While I try to think of something consequential to say, let me get a few vagrant thoughts off my mind and into cyberspace.
First: In these terrible times, it is extremely important to take any pleasures life offers where and when they are offered. Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III, Attorney-General of the United States, is arguably the most despicable person in America -- not the most evil, not the one first in line for eternal damnation, just the most despicable. It is now reported that immediately upon the appointment of Robert Mueller as Special Counsel, Donald Trump exploded and cursed out Sessions, calling him an idiot and suggesting that he resign. Sessions later said it was the worst public humiliation of his life. Now that isn't much, I admit, but God, it is something! We must be thankful for small favors. As William Kristol said when he first met Sarah Palin, it made a little thrill run up my leg.
Second: I pose the following question as a general conundrum, suitable for debate on this blog. Suppose it turns out that the 800,000 Dreamers can be saved from harassment and deportation at the price of an appropriation to build Trump's useless, worthless boondoggle, THE WALL. Taking into consideration, on one side, the very real value of protecting the dreamers, and on the other side, the very real political danger of giving Trump any victories at all, should the Democrats take the deal?
Third: Can anyone offer concrete, factual reasons for me to believe that Serena Williams will return from motherhood to play competitive tennis again?
Finally: Can anyone explain to me the seemingly limitless TV fascination with The Undead?
