No one should miss Liz Cheney’s speech last night conceding her loss. It was by far the finest concession speech I have ever heard. In fact, I can think of few political speeches of any kind that were better. All I can say is “wow”.

Cheney declared all-out war on Donald Trump. She sliced him into little bitty parts with the precision of a world renowned surgeon. I cannot remember being more impressed by the words of any politician.


The Marlins won 4 to 3 but not before squandering a 3 to 0 lead. It was the first time in over a month they won two games in a row. I was scheduled to go to the game with daughter Beth and son Steven. However, I had to cancel because Barbara needed me to drive her around to some of the early voting places. With her arm in a cast due to a broken wrist, she has trouble driving.

There is another game late this afternoon that I also have to miss because it is granddaughter Alanna’s birthday. She is son Charles’ youngest, named for my Father, Allan. Alanna is planning to go into some form of nursing and she will be great. Her Brother Ryan goes off to college at FSU tomorrow.

Yesterday was the first day of school for Beth’s daughter Kasey who is now in the Honors program. Steven’s daughter Harper did very, very well in some testing. She is one of four in South Broward who achieved some kind of distinction. Both Granddaughters now have to experience the hell created in the college admission process.


I have mentioned this before but keep coming back to it. Why are the Republicans betting their future on a falling star? I understand that Trump has somehow miraculously landed on his feet no matter what he said or did. The reaction was, “Oh, the Donald is just acting out, not to worry”.

If I were Trump or a Trump supporter or someone who was betting his or her entire future on Trump, I would not be optimistic. I would start hedging my bets. If I worked for a law firm or a company which I saw on the brink of ruin, I would start sending out resumes. I do not see that happening.


Finished the Baldacci book. Liked it.


Stock market has had a good run lately but way down today.


Just heard the State Attorney from Hillsborough County who was suspended by DeSantis. I hope he wins the appeal, but it is not an easy issue.


Rubio could be in trouble. Wouldn’t that be great?

If I were Biden, I would say something today that is very supportive of Liz Cheney. Despite her very Conservative views, she refused to sell out our Democracy in order to hold on to her office.


I would like to move on from Afghanistan. Personally, I just do not care. We did what we did.


Had my trainer last two days and again this morning. He handles me very well.


What lawyers would want to represent Donald Trump? Now although she is no box of chocolates, I might want to represent his Wife———-pro bono.


Go Ukraine and vote as if your life depended on it.
