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.

Rudy Giuliani has been banned from Fox News.

Politico's Playbook is reporting that Rudy Giuliani has been banned from Fox News for nearly three months now. He was not allowed to appear on Fox's 9/11 coverage. The ban extends to his son Andrew who is running for NY governor. The order came 'directly from the top', which could only mean Rupert Murdoch.

Time for a 9/11 style Covid Commission!

I guess the bills for one have been floating around in Congress since the beginning of the year going nowhere.
All the experts seem to think it's going to happen again so it's time to see what we can learn about mistakes that were made, the things we did right. Any lessons to be drawn from what other countries did
Can we do anything internationally to allow for greater transparency when an outbreak occurs. Apparently China wouldn't share info at the beginning.
Lots of issues. May as well try to learn something.
