About Me

65 years old. Lifelong democrat. Saw JFK in New Haven CT on election eve 1960. I was all of 5 years old. Cast my first vote for Jimmy Carter. Stayed up all night at the English Speaking Union I London to watch the returns. We celebrated the results about 9 AM London time. I cried the morning I learned Bobby Kennedy had been shot. I don't think I ever quite recovered, although President Obama's election helped a lot. These days I'm a moderate democrat and a cultural conservative. I miss the world of good manners, fancy dress and dancing cheek to cheek. Big TCM fan.

Kyiv is feeling more and more like Kyiv.

Wonderful videos in the short thread.


I hope soon to be able to visit a free and peaceful Ukraine

Multiple reports of Ukraine going on the offensive in Kherson.

Kherson is in SW Ukraine near Crimea.
I've been following rumors since last night but we are beginning to get some confirmation. Don't know how large or what will happen. But hoping for the best. Maybe it takes pressure off Donbas?
I'll report more if I read anything.

I don't know how many could have been saved but the police shouldn't have waited. Children's lives were at stake.

Guns will be banned when Trump talks to the NRA tomorrow.

From today's NY Times:

The event’s political keynoters — Gov. Greg Abbott of Texas, Senator Ted Cruz and Gov. Kristi Noem of South Dakota — all plan to attend. Former President Donald J. Trump is scheduled to appear on Friday, although those in attendance will be prohibited from carrying firearms to his speech by the Secret Service.
