Fools Die is on my list for one of my favorite musical renditions - and Tosh's voice - damn!

I had full confidence that you would provide the links to the music we need! Just as I have full confidence that we've won the White House!

I am a lucky man to have a Sister like you! I appreciate you so much!

sound off the wall .....but, yesterday a good friend stopped in to see me. Decades ago, I trained him on proper "community crises response." He became my partner on these cases, and we had some adventures when we headed out from the clinic to respond to calls. As one of my sons was here, my buddy told him about some of those adventures.

This was before the state's OMH changed the policies per community response. Police are now tasked with those situations. He told my son about the first call I took him out on -- the very disturbed son of a retired cop had stolen the father's hand gun, and the household was rather tense. Now, I've had a shotgun pointed at my head (a large target!) at an 18 inch distance. That is not pleasant. But I'm still here, right?

On the drive, my buddy was very nervous. I gave him instructions on exactly what we needed to look for when we arrived. Now, I was alert, because you have to process all the factors that under normal circumstance, you wouldn't pick up on. The same process, I think, is required when we shift from an individual community crisis, to a national crisis ..... and that, of course, is exactly where we find ourselves today. Hence, on the drive here, I've tried to point out those things we need to focus on, what factors are most important in determining how we reach the resolution we seek.

Note: About 15 minutes after the gentleman holding the shotgun to my head was disarmed and in handcuffs, I did head to the nearest store and bought a bottle of fine wine. Ha! And I'll admit that my hands were shaking when I opened it. It wasn't the last time I had a gun pointed at me. Never pleasant, that.

on facebook, reading things on a "county forum." One fellow wrote that he has loaded all of his guns this very morning, and wanted to give Biden supporters faid warning to not "tread on (him)," or else.

Feeling alert as a consequence of our conversation here, I attempted to put his mind at ease. I noted that we Biden supporters would use the same care in avoiding treading upon him, as we take to avoid stepping in cat shit, since both are difficult to wipe off one's shoes.

It's a nice day here in the northeast. Blue sky, and relatively warm. Feels like Caucasian Summer to me. Type of day to blast Bob Marley and celebrate the Biden-Harris victory!

it is done. There will be attempts to deny Biden the victory, but they will fail. Then the real struggle begins.

I am just pissed off as hell.

I want to punch every GOPer I encounter.

I should probably get off the internet until it’s done.

When should I check back?

Thank you for cheering me up for a bit.

I think you will begin to be feeling much better. This will go on until at least Friday morning, but there may be some weak legal challenges that go on for a bit longer.

While I would never recommend violence, I would suggest that you head to your local hardware store and purchase a nice hammer. Use this when you encounter annoying republicans, to assist them in seeing the light.

By tomorrow night, it will be very clear that Joe Biden won. That's actually about 18 hours than I had anticipated.

In the popular vote, his margin will be between 7 and 9 million.
