here's a feel good story (although I guess only for humanists)

 A Newly Elected Missouri County Council Member Takes Oath on Dr. Seuss

Kelli Dunaway, single mother of 2 wanted her kids to walk away from her swearing-in with an empowering message. So instead of placing her hand on a Bible to take her oath of office, Kelli chose “Oh, The Places You’ll Go!” by Dr. Seuss.

I still love this . . . but then, again, I am gay and I like cats.

just heard Alex Trebek has beaten stage 4 pancreatic cancer. I’ll take “Alex Trebek just showed cancer who the goddamn boss is” for $200.

I'll take, "A very, very, very, very rich man beat a disease, where poor people can't. "

"Who is Magic Johnson? . . . Alex?"

"Correct . . . You win the daily double standard."

so I don't doubt his money helped (also he's Canadian)...but the survival rates for that particular cancer...

so I'd say Alex was pretty damn lucky

I think you need to change your screen name to debbie downer

per da wikeez, the diagnosis was announced publicly in March of this year.  the actual discovery was probably some weeks, maybe even months, before... but Trebek hasn't survived his first year yet.  so let's not get too excited (or be too big of a downer) just yet.

I am not sure where to post this so I will post it here. I bought a parking lot ticket for a upcoming show and now I have decided to stay the night in DC instead, so is there a way to cancel the parking ticket or anything such as that?

Thanks.

Seeing, Thatguy's name . . . makes me smile, that I knew him in fleeting glances of attended show realities, and sad, that I never will again.   

Grateful, are you trying to say that I can give away my parking ticket, to Hot Chip?  How would, that work?
