What happened yesterday? The stock market turned around and ended up. My team was trounced in trivial pursuit. Barbara is pissed off because the internet on the ship is not working well, she intensely dislikes sea days and we have five more before reaching Papeete. I am not sure what I will do today, but I know I am not hanging out in our cabin.
We do get to see the ship’s galleys for lunch today. There are 48 chefs assisting in the kitchen.
What happened to Tyre Nichols is a disgrace — just one more in a long line of disgraces. What is wrong with our country? My readers are asking me as if I had any idea. I have been grappling with the hate and prejudice in America and am bewildered. Most everything is red or blue. What ever happened to red, white and blue?
Today Biden and McCarthy meet for the first time. I do not expect it to be pretty. McCarthy has backed himself into a corner. Sometimes I think Biden has been way to mild mannered, but that is his style and it has worked, not always, but a good deal of the time I think it is the right approach at least for now. Someone besides Biden has to tell McCarthy he is wrong. I vote for the voters telling him.
I just saw that 75% of Santos’ constituents want him to resign. I do not see that happening. At least this lunatic is now no longer on any committees.
Am I the only one who does not remember committee assignments being headline news? I think it is now because our government is so dysfunctional.
Nikki Haley is going to run for President. Anyone think she has a chance?
Waiting for Trump to say Haley’s running is also an act of disloyalty. In fact, if truth be known, under a truth serum, Trump would say that anyone who ran against him from either party was being disloyal.
It will be a real circus to watch the squabble between Trump and DeSantis. It will continue to escalate and get nastier and nastier. Then, I predict, they will make up and deny ever saying what everyone heard them say etc etc.
Our ship is now on Pacific Coast time, three hours earlier than EST so my posts will be later each day and continue to be later until I can write them before I go to bed.
See you tomorrow. At least that is my plan.
