    That's what the part in bold means. The Marconi detail was irrelevant; the correction is what the R stands for.

    But you know, I didn't spell out what phase the moon was in that way. Maybe you can look that up and let us know.

    SNIP:
    MSNBC on Voting Rights Act: Clarence Thomas is a symbolic Jew inviting a metaphorical Hitler to commit genocide

    Via Mediaite. If you believe Eric Holder is the Moses of our time because he’s the “chief lawgiver of the United States,” I guess you’ll believe this. We should be thankful, at least, for the creativity of the metaphor. Most of the nastier left-wing attacks on Thomas rely on lazy smears of him as an “Uncle Tom” or a “house slave.” If you’re going to go that far, you might as well go full Godwin. No sugar-coating.

    No, and the Canadian Rogers isn't nearly old enough. I think the guy in the anecdote must be the R in some other company and it got conflated with the vicrola in Jeri's memory.

    An ironic coincidence that Fred Rogers' show started on CBC, but unrelated to Rogers Canada.

    I posted that and firmly stand by it.

    When some naive do-gooder, with the best intentions in the world, promotes the idea that one is "SPECIAL", simply because one was born, it leads to the mentality that one just be there, do nothing, earn nothing, expect everything, and wealth and fame will automatically will fall on one's lap.

    As one who worked for everything I have, I know that life ain't like that. What Mr. Rogers promoted, i.e. that one is "SPECIAL" with no effort, no ambition, no desire, no results, will only result in success if it's backed up and supported by the biggest failure of mankind, AFFIRMATIVE ACTION.

    When one relies on affirmative action, one is a free-loader.

    Santa Claus actually was a sharpshooter in Vietnam, and several other wars. For him it all started when the Nazis invaded the north of Pole-land.

    He's been a CIA agent longer than that. Unlimited chimney access-- what as asset that is.

    I fell into a Mr. Rogers website the other day via Buzzfeed and man oh man I never knew how much he rocked in advocating for people to be allowed to record television shows.

    When one stands on lack of knowledge like you, he falls for a smear job, like on Mr. Rogers. He would support much of what you support, but he would say, "Why did you not bother to research the lies about me, so you could get to the truth? And try to be kind on the way."
