What was is no more.

Growing up in the 1950s had its charms. Ike and Mamie were in the White House, new cars rolled along newly built highways. My parents and their friends were Republicans. Living in our “neighborhood” meant that we learned to show up for each other to offer help when it was needed and to gather for celebrations like births and graduations. Borrowing a cup of sugar or lending a couple of eggs was no big deal. We were raised to be kind, we were expected to become decent human beings. And for the life of me, I cannot begin to imagine anyone in today’s Republican party fitting into that environment, and that is profoundly and painfully sad.

Echo

In a weird echo of Bradbury’s fiction novel “Fahrenheit 451”, in which firemen are tasked with burning books, Betsy DeVos is now in charge of education.

In this terrible hour

some of us can take great solace in the company we keep. Our county Democrats held our re-org last weekend, in the course of which we elected new officers. And our new chairperson is a TEACHER. No one has to ask us what we value.

Colbert

His first half hour was pretty much "old" Colbert.

Loved it!

"Surprisingly realistic"

Didn't catch his name, but the broadcaster on MSNBC just now referred to Melissa McCarthy's latest SNL gig as "a surprisingly realistic impersonation" of Sean Spicer.

Yeehaw.
