Well, it was nice while it lasted.

This is my favorite picture of Donald Trump.

Because you, me, and everyone else in this nation are the baby in this photo.



Hall & Oates - She's Gone

How come I'm just now finding out about this? The song is a classic, but the video they did for it may be the greatest music video ever made.

Jesus' brother James on "thoughts and prayers".

James 2: 14-17--

14 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him?
15 If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food,
16 and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit?
17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

Have any of these "Christian" assholes ever even READ this book? There's a bunch of stuff like that in there.

This is going to take a while. It SHOULD take a while.

I wish everyone would calm down. Celebrate, be happy. But don't get impatient, whatever you do.

Up until this morning, I was absolutely skeptical that anything would ever come of this. We've all had our hopes crushed so many times over so many years.

But when I read that Manafort was formally named, and then I read the indictment in full, and then out of nowhere, Manafort's helper was revealed to have made a plea arrangement weeks ago, it dawned on me that Mueller's team is not only dead serious about this, but they are only asking questions to the indicted that they absolutely already know all of the answers to. There will BE no fuckups in the case they are putting together.

All of this legal work takes time. Be patient with that. Let them do their jobs. I am confident that Mueller's team knows what they are doing.

That's an even better example.

I wish I'd thought of it.

He's looking worse every day.

And I don't mean in a figurative sense.



Within six months, this man is going to be:

A) In the ground.
B) In a hospital bed.
C) In a wheelchair in the corner of his bedroom, staring and drooling onto an old magazine on his lap that has a picture of himself on the cover.

Just hang in there, everyone. Mother Nature has your back.

So they really DO exist.



Conquistador - Procol Harum

Tower (2016) on Netflix.

If you all haven't seen this film, I recommend it.

It's a documentary about the 1966 University of Texas Tower mass shooting incident, and it's told almost ENTIRELY from the perspective of the victims, bystanders, cops and others who helped out that day. I think even the name of the gunman is only mentioned once.

It is unusual in that it mixes archival footage, rotoscoped animation, and interviews to provide a compelling picture of what it must have been really like to be there, and the extraordinary things that some of the people did to try to help the victims.

I mention this movie not because I'm encouraging wallowing in this latest absolutely horrible tragedy, but because this movie offers something that Mister Fred Rogers once told his Neighbors: When you see these terrible things on your TV, focus on all the HELPERS and what they're doing. It really helps with your perspective. I think this movie does a great job with that.
