The Watering Hole, Tuesday, November 22, 2016: Somebody Died On This Date In 1963

On November 22, 1963, author Aldous Huxley died. Famous for writing Brave New World (you can read it free at the link), Huxley also experimented with Mescaline, the experiences of which led to his writing The Doors of Perception.

On November 22, 1963, author C.S. Lewis died. Famous for writing The Chronicles of Narnia (you can pay to read it at the link), a set of children’s stories meant to indoctrinate them into the Christian faith, Lewis also gave highly popular radio speeches on Christianity during WWI.

On November 22, 1963, author John F. Kennedy died. Famous for having written Profiles in Courage, a book actually ghostwritten for him by Ted Sorenson, Kennedy was also President of the United States for a couple of years and his assassination may or may not have involved Rafael Cruz, father of Senator Ted “I have No Morals So I’m Supporting Trump” Cruz.

Yes, it’s true. All three of these famous men died on the dame day.

This is our daily open thread. Feel free to discuss anything you wish.

  1. Looks llike Drumpfukle has had a change of heart, not going to ‘lock her up’. His rabid clientele are not going to like this. It is almost as if all his promises were bullshit. Whodathunkit?

    • He’s a salesman. He says what the buyers want to hear. And the buyers (voters) in this case weren’t the brightest bulbs.

  2. In case anyone is interested, Democratic Underground is finally back in service for the hoi polloi. You have to select a new password to resume access to posting and the other amenities available when logged in.
