  Stevie King: Scholar Robert J. Gordon doesn't believe that the information technology revolution we live in measures up to past achievements. For him, the years 1870-1940 constitute "what real transformation looks like." He has five Great Inventions from that time; what do you guys think they are?

Feb-06-16  cormier: Top Haitian leaders negotiated an agreement to install a short-term provisional government less than 24 hours before President Michel Martelly was scheduled to step down, an official with the Organization of American States and local authorities announced Saturday.

In an exclusive interview with The Associated Press, special OAS mission leader Ronald Sanders said the interim president will be elected by Parliament for a term of up to 120 days. He said Prime Minister Evans Paul will remain in his position until lawmakers are able to confirm a prime minister by consensus in upcoming days.

Feb-06-16  ljfyffe: <jbc>heavily influenced by Blake>First of all per Trower...it only makes sense to bet on a racehorse named 'Eagle' rarther than one called 'Dove'....or
so says the <diceman>.... But speaking of connecting dots...

<When the stars threw down their spears/ And water'd heaven with their tears>
(William Blake: The Tiger>

BTW, jbc: Are you rehearsing your lines for your starring part of the spear-carrier in the upcoming Blake movie?

<On the side of a hill a sprinkling of leaves/ Washes the grave with silvery years>
(Simon and Garfunkel: Scarborough Fair)

You know if <diceman hadn't pointed out to me that I was just connecting dots, I would have thought for a moment that Simon and Garfunkel had read Blake's poem.
Thank goodness, dice knows so much about poetry and songwriting!

Feb-06-16  ljfyffe: *<tears> not years

  TheFocus: I have never seen the appeal of Garrison Keillor or his show PHC.

He is dull and boring and unfunny.
