One of Ufi’s favorite things to do is to have me chase him while has his ring. Eventually, he drops the ring and I throw it. We played chase for a few minutes. I didn’t think we would play again.
Below is the text of a post Mom wrote on Facebook about our losing Ufi.
This has been the worst week we have had in a long time. Still, we are trying to enjoy the good moments and not get sunk by the difficult ones.
The title says it all: Ufi has cancer.
I have been very critical of Robert Muller. I shared my thoughts on Muller’s report. Yesterday, I wrote questions I wanted to see Muller answer today. With as much as I have read about, listened to, and thought about Muller and his report, I would have never imagined his testimony going the way it did.
We are hours away from Robert Muller testifying before the House intelligence and judiciary committees. Even though Muller doesn’t want to testify, and he pledges to stay within the confines of his report, tomorrow’s testimony is critical.
When They See Us is a 4-part Netflix series about the so-called Central Park Five. The story of the Central Park Five has been part of the discussion over the last few years because Donald Trump wrote a letter in all of New York City’s major papers urging the death penalty for the five boys who were between 14 and 16 years old.
While Trump’s involvement should be discussed because its even more evidence of his racism, the most important part of the story has been ignored.
Richard Rothstein’s The Color of Law is a great look at how the policies of the United States Government actively worked to segregate America. The Color of Law matters because it walks readers through laws, court opinions, and political decisions that forced America to segregate. The book also does a good job rebutting some of the arguments traditionally made in opposition to the reality that segregation was a choice made by racist and/or white supremacists to make unconstitutional segregation an American reality.
This review is of the 2019 5-part television series on the 1986 disaster at the Chernobyl nuclear plant in Ukraine.
Overall, I think the television series makes an important contribution, because it gets many thinking about something more of us should think about. The corners it cuts and the other inherent flaws of telling such a detailed story within the time constraints and limitations of television means the story isn’t accurate enough.
