The Battle Over Dyslexia

Interesting article. It starts by suggesting that some people in the UK think dyslexia may not exist, but the real point seems to be that it is less likely to be diagnosed in families with lower incomes, thus creating a haves vs. have-nots system for children who struggle to learn how to read.

Hugh Laurie - St. James Infirmary

Most people will know Hugh Laurie as Dr. Gregory House from the TV show “House.” Some of us remember him from earlier British shows like “Jeeves and Wooster” and “Blackadder.” What you might not know is that, whenever he was shown on “House” playing the piano or guitar, that was really him.

In 2011, Hugh Laurie recorded a love letter to New Orleans called “Let Them Talk.” The album featured contributions from Alan Tussaint (seen here), Irma Thomas and Dr. John. Just do yourself a favor, buy the whole album. This is the first cut and my personal favorite.

I think I like the virtual convention better, actually

It seems more genuine, somehow. No one is playing for applause, they’re just speaking from their hearts. And if feels like there is a wider range of speakers. Michelle blew it out the first night, but the best line was probably “His only preexisting condition was trusting Trump.” I got a chill when I heard that.

Anyone else feel the same way?

Sherrod Brown is the only person in America whose hair looks better now than before COVID19

I was just watching him interviewed on The Reid Out, and it looks like he actually combed his hair.

Trump walks out of news conference after asked about Veterans Choice lie he's told over 150 times

We need more reporters to call him on it when he tells these lies.
