According to one commenter, the stabbing interrupted a wonderful dinner of mahi mahi and couscous.

Actually, he was stabbed by a fellow inmate in prison.

I was kinda surprised to realize he’s still alive, a walking relic from the history books, because if Bobby had not been assassinated, he would almost certainly be dead by now. (Although you never know. He would be 93. His mother lived to be about a thousand.)

The Bobby Kennedy assassination occurred more than 50 years ago. That seems like the dimly-remembered past. About 3/4 of the people on earth were not born yet.

The report gave Comey a stern rebuke. He violated both FBI policy and his employment agreement by not turning over some memos when he was fired and later by leaking details of the memos to the media. 

It is worth noting, however:

  • “None of the information shared by him or his attorneys with anyone in the media was classified.”
  • He did not break any laws.

Although he committed no crimes, he could be sued in civil court for violation of his employment contract, and would almost certainly lose, although the FBI has declined to pursue that course.

Her daughter, Gwyneth Paltrow, inherited her beauty, but not her proportions. Blythe had, as they say, a helluva rack on ‘er. This scene is from Lovin’ Molly (1974), as she shows her fun stuff to ol’ Norman Bates. As I recall, Mr. Perkins was not really inclined to appreciate feminine pulchritude when he was a young man, but by the time this was lensed, he had decided to try sex with women. He was about 40 when he had his first heterosexual experience, and seemed to like it enough to marry a woman two years later. He married the younger sister of Marisa Berenson, fathered two sons by her, and remained with her for some two decades, until his death.

About a decade after Perkins died, his widow died in the 9-11 attacks. She was aboard AA flight 11, which crashed into the North Tower.

Anyway, back to Blythe …

I have always been lukewarm at best toward Gwyneth Paltrow, but I had such a crush on her mom!
