    Let's Trump again like we did last summer!
    Let's Trump again like we did last year!

    That's Chubby Checker singing "Twist" instead of "Trump" for anyone too young to know where those lines in a song came from. .

      Actually had a chance to meet Checker a couple of years ago as he was trying to get investment for a foodservice product line. He posed for pictures with all of us who wanted one. Nice guy. And his voice was still that one-of-a-kind, throaty hum.

        In a school gym I twisted to his music with a firs ever date my mother picked up and dropped off. I was like 14 or something. The girl's name was Sue Simms. Only date I had with her since her family moved away. Weird. I just realized I can still remember her name. Just remembered somehting else. It was a Sock Hop!

    I posted the following to WDonway post on Why to vote for Trump. One of the Google/YouTube vids was from this "rally" in the article.

    "This is definitely unscientific. As tonight's rally for Trump was finishing I watched the number of views on the YouTube screen lower l/h corner.
    I then looked right to see what type of support, or not, was represented by the thumb up or down indications.
    Then I used the same search criteria to look at the 4 top Google / YouTube selections of (Trump / Biden rally live) for each. (Fairly biased analytic origins?)
    For Biden total views are 221,587, vote up 3582 and vote down 9507
    For Trump total views are 228,026, vote up 27500 and vote down 1457

    This is just a snap-shot in time, yet the metrics of the participation surprised me. "
