The Sunday Bottom 5
A ranking of some things.

1. Donald Trump Good gravy, a man of no declared religious conviction who probably cannot name the first five (5) books of the Bible without divine intervention now in such dire financial straits he is now pandering to his base by hawking Bibles…Fortunately for him, his base believes everything he says and he’ll probably sell a few. 

2. Leap Second – Unprecedented increase in Earth’s rotational speed may – or it may not – force some very dull people to subtract a second from world clock…Leap seconds – to account for the slowing of the Earth – have been added since 1972, but this would be the first leap second to be subtracted…Thrilling, unprecedented change is due to shifts in Earth’s inner core 

3. Mass Shootings The 3-hole staple…2024 mass shooting numbers – defined as a shooting with at least four (4) or more casualties – continue to trend lower, with only six (6) shootings, five (5) deaths – a figure which includes one (1) suspect – and 23 (23) injuries, this past week…2024 numbers so low entry in danger of losing treasured “3-hole staple” status. 

4. Shohei Ohtani SB5 pollsters “pretty sure” Ohtani didn’t actually bet on baseball games -though only he knows for sure – and realize he doesn’t actually control his finances but are curious to know as to how in the hell $4.5 million leaves your bank account without someone in your inner circle wondering what in the hell was going on. 

5. California Minimum Wage New law giving state’s fast food workers a raise to $20/hour takes effect Monday…Yay for raises, but this is something that should’ve been collectively bargained and not mandated by the government, who should butt out of what employers pay employees.

On This Date
Extra, extra, read all about it. 

In 1966 – The Soviet Union’s Luna 10 is launched from the cosmodrome in what is now southwestern Kazakhstan. On April 3, Luna 10 entered lunar orbit, the first spacecraft to do so, and the spacecraft spent two months analyzing various aspects of the moon. Radio communications ceased on May 30 and Luna 10 is presumed to have later crashed into the lunar surface. 

In 2018 – The Vegas Golden Knights become the second NHL expansion team to win a division title in their first year in a 3-2 win over the San Jose Sharks. It was the Golden Knights’ 50th win of the season and they would later lose the Stanley Cup Finals to the Washington Capitals. The first NHL expansion team to win their division was the St Louis Blues, who won the West Division in 1967-68, which consisted of six expansion teams. 

In 2001 – Shaggy featuring Rayvon is at #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 for the only week with Angel. It was the third and final Top 10 hit and second and final #1 song for Shaggy and remains the only #1 song for Rayvon and only a #94 hit prevented him from being an ultimate one-hit wonder: an act whose only chart single went to #1…The song went to #1 in twelve other countries, including the Netherlands, Norway, and Great Britain, peaked at #46 on Billboard’s soul chart, and was Billboard’s 17th-biggest song of the year. 

Some Philosophy Crap
The wisdom of the ages. Whatever.

The cost of partisanship for partisanship’s sake was, [Edward] Livingstone said, too high a price for a free society to pay.
