1870: Texas re-enters the Union

If I remember my American History, Texas modified or rewrote its constitution to the satisfaction of Congress to regain its membership. With the “election” of Rutherford B. Hayes in 1876 (or 1877), it was all for naught as the GOP … Continue reading

At least LEGO Steve and LEGO Debbie got to hang out, have some frozen treats from the new City line’s ice cream truck. It’s pretty similar to the pizza one but it has three big differences. The cool popsicle logo … Continue reading

The money arrived!

What’s filling up our e-mail inboxes

A satire regarding all those hollow, suck-up, mercenary e-mails from Corporate Amerika on how they, we, etc. are weathering the pandemic. Maybe they’re already jockeying for position on the money Congress and the White House may send out in the … Continue reading
