The Raspberries — Go All The Way on The Mike Douglas Show, 1974.
What’s on your mind?
wow, 6 minutes and I still got the zed!
Seattle Friday morning. Had a tech screen with another company today with offices in Seattle too.
It’s been hard for people to log in; this is the first time I’ve been able to access FDL in hours. Suzanne said there have been tech. problems off and on all day. Another denial of service attack?
Best of luck on your job hunting.
Ferguson: I’ve been beating a drum about someone that should be speaking right now – Joseph McNamara. He started as a beat cop NYPD – Harlem. Along the arc of his career he got a PhD, was Chief of Police in Kansas City, then San Jose California where he successfully reformed a cowboy culture. He’s currently at the Hoover Institution.
He can be contacted via this website I contacted him after the flash bang grenade used by the Atlanta PD put a 2 year old in a coma and the ACLU sent an alert on demilitarizing police. He could use some respectful contacts urging him to cement his place in history as a cop that said “no more”. He walked the walk in San Jose, and his country really needs him today.
Esteemed fellow Firepups, I bring news from Suz, who says thusly:
“can ya let the pups know that i’m stuck in a nsa loop from hell and still can’t get in……….
“traditional one finger lln salutes in the direction of my nsa monitors (and a delivery of the special — not magic but special — brownies with exlax as the ‘chocolate’ to the forkers in the white van would maybe help clear my tubes)”
I’m heading for bed. Suz should corroborate McNamara’s value as a former cop with the gravitas and record to make a difference right now. Which is why I’m instigating a campaign to push him to do what he likely is already thinking of doing.
Well, gang, I’m gonna sign off too — maybe others will show up later. An odd night at the Lake.
Mahalo, bw, for delivering Suz’s messsage…! It’s been pretty wacky all day too…!
Okay, coast clear. Apparently we’ll all need to restructure our activities to midnight and later when the Instigators go to bed. Not a problem on my end. I just finished making 4 dozen crab egg rolls for the freezer, because Harvest Is.
Good morning Suzanne and Token.
Choppy at the lake all day and into a long night! Hang on, firepups!
