Health? Entertainment? Link on Fidget Spinners article

They're coming everywhere. (Maybe to a barber shop near you.) And they maybe the hula hoop of our age. So far, suckers that we are to be early adopters, we haven't bought yet, much less had time for due diligences prior to making the high dollar - for us - investment, much less do the research and subsequent treatise Vox has completed. But we can provide a link to the story: Wading through the benefits-distractions of fidget spinners.
A good Sunday afternoon enlightenment read.

The Time Gov. Happy Chandler Sang at the Adair Co. Courthouse

CM COMMENT: This is a must read today, for enlightenment and entertainment, and as a simple test to know if one is really a Kentuckian or not. If you read this story and/or listen to the embedded rendition of "My Old Kentucky Home" and don't get goosebumps, think of yourself as one who doesn't belong here. If tears are in your eyes, count yourself in a state of eternal grace as a Child of the Commonwealth. The visit to Columbia was sandwiched in between Happy's stops in Sulphur Well and Cane Valley and Coburg. Thank you, thank you. Mr. Mike Watson, for making our day. - EW
