1932: The Lindbergh baby

leave a comment »

It was the kidnap of kidnaps!   Perhaps the crime of the century!

On this day in 1932, the most famous baby in the US was kidnapped.  He was 20-months old and his disappearance was a front page story for a long time

On May 12, 1932, the police found the body of the Lindbergh baby.  Most experts believe that he died the night of the kidnapping.

We remember Glenn Miller (1904-44)

leave a comment »

We remember that Glenn Miller was born in Iowa on this day in 1904.   He tragically disappeared over The English Channel December 1944.   His plane was lost in route to Paris, where he was going to play for the troops that had just liberated France. 

We don’t know much about his disappearance but there are some reports that Miller’s small plane may have been hit by RAF bombers dropping their bombs into the waters of channel, or the “friendly fire” theory.  In other words, he was at the wrong place at the wrong time.   

He left a huge collection of songs now available on digital.

The ‘what’s my line’ primary

leave a comment »

As you may know, Senator Kamala Harris is running for president and dashing to the left fast.   

Reality may be catching up with the lady senator, as we see in this report:    

When Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) came out on Tuesday in favor of decriminalizing prostitution, she failed to mention that she had opposed it her entire career.

Harris most publicly opposed the idea of decriminalizing the oldest profession in 2008, when she called a proposal to do so in San Francisco “completely ridiculous” and argued it “would put a welcome mat out for pimps and prostitutes.” She rejected the notion that prostitution was a “victimless crime,” the New York Times reported, and said it “compromises the quality of life in a community.”

But in her Tuesday interview with The Root, she said she supports decriminalizing prostitution and explicitly said it was because it is often victimless.

Well, I am not sure about the victimless part.  It may be true that a high-rent call girl is a willing participant.  However, I am not sure that a lot of young women engaging in prostitution are truly willing. 

Nevertheless, the issue here is Senator Harris.  She appears to be afraid of having once enforced California law.  She seems to be saying “never mind” that I once put people in jail for violating the law.

The whole story speaks volumes about what is happening in the Democratic Party.  They are so indebted to the left that they have to recreate themselves to win the nomination.  We can call it the “What’s my line” primary!

I can’t wait for Senator Harris to defend these reversals in an upcoming debate with VP Mike Pence.
