There are only two kinds of men in the world.
Men who freeze their leftovers and men who don’t. The men who don’t freeze their leftovers tend to dine out often, have limited skills and like having things done for them. These are the same kinds of men that when you ask them to wash the dishes they say something like “…ooohh, I’m not very good and this and not sure I’ll be able to wash them so they are clean.” The kinds of men that you need to wave off and do the job yourself.
But the men who do freeze their leftovers are a different animal. if othing else, we eventually are tempted to make soup. And when we succeed there is higher life-form eolved on the earth.
I know I’m old because Dodger Stadium is now the third oldest stadium in baseball. I remember Ebbetts Field, forget about the Coliseum. So now the dodgers are aspiring to Wrigley and Fenway status. This has been a long time coming.

Movie Night at the Group Rep
Movies you’d be embarrassed to admit you’d watch by yourself but it’s okay when you’re with a larger group of so-inclined individuals.

Now you name a few….
First of all, Rod Rosenstein is walking down the courtroom steps wearing tails. It’s hard to believe but it is true. We usually see him in a closeup so we don’t have the extra vision of seeing the “whole” Rod Rosenstein. But go ahead, go back, pull the shots back into a medium shot and you will see that Rod Rosenstein is dressed in tails, like he’s going to his daughter’s bat miztvah.
But he’s wearing tails! Come on….
Anyone speculating that Rod Rosenstein might be a shill for the Democrats is out of their minds. A Jew walking down courtroom steps dressed in tails is absolutely 100% Republican.
I don’t have any photos of Amanda. We were together from 1968 to sometime in 1972.
She was a VW bus. You know the kind. The ones that showed up in every photo you’ve ever seen of Woodstock. Amanda actually went to Woodstock. i went with her. So did Walt and Carolyn and Wally the Mean Water Pistol Man.
That’s actually a lie. It really wasn’t 73 people. I don’t know how many people it was. It was plenty! I sort of remember the number 70-something; maybe 73, maybe 72, maybe 78. It was a bunch. It wasn’t 100 but telling the story gets very cluttered when I say all that…so when I get to that line in the story I say, “It was 73 people.” No ambiguity. Very clean and straight. It’s better that way. But it’s not the truth. i don’t know the truth. I don’t care. It’s better storytelling.
Now that I think of it, I’m gonna start saying “78 people.”
Larry Eisenberg’s LOOSE NEWS NEWS
Years ago, in the days of mimeographs and typewriters, I published a sort of newsletter with about 200 subscribers. This lasted for about a year and frankly it was fun.
