    Voting: What’s Happening in your State

    I dropped off my mail-in ballot this morning at the only location available in my county of about a million folks in Texas. Yes, the limits are still be litigated, but I wanted to get it done now. It was about 8:30 am and the election worker told me that I came at a good time--no lines. There...

    Broadway musicals

    Along the same lines, I discovered YouTube recordings of the annual MCC's MisCast gala, where performers do songs for roles in which they would never best cast--men in women's roles and vice versa. A few of my faves: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vQ8oGZvIIYc...

    Broadway musicals

    Thanks so much for the link. I don't know how I feel about such a different take on a musical that I have known and loved for so long. I also wonder how it will impact reaction to the upcoming Spielberg film. It will be quite a year for WSS fans, no matter what.

    YouTube musical discoveries

    I hope that it's OK to link to a well-known performer that I re-discovered this week. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f7MbmXklj3Q&list=RDf7MbmXklj3Q&start_radio=1 I forgot how amazing Joni Mitchell was until I found this video. She seems to be so of that time yet timeless.

    The Race for the 2020 POTUS elections

    Living for twenty years in the blue dot in the middle of a red state like Texas, I can tell you that O'Rourke's only three point loss to Cruz was a surprise to me. You can't downplay how hard it is for a Democrat to get elected here--Cruz may not appear to be "popular" but Republicans will vote...

    Dangers of a Trump Presidency--Part 7

    Yes, only because it is not a tax bill. Those must originate in the House. If it passes the Senate, it will go to the House which will not pass it, I imagine, so we're back to square one.
