While you emerged

From the Holiday that compels you to honor veterans for protecting our foreign policy interests that only occasionally also served our notion of freedom, it is time to contemplate yet another day of remembrance.

The future Holiday that we’ll celebrate the corporate overlords who protected us from the dangers of not dying in droves thanks to climate change that allowed them to take a ship from Ireland to Alaska: A special “Billionaire’s Day” (because it is not like every day isn’t already Billionaires Day).

Atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations have crossed a new threshold, the UN’s weather agency said Monday, highlighting the urgency of curbing manmade, climate-altering greenhouse gases.

In April, for the first time, the mean monthly CO2 concentration in the atmosphere topped 400 parts per million (ppm) throughout the northern hemisphere, which pollutes more than the south, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) said.

It’ll last — at least until they get that whole Elysium ship built.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
