A 7-day holiday hiatus with no wireless or cell phone service, and numerous margueritas has left me with large-scale mental impairments. I believe this to be an image of current Speaker of the House of Representatives, John Boehner, though others tell me it is not.

Caption says it all: Mrs Lurlyne Mealhouse, star of US Women's Basketball team at the Pan-American Games, 1955. I was two. "Her cool competence on the court led to a comparison with [Ben] Hogan, golfdom's "man with the ice in his veins." Which would you rather have as your name---Mrs. Lurlyne Mealhouse or Mrs. Carmen Smotherman? (On the fatal Mrs. S. see post from 10/11/13.)
