Animal’s Hump Day News

Happy Hump Day!

OK. I’m a little embarrassed about this, as I’ve long said it’s something I would never do, although at least Elon Musk’s remake has  made things a little more tolerable, but…

Yeah. I’m on Twitter.

I did it mostly to keep up with my RedState colleagues and to stay abreast of the fire-hose of information that is the American socio-political scene, so as to gain more things to write about.  But boy howdy, does the noise-to-signal ratio ever suck.  Anyway, toss me a follow if you like, I’ll reciprocate, and maybe we’ll see the odd pearl here and there.

Now then…

On To the Links!

More signs of this being a social contagion.

Oops.

This Week’s Cultural Edification:

When I went to Army Basic Training at Ft. Dix, New Jersey, the great classic movie Stripes had left theaters but was still making the rounds on the cable networks (remember cable TV?)  So, of course, when the drill sergeants were in the mood to permit it, we always sang Manfred Mann’s Do Wah Diddy Diddy when we were marching.  Like this:

The original, of course, was originally released by a vocal band called The Exciters, but the best-known version (by me, at least) was done by Manfred Mann’s Earth Band, released in 1964 on a single 45RPM opposite What You Gonna Do?  It’s a fun little tune from my childhood.  Here’s the Manfred Mann version; enjoy.
