(8 am – promoted by ek hornbeck)
As I see a certain “friend” of mine is occupying the top spot, on this the day after his birthday, to which so many of us have been celebrating, his mere existence, in fact, and with absolutely no wish to intrude, pre-empt or diminish the importance of the latest episode of “Through the Darkest of Nights,” of which episodes, I am a great fan, I really feel a great need to give you all something to think about — on this terribly sad eve of Memorial Day.
First, I want to alert you all to a fact — I tried 5 times to post the following on www.johnconyers.com (I had successfully posted one just before this attempt). I received a pop-up message, as follows (was not able to copy), but wrote it down:
“Windows Internet Explorer

As I said, I attempted to diary the information listed below five times: sumting wong!
Gore Vidal, has always been, what I consider, possibly the most politically and historically astute of any personage that I am aware of. His perspicacity is, difficult, if not impossible, to argue with. And, despite the realities, he offers some humor in his overall assessment – a reference to Mr. McGoo, is priceless.
On the eve of this terribly sad Memorial Day, I hope each of you will nonetheless, take the time to listen to Gore Vidal in this two-part interview with him — truly take in his words, and truly think about them.
Hugs to all, of our needlessly sacrificing veterans and their families and hugs to all of us, who truly understand!
