    Heard Limbaugh on TV advising if you have chest pains go get professional help; don’t tough it out or ignore it. Supports my thesis that everbody gotta be right sometime.

    As an occasional commenter, I would like to point out that I am in no way related to Hewlett-Packard computers, or to the Harry Potter franchise. These are my actual initials that I’ve been using to sign brief notes and correspondences since the days when, if you wanted to leave a note for someone, you used pen and ink and hung the damn thing on the wall with a piece of adhesive tape. That’s right — I predate post-its.

    Of course, I am a racist to the extent that I have internalized the same racist assumptions as anyone who has spent most of their life in America. However, I checked on YouTube, and I am successfully able to track Black Desi’s face. Suck on that, Mssrs Hewlett and Packard!

    (I once had the idea to do a remake of The Shadow in which the crimefighting Shadow was not Lamont Cranston’s alter ego, but Lamont Cranston’s black butler, who would cloud men’s minds by standing in plain sight and pretending to look busy.)

    Don’t be daft. Limbaugh has no heart.
