Cat reboot

Mom's white cat, Duchess, lived to the ripe old age of 23. When she passed, we knew Mom would soon follow. That said, Mom was anxious to vote and when her ballot arrived in the mail the first mark she made was next to Hillary Clinton's name. Her health went into decline a few days later, and she passed without knowing the outcome of the election. I know she would have cheered the marchers on. So, I found a picture of a white kitty and added the pink accessory. Mom would have gotten a huge kick out of it. Duchess, on the other paw, would have curled up for a nap after giving me that look.

Everything

Watching the coverage of the massive gatherings in DC and Denver and around the planet, I have no delusion that Trump will either hear us or give a damn. But, by God, just as the world is hearing us we are hearing each other and that is EVERYTHING!

Trump just said

"It was a movement."


We already knew that.

Auspicious?

Okay, so I caved. Decided to at least watch the parade. So there he was, standing on the steps. And the military band starts up with a traditional march, and as they marched by him in the drizzle these lyrics emerged from memory:

"Be kind to your web-footed friends, for a duck may be somebody's mother. Be kind to your friends in the swamp, where the weather is very, very damp..."

Off. Then on. Off again.

Seeing reports of violent protest I switched on the teevee. Sure enough, they were showing it. Having a number of friends who went to DC I grew concerned. Then, MSNBC started showing other scenes of the parade route, lots of peaceful protest signs. And one of my on-scene friends just started posting pics on Facebook, pics of respectful and decidedly non-violent protest.

Yeah, I know, “If it bleeds it leads” governs media coverage. Which makes me doubly appreciate any media effort to show the non-bleeding.

The teevee will now be switched off, as they are now showing the luncheon where the All Republican Congressional Castrati Choir is performing their paean to their new master. No, thanks.

No doubt

With good reason, Trump enters office with the worst possible expectations of any president in our history. No doubt he will ensure that none of those expectations are disappointed.

Will there be "eyes" on events in DC?

Does anyone know if there will be any non-MSM live-streaming from DC tomorrow? Doubt that any mainstream media will give appropriate weight to protests. Here's hoping that someone will record what actually happens.
