The only group from California to participate in the presidential inauguration is…

Merced County Sheriff’s Posse – Hilmar, California.

They’re holding a fund-raiser in Merced to solicit donations. A posse rally.

Here is the updated list of inauguration performers, and decliners.

Trump that.

    Rumours this morning of Paul Anka, a long-time friend. If true, I apologise on behalf of all Canadians. (Not that many Canadians these days will even have heard of him — in fact has anybody heard of him in donkey’s years?).

    Allegedly he will perform a version — with new lyrics — of My Way. Seems appropriate. It was certainly nobody else’s.

    I’m curious why Lebrecht added the editorial “sic” after the word “posse” in the article headline. Is there an error the headline is quoting?

    Brexit. Trump. Nationalism rampant. Progressivism on its heels. Ah, these are glorious times. Keep on chirping, Norman!
