Internet radio and archives are permitted to exist because enough people agree that they 'can't' be used to download, so, for example stations don't post direct links to .mp3 files, instead embedding pointers to them in .m3u or .pls files, and I'll say no more.

Can you grow a second baby from the umbilical cuttings if it's cut by the elevator or does that only work if the doctor cuts it? We really need to take into account the best way to optimize the number of babies here. This poor child will grow up the subject of tabloids and celebrity gossip magazines, having a stand-in to share the spotlight with would probably ease some of that stress.

Rev. Gonzo:

"If the right people had been in charge of Nixon's funeral, his casket would have been launched into one of those open-sewage canals that empty into the ocean just south of Los Angeles. He was a swine of a man and a jabbering dupe of a president. Nixon was so crooked that he needed servants to help him screw his pants on every morning. Even his funeral was illegal. He was queer in the deepest way. His body should have been burned in a trash bin."

Even I'm not familiar with US politics just by listening to these songs I am pretty sure Dixon was a good US president.

I'm reading a book that describes the downfall of Nixon. Man, I never get tired of that story.

Good book so far. The Invisible Bridge: The Fall if Nixon and the Rise of Reagan, by Rick Perlstein. Perlstein is one of the few who correctly called Trump's victory

@howard: Oh man, I have to second your recommendation of Perlstein. His biographies of Goldwater and Nixon are SUPERB. "Nixonland", a preview of "Trumplandia".

Nixon's term was a car trip under the thumb of an ill-tempered Dad that ended with his shamming an heart attack; the Trump years are a road accident between an Untergangzeit wood-burning truck and a giant, pain- and lust-wracked, newt that afterward noöne will dare approach near enough to clean-up after, we'll have to justanchor down some orange cones and 'Caution—Slippery' signs and back away slowly, making sure every moment the whole mess hasn't resurrected itself into some new parody of life.

@PRB: yep, I read those two first. I've spend the last few weeks with the conservative movement takeover of the GOP, plowing through these. They are super detailed, which I love, but it may be too dense for a lot of casual readers. But I love Perlstein's style and attention to detail. He seems to treat these folks very fairly, but I'm biased, and some folks on the right may disagree. ( they don't hang out here anyway)

Lenny Bruce did a routine in which Nixon calls Eisenhower from Venezuela, sounding like a self-pitying comic calling his agent after bombing at a performance.

Ken, you need to add stem cells to grow a new dingo. I am sure they are available on the internet, somewhere.
