Well, I guess Hitler does have my ass, since I have not read a paper, nor watched TV, nor gone on line (much!) since November 6th. However! Thinking tonight about First Ladies I admire. This one goes out to The Captain: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g-qvPsVxEgI Mood tonight: Holy Moly.

Belay that last post. Can't figure out how to get the Brigette Bardot version of this wonderful song to post, but, believe me, it's worth the search!

OK. Scratch that crummy Jane Birkin version of Je T'aime! Onward and upward! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k3Fa4lOQfbA See you all later.

Guess I'll book-end my music posts, but God knows why. Prefer the BB version of this ditty! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k3Fa4lOQfbA Clearly, everything's getting to me.

Clearly didn't preview this video before my earlier post. https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=mel+torme+comin+home+baby&view=detail&mid=ADCA054505EF03E756D7ADCA054505EF03E756D7&FORM=VIRE0&ru=%2fsearch%3fq%3dmel%2btorme%2bcomin%2bhome%2bbaby%26qs%3dSC%26pq%3dmel%2btorme%2bcoming%26sk%3dAS1SC1%26sc%3d8-16%26cvid%3dD8BD33CABFD04771B2DB15EBA9DA78BF%26FORM%3dQBRE%26sp%3d3

Hey JOM confreres! Checking in -- since this is my only news source. And! Listening to Simone Dinnerstein and ... others whom I won't reveal because I'm just too damn emotionally fragile to be reviled by my musical superiors. Yet, who can resist "Je t'aime" in any iteration or "Coming Home Baby by Mel Torme? Not me. A bientot Amis.

Yes, Captain, I am days older than you. Bow before my superior maturity.

Well, gosh guys, thanks for mocking my REM post!!! :-( East Hampton erupted into a madhouse of cheers and honking and other aggressive unpleasantness when Biden was declared Prez by our media overlords. My only news source is dipping in here every 12 hours. Otherwise, we are on total blackout. Harry has retreated to reading about WW ll and Nazis (his default comfort zone), while I have thrust myself headlong into Star Trek fan fiction. Chacon a son gout! It's really crummy living in a blue hell.

Well, Captain -- you're probably right. Yet!!! Insert appropriate emoji here.

Years ago, sports writer Ray Robinson was co-authoring a bio of Tim McCarver, the Cardinal's former catcher. McCarver was covering the 86 World Series, and Robinson was in the broadcasting booth with him. Things looked terrible for the Mets and Robinson had totally given up, moaning and conceding defeat. When the Mets pulled it out, McCarver turned to Robinson and said, "Hitler would have had your ass." Know this is true, because Robinson called my husband the next day and said, "Do you think that was anti-semitic?" (Robinson is Jewish.) Anyway, "Hitler would have had your ass," is a catch-phrase in our house for premature, hand-wringing negativity. Today's my birthday and I'm NOT giving Hitler my ass!

@Jack 3:42. "But any parade from Seaford to Montauk is a fool's errand." Happened two weeks ago, Jack, and went right past our house. It was fantastic and lasted several hours. The freak-out was high in East Hampton. Letter-writers to The Star quivering with rage. Loved every minute of it!

It's not so much that the contestant didn't know/consider Ginsburg. But the "withdrawn for smoking marijuana" clue made the Pope an unlikely candidate. Well, maybe not!! And, in fairness, the clue may have been worded: "His candidacy went up in smoke." Didn't say black smoke!

NB: The Jeopardy category was : "Guys Named Doug." Which makes the answer even more appalling. Not as appalling, I guess, if the category had been, "Ginsburgs."

@ Jimmy 4:05 Have you seen the caliber of the latest Jeopardy contestants? A couple of weeks ago (the category was something like, "Things That Fail") a double jeopardy contestant was asked this question (paraphrase): He was forced to give up his 1987 nomination when it was revealed he had smoked marijuana. The contestant's answer? "The Pope."

@Capt. H 12:14 Noting your restraint, Captain, and while I don't want to reignite the great C-Word flame-thrower of a few months ago, there are times I feel that epithet is richly deserved.

Narciso: I am going to order the book about the Kobyashi Maru (?) challange. Generally, I avoid fan fiction, but this one looks good. Have you read it?
