I just found out tonight that one of Anthrocon's sign language interpreters, Bic Lee, was recently stabbed in an attempted robbery. Uncle Kage has set up a get well fund for him here: https://www.youcaring.com/bichri-bic-lee-504905

If you can, make a donation. If you can't, spread the word.

Frank Sinatra

Still one of the great entertainers of all time, born on December 12, 1915 in Hoboken, New Jersey. One of my favorite songs he ever did was his rendition of Cole Porter's "I've Got You Under My Skin" with Nelson Riddle's orchestra.

Appropriately, it opened his 1965 television special, which got me interested in Sinatra after seeing it on PBS back in 1995.

"There is no such thing as a self-made man or woman. Never was, never will be. We are all, as were those in whose footsteps we follow shaped by the influence and examples of countless other-parents, grandparents, friends, rivals. And by those who wrote the music that moves us to our souls, those whose performance on stage or on the playing field took our breaths away, those who wrote the great charters which are the bedrock of our system of self-government. And so many who, to our benefit, struggled and suffered many times of trouble and grave uncertainty. And by teachers...I want to stress as emphatically as I can the immeasurable importance of teachers." - David McCullough

When you chug a beer, you're a guy. When you chug a wine, you're a drunk. Why do you think they call them winos?
