I’ll be volunteering with Sweetie at the Reno Air Races working box security through Sunday. If you happen to be there, come on down to the box seat gate closest to the pit and say hello. We’ve got to get up at the crack of dawn every day, so posting may be light, but who knows. Something may strike me (doesn’t it always?)
In the meantime, please give your full attention to your flight attendant as we prepare for take-off. (Source)
Scientific American, July 1859:
DESCENT INTO CHESS— “A pernicious excitement to learn and play chess has spread all over the country, and numerous clubs for practicing this game have been formed in cities and villages. Why should we regret this? It may be asked. We answer, chess is a mere amusement of a very inferior character, which robs the mind of valuable time that might be devoted to nobler acquirements, while it affords no benefit whatever to the body. Chess has acquired a high reputation as being a means to discipline the mind, but persons engaged in sedentary occupations should never practice this cheerless game; they require out-door exercises—not this sort of mental gladiatorship.”

He concedes that delivering on his promise to hand-deliver the cards and letters entrusted to him may be difficult. Witter has read all the books of the popular “Left Behind” series, so he knows what to expect. Covered with boils, he will have to fight his way through perpetual darkness, clouds of insects, and meteors falling from the sky to deliver the mail.
This is hysterical.
A friend passed this little gem on to me. I’ve seen Yankee Doodle Dandy many, many times over, but never have seen this movie. Prepare to be entertained (and surprised).
