Lindsey Graham has lost the first round in his efforts to quash a Fulton County, Georgia Grand Jury subpoena. There is no doubt that Graham will appeal and keep appealing until he runs out of courts. Then, he can call Ginni Thomas


There is no question in my mind that there is a sufficient basis to charge Donald Trump with multiple crimes, and that, not withstanding the fact that he is a Past President, he should be prosecuted. Whether he is convicted is another issue.


I cannot remember the last time I ever rooted for a particular Republican to win. It is just my luck that I have now picked a Republican with almost no chance to win: Liz Cheney. In the vernacular of Damon Runyon, “She is a standup broad”. She is also smart and been right about almost every word she has spoken during the January 6 committee hearings.


Ambivalence was once defined as watching your mother-in-law go over a cliff in your new car. I am ambivalent about the outcome of Twitter’s lawsuit against Musk. On the one hand, I would like to see Musk handed his ass, which could mean he has to go through with the $44 billion purchase. On the other hand, if Twitter wins and Musk owns the company, he will reinstate Trump’s rights to use Twitter.


As I feared, the Marlins lost another game at home they should have won. In the first two games of this home stand, all they could muster was a total of 3 runs. Good pitching and at least adequate defense not enough. I am going tonight.


Yesterday, I received an email from Seabourne laying out some non-trivial changes in our itinerary. All in all, it was a mixed bag. At least the number of sea days did not increase. Barbara much prefers ports. The best change is we get an extra day in Sydney, Australia, which is a place I really like. It is only place where a taxi driver told me I had given him too big a tip.

We miss going to Cook Islands and Solomon Islands as well as New Guinea, all places I had never been so that is not good. We get an extra day in Cairns, but have already been to Great Barrier Reef and I do not care to go back. Barbara may want to as as she is an accomplished swimmer whereas I am barely water safe.


If I were Attorney General Garland, I would start looking alive. He might be really on top of things, but we have no way of knowing it. So much of politics is perception. and he is flunking.


Have my trainer at 8 a.m.this morning. Major breakthrough yesterday with respect to my ability to walk up the stairs. I was putting my weight, not inconsiderable, on my toes which put pressure on my knees and that hurt. By putting my weight on my heels, going up the stairs became much easier and much less painful. It took a while to figure this out, but finally did.


Go Ukraine, and vote as if your life depended upon it
