The Editor:  Isn’t that Nike’s thirty  ( 30 )  year old motto/slogan LL ?

Barefoot Cat:  It sure is, Nike signed the Kaepernick guy to be their spokes person ( the one who doesn’t stand for the National Anthem ).

I hope the decision doesn’t cost any Americans their jobs.  There are many shoe and athletic wear companies out there.  One that doesn’t use child slave labor in Asia is  NEW BALANCE.   New Balance is made in America and The United Kingdom.…0.0..0.110.1137.10j2……0….1..gws-wiz.5VqAGAan3QY

We have a contest for the new motto/slogan.   Send yours to our comment section.  These are already suggested.

Just Burn It—Just Toss It—Just Buy Others—and many more.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Along the Western Veil

Explanation: Delicate in appearance, these filaments of shocked, glowing gas, are draped across planet Earth’s sky toward the constellation of Cygnus. They form the western part of the Veil Nebula. The Veil Nebula itself is a large supernova remnant, an expanding cloud born of the death explosion of a massive star. Light from the original supernova explosion likely reached Earth over 5,000 years ago. Blasted out in the cataclysmic event, the interstellar shock wave plows through space sweeping up and exciting interstellar material. The glowing filaments are really more like long ripples in a sheet seen almost edge on, remarkably well separated into atomic hydrogen (red) and oxygen (blue-green) gas. Also known as the Cygnus Loop, the Veil Nebula now spans nearly 3 degrees or about 6 times the diameter of the full Moon. While that translates to over 70 light-years at its estimated distance of 1,500 light-years, this telescopic two panel mosaic image of the western portion spans about half that distance. Brighter parts of the western Veil are recognized as separate nebulae, including The Witch’s Broom (NGC 6960) along the top of this view and Pickering’s Triangle (NGC 6979) below and left.
