A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Missing Hope: I'm too young to have collected voluminous memories of the late, great Bob Hope. But I certainly enjoyed watching and reading many of the tributes to the man who probably had more influence on American comedy than any other. I particularly liked this article by Doug Gamble, one of Hope's writers.


Hope's own wit was as sharp, if not sharper, than that of his writers. When a writer with a stuttering affliction explained he missed a meeting because he was at the hospital while his wife had twins, Hope said, "Twins, huh. Apparently you don't just stutter when you talk."


That nearly had me fall out of my chair laughing.
