    It’s “Conners” not “Connors.” They spelled it wrong.

    Mike Pompeo won’t get on with John Bolton. I don’t mean policy or strategy. Bolton is a snob. He bullies people.

      Turkish army and airforce began their invasion of northern Kurdish Iraq today. Damn Trojans. Can’t believe we still have an AFB in Turkey.

        Did you read the subsequent tweets? It was like walking into the mouth of hell. Finally people started calling her out on her racist and utterly pompous initial tweet.
        Either that or I’ve had a brain freeze and can no longer read and understand my native language. Or both.

      The “erudite” comments make no mention of any African, Egyptian, or Mesopotamian equivalents of Plato or Aristotle.

      Ouch. Right in the kisser.

    • John Denney says:

      Ah, the old “the Constitution says blacks are only 3/5ths of a person” trope.
      It was for determining representation. If they had counted slaves as whole persons, it would have given slave states more representation in Congress, though of course the slaves’ interests would not be represented.

    Love Roseanne ! I think it’s TVLand that marathons each season of the vintage shows on Saturdays. I hope this does well, Rosie would never be a Hillary supporter 😉

    Poor stupid kids

      Also says Trump was in the 30s until Stormy and the playmate, and now at 42. He wonders how many more porn starts will it take to get Trump to 50. He’s thinking 3 more.

    So did anyone watch Roseanne? I decided to DVR it just in case life got busy and I missed it. I had no idea the horrors that would soon unfold. My neighbor down the street committed suicide with her 11 year old daughter in the house.😢

    I’m not in the mood to watch it right now, maybe I’ll watch it tomorrow evening.

    I was just wondering if you all watched it and what you thought.

    • mothy2017 says:

      It was very good.
      So sorry about neighbor.

    • swanspirit says:

      O my goddess, Somebody, I am so sorry, and sorry for that child. Sending hugs to you, and prayers for the family.
      I watched it Roseanne, it was pretty good, I thought. Nothing earthshaking, but not bad.

    • DandyTIger says:

      Shit, sorry to hear that.

    • lyn says:

      That’s so sad.

    • lateblum says:

      Oh, Somebody. How tragic. I’m so sorry the mom was so desperate and in despair that she believed this was the only way to manage her life. And for the child – what she must be going through. I hope she doesn’t blame herself. I also hope the neighborhood is supportive of the girl
      As for Roseanne… It was the first time I’ve actually sat through an episode. It was very funny. I hope when you actually watch it, you enjoy yourself.

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      I am truly sorry for your neighbor and for that young girl. And for you and your neighbors and the family. It is always such a shock. She will need support from all quarters. My one cousin was the only one in the house when his mother lovely and talented (artist) decided to listen to the voices and leave this this world. He found her. My parents stepped in to provide support when his dad (my mothers half brother) just closed the house and left town leaving the kids off at a church. I was a baby at the time but after my dad passed I became the one my cousins would talk to when memories would flood back. Fortunately my parents had told me the truth when I asked questions when I was young so I had some background.

      • Somebody says:

        My heart breaks for the child too. This wasn’t mom’s first attempt, she’s been hospitalized multiple times over the past several years.

        The husband died unexpectedly about 8 years ago during gallbladder surgery. Jane lost it and never recovered. Her older daughter basically raised her little sister and took care of her mom too. Older daughter went off to college this year and things haven’t been good. Jane for several weeks wandered around the streets in her PJ’s at odd hours of the day and night. Then vanished for a couple months (committed again). Home 2 weeks and this.

        Jane has 2 sisters each within a couple of hours. They’ve each lived here off and on caring for the kids when Jane was hospitalized. They will take good care of the little one I’m sure.

        I am thankful that the 11 year old was unable to get the door open to check on her mom and called a neighbor. The neighbor pried the bathroom door open. The little girl (C) knows, but she was kept away and didn’t see anything, although clearly she heard.

        It is tragic, that poor child has been through so much. Like I said this wasn’t the 1st time, just that she was successful this time after many attempts. So GD selfish to put your child through that 😞

          My best friend in the world, when I was growing up, was Margie, and we were the same age. Margie’s mom died of a heart attack, when we were 14. It was awful, and it wasn’t even a suicide.
          My uncle Albert, on my mother’s side, committed suicide with a gun, but the kids, my cousins Patti Ann and Joanne were adults when it happened. Still, devastating for the whole extended family. My mother was shaken to the core, and everyone blamed themselves in some way, for a while.
          I hope your friends child gets the support she needs, and most of all, absolutely make sure she knows it wasn’t her fault. And more hugs for you, I am sorry you lost your friend.

            We were neighbors and I was polite, helpful, etc., but we weren’t running buddies. I know the daughters more than I know the mom because the little one would be outside playing, rode the bus etc. The older one was a year ahead of my daughter in school and BFF with the girl that used to live next door. Both girls are super sweet kids.

            Jane was only chummy with one person on the street. I got along with and chatted with one of her sisters who has had to take over more than her.

            I never knew her husband, he passed away within the first couple of weeks after they moved in. We were out of town during those 3 weeks, never met him. Apparently he and my husband favored.

            I never said a cross word to her, she clearly had mental problems, but she was uncomfortable to be around if my husband was nearby. She would stare at him, ask him to hug her or hold her, help with her daughters, things like that. It made my husband really uncomfortable, he avoided her.

            In fact when the house next door was foreclosed and went up for sale she tried to buy it, but was outbid, thank god. She told me and other neighbors she knew he wasn’t her husband but it would make her happier and more comfortable living so close to him.

            So we weren’t close, but that doesn’t mean I wished her any harm. We all talked to the police last night, tried to make the little one as comfortable as possible until family could get here. Police made her leave house, but wouldn’t let her go in another house or anything, so she was just out front. Social services has to approve anything like that and they took forever to get here. In fact one neighbor tried to call the older daughter and police told her to hang up the phone NOW! He said they would make sure family was notified through official channels. They wanted professionals at the university to tell her. I suppose he was right, but that delayed the time in limbo for the little one.

      What a terrible terrible thing. I’m so sorry, and I hope you all find a way forward.

    • Island Girl says:

      Awful…you are one tough soul. 🤬

    • Anthony says:

      Omg, so sorry to hear that. Terrible news and shocking for e everyone. My prayers for you and her children

      • Somebody says:

        Thanks Anthony. My heart breaks for the kids, they’ve already been through so much. I’m not sure what the future holds for them so prayers for them are appreciated, especially the 11 year old.

        I don’t know what will happen to her. Will her sister leave college and move back home to raise her? Will she be sent to her brother’s home in SC? Will she live with one of her Aunt’s? I guess the state will decide.

        • elliesmom says:

          If the family can work it out, the state will stay out of it. My parents took in two nephews after they each lost a sister. A social worker visited the house for less than an hour to make sure my parents were “suitable”, and the adoptions went quickly. If other family members had fought my folks for custody, the state might have had to step in, but everyone was agreeable. There wasn’t any inherited or insurance money involved, and my parents were assuming the cost of raising the kids. My folks were in the best position to take them, and no one argued with them. When there isn’t a lot of money that comes with the kid, most families are capable of working things out amicably. It’s money that brings out the worst in people.

          • Somebody says:

            Well there is money involved here. Life insurance money from the husband and a large malpractice settlement. The husband’s death was due to an anesthesia screw up, which was compounded by mistakes and inaction. Mom insured herself to the hilt too after hubby passed away or so she said.

            I don’t know the nitty gritty, but they weren’t hurting financially as far as I know. Although years of psych treatment and hospitalization I’m sure cost a lot. She also wasn’t smart with money. She never found a car she liked. She’d buy one and 6 months later buy something else. She did the same with her daughter, the older one is 19 and has had 5 different brand new cars not by her choice. It annoyed her just the time she’d get comfortable with a car her mom would get her a different one

            Like I said Jane had a lot of issues. I assume there is a will, but I don’t know that.

        • Anthony says:

          This is just terrible. I hope the family steps in rather than put her into the foster care system. Pro tip: Stay inside for a few weeks if you think your heart is too big…

      prayers for that poor kid

    OK, be jealous! I just had the most fabulous home cooked Korean dinner, the first course so far; prepared by a lovely Korean lady visiting from out of state. I am not even sure what I just ate, with the exception of the dried anchovies and seafood based soup, but it was incredibly delicious.
    I am jealous, and I ate it! Absolutely amazing.

    I told my DVR to record the series.
