My MoveON petition - Hillary, release transcripts of your Wall Street speeches.

Not one Trump or Hillary signs.

Today, my uncle talked about his time in the Korean conflict.

He never talked about it before. Today he was talking about the bombs exploding around him. One guy responded by shooting a hole in his foot so he would be sent home.

I told him about Pvt. Eddie Slovak, the only U.S. soldier to be shot for desertion during W.W.II. Slovak was offered the choice of court martial or the front lines. He chose the court martial. My uncle said he could understand the choice.

Not much, but it was something.

I frequently drive my friends to the airport. Local charge would normally be $70., if they used a car service. Instead, they ask me and they pay me $50.00. I am asked if I want the $50 or should they donate to a charity. Depending on my particular circumstances, I take the money or select a charity.

They asked me to drive them today. At the end of the ride, "Do you want $50.00 or should we make a contribution somewhere? I thought about the usual charities I sometimes suggest and then it came to me.

Give it to Bernie Sanders. Suddenly, there were three happy people in the car.
