First topic message reminder :

Removed the old one because it was full of crap.

Remember that this section is open only under the condition that it isn't used to attack others. Attacks based on religion was a big reason why it was closed the last two times, so cut it out. If you can't play nicely, don't play at all. 

Next time I'm just deleting the section, it's a waste of my time having to wade through all the crap. This thread is supposed to be light-hearted, keep it that way.

Funny you should mention that as I was just on my way in to put Disaster Press Conferences on the List.

Not so much of a problem with official 'First Responders' (another title I hate) talking to the public.  It's the choreography that I hate.  You have one guy as spokesperson, who takes all the questions...but virtually all heads of all damn departments involved have to try to get their heads on camera behind him..... and they squeeze and squeeze and squeeze to make sure their name tag and their cap and their medals get on the podium too.  Comical crap.

It has been long an exercise in self preening in America but bit by bit, the same antics are coming in thus side of the Atlantic too.  All we need is the one guy.  It's a disaster.  The rest of you hop it back to your jobs, you're probably needed.
Decent shout on those types of conferences, but picard Argh!!! Do you mean 'normality'? I assume you've deliberately done this...

Normalcy... Word was credited to Warren Harding...President before Coolidge and generally regarded as the thickest President in history..(Grant and Fillmore for company)

Tea Pot dome scandal happened on his watch...and when asked if he had any scandals in the cupboard on standing for the nomination asked for 24 hours to think about..

Swapped the thickest President for the quietest in Coolidge.

When told Coolidge was dead some wag remarked "How can they tell ???"

Grown adults whining as if they have been forced out of their ancestral homes, because they have to move desks at work.
