CNN is a channel I never used to look at, but now it's a daily
requirement: Spicer's daily press conference has become a great soap
opera. But it has been noted that Spicer has an audience of one that
he plays to, our sociopathic president. El Jefe watches the press
conference and than critiques Spicer afterward (in addition to how he
answers questions, after Spicer's first couple of meetings with the
press Trump told him his suits were ill-fitting and that he should not
wear those light colored suits). It has been leaked that Spicer finds
the daily presidential criticism stressful.

Flynn was an intelligence expert who apparently never suspected that the FBI could be tapping the phone of the Russian Ambassador. Isn't that naïve for a man who spent the last 30 years of his life in the world of intelligence?

And how many foreign spies do you think are now working at Mar-a-Logo? Spies in the dining crew, spies in the housekeeping staff, you probably can't swing the nuclear football without hitting a spy.

You have to understand that there are two totally separate
concepts called "intelligence":

1. the ability to acquire and apply knowledge and skills.

2. the collection of information of military or political value.

The former is derived from the Latin "intelligere" -- which means
to understand; the latter is of unknown -- possibly alien -- origin,
and is used with a straight face only above the relevant glass ceilings.

<thinks: why the fuck is it called the nuclear *football*?? Let's ask
Jimmy Wales>

Turns out that not only is it not football-shaped, it isn't rugby ball-
shaped, either (that's what the elongated ball Americans call a
"football" really is).

It is, in fact, a rectangular metal briefcase (you know the sort -- a bit
ugly but strong and serviceable; curved corners) with an antenna sticking
out of it ... placed, for some incomprehensible reason, inside a somewhat
more tasteful leather briefcase.

It contains booklets -- and summary cards for the more than usually
addle-pated president -- detailing the kinds of nuke attacks the president
can order, and the necessary authentication codes. Plus, one assumes on
account of that antenna, some kind of secure communications device that
the president can use to give the order.

In a somewhat unnerving aside, Wikipedia comments,
] Journalist Ron Rosenbaum has pointed out that the operational plan for

] late 1973 for asking the question "How can I know that an order I receive
] to launch my missiles came from a sane president?"

According to the Washington Post, America's launch protocols were put
together in the days when everyone worried more about insane generals than
about insane presidents.


(At which point I realise that I still don't know why it's called the
nuclear football. Wikipedia does tentatively offer a possible derivation,
but it doesn't sound very convincing. The internet is like that.)

Are you sure? I think a rugby ball is more rounded than an American
football.

Because you can throw a pass with it, and if you throw if far enough
it's a "Hail Mary"?

According to former Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara, the Football acquired its name from an early nuclear war plan code-named “Dropkick.” (“Dropkick” needed a “football” in order to be put into effect.) The earliest known photograph of a military aide trailing the president with the telltale black briefcase (a modified version of a standard Zero-Halliburton model) was taken on May 10, 1963, at the Kennedy family compound in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts.

The standard play in American (and Canadian) style football is to hold
tightly to the ball while you try to run somewhere, and people dressed
differently than you are trying to take it away from you.

Unlike the game, you don't get four (or three) tries at it.

http://www.politico.com/blogs/donald-trump-administration/2017/02/white-house-failed-background-checks-dismissals-235112

"Several White House staffers were dismissed Thursday morning after failing FBI
background checks, according to sources familiar with the matter.

"Some of the aides were "walked out of the building by security" on Wednesday
after not passing the SF86, a Questionnaire for National Security Positions for
security clearance.

"Among those who won't be working at the White House was President Donald
Trump’s director of scheduling, Caroline Wiles, the daughter of Susan Wiles,
Trump’s Florida campaign director and former chief of staff to Governor Rick
Scott. Wiles, who resigned Friday before the background check was completed,
was appointed deputy assistant secretary before the inauguration in January. Two
sources close to Wiles said she will get another job in Treasury.

"She's among others who failed to pass the intensive background check, which
includes questions on the applicant's credit score, substance use and other
personal subjects."

The vetting system worked. As I posted above, the vetting is done by
people who have been doing that kind of work for decades.

Did you ever see the movie, "Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop
Worrying and Love the Bomb"? see:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dr._Strangelove
It's from 1964 but it never seems to be out-dated.

Maybe later in Trump's administration everyone will watch "Seven Days
in May", another 1964 movie:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1964 American political thriller motion picture about a
military-political cabal's planned take-over of the United States
government in reaction to the president's negotiation of a disarmament
treaty with the Soviet Union. ...

This one is dedicated to General Michael Flynn who gave the best 23 days of his life to the Trump Administration.
http://youtu.be/8IUIYwrMyiQ
I guess he is out like Flynn
Flynn was an intelligence expert who apparently never suspected that the FBI could be tapping the phone of the Russian Ambassador. Isn't that naïve for a man who spent the last 30 years of his life in the world of intelligence?
And how many foreign spies do you think are now working at Mar-a-Logo? Spies in the dining crew, spies in the housekeeping staff, you probably can't swing the nuclear football without hitting a spy.
All I can say is that Hanlon's razor is looking very bloody these days.

Does Trump have conflicts of interest in Mali? If so, they'll be fine.

Anyway, that's great music.

This is another song that could be on the hit list, by They Might Be

You'd never know it. I took my MIL to see him two years ago (yeah, I
couldn't find anyone my own age to go with me). He was amazing. And
hilarious.

So, I'm taking her again, this time also accompanied by my husband and my
SIL.

I hadn't heard that, thanks.

This is another take on A Change is Gonna Come by Aretha Franklin:



Her take begins "There's an old friend that I once heard say/ Something
that touched my heart / And it began this way..."

I heard an interview with her on Fresh Air and she talked about how she
had known Cooke when she was growing up -- Cooke started out as a gospel
singer and stayed at her house because her father was one of the best
known ministers in Detroit and his church was an important stop on the
gospel circuit.

gospel circuit.
Had not heard Aretha's version. Everything she does is stunning. Thanks.

Back in the 1950s when Sam Cooke sang lead for the Soul Stirrers he was the biggest name in black gospel music. At that time there was a strict separation of gospel musicians from secular musicians in the black community. When he crossed over to pop he drew the ire of every gospel music lover hurt that he turned his back on the Lord for money.

He became the first soul singer. Before Al Green, before Aretha, before Gladys Knight, there was Sam Cooke singing pop songs the way he sang in church on Sunday.

This is my favorite from his Soul Stirrer period. Love his enunciation.

Jesus Gave Me Water


I love black gospel: Marian Anderson, Fisk Jubilee Singers, the Quartets, Aretha, all of it.

I have a gospel song that is a guilty pleasure. Musically, it is, well, bad. The piano is out of tune. The recording is poor quality. The choir is all over the place. But one thing that music can do is convey a feeling and on that score this is tremendous. The choir literally gets to the end of the song and can't stop singing.

Said I Wasn't Gonna Tell Nobody
by The Gospel Choir for The Abyssinian Baptist Church of Newark, New Jersey



You can all laugh at me now.

That's great.

I'll occasionally wander through Youtube looking for music and come
across amateur versions which I'll listen to. Often they're awful, but
it's not uncommon to come across choirs, high school bands, etc. who are
far more fun and interesting to hear than professionally recorded studio
music.

I was curious if there was any connection between the Mekons and the
Monkees. There doesn't appear to be, but the Mekons pop up in the
Wikipedia article on the Infinite Monkey Theorem in Popular Culture:

The debut album by Leeds punk rock band the Mekons is called
The Quality of Mercy Is Not Strnen (1979). Originally released
on Virgin Records in the United Kingdom, its cover features a
photo, not of a monkey, but of a typing chimpanzee. The title
refers to a Shakespeare quote from The Merchant of Venice:
"The quality of mercy is not strain'd"

Your friend Ralph and buddy Shai doing the complete Ludwig chill+panner works.
And this is the second part of a 2-part series.
I'm hoping the interview will show up as podcast,
and then you can insert the tracks of their recording as needed.

(12 Var's on Wolfie's Magic Flute song is one track, and Op 69 another)

(the bit after the intro is even better than the intro,
not sure if means 1st or 2nd theme),
Prokofiev, and Walton.
Missed the bon bon from Holst,
and all of the Ludwig Op 102 #2
(errands, which included talking to people,
so earbuds weren't practical tonight).

This may show up as a podcast,
but more likely will be used for one or two episodes of
/The Record Shelf/.

Not wishing to diss Jackie Wilson but I wish he hadn't been quite such a
strong influence on Van Morrison.

All of his stuff? I think he's done a lot of moody mopey flushable
music, and he's evidently a pretty surly guy. And there was the
Scientology stuff, to be sure. But some of his songs are great, I'd
say.

Still not getting Chuck Berry out of my head. I didn't know that these were
his when I first heard them, back before my age began with a crooked
number...

No, they are Canids (family), but not Canis (genus) , they are Nyctereutes.

When you listen to music as much as I do, it can get you through tough times or it can be the tough times.

Two weeks ago I pulled in a record paycheck. I figured it would be a great time to celebrate. But looking over my friends list I couldn't think of anyone, at least not anyone who hasn't already blown me off, stood me up or just ignored me. Not to mention it would be really tacky to brag about how much I made even though I have been wanting to "celebrate" for some time anyway. And I refusal to smoke marijuana and drink alcohol has had a continuing devastating effect on my social life.

So instead I saw the Meat Puppies, who I loathe, on a ticket I paid for and could have tripled my money on because a friend I see all the time really needed there for reasons I won't go into here.

I hated every minute of it, and all I could think about was how much I needed to go to the post office.
