The Sunday Bottom 5
The very best of the very worst of the week that was:

  1. El Chapo – With recent sentencing of notorious, Mexican drug lord to life in prison, importation of all illegal narcotics into America has ceased with Sunday Bottom 5 pollsters “pretty sure” America has now won drug war. 
  2. Mueller TestimonyAuthor of famous report testifies before Congress, paid ultimate compliment of having both GOP, Democrats completing misinterpreting investigation results. 
  3. African Sewage ProblemFabulous, another world crisis as booming Africa, Asian cities do not have enough toilets for booming, excreting, population…In pace-setting countries, 90% of homes and 80% of schools lack toilets.  
  4. Pac-12 Football Start Times –  Once-decent college football conference now relegated to considering sunrise kickoffs to attract TV viewers…Plan actually makes sense from strictly football standpoint, tho East Coast binge-watchers who will now have nothing to do after late eastern time zone games and at midnight getting shorts in knot. 
  5. Trump Fact CheckClick here for latest misinformation from a president either unable or unwilling to tell the truth…Today, Mueller testimony hijinks!

Today At The Site
The Diary of a NobodyThe hotel is sold out and pretty busy, and Sparrow has the latest from the sundry stand. Today’s Diary.

We are out of Choco-Tacos at the sundry stand!!!…!!!!…I am not making that up…The first clue was when I started moving some ice cream a bit after midnight and all anyone was getting were those Oreo Klondike deals…No one was getting Choco-Tacos and some investigating showed they weren’t getting Choco-Taco because there weren’t any in the sundry stand freezer and there weren’t any in the freezer in the back office, either…I refuse to panic, but I have some zero clue what the deal is…Are Choco-taco workers on strike???…Did they run out of Choco-Taco shells???…They can’t possibly be out of chocolate…I don’t know, tho…We’re also out of ham and cheese Hot Pockets.

On This Date
In 1855 – The USS Constellation, America’s last naval vessel built exclusively with sail power, is commissioned with a crew of 21 officers and 265 sailors. After commissioning, Constellation saw service in the Mediteranean and Africa before reporting for duty with the Union in the Civil War. She was the second of four Navy ships to use the name – it is not currently in use – and was decommissioned and recommissioned a couple of times before being struck from the Navy’s ship registry in 1955. She is now a museum ship in Baltimore harbor. 

In 1984 – The Games of the XXIII Summer Olympics open in Los Angeles. 6,829 athletes from 140 nations participated in 221 events and the US led all nations with 83 gold and 174 total medals. Romania and West Germany followed in the total medal count in an Olympics boycotted by the Soviet Union and 13 other nations. Noted for low construction costs and a $250 million operating profit, the Los Angeles Games are generally considered to be the most financially successful in Olympic history. 

In 1990 – The Dance by Garth Brooks is at #1 on Billboard’s country chart – then known as the Hot Country Singles and Tracks chart – for the third and final week. It was Brooks’ second of 19 #1s on the country chart and the first of five consecutive #1s. Though the song did not chart on Billboard’s Hot 100, it did make the pop charts in Great Britain, Scotland and Ireland. The song was written by Tony Arata.
