Admiral Stockdale has died. A man who tried to serve his country despite not wanting the spotlight. There's something to be admired there.
New York lost the Olympics (not that I thought they'd get it) and London did. I really thought it'd be Paris. I'm still amused that my brother thought the West Side Stadium for the Jets was a done deal when they firsrt announced it.
Strangest of all, this just in from Bizzaro world: China has released a statement that their purchase of an American oil company is just a trade deal and America shouldn't be politicizing it. When a communist government is complaining that the US is politicizing a financial deal. Chairman Mao is spinning in his grave.
