Here’s where the Mueller investigation seems to stand. Buckle up, kids: it just might be a bumpy ride.
An Ivy-educated gay friend supports Trump.
How can this be, I ask him every week or two.
“Loathsome person,” he responded most recently in the wake of the Syria pull-out. “But right policies. See Andrew Sullivan.”
Outgoing Senator Claire McCaskill is a great American. Listen as she tells it like it is — including her straight talk to some on the left.
Things are a mess (obviously). And yet she tells us to buck up: the country will survive the current insanity.
I like to think she’s right . . . but […]
OK, I’m back.
I got a great pair of sneakers and some fudge but Santa swept my pool into the ocean. I must have been more naughty than nice.*
Good, no? A really constructive solution.
*But it was worth it.
There’s SO much to say, but it’s Christmas Eve.
So in the spirit of Christmas, which transcends religion or politics — and Santa having been found in a court of law to exist! — I stand down until Wednesday.
Call it a Christmas Eve truce.
And wonder — cliched though this thought surely is […]
Three minutes, pure fun. (Thanks, Mel!)
Green Book‘s 95% Rotten Tomatoes audience score suggests I’m not going out on a limb recommending it.
You still haven’t listened to the Bag Man podcast?
Or watched The Kominsky Method?

Democrats have a wealth of talented people I’d love to see in the Oval Office. Here’s just one — Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy — as recently interviewed in the Washington Post.
I hope it’s still playing near you: Green Book is ten stars out of ten. You have to see it.
Two-minute video going around the Internet (thanks, Mel):
Our Grandchildren need to see this, to give a little perspective on life. This is a VERY touching video, actually a piece of film that has been made into a video, this is one that is NOT photo shopped, it’s the real scene! Notice in the opening […]
So it’s come to this: Forbes explains the Russian connection.
[Younger readers: For decades, Forbes has been an iconic business magazine, with the in-your-face-Karl-Marx motto: The Capitalist Tool. I never got to ride on the jet — also named The Capitalist Tool — but Malcolm Forbes gave me a money-green Capitalist Tool tie that hangs […]
The Atlantic‘s George Packer asks, How Did The Republican Party Get So Corrupt? In small part:
. . . Republican majorities are rushing to pass laws that strip away the legitimate powers of newly elected Democratic governors while defeated or outgoing Republican incumbents are still around to sign the bills. Even if the courts […]
Sorry for the erratic posting. I spent a very good — but long — day with 200 fellow DNC donors from around the country this week and there was no time to write a column.
My top-line report? This is the most professional DNC I’ve seen in my 20+ years’ involvement. The considerable sum I […]
Quote of the Day
Years ago, in the Carter term, a stockbroker tried to explain what Schlumberger did. 'It goes to 100,' the broker said, exaggerating only a little bit. 'Then it splits three-for-two and goes back to 100 again.'~GRANT'S Interest Rate Observer
