Oh my.

Michigan misses the field goal attempt in OT.

Rutgers with the ball and a chance to win.
Ooof. Rutgers misses the FG and it’s on to a second OT.
And a third OT.

Six years ago today, a 12-year old boy was standing alone in a park.

Police pulled up and opened fire before their car had even stopped moving.

A child was shot and killed in literally two seconds.

The two officers were responding to a dispatcher’s call about a “person with a gun.”

The original caller had said the person was “possibly a juvenile” and the gun was “probably fake”; the dispatcher didn’t pass that along.

Instead, the police just pulled up and opened fire.

The 12-year old boy was indeed a juvenile and the gun was indeed “fake”.

It was a toy and it was tucked into his waistband.

He wasn’t holding it or brandishing it. He was just a kid with a toy gun tucked into his belt.

So, somehow, I am now the father of a teenager.

The little boy who would wake up early, climb out of bed and pitter-patter across the hardwood to climb under the covers with me... he’s a teenager now.

The 5 lb 13 ounce peanut who arrived five weeks early and almost didn’t survive his first night...

The tiny little one who I would sing to sleep on my shoulder...

A teenager.

When kids are little, people say “Don’t worry, it gets better.”

I never needed it to get better.

I loved when he was just a tiny bundle swaddled and asleep in my lap as I stayed up all night watching movies as his mom slept.

I loved the 2s, 3s and 4s. I have loved it all.

America’s Biggest Loser, the defeated Donald J. Trump, speaking live at the White House.

Turned it on to hear him lying about how he is somehow responsible for development of a vaccine not in any way aided by his administration.
Trump’s hair has already faded to a lifeless color reminiscent of Paul Manafort’s after his check-in to Club Fed.

His face, as always, looks like a pumpkin pie with two pieces of uncooked bologna for eyes.
Babyfingers now bragging about having procured a stockpile of Remdesivir - which recently showed no clinical benefit in a large scale study.

Sure, it’s an expensive placebo but, hey, we’ve got truckloads.

This fuckopotamus is truly a snake oil salesman.

My understanding is that Trump basically “lent” money to his Scottish golf courses for “improvements” and then upped the claimed value of the courses to offset the debt without making any readily apparent significant improvements.

This would seem to raise the question of whether there ever actually was a loan (or were these instead tax dodges of some kind).

And if there was a loan, was that money spent on improvements or laundered back to Trump somehow.

There is something very amiss in the numbers though.

The Scottish golf courses are huge sinks. They lose a ton of money. The Aberdeen property stood no chance of ever being sustainably profitable (IMHO).

Yet, Trump has made no moves to plug what appear to be gaping losses.

When Trump was first elected, it was a bit eerie how precisely I could map out his behaviors in advance.

Folks who have followed me for a long time can probably attest to that.

A lot of people who have seen a narcissist up close could do the same. They’re just predictable.

They are so programmed, they’re incapable of surprise.

They are hardwired to make all decisions based on two driving motivations.

What best helps them:

- avoid being seen as shameful, contemptible, unworthy of respect

- earn admiration, esteem; be seen as special

Those twin drivers make all their decisions simple calculations. They can’t weigh complexity or trade offs.

They can’t long-term plan... because even if they did, they’d still compulsively for the thing best for those two needs right now.

The best thing us deep-blue-staters can do to help the Georgia runoffs is give them all the money and none of the advice.

Stacey Abrams, et al, know what they’re doing.
To folks bringing up phone-banking, etc, awesome... just go through an org on the ground in GA (or one that is coordinating/being directed by an org in GA).

An uncoordinated hurricane of out-of-state messages would hurt rather than help.
