THE SPHINX–PATRIOTIC ATHLETES AND OTHER THINGS

The Editor:  It’s about time that you celebrated the quarterback making 15 million a year for not standing during the national anthem, LL.

You Bet Cat:   I’m working my way up to his lofty position.  In the meantime here is a real hero.  Who knows what his record would have been if he hadn’t missed 5 years fighting America’s real enemies.

California can’t patrol its parks.   Drone planes can even detect body heat.  I guess sanctuary states accept the poison the illegals bring.

The Wedding Text

 

A father texts his son: “My dear son, today is a day you will treasure for all the days of your life. My best love and good wishes. Your Father.”

His son texts back: “Thanks Dad. But the wedding isn’t actually until tomorrow!”

His Father replies: “I know.”

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Night of the Perseids

Explanation: This weekend, meteors will rain down near the peak of the annual Perseid Meteor Shower. Normally bright and colorful, the Perseid shower meteors are produced by dust swept up by planet Earth from the orbit of Comet Swift-Tuttle. They streak from a radiant in Perseus, above the horizon in clear predawn skies. Despite interfering light from August’s waning gibbous moon, this year’s Perseids will still be enjoyable, especially if you can find yourself in an open space, away from city lights, and in good company. Frames used in this composite view capture bright Perseid meteors from the 2016 meteor shower set against a starry background along the Milky Way, with even the faint Andromeda Galaxy just above center. In the foreground, astronomers of all ages have gathered on a hill above the Slovakian village of Vrchtepla.
