Drinking but not driving to Tom Maglliozzi aka either Click or Clack Tappet, who kept me and especially Stephanie company for uncounted Saturdays of errand-running and child-ferrying over many years.  Of Alzheimers.  Said brother Ray, in a statement, "Turns out he wasn't kidding -- he really couldn't remember last weeks puzzler."

Yes!  My son, who will be 31 next week, once told me that he considered 'Car Talk' to be the soundtrack of his childhood-- so many Saturday mornings driving him to Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, soccer games.....it was endless.  It's really sad to have such an institution fade away.

Thanks for posting the link. That's by far the best assessment of Marion Barry I've read since his death. The comments to it are largely disgusting, unfortunately. Here's to Mr. Barry's memory, such as it is. I've lived with him for a very long time.

I just saw that.  How awfully sad.  I hadn't realized he was the person hit in that accident. He and his wife have been really important to the civic life of Capitol Hill for a long time.

 

(It's also mentioned here, for people who get anti-virus alerts going to that other site.  I don't what the problem is, as it's a legitimate site.  At some point a while back, I started to get virus warnings every time I went there. I ignore them, maybe at my own peril.)
