About That Women’s March

So, I was there. Mine is the imperfect one in the back where my sister ran out of dark pink and had to finish with light. In some ways it was quite an effort. TMC and I had to arrange housing with my cousin and get down there. On the day it was a crowded …

Or rather a Cartnoon/House hybrid. Doctor! Are you not aware of the prophecy the Hybrid will destroy Galifrey? I am totally aware and I’m not the Doctor. Sundays on BBC if you care. Anyway, my appreciation of Tom Lehrer (91 and quite alive) comes straight from Richard who thought he was as funny as a …

Happy New Beard!

On Cody Johnson I mean. You know, just yesterday I was at my Therapist’s and she remarked that I seemed to be weathering the SAD Season. We meet more frequently during this time and I have fewer life events to report on because outside the Holidays what happens? Coincidently February is fraught and March is …

From Minsk to Pinsk

By Robyn Dixon, Washington Post Jan. 17, 2020 Eight years ago, President Vladimir Putin decreed that Russia must become a leading scientific power. That meant at least five top-100 Russian universities …

Ladies and Gentlemen- Jimmy Smits

What? You thought he died after West Wing? Ken Jennings is the Greatest of All Time! Actually, not a bad ad from Steyer, where’s my Yang money dude? Country Music Yuk. With performance. Tom Steyer’s Tie

I like them roasted but can’t finish a whole one anymore. Meanwhile- Oh, you want a closer look- How about a South African …

A Can Of Worms

The metaphor is that it takes some doing to get those wriggly creepy crawlies back in it. If I was looking for something punny I might reference the Diet of Worms (it’s a Cathedral in Germany not noom, get over it) which was a conference held to form a response to Martin Luther’s Protestant Reformation. …

All The Fuss

Evidently Lev Parnas (tonight’s guest on Rachel) really does have receipts and there’s a lot of ‘smoking gun’ talk as the Articles, all two of them unfortunately, proceed to the Senate. Oh, Shiff, Nadler, Lofgren, Jeffries, Demings, Crow, and Garcia. Bolton’s Ghost Writer is apparently putting the finishing touches on his book which at least …

‘Bama Bound

Minneapolis (or Providence)

Hey, I do things, I go places, I know people. And people know me, I’ve been to some Netroots (“My name is Roger Murdock. I’m an Airline Pilot.”) and among the pleasures of that experience is that I’ve had a chance to chat with some fairly prominent folks who are not instantly recognizable. I swear …
