Hitchcock knew from scary pedophiles, apparently

7 (Though at the time he was still a church-going Catholic, Hitchcock's attitude may be illustrated by this anecdote.) Driving through a Swiss city one day, Hitchcock suddenly pointed out of the car window and said, "That is the most frightening thing I have ever seen." His companion was surprised to see nothing more alarming than a priest in conversation with a little boy, his hand on the child's shoulder. "Run little boy," cried Hitchcock, leaning out of the car. "Run for your life!"

Remember your federal ABCDs

(Agencies, Bureaus, Commissions and Departments)

All of the four are being damaged by the current administration’s willful vandalism. It is important to try and reduce the damage as it is being done, which is right now, and it will be important to try and restore the functions of the ABCDs after this administration is gone.

Simon Cowell is invited, by me, to go to hell

Please never watch another episode of “America’s Got Talent” this year.

Scottie Nell Hughes is a horrible person.

I had no idea she was so terrible, what as I have never watched much cable news.

She was invited on to the first hour of The Diane Rehm show this a.m., but I don’t know why; it was supposed to be about journalism, and she demonstrated that she’s no journalist.

A drawing of Florence’s Sagrestia Nuova & environs I did in 1997

Sagrestia Nuova & environs drawing 1997
After taking this (mediocre) pic of it, I framed it and presented it to Manfredo, the manager of the Pensione La Scaletta in Florence (which is now the Hotel La Scaletta, and probably more expensive).
