I see that Stephen Sondheim passed away yesterday.  Never a huge fan of his work, to be honest, but no question that the man changed the musical and, arguably, saved it from certain death.

Coke with breakfast?  Well, I guess it's not much different than coffee with sugar, still wouldn't order it though.  Other than that, great looking breakfast.

When I was in college, I'd have Coke with breakfast for the caffeine, as I hadn't started drinking coffee yet. 

And I was a teaching assistant for self-paced introductory physics courses 8-10AM

Guess which Greek letters WHO skips over when naming COVID variants.

WHO skips over Greek letters 'nu' and 'xi'; names new variant 'omicron'

"'Nu' is too easily confounded with ‘new,’ and ‘X' was not used because it is a common last name, and WHO best practices for naming disease suggest avoiding ‘causing offence to any cultural, social, national, regional, professional or ethnic groups,’" a WHO spokesperson told Fox News in a statement on Saturday.

Attorney Jonathan Turley suggested in a Friday tweet that the "concern is that W.H.O. is again avoiding any discomfort for the Chinese government," referencing Chinese President Xi Jinping.

And yet Delta House was never consulted on this same issue.

In #5 Occasional Reader said: And yet Delta House was never consulted on this same issue.

That's because they were on quadruple secret probation for refusing vaccination and not wearing masks at their parties.

 Chuck Norris and Delta Force were not consulted, either.

And NOBODY puts Chuck Norris on any kind of Secret Probation.

Pet peeve: Passengers on Amtrak who open the overhead bins, get their bags, depart… and leave the bin doors open, for other people to either have to duck, or close.  There’s a certain fundamental narcissism at work.

Lest he be considered a one hit wonder, here is a sequel, that is arguably better, but bombed

Even though it predicted reality TV in 1980
