INFRASTRUCTURE. I’ve been writing about it forever. “Now let’s get it done” — 30 seconds.
FOOLS. “The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are so certain of themselves, yet wiser people so full of doubts.” — Bertrand Russell
If the world is round not flat / Biden the rightfully-elected president not Trump, then reviewing these 24 impediments to rational thought can help explain why tens of millions believed / believe otherwise even after the evidence was indisputable.
FADERSMITH. I know about that site because my pal Henry sent it to me. Henry is Dan’s husband — Dan whose new album (streaming here free) I plugged yesterday. Great music to accompany water volleyball, or anything else fast-paced and exciting. (Not golf.)
When I say “yesterday,” I mean the column that hit your inbox Thursday. Today’s, like quite a few “Friday” posts, hit Saturday — and there is a reason for that: why should Friday have all the fun?

SAVING THE WORLD. The DNC has begun organizing in nine target states — Virginia, New Jersey, Arizona, Georgia, Wisconsin, Michigan, North Carolina, Nevada, and Pennsylvania — with more to follow.

Have a great weekend!
