Let’s try some musical captions: 867–5309 (Jenny) (Tommy Tutone, written by Alexander Hughes Call / James Irwin Keller), Don’t Hang Up (The Orlons, 1962, Dave Appell & Kal Mann); Hanging on the Telephone (Blondie, 1978, Jack Lee); Hello (Adele, 2015); “Hello Central, what’s the matter with this line…” (Hesitating Blues, WC Handy, 1915).
Bureaucracy in action, Keystone Cops headline from nypost.com: “FBI lost count of how many paid informants were at Capitol on Jan. 6 — later performed audit to figure out exact number: ex-official.” Soon government will be beyond satire.
I’ve always been intrigued by the underground economy. From NYP: “Hell on wheels: Tidal wave of migrants in NYC sparks black market for food delivery workers.” Quid Pro Joe has created jobs!
If only, from NYP: “Iran is on edge of full rebellion — West must stop aiding the regime.” I’ll believe it when I see it, although I agree with second part of the statement.
It looked like the floating book shop was going to be disappointing on this gorgeous day, then a young cutie came along late in the session and took out my SAT prep inventory. I love when people know value. My thanks and best of luck, and to the woman who bought a kids’ book in Russian.
