Afterthought:

The hold music from my hosting provider, which I seldom had to listen to for more than three or four minutes, included “Down by the Riverside.”

When you go to the delicatessen store,
don’t buy the liverwurst!

Speaking of liverwurst, one of my favorite sandwiches is liverwurst with onions and mustard on a kaiser roll. I used to get them at my local Wawa in Delaware.

You can’t get one at Wawa in these parts. As a native Virginian, I am disappointed that Virginians don’t seem to understand sandwiches.

Nevertheless, I do know where to get a proper cheesesteak.

Out Roanoke way, a long-time Republican is fed up after trying to vote in a “firehouse primary” (whatever that is–sounds sort of like a caucus).

I’ll quote a bit of his article, but, really, you should read it.

Along with the usual questions — name, address, phone number, etc. — were questions to which I was required to answer in the affirmative, two of which immediately caught my eye.

One asked if I was in support of the “principles of the Republican Party” and the second required that I affirm that I would support/vote for whomever the Republicans had nominated to run in the November election.

Believing for a split second that Vladimir Putin would suddenly appear and congratulate me for showing up to ensure that he would receive the usual 96.7 percent of the vote, I was incredulous.

Then, again, that may depend on which list.

Better luck next time, Dean.

When a student by that name at a Radnor Township university ordered fake IDs from China, his first mistake was having the cards delivered to campus, police say.

The second was not realizing that he shared a name with a ranking school administrator.
