Explanation: Distorted galaxy NGC 2442 can be found in the southern constellation of the flying fish, (Piscis) Volans. Located about 50 million light-years away, the galaxy’s two spiral arms extending from a pronounced central bar have a hook-like appearance in wide-field images. But this mosaicked close-up, constructed from Hubble Space Telescope and European Southern Observatory data, follows the galaxy’s structure in amazing detail. Obscuring dust lanes, young blue star clusters and reddish star forming regions surround a core of yellowish light from an older population of stars. The sharp image data also reveal more distant background galaxies seen right through NGC 2442’s star clusters and nebulae. The image spans about 75,000 light-years at the estimated distance of NGC 2442.

This is a busy news few days.  First is the Endeavor/Dragon X leaving and returning to Earth.


This is unbelievable.  Vote Democratic.  Your children are next.


The Clinton–Maxwell diaries.


If you want to get peace with the liberals do like they want the New York Times to do.  Nike, MLB, NBA, NFL, Disney, ATT, Comcast, CBS, CNN, NBC, Amazon, Washington Post, and all of The Federal Reserve Banks should replace their White millionaire board members with minorities–just like the following article.  Let’s see the board members resign and show some diversity.


The Replacement Editor:  What is the big deal, LL ?

The Fixer Cat:  I’m helping Warner Brothers solve a problem.  Ellen has a big contract and no place to go.

She has some deficiencies in her show.  Sure, just like Obama had some deficiencies in his Presidency.  Everyone is under investigation except the stupid dog that Ted ( Chappaquiddick ) Kennedy gave him.

TRE:  What can she do, TFC ?  She is rude, crude, impolite, obnoxious, discourteous, repulsive, hates almost everyone, has bad manners, and is unable to act in social situations.

If she can keep these traits a few hours a day, when in public view, she can be a Democratic Congresswoman.  Ole Nancy will die on the job, like several of her peers,  she doesn’t have much time left.  Maxine Waters is also getting too old to shout I hate America.  There are a bunch of possibilities.  She will just have to wear a Kunta Kinte cloth once every forty years and high heel shoes when she is over eighty years old.

The Democrats will help her promote the GLBTQIA agenda along with teaching anal sex and homosexuality to five year old children.  Oh, I almost forgot the age of consent being lowered to twelve ( 12 ) years old, and support of NAMBLA.

TRE:  She should be cautious with her new salary.  If she isn’t careful the above board money might run out, even for a crook.
