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.

This is the first time I have seen such a story. I expect it will start a trend. $200 more a month. That will get people's attention.

Latest on the Hurricane.

Seems it's shifted a bit east overnight. Expected to make landfall at Block Island and then the CT-RI border. The New Haven area may have lucked out a bit.

Why Aren't MLB games Covid super spreader events?

I'm just wondering. Every team is back to full capacity. I imagine MLB is drawing decent crowds. People close together for several hours. Games happening all over the country many days of the week. No one is even checking vax status. But I haven't heard of any outbreaks. Anyone have any thoughts?

Hurricane Report From Connecticut

Just got a recorded call from the mayor. He said to stay off the roads from 8AM Sunday to 8AM Monday. Heavy winds Sunday afternoon into Sunday night. Heavy rain Sunday. They expect 40 percent of the utility customers to lose power for days
Sounds like I have a decent chance of being knocked off DU for awhile. I guess losing power will be the biggie unless you're quite near the shore.

How to watch the Central Park Concert without cable.

There are instructions on how to watch at the end of this article. Apparently it will be livestreamed on CNN platforms and you won't need a cable login.
