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.

Elizabeth Holmes sentencing in September?

The government and the defendant are both proposing a sentencing date in September on account of 'ongoing proceedings in another matter'. That's an extraordinarily long delay. Is the government thinking of using her as a witness in the trial of her ex-boyfriend? That would be a shock.

Dr. Forman, among his other duties is head of radiology at the Yale New Haven ER which has been packed lately.

As he always says: Get boosted!

NYC may have peaked. With caveats.

People aren't saying for sure but the City's chart of cases looks promising:

The link should be good. The chart may take a little time to load.
