Humans of New York: Hilary Clinton
"I'm not Barack Obama. I'm not Bill Clinton. Both of them carry themselves with a naturalness that is very appealing to audiences. But I'm married to one and I've worked for the other, so I know how hard they work at being natural."
Andrew Tobias: Steady as She Goes
Hillary is one tough cookie. Can you imagine all the traveling she's done and speeches she's given - with pneumonia? I spoke for four minutes at the same event she keynoted Friday night - having done nothing much the two or three days before - and was pretty well shot for the rest of the weekend.
Michael Anderegg: "Chimes at Midnight: Falstaff Roars" (Criterion)
When we consider the indignities Chimes at Midnight has suffered over the years-released in the U.S. in 1967 to a dismissive New York Times review, dropping out of sight for long stretches of time because of uncertainties over rights, emerging sporadically in pirated versions made from beat-up 16 mm prints and almost always in the wrong aspect ratio-it is remarkable that Orson Welles's film has come to be properly appreciated as the undoubted masterpiece it is, worthy to stand next to Citizen Kane (1941), and even in some ways surpassing it.
DJ Useo responded:
They drink tomato juice. I can't stand the stuff. Love me a BLT. Tomatoes on a salad, I say yes!
But when I reach for something to juice, it sure ain't a tomato! Lol!
Still, I'm surprised soft drinks don't come in that flavor!
Running late today - walked the dogs 4 miles, worked in the back yard a couple hours, worked on a transaction, went to the gym with my husband and walked miles and ran ½ mile (first run in 9 wks., when I acquired my tibial stress fracture), then did a weight-conditioning class.
The official beverage of Ohio is tomato juice.
Happy Birthday, Bart. You are indeed sorely missed.
Joe S answered:
Tomato juice. Rather bland for a "beverage" in my opinion, unless a bit of habanero sauce is added to it. But that's Ohio for you. If you research it, you will find that Michigan doesn't have an "official" state beverage. That's because everyone know it's beer. Every local celebration in Michigan is an excuse to serve beer. There is always a "beer tent" at every occasion. Here in Manistee we have things such as "Hops and Props," which translates to beer and boats. And at Halloween there's "Boos, Beers, and Brats." And every other week there is a fishing tournament with, you guessed it, a beer tent. Some folks put a little tomato juice in their beer.

Miriam Thompson, 79, sits on a bench Monday, Sept. 12, 2016, in Raleigh, N.C., during a Moral Monday protest. She's from Chapel Hill and she has attended almost every protest. A movement that began more than three years ago about conservative policies in North Carolina has grown into an event that will be held in 30 states and Washington, D.C., to promote what supporters call a "moral public policy framework." The Rev. William Barber will lead the protest on Monday at the North Carolina Capitol in Raleigh.

Mikey Day, a writer on the show since 2013, will transition to on-camera talent this season, the late-night institution's 42nd.
Also joining the cast are Alex Moffat and Melissa Villasenor. All three will be featured players making their debuts on the Oct. 1 premiere.
Day, 36, is a member of the Groundlings, the famed L.A. comedy troupe and talent incubator that has produced such SNL all-stars as Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig.
Villasenor is a Los Angeles-based comedian. She was a top 16 finalist on Season 6 of America's Got Talent. Moffat hails from Chicago, where he taught teen improv at The Second City.
The new hires and promotions follow a round of behind-the-scenes bloodshed at the famed Studio 8H. This time around, the cast cuts were more shocking than usual, as Michaels chose not to renew the contracts of two of the show's heavy-lifters - Taran Killam and Jay Pharoah.

Dolphins can carry on conversations in an advanced spoken language made up of pulses and whistles, a new study has found.
While marine biologists have long understood that dolphins communicate within their pods, the new research, which was conducted on two captive dolphins, is the first to link isolated signals to particular dolphins. The findings reveal that dolphins can string together "sentences" using a handful of "words."
"Essentially, this exchange of [pulses] resembles a conversation between two people," Vyacheslav Ryabov, the study's lead researcher, told Mashable.
"The dolphins took turns in producing 'sentences' and did not interrupt each other, which gives reason to believe that each of the dolphins listened to the other's pulses before producing its own," he said in an email.
The study was published Aug. 21 in Physics and Mathematics, a journal of St. Petersburg Polytechnic University in Russia.
The fate of pioneering pilot Amelia Earhart has remained a mystery for decades.
After achieving worldwide fame by becoming the first female pilot to fly solo across the Atlantic, Earhart vanished along with her navigator, Fred Noonan, over the Pacific Ocean on 2 July 1937.
Generations of aviation experts and conspiracy theorists have speculated about what happened to the flight, with some claiming the pair were really spies who crash-landed on to a Japanese island where they were captured and executed. US government officials concluded they crashed into the sea and were killed.

Explorers have found the wreck of HMS Terror, the second of two British ships lost in the disastrous 1845 Franklin expedition to Canada's Arctic Northwest Passage, Britain's Guardian newspaper said on Monday.
The Arctic Research Foundation, a private group that sent a vessel to help look for the ship, found it in pristine condition at the bottom of a bay earlier this month, a spokesman told the paper.
Sir John Franklin and his 128-member crew in the Terror and HMS Erebus all died after the vessels became stuck in ice during a search for the fabled Arctic passage between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.
The fate of the ships remained one of the great mysteries in Canadian history for almost 170 years until a team found the wreck of the Erebus in September 2014.
The NCAA has pulled seven championship events from North Carolina, including opening-weekend men's basketball tournament games, for the coming year due to a state law that some say can lead to discrimination against LGBT people.
In a news release Monday, the NCAA says the decision by its board of governors came "because of the cumulative actions taken by the state concerning civil rights protections."
"This decision is consistent with the NCAA's long-standing core values of inclusion, student-athlete well-being and creating a culture of fairness," said Georgia Tech President G.P. "Bud" Peterson, the chair of the board of governors.
The law - known as HB2 - requires transgender people to use restrooms at schools and government buildings corresponding to the sex on their birth certificates. It also excludes gender identity and sexual orientation from local and statewide antidiscrimination protections.
HB2 was signed into law by Republican Gov. Pat McCrory earlier this year. A spokesman with McCrory's office couldn't immediately be reached for comment Monday evening, but a spokeswoman with the state Republican party blasted the decision in statement, saying it is "so absurd it's almost comical."
Federal officials announced plans Monday to sharply reduce the territory of the world's only wild population of red wolves - a move that conservationists say will relegate the endangered animals to zoos.
Starting in late 2017 the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service plans to limit wild red wolves to a federal wildlife refuge and some adjacent land in eastern North Carolina's Dare County, rather than the five-county area where they currently roam.
Wolves that stray beyond those boundaries would be captured and placed in a captive breeding program, said Leopoldo Miranda, an assistant regional director for the wildlife service. The new plan is contingent on modifying current program rules after a public comment period.
Federal officials had been considering whether to continue, modify or abandon the program after a lengthy review and complaints from some landowners that the wolves cause problems when they stray onto private land.
They also said Monday that the wild population of wolves has dwindled to about 45, less than half its post-reintroduction peak.

On the campaign trail, Donald Trump (R-Grifter) has touted his political contributions as a form of business savviness, boasting that he has "given to everybody" for favors in return.
But when it comes to his own charity -- The Donald J. Trump Foundation -- the Republican presidential nominee has not donated any money since his last contribution in 2008.
A review of the Trump Foundation's tax records by CNN finds that although the charity has received more than $4 million in contributions from other organizations and individuals and in turn donated millions to various charitable causes since 2009, Trump has not made any personal contributions to the foundation in that time.
The charity appears to have functioned in recent years as a conduit that disburses money donated by third-parties, such as World Wrestling Entertainment, which donated $1 million in 2009, and $500,000 in 2012 from NBC Universal, the company that contracted Trump's show "The Apprentice."
Philanthropy experts describe the practice as irregular since private family foundations traditionally fund charitable causes at least in part through their founder's personal wealth.

In 2007, Cristin Kearns was a general manager at Kaiser Permanente, where she ran a large group of dental practices. She was working with medical doctors at Kaiser to figure out ways they could provide better care for patients with diabetes, who are more likely to have gum disease. The work took her to a conference in Seattle focused on the links between the two diseases. As she watched the talks, attended the panel discussions, and read the materials handed out, she was struck by one thing: No one seemed to be talking about sugar. Even a pamphlet intended for diabetic dental patients didn't suggest cutting back on sugar.
"I had this experience, which I found to be very strange, and I was wondering whether the sugar industry had an influence" on what was included in those patient materials, Kearns said in an interview. So she started digging. "I had a full-time job-research journalism wasn't part of my job. I just was Googling at night after work."
Today, as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of California, San Francisco, Kearns is publishing research based on the documents that her casual Googling led to: a trove of confidential documents, correspondence, and other materials that detail the relationship between the sugar industry and medical researchers in the 1960s and '70s that UCSF has taken to calling the "Sugar Papers."
Last year, she and her colleagues revealed that the sugar industry worked with the National Institutes of Health during those years to create a federal program to combat tooth decay in children that did not recommend limiting sugar consumption. On Monday, in a paper published in The Journal of the American Medical Association, Kearns details how in the 1960s, the leading sugar industry trade group paid three Harvard researchers nearly $50,000 in today's dollars to publish a literature review that would link fat and cholesterol-and not sugar-to increased risk of heart disease.
The Sugar Research Foundation, which is now called the Sugar Association, "set the review's objective, contributed articles for inclusion, and received drafts," according to the paper. When the New England Journal of Medicine published the two-part review in 1967, the foundation's funding and involvement was not disclosed.
U.S. Sen. Tim Scott, the first black U.S. senator from the deep South since Reconstruction, is proposing that the site where the Civil War began be raised in status to that of a national park.
The Republican lawmaker has introduced a bill creating the Fort Sumter and Fort Moultrie National Park as the nation's 60th national park and second in South Carolina.
Fort Sumter, on Charleston Harbor, was bombarded by Confederate guns on April 12, 1861, in a fight that started four years of civil war.
Moultrie, located on nearby Sullivans Island, is where American patriots turned back a British fleet trying to capture Charleston days before the signing of the Declaration of Independence.
Scott says a national park designation will give the forts a higher profile among the array of other national park properties and should mean more visitors to sites that now draw about 1 million visitors a year.
