Jimmy Carter embodies all the virtues absent in Our Fake President. But you knew that. Read the WAPO’s summary HERE.
ANNALS OF JUNK TV- Have I mentioned that the greatest quiz show is back!!?? CASH CAB is now available on the Discovery Channel Friday at 7pm (Ch 31 on Suddenlink) with the one and only Ben Bailey. They were threatening to replace him but who could replace Ben Bailey?? Good show, worth taping although I was looking forward to the promised CASH CAB CHICAGO which doesn’t seem to be happening, so we’ll keep on riding the Cash Cab up and down the streets of Manhattan. Meanwhile, 90 DAY FIANCÉE has limped to an anarchic muddle. The LEARNING CHANNEL is the most poorly produced channel I have seen. We STILL don’t know what happened to Mohammed and Danielle (or as I have dubbed them, the clueless Mohammed and the hideous Danielle ). Last we saw of them, Mohammed was working as an Uber driver in parts unknown and Danielle was devoting her life to getting him deported. The new bunch they brought on in the last couple of weeks are even more clueless.
CHINA is celebrating its ten year anniversary of their high speed rail system while California’s is still struggling, mired in parochial concerns. They’ll even have HSR in FLORIDA soon, from Tampa to Orlando to start out with.
PUPPY PORN- speaking of junk TV, I have become an eager consumer of what I call Puppy Porn. The Animal Channel “Too Cute” is unfortunately addictive, They run it early in the morning so it won’t affect normal people, but I tape it. They usually address three different breeds of puppies or kittens. I’m actually finding this useful since I’m planning to adopt another dog when LouLou passes. (She’s 20 years old and will probably not last beyond Christmas, according to the vet.) I would NEVER pay money for a so-called pedigreed dog, but if you’re familiar with the breeds I can see where it would save a lot of time at the shelter. “I’d like a cairn terrier type”. The ACTUAL cutest dogs they’ve shown turned out to be an exotic breed called Cotons de Tulear, little white dogs with CUTE faces but apparently a hassle to groom. AND they run about three large.
SPEAKING OF DOGS- TRUMP HATES DOGS. He doesn’t just use the term to put down those he’s fighting with, he actually has a history of being anti-dog. His first wife Ivanka had a poodle which he tolerated but nothing since. Barron is growing up without a dog. Sad! I can see why he hates them- they are morally superior to him.

In Salon, David Cay Johnston, Pulitzer prize-winning reporter, reveals what Trump is so afraid of. He’s in hock to the Russians! As if you didn’t know that. Remember what Putin looked like at the news conference ending their meeting. HE was bouncy and chipper, while Trump looked like he’d been hit by a truck.

This week we were treated to walkback after walkback while Trump’s staff tried to dig him out from his gaffes. Remember when they used to call Reagan “The Great Communicator”?
