I didn’t know ANY of this. From Sacramento Business News, read it HERE.
Well, that didn’t take long.. From the WAPO right HERE.
From the WAPO– SPOTTED FRIDAY NIGHT: Members of the Washington Nationals — including GM Mike Rizzo, Max Scherzer, Stephen Strasburg, Aníbal Sánchez, Ryan Zimmerman, Daniel Hudson and Sean Doolittle — celebrating their World Series win at Cafe Milano. … Let’s hear it for the Nationals!
From POLITICO, quoting President BoneSpurs:
“ISIS was all over the place…It was me…who captured them … I’m the one who did the capturing. I’m the one who knows more about it than you people or the fake pundits.” He also railed against “the phony emoluments clause”, a part of the US constitution. You really wan this man to be President?
Again from the WAPO: Max Boot says Republicans “shouldn’t worry what Trump will think of them. They should worry what their grandchildren will think of them.” (WaPo)
SPOTTED: Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan in a booth at Sushi Taro on Wednesday night. .Looks pretty damn expensive.. On the other hand, we can look forward to more reasonably priced meals as Shake Shack continues its march through San Francisco to world domination. Check them out HERE.
THE KATIE HILL MESS: WHY WHY WHY does anyone allow nude pix of themselves to be taken ? WHY? She’s obviously not intelligent enough to serve in Congress. Sorry.
Speaking of the Zuckerbergs, if you pay even a little attention you’ve noticed that every time you turn around someone else is suing Facebook. WHY support a company that makes its living off your commerce but shows NO social conscience? GET OFF FACEBOOK! You can make our own mailing lists! It’s easy!
The Foodies blog is hinting that Marcelli’s Restaurant is closing soon. I hope it’s not true. I’ve never eaten at the restaurant but I enjoy buying their meat ravioli at Murphy’s and it make a quick easy dinner. I can’t believe how many restaurants are closing supposedly because they can’t find staff. Are they willing to pay enough? Hmnnnn.
Don’t know about you but that blackout took a lot out of me in terms of stress. Have a normal week!
From the New Yorker: keep this one handy. and read it HERE.

For those of you who have been wondering “Whatever Happened to Rudy Giuliani”, there’s no mystery. He’s 73 and has been a heavy drinker for the last 50 years. This is what happens. Sad!
|And I just came up with another great Hallowe’en costume idea: LEV and IGOR, Giuliani’s Russian pals.
Yes, every week in the Trump-era is crazy and unpredictable. But this week in particular felt even more over the top than usual. As it comes to an end, it seemed worth revisiting some of the headlines from the past five days…
— Rudy Giuliani pushed the Trump administration to grant a visa to a Ukrainian official promising dirt on Democrats…
— Mick Mulvaney admitted a quid pro quo, before attempting to walk it back…
— Rick Perry announced his resignation…
— Elijah Cummings passed away at 68…
— Gordon Sondland testified that Trump directed diplomats to work with Giuliani on Ukraine…
— The White House announced the 2020 G7 Summit will take place at Trump’s resort in Doral, Florida…
— Mark Zuckerberg delivered a major speech on free expression…
— Nancy Pelosi and other top Democrats walked out of a meeting with Trump. Pelosi accused Trump of a “meltdown” and a photo from the meeting showing her standing up to Trump went viral…

From the WAPO; an excellent summary of his “great and unmatched wisdom.” Yes, he really said that. Read it HERE.
