Class outfit GQ is.
Apparently Yoda is visiting us today. Promoting ‘Rogue One’ no doubt.
The Farce, strong it is.
May the Farce be with you.
You beat me to it!
The man who co-opted Edward R. Murrow’s sign-off “good night and good luck” has now embellished Dave Garroway’s “peace” sign-off.
And is the head of the resistance, safely hidden in his basement.
“We seek him here, we seek him there
Those Frenchies seek him everywhere!
Is he in heaven? Or is he in hell?
That demmed Elusive Pimpernel?”
… next, “courage”.
One of my favorites signoffs was from Brad Crandall, a talk show host in NYC. He also had a great voice, and narrated a lot of the hokum ‘documentaries’ from Sunn Classic Pictures. I’d quote his sign-off but it should be done verbatim and I’d prefer to nail that down first.
EtA: This is pretty close to what I remember (I edited it slightly to conform to what I think is correct);
There was a guy in the D-FW market in the early eighties who signed off. “God willing and if the Russians don’t drop the bomb, I’ll be back tomorrow.” Don’t remember his name.
Let us not forget, “Good night, Mrs. Calabash, wherever you are.”
OR a song, Larry:
?I’ll be seeing you, in all the old familiar places?
?When the moon comes over the mountain…?
?Good night. Good night. Until we meet again.?
Mein Führer, I can walk!

That’s a creep movie for the ages, NN.
That it is. And I can’t picture anyone but Nicholson in the role.
Dr. Henry J. Heimlich, the thoracic surgeon and medical maverick who developed and crusaded for his maneuver, died today at 96 while chocking on a chicken tender at a San Juan, Puerto Rico KFC. The staff, thinking he was pantomiming to order more, failed to come to his aid.
TODAY IN FAKE NEWS
FB labeled that as disputed by Univision.
If you go out in the woods today. You’re sure of a big surprise. If you go out in the woods today. You’d better go in disguise.
Bill’s a frequent visitor to Ye Olde Adult Shoppe in town.
I wish I were an elector so I could tell Martin Sheen to go screw himself. These people doing their pledged duty and are getting hate mail and death threats. You’d never know that by watching NBC NEWS though. Death threats first have to be cleared by The Southern Poverty Law Center to get a report from that crew.
Has this made a blip on Mr. Stelter’s radar?
He has had plenty of tweeters pointing out to him that every thing he feared from Trump supporters post a Trump loss has been the case and then some with Clinton supporters.
So far, no acknowledgement from Stelter of that fact.
Don’t expect it. He’s just another two-bit partisan.
“But this is stupid. Nobody is standing up and telling these people, ‘Enough, knock it off.’ ”
As with the rioting, you’d think the MSM would offer up some opprobrium.
Where is the Justice Department now? Where is the outrage about “voter intimidation” of the most consequential voters in the country?
MSNBC quietly cancels ‘Live With Thomas Roberts’
That story about Ronan Farrow showing up for work every day and being seen sitting at a desk in the background of the Roberts’ broadcast, seems more than a little sad.
Don’t feel too sad. NBC is giving him more to do on the TODAY show v
I’m glad to hear that.
Welcome back old friends Winston’s & Yardley Gift Sets!
Zsa Zsa has died at age 99. May she rest in peace and not slug any cops in Heaven.

1 From his basement, Olbermann citing nonexistent Eichenwald reports.
Olbermann reminds me of Frank Booth, but without the wit and charm. “Hello, neighbor.”
