Goodnight, moon

Put the first coat on the front steps today. That is, I prepared the surface of the front steps for some hours with a scraper, and then had a brief moment of pleasure laying on the paint.

Bob Geiger gives good snark

So, if the ABC 9/11 mockumentary trashing Clinton is running without ads, who's paying for it?

Just asking.

It's been a busy day for me; should I have checked the FAQ?
