Everything is a mess, but at least we have a transgender admiral


 (My new American Thinker post)

It was nine months this week that Joe Biden became president.  To say the least, it's been a mess and getting messier, from inflation to supply chain issues to a lawless border and the President dropping dramatically in polls.

Nevertheless, they can't contain their enthusiasm over at NPR.  They can't stop telling us that history was made this week:   

Dr. Rachel Levine is once again making history, becoming the first openly transgender four-star officer to serve in any of the country's eight uniformed services.

During a ceremony Tuesday, Levine was sworn in as an admiral -- the highest-ranking official of the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps. Levine's appointment to the USPHS Commissioned Corps also made her the organization's first female four-star admiral.

Previously she became the first openly transgender person to be confirmed by the Senate for a federal office.

"[Becoming a four-star officer] is very meaningful to me. I am so impressed by the dedication, the commitment and the expertise of the officers and the United States Public Health Service Commission Corps. And it is truly an honor to lead them and to serve with them," Levine said in an interview with NPR.

She describes her appointment as part of the Biden administration's commitment to diversity, inclusion and equity.

We wish the admiral well.  I am delighted to read that the Biden administration is committed to diversity, inclusion, and equity.   Just remember that the next time you fill up your tank. go out to dinner, go shopping for groceries or read about the border.

1976: "Disco Duck" on the radio



Back in 1976, the country was doing "Disco Duck:"

October 21, 1975: Another year to remember Carlton Fisk and game 6


Image result for carlton fisk HR images

It seems like the whole country was up watching game 6 of the 1975 World Series.  It was about 12:30 ET when Fisk hit the foul pole and ended one of the greatest baseball games ever played.

It took me a while to fall sleep because the post game celebration went on for a while.   I don't know if anybody slept that night in New England.

Cincinnati and Boston went back to work the next night to play game 7.  It was a pretty good game.  Yaz made the last out of the game and the Reds were the champs.

It was the greatest baseball moment of my generation.

We remember Dizzy Gillespie (1917-1993)



Image result for dizzy gillespie imagesWe remember today one of the giants of US jazz.

Dizzy Gillespie was born on this day in 1917.  He died in 1993.

He left us a tremendous legacy of music and recordings for future generations to enjoy.   

Dizzy Gillespie also pioneered the fusion of Afro-Cuban rhythms with jazz music in the 1940's.

We found the VP.... in another video


 (My new American Thinker post)

Kamala Harris has been hard to locate lately.  We did see her in a video for kids or a movie that may be released soon under the title of "The Kam from Outer Space" a followup to "The cat from outer space."    

The "kids video" may have been tone deaf.  The latest video promoting the Democrat candidate at black churches may be illegal, as Professor Jonathan Turley wrote:  

The problem is that such direct politicking in tax-exempt churches has been unlawful for decades. Section 501(c)3 states:

"Corporations, and any community chest, fund, or foundation, organized and operated exclusively for religious, charitable, scientific, testing for public safety, literary, or educational purposes, or to foster national or international amateur sports competition (but only if no part of its activities involve the provision of athletic facilities or equipment), or for the prevention of cruelty to children or animals, no part of the net earnings of which inures to the benefit of any private shareholder or individual, no substantial part of the activities of which is carrying on propaganda, or otherwise attempting, to influence legislation (except as otherwise provided in subsection (h)), and which does not participate in, or intervene in (including the publishing or distributing of statements), any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for public office."

Again, the kids' video was stupid.  The "Souls to the polls" may be illegal.

The bad news is that VP Harris will likely get away with it.  What Black Caucus Democrat will call on the VP to stop doing it?   The good news is that it shows that the Democrats are desperate to get the black vote out.

According to Karl Rove, the souls are not enthusiastic in Virginia to vote Democrat:    

As of Sunday -- this is the total as of Sunday night, 408,770 people had voted. That is only 30% of how many people had voted at this point in the 2020 election. The Democrats need to have the turnout be in the early voting roughly 52, 53, 54% of what it was in November of 2020, and instead, it’s running at about 30%. Think about this. They brought in the big guns. They sent Stacy Abrams to Norfolk. This was the first Sunday in Norfolk in which you were allowed to vote early on Sundays so they’re gonna have the souls to the polls effort led by Stacy Abrams, rockstar at the top of the Democratic ticket. And in the four early vote locations in Norfolk, 396 people showed up to vote that day. So the Democrat enthusiasm here is really, really problematic. 

What will happen in Virginia?  Upset or close Democrat win?  Time will tell, but the Democrats are in full panic mode.

Happy # 84 Juan Marichal


Related image
We say happy birthday to Juan Marichal, one of the greatest pitchers in major league history.   

Marichal broke with the Giants in 1960 pitching a shutout against the Phillies.   He went on to pitch 14 seasons with San Francisco:  238 wins, 2.84 ERA and 244 complete games.    

Overall, he won 243 games after finishing with Boston in 1974 and LA in 1975.

In 1963, Marichal and Warren Spahn of the Braves locked into one of the greatest pitching duels in major league.    I wrote about it here:  The day Marichal and Spahn took work ethic to a higher level.

I finally had a chance to see Marichal when he played for Boston in 1974.  He was an old veteran but still had that magical leg kick.   it was a real treat to say that I saw him pitch even at the end of his marvelous career.

Marichal was selected to The Hall of Fame in 1983.
