Paul Krugman: The Obama Boom (NY Times)
… the Obama economy offers a powerful lesson in the here and now. From a conservative point of view, Mr. Obama did everything wrong, afflicting the comfortable (slightly) and comforting the afflicted (a lot), and nothing bad happened. We can, it turns out, make our society better after all.

Scott Burns: What Readers Say About Increasing Social Security (AssetBuilder)
The bottom line is that Social Security has very wide support from working Americans. They are more inclined to expand it than shrink it. And increasing our trust in Social Security might be the best thing members of both parties could do to recover some (just some) of the trust voters once had in them.

Lucy Kalanithi: My Marriage Didn't End When I Became a Widow (NY Times)
When my husband died from cancer last March at age 37, I was so grief-stricken I could barely sleep. One afternoon, I visited his grave - in a field high in the Santa Cruz Mountains, overlooking the Pacific Ocean - and lay on top of it. I slept more soundly than I had in weeks. It wasn't the vista that calmed my restless body; it was Paul, just there, under the earth.

Trivia Question from Yesterday

On the cartoon series The Jetsons, what is the name of George's boss?

       Cosmo G. Spacely                                                      Source

The Jetsons is an American animated sitcom produced by Hanna-Barbera, originally airing in primetime from September 23, 1962 to September 22, 1963, then later on syndicated in September 1967 and with new episodes from 1985 to 1988 as part of The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera block. It was Hanna-Barbera's Space Age counterpart to The Flintstones.

George Jetson's workweek is typical of his era: an hour a day, two days a week His Longtime boss is Cosmo G. Spacely, the bombastic owner of Spacely Space Sprockets.        Source

Lois Of The Wage Slaves replied:
   Ah, the delightful Mr. Spacely, timeless template of the typical "boss"; cold, cruel, avaricious asshole. Maybe there IS something to stereotypes?

Deborah responded:
   George Jetson's boss was Cosmo Spacely, owner of Spacely's Sprockets. I was a kid, highly entertained by that show.
  A word of advice on fitness: if you want an ab workout, get this crud - the coughing will strengthen you like nobody's business.

DJ Useo answered:
   His name is Cosmo Spacely! A very funny cartoon character, imho.
  I actually was given a set of the Jetsons for Christmas, cast in pvc. Anyone who saw them laughed!

  Thanks for the note about Johnny Carson Tonight Shows being rerun. We love watching them.
  I saw one the other day & Johnny had on a juggler. So, the guy was really funny.

  You don't see jugglers, or much of anyone aside from celebrities on those shows nowadays.
  His shows remain very watchable, I say.
  After returning home to our flooded apartment, we were gifted a new bed.
  Sadly, a friend who stored the bed temporarily till we were ready, now refuses to give it back.
  They aren't even using it! Complete madness of the highest order. Sigh!
  Perhaps I transgressed the "unwritten law"?!

   Cosmo G. Spacely. I looked it up, I had no idea. I can't remember ever watching the show. I guess it didn't appeal to me. If I see pictures of the characters I recognize them as being from that strange futuristic cartoon show, but I couldn't give you any names.

Pays Tribute To Bowie From Space

Astronaut Tim Peake

Messages of condolence for the late rock star flowed in Monday from around the world - and from space, where British astronaut Tim Peake tweeted from the International Space Station.

The outer-space tribute seemed fitting. Unique and otherworldly, Bowie often seemed like a creature from another planet, the "Starman" of one of his 1970s hits.

The cosmos fascinated him from his first big hit, "Space Oddity." Released in 1969, the year of the first moon landing, it told the story of Major Tom, an astronaut adrift, "sitting in my tin can, far above the world."

The song caught the world's imagination again in 2013 when Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield strummed it on his guitar while orbiting Earth aboard the space station. The video was viewed millions of times, and Bowie gave the rendition his seal of approval, calling it "the most poignant version of the song ever created."

Hadfield tweeted Monday: "Ashes to ashes, dust to stardust. Your brilliance inspired us all. Goodbye Starman."

Free Speech

Stolen Valor

A federal appeals court on Monday tossed out a veteran's conviction for wearing military medals he didn't earn, saying it was a form of free speech protected by the Constitution.

A specially convened 11-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the First Amendment allows people to wear unearned military honors.

Elven Joe Swisher of Idaho was convicted in 2007 of violating the Stolen Valor Act, which made it a misdemeanor to falsely claim military accomplishments. Resident George W. Bush signed it into law in 2006, but the U.S. Supreme Court struck it down in 2012 as a violation of free speech protections.

Investigators looked into Swisher's military claims after he testified at the 2005 trial of a man charged with soliciting the murder of a federal judge. Swisher wore a Purple Heart on the witness stand.

After the Stolen Valor Act was struck down, Congress passed a new law making it a crime to profit financially by lying about military service. President Barack Obama signed it in 2013.

To Marry Jerry Hall


Media mogul Rupert Murdoch will marry actress and former supermodel Jerry Hall, the couple announced in British newspaper The Times on Tuesday, after a four-month romance.

The couple got engaged over the weekend in Los Angeles, where they attended the 73rd Golden Globes awards gala.

Murdoch, the 84-year-old executive chairman of News Corporation, which owns The Times, announced the impending nuptials in the Births, Marriages and Deaths section of the newspaper.

"Mr Rupert Murdoch, father of Prudence, Elisabeth, Lachlan, James, Grace and Chloe Murdoch, and Miss Jerry Hall, mother of Elizabeth, James, Georgia and Gabriel Jagger, are delighted to announce their engagement," it read.

This will be Murdoch's fourth marriage and the second for 59-year-old Hall, an American, who tied the knot with Sir Mick Jagger in 1990 in a ceremony in Bali. When they divorced in 1999, Jagger claimed that they were not legally married.

Couple Struggles To Sell House

'Silence of the Lambs'

A Pennsylvania couple is struggling to sell a house used as the home of psychotic killer Buffalo Bill in the 1991 film "The Silence of the Lambs."

Scott and Barbara Lloyd listed the house last summer, but they've dropped the asking price from $300,000 to $250,000.

The three-story Victorian in Layton was the second-most clicked home on last year, but Scott Lloyd told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that the publicity has attracted curiosity seekers, but no serious buyers.

The home's location in a tiny village about an hour's drive southeast of Pittsburgh works against it. So does the fact that it has only one bathroom to go with its four bedrooms.

The foyer and dining room were depicted in the film, but no, there's no dungeon pit in the basement where the killer played by Ted Levine kept his victims before killing and skinning them. Those grisly scenes were filmed on a soundstage.

Accessed Government Files

Bundy Bunch

The leader of a small, armed group occupying a national wildlife refuge in southeastern Oregon said Monday he and his followers are going through government documents stored inside refuge buildings.

Ammon Bundy told reporters the documents will be used to "expose" how the government has discriminated local ranchers who use federal land for cattle grazing.

Bundy said the documents would also help secure the release of Steven and Dwight Hammond, two area ranchers convicted of arson who returned to prison last week to serve longer sentences. The Hammonds' case set off the occupation of the Burns-area refuge on Jan. 2.

Bundy said his group is not accessing government computers at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, including personnel files.

Retiring Elephants In May

Ringling Bros

The elephant acts that have been part of Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus shows for more than a century will end in May, earlier than their previously announced retirement, the circus' parent company said on Monday.

Last March, Feld Entertainment said the 13 Asian elephants used in its traveling shows would be phased out by 2018.

The company accelerated the retirement plan after concluding its 200-acre Center for Elephant Conservation in central Florida had enough barn space, water and waste disposal capacity to hold the 11 elephants still on tour, spokesman Stephen Payne said.

The circus has been targeted by animal welfare groups who accused it of mistreating the elephants, a key symbol of the spectacle billed as "The Greatest Show on Earth." Many local governments also have added regulations making it harder for the circus to tour with the animals.

Sentences Crew


An Indian court Monday sentenced 35 sailors, including several from Britain, Estonia and Ukraine, for illegally entering Indian waters carrying weapons aboard a US-operated anti-piracy boat in 2013.

A judge in India's southern state of Tamil Nadu ordered all 35 crew present in the court to serve five years in jail, the prosecutor in the case, S Chandrasekar told AFP.

India's coast guard intercepted the ship off the coast of Tuticorin in Tamil Nadu in October 2013 and arrested and charged the crew for failing to have the proper paperwork to carry weapons in Indian waters.

The captain, a Ukrainian, and another officer from Britain were refused bail and remained in prison.

US maritime security firm AdvanFort, which owns the Seaman Guard Ohio vessel, denies the charges against its crew, saying all firearms on board were legally purchased and properly documented.

Feud Grows

New Hampshire

Donald Trump (R-Wichser) continued his war of words with New Hampshire's largest newspaper Monday, a day after he claimed credit for ABC's decision to drop the paper as a co-sponsor of its upcoming Republican primary debate.

Trump's campaign and the Union Leader have been engaged in a mudslinging contest since the paper's publisher, Joseph McQuaid, wrote a series of front-page editorials criticizing Trump. In one, McQuaid called Trump a "crude blowhard." Trump, in turn, said the paper is failing and that McQuaid begged him to buy advertising space. At a campaign rally Monday, he read from an advertising letter sent to his campaign from the paper.

ABC is hosting a GOP debate in New Hampshire on Feb. 6. The network cited the ongoing feud between the Union Leader and Trump, as well as the paper's endorsement of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, as reasons for severing the partnership.

Trump has used his celebrity status and lead in many GOP polls to enforce control over the outlets that cover him. He has changed the paradigm for television news interviews, often calling in by telephone from home instead of traveling to studios to appear live. He has also blocked outlets he doesn't like from covering his events.

Lineup Cut

GOP Debate

Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul (R-Hair Piece) and former technology executive Carly Fiorina (R-Unemployable) will not appear on the primetime debate stage when the Republican Party's 2016 presidential class faces off later this week in South Carolina.

Debate host Fox Business Network announced the debate lineup Monday evening, dealing a blow to both candidates three weeks before Iowa's leadoff presidential caucuses. Just seven candidates - the smallest Republican group so far - will be featured in Thursday's 9 p.m. ET main event, based on criteria established by the network that relied on recent polls.

Real estate mogul Donald Trump (R-Pendejo), the leader in most recent polls, will again appear center stage in the debate. He'll be joined on stage by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Canada), Florida Gov. Marco Rubio (R-Thirsty), retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson (R-Malpractice), former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R-Not-The-Smart-One), New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R-Lap Band) and Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R-Sold).

Paul and Fiorina were invited to participate in a 6 p.m. ET "undercard" debate, although Paul said he would skip the second-tier faceoff.

Others invited to the undercard event include former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R-Sanctimonious) and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Religiously Insane).

GOP Debate



An undated photo provided by the Cincinnati Zoo shows their newborn penguin, named "Bowie." The zoo says the baby known as a blue or fairy penguin hatched at 6 a.m. Friday, Jan. 8, 2016, weighing 46 grams. Friday was both David Bowie's and Elvis Presley's birthday, and the zoo says there was a lot of support for the Elvis name. But the zoo already has a king penguin named for "the King," so "Bowie" was the choice for the new arrival.
