This is for me as shocking and upsetting as Bowie or Prince or Cohen: Frank Delaney obituary. So re: Joyce will be an uncompleted masterwork. I am deeply saddened,

Charles, if ever there was a more compelling reason to lose your podcast cherry, it's re: Joyce (even more than Mike Duncan's History of Rome).

Brazil has a different Father's Day than the US, and I make claims to being honored on both, but so far it's hasn't worked.

it happened again yesterday, the first attempt at cloning has reported two notices, one of which said: channel not found (or something similar), in the second attempt everything went ok.
It just happens to me that are always needed two attempts in the same new hub where  I'm cloning?

All ends well, okay. But the first failed attempt  definitely confuse people, then they go to negative publicity about cloning that does not work (but in truth it works). I think it is appropriate to reproduce this (or try to reproduce).

I always thought I type my password wrong the first time. I had the same behaviour when doing my test migrations. In the end I always had a working clone though.

Welcome back! Yes, I'd also suggest switching to let's encrypt. Here's one doc I've found useful:   https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-secure-apache-with-let-s-encrypt-on-ubuntu-14-04

Bill Lee Seeks To Be Labor’s Anti-Candidate In 2016 Vermont Governors’ Race

By Dave Van Deusen*
Special to Infoshop News

Montpelier, Vermont, 8/23/16 -- Anyone who grew up in New England or Quebec in the 1970s, any baseball fan really, knows tales of the Spaceman. Pitching for the Boston Red Sox from 1969-1978 and the Montreal Expos from 1979-1982, yarns of Bill sprinkling “marijuana dust” on his pancakes to help him cope with big city bus fumes abound. We Vermonters know him as an adoptive (and eccentric) favorite son, involving himself politically in support of single payer healthcare and endorsing Anthony Pollina’s own 2008 run for governor. Now the Spaceman is running for Governor in his own right; as the candidate of the Vermont Liberty Union Party. To his right is Republican Phil Scott. Also to his right is Democrat Sue Minter. Bill may be one part conservative but he is also two parts socialist (and three parts tell-it-like-it-is or should be maverick). His name recognition is strong enough to cause concern among some Democratic Party insiders (will he draw votes from Minter?), and his policy positions are out-side-the-box enough to, perhaps, gain interest among working class voters who may otherwise lean towards racecar driving Scott. With a campaign war chest of 20 bucks (American – not Canadian), he may be something greater than long shot to win, but what he lacks in traditional political advantages he makes up for in candor. All told, he is the curveball in this year’s election. And oh, he also wants the vote of the union worker.

I had the pleasure of interviewing Bill, by phone, while he was in in New Brunswick, Canada, doing a community fund raiser with former ball player Matt Stairs.

Dave Van Deusen: Bill, I appreciate your out-spokeness on issues, and your time with the Sox, and somewhat with the Expos (I’m more of a Sox guy myself). I understand you are running for Governor of Vermont and would welcome the vote of union workers.

Spaceman Bill Lee: [Look,] I have created more millionaires [out of working people] then anybody in the history of unions. I took the money from the billionaires [owners] and gave it to [Major League Baseball] players.

Van Deusen: let’s talk about that. You were playing during the 81’ strike, right?

Spaceman: Yes, I was elected Player Rep [for the players union] in 70’ for the American League, after Gary Peters was going to be released, and then in two years I was the head Rep for the American League [serving with Marvin] Miller, & Dick Moss; Joe Torre was the rep for the National League. [Together] we started arbitration, we started free agency with the Sykes decision and basically opened up [pay] from [a minimum of] $9500 a year pay to $502,000 [a year] where they are right now.

Van Deusen: Perhaps many people don’t understand that before the MLB Players Association really got strong, under Marvin Miller, the average pay was something like nine thousand bucks a year. Is that accurate? I remember reading Ball Four [by Jim Bouton], great book, where he talks about that; same kind of wages guys were getting working at a non-union warehouse.

Spaceman: Yes. And eventually we [MLB ball players] got to be where we made 8 times more the average worker. Then it jumped highly after free agency. I got very upset that they were making too much money. That’s my socialist views under Eugene Debbs. I kinda wanted to give some of the money back, or redistribute it through the minor league/AAA, but the major leagues would have nothing to do with that. Then I got up to the 81’ strike, and I was basically gone cause the 82’ season came and I got released in May from Montreal for sticking up for .....

This guy seems pretty cool, but I grew up in New England in the 70s (and 80s), and I never heard of him before now; admittedly, I didn't really follow baseball, although there are names I recall of prominent yankees, (, thurman munson, , reggie jackson ) or red sox players (carlton fisk, carl yaztremski), but this was just because I did play the game on the playground at recess, etc. with other kids who WERE big fans and would mention their names often.
