    A great comedy duo back in the days of Vaudeville, but they never got to make the film debut that might have launched them because of the rating system.

    Tragic.

    Sweet went on to design Valentine's Day cards. Salty was arrested several times on morality charges in and around the Boston area before being elected to Congress.

              • This doesn't qualify as 'all things pleasant,' but it was notable, and something I'd been unaware of beforehand, so finding it was a good lesson.

                I was in San Clemente in Orange County a while back, and in a small museum I got a chance to see the original plan of the city, ca 1925. Just reading it for the historical interest, my eye caught this line, the last in the second column of facts about San Clemente, which you can (hopefully) see if you click on the image:

                "Purchasers limited to Caucasian Race."






                Sorry about the shadow, I tried several shots, but too much light behind me and didn't know how to deal with that. I have no photographic skill, just a handy phone.

                    The Republicans. It's Orange County.

                        The times, they are a-changin'.


                        It may be small comfort for Democrats who are devastated that Hillary Clinton lost her bid for the White House, but the former secretary of State managed to do something no Democrat has done since the Great Depression — win Orange County.

                        Clinton beat Republican Donald Trump by nearly 5 points, or 39,000 votes, in the county that has long served as a national symbol for the GOP, the home to Richard Nixon and the cradle of Ronald Reagan's conservatism.

                        Franklin Delano Roosevelt was the last Democratic presidential candidate to take Orange County, in his 1936 contest against challenger Alf Landon.

                        This time, with 395,801 votes, Clinton took nearly half of the total, while Trump won 356,892 votes, or 45%.

                        Because of its deep Republican roots, Orange County is the most prominent red county to turn blue. But it was not alone — similar shifts occurred in other large, affluent suburban counties such as those outside Atlanta and Houston.

                        • It was significant watching that happen, but what would be even better would be seeing them boot Rohrabacher.

                            Or weep my friends with sorrow
