Good evening, members of Club Zero. Surfing around DisqusLand, it looks like several more people have lost their upvotes and others are losing what they still have at a fairly steady to rapid pace.

So, the Senate Impeachment Trial of Donald J. Trump: My goodness, his defense team. You think these guys are clowns? Wait until Monday when the real Clown Show begins. I believe Trump’s “Made for Television” sect of his stellar legal team takes the Senate floor and will attempt to defend his Orange Ass.

Today in History:

1947:  Jan 25, American gangster Al Capone died of syphilis in Miami Beach, Fla., at age 48. While he was in prison at Alcatraz Capone composed a song titled “Madonna Mia,” and gave to Vincent Casey, a Jesuit priest, who had visited him regularly. In 2009 the song was produced and made available on CD.

Speaking of impeachment: January 26,  1998.
