   Tulsa  Great job, StormC. I searched last night and found oodles of cartoon's referencing the O's, but not the one Kono mentioned. I remembered seeing it.

Again, excellent job.

   Fireball27  Alright, this is what it is all about. People who work hard to accomplish something, no matter what color, will succeed or at least raise themselves up because of their effort.

   Kono  Does anybody recall the Must-Reads cartoon this last week featuring a media guy echoing loudly the familiar "America keeps blacks from making it" refrain, while whispering to the 8 or so U.S. gold medalists (smiling in triumph ), "you guys are making this awkward", or something like that?

I loved that cartoon and meant to save it but didn't get it in time, and now I can't figure out which cartoonist's archives to search for it. Did anybody catch that one?

   Gram77  I saw that and thought it was great but I can't remember who the cartoonist is was. Sorry.

   MeiDei  If you haven't registered to vote for a fashion statement, ck out her entry for this week's "Catty Talk/Walk" ..... print, windowpane seersucker & polka dot shoes
   August 26 at 07:58 EST .



   StormCnter  That truly does look like "homemade". Not home-sewn, not home-fashioned, not hand-tailored, but a first year home economics sewing project. I think it's just awful.

   Gram77  In the past 2 days I have been running into comments concerning her health and periodic coughing spells when speaking. Then on Lucianne a person commented that her best friend has Lupus and what is being described is similar to her friend's symptoms for Lupus. Now, I'm fully aware that tons of things good, bad and indifferent are going to begin to appear all over the place. I personally have no opinions yet concerning her health, but I do think the design of her clothing is anything but fashionable. It does make one wonder what is going on.

   Verdantheart  I am wondering if this was a group effort type of fashion statement-- made by a specific charity that Hillary endorses? It's the type of statement Dems make--seems like Jackie had textiles in her NYC apt made by Bobby Kennedy supporters in Harlem or some place similar. Could explain the departure from her usual rainbow color scheme.

I don't care for this look, tho I have mixed small prints, stripes, dots etc after seeing Mondo Guerra's work on Season 8 of Project Runway.

Mondo came in 2nd in Season 8 as the winner's line was more commercial. Design mentor (Tim Gunn ) 'make it work' was livid. Mondo was robbed!
Friday at 17:43 EST .


   Gram77  I clearly remember this and I wasn't happy about the decision either.
Friday at 21:17 EST .


   Tulsa  Gram, I'm relieved you knew I don't care for hill's outfit, but loved what Mondo did. He is totally unique and I'm happy to see he made it.

I've forgotten the name of the winner, but not Mondo's.

Project Runway is mindless entertainment. Fun stuff, imo.

On another fashion note, I've seen old Tracy/Hepburn movies and always loved Hepburn's wide, straight leg trousers and flats with cropped tops and sweaters. Smart looking and comfortable.

hill has the money to buy haute couture, but not the figure for it. That 'top' she's wearing looks like a housecoat.

And she is definitely ill, imo. I do think some of the over animation is her attempt to be more likable, but it just reads as strange.
Friday at 23:11 EST .


   Kono  Wow. Is that top cammies to make her harder for the FBI to track, or just really unfashionable jammies? Or is it her reinterpretation of the Deng nee Mao jacket?

   BirdsNest  If I was a major designer there is no way I would want her in any rag with my name attached. She looks awful in anything. And this is one of her worst choices. Maybe she has a "magic mirror" that makes her think she looks good.

   Fireball27  I hope the Trump people look at this site. If they do I have a suggestion for them. If, as the old saying goes, "a picture is worth a thousand words" please have Mr. Trump show pictures of the rotten democrat run cities in America. Show the pictures of the ILLEGALS smuggling drugs across the border. Show the absolute mess the ILLEGALS leave behind where they have crossed the border. Ask the greenies how they like seeing that mess! Start showing what we are actually talking about.
I once saw two pictures side by side. You were to look at the pictures and tell which one was bombed by an atomic bomb. One of the cities was American, and the other was in Japan. One of the cities was Detroit. Guess which one looked like a bomb hit it? Start showing pictures NOW!
August 23 at 15:45 EST .



   Fireball27  Something else I've been thinking about. Why isn't the main stream media asking Obama what he thinks of the Hillary running of the State Dept.? You know, how he told her not to involve the Clinton Foundation with his administration, and she did it anyway? Call out the media, again for not doing their job. They can't have an answer other than they don't think it matters. Call them out!

   BirdsNest  The picture on Drudge of HRC is the worst one I

   BirdsNest  Of course that picture is no longer there but if you saw it you certainly would remember it. Maybe Trump should use that picture....it IS pretty scary. Most Presidents age quickly once in office, can you imagine what SHE would look like. Ewwwww.

If that link doesn't work the picture is on the August 23rd edition. You can find it in the Drudge Archives.

   Gram77  Just watched the 5pm news. Lochte and 3 other swimmers may have problems. They were ordered not to leave the country, however, all the boys are already back in the U.S. More and more questions are being asked and there is talk about the robbery being false both on national news and on the internet. I thought something didn't ring right from the very beginning. Lochte has a lawyer and has said Lochte will be available for questioning. Again I say ummmmmmmm.
August 17 at 16:59 EST .




   Gram77  Saw something on MSNBC this morning. I think the reporter was Billy Bush. He had a quick chance to talk Lochte (I think this morning ), this I cannot swear to but the interesting thing was he took Lochte aside near the beach and asked him about the robbery. The reporter's take on the short talk was that he thought Lochte was unusually calm while describing episode. Then the reporter said that some sort of an official approached them and said to Lochte, "Ryan, we talked about this." and immediately took Lochte away. The Olympic officials are saying that this did not happen. Ummmmmm.

   StormCnter  There are several media sources saying the cops can't find evidence of the robbery. Here is one from Sports Illustrated. Puzzling.

   Gram77  Thanks, Storm. The article you suggested makes perfect sense. Frankly, I'll be glad when the Olympians are back in their respective countries all safe and sound.
August 17 at 10:21 EST .




   Gram77  Just saw breaking news on Lucianne. Apparently Lochte and 3 other swimmers were robbed at gun point while out celebrating. If in fact this is correct, I have to say I'm surprised that something like this took this long to happen. I've been looking around on the internet but can't find anything concrete. Maybe this will be on the evening news.

   Fireball27  Said to have been in a taxi that was stopped by people in police uniforms. Had a gun pressed against his forehead. Too bad they didn't try to rob the judo team!

   FlatCityGirl  I finally saw Bela Karolyi last night. I had wondered if he was even in Rio. He was on-screen for just a few brief moments in a pre-taped piece about the Final Five; whoever was narrating the piece mentioned Bela but that was all. He was smiling a big wide smile, just like always. He's lost a lot of weight, and I wonder if he's had health problems. His hair is whiter than ever.

   Gram77  I caught something on the television about an athlete being treated for sickness from the water in Rio. I think a rower but only caught part of it because I was in another room. I've been looking but am not very good at searching for information. Any one heard anything? The only other thing I happened across was on Lucianne where it was reported that lots of the food stands were running out of food due to large crowds. All this stuff is kept quiet but problems are bound to get out.

   FlatCityGirl  A Belgian woman who won a 2012 bronze medal has become sick, the first Olympic competitor to fall ill after sailing the polluted waters of Guanabara Bay.

Evi Van Acker reported feeling sick after Wednesday's races, the governing body World Sailing said. Her poor performances have put her at risk of missing out on a medal in the Laser Radial class.

Her coach told the Belgian VRT network he believes Van Acker contracted a severe intestinal infection while training in Rio de Janeiro last month.

   Gram77  Thanks to all who posted this information. It seems that Rio is not willing to accept the growing problem. Who does it think they are kidding as they continue to insist the water is safe? And the burning question from me, why did we award the Olympics to Brazil? It's no secret as to how 3rd world this country is. Excuse my bluster but these are my feelings.

   FlatCityGirl  Apparently the Green Diving Pool has been shut down while they try to get it back in chemical balance.

I'm still stunned that any Olympian would actually dive into that water.

It's like the nuclear tests in the desert years and years ago that no one thought were harmful until twenty years later 90% of the people present were dead from cancer.

No one can say for sure what's lurking in that water.

Waaaaay too much iffy stuff in Rio.

A day or two ago, there was a story about a couple of referees for one sport or another taking a wrong turn on the way to a venue, and turning in to slum area where they were fired on. The vehicle they were driving was riddled with bullet holes and one of the men was shot in the head. He was expected to live, thank goodness.

   Gram77  It's about 3:15pm and I am watching diving. That pool still has an odd color to it. In our younger days after moving to Florida we took a job for managing a condo building. Hubby was sent to school for training as to how to manage the correct chemical balance for the pool. It's been a long time since those days but he says he thinks there something way more than chemical imbalance wrong.
