My thanks to Summer Sights, my Web mistress, for getting this site back up and on a firmer footing.
Please watch former CIA operations officer Evan McMullin on how the Vladimir Putin manipulated our election. (Seven minutes.) Are we really going to let Putin and the KGB win?
Renee: “At this point, according to a couple of Hamilton […]
OK. Finally free of Verio, which was simply not up to the task of hosting websites reliably. (Wikipedia: “In early 2000 Verio was sold to NTT at . . . a total cost slightly exceeding $5 billion. . . . In late May 2015, Verio . . . was sold to The Endurance International Group, […]
So Verio, my host provider, decided to move everyone over to a new system. Unfortunately, both the old system (this one) and the new one failed at the same time. It took five days to get the old one back up, and here I am — though I expect at least one more outage of […]
It’s called the emoluments clause, and it basically says no officer of the United States can be on the receiving end of any kind […]

But first, by way of thanks for your subscription, free tickets to an off-Broadway show that I’ve also discussed, “Buyer and Cellar” (“Delicious and wickedly funny!” — New York Times) . . . which I’m able […]
This being my FIVE THOUSANDTH COLUMN (according to WordPress; actually, it seems not to have archived the first 100 or so, but why quibble?), I could either try to write something exceptional today — or just take the day off.

A Goldman Sachs partner’s take on Steve Mnuchin, Trump’s pick for Treasury: “Not a bad guy at all. But I don’t know anyone at Goldman who would tell you he has the gravitas to be Secretary of Treasury.”
Being the change candidate, Trump has apparently chosen a Goldman partner […]
On the remote chance you didn’t find things to give thanks for last Thursday, take four minutes to watch this man’s life and be thankful you weren’t born in Sierra Leone — and inspired by his mission.
Things will surely be a thousand times better here in America than they are in Sierra Leone; but […]
