    This Ends Badly? I think that's already being used.

    Say What?: Commercials That Made Us Scratch Our Heads

    There was a bank Washington Mutual which had branches on every corner. They did sort of the same thing, they didn't have windows or counters. The bankers stood at kiosks. My boss wanted the Ref. Librarians to emulate this and get rid of the desk. Then the Great Recession came and WaMu disappeared, bought out by a real bank. If I go to a bank I want to give my money to somebody behind a window or counter, with a big honking safe behind them, not some random person standing around. I won't even use the drive-up.

    I think he knows if he publicly testifies that the GOP and their media attack dogs will hound him for the rest of his life. (I think that's why Comey released that statement about Hillary but didn't mention the investigation into Trump. He figured Clinton would win anyway, but he'd have to put up with years of biased Congressional hearings.) Fundamentally it's cowardice.

    He's also working up a salute to Swedish Death Metal followed by his band putting out an Einstürzende Neubauten cover album.

    Joe and Mika Know Their Value: The Hosts Thread

    The Book's sneaking up in the polls Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #5,551 in Books (See Top 100 in Books) #23 in Political Corruption & Misconduct #46 in Political Commentary & Opinion #30 in Russian & Former Soviet Union Politics
  7. One of yesterday's "Route 66" episodes featured a dark-haired Robert Redford as a young Polish-American student accused of killing his girlfriend. Redford lost the Tod Stiles role in the show to Martin Milner. (We could have had Paul Newman and Martin Milner in "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.")

    Strudel-Boy and Cawowine: Irritating Kids in Commercials

    Don't blame the kids, blame the adults who made the ad. It was discussed earlier that Kars 4 Kids benefits some fundamentalist Jewish organization that's kind of sketchy (starting with the ad). But I hate having to hear that song over and over.

    But he didn't name a post office after a deceased intern.

    I was in Rome when Joe visited the Pope. They were up on the balcony of the Vatican together and an elderly Italian gentleman asked me, "Who's that up there with Joe?"

  13. Two good episodes last night from Season 2. Ethel Waters as a dying jazz singer who wants to band back together and gets Tod and Buz to help her (also in the episode jazz great Coleman Hawkins plays "Snooze"). The second has Robert Duvall as a heroin addict who Tod tries to get to go cold turkey.

    The whole show, every day, has turned into a shameless plug for their books, music, etc.
