My husband and I went to the UCLA Sculpture Garden this morning...

Here's some of what we saw:

These are sculptures by Matisse:

Bust of a young woman; sculptor unknown.

Another young woman; sculptor unknown.

The grounds on a cool, overcast day:

Yet another nude woman; sculptor unknown.

Loved this pine tree!

The Horse and a modern sculpture; no idea who created them!

The Horse; no idea who did the work.

Yet another nude; unknown sculptor.

My husband hanging out with yet another nude!

Meet Arnon Mishkin, the Fox News analyst who will call the winner of the election.


President Trump has sustained himself during a challenging 2020 campaign against former vice president Joe Biden with friendly interviews and support from the Fox News opinion hosts. But on Nov. 3, he can’t count on a break from the network’s political number-crunchers, who will be in charge as election results roll in.

The Fox News election “decision desk” is insulated from the right-leaning partisan pundits on the network. Arnon Mishkin, 65, leads the group of pollsters, statisticians and political scientists who will analyze the vote count, polling numbers and historical trends and determine the winners of the races for president, as well as the House and Senate races.

The operation has a track record of playing it straight and calling races correctly — even when it’s bad news for the Republicans. (Mishkin is also involved in the Fox News polling unit, which has gotten under the president’s skin throughout the campaign as it has consistently shown him running behind Biden.)

Fox News was the first to project that the Democrats would take back the majority in the House of Representatives in the 2018 midterms. In 2012, Mishkin went on camera to stiff-arm Republican strategist Karl Rove, who disputed Mishkin’s call giving Ohio’s electoral votes and the presidential election to incumbent Barack Obama.

All of it at the link.

Regarding the Lincoln Project:

What they're doing is working to get rid of tRump. They recognize that their previous actions helped create him and they want to atone for those actions. I've seen some of their videos, and they have said this. I believe them.

Next, they will get rid of the republicans who enabled and supported tRump, ALL OF THEM, root and branch.

Then they want to return to being the loyal opposition. They want to be responsible Republicans, like those in the 1950's. They realize that the country needs to have the loyal opposition to whoever is in power, and I tend to agree. As long as this is done in good faith, with consideration and respect from both sides.

I wish them luck.

The Windowsill

I remember what Obama said about Pete: Pete is the future of the Democratic Party.

And Joe Biden, on camera, promised that Pete would have a place in his administration.

This I saw myself.

He will have a spot, who knows which one, but it will remove the complaint that he's inexperienced.

I expect that he will be our President some day.

I hope to still be alive.
