Open post: Nothing new

Nothing new here. I had hoped to have a Clinton-era An Historic Guide waiting for me, but the Ebay seller is a bit slow. I just ordered the Gary Walters interview from C-SPAN and a White House music documentary called In Tune With History, which hopefully will have something new. I’m holding out for photos of Chester Arthur playing the banjo.

  1. Chester Arthur and Francis Benjamin Johnston as a duo, playing the Orpheum Circuit? I’m sure they would’ve played South Bend… The famous Pre-Vaudeville team of Arthur and Johnston…

    Yep, it’s a slow news day, alright!

  2. Kinda off topic, but you should put up a picture of the annual egg roll on the front page for this weekend

  3. Derek, I like that photo of the Kennedy Master Bedroom on the front page. It tones down the blue green of those drapes, and I like the fade you did into the text.

    John, it’s snowing here. IN DALLAS in April. Next thing I know you’ll be telling me it’s snowing in NOLA.

  4. Halcyondays – Snowing in Dallas in April! Amazing! Dallas was our local Big City when we lived in Shrevepit – ur, I mean Shreveport, La. – for a few years when I was a kid. Have they finished Dallas yet? No, not snowing here, but it is bloody cold – 45 degrees (you can stop laughing most any time now, Derek…). Dang! – now I’ll have to drag out my winter clothes again…

    My wild and crazy professor friend from “Penn”, in Philadelphia is in town, so I have to go be Katrina Tourguide. He has a thing for New Orleans cemeteries – especially St Louis No. 1 – where poor Benjamin Latrobe is buried. Latrobe died here in 1820, when he came to town to supervise the construction of our Water Works. Yellow Fever got him. We’re hoping that Corps of Engineers will have those waterworks finshed soon…

    Actually, a pic of the Easter Egg Roll would be nice somewhere on the site – I may have a pic of Carl Rove dressed up in a Bunny Suit on the South Lawn…
