I think the first GIF is actually Marine Le Pen's laughing at her own comical proposal of having two parallel currencies. Where's our friend pierre to confirm this?

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.

Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 Swag For Life Member 10:54am NotARealDoctor:

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."

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.

one last Nixon note -- Kissinger was in the Oval Office this morning

"God Gave us Richard Nixon" was Rodd Keith, a song-poem, if I'm not mistaken.

I like Murakami Whywolf's ominus take on Trump.

I remember in 1972, listening to WBCN in Boston, a very official sounding promo came on that said. "Nixon was the one in '68. He'll be a bigger one in '72."

PEACE all. What is the best first Wire album to get?

F--- yeh. Wire.

@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)

I bought Nixonland at the library used bookstore and the volunteer said to me "people your age are interested in Nixon?"

mr DJ, Are you still taking requests?

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.
