Life accordion to Trump

January 19, 2017

No typo.

It’s a Finnish accordion, I think. And if Trump plans to use it, he should know the Finns are prepared to squeeze back.

January 19 birthday olla podrida, 2017

January 19, 2017

Pick your cause for celebration — interesting list of birthday people for January 19:

Seems odd to me to think of Dolly Parton as younger than Janis Joplin, or the same age as Linda Ronstadt.  But Parton was a star by the age of 14.

Irritates me still that Baltimore hasn’t figured out a good way to fund the Edgar Allan Poe House there (National Park Service maintains Poe’s Philadelphia home). Enough funding came in to keep the Baltimore house open on weekends, in 2014. In a city with an NFL team named after his most famous poem,  could they just pass a hat at a couple of games, asking each fan to throw in $1.00?  Or pass the hat in the Ravens locker room?

Who else did we miss on birthday wishes today?
