Thanks, Alabama, for the fabulous anniversary present!!!

This is my wedding anniversary and I thought that already was enough reason to be happy and thankful. But I gotta say, this election isn't just the frosting on the cake, this is the whole bakery department! http://i49.photobucket.com/albums/f288/Lin-Mar/5th1000/Thoughts-of-the-Dog-Doug-Jones-victory...

Hostile/defensive architecture

Architectural features designed to be repellent to humans are ruining our cities. For example, spiked underpasses -- https://coolmedium.files.wordpress.com/2015/05/anti-homeless-spikes.jpg Here are some other examples one can easily find using Google Images: https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&t...

Checking out comments on Twitter this morning...

I'm gratified to see that others enjoy Nicolle Wallace and John Heilemann as much as I do. (For those who miss Keith on the teevee, you may get a similar buzz from JH. He doesn't have Keith's golden tonsils, but some of the same vibe. And spells his name w/2 Ns. :-) https://twitter.com/search?f=twee...

Re: The Silence Breakers: Times person(s) of the year

That Taylor Swift is on the cover as a representative says it all: she talks like a feminist every now and then when it suits her, particularly when she has an album out, but doesn't dare stick her neck out politically. I admire the sentiment, but I fear this is bread and circus for the left, just ...

Re: The Silence Breakers: Times person(s) of the year

Unfortunately I think this is another situation where people at the extremes (both left and right but not necessarily in equal amounts) will end up marginalizing those at the center and ultimately politicizing something that should transcend politics. Driven by the need to create an appearance, rat...

Re: I Tweet, Therefore I Am

A week ago (scroll back 3), Central Park still looked like October. Now it's a lot more seasonal -- Amazingly, this is NOT a B&W photo http://i49.photobucket.com/albums/f288/Lin-Mar/5th1000/12-9-17CentralPark-NOT-a-black-and-white-photo.png https://twitter.com/KeithOlbermann/status/9395744132672...

Re: Franken plans to resign within the coming weeks

Al Franken has today announced plans to resign "within the coming weeks." It shouldn't take that long for Kirsten Robespierr-- oops, I mean Gillibrand -- to realize the complete fultility and pointlessness of calling for Franken's resignation in order to claim "the moral high ground&...

Re: Franken plans to resign within the coming weeks

I think they felt that based on the nature of the allegations that he was going down anyway and that the Republicans were going to turn the process into a circus. Better for him to fall on his own sword now and put pressure on Roy Moore before the election rather than waiting until Moore is already...

The Silence Breakers: Times person(s) of the year

Let's see how long this "movement" (nowadays everything's a movement) lasts. Flavor of the month -- it's only been a month since Weinstein scandal broke -- or real, lasting societal change? We shall see. I'm always hopeful, yet old enough to have seen these flashes of enlightenment come an...

McCain requests followers, inspires followers to LEAVE

Apparently many ppl didn't realize they were following McCain and coming on the heels of his Senate vote supporting the Trump tax bill, his request for more Twitter followers has had the OPPOSITE effect. Remember, he was only 74 away from 3-million followers when he first posted this: https://twitte...
