    “What I will always remember,” Rosman wrote in 2008, “is as I was leaving that party … I was approached by another guest, an established author. He asked about the man I had been talking to. Sheepishly he told me he didn’t know that Obama was a guest at the party, and had asked him to fetch him a drink. In less than six years, Obama has gone from being mistaken for a waiter among the New York media elite, to the president-elect. What a country.”

    Another casualty of the stupid AP journos that made our AQ informant….sigh……..

    The new bomb was obtained after an intelligence operation involving an informant who infiltrated Al Qaeda in Yemen and convinced the group that he would use the device to blow up an American airplane in 2011. The AP later learned details of the operation, a leak that is now the subject of a criminal investigation that led the Justice Department to seize AP phone records……“All of our explosive detection equipment wasn’t calibrated to detect that,” Pistole said. “And all of our 800 bomb-sniffing dogs had not been trained for that specific type.”

    “Obama’s unscripted comments were some of the most remarkable and admirable few minutes of his presidency. He spoke carefully, but with great passion and clarity. He spoke explicitly as a black man, but also as an American president. He said the “unsayable” so wisely and subtly that he made it accessible, and to me, indisputably clear and correct……….But today, talking about Martin, Obama embodied the kind of grace that is well-restrained passion. You knew how smart Obama was listening to him, as is often the case, but also how wise.”

    Happy Birthday, LL!!!!! Enjoy the sumptuous cake Ms Chips prepared for you 🙂

  11. July 19, 2013 at 11:15 pm

    Ok, you guys are gonna make me tear up! Thank you Chips, thank you all.

    I just got back from dinner with my bff. For all my L.A. peeps, do try Jackson’s Food & Drink in El Segundo. Quite yummy. We ended dinner with a warm upside down blackberry pie and way too much coffee. I’m both wired and exhausted.

    Happy birthday LL. Love those crabs…they make great husbands and chefs.

    Have just over 1/2 of an hour (east coast time time) to say : Happy Birthday LL!!!! May you have a long and happy life full of meaning & exceeding your dreams.

    By the way, do not pull the same stuff as that famous Seinfeld episode – “return” the overdue book

    • July 19, 2013 at 11:34 pm

      The funny thing is that my system DOES have library police. Not to track down books, of course, but when a building gets vandalized or we have to make sure a troublesome patron doesn’t return.

    Gee! Thanks Dianne! Btw- in case Dianne hasn’t noticed its not going to stop the media and the GOP to trying to tie this to the WH. They do it on everything.
    Senators are Free agents!

    Ok, dare I ask what Sirota and Salon did now? Just glancing at my TL and people seem a bit peeved.

            Oops – I missed capitalizing my second “He” in that sentence. Am I going to hell? (Raised on Catholic guilt – can you tell?) (Sorry, God.)

    This is lovely:

  25. July 19, 2013 at 11:59 pm

    Ok everyone, my stomach has settled down enough so that I can lay in bed and drift to sleep.

    Really, thank you everyone for your warm birthday wishes. Thank you Chips for being you. You all know how to make a guy feel loved.

    This is the year a couple of writing projects get finished and, hopefully, on the way to getting published. And then next year we have to kick the GOP into the gutter where it belongs. 2014 WILL NOT BE 2010! Trayvon and the women of Texas and the immigrants who’ve toiled in fear deserve their struggles and memories to be honored.

    See everyone tomorrow.

      HZ – I may “borrow” your “remind you of all of the happy moments that have accompanied you thus far” for future use! Poetic. Hope you are doing well tonight.

        Hi jacquelineoboomer. You may use anything that you so desire, my special one. Oh, I just noticed I did not used the correct tense. Thanks so much jacquelineoboomer. “accompanied.’ We are one beautiful family. ((((( Luv you, jacquelineoboomer.)))))HZ

          Used to be an editor, and now I’m a “silent editor,” don’t even know I’m doing it, but no changes were really required to your lovely poetic note for LL! Please forgive me.

          Luv you back!

    My wife has been very into cake decorating for a while now. She’s sells one every now and again and she’s got some regular customers. Mostly she just keeps trying out new techniques and getting better at it. I love to cook. She loves to bake and decorate cakes and cupcakes. Eventually we may take a crack at our own business. For now, she keeps practicing. As I type this she is preparing a cake for a team builder that I have at work tomorrow. It’s cute. She’s gonna wrap it in fondant and top it with these little figurines of people in clean room suits (I work in a microprocessor factory).

    I’ll show her the book cake (which is very cute, btw). Maybe she’ll take a crack at one of her own soon.

    Oh, and Happy Birthday LL!!!!
