It looks like we will have over 500,000 cases and 20,000 deaths by Monday.

"Let's open everything up by Easter", he said.

Trump can't even get Good Friday right!!

What a complete idiot! But we knew that already, right? Trump wishes everybody a HAPPY GOOD FRIDAY!


Read through some of the twitter responses. Very funny.

Ashland, Oregon: Oregon Shakespeare Festival has closed until early April

The life blood of Ashland, OSF, has decided to cancel all performances until April 8. This will have a massive impact on our city. Local businesses will possibly close. Two years ago, we lost a lot of businesses because of terrible wildfire smoke. There's no telling what this may do. Our local school district has also closed for a while.

No panic in the stores - yet. Plenty of toilet paper available

Interesting - I just looked up William Barr's Confirmation Count

in the Senate. It was 54-45. Three Dems voted Yes: Manchin, Synema, and Jones. One R voted No: Paul

Jones's comment was: He is qualified and will remain independent.

WRONG!! I wonder what Senator Jones thinks now.

I have basked in the glow of Rachel Madow

And lived to tell the tale! I just returned home from a wild 27 hour journey to San Francisco and back (14 hours of driving total) in order to attend Rachel Maddow's book release event at the City Arts & Lectures theater. The ticket included a copy of the book Blowout and I am excited to read it. The event was completely sold out on the night she announced it. I was very lucky to buy my tickets immediately so I only had to pay $59. The guys sitting behind me paid $400 each!

Anyway, she spoke for a few minutes and then read an exerpt from the book. The crowd was enthusiastic (massive understatement!) and then she was interviewed by Dan Pfeiffer (President Obama's Communications Director). It was all so funny and fabulous - like having my own personal Rachel Maddow Show without any commercials. It was ALL A-block! And she left us (as she always does) laughing, better educated, and hopeful.

The audio of the event will be posted on the City Arts & Lectures podcast at some point in the near future, and it will be offered on KQED 88.5 FM soon. The website is cityarts.net. I will post again when I see that it is available. Be sure to listen!

We lost our sweet Riley today

He had surgery three weeks ago to remove his spleen. Turns out it was cancerous. He started going down hill this morning and we knew there was nothing more we could do.

He was a beautiful, smart, sweet German Shepherd Dog and we loved him immensely. If I knew how to post a photograph of him (neither click-and-drag, nor copy-paste works), I would.

Our fur babies help to make the world a kinder place. If you are fortunate to have one in your life, please give it a hug from me because I can't do that at my house any more.
