Van Halen’s “Jump” had a synth line that Eddie wrote circa 1981 but was rejected by the other band members. In 1983, producer Ted Templeman asked David Lee Roth to listen to the unused song idea. To come up with a lyric for it, Roth remembered seeing a TV news report the night before about a suicidal jumper. Roth thought that one of the onlookers of such an event would inevitably yell "go ahead and jump". Roth bounced this suggestion off Hostler who agreed it was good; however instead of describing a potential suicide, the lyrics were written as an ontological invitation to action, life, and love.
Ghislaine (60) gets 20 years and $750k fine. It's a Federal sentence. See ya later, Sicko.
Turkey does NOT block admission of Sweden & Finland to NATO. I wonder if a van showed up at Erdoğan's house filled with cash, dried reindeer meat, and sauna branches.
Who do you want to be the next President of the United States?

Just back from a morning run with my (younger) doppelganger. He's almost done with a run across the country. Started in SF on May 1 and will finish at Rehoboth Beach, DE., on July 1. He's been doing just over fifty miles per day. He passed through Arlington this morning and a small group of folks joined him. https://www.facebook.com/WardianRunningHome
