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.

Arizona vote 'Audit' still MIA

The report from Cyber Ninjas wasn't delivered as promised on Monday supposedly because three ninjas caught Covid. A special meeting of the Arizona state committee that was to review the audit met in a room on Wednesday expecting delivery of the audit then. They sat around for a while twiddling their thumbs. It never arrived. Didn't come Thursday either.
