@39 LavaGirl: I like your idea of revolutionary orgasms, and appoint you winner of this week's thread! Viva la Resistance!
Meanwhile, in lieu of watching what will go down in flames as the most disgraceful inauguration in world history, I have been lucky to find classic movies at a local store downtown, featuring two of my favorite veteran actors, Paul Newman and Robert Redford (my new nickname for Redford is "Brad's Dad". Although there are no blood ties, I think Redford's and Pitt's close father-and-sonlike resemblance, especially in A River Runs Through It is uncanny). Oooh, those guys are gorgeous! I'm watching Cool Hand Luke tonight.
"Son....what we got a communicate...." Gotta love Paul Newman--he can't be broken, even on a chain gang. Gotta love Robert Redford; he's an equally class act, and, well, you and everyone already knows how much I drool over Brad.

Sorry to hear of the power outages your way---wind storms? We're having those here, too, but lately the rain is warmer--in the 40s and 50s--known as the Pineapple Express. Lovely to read about your six month old grandson and 7 year old grand daughter.

@17, @18 Just Blue & @16, @19 tabletop_joe: That is sad how so many people in your communities were grossly lied to by Trump's agenda about bringing back jobs. He can't (at least not in the coal industry; the market is dead, and China doesn't need U.S. coal). I bet there will be a lot of anger erupting soon from Trumpzilla's supporters when the shit spewing King of Carnival Barkers can't / won't / doesn't deliver the alleged glory days of mining from decades past, and in carnival lingo, only "burns the lot"* instead. We are in for a 3-ring circus.
(* Thank you, author Stephen King, for providing info resources from your book, Joyland, which listed definitions of carny terms, and the ones you used fictitiously).

I'm not about to be "stifled" by Archie-world. Let the resistance begin.

@1 Original Andrew: Bless you. I sure hope so.

@40 Hunter: Okay. You stated your point, and I agree that we don't need to rehash heated commentaries made many Savage Love columns ago. But I can and do still disagree with you about Hillary Clinton. Mistakes were made. No one presidential candidate is perfect. But as for emails, what is your stance on Trump's daily Twitters causing frenzied world reactions? Ties to Russia?!? Bragging he'd be fucking Ivanka if she weren't his daughter?? I couldn't care less about Hillary's emails made public, however unwise. Trump is downright dangerously insane.
Ironically you say you reluctantly still voted for Hillary. She was, indeed, the only suitable non-Trump candidate remaining by November 8th to serve as 45th President in the United States. Johnson, Stein, and all other write-ins were votes for Trump. I like your thinking though about Elizabeth Warren being President--although I believe that she and Bernie are serving the U.S. best in the Senate. I don't believe Warren would have run for the White House, though, despite the many of us who think she'd have kicked serious ass.
And Griz is marching on Saturday--hopefully able to obtain a pink Pussyhat.
Jan 18 auntie grizelda commented on Watch Barack Obama's Last Press Conference as President of the United States.
Twice legitimately elected President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, and daughters Sasha and Malia will be greatly missed. They're a class act. After 8 years' worth of undoing the senseless damage by Bush / Cheney, and dealing with what--69 GOP attempts to dismantle Obamacare?!---the Obamas leave the Oval Office without a scandal.
Trumpzilla, bought by the Koch Evil Empire, has been nothing but scandal, spewing raw sewage every time it opens its putrid mouth.

@4 iseult: Agreed *sigh*.

@5, @6 & @7: There is a Women's March in Bellingham (a long way from Seattle, though--three counties and 85 miles away) that starts at 10 am, Saturday, January 21, 2017 at 210 Lottie Street (City Hall). You are welcome to join us if you can make it.

Why does DIRTY somehow remind me of a long, long ago Savage Love LW identifying himself as Bill, who fantasized having a woman poop on him?

@86: Add one classic VW of my own that is the automotive love of my life (to my list of family members above)--and bless him for putting up with a nut like me all these years. I have found my Significant Other---however in mechanical form (like Bugs Bunny in a Warner Bros. cartoon when Elmer Fudd tried to lure him with a robot she-bunny. Bugs ignores her at first, saying, "Ehh---mechanical" until she comes back and kisses him, and ---!!!! "So she's mechanical!" as Bugs chases off after the robot she-bunny). We understand each other's Wile Coyote quirks.

@85: Actually, Hunter, after BiDanFan's refreshing assessment, I'm now proud to be called a cougar.
