    Goodbye, Dogz. Loved you all–Cooder (before my time with TBogg), Satchmo, Beckham, the present-day hounds. My Thursdays will be dimmer from now on. I must acknowledge the kindness of all, when I reported the death of my much- loved Sam the Dog. Good people, all of you. Blessings to you and yours, TBogg.

  • (Latin nerd uncloaks) Since Hawes was using his word “apocalypsae” as the direct object of the verb “have,” it should in fact be accusative casel plural, hence, “apocalypses.” (Yes, it looks just like the English word). Personally,I’m waiting for the apocalypso, when zombie Harry Belafonte will wan’ go home when daylight come.

    Hmmm. 500-plus comments, many of them snotty and personal. This thread has some possibility of becoming a bit tedious. TBogg, let the healing begin with a Bonus Basset post.

    Cooder, Satchmo, Beckham, Fenway, Wembley. And, GWPDA, greetings to Arthur. (pours slug of Jack Daniels while NSA sucks in every one of my keystrokes)

    I’ve never had carpal tunnel surgery, but I did once have a dental implant. (Endless tale of the horrors of surgery and recovery) But I. . .I’m OK now. (Brave, gallant smile)

    Blessings of the day to you, Mme. Bogg! Fenway is rightly looking apprehensive at the incorrectly-assembled bundle of wrinkles, feet and belly blotches.

    Good thoughts tonight for the Old Gentleman and the Tough Guy. May Basset Heaven be filled with sunny places to sleep.

    They were reaching to punch off the alarm clock, and just decided, “Oh, the hell with it.” Rested their jowls and went back to sleep, with the Morning Zoo yammering in the background.

    Film Noir Fenway, complete with ominous shadows from the window shades.

  • As a couple of commenters have noted, Hobby Lobby and Mardel’s are run by evangelical Christians, not Mormons. Hobby Lobby has killed off independent hobby shops in the Oklahoma City area, if not elsewhere. It really annoys me to have to patronize these creeps if I want some model airplane paint (OK, I’m pretty much of a dork here), and I’m glad to see the getting a slap in the face from the Supremes on this issue.

    Megan, if you use “gift” as a verb again, I’m going to come upside your head with a 13-inch cast iron skillet.

    As always, Ross provides rigorous documentation (with numerous links to peer-reviewed demographic studies)for the trends he observes among Hispanics, unmarried Americans, secularists. A lesser journalist would have simply made assertions with no facts to support them. Oh, wait…

    Are you sure that was from The Onion? The panel seemed more reasonable and dealt better with the issues than most I’ve seen on cable news.

    Max the semi-greyhound does much the same. He loves getting a biscuit and being told he’s a good boy, but as for actually eating them–meh. We were unaware of his biscuit preservation until his brother Sam went to dog heaven a few months ago. Sam was apparently shaking Max down for all of his spare biscuits.

    Any possibility you can step into the continuum of that Bradbury story and keep that dumbass from stepping on the butterfly? Then we wouldn’t be in this dystopian hellscape.

    Thank you. It would be much appreciated. And, as long as you are passing through the swirling mists of time and space, please fix it so Kathy noticed my existence, and actually liked me, in eighth grade.
