    Healthcare in America?

    Powerful conservative groups line up against House GOP health plan Heritage calls it 'bad policy.' FreedomWorks pans it as 'Obamacare-lite.' And the Club for Growth called it a 'warmed-over substitute for government-run health care.' http://www.politico.com/story/2017/03/trump-health-care-plan-tweets-235761
  7. Can't speak to Mississippi, but just got back from a first-time-ever visit to Louisiana. Spent some time in New Orleans the weekend before Fat Tuesday, then did a riverboat up past Baton Rouge and back. Had a wonderful time. Nice people, nice country.

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    What is your avatar?

    Bogie in "Deadline USA," the best newspaper movie ever made, IMHO. I spent 30-some years in the newspaper business before being forced by closures and layoffs into five years of marketing/communications contract jobs. Then just this year I somehow managed to get back on part-time at a newspaper, a gig I hope to keep going until I retire in two years.

    SPORTS

    Every time the Olympics come around, I give thanks that I live close enough to Canada that Comcast includes the CBC in its channel packages, thereby allowing me to ignore the horrid Comcast/NBC Olympics "coverage." I see a lot of Canadian athletes this way, of course, and I root for all of them.

    Clinton ate at one of our favorite Tucson restaurants, Mi Nidito, in 1999. What he had that day is still on the menu as the "President's Plate": Bean Tostada, Birria Taco, Chile Relleno, Chicken Enchilada and Beef Tamale http://www.minidito.net/ ......................

    Clever TV show title...

    So, do ANY of our Canadian members watch the show I refer to? Or, HAVE seen it? We're not Canadian, we're in the Seattle area, and we've been watching it avidly since it started. Levy is a genius, and it has Chris Elliot as well. Our favorite Canadian series since "Little Mosque on the Prairie."
