Almost daily, we see photos of our man in the White House holding up documents he’s signed, his facial expression mimicking the proud glee of a toddler holding up the handprint he made for Mother’s Day.Reader James Brzezinski, whose challenging name may have led to a lifelong interest in names and signatures, has studied the presidential signature on the letter in which FBI Director James Comey was fired, for example, and is thinking that the president signs with the ancient family name that preceded Trump:Wieder’s suggested picks for Comey’s replacement include: the president’s daughter Tiffany Trump (“just accepted to Georgetown law school”); Mike Flynn (“has ‘lock her up’ tattoo”); actor Mark Harmon ( “‘NCIS’ consistently No. 1 in the ratings”); Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner ( “still has Tuesdays open”); Joe Arpaio (“‘se habla’ this”); and Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte (“makes Arpaio look like Pope Francis”).The Art and Poetry of Resistance at the Museum of International Propaganda in San Rafael, Patrick Gannon noticed a meter minder about to ticket his car.The parking enforcer asked if the car with a “Facts Matter” bumper sticker was his and then added, “I bet in this case you’ll hope that the facts don’t matter, eh?” She didn’t ticket the car.[...] Kevon Cottrell, who just watched the 2000 movie “American Psycho,” reports that 16 minutes into it, the lead character, who seems to be a wealthy up-and-comer, asks, “Isn’t that Trump’s car?” Later, he spots Ivana Trump.The movie, based on the Bret Easton Ellis novel, was known for its gruesome depiction of a serial killer.[...] according to an appraisal in Rolling Stone magazine, “At its heart, ‘American Psycho’ is a caustic satire about materialism and the empty feeling that comes with chasing it.”When Bernadette Peters sang “Am I Losing My Mind?,” “Send in the Clowns” and “Children Will Listen” at the Palace of Fine Arts on Saturday, May 13, Billy Cook and Julian Grant wondered if “she was offering subliminal commentary about current events in Washington.”In keeping with that, Will Durst, whose new show, “Durst Case Scenario,” opens in July at the Marsh, is wondering whether “this whole thing might be a plot by the pharmaceutical industry to sell more Xanax.”Mark Davis sent photos of an installation in which a neighbor had used a front fence to create a Mother Guilt Depository.

- Sword belonging to commander of black Civil War unit found
By MARK PRATT, Associated Press - Sunday Jul 16, 2017
BOSTON (AP) — The sword that belonged to the commanding officer of the first all-black regiment raised in the North during the U.S. Civil War has been recovered after being lost to history for more than 150 years.The British-made sword carried into battle by Col. Robert Gould Shaw was stolen after he was killed during the 54th Massachusetts Voluntary Infantry's doomed attack on Fort Wagner, South Carolina, in 1863, a battle portrayed in the 1989 Oscar-winning movie "Glory."Society President Dennis Fiori called it the "holy grail of Civil War swords."After Shaw — who, like all officers in black units, was white — was killed, his body was stripped of clothing and belongings by Confederate soldiers.The sword was recovered about two years later from a Confederate officer shortly after the war ended and returned to his parents in Boston.
- ‘Game of Thrones': Tracking Every Valyrian Steel Sword We Know Of
By Phil Owen, provided by
- Sunday Jul 16, 2017
Spoiler Alert: some plot details from the May 29 episode of “Game of Thrones” are below.In the present day of “Game of Thrones,” nobody knows how to create new Valyrian steel, since that knowledge went up in smoke with the rest of Valyria when it was destroyed in the Doom hundreds of years ago.[...] Valyrian steel is an incredibly rare commodity and swords made from it are going to play a key role in the future of Westeros and the rest of the world.With that in mind, let’s take a look at the Valyrian steel swords we’ve seen so far on the show, as well as those swords that have been referenced in the books that could also make an appearance at some point.Though humanity has lost the knowledge of how to forge a Valyrian steel sword from scratch, a few men remain who are able to reforge new Valyrian steel swords from existing ones.Tywin gave this one to Joffrey as a wedding gift, but after Joffrey died the sword passed to his younger brother Tommen.[...] Tyrion lost it, apparently because his sister Cersei stole it and gave it to the previously mentioned hired assassin to finish off Bran before he could awake from his coma — a coma that Jaime had put him in after Bran saw Jaime and Cersei having sex in Winterfell.There are other Valyrian steel weapons mentioned in the novels, but they belong to characters who haven’t appeared on the show, so they probably won’t factor into this.
