GOODNIGHT, 2019!

(With apologies to Margaret Wise Brown)

In the year gone by,
There were cosmic crisp apples
And a vortex so polar, cold like the poles
And a picture of –
For the first time, a black hole!
And the end of Star Wars, Avengers and Thrones
And two outbreaks – flu and the measles
And a pair of impeachment articles
And calls for Area 51 storming
And warnings about vaping
And tariffs and shootings and a duct tape banana
And a quiet old Mueller who was whispering “Russia”
Goodnight, year
Goodnight, news
Goodnight frustration over the news
Goodnight Notre Dame fire
And fights in Venezuela and Hong Kong
Goodnight Marlboro Man
Goodnight D.C. Fontana
Goodnight Mad Magazine
And goodnight John Paul Stephens
Goodnight Gloria Vanderbilt
And goodnight iTunes as we knew it
Goodnight Grumpy Cat
And goodnight Caroll Spinney
Goodnight Russi Taylor
(The original voice of Minnie Mouse!)
Goodnight nobody
Goodnight Lee Mendelson
And goodnight to first all-lady space walk rush
Goodnight stars
Goodnight air
Good night noises everywhere

Christmastime is here! Happiness and cheer! Fun for all that children call… IT’S A PODCAST, CHARLIE BROWN ep. 44!

This month, Samantha Claus (you’ll have to listen to understand) brings “Sparky” playwright Jack McManus back to the show. We’ll be discussing the 2002 TV episode “Charlie Brown’s Christmas Tales”.

Also, unlike poor Sally’s dollhouse bicycle, you’ll also find under your podcast tree a Random Strip of the Month and a review of the “Peanuts by Schulz” short “Doing it Right”.

Happy holidays!
