Hillary Clinton’s hearing on Benghazi lasted more than 11 hours on Thursday. Here are some things that were shorter:

  • The Hobbit trilogy
  • Pickett’s Charge
  • The administration of Pedro Lascuráin, the 34th president of Mexico
  • The lifespan of a female mayfly
  • Phish’s set at Big Cypress in 1999
  • The Anglo-Zanzibar War
  • The Pawtucket Red Sox’s 33-inning victory over the Rochester Red Wings in 1981
  • The Goldblum Challenge (in which one watches this 10-hour video of Jeff Goldblum laughing)

THE END...

of our fiscal year is Thursday, June 30, and we have a much larger fundraising gap than we can easily manage with only days left to go.
