The National Weather Service was scheduled to furlough ALL 12,000 employees as part of the Sequester just as hurricane season starts, but the Congress decided AFTER the deadly tornadoes hit the midwest that maybe there could be some other arrangements made.

Beloved, multi-talented, and awardwinning TV, movie, and stage actress Jean Stapleton died Friday of natural causes at her NYC home. She was 90.
Aw, those were the days. The thing I recall about Stapleton (and admired the most) was that she refused to do “Edith Bunker” like a cocktail party trick after the show was over.

And that is professionalism. She will be missed.

*Full disclosure: I went to high school with Chris Stevens, so yeah it’s personal.

…when Grandpa Walnuts decided to invade Syria?
