Sure Happy It’s Thursday, GN!

Mac --

“Heh!” for today’s thread pic.

LambiePieK’s still asleep; I suspect she was probably up late again either reading or binge-watching something.

Been out-of-touch re news the past couple of days; I probably needed a break, anyway.

Good morning, Fatwa -- glad Brenda is resting. Hope you are getting some as well.

Speaking of binge-watching, I’ve been doing that for the series The Mentalist with Simon Baker and Robin Tunney. If you never watched it, it’s about a fake psychic, Patrick Jane, whose wife and daughter are murdered by a serial killer named Red John and Jane spends several seasons hunting the killer as a police consultant. It’s goofy in a lot of places, but entertaining. It came out maybe 15 years ago.

Hi, Mac. It’s more of an entertaining throwback to the McMillan and Wife, Columbo, Rockford Files, etc. types of cop/mystery shows. Simon Baker does a good job in the lead role.

If I can make a suggestion with The Mentalist and if you have access to all 7 seasons, watch Season 5-Episode 5-Red Dawn, first. It’s a flashback to when Jane first meets up with the CBI agents. If you like the feel of that one, then dig in beginning with the first episode. Jane’s hunt for the killer of his wife and daughter is not the focus of the show -- it’s always there, but most episodes don’t even mention Red John.

The goofiest thing on this show is the ease with which the crimes are solved and how everybody just confesses and never asks for an attorney. But it’s fun anyhow.

Regarding teh news, last night there was big media coverage on a mass shooting at an Oklahoma hospital -- this morning, crickets. I wonder why.

Sure Happy It’s Thursday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!

Trash pandas -- tricky little buggers, but at least you can understand their motives, unlike cats.

Fatwa -- I’m glad BrendaK is getting some rest.

Sven -- I looked all over the inner tubes for moar info on teh OK hospital shooting. Police aren’t identifying the victims or the murderer and none of the coverage has described the perp, even when interviewing people who saw him. I guess something doesn’t fit the narrative.

Something I’ve thought for years and agree with 100%.

We sadly lack leaders, but have no shortage of politicians and boot-lickers. I wonder if America, much like Trump, was an anomaly that’s run its course.

Great. Brandon is going to deliver a prime time address tonight on gun control. Suggestions for your drinking bingo card:

Well, that explains what I heard while driving home from the auto shop. In five minutes I heard at least seven of those. Good thing I didn’t have anything to drink in the car.
