Josh Marshall: Thoughts on the Disappointing Result Out of Georgia 6 (TPM)
This is a big disappointment. But remember, by any objective measure these races show a Democratic party resurgent and a GOP on the ropes. These seats came open because they were vacated by people Trump picked for cabinet appointments. They got those picks because they came from safe seats. They are by no means a cross section of House seats. The thing to do is learn what we can from coming up just short and move on to the next fight. No one should expect any of this to be easy. If you do, bow out of civic questions and just watch movies and TV. We need people with more endurance.
Eddie Deezen: The Love Life of W.C. Fields (Neatorama)
W.C. Fields is a comic icon in movie history. Critics rank him with Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton and the Marx Brothers in the upper echelons of motion picture comedy. His classic movies include Million Dollar Legs (1932), Tillie and Gus (1933), The Bank Dick (1940), My Little Chickadee (with Mae West) (1940) and Never Give a Sucker an Even Break (1941). W.C. Fields spent much of his boyhood in poverty and as an adult was constantly in fear of being broke. As a result, his girlfriends found him a tight man with a dollar.
Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In (often simply referred to as Laugh-In) is an American sketch comedy television program that ran for 140 episodes from January 22, 1968, to March 12, 1973, on the NBC television network. It was hosted by comedians Dan Rowan and Dick Martin. Laugh-In originally aired as a one-time special on September 9, 1967, and was such a success that it was brought back as a series, replacing The Man from U.N.C.L.E. on Mondays at 8 pm (ET).

Very interesting! Here come da Judge! Your example and my two are from the fast paced NBC comedy revue, Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In.
One of my favorite shows - Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In. That's where Goldie Hawn and Lily Tomlin, among others, kick-started their careers.
We changed cable providers yesterday, and the package we purchased has a security system. I'm already over the stupid noises it makes when you open and close doors. I may send it back (I have 2 more days). It's almost as annoying as the stupid, oppressive heat.

In regard to the phrase, "You Bet Your Sweet Bippy", I would have heard that on "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In".
Come to think of it, Richard Nixon appeared on the show and asked, "Sock It To Me?".

In an effort to teach Donald Trump about the importance of HIV/AIDS research, "The Late Late Show" host James Corden has sent 297 copies of the 1994 Oscar-winning, Tom Hanks-starring movie about a man with AIDS, "Philadelphia," to the president.
Corden said he sent the DVDs to Trump in reaction to the recent news that six members of the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS have resigned because, in their view, Trump "simply does not care" about the HIV epidemic.
The "Late Late Show" host admitted that until he saw the acclaimed, tragic movie from the late director Jonathan Demme, he was unaware of the impact of HIV/AIDS.
"I was thinking, maybe that's the problem. Maybe Donald Trump doesn't care because he's never seen 'Philadelphia,'" Corden said. "In fact, I'm almost certain that's probably what it is."
After the White House rebuffed Corden's proposal to send one copy of "Philadelphia" to Trump, Corden and his staff decided to buy up every DVD of the film they could find online - 297 copies - and send them to Trump's Florida estate Mar-a-Lago.
Even though she has no more plans to extend the highly successful "Harry Potter" novels, author J.K. Rowling is not yet through dishing out information about the wizarding world.
The most recent bombshell the author dropped on Pottermore was that Harry Potter, the famed boy who lived, is not the first Harry Potter in the wizarding world, according to Seventeen. In fact, his great grandfather also shared his name. This great grandfather was born Henry Potter, but his friends all called him Harry.
The two Harrys have a lot in common, since they are not afraid to stand up for the things they believe in. The late Harry actually made news after he publicly condemned the then Minister for Magic, Archer Evermonde, for forbidding the magical community to help Muggles during the First World War.
Due to his outspoken views in support of Muggles, or non-magical folk, the Potters were excluded from the Sacred Twenty-Eight - the 28 British families that were still "truly pure-blood" by the 1930s.
A Cartier wristwatch given to Jackie Kennedy and a painting she made in 1963 as a thank-you gift to reciprocate sold for $379,500 on Wednesday, more than three times pre-sale estimates, Christie's auction house said.
Christie's said the price was reached after three minutes of "spirited bidding" in its New York saleroom, online and by phone. It did not identify the buyer.
The auction house had estimated the watch and the painting, sold as one lot, would fetch up to $120,000, calling them "two of the most important historic artifacts to surface in recent years from the golden era of the Kennedy Presidency."
The Cartier tank watch, engraved on the back, was given to the then-U.S. first lady by her brother-in-law Prince Stanislaw "Stas" Radziwill, and she was photographed many times wearing it.
Most of Jacqueline Kennedy's personal belongings were auctioned in 1996 following her death from cancer in 1994 at age 64. The 1996 auction at Sotheby's in New York raised some $34 million, more than seven times pre-sale expectations.
Global liquor behemoth Diageo said Wednesday it will pay up to $1 billion to buy a tequila brand co-founded by movie star George Clooney.
Clooney founded the Casamigos brand four years ago with partners Rande Gerber and Mike Meldma.
Diageo said it will pay $700 million for Casamigos at first, and then pay another $300 million over 10 years if the brand reaches certain performance milestones.
London-based Diageo's other brands include Johnnie Walker, Guinness and Captain Morgan.
Clooney and Gerber, an entrepreneur who is married to model Cindy Crawford, have appeared in ads for the brand. Diageo says the founders will continue to promote Casamigos and have a say in its future.
A notorious Chinese dog meat festival opened on Wednesday with sellers torching the hair off carcasses, butchers chopping slabs of canines and cooks frying up dishes, dispelling rumours that authorities would ban sales this year.
After earlier reports of a sales ban at the summer solstice event in the southern city of Yulin, animal rights groups said vendors and officials reached a compromise and set a limit of two dogs on display per stall.
But multiple carcasses rested on several stalls at two markets, with stiff pointy tails, leathery yellow skin, eyes shut and bared teeth as if in a final growl.
Crowds of umbrella-toting festivalgoers braved the rain to stand in line outside popular restaurants, but animal welfare groups said sales appeared to be down this year.
There was a heavy police presence outside the market and at all intersections but officers did not seem to be checking stalls.
The Wall Street Journal on Wednesday fired its highly regarded chief foreign affairs correspondent after evidence emerged of his involvement in prospective commercial deals - including one involving arms sales to foreign governments - with an international businessman who was one of his key sources.
The reporter, Jay Solomon, was offered a 10 percent stake in a fledgling company, Denx LLC, by Farhad Azima, an Iranian-born aviation magnate who has ferried weapons for the CIA. It was not clear whether Solomon ever received money or formally accepted a stake in the company.
Azima was the subject of an AP investigative article published Tuesday. During the course of its investigation, the AP obtained emails and text messages between Azima and Solomon, as well as an operating agreement for Denx dated March 2015, which listed an apparent stake for Solomon.
Two other Denx partners - ex-CIA employees Gary Bernsten and Scott Modell - told the AP that Solomon was involved in discussing proposed deals with Azima at the same time he continued to cultivate the businessman as a source for his stories for the Journal. Bernsten and Modell said Solomon withdrew from the venture shortly after business efforts began and that the venture never added up to much. They provided no evidence as to when Solomon withdrew.
The emails show Solomon's relationship with Azima began professionally, as the reporter cultivated the businessman as a source of information about Iranian money in a Georgian hotel deal and other matters. A review of Solomon's published work over the past four years indicated Azima never appeared by name in the newspaper.
In a hidden room in a house near Argentina's capital, police believe they have found the biggest collection of Nazi artifacts in the country's history, including a bust relief of Adolf Hitler and magnifying glasses inside elegant boxes with swastikas.
Some 75 objects were found in a collector's home in Beccar, a suburb north of Buenos Aires, and authorities say they suspect they are originals that belonged to high-ranking Nazis in Germany during World War II.
Police say one of the most-compelling pieces of evidence of the historical importance of the find is a photo negative of Hitler holding a magnifying glass similar to those found in the boxes.
The main hypothesis among investigators and member of Argentina's Jewish community is that they were brought to Argentina by a high-ranking Nazi or Nazis after World War II, when the South American country became a refuge for fleeing war criminals, including some of the best known.

U.S. motorcycle maker Harley-Davidson is lining up a takeover bid for Italian rival Ducati, potentially bringing together two of the most famous names in motorcycling in a deal that could be worth up to 1.5 billion euros ($1.67 billion), sources told Reuters.
Indian motorcycle maker Bajaj Auto and several buyout funds are also preparing bids for Ducati, which is being put up for sale by German carmaker Volkswagen .
Milwaukee-based Harley-Davidson has hired Goldman Sachs to work on the deal, one source familiar with the matter said, adding tentative bids are expected in July.
Volkswagen, whose Audi division controls Ducati - maker of the iconic Monster motorbike - is working with investment boutique Evercore on the sale which will help it fund a strategic overhaul following its emissions scandal.
Based in the northern Italian city of Bologna, Ducati is on the wish list of private equity funds KKR , Bain Capital and Permira, which are all working on the deal, said the sources who declined to be identified as the process is private.
