Batman well hung!
DC Comics publishes Batman comic books. Under its DC Black Label, it recently published a new Batman comic book. A first edition.
I did not see the comic book. I read about it. Batman’s penis covered by his costume. However, easy to discern. Reported as admirable.
The comic book was immediately taken off the market when a furor arose. I suspect the penis exhibit was accidental. The result of an overzealous artist.
The comic book is destined to become a become a collector’s item. Inevitable.
DC Comics reported that it will publish a series of comic books involving comic book heroes aimed at a mature audience. Batman will return in his natural glory. Wonder Woman in hers.
A dinner party again last night at Andrea and Joe’s. I am beginning to like this! Two Julia Childs. Andrea and Donna got up early yesterday morning and grocery shopped. Then spent the day together cooking.
Everything good! Many tastes! I even had a huge pina colada. Joe enjoys them. The last time I had a pina colada was 6 years ago in Aruba. I would start at 10 in the morning. Get a new one every 2 hours while laying under a beach umbrella. Each with a double shot of rum.
David and Marilyn Taylor Key West friends no more. Irma bothered Marilyn. They sold their home and returned to Kentucky. David and I would watch basketball games together. David wrote also. He would share his writings with me.
David and Marilyn are on a trip. Presently, Prague. Prague is the capital and largest city in the Czech Republic. Many Key Westers visit. It has become the new playland for gays. David and Marilyn are not of such persuasion.
They are staying at the Prague Hilton. Eight hundred rooms. Every U.S. President since George 1 has stayed there. David’s sole complaint, no Chart Room.
The hotel is built on a river. The river has a tendency to flood. The builders/architects of the hotel came up with a unique idea for handling flood waters.
When a flood is anticipated, public rooms on the first 2 floors are flooded with fresh water. When the river rises, the water, sewage and debris cannot enter the hotel. The water inside equalizes that of the rising river. The damage resulting less, the clean up easier.
The concept was tested in 2002 when the river rose to its highest level ever. Everything worked as expected.
Washington governmental leaders have ceased to amaze. Nothing surprises me. Stupidity and delay common place.
Two recent examples.
Secretary of State Pompeo has his hands full with Iran, North Korea, Russia, the tariff wars, etc. Trump has never hired enough persons to work at State. Many jobs open. Understaffed.
Pompeo recently issued 2 memos. He is unhappy with how his people write. They use too many commas. He prefers the Oxford comma which uses less. Teaching manuals have been circulated. The command…..Write using the Oxford comma.
I never heard of the Oxford comma. Researched it. Per Pompeo, it does use fewer commas. However fewer lead to confusion.
Google the Oxford method and you will understand.
I cannot recall ever being taught correct comma usage. It is something I suspect we all picked up along the way. I am staying with my old and true.
U.S. Senators, especially Republican ones, are complaining. Russia and some other countries are hacking their personal e-mails.
We have known for 2 years Russia hacked us in the 2016 election. Trump keeps denying. No one in Washington has done anything to guard against a repeat. The Senators could easily have lead the battle. They sat on their hands and did nothing. Now the problem has hit home. Hope nothing embarrassing on their e-mails.
On this day in 1776, a 21 year old Captain in the Continental Army was executed for spying. Nathan Hale. We first learned of him in grammar school. His famous words, “I only regret that I have but one life to give for my country.”
Some historians say not so. No record made of the statement as Hale was being hung. Most disagree. They attribute the words to Hale.
Syracuse/Connecticut at 4 this afternoon. Syracuse a 27.5 point favorite. I will enjoy watching the game.
Next week the test! Syracuse plays Clemson.
Enjoy your day!
