It is what it is.

Like in all clever satires that spear the heart of silly liberal ideals and thought, its the comments that expose the lack of humor and, incidentally, the absence of intellectual appreciation. narc, Frederick's visit to Harvard Square was a success since we found three (3) very special comic book stores which are more than comics. One had a terrific jazz CD selection. Have to keep those crazy Ivy kids happy, I guess.

narc, How come you're not at Comic Con in San Diego? I figure you'd fit in as a natural.

Duke, Duke of Earl, Duke of Earl! You don't have to be in the South to enjoy the best mayonaisse outside of Belgium. You can buy Duke's like I do on Amazon. Once you have tried it, you won't go back to the pedestrian Hellmans or Krafts.

Think I mentioned this before but I once heard the Austrians described as the world's cleverest people; they made everyone believe Hitler was a German and Beethoven an Austrian. Iggy, One time, with an Austrian business associate, we were having dinner in one of those authenic Austrian beer garden type restaurants in Grinzing, outside of Vienna. There was a few tables of native Weiners (Not the Carlos Danger type) near us and a very rowdy group of Germans further away singing martial type songs. As they were leaving our Vienna neighbors admonished them "You are why Germanic people are thought off as arrogant...blah, blah, blah." They couldn't get on their tour bus fast enough:) Frau can probably relate.

An addition to the Trump era vocabulary: Manufactured News. http://www.tabletmag.com/jewish-news-and-politics/241381/news-of-the-news "FTA:The news media is dead broke. Print advertising is washed up and all the digital advertising that was supposed to replace lost revenue from print ads and subscribers has been swallowed up by Facebook and Google. But the good news is that people will still pay for stories, and it’s an awful lot easier to bill one customer than invoicing the 1,500 readers of your blog. The top customers for these stories are political operations. There is no accurate accounting of how many of the stories you read in the news are the fruit of opposition research, because no journalist wants to admit how many of their top “sources” are just information packagers—which is why the blinding success of Fusion GPS is the least-covered media story in America right now. There’s plenty of oppo research on the right, but most of it comes from the left. That’s not because Republicans are more virtuous than Democrats and look for dirt less than their rivals do. Nor conversely is it because Republicans make a richer subject for opposition research because they’re so much more corrupt. Nope, it’s simple arithmetic: Most journalists lean to the left, and so do the majority of career officials who staff the federal government. There are more sounding boards on the left, and more sources. It’s not ideological, it’s business."

jimmyk, The Swamp represented by Rosenstein/Mueller are hiding their animus for Trump in plain sight and are daring Trump to do anything about it.

daddy, If you enjoy reading Bernard Darwin on golf, you'll love reading P.G. Wodehouses numerous "Oldest Member" stories. They come in a compendium if you can find it. I have a number of Darwin's and Hutchinson's early books on golf.. Darwin by far the better writer and set the early standard, later taken up by Henry Longhurst and Herbert Warren Wind.

daddy, That was an ad by an ex-Red Sox's player. So consider the source:) If you have ever been to The Open you will notice there are signs all over the place, scoreboards, tents and none of them say British Open. There is no apparel, souviniers or other merchandise that says anything but The Open. It's an American thing to call it anything other The Open. When it was first played in 1860 there was no reason to call it anything other than that since there was no golf being played in America, Australia or anywhere but Scotland.

Boy NBC screwed the pooch by not showing the obligatory shot of the silversmith engraving Spieth's name on the trophy. This is what you get when ABC gave up its rights. Hope they bring Spieth's remarks. I think they will be just as good if not better than Justin Leonard's at Troon in 1997. Another Dallas kid, IIRC.
