Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

After seeing those Dominoes pizza insurance commercials I've come to the conclusion that I'm too smart and coordinated to buy their pizza. However, your self-esteem may allow you make a purchase... Snow in space? Would also be a good name for an intergalactic cocaine smuggling thriller... Just a reminder - Barack Obama did not attend Nancy Reagan's funeral. Given the bad blood between the Bush family and Donald Trump - I think the situation at Barbara's funeral was handled properly... People are calling this taunting? If so this has to be the most polite taunting in NBA history. Watch Duke home games to see proper taunting... US oil floods Europe hurting Russia and OPEC offerings. Was this what Trump meant when he said trade wars are good and easy to win?... Vanderbilt University and every college in Nashville should step up and offer James Shaw Jr's daughter a full-boat scholarship to thank him on behalf of the entire Nashville community for his heroics at the Waffle House. It's the least that should be done for the man...  On this day in 1915 the Armenian genocide was begun. How is it possible that the international community (including the US to our shame) still does not officially recognize that this happened?... 


  1. Sitting presidents don't normally go to ex-first ladies funerals. JFK was the last one do so in 1962 for Elanor Roosevelt.

  2. Nice tidbit of history.
