Deal or Deal
"Deal or Deal" video as soon as Tales of the New Depression/Brooklyn vs Bush.
Is this where I put in key words such as sex, lesbians, vampires, Christopher Lloyd and others things to which this blog do not pertain, but by putting them here, I may get hits from all the Christoper Lloyd lesbian vampire fans (and you know who you are)? This is the primarily humorous and occasionally rambling writings of Leon Tchaikovsky, humor writer. Enjoy.
Deal or Deal
A group of physicians hired by the National Football League have concluded there is no evidence that concussions diminish brain activity. They would have gotten away with their conclusion if they hadn't added a footnote stating they also believe that cigarettes are healthy.
Speaker Ben has been enjoying making new friends and discovering the 21st century. He was horrified to learn of the difficulties our emergency management programs face in getting assistance to people in need. He was glad to meet Dawn Wells, but was upset to later her how she was trapped on an island for years on an uncharted island, even though she stranded with a scientist and two skilled sailors who were unable to figure out how to fit a broken boat or signal for help. Dawn laughingly told Ben how she went to throw out the first baseball at an Altoona Curve game. Her first pitch went so wide it didn’t count. So she rolled the second throw to the catcher. Ben tried to throw a baseball, but found he isn’t big enough to even move a baseball.
A comic is outing himself, stating he is homosexual. The evidence he presents is an experience that happened when he was asleep. I am sorry, but I have contacted the Judicial Council of the Gay Mafia (what? You didn’t think it existed? OK, there is no Gay Mafia. They’re really called the Gay Cosa Nostra) and they have made an official ruling: this comedian's one gay purported experience does not count. He may not call himself gay. He is no more a gay than a person who gets his leg humped by a dog may call himself being into bestiality. Until he provides any other evidence, he is not allowed to call himself gay. Sorry, but while he's trying to “out” himself, the Judicial Council of the Gay Cosa Nostra is forced to “in” him.
This book by Jack Treadway provides an excellent portrayal of how Pennsylvania’s history and politics are intertwined. It further shows how political trends help shape this history, and how these trends continue and reemerge.
This is an excellent book by John J. Kennedy detailing and explaining the nature of Pennsylvania politics. It tells of the importance of strong Republican Party control of much of politics in our state’s history from the Civil War until the 1950s. Even as late as 1948, Pennsylvania was considered by some political scientists as about the state the third most likely to consistently elect Republicans. Republicans scandals in the 1950s coupled with the arrival of successful reform Democratic movements in some areas began the emergence of what today some might label Pennsylvania as a “purple” state, one where both blue Democrats and red Republicans can achieve statewide victories. Democrat George Leader’s election as Governor in 1954 is credited with introducing the statewide shift that broke the previously strong Republican electoral machine.
