Oh, IMAO isn’t running https either, and could begin generating security warnings as a result for those using Chrome. Unlike my situation, Frank J can enable https here, but it’ll be expensive. So go buy Frank J stuff, okay?
Right now, it’s Wednesday Night Open Thread. Your turn to pick the topic or topics to discuss.
Kurt Mueller, COO of The Onion, said that the network’s actions are “a clear infringement of The Onion’s intellectual property. This should be an open and shut case. After all, when news of Mr. Lee’s reassignment was announced, social media exploded with questions asking if it was a post on The Onion.” The topic was trending on Facebook and Twitter.
The Onion was joined in the lawsuit by news satire Websites Weekly World News, Babylon Bee, DuffleBlog, and others. Paul Szoldra of DuffleBlog explained, “While we focus on satirical news from the military standpoint, an infringement against mainstream humor is an infringement against us all.”
Weekly World News spokesman Bat Boy said “The lawsuit speaks for itself.” Babylon Bee’s Adam Ford added, “Yeah, what he said.”

Today’s was too far — check that, too much trouble — to travel the relatively short distance to get in the path of totality. So, I missed my second chance for a once-in-a-lifetime event. I have to make do with my first once-in-a-lifetime event from 47 years ago.
In case you wanted to watch an eclipse, best I can offer is this Eclipse, preceded by some Brain Damage.
