Donald Trump & Sarah Palin and Gloria DeHaven

Almost every day in the news we see stories about or images of Donald Trump. It seems that all the media people are in love with his mixed bag of tricks—stupid comments about Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, or any of his fellow GOP contenders for the throne, his statements about his net worth, his advice about what we should do about a Great Wall of China on our southern border, about his possibly running as a 3rd party candidate. As Sinatra once sang in “Everything Happens to Me,” “Every time I play an ace, my partner always trumps.” Well, nearly everything he’s doing is like that partner who “Trumps” the country’s aces. I think the perfect GOP ticket to insure Hillary’s win in 2016 would be a Trump/Sarah Palin pairing. Instead of one joker in the pack we’d have two.

I always check the list of famous birthdays in the day’s newspaper to see who’s close to my age, the oldest at the top working down to the youngest. I can always stop looking at 50 because I don’t recognize most of those younger than that. Two days ago, at the very top at age 90, was a name that brought back memories, Gloria DeHaven, that sultry star with the come-hither smile and the beauty mark on her left cheek. I best remember her from her role in the 1950 movie Three Little Words, in which she sang “Who’s Sorry Now?” She was just one of the film stars I fell in love with back then. Or maybe it was “fell in lust with.”
