Logged onto Instagram and first post is by my dad at the Van Gogh exhibit in NC. Caption concludes thusly: "If it comes to your town, you definitely should Gogh!"
busy day, just logged on, saw the cartoon.... it would have been my father's 81st birthday today. Wasn't strictly ready for that.

@DC, I just finished reading Operation Pedestal by Max Hastings, a recounting of the British RN battling to resupply Malta in August 1942, and as I usually am, always somewhat surprised at how both disorganized and feckless they are, including ship captains giving up on ships way too soon, and the commanders not focusing on the main objective.
ANYWAY, that reminded me of a comment you made some years ago when I somewhat jocularly did a power ranking of various armies in WWII and you took exception to ranking the Red Army so high, with a comment to the effect that they advanced without proper weapons with commissar following them with loaded pistol - or some such; but that was a final week of the war ranking, not 1941.
my Dad passed away in 2018 at 80 years of age.
