CHURCHILL AND FDR PLOT ATTACK IN 1943

See the source image

On May 19, 1943, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (left)
and U.S.  U.S.
President Franklin Roosevelt
(right) set a date for
the
cross-Channel 
landing that would become D-Day, May 1, 1944 
but, that date would prove a bit premature, as
bad weather
became
a factor.


Addressing a joint session of Congress, Churchill warned that the
real danger at present was the “dragging-out of the war at enormous expense” because of the risk that the Allies would become “tired or bored or split”—and play into the hands of Germany and Japan. He pushed for an early and massive attack on the “underbelly of the
Axis.”

AN AMERICAN ICON TO RETURN NEXT YEAR

CRANSTON, R.I. (TND) — It’s official: after Ringling Bros. and
Barnum and Bailey Circus
shut down in 2017, it will be returning.


Ringling’s website notes opening night is planned for September
2023.

The iconic traveling circus halted performances after more than
140 years in operation due to dwindling ticket sales and years
of controversy for its continued use of animal in performers. The
announcement was made Wednesday.

The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus show dates back
to the mid-1800s when Phineas Taylor Barnum joined forces with
the five Ringling brothers to create the modern circus. They ended
the show’s legendary run in New York on May 21, 2017.

OFFICIAL WORD FROM FBI ON SONGS LYRICS

See the source image

Based on outcry from parents who bought into what may have
started as an idle rumor, the
FBI launched a formal investigation
in 1964 into the supposedly pornographic lyrics of the song
“Louie, Louie.” recorded by The Kingsmen.  That investigation
finally neared its conclusion on May 17, 1965, when the FBI
Laboratory declared the lyrics of “Louie Louie”, as sung by the
bands singer Jack Ely (below), to be officially … unintelligible.

Jack Brown Ely (September 11, 1943 – April 28, 2015)


Ely’s famously incoherent vocals were partly the result of his
braces and the rudimentary recording method. The one hour
session cost within $50. He left the band shortly after the 1963
recording session. (
From Wikipedia)

Ely was born in Portland, Oregon where he attended Washington
High School.
