Oh no no1 !!! Horrific !!!!!

So far, the authorities say it's not a terror attack.
Drugs certainly could be part of the problem.

A very preliminary report:

Even better. Great tip about the double batch.

I took two dishfuls to a friend's house for a small gathering and warmed it in her oven.

She said, "How will we keep it warm ???"

I said, "Don't worry - - it won't last that long !!!"

Before 10 minutes were up, eight of us were scraping the bottom of the baking dishes...

His final press conference was all A1 Class compared to the so-called (yell at the) Press Conference of last week! The differences are astronomical between the 2 men.

Barack Obama is an eloquent speaker and an elegant individual - - we can only hope to see more of the likes of him in future leaders !!!

President Obama's Final Word: 'We're Going to Be Okay'

In his final press conference, the commander-in-chief reasserted his faith in progress and the American project.

(quoting excerpts)

Barack Obama is the leader of the nation'™s progressive political party, but his belief in progress is more fundamental than a simple political label. "Hope" may have seemed a facile or even juvenile basis for a presidential campaign in 2008, but it was a sincere one, as Obama demonstrated one final time Wednesday afternoon in the final press conference of his presidency.

Speaking to reporters at the White House, he insisted that although the arc of history is long, passing even through a ...Trump presidency, it does bend toward Obama'™s vision of justice. This faith that there is a right side of history has been a hallmark of his term in office...
- - - - -
"I believe in this country. I believe in the American people," he said. "œI think we'™re going to be okay."
- - - - -
"The only thing that is the end of the world is the end of the world," he said.
- - - - -
But the president also offered a list of the issues on which he would feel compelled to speak out. It is customary for former commanders in chief to absent themselves from politics for a time and give their successors area to maneuver, but Obama has said he would not sit quietly while some of what he sees as core American values were undermined. He sketched out those bright lines on Wednesday: "systematic discrimination being ratified in some fashion"; any attempt to stifle dissent or the press; any effort to undermine the right to vote; or movement to deport undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children.

The first two of those are somewhat abstract, but the second two are not. There are already, and have been for years, efforts to make voting more difficult, generally justified as an anti-fraud measure. Obama pointedly dismissed claims of voter fraud as "fake news", nodding to the many studies that have failed to come up with any evidence of major fraud. The second was a cornerstone of Trump's campaign promise to deport illegal immigrants, which would seem to set up a collision between the two men, though Trump has since backed off on the question of children somewhat.

Just this weekend, Trump aides floated the idea of kicking White House reporters out of the West Wing and into an adjoining building. The president replied to that idea in a preface in which he praised the press, saying, "Having you in this building has made this place work better. It keeps us honest."

He also told them, "You're not supposed to be sycophants. You're supposed to be skeptics. You'™re supposed to ask me tough questions."

1) I should have mentioned: this is a healthier, naturally lower fat dip because of the Greek yogurt...most recipes are weighed down with varying amounts of cream cheese, mayonnaise and/or sour cream.

2) Folks dig in and gobble bigger scoops of this than you think they're going to...so unless I'm skimping on purpose, I generally make a double batch (why fiddle with half a can of artichoke hearts ???) I still use two smaller baking dishes, so they can be set out in different locations.

Another "Con/Trickery" film: David Mamet's "House of Games" starring Joe Mantegna and Lindsay Crouse.

Thanks for the memories. Yes, I remember him well. Henny Youngman was another great comedian. Our daughter saw episodes of "Laugh In" and didn't understand why we thought it was so funny. You had to be there.

Lenny Bruce, Don Rickles, Bob Hope, George Burns, Phyllis Diller, Mel Brooks ... Hmmmmm.

I was young enough when I first watched him that I thought his name Red Skeleton. He was in movies as well as his comedy skits. What a talent! Who can forget his miming a lady getting dressed?

I know, I know ... and "Macaroni" invented the radio, right ???
