    • Trump/Clinton Debate Open Thread
      I used to get paid to watch these things. I don’t any more.  So… I’m going to go read a nice novel in a coffee shop.  Please feel free to talk about the debate in comments.  I will, actually, be curious to hear what people have to say, just not willing to sit thru so […]

My Favorite Things

My favorite obsession: ballet

My favorite city: Pittsburgh

My favorite composer- DeBussey

 

Ok, you have to admit that was nice.

Now, what’s going on in politics? Got any thots?

  1. I can see the building I wok in through the windows. I wish I knew where this video was shot. What a great space!

  2. Awesome video!!! Love ballet, too. Kathryn Morgan has a great set of videos on youtube. I started taking “class” again that way in Jan. after way too many years, but it’s SO fun. Highly recommend it.

    • Sounds about right. The media resembles a middle school cafeteria. They’re never going to be nice, no matter how important it is to be nice. I wouldn’t blame her if she just said screw it and walked away.

      That’s why we can’t have nice things.
      Too many Heathers.

      • Gene Lyons has been calling the corporate media operatives “Heathers” for years.

        I read the Salon article. My favorite line:

        “[The media] would be cynical about Bernie Sanders, too, if they thought he mattered, which they clearly don’t.”

    • Well, the NYDN did take their Presidential endorsement seriously. The editorial board drilled down into Bernie’s platform and asked him some real questions about his proposals (not the softball “debate” sort). Didn’t take long to figure out that BS was not well versed. (Later in response to a question Charlie Rose had related to the botched interview, Sanders referred him to his web site. Still didn’t have it down.

      Hillary received a thorough vetting, and hers went beyond Sanders because her proposals are substantive, and she is conversant in how they might be enacted. Referred to herself as a “wonk.”

    • I loved it, too. Best endorsement I’ve read so far for anyone.

    • I strongly agree with all the accolades for this excellent endorsement. It is logically and compellingly thought out and written. If only the rest of the written and broadcast media had half as much attention to actual facts and issues.

  3. Just Lovely!
    B&W brings always enchanting surrealism to life.
    DeBussey music…Tops!

  4. http://bluenationreview.com/reports-indicate-bernie-sanders-is-a-millionaire-with-three-homes/

    Jane says she lost their tax returns, and what has been released in the past is a summary, not the full forms as the Sanders have stated. Money magazine believes that BS is a millionaire who had three homes (before selling a condo). Nothing wrong with that if one “believes in charities” (BS said he doesn’t)–the Clintons have donated $18 million plus and their time to their foundation–or if one doesn’t go out-of-one’s-way to rail against millionaires and billionaires, which would be hypocritical if one were one.

  5. I don’t know all that much about classical music, but Debussy is one of my favorite composers as well, along with Rachmaninoff.
