The Editor:   Is the USS George Washington being renamed the Al Gutter Rat Sharpton,  and getting a tune-up, LL ?

Anchors Away Cat:   She is getting an overhaul. The renaming is on the Democratic to-do list, right after increasing the Supreme Court members to 44.

TE:  Is it true that President Trump is the only national leader preventing a break-down of society, AAC ?

For Sure Cat:  It sure is true.  It is a tough job, restoring one system of Justice, enforcing laws, and finding honest government employees who have morals.

Can you imagine if there is no creator and the highest power on Earth is any government, local, state, or federal.

TE:  Is it true that Google loves children, AAC ?

I’m Sorry Cat:  They sure do, this fine is like five dollars for a regular person.  They lie more than a Progressive Democrat.

The Large Cloud of Magellan

Explanation: The 16th century Portuguese navigator Ferdinand Magellan and his crew had plenty of time to study the southern sky during the first circumnavigation of planet Earth. As a result, two fuzzy cloud-like objects easily visible to southern hemisphere skygazers are known as the Clouds of Magellan, now understood to be satellite galaxies of our much larger, spiral Milky Way galaxy. About 160,000 light-years distant in the constellation Dorado, the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) is seen here in a remarkably deep, colorful, image. Spanning about 15,000 light-years or so, it is the most massive of the Milky Way’s satellite galaxies and is the home of the closest supernova in modern times, SN 1987A. The prominent patch below center is 30 Doradus, also known as the magnificent Tarantula Nebula, a giant star-forming region about 1,000 light-years across.

Today’s Accidental Invention…Post-it Note

As the Post-it website tells it, 3M scientist Dr. Spencer Silver was doing research on strong adhesives when he came across quite the opposite: one that “stuck lightly to surfaces but didn’t bond tightly to them.” Silver initially had no idea what to do with his discovery, but years later another 3M scientist, Art Fry, came to him with the idea to create a bookmark that could stick to paper without damaging it. Eventually, that bookmark became the Post-it note.
