More snow during the night….but TODAY it is going to warm up enough to begin melting!
HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE!
Oh, brother! I am so weary of how some in the media *report* … case in point:
A Reuters story begins, WASHINGTON, Jan 17 (Reuters) – The best-laid plans of Democratic presidential contender Bernie Sanders were upended this week – and his campaign is struggling to get back on track.
Then several grafs down: “So far, the dispute does not appear to have hurt Sanders, who saw his support among independents and Democrats rise by 2 points to 20% – ahead of Biden’s 19% – in the past week, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll conducted on Wednesday and Thursday. Warren was at 12 percent in the poll….”
I wish the media would just knock it off — ever since so-called journalists inserted themselves into the story, the Fourth Estate is an embarrassment! No journalistic ethics, whatsoever in many cases! (Not all cases…yet!)
The Constitution and the news media are linked…the only profession explicitly named and protected in the Constitution is the press. The founders understood that if the press was in jeopardy, democracy, our country’s innovative experiment, would be in peril too.
Support free press!
Carol, Your Xmas card finally made it here!
Third time was the charm! MERRY AFTER CHRISTMAS!
Was no where near as bad as my daughters cookies 2018. I think it was six trips from MN to CA, ping pong cookies. There is one every year.
There we are.
That was interesting to read. It IS a different time as the author pointed out. Back during the Nixon impeachment “partisanship did not blind members of the House and Senate to their constitutional, even patriotic, duty.” It’s going to be interesting to see what the republican senators do. Will some of them snap out of it and do the right thing? I bet there isn’t one senator that doesn’t hate Trump. To know him is to hate him, I’m sure.
A new book is coming out, “A Very Stable Genius,” by two Washington Post journalists. One of the excerpts was about when Rex Tillerson, Mattis and Gary Cohn tried to school Trump, to try to teach him something with drawings and dollar signs, and Trump threw a fit. The room was full of military, generals etc., and he stormed at them, calling all of them dumb and stupid, something like that. Rex Tillerson was horrified and stared at General Mattis, wondering why he didn’t say something to Trump. Mattis kept staring at the floor. According to the book that’s when Tillerson realized a Marine general was not going to contradict the Commander in Chief. It was after that scene that Tillerson became famous for saying to someone that Trump was a “fucking moron.”
I can’t wait to listen to that book, but it will be a year before I’ll be able to get my hands on it.
A repeat of yesterday’s concert miss, but this time because I misread the performance time. So again 22 minutes to the Hillside Cafe.
Back up to Bryan Hall for a piano recital, thence home down the B Street sidewalk which deicer had improved the traction.
Day 6: 139+43=182 minutes.
Sidewalk might be slippery:
Or he’s break dancing, lol.
Or about to break something!
Looked up at my outdoor camera monitor, it’s snowing, as predicted. The deck is white, the table is white, the ground around the bird feeders is white. Looks like a bit of shoveling is in my future.
Jill, me and Brian’s nephew’s wife, who is from Nepal, went to Maru this afternoon for sushi. Delicious, as usual. Manisha is interesting to be around. Her and Jeremiah are living with Jeremiah’s parents. He has a sister and a brother. The sister, Mikala, is mean to Manisha and poor Manisha doesn’t understand it. Listening to her tell the stories, and listening to her tell us how she thinks, her observations, she’s amazing! What a difference a girl raised in Nepal is from one raised here in the U.S.
Jill told me Mikala is bipolar, as is her dad. Seems the family indulges her bad behavior because they don’t want to set her off. That sure seems like the wrong thing to do in my book, but I’ve never known anyone mentally ill.
I asked Manisha if there are things wrong with kids in her country, like ADD, ADHD Autism, any issues like that since just about every kid born here now has something wrong with them. She said no, everyone’s normal and she’s only met one person in her life that was mentally ill. Something is rotten in the state of the United States. We’re weird.
