THE SPHINX—-NATIONAL OFFICE HOLDER BENEFITS

Sphinx Main
The Editor:  Is Amigo in charge on Cumberland, Lois ?

Reporter Cat:   He is the president.

The Editor:  Does he fly himself, his family, thirty cars, three planes, and a hundred other flunkies all over the world at the cost of hundreds of million dollars.

Muckraker Cat:   Shucks no,  we have a balanced budget, no ifs, ands, or buts.  If any public employee tried that stunt on Cumberland this would be their, their families, their friends, and their pets fate.

The Editor:   Amigo wouldn’t want the pomp and ceremony of a great leader ?

Juan Valdez Cat:  No, all he wants is respect and a cup of coffee.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

A Milky Way Dawn
Image Credit & Copyright: Babak Tafreshi (TWAN), ESO Ultra HD Expedition

Explanation: As dawn broke on March 27, the center of the Milky Way Galaxy stood almost directly above the European Southern Observatory’s Paranal Observatory. In the dry, clear sky of Chile’s Atacama desert, our galaxy’s dusty central bulge is flanked by Paranal’s four 8 meter Very Large Telescope units in this astronomical fisheye view. Along the top, Venus is close to the eastern horizon. The brilliant morning star shines very near a waning crescent Moon just at the edge of one of the telescope structures. Despite the bright pairing in the east, the Milky Way dominates the scene though. Cut by dust lanes and charged with clouds of stars and glowing nebulae, the center of our galaxy sprawls across the darker zenith even as the deep blue sky grows brighter and buildings still glint in moonlight.
