The Daily Dose/April 25, 2021

Editor’s Note: While assorted elements of The Daily Dose– Leading Off, The Sunday Bottom 5, On This Date, Some Philosophy Crap, Trivia – may run occasionally, the feature is mostly on hiatus right now. It will return later this spring. 

The Sunday Bottom 5
A ranking of some things.

1. People of the State of Minnesota  Good job on not charging Derkek Chauvin with Murder 1…Sometimes prosecutors do this when a cop kills someone, but this is hard to prove when killer knew the victim only a few minutes…Murder 2 & 3 and Manslaughter 2 were reasonable charges supported by the evidence. 

2. Indonesian Submarine KRI Nanggala-402 You volunteer, you report aboard and sometimes you’re lost at sea because there is never a guarantee of surfacing after you dive…No one sure why boat went past crush depth – pretty much what you think it is – and 53 shipmates are gone. 

3. Lauren Daigle After 125 non-consecutive weeks at #1 on Billboard Hot Christian Singles chart, single You Say drops to runner-up spot as something called Crowder hits #1 with Good God Almighty…Sunday Bottom 5 pollsters will continue to keep tabs on song – which holds Billboard all-chart record for most weeks at #1 – as single has fallen and returned to top spot several times. 

4. NASA Helicopter Ingenuity Small, pesky helicopter takes man’s first aerial flights on another planet this week…While Sunday Bottom 5 pollsters hardly in possession of astronaut wings, they remain “pretty sure” that years from that tentative first flights will be looked upon as landmarks in space exploration.

5. NASA/SpaceX Contract  – Contract signed to send humans back to moon…Is there a reason for this???…No, not a good one…We’ve been there before, six times, and our work is done there…Sunday Bottom 5 pollsters “like, really certain and stuff” the only place to send humans right now is Mars. 

Today At The Site
Writing worth reading. Usually. 

It’s Read Free Sunday at The Diary. Enjoy in moderation.

The Diary of a Nobody – Sparrow is back at the hotel. Today’s Diary. 

The big news is ol’ Sparrow wasn’t on the schedule at the hotel when he reported for duty for his first night back since his vacation…I am not making that up…The first sign was Assistant Front Desk Manager Q looking like he was witnessing the Son of Man arriving when I walked in.
