My humor blog is approaching the end of the Tale of Fatty Raccoon! And in-between all this, I get to insult Mallard Fillmore and point out what we should have been doing with Dr Seuss this past week. Here's what's been running there:
- MiSTed: The Tale of Fatty Raccoon, Chapter XVIII
- Why did Mallard Fillmore stop running in the newspaper?
- Statistics Saturday: Tunes I Remember Learning For Introductory Violin In Elementary School
- 60s Popeye: Myskery Melody, a cartoon people have been asking for
- Statistics February: People Are Acclimated To The New Mark Trail
- What's Going On In Gil Thorp? Why was that kid going on about the 90s Detroit Pistons? December 2020 – March 2021
- The lost opportunity in the Dr Seuss debate
- MiSTed: The Tale of Fatty Raccoon, Chapter XIX

Trivia: The French government had about 200,000 soldiers (down from a million at the end of the war), plus 10,000 bureaucrats and some members of their families, occupying and administrating the French Zone of western Germany at the start of 1946.
