About Me

65 years old. Lifelong democrat. Saw JFK in New Haven CT on election eve 1960. I was all of 5 years old. Cast my first vote for Jimmy Carter. Stayed up all night at the English Speaking Union I London to watch the returns. We celebrated the results about 9 AM London time. I cried the morning I learned Bobby Kennedy had been shot. I don't think I ever quite recovered, although President Obama's election helped a lot. These days I'm a moderate democrat and a cultural conservative. I miss the world of good manners, fancy dress and dancing cheek to cheek. Big TCM fan.

Two more dead Russian generals!

I assume this is the result of Covid lockdowns.

Inside the Azovstal steel plant in Mariupol:

I don't have to say anything.

It appears that the new artillery is working:

There is another source for the story listed down thread.

So yesterday I'm driving north on Rte. 81 in Scranton

and I spot three overhead highway signs all in a row which proclaim: President Biden Thruway.
I was driving, otherwise I would post a picture.

This means they intend to assault Odessa.
