Cinco de Mayo,
the 147th anniversary of a famous French military
victory. It's F.
A. Hayek's birthday, and Sixteen Candles came out 25 years
ago, er, yesterday. Which makes Molly Ringwald, errrrrr, yes, 41.
But at the White House yesterday, it was Cinco
de Cuatro. I guess it wasn't on the teleprompter.
It's T minus 2 days until Star Trek. (The official release date
is May 8, but the Strand in Dover NH
has a couple Thursday night shows, see you there.) Bide your time with
Manuals for the USS Enterprise". (It's Cracked, there's
one bad word.) Sample from the Bridge Regulations:
WARNING! All control consoles double as Firework Storage Lockers.
On detonation of fireworks, please leap dramatically to the floor and feign unconsciousness.
