    VIDEO My wife convinced me to go to the Casino to hit the slot machines in order to see if we could earn the money back for a dinner we just had. I derided that idea as ridiculous but we still went to the casino. As it turned out, my wife was right. We earned back the money for dinner... and then some. You can see how the slot machine paid up three separate times in this video. If you don't want to hear my spiel then just fast forward to the parts with the slot spins.
  • The Cask of Amontillado (Full Text) by Edgar Allan Poe

    Metallicman ^ | 7OCT19 | editorial staff
    For Halloween, this is the full post of the story. This is a full text version in HTML for the short story by Edgar Allan Poe titled “The Cask of Amontillado”. I consider it one of his best stories. The story is set in a nameless Italian city in an unspecified year and is about the narrator’s deadly revenge on a friend whom he believes has insulted him. Like several of Poe’s stories, and in keeping with the 19th-century fascination with the subject, the narrative revolves around a person being buried alive-in this case, by immurement. What is Immurement? Immurement...

    American Thinker ^ | 10/04/2019 | Jeffrey A. Friedberg
    Good writers and excellent analysts may continue to politely chronicle the news — parrying every negative thrust made by the mass media, about Trump, conservatives, and Republicans. But, for me, born during World War II, the message seems the same. It never changes. I’ve seen it before, and it’s like it was then. It’s something I cannot touch or smell, but it’s all around me: a fake leftist reality telling me what to say, what to think, and what to believe. The 1940s and 1950s are what protects me. What I experienced and learned. What I was taught. What I...

    In 1951, Yiddish theater star Molly Picon, together with Jacob Kalich, her husband and fellow entertainer, and Cardinal Francis Joseph Spellman, the Vicar General of the United States Armed Forces, headed to Korea with a USO Christmas troupe. But as soon as Picon and Kalich stepped off the plane, a U.S. Army Chaplain ran up and asked if they could join 400 “boys” for Hanukkah. “Of course after flying 48 hours, we didn’t say no,” Kalich recalled in their 1971 interview for the William E. Wiener Oral History Library, held at the New York Public Library. “We started to give...

    This afternoon, Hillary Clinton paid a visit to Arendelle when she stopped by Frozen on Broadway! After the show she posed for photos with Caissie Levy (Elsa), Patti Murin (Anna) and the rest of the Frozen Broadway company. Check out the photos below! Frozen, a full-length stage work told in two acts, expands upon and deepens the tale's indelible plot and themes through new songs and story material from the film's creators; in fact, this new stage production features more than twice as much music as the film. Based on the 2013 film written by a trio of Oscar winners,...

    The annual WMAL Free Speech Forum was held last night at the Birchmere in Alexandria, VA. WMAL's Larry O'Connor, Vince Coglaniese and Mary Walter were there, but the stars of the show were Mark Levin and Chris Plante. I cannot begin to tell you how much they complement each other -- their comedic cadence and timing is spectacular. I sat about 10 feet away from Levin and he was just plain AMAZING! They chronologically analyzed Democrats, the media, Never Trumpers and everything in between. They were funny throughout. It was brilliant. Enclosed please find a short Facebook video of the...

    President Clinton? Mariah Carey roasted for Trump-bashing photo op with Hillary & Bill Mariah Carey has felt the wrath of Twitter after sharing photos she took with “President” Hillary Clinton and her husband.

She also thanked the pair for “everything you have done and continue to do for our country.” The photo op was applauded by many of Carey’s...

    *The BeyHive is calling on actress Bette Midler to fall back after she suggested Beyonce should help mobilize against President Donald Trump’s 2020 presidential bid. However, her attempts to use the superstar’s fanbase for her political agenda quickly backfired. Taking to Twitter, the “Hocus Pocus” star urged Beyonce to call on her millions of followers to rock the vote in 2020. “Beyoncé has 133 million Instagram followers,” Midler tweeted. “More than double the people who voted for Trump. Wouldn’t it be amazing if the #BeyHive mobilized to defeat him? I also wouldn’t mind if a regular bee hive f****d his...

    Nice day in Manhattan today so decided to take a walk from my midtown office over to see Ric Ocasek's townhouse. Yes, he died over the weekend. 75 years old. Purportedly. Lead singer of The Cars. Confirmed. Had a lot of quirky and catchy hit songs from the late 1970s to mid 1980s. Multi-platinum albums. Produced some creative videos that showed on MTV back when MTV played music videos. Now you can see all of them on demand out on the YouTube. Ric Ocasek seemed like a decent guy. Kept a low profile. He never screeched about his politics at...
