“ROGUE KILLERS” Gee, I didn’t know Mike Pompeo was a trained investigator. The amiable buffoon allowed himself to be dispatched to Riyadh to provide credibility to the Saudi fake “rogue killer” story. He traveled all that way to prove he’s a fool?
“CRIMINALS POURING ACROSS THE BORDER ” NYT’S EMILY COCHRANE reports (@ESCochrane): “I asked President Trump what evidence he had that ‘hardened criminals’ are trying to enter the country. ‘Oh please, please, don’t be a baby,’ was his response.” At least two TV networks have stationed reporters with the caravan and they seem to be finding mostly women and children. Hmmmmm.
NIKKI HALEY profiled in the WAPO. She’s pretty formidable. Running in 2020? Read about her HERE
-Our Fake President is fond of murderous tyrants like Kim and the Saudis. What more do you need to know about where he would be trying to lead our country if he had the leadership ability to do so? At this point, his incompetence is expensive but not determinative. I wonder what his excuse will be when the GOP loses big in the midterms? Oh, right, blame everyone else. Meanwhile the lies just go on and on. Did you hear the one about how the Democrats have financed the caravan from Honduras? His screeching has long since become unendurable.
MISTER FISH- I wasn’t a frequent customer of Mr Fish. The owner was so rude I’d get my friends to go in so I wouldn’t have to. He survived a long time considering how obnoxious he was. The last couple of years he was less offensive but his reputation was well-established. It would be nice if someone else bought it but I’ve gotten used to buying my fish at WINCO, where I run into the local restaurateurs buying theirs. And there’s always someone selling tuna on the docks. We’ll survive.
CLOSINGS IN EUREKA- But the big picture is awful. In the past year or so we’ve lost Bien Padre, Roy’s Club, the motorcycle café, Bless My Soul, and I’m sure you can think of others. Can cannabis replace them? Not really. I even miss the old Marie Callender’s . Christmas is coming and I used to love their quiche as an easy lunch for entertaining.
AVENATTI FIRM IN RENT DISPUTE- of course in any case involving lawyers, it’s escalated to multi -million dollar claims. Read the LA Times account HERE.
GIVE yourself plenty of time to mark your ballot- it’s HUGE this time. I do mine curled up in front of the TV. I really wonder who the folks are who still trudge down to the polling place. And why.
I always vote on Election Day and at my polling place, which has not changed since 1994. This gives me a chance to visit with the same poll workers that have been there for several years. There is something about going into the voting booth that allows one to honor the concept of “one person, one vote” established by the Founding Fathers in 1789. Plus you get an “:I voted” sticker to wear for the day.
I used to vote at Cutten School for the same reason, and I commend the poll workers, but I really like marking my ballot at home. When I lived on Potrero Hili I used to meet some interesting neighbors at the polls.
