You wanna know how I got these scars? My father, was a drinker, and a fiend. And one night, he goes off crazier than usual. Mommy gets the kitchen knife to defend herself. He doesn’t like that. Not. One. Bit. So, me watching, he takes the knife to her, laughing while he does it. He turns to me and says, “Why so serious?” Comes at me with the knife. “WHY SO SERIOUS?” He sticks the blade in my mouth… “Let’s put a smile on that face.” And… Why so s e r i o u s?
RIP Oscar de la Renta (July 22, 1932-October 20, 2014)
"There is much being said that his passing yesterday marks the end of an era. Not true. He was the most democratic man I knew and he would have lived happily and defined any era. He was happy dining with the rich and famous, for sure, but equally happy playing dominoes with his devoted staff. His designs reflected his extraordinary personality: optimistic, fun, sunny, romantic. … he told me he felt he had had the most amazing life and he was not afraid. This strength must have been with him in the hospital last week when he made the decision to turn off treatment; it was not the quality of life he wanted.
"He always said accept your friends for who they are, not for who you want them to be. Oscar was everything you could want a friend to be. Annette was his perfect partner, creating those magical houses and gardens together, giving extraordinary seemingly effortless dinners, and always taking care of each other. She slept on a cot in the hospital every night he was there. Theirs was the greatest, most life-enhancing love affair. Last week in the hospital he said that she never wears the beautiful jewelry he gave her, and she said simply, ‘I have you.’" — Anna Wintour

June 20, 1963: United States and Soviet Union Establish Emergency “Hot Line”
On this day in 1963, the United States and Soviet Union agreed to establish a “hot line” communication system between the two nations. The system intended to help diffuse ongoing tension after the Cuban Missile Crisis in October 1962.
President Kennedy declared, “This age of fast-moving events requires quick, dependable communication in time of emergency.” As a result, the “hot line” acted as a 24-hour-a-day direct link between Washington D.C. and Moscow for fast communication during an emergency or possible nuclear attack.
The emergency “hot line” has not been used by either nation.

Yes, growing up and learning the hard way that liberalism has its negative consequences is a harsh but necessary wake up call.
