The Editor:  Are you OK, LL ?  Do you need some time off ?

Psycho Cat:  The liberals and Democrats have driven me crazy.  I want a work caused sabbatical.  I would jump off the roof, but I would land on my feet.  Don’t send me to Mount Sinai.

TE:  Maybe you need a stress pill.

It’s Greek To Me Cat:  Check out the latest acronym GLBTQIA’s.  Instead of saying what’s your sign, singles say how many letters are in your acronym.  In California they ask if you have electricity.

A great saying is, ( politics makes strange bedfellows ).  Everything but sleeping her way to promotions with Willie Brown was mentioned as why Kamala lost.

This saying is adapted from a line in the play The Tempest, by William Shakespeare: “Misery acquaints a man with strange bedfellows.” It is spoken by a man who has been shipwrecked and finds himself seeking shelter beside a sleeping monster.

TE:  Can you play a Rhythm & Blues song for a loyal reader, IGTMC ?

I sure can, here are two.

N63A: Supernova Remnant in Visible and X-ray

Explanation: What has this supernova left behind? As little as 2,000 years ago, light from a massive stellar explosion in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) first reached planet Earth. The LMC is a close galactic neighbor of our Milky Way Galaxy and the rampaging explosion front is now seen moving out – destroying or displacing ambient gas clouds while leaving behind relatively dense knots of gas and dust. What remains is one of the largest supernova remnants in the LMC: N63A. Many of the surviving dense knots have been themselves compressed and may further contract to form new stars. Some of the resulting stars may then explode in a supernova, continuing the cycle. Featured here is a combined image of N63A in the X-ray from the Chandra Space Telescope and in visible light by Hubble. The prominent knot of gas and dust on the upper right — informally dubbed the Firefox — is very bright in visible light, while the larger supernova remnant shines most brightly in X-rays. N63A spans over 25 light years and lies about 150,000 light years away toward the southern constellation of Dorado.
