The Secret Story of Butch Cassidy
and the Sundance Kid’s Last Tango

Everything comes to an end, even a tango party in Argentina. It was a perfect combination, that night in early 1904: a warm spring evening, a house full of the great, and a yard full of the good. The great: That would be the new governor, Dr. Julio Lezama, accompanied by the chief of police, military surveyors, and various political functionaries. And the good: That would be the 80 or so people standing on the grass, almost the entire population of this remote valley in the Andes. Among the guests were families, local laborers, and misfits from many nations. Some were broke South American cowboys; others immigrants from Italy, England, Wales,

Butch and Sundance should have gone into politics - it’s where the real money is, it’s safer and criminality is always rewarded...

Loved the article and very grateful for its non-political topic. Would like to remind the author that the name of the fine jewelry establishment in New York is "Tiffany." The 's so often seen is incorrect.

The flubs and failings of Joe Biden 2 replies
Posted by MissMolly 9/8/2019 4:55:37 AM Post Reply
Liar or idiot. It is hard to tell which of these best describes former Vice President Joe Biden. In fact, I really don’t understand how he can even be a contender considering his past. During the summer of my freshman year in college, then-U.S. Sen. Biden plagiarized the words of the leader of the British Labor Party, Neil Kinnock. These are the exact words he used during his closing statement at a Democrat debate at the Iowa State Fair on Aug. 23, 1987: “I started thinking as I was coming over here, why is it that Joe Biden is the first in his family ever to go to a university?
What Is The Point of CNN? 9 replies

CNN is a mid-tier cable news network that provides non-stop breaking news to bored airport travelers and internet journalists. The network has breathlessly covered President Donald Trump's every fart and utterance since 2015 and has contributed to the "national dialogue" through countless interviews with serious public intellectuals. Michael Avenatti, for example. One of CNN's most recent hires, former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, was found to have lied to federal investigators under oath prior to his firing in March 2018. In addition to his role as CNN contributor, McCabe has a new side hustle: Keynote speaker at Democratic Party fundraisers. And speaking of the network's keen eye for talent, CNN invited celebrity

A gain for Elizabeth Warren and a slip in support for Kamala Harris place Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders and Warren atop the field in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll, days in advance of the Sept. 12 Democratic debate in Houston, sponsored by ABC and Univision. The poll finds Biden, this summer’s front-runner, far better rated for electability than for being “the best president for the country.” Still, his supporters are more committed than those of other candidates, and electability has advanced as a priority, helping him hold his ground -- albeit not advance.

An Arizona woman plummeted to her death Thursday while ascending the iconic granite cliffs of Half Dome in California's Yosemite National Park, officials said. The victim was identified as Danielle Burnett, 29, of Lake Havasu City, park rangers said. In a statement, park officials said Burnett "fell over 500 feet down steep, rocky terrain, and was deceased when Park Rangers arrived on the scene," according to the San Francisco Chronicle. She was scaling the steepest part of the trail when she fell, a Yosemite spokesman said.

The M.I.T. Media Lab, which has been embroiled in a scandal over accepting donations from the financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, had a deeper fund-raising relationship with Epstein than it has previously acknowledged, and it attempted to conceal the extent of its contacts with him. Dozens of pages of e-mails and other documents obtained by The New Yorker reveal that, although Epstein was listed as “disqualified” in M.I.T.’s official donor database, the Media Lab continued to accept gifts from him, consulted him about the use of the funds, and, by marking his contributions as anonymous, avoided disclosing their full extent, both publicly and within the university.

Donald Trump wants people to think he’s a winner. So why does he act like a loser? Winners convey a sense of effortless superiority. They don’t have to work at it. You just know they’re above it all. If someone tries to criticize them, it’s beneath their dignity to worry about it. It’s just a little speck they brush off their shoulder. The Brits are good at that, Boris Johnson especially. We still don’t know how things will turn out there, but I expect his aplomb will carry him through. “There are no disasters,” he once joked. “Only opportunities. And, indeed, opportunities for fresh disasters.”

I can’t believe we’re still doing this in September 2019, nearly a year after her defeat by Brian Kemp, following numerous critiques of her claim, and months after Abrams herself stopped insisting that she won. “I have no empirical evidence that I would have achieved a higher number of votes” if everyone whom she believes should have been allowed to vote had done so, she told the NYT in April. She was questioning the basic fairness of the election, she stressed, not necessarily the outcome. So why are Democratic presidential candidates still not only questioning the outcome but insisting forthrightly that she won?

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has came under fire from conservatives on social media Thursday after he said he would be open to discussing population control as a means to combat climate change. The presidential candidate made the comments on Wednesday at a climate town hall on CNN after he was asked by an attendee about rising populations and how the planet "can not sustain this growth." The questioner, identified by CNN as a teacher named Martha Readyoff, said that she realized linking population control to climate was a topic "poisonous for politicians, but it's crucial to face."

Is former Vice President Joe Biden's "electability" argument weakening? From the beginning of his 2020 campaign, Biden has banked his nomination chances not on arguing that he's the best candidate, either in terms of policy or enthusiasm, but that he is the only one "safe" enough to run against Donald Trump in the general election. Coasting on his association with the wildly popular Barack Obama, Biden's strategy has been to appeal to skittish Democratic voters who might not themselves have much personal zeal for the former veep, but who believe he won't scare off those fragile working-class white voters in the Midwest who have become such a focus of media attention

Actually, Kamala Harris didn’t even get close to the truth in this answer at CNN’s climate-change forum last night. And unlike Joe Biden’s bleeding eyeball, CNN actually noticed it in a fact check.

Police in Massachusetts reportedly arrested 12 pro-immigration protesters Thursday after hundreds of demonstrators marched through the Boston area, blocking rush-hour traffic. The group, arrested for trespassing at the Amazon building in nearby Cambridge, across the Charles River via the Longfellow Bridge, were advocating for private businesses to stop cooperating with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Cambridge police said, according to The Hill. The unscheduled route frustrated passengers and police. “It’s rush hour, there’s only one way (on the bridge). Take some other way around,” a man said to WBZ-TV in Boston. The protesters reportedly refused to tell police their planned route.

Sanford, in an interview on “Fox News Sunday,” said he believes the GOP needs to have a conversation about what it means to be a Republican, adding: “We have lost our way.” The former governor, who was also a congressman from 1995 to 2001 and 2013 to 2019, highlighted in particular a need to discuss the country’s ballooning debt and deficits, as well as Trump’s turn toward trade protectionism. “One of the hallmarks of the Republican

The Duchess of Sussex is said to have told her new PR company that she wants to 'break the internet'. Meghan Markle reportedly made the statement during a meeting with the company, Sunshine Sachs. This comes amid claims from royal sources that the former actress and mother-of-one is 'more concerned about the U.S media than the British.' Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have embarked on a number of projects, seemingly away from the traditional Royal route, including Meghan's guest editorial at the UK version of Vogue magazine. Now senior sources have reportedly said she is looking to create a team which isn't 'bogged down' by tradition.

Maher criticized the culture that protects people from judging others, especially when it comes to "fat-shaming." Maher said fat-shaming doesn't need to end, it needs to make a comeback. The comedian said shaming and judging are necessary and the first step in reform. "I know this is a controversial thing to say now in today's America but being fat is a bad thing," Maher said.
