    That was Monty Stratton.

    WildBill40: They are not there for the merchants, but for the municipality – and don’t believe the “traffic control” lie, the only legal reason for them.

    I thought the Washington Senators left town and became the Texas Rangers.

    swr: You sound like those nostalgic for slavery. Back then, union membership was a crime, that’s why so many of the early were called “Brotherhood of …”, disguised as fraternal organizations. Many of the earliest assembly line type jobs employed those of a same former nationality, who would pool their pennies to hire a reader to break the monotony of repetitive work – and the works read were socialist, but being in the workers’ native language, the bosses never caught on.
    Even independent farmers were joining together in the Farmers National Alliance, with their own newspapers and traveling lecturers – and brought about the People’s Party (populists) in the US, and similar movements world-wide (today called the Green Party in 83 countries). Lawrence Goodwin said, “The average dirt farmer had a better knowledge of how money really works, than a graduate student in economics does today.”

    Shouldn’t he be in clerical garb? He was a Vatican official, which is probably how he got away with it and Galileo didn’t.

    Recycle them. A year will come back in 6, 5, 6, 11 year cycles (2014 will be good in 2025). The uneven cycle is due to leap day. All you need to do is mark in the holidays from the lunar calendar (Yom Kippur, Easter, Ramadan, etc.) and you have a new calendar for free.

    SusanSunshine: Ogden Nash would force his rhymes in the second; you start off with the force. Brilliant.

    pupsdad: From Amos to Jesus, God’s message is that no one knows when end time will be, and you won’t like it when it comes. Yet some self-serving image on TV is believed instead.

    Josh Lyons: Calendars can be recycled. Just update those from lunar calendars that wander around the Gregorian one, like Yom Kippur, Easter, and Ramadan. 2014 will come around again in 2025. They repeat in a 6, 5, 6, 11 cycle. If you have a 2009 calendar, it will be usable for 2015. Leap day is what throws it off from just regressing one day per year.
