The problem is: the voters of Kentucky would re-elect him in an instant and

by a landslide, if given the chance today.
The second problem is: Senate Republicans would re-elect him as the majority leader today, if given the chance.

Therefore: small solace that he is unpopular nationally.

(I don't mean to rain on your parade, demmiblue; I'm just in one of those "so what does it profit us" moments.)

I have the feeling Barron won't have an easy time at his new school.

Even though the school is exclusive and pricey, he will be subject to a lot of scrutiny from the students who have gone there for a number of years and are established with friends.

Barron is a tall kid for his age, which can be a plus, but a little angular . He will likely fill out more in the next year or two.
Hope he can hold his own when the inevitable jokes and put-downs occur.

A friend said to me, when I complained of having to take meds, " We are so lucky to have them."

My friend is so wise , and so correct in this instance.

Fifty-to-sixty years ago, meds, especially psychotropic drugs, were in their infancy.
Up until then, from the dawn of history, people, and their families, just suffered when they had a medical imbalance.

Now, treatment is available, perhaps not for all disorders, perhaps not permanent fixes, but what a relief it is to be rid of the suffering so relatively easily, at least compared to the days before meds were available.

Did you notice how pleasant it was today to not have to hear about "that man"

while all the nation's attention was on the solar eclipse?
So peaceful.
I would be content to never hear his name again.

Just wondering. - After cataract surgery, one has artificial lenses.

Would they also be impacted by looking at the sun?

Is Pence a Mr. Milquetoast? (Does anyone here remember that term, and the

comics-strip character by that name?)

Field's mother, Samantha Bloom, has had tragedies in her life.

Her father killed her mother and then himself, while she was still a child.

Her child's father was a passenger and killed in an automobile accident before the child was born. The father may have been an irresponsible person, but Samantha Bloom therefore had the responsibility of raising her son herself.

The reason for her being wheelchair bound has not been published, as far as I know, but obviously that made her life and the task of raising her son more difficult.

Guess Richard Cordrey can't join the debates until he officially announces

that he will run for governor.

And, if Cordrey announces he will run for governor, he will have to resign his current position in the Federal Government as Consumer Affairs czar.
A dilemma.

I, for one, would be interested in seeing and hearing how Cordrey does as a campaigner; how he fares opposite the other Dem candidates.
Cordrey has the bona fides to run as the Dem nominee, but sometimes that isn't enough.
Dems need a strong, appealing person if they hope to get some traction against the Republican challengers.
