In Memoriam

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Heh, you beat me to this. I just read it on yahoo news about an hour ago. Loved watching her being serenaded by Chevy Chase after he snorted that salt, bit the lemon, and tossed the tequila over his shoulder.

Thinking about one of our nation's darkest times also means recalling its heroes:
Jean Maria Arrigo, Who Exposed Psychologists’ Ties to Torture, Dies at 79

Joe Lieberman, 2000 vice presidential nominee, dies at 82

Good riddance. He, Montana's Baucus and some Midwest Sen prevented single payer debate, killed the public option and otherwise made the ACA much worse than most Americans, the majority Dems and Obama wanted.

Rest poorly.

In 2023, Lieberman reemerged as the public face of No Labels, a political organization designed to give Americans a third option in elections, one designed to restore civility and bring unity to the process.

Lieberman's family stated that he died "due to complications from a fall.
Cue the conspiracy nuts.

The Tropicana Las Vegas, a mob-era casino and Sin City landmark, closes after 67 years

A little sad, same age as me. I've been there, but it was decades ago and it doesn't stand out from the other casinos in my memory. I did not check out the Folies Bergere, which I regret. Metaphorically, I'm also worn, stained, tattered and past my prime, but I'm still kicking and no one is replacing me with a baseball stadium - though I suppose I was already replaced with an interchangeable nurse :think:

Buncha half-naked showgirls dancing isn't really my thing. Hence, I never went. However, I almost feel like I should be able to say that I had the experience like you did -0-? I've been to stripper bars 3 times. Didn't really enjoy myself, but at least I tried it.

It wasn't titillating, it wasn't artsy....it was however cheesy. Like something that trump supporters would think is high class lifestyles of the rich and famous.

Caitlyn Jenner’s 2-Word Send-Off To O.J. Simpson Is Pure Ice
The football star died of cancer at the age of 76.


... “Good Riddance #OJSimpson,” the Olympian tweeted Thursday morning, just hours after Simpson’s family announced he had died of cancer at the age of 76.

Jenner has long had sour feelings for Simpson.

In her 2017 memoir “The Secrets of My Life,” she described her fellow athlete as “the most narcissistic, egocentric, neediest asshole in the world of sports I had ever seen.”

... “I knew he did it,” Jenner told Andy Cohen in 2017. “There was three people at the crime scene: DNA evidence, three people at the crime scene. Pick a murderer. How hard is that?”...
