This post has updates on my eye, our broken furnace, Ufi, and my playing basketball.
Robin Progrebin and Kate Kelly’s The Education of Brett Kavanaugh wants to be an investigative account of the confirmation process that landed Brett Kavanaugh (Kavanaugh) on the Supreme Court. If you followed the process, especially the parts of it involving Dr. Christine Blacey Ford’s (Ford) allegation that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her while they were in high school, the book won’t provide a lot of new insight. The books, epilogue, though, leaves readers with the book’s most important point.
Ufi is an amazing dog! Here is another story that demonstrates how special he is and how lucky we are to have him.
Brenda Wineapple’s The Impeachers covers the impeachment of Andrew Johnson. Given the current impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump, The impeachers is an important read. The reality that many don’t understand the Johnson impeachment, makes The Impeachers even more important.
As always, I feel the need to remind people I’m supporting Bernie Sanders. His recent heart attack has done nothing to diminish my support of Sanders. Millions of Americans have had heart attacks and gone on to be very productive.
With that out of the way, I want to add a few random thoughts on the state of the race.
Donald Trump is the least competent person to ever serve as president of the United States. He is also a white supremacist, sexist, ableist, xenophobic, homophobic, transphobic moron who builds his base by encouraging hatred.
I have been in favor of impeachment since the day he took office. I have believed impeachment was the right course of action for Democrats since Mueller stumbled through his weak testimony in July.
Given the events of the last few weeks, it should be obvious that the impeachment of Donald Trump is an absolute must.
Yesterday I had the long-awaited major surgery on my right eye. As the title says, I don’t have cancer!
I wasn’t able to avoid the larger surgery on my eye. So, today is the big day.
This time we have news on my eye, Ufi, and Scorpio.
With the House finally beginning an impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump, I decided to read Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein’s All the President’s Men. The book is about the Watergate scandal and coverup that resulted in Richard Nixon resigning and several members of his administration serving time.
