What is Cryptocurrency?

I still don't understand it. But for those with an interest, this explanation from Goldman Sachs is as detailed as I've seen:


Reefer Man - Cab Calloway

Video begins a few seconds in.

I'm Getting Sentimental Over You - Tommy Dorsey

Third jab.

I was at my doctor's yesterday and the subject of the booster came up. For what it's worth he suggested I get one because I'm 66 and have medical stuff going on. He's probably 15 years younger and a lot healthier and said he's getting one. He said getting a Pfizer after two Modernas is fine.
So I guess I'm getting one soon.

Jan. 6 prosecutions (For legal beagles)

I'm providing a link to Marcy Wheeler's latest emptywheel column about the January 6 prosecutions. The column itself is interesting but I mainly wanted to point out the link in it to a 30 page brief filed by a DC public defender today. It's an impressive bit of work. The issue arises for defendants who were non violent, didn't possess anything like a weapon and didn't damage anything (those prosecutions are fairly easy) who are being charged with the felony of obstructing an official proceeding. The statute requires not only obstruction but that the obstruction be done 'corruptly', whatever that might mean (and maybe it's too vague to mean anything). Why isn't this class of defendants viewed as exercising their free speech rights and are only guilty of a misdemeanor trespass charge or the like?
Anyway, anyone interested can read the brief. The DC Public Defenders are good lawyers. That issue is headed to the US Supreme Court with a bullet.


Will the Circle Be Unbroken - June Carter, Johnny Cash & Family

Stand By Your Man - Tammy Wynette

Katharine Hepburn built this after the hurricane of 1938 washed away her parents' home, with Kate inside it!

Manhattan's narrowest townhouse for sale for $5 million.

Not for me, but I guess it will be for someone:


As delta wanes in the south it's headed for the northeast!

I know this is Scott Gottlieb, a former Trump official, but he's not an idiot, and he says delta will head north soon after wreaking havoc in the south. Not what I want to hear living in New England. Worth a look:
