An American Hero
Thank you for posting this tribute!!!  I am old enough to remember watching his capsule descend into the ocean on the old black and white TV we had at the time.  I can remember being so excited that someone had actually been to outer space and back.  Mr. John Glenn just seemed to be a good man.  May he rest in peace.

Donald Trump's Interim Moves
Being the businessman he is, I believe Trump is preparing to take the oath, and go to work the next day.  The more he has ready and in place, the easier it will be for him to begin.  I  applaud him for his positive confident moves towards taking control of a sagging economy and a corrupt government.  Just saying!!!!  [smile]

Jackie
I saw it just the other day and am as excited as you are.  Portman was on the Today show talking about the movie.  She says it is based on fact as well as what the producers thought Jackie went through in her quiet alone moments after the assassination.  I can't wait to see it.  [smile]

DeVos as Secretary of Education
There's finally a DeVos in the White House.  Being a part of Amway for a while I have nothing but respect and admiration for the DeVos family.  With the business principals and morals, she can't be anything but an asset to the administration.

The Rolling Stones Keep Rolling
OMGosh.  I went to one of their concerts in Charlotte, NC at the Panthers stadium yearrrrrrrrs  ago.  Bridges to Babylon.  Still have the T-Shirt.  The Stones are one of my most favorite groups and I'm glad they are still going strong.  It hurts to see how they have aged though.  Then again, I just have to look in the mirror.  HaHa!! [rofl]

Mitt Romney or Rudi Giuliani for Secretary of State
I'm with you oldtimer.  The only reason to even consider Romney is to try and unify the party.  I think Giulliani is the better choice simply because of the lack of support by Romney during the election. However, it's always good to keep your enemies close. There must be a method behind this madness.

Trump Tower
Hmmmm!  Hard to say Archie.  I would say that he may use it equally to the White House but he will have to be in Washington a good part of the time.  I was shocked and impressed to see all those dump trucks full of sand parked around Trump Tower after the election.  Somebody was on the ball!!!

Pearly Gates
Yes that does about sum it up Archie.  I will be so glad when this election is over.  I think I like this one the best "A Fox News national poll found that people prefer Hillary Clinton to Donald Trump by 10 points. While an MSNBC poll found that Hillary Clinton has already been president for two years." Seth Meyers.  I surely don't want Bill back in the White House.  [frown]

A Coup In Camelot - The Trailer of The Movie
Just watched the trailer and I'm hooked.  I'll have to see the whole thing now.  Teasers are the fact that he was shot from the front rather than the back?  I've never heard this before.  Was this brought out before and I just missed it?

Your gut feeling
In a country as great as ours, are these two nominees the best we can come up with?  You all make very valid points and to answer the question, I simply don't know who will win.  I've already voted for Trump with the hopes that the Mega democratic money/deceit machine can be stopped.  Otherwise I believe the country is in real trouble.

BOO!
Thanks!!!  We went to the neighbors house and had wine on the porch while we waited for the spooks.  We only had one spook.....my granddaughter who was dressed up like Minnie Mouse.  She was a cute spook.  I drank too much wine, ate too much candy, laughed a lot and loved every minute.   Hope everyone had a great Halloween!!!

Olympics
I have watched more of the Olympics this time than I ever have.  Those athletes are amazing.  It does me good to see the USA walking away with the most medals.  Makes me proud!!

Can they do that?
Yes it has stumped.  "We the People" can't stand another Democratic term of office.  Least of all Hillary.  Our country will be in total ruin with the Clintons in the Whitehouse again.   Are there really that many people out there that don't see what's happening?

Can they do that?
With Trump's recent fall in the polls there have been rumors about replacing him with another candidate on the Republican ticket.  Can they do that?  It would certainly have a drastic effect on the election and all of his supporters.

Anatomy Of A Second Floor Lunch Room Encounter
What a great piece of work Barto.  You have really done the research on this one.  Do you think that Officer Baker was in on the plan or did he just get caught up in the moment?  Watching the first video you posted of him, he seems to be a "good ole" Texas boy with a bit of over confidence.  A lot seemed to have happened to all parties involved in a minute and a half.  Don't you think?

From NARA by ROKC
Curtain rods?  Really.  I don't do guns but I really do think I could tell the difference.  The fact that he rode down the elevator with a couple of witnesses is confusing.  They let him off on the 4th or 5th floor.  I'm not sure I see the relevance here.

Alligator attack - is Disney to blame?
I told my husband just the other day that I thought I had been over protective when my children were growing up.  His reply was "they grew up didn't they?"  I know toddlers are hard to control and can get away quickly.  I just wonder how close the parents were when that little fellow was snatched away.  It is a tragic situation and my heart goes out to the parents.  I see lots of new signs up around all Disney bodies of water in the future.

What if Kennedy had been beaten by Nixon?
I was also one of the ones who lived through it.  I was in the 6th grade when my teacher got word that the president had been shot.  I remember her stopping class and turning the TV on so we could watch what was happening.  The headlines, the funeral, the reports; I saw it all live.  It was a sad time and the country mourned.

What if Kennedy had been beaten by Nixon?
An interesting thought!  As it were, Nixon's downfall was Watergate.  He just happened to be one that got caught.  If we are to suppose that Kennedy was pure, then what fools we are.  He had his skeletons but managed to keep them under control somehow.  Had he lived, he might have suffered a scandalous career.

What do you think we'll find out?
I agree MissKim.  They will never release the truth.  If they did, it would destroy what little faith is left in government and the way things are run.  If you take away a man's hope, you surely take away all he has.  If someone did try to publish the real truth I'm sure we would never hear from them again, before publication.
