Thanks for the out-loud laugh! that was amazing and delightful. He said it took over 300 hours and I can well believe it: he must have the orchestral score!

Have you heard Rockapella and Sam Harris do “The Change”? It’s also all a capella, and it will take your breath away!

Forgive me for hijacking the thread, but I just read something that made my blood boil. A 17 year old Kentucky girl who was the victim of a sexual assault is about to be charged with Contempt of Court for naming her attackers. Sexual assault victim’s tweets about attackers prompt contempt case against Louisville’s Savannah Dietrich My recommendation is to… Read more »

The admission came in the form of a story by Jeremy Peters… Read more »

Many years ago I was chatting with a member of the local constabulary and I commented on the low crime rate in my state. His answer? “Half the households… Read more »
