“And I will close by reiterating the central allegation of our indictments, that there were multiple, systematic efforts to interfere in our election,” Special Council Robert Mueller said in his now history-making report. “And that allegation deserves the attention of every American.”
There’s a time for joy,
A time for tears.
A time we’ll treasure through the years,
We’ll remember always
(Graduation Day by The Four Freshmen — 1956)
Each year at this time, millions of words are uttered by graduates, administrators and guest speakers at high schools and college commencement programs.
I wonder who invented beds to rest our tired, weary heads.
I don’t know how we’d do without a bed where we can just stretch out.
When you buy beds you just can’t lose, you have a lot of kinds to choose;
water, brass and even wood, Check it out, make sure it’s good.
Mattresses are always fun to try to buy the perfect one.
Not firm, not soft, just check the rack, but, get the one best for your back.
You’d think that one would be impressed, if they knew how I dressed my bed in lace, and satins, too, I only buy the best.
