      A Supreme Court code of ethics is an absolute no-brainer. Since the justices won’t address the problem, here’s a solution: Congress can pass my Supreme Court Ethics, Recusal, and Transparency Act. It’s clearly time. — Sheldon Whitehouse (@SenWhitehouse) September 28, 2022

    • The Attacks On Nord Stream I & II
      Let’s point out the obvious. Russia had no reason to attack its own pipelines. If it doesn’t want gas to go thru them it just turns off the tap.

The Cocktail Hour

rico.jpgHi and welcome to the Cocktail Hour, that time of the day when we raise our glasses, instead of our voices, to one another. I am your hostess, Goldberry.

The big showdown happens next week. It’s a little scary. I’m afraid to watch. But if we all hold hands, I’m sure we’ll cross this street in one piece.

To the left of the door is Rico, our bartender with flair! Stop and say hello. Tonight’s featured drink is a *California Dream* . Tequila, yummmm… But you can order anything you like, we’re accomodating.

Tonight’s entertainment is Stan Getz. His compilation of cool jazz mixed with bop and swing, West Coast Jazz, can be found on iTunes or amazon. Here’s Stan Getz and John Coltrane, Oscar Peterson together covering the East Coast with Hackensack (NJ!) Rifftide:

Be careful not to flip your trigger. Those words can’t hold their liquor. Feel free to check your trigger words with Florence, our lovely check room attendant.

The waiters will be circulating soon with some empanadas, marcona almonds and mini-quesadillas with a selection of salsas.

Please drink responsibly and tip your wait staff generously.

  1. Rico, I’ll have a virgin California Dream. I’ve still got stuff I have to finish workwise. So, from that recipe, that leaves me with what? A maraschino cherry?
    Ok, then just give me the virgin.
    Diet coke and a twinky please.

  2. I’ll have the 12-year MacAllan. A double. No ice. Thanks.
