Left the Building

Posted in Uncategorized by chamblee54 on August 16, 2008

Today is August 16. At least here and now…according to GMT it will be the 17th soon.
On this day in 1958, Madonna was born.
On this day in 1977, Elvis left the building.
On this day in 1986, a Madonna fan died on his birthday. JoemyG-d has the story here.

Other births on this day include T.E. Lawrence (1888), Charles Bukowski (1920) Frank Gifford (1930) Edie Gorme'(1931) and Kathie Lee Gifford (1953). Other celebrities to check out include Babe Ruth (1948 ) Margaret Mitchell (1949) Bela Lugosi (1956) and Idi Amin (2003). Thank you Wikipedia.

In other news, the John Edwards affair just keeps getting stranger. There are some strange stories coming out about Rielle Hunter. She was born Lisa Gluck, and had the sense to change her name. She was a gf of Jay McInerney, who based a character on her. The story about the racehorse is a shocker.

Spell check suggestions for this feature:
Bukowski- Mankowski, Kowalski, Buckskin
Gorme’- Gore, Gorge
Idi- edi, ida, midi, didi, id
Amin- armin, amie, Main, amino. akin
Gluck- luck, cluck, pluck

    Regarding the John Edwards affair, I believe the expression is “That’s a hot mess.”

    Thanks for stopping by. I suppose that with Rothstein not making substantial posts on weekends, you needed somewhere to go.
    As for Johnny Haircut, there is a lot to that story. If I get unslack enough I may write another post about the affair. To me, the biggest problem is using campaign contributions to buy the silence of the gf. The misuse of these bribes campaign contributions has been going on for a long time. The corporate media will not say anything, because the sale of political advertising is a profit center. JSM and BHO will not say anything, because they are just as corrupt as Johnny Haircut. The bloggers might say something, but few will pay attention.
    These are interesting times.
