Last year, while in Nashville, I visited the new Johnny Cash Museum and in New York strolled by the Brill Buildings, where folks like Carole King (“Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow”) and Ellie Greenwich (“Da Doo Ron Ron”) wrote the songs we remember from the 1960s.

“Did you see the photo of the president shaking hands with Castro? Oh, I meant the photo of Richard Nixon shaking hands with Fidel Castro. He put the five-finger grip on Mao Tse-tung, too. Their records on human rights are pretty well known, but somehow the Republicans have a bad case of memory loss about those photos. McCain slipped Muammar Gaddafi ‘five’ also, but he seems to have forgotten that while taking Pres. Obama to task for his greeting to Raul Castro.”
Wow, what’s going on at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue? The “FOTUS” turned into “FOTUS-ZILLA” at the State Funeral for South Africa’s Nelson Mandela.

In recent days and weeks a particularly large cloud dusted eastern Caribbean islands, made for hazy skies and intense, tangerine-tinted sunsets off Havana, drifted over Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula and was detected as far away as Wyoming. In satellite images provided by NASA, the enormous, smoky clouds can be seen wafting westward from Africa covering hundreds of square miles. (AP Photo/Ramon Espinosa)

Go back 46 years to the 1967 Boston Marathon, when Katharine Switzer’s race was nearly interrupted when race official Jock Semple tried to pull her off the course (her boyfriend literally body checked him out of the way).
