Trivia Question from Yesterday

In December 1969, Peter, Paul and Mary had their only No. 1 single (as well as their final top 40 pop hit). What is the title of the song?

       Leaving On A Jet Plane                                                      Source

Peter, Paul and Mary were an American folk group formed in New York City in 1961, during the American folk music revival phenomenon. The trio was composed of songwriter Peter Yarrow, Paul Stookey and Mary Travers. After the death of Travers in 2009, Yarrow and Stookey continued to perform as a duo under their individual names.

"Leaving on a Jet Plane" became their only No. 1 single (as well as their final top 40 pop hit), in December 1969, and was written by the group's friend John Denver. It was the group's sixth million-selling gold single. The track first appeared on their million-selling platinum certified Album 1700, in 1967 (which also contained their No. 9 hit "I Dig Rock and Roll Music").        Source

   Leaving on a Jet Plane.

Marian answered:

Dale of Diamond Springs, Norcali said:
   "Leaving on a Jet Plane" was Peter, Paul & Mary's only #1 hit single. Of course it was composed by the ever-contemptible John Denver, King of the environmental hypocrites. During the 1st energy crisis in the 70's, he had 50,000 gallon fuel storage tanks built on his mountain ranch in Colorado.

I figured out how to do it with most items…
  I can't wait to see what a nightmare getting everything loaded on the new machine…I just might be sane enough to hire one of the young guns to do it!

Torches 'Man-Baby' T-rump

Jon Stewart

The former host of The Daily Show has been retired for months now, but that doesn't mean he's not following the news. In particular, he seems to be following the remarkable success of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump very closely. Appearing on David Axelrod's "Axe Files" podcast this week, Stewart tore into the presumptive Republican nominee and said he wasn't sure it was constitutional for a "man baby" to become president.

"Are you eligible to run if you're a man-baby, or a baby-man?" Stewart quipped. "I don't know if they're referred to as man-baby Americans. He is a man-baby. He has the physical countenance of a man and a baby's temperament and hands."

Stewart then recalled the time he and The Daily Show made fun of Trump by calling him "a boiled ham in a wig" and Trump responded with a furious tweetstorm in which he made fun of Stewart for not going by his given name, which is Jon Leibowitz. At any rate, the encounter taught Stewart that Trump simply could not handle any form of criticism without launching into a narcissistic rage.

"Character is destiny," Stewart said. "And he is the most thin-skinned individual."

Check out the whole video -- Stewart starts talking about Trump at around the 8-minute mark.

Alabama Hero

Ambrosia Starling

Wearing big hair, loads of makeup and high heels, small-town drag queen Ambrosia Starling is the new worst nightmare of suspended Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore.

Moore has called out Starling twice by name in recent days while defending himself against allegations of violating judicial canons with his opposition to same-sex marriage. During a news conference and in a written statement, Moore cited the cross-dressing entertainer as a reason he's at risk of losing his job for the second time since 2003.

That's fine with Starling, who helped lead an anti-Moore rally on the steps of the Alabama Supreme Court building in January. Opponents that day filled out more than 40 complaints against Moore, who already was the subject of other complaints and now faces removal from office if convicted of violating judicial ethics.

"If it takes a drag queen to remind you that liberty and justice is for all, here I am," Starling said Tuesday between sips of coffee.

Born and raised in the southeast Alabama city of Dothan, Starling is a gay man who dresses up like a woman to perform drag shows. Most days, the 43-year-old Starling dresses like a male and goes to a regular job, referring to himself as "he."

Native Americans In Oklahoma Join Forces

Monarch Butterflies

Seven Native American tribes in Oklahoma will provide habitat and food on their lands for monarch butterflies, whose numbers have plummeted in recent years due to troubles along their lengthy migration route.

Tribal leaders said at a news conference on Tuesday in Shawnee, southeast of Oklahoma City, they will plant crucial vegetation for the butterflies, including milkweed and native nectar-producing plants, on their lands.

"For the last several years, we have been raising bees and pollinators, so when his opportunity came along, it fit with what we were doing," Thalia Miller, director of the Chickasaw Nation Horticulture Department, told reporters.

The tribes will work with the University of Kansas' Monarch Watch program and the Euchee Butterfly Farm in Bixby, Oklahoma. The project is supported by a grant of about $250,000 from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation.

Pay Up


Woodstock in 1969 cost $18, or about $117 in today's prices, for the chance to see artists like Jimi Hendrix and The Who in their primes. That was a long time ago.

The show is being organized by the company that puts on Coachella every year-a multi-million-dollar juggernaut in itself. Coachella three-day passes start at $375 and a weekend can add up to more than $1,000, easily.

As the biggest acts are spread out across multiple days (the Rolling Stones will take the stage on Friday evening, for example, while McCartney is slated for Saturday, and The Who will play on Sunday), the festival is essentially pushing fans to spring for one of the three-day options.

The most basic of those passes, offering only entrance and parking, is $399.

For additional amenities-like reserved seating, but also access to "shaded picnic areas" and "extra restrooms"-the cost soars to $1,599. None of these figures includes the $26-91 service fee applied to each ticket.

The music ends, and you're exhausted. Where to stay at night? For $99, you can camp on the festival's grounds themselves-but you'll have to bring your own tent, and it can take up no more than a 15-by-10-foot rectangle. Upgrade to a "fully pitched and ready-to-go tee-pee style tent with 16-foot diameter equipped with two cots" for a mere $1,600.



Digby's Hullabaloo


Counseling Association Cancels Convention


The American Counseling Association announced Tuesday that it is canceling plans to hold a conference in Nashville next year to protest a Tennessee law letting therapists decline to see patients based on religious values and personal principles.

The ACA, which has condemned Tennessee's new law as a "hate bill" that discriminates against gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people, has called the legislation an unprecedented attack on its profession. The organization says no other state has passed such a law and it has vowed to work to get it repealed.

The ACA had already booked its expo in the Music City toward the end of March, but decided to cancel after careful consideration, and hearing from the organization's members, said Richard Yep, its CEO. By pulling out, the organization, which has vowed to work to repeal the new law, is hoping to keep similar measures from passing around the country.

"Our message to other states is don't introduce bills that are essentially legalizing discrimination," Yep said. "It is discriminating against those who are least able to fight back."

"We are obviously disappointed, but we are not surprised," Butch Spyridon, president and CEO of the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp. said in a release. "This cancellation is the second one and is likely just the tip of the iceberg when you consider all the other groups that won't consider us now. It is regrettable that all the hard work and investment to make Nashville a top destination has been unnecessarily undone by politics."

UK Prosecutors Weigh Allegations

Cliff Richard

Prosecutors said they would consider whether singer Cliff Richard, one of Britain's best-known entertainers, should face charges over alleged historical sex crimes after being handed a file of evidence by police on Tuesday.

Richard, 75, has twice voluntarily met officers from South Yorkshire Police after it launched an inquiry in 2014 into allegations against him that date back to the 1980s and involve an under-age boy.

The singer has never been arrested and has always said the allegations against him are false.

Richard, born Harry Webb in 1940 and who was called Britain's Elvis Presley early in his career, has had 14 No. 1 singles in Britain.

He is the only singer to have topped the UK singles chart in five consecutive decades, from the 50s to the 90s, and was knighted by Queen Elizabeth in 1995.

Abandons U.S. Arctic Drilling Rights

Big Oil

After plunking down more than $2.5 billion for drilling rights in U.S. Arctic waters,Royal Dutch Shell Plc, ConocoPhillips and other companies have quietly relinquished claims they once hoped would net the next big oil discovery.

The pullout comes as crude oil prices have plummeted to less than half their June 2014 levels, forcing oil companies to cut spending. For Shell and ConocoPhillips, the decision to abandon Arctic acreage was formalized just before a May 1 due date to pay the U.S. government millions of dollars in rent to keep holdings in the Chukchi Sea north of Alaska.

The U.S. Arctic is estimated to hold 27 billion barrels of oil and 132 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, but energy companies have struggled to tap resources buried below icy waters at the top of the globe.

Shell last year ended a nearly $8 billion, mishap-marred quest for Arctic crude after disappointing results from a test well in the Chukchi Sea. Shell decided the risk is not worth it for now, and other companies have likely come to the same conclusion, said Peter Kiernan, the lead energy analyst at The Economist Intelligence Unit.

All told, companies have relinquished 2.2 million acres of drilling rights in the Chukchi Sea -- nearly 80 percent of the leases they bought from the U.S. government in a 2008 auction. Oil companies spent more than $2.6 billion snapping up 2.8 million acres in the Chukchi Sea during that sale, on top of previous purchases in the Beaufort Sea.

Renames Itself


What could be more American than standing in a backyard at a barbecue while holding a beer on the Memorial Day weekend in the United States? Budweiser thinks it has the answer: Holding a beer called America.

The brewer said on Tuesday it will rename its eponymous Budweiser brew as "America" from May 23 through to the Nov. 8 presidential election to "inspire drinkers to celebrate America."

During that period, cans and bottles of the beer will be adorned with U.S. icons such as the Statue of Liberty, phrases from the Pledge of Allegiance and lyrics from "America the Beautiful" and "The Star Spangled Banner." The change will coincide with the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

"Pretty cheeky for Budweiser to rename its beer 'America' considering it's now a Belgian company," tweeted T.C. Sottek (@chillmage), the managing editor of technology news website Verge.

Budweiser is owned by Anheuser-Busch InBev, which is based in Belgium.

Do you have a great album no one's heard?
How about a favorite TV show, movie, book, play, cartoon, or legal amusement?
A popular artist that just plain pisses you off?
A box set the whole world should own?
Vile, filthy rumors about Republican hypocrites?

Just plain vile, filthy rumors?
