Seriously? You Could Take On Serena?

Serena may have lost to Simona Halep in yesterday’s Wimbledon Singles final, but she’s probably the best female tennis player at the moment.

Yet a survey in Great Britain found one in eight men think they could take a point from Serena.

The only way I could take a point from Serena would be if she double faulted.

Law & Order: SVU Has Been There & Done That

If you’re wondering if Law & Order: SVU will do an episode about the Jeffrey Epstein case, they did it back in 2011.

That said, the episode didn’t include any mention of the sweetheart deal Epstein got from then federal prosecutor Alex Acosta, so don’t be surprised if the writers are pounding that episode out now.

Letters From The Battle of LaGuardia (1776)


I found a copy of a letter from my Great Great Great Great Great Great Great Grandfather, Jedidiah Smirk, who served in the Revolutionary War under General Washington.

My dearest Martha,

The war has been especially difficult so far. The Redcoats fight fiercely, but General Washington is a clever man, and we’ve eluded capture by General Howe, even as the British secured a foothold in Brooklyn.

Yesterday our men were able to capture LaGuardia. It was a terrible battle, but the redcoats were hindered. Because of delays at TSA checkpoints, the British were unable to bring in reserves as we broke the main redcoat line near baggage claim in terminal “D.”

I’m sure this isn’t the last of it. Washington wants to hold the airport, but even if the British drive us off, the good general has a network of spies from among the Hare Krishnas who populate the main concourse.

Kiss the children for me.

Your loving husband,



After talking about capturing airports, he refers to the rockets red glare at Fort McHenry and the Star Spangled Banner.

Sorry, but that was the War of 1812.


So the speechwriter is off the hook…
