Clarence is not leaving for himself a great legacy in history. How can you say he is a credit to his race when he is tearing down everything that people fought and died for in the 1960’s? He is gutting voting rights, destroying affirmative action, turning abortion rights back to the Dark Ages. Plus, he receives questionable “political” gifts, hides under-the-table unethical dealings, has lied, etc. Clarence Thomas has turned the Supreme Court into one with ethical problems. My question is: do some of his actions taint his court rulings?
Speaking of the “MAGA crowd,” Justice Clarence Thomas’ wife works with the deplorables even though Clarence rules in the Supreme Court on many of the MAGA actions. Democrats call for new supreme court ethics rules amid Clarence Thomas’ recurring scandals… which ethics rules will be too little and way too late. It is so unfair for Judge Thomas to pass SCOTUS judgements on the very rights and most personal freedoms of Americans’ lives. In his unethical hands are life and death judgements which will last for many decades and beyond. How unfair to Americans! Democrats accuse the top U.S. court of the ‘lowest ethical standards’ in history, but Republicans say criticism of Justices Neil Gorsuch and Thomas is unfounded. The Republicans are evil and rotten.
JESUS H. CHRIST!! Pelicans’ #ZionWilliamson is named as a starter on the #NBA All-Star team. #Hallelujah!
What in the hell do you think of that?
I cannot wait until the All-Star game.
These two Hollywood icons were sleeping with men undercover. Tell me it “ain’t” so. These here are Cary Grant and Gary Cooper. The article in the link below says they left “a legacy of bravery and perseverance.” Maybe, that is such concerning the roles they played in the movies; not so in their life as gays.
Here I write about a Mardi Gras memory; a blast from the past!
Firstly, a note: by Ferdie (Jan. 28, 2023) — I received some good news about my A1C and blood sugar levels on Thursday. My doctor said, “Excellent”!
After that good news, this is what I said about my “staying afloat” health wise and how I wanted to celebrate:
Now, back to my article:
BOSCOVILLE (Gazette) — By the way, this is from Mardi Gras weekend 2014 in New Orleans: The best of the parades and the best of the Balls are this weekend… culminating on Fat Tuesday. I am worn down tonight; but I am going to kick things back off in the morning.
Yes, this picture is becoming one of my favorites. I need to find this poster and hang it on my wall. WHERE CAN I FIND THIS POSTER?? I want it.
GAZETTE (February, 2014) — I just read something that reminded me that the OSCARS are tonight. I might come back online later and list my choices before the broadcast.
GAZETTE (Jan. 20, 2023) — True story! During a 2023 New Year’s celebration (at about 1220am), I sang a song for the crowd which I dedicated to a sweet someone which rendition made her swoon. I occasionally serenade her anyway; and many of the romance songs which I sang at the Coffee House were written by me for her. Very true!
GAZETTE (Jan. 28, 2023) — This following definition enhancement is illuminating for me because it tells me a success strategy. It might help me with reaching my goals:Ideation is not just a one-time idea generation or a brainstorming session. In fact, we can divide ideation into these three stages:generation, selection, and development.
A NOTE in 2014. (I have since changed my mind 180°): Coach Monty Williams of the New Orleans Pelicans needs to be fired. This team has been in last place of their division for the last three years. Does owner Tom Benson have his head stuck up his buttockal area?
I like old-school movies and old-school pictures. Bettie Page has to be the most prolific pinup queen ever. She has a great, unending volume of pictures. The Los Angeles Times wrote: “Page was most famous for the estimated 20,000 4-by-5-inch black-and-whoite glossy photographs taken by amateur shutterbugs from 1949 to 1957. The photos showed her in high heels and bikinis or negligees, bondage apparel–or nothing at all.”
Media keep showing this LSU gymnast. She appeared in SI Swimsuit edition. Cover also. She is going viral.
By the way...
GAZETTE (May 16) — I found a nice-looking fishing location during the day yesterday in St. Tammany Parish while driving by. I drove back at 4:40 a.m. with my fishing pole confident I’d leave with several fish. I saw this sign at the entrance to the big ol’ fine pier (if you can see it) that said DO NOT FEED THE ALLIGATORS. #HellNo! I mean, Hell To The No! I walked on the pier briefly, and then left.
Then, I read...
A fine article about the hidden life of actor Burt Lancaster at the below link:
Our Father who art in heaven hallowed be Thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen!
Bring all of your life situations to the cross.
See the cross! You have to see the cross in your situation before you see the resurrection. I count it all joy. By the way, I will write an article in my Delery Gazette about my last dancing session in public which I wish I could turn back the hands of time in order to make a correction.
My thoughts on entering crawfish season in Louisiana:
I definitely have something to say about Gov. Ron DeSantis’ book-banning and blocking of classes on Critical Race Theory in Florida schools. What I say below explains some of it. You can see the link sitting above “Add a comment“.
Below, after the Sofia Vergara picture, I explain my deep love for old-school movies and pictures… Firstly, Here is a link 🔗 to click (shown below also) which I am trying to embed here. I am searching for words to describe the precarious state of the world today. Russia’s evil leader, Vladimir Putin, has the world on the brink of Armageddon. You can click the link (in the meantime) until I figure out how to embed it and what I want to say.
Sophia Vergara is #1 in my heart, and #1 in the world as most beautiful.
In the clip below is one of my favorite couples in cinematic romances.
Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman are here in an iconoclastic scene from Casablanca.
Thank God for the channels that provide us movies from the Golden Age.
(February 2, 2023) -- The SAINTS offensive scheme sucks...
2/2…Give Hill a position, and let him play like everyone else on the team. Nobody gets continuity with him all over the place. Do they think they are fancy game planners using trickery? No, it is the most unpro-like, amateurish game plan in the league. It is a losing game plan.
GAZETTE (July) — How can this baby have the same exact smile as her mom’s. I will search to see if her mom has any later pictures of her baby. I want to see if her daughter still looks like her “mini-me.”
Two weeks after his last love letter to his wife during the Civil War, this man was killed at the Battle of Bull Run. All of the lives lost in making this country what it is, it is a sin and a shame that insurrectionist, traitor, seditionist Donald Trump is perched to announce in July his candidacy for President of the United States. Trump has served no penalty, has answered no questions to the Justice Department, has gone completely “Scott free” over the January 6th insurrection.
BREAKING NEWS (note: this was an APRIL Fool prank which I fell for) >>Colin Kaepernick has reportedly signed a 3 year $28 million deal with the New England Patriots, per Adam Schefter. https://t.co/nZRBJLXI5O
Now to the LaLa Land of Orangeman, Donald Trump...
We hear so much said about Donald Trump that we become anesthetized to the surrealism.
I extend my thoughts and wishes to Sidney Poitier.
I want to thank my readers and subscribers for visiting the DELERY GAZETTE to read a little bit. There are some things in the news that I want to touch upon. I will add to this article as I write my thoughts on some of those issues. I want to write about the Academy Awards which everyone is chiming in on. While I am waiting on the NFL draft on April 29 I have been watching some volley ball.
Now, here are some of the Scrolls that I am writing in my “Captain’s Log” from my desk. I posted them here raw and just like I wrote them. If you have questions you can ask them in the comments box at the bottom of the post. Thank you!
These are some of my recent Scrolls for my next book:
These Scrolls which I originally wrote in my Captain’s Log at my desk are now more-or-less rough drafts of what I want to enter into my book. I will do much editing and cutting before they are “book ready.”
0827 hrs. >>It is supposed to rain this morning. I ate breakfast and drank coffee already. I want to put another intro at the top before I publish the book. They say quad summer. What in-the-hell is Quad Summer? This must be some kind of New York thing or something like that. >>>Maybe I will go off to vote today.
2033 htrs. >>I am watching the PELS as they go into the 4th quarter. With 9 mins. left in the game, it looks like the PELS are going down.

I just found out that Chauvin has been out on bail during the trial. 1956 hrs. >>I am watching the Pelicans. I will probably turn the game off with 2 to 3 minutes left. I surely do not want to watch the PELS lose the lead and lose another game. My opinion: the PELS will not make the PLAY IN. They lose too many huge leads to lose the game in the end.
0955 hrs. >>Feeling pains in my side like kidney stones. Meanwhile, there is nothing like a good laugh to take the edge off the pain a little bit:
2127 hrs. >>since the PELS are kind of suckie right now I have, for solace, started following teams with the many former PELS who are thriving this season. RIght now on TV is guard Frank Jackson who is looking so good for the PISTONS.

George Armstrong Custer lost his life and everyone’s life in his battalion of the 7th Cavalry at Little Bighorn because he wanted only himself and his troops to attack Sitting Bull’s village. Why? In order to capture young Native girls for his carnal pleasure for the journey back East.
In his previous mission Custer killed everyone in the village except 17 young Native girls whom he dragged back East to rape and to share his tent during the march. All Companies of the 7th Cavalry were supposed to rendezvous at Little Bighorn before attacking, but Custer disobeyed orders because of lust for the Native girls and personal glory. Custer’s body was found with an arrow shoved up his penis which the U.S. Army did not reveal to his wife.
Hey, y’all, I am having fun filling out my March Madness bracket. I have #8-seed LSU and #2-seed BAMA winning in the 1st Round. I even have BAMA going to the Sweet Sixteen… maybe even the Elite Eight. Some experts think that BAMA will make the Final Four. Once I fill in all the slots on my Times-Picayune sheet, I will go online to finish my online bracket, and maybe win the $millions or a car or a trip. Who Knows? However, most likely not!
The seditious acts by the Republican Senators today is the work of a priviledged class of irresponsible despots, authorized tyrants and bloodsuckers who fasten upon the flesh of oppressed blacks and draw political power and consequence from the gall of their penultimate legalistic jiglisms and crimes.

1909 hrs. >>I am getting ready to watch some football. I feel the weather getting a little bit cooler. I will put on a hat, and put the heater on medium. I ate a meal with my stomach now cramping up a little bit. I am feeling stress. I am contemplating here on lying down for a brief moment. The cloud is fuzzy with some of the things which I saved. >>>What happened to the Mardi Gras story? How am I supposed to eat a New Orleans fried seafood po’ boy if I cannt eat bread or fried foods?

I might enjoy that. I have to figure out how to transfer my writings from my touch screen to the 2020 computer. One idea is to copy it onto DELERY GAZETTE as a draft. My plan is to print a page out once it reaches the 9.5 mark. However, to send a digital copy to 2020, I will put the digits on DELERY GAZETTE.

I want to take a break from writing mystery stories to write some biographical stuff.
I was born December 27, 19??. ?? is a year that I love. Numbers and how they fall have a lot to do with much that I base things on.

That is how different layers of your life begin to unwrap. 1818 hrs. >>The SAINTS look like they will be the 2nd seed which will play Chicago in Round 1 of the playoffs.

Okay, the Saints are on their way. Next Sunday will be fun. What the hell is going on out there? I am having a little bit of trouble typing because I have a bandage on my right index finger. I cut it on a piece of glass leaving a gash. Meanwhile, since this football squeezed my day, I will try to find something good to watch on TV.
2317 hrs. >>I am getting closer to understanding the saving of this digital stuff. Meanwhile, I am going to save some more of the pictures from my phone.
I wrote an article of interest recently. It is entitled THE FIRST CHICKEN. I had promised to post it. The last thing before this that I wrote THAT LAST HURRICANE is listed on my desk under ON FERDIE’S DESK.
Previously, I wrote from my desk about the current state of affairs concerning the ugly, hateful Republicans. Click here to read it. I entitled it THAT LAST HURRICANE which is on my mind too. I will add the story to the GAZETTE in a few days. I started writing from my editor’s desk some of my concerns.
What you have in the “Delery Gazette” are my stories and articles. On the right column, I show the list of my articles so that you may read any of my stories that you like. Have fun reading what I write. So, look at the list of my articles on the right (or click at the bottom… for the full site view from a cell); and a list of writings from my desk, FERDIE’S DESK. Also…
Here is one of them which you can click to see a customer review.
I HAVE A DREAM!
by Ferdie J WerdieListPrice: $9.95 Format: Paperback
Size: 5 x 8 Pages: 117 Info: Romantic Mystery Publication Date: Mar-2002
My last entry before Covid-19 hit:
NOTE: Mardi Gras 2020 has passed.. I will write some good stuff about what transpired over the final 5 days of the season. Firstly, I will eat; then, I will write… maybe this evening. Lo and behold COVID-19 and the quarantine hit the country, and I decided to put a hold on writing about the Mardi Gras season for right now. This quarantine has been an experience like we have not seen. I will most likely write about that firstly.
Meanwhile, I describe in this video what I will write about:
I am about to sign off for now. My stomach is growling, then I want to do some busy work. I will get back to y’all.
What are people saying about the lousy Republicans’ allowing no witnesses? Just wondering! Mitch McConnell is a court-stocking, obstructionist who failed to allow Barack Obama to legally pick his Supreme Court nominee. McConnell would not even allow discussion on Obama’s nominee. McConnell is a Confederate along with his puppet, Donald Trump.
Is the girl below skinny?
Is the girl below fine?
Is the girl below plump?
I read some words in a story about the girl below and how fine she is. Do you think she is fine? I do not think that she will see what I say here, but I think she is what you call fine as wine. That is just my opinion. Anyway, back to people’s thoughts about the dirty, lying Republicans. I am reading that many people think that the women of America will have to save us from the evil Republicans.
Being afraid is the precursor to gearing up for battle, our democracy is at stake and it's worth fighting for. pic.twitter.com/QxoSNr7DmU
Do you see what the Republicans are doing to justice?
Yes, I have to agree that maybe the ladies will stand tall and save us. There are many female warriors in America who are trying to bring our country back to righteousness. I believe that Congress needs to bring our Presidential election system into the 21st Century by correcting the flaws in the Electoral College which often gives the presidency to a candidate who is not elected by the majority of Americans. HORRIFIC! That leaves the important decisions of the future and the stacking of the Supreme Court in the hands of the minority. This is very unfair.
Here is a song that I sing:
And now, the end is near
And so I face the final curtain
My friends, I’ll say it clear
I’ll state my case of which I’m certain
I’ve lived a life that’s full
I traveled each and every highway
But more, much more than this
I did it my wayRegrets, I’ve had a few
But then again, too few to mention
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption
I planned each chartered course
Each careful step along the byway
But more, much more than this
I did it my wayYes, there were times, I’m sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew
But through it all, when there was doubt
I ate it up and spit it out
I faced it all and I stood tall
And did it my wayI’ve loved, laughed and cried
I’ve had my fill, my share of loosing
And now, as tears subside
I find it all so amusing
To think I did all that
And may I say, not in a shy way
Oh no, no, not me
I did it my wayFor what is a man, what has he got
If not himself then he has not
To say all the things he truly feels
And not the words of one who kneels
The record shows, I took the blows
But I did it my way
Oh, #MyGoodness! Is Morgan Freeman also among the accused now? Has a man “just talking” become a crime and a sin now? #WOE to men! REPORTED TODAY: “Several witnesses on CNN said that Morgan Freeman frequently made comments about the bodies of women working on set, at his production company, or even female reporters. Four people who worked on film sets with Freeman said that the actor made comments about women’s clothing or bodies.” Huh?!
Don’t look, Morgan. DON’T LOOK!
Cheerleaders! Close your eyes, men.
I wish that I could be a “bad” motor scooter like Muhammad Ali was. Muhammad said that he is so mean that he makes medicine sick. I filmed Ali for my job at a luncheon when he was in New Orleans to fight Leon Spinks at the Super Dome.
Why in the heck should empty land have more say-so in the election of our president than actual, human voters? This logic below is very flawed.
I saw another incident today on the news about utter, racist police brutality. I cannot watch much more of these incidents on TV. This stuff is not good for my spirit.
I just now turned off and could not watch a story on the news about a #blackMan violently dragged out of his car with a broken tail light parked in his own driveway. I do not know how it ended b/c I could not watch anymore. This stuff is happening on a daily basis.
A friend of mine switched to a different political party, bringing joy to my heart. Any good news these days for Democrats and for righteousness is great news, no matter how small. We have a criminal president in the United States who wants himself and all of his henchmen to be above the law.
…Plus, I'm fairly confident #Jesus would've been a Dem too. >>I am so happy to see a friend come back to the #smart side. I feel discouraged with the #landscape of the current political situation in the #UnitedStates. It seems like #Trump wants to place himself above the #law.
We (my local family) had some visitors come to town from California over the Memorial Day holiday. It is nice to see relatives from out of town. They came to town to visit relatives on both sides of the family. I did some visiting too on Memorial Day on my end. I had fun!
