Morning Brew for 11/19

Tough to get excited to make today's Brew when I just found out that the Billy Joel/Elton John concert tomorrow night in Salt Lake has been postponed. Can someone please send some Tamiflu to the concert promoter? Thanks a ton.

-West Virginia Senator, Robert Byrd, set a longevity record yesterday, working his 20,774th day as a US Senator. The 91-year old former KKK member (it's true, read the story) entered the house on January 3rd, 1953. I believe I heard yesterday on Fox News that Byrd has served under 11 different Presidents. If you can name all 11 Presidents that Byrd has served under WITHOUT looking it up I will put a picture of you, or whatever you want as tomorrow's headline. Leave it in the comments section of this post.

-The Trump Tower in Chicago is now the 6th tallest building in the world. The tower was previously number seven on the list, but due to the fact that The Donald and his hair were on the top floor when the most recent measurements were taken he has moved up a spot on the list. Okay, maybe that isn't the real reason, but it was sure fun to Google pictures of Donald Trump's hair.

-Even with the news of the concert postponement that I mentioned above, it is still a great day in the music world. The greatest band of all-time, Bon Jovi, is currently #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums. The Circle is the band's 4th #1 album. I'm still waiting for someone to explain how they are not in the Rock 'N Roll Hall of Fame. I will continue my lifetime boycott of going to the city of Cleveland until this happens.

-It's no wonder Cosmo Kramer went on strike. H&H's owner, Helmer Toro, has been charged with pocketing nearly $370,000 in income and other taxes that were withheld from his employee's checks. H&H is considered one of the world's leading bagel manufacturers.

  1. I could only think of nine of the 11. Maybe that means you can post nine-elevenths of the picture I wanted. All I wanted was a screen grab of the UCLA-CSF final score anyway. Leave out the UCLA part if you want & just put up CSF haha.
