    The Race for the 2020 POTUS elections

    I did see the debates, although I had to wait for the repeat broadcast at 1:00 a.m. I found most of the candidates somewhat subdued, probably due to the events of the day. I don't know who I'll vote for yet; the issues that I care a great deal about are seldom or never mentioned by any...

    Your frustration is palpable, Gerry. Thanks for updating us on Lee's progress.

    Your Forehead Slapping Moment(s)

    My glasses are my downfall. While watering my garden I tripped over a bush and could have sworn I knocked my glasses off in the process. My neighbor asked me what I was looking for as I crawled between the bushes. When I told him, he gently told me I was wearing them!

    This Is Us

    I loved last night's (10/8) show, especially the way it ended. For those who have not yet seen it, I'll leave it at that. :)

    The Race for the 2020 POTUS elections

    Re: Warren and Clinton, one thing I remember about the 2016 campaign was how frequently Elizabeth Warren appeared on the campaign stage with Clinton, and with such gusto! Warren had already made quite a name for herself in Washington; the crowds loved her and I made note to follow her in the future.

    Gun violence (Again!)

    I saw the press conference in Dayton with Sherrod Brown and the mayor. Any opportunity to hear Sherrod Brown is time well spent, imo. He closed out his remarks by making a point of thanking members of the media. They don't get a lot of thanks. IMO, they should.

    Yang is just plain interesting!

    In Honor of the First Man on the Moon - 50th Anniversary

    I was in my early 20s and my daughter was about to turn one year old when the Apollo 11 moon landing occurred. We watched much of the television coverage, and T was amazingly quiet as she sat beside me as I explained to her that, although she would not remember the event later, she was "there!"...

    Second Democratic Debate

    I remember only Swalwell making the ageist comments to Biden, pretty much destroying any shred of credibility he may have had, IMO.

    Dangers of a Trump Presidency--Part 7

    I spit out my cocoa when I read that!

    The Race for the 2020 POTUS elections

    I was pleased with Swalwell's focus on gun reform. Others have danced around common sense gun control in the past but none have come out with this a major campaign issue as far as I can recall. It has been one of my major concerns for as long as I can remember!

    Dangers of a Trump Presidency--Part 7

    O.K. Tired of the repetitious media coverage of 45 as I am? Then start choosing your media more wisely! I have control over my remote and so do you! There is freedom of the press in this country and we must cherish it lest we will lose it, just as we must guard our freedom of choice.
