Apropos of nothing relevant . . .

Watching Senate proceedings on Cspan2 . . . The camera shows the pages sitting along the side of the platform, and on the floor behind them is something that looks like, of all things, a spittoon. Do I need to get my eyes checked?

Three injections and 48 hours later...

Got covid, RSV, and flu shots. Happy to report that two mildly sore arms are the only after effect. Whew.

The loop, I'm out of it.

Just saw previews for Celebrity Jeopardy and Celebrity Wheel of Fortune , and I don't recognize any of the players. And here I thought I was pretty good at paying attention. Oh, well.

There's an easy fix for the Senate dress code.

Simply require the men to dress like the Founding Fathers — powdered wigs, ruffled shirts, and high heels.

Just for fun, picture some of them so attired; it’s either gagging or giggles.

Then can we please get back to things that really matter?

What the - - -

I'd managed to put off watching any of the 9-11 retrospectives, but history is history, so...
Anyway, they'd been showing footage of the towers burning, paper and heavier bits in the air, and the gut-wrenching sight of bodies dropping.
Then they broke for commercial, people dropping from the sky . . . delivering pizza!
Have no idea who is in charge of such scheduling, but that is just damned careless.
Ye gods.
