How to lose yur marbles....and some Fair and Balanced reportage...

Well Sir...but first, a letter frum my old jarhead buddy Clint Griffin frum out San Diego way;

"Now here is a trip down memories lane. The lady with me in this photo is Edith Shain. Back on 14 Aug 1945, at the end off WW II a sailor grabbed hold of a young nurse in New York's Time Square and to her surprise planted a kiss on her that has been seen in that famous photo that I am sure you have seen several time over the years since that day.

She is now over 90 & can still dance up a storm. Just thought you might like to see this pix & to let you all see what a dull life I live out here.




Headlines On This Date 4 Years Ago:

"Republicans spending $42 million on inauguration while troops Die in unarmored Humvees"
"Bush extravagance exceeds any reason during tough economic times"
"Fat cats get their $42 million inauguration party, Ordinary Americans get the shaft"

"Historic Obama Inauguration will cost only $120 million"
"Obama Spends $120 million on inauguration; America Needs A Big Party"
"Everyman Obama shows America how to celebrate"

Nothing like fair & unbiased coverage of the news !!!
