Hey you 75-year-old DUers


How many of you can dance like Mick Jagger, after heart surgery 6 weeks ago?

Kudos to Mick Jagger who still thrills his fans after all these years. Best of luck to The Rolling Stones for their US Tour starting out in Chicago this week.

Here's why Jared Kushner belongs in prison


Unrolled in Tami Burages' Threadreader:

What Paul Manafort wouldn't give up to Mueller's team:
He was never the campaign point person with Russia. Jared Kushner was.

Shortly after the 2013 Miss Universe pageant, the Kushners made a trip to Russia. They spent 4 days there and hung out with oligarchs VERY close to Putin.

Roman Abramovich: billionaire oligarch, Chelsea owner, Kremlin ally and, apparently, pals with Jared and Ivanka
While there (Feb 2014) the Kushners attended a gala alongside the heads of Alfa Bank and LetterOne.

And according to this article, "Since that night, a cone of silence seems to have descended on many of the attendees, usually gossipy folks who now refuse to talk about it."
Most of the talking points around Trump collusion with Russia involve the Trump Tower meeting or Manafort/Kilimnik.

But what almost everyone misses is what Kushner was doing.
While Trump was publicly running down how he would execute Putin's wish list if he were President (e.g. "NATO is dead," "We don't need sanctions," "Let's move out of Syria) ...

KUSHNER went to a pro-Russia think tank to get advice on Trump's foreign policy team.
Why ON EARTH would Kushner go to Dimitri Simes for this?
Remember who Kushner interfaced with in Russia in February 2014?
The heads of Alfa and LetterOne. THEY told him who to hook up with.

Lately I'm watching Downton Abbey - in order from start to finish

I heard a little while ago that a new theatrical movie will come out in September for Downton Abbey. It will have updates and new story lines for many of the major characters.

I'm excited about that and I decided it was time to review the entire series (all 6 seasons) from start to finish. I have never seen all of the episodes together - in order - until now, owing to a busy schedule and missing a lot. Before when I did catch an episode here and there, I was mostly puzzled because I had missed too many of the connecting storylines.

Now I can see what an awesome series this really was! I'm disappointed that certain characters were dropped but I guess that happens in every good show that continues past the original plan. At the moment I'm halfway thru Season 5.

No spoilers please, but let me know if you're a Downton Abbey fan and how you think the story develops over 6 years. Any ideas about where the new movie will take it?

The British really know how to stage a protest rally (photos)

Buzzfeed has posted quite a collection of protest photos from London yesterday.
Here are just a few:

I've had to reduce these photos and crop them to fit our format. But you can see the full-size version plus many more at this link:
