WH signs off on Biden receiving Presidential Daily Brief, and Lame duck pardons real turkey


Dow hits 30,000 first time ever, trump tries to take credit.

The "first Thanksgiving"--ancient wrongs

I can never get over that I have only met abt 3-4 Native Americans in my entire nearly 40 years in USA.  One was an artist, one was a delegate in Boulder and one was author Sherman Alexie at a book reading.

In my 13 years at Penn, I only met 2 African-Americans.

That says it all.

GSA Emily signs ascertainment--at last--but she shld pay for her criminal action--



Free audio and print books online--

If you click on one, like this audio book of Geronimo's story, Youtube will direct you to a whole line of masterpieces on the R.

Try it, titles I have heard include John Wyndham, The Triffids, Chrysalids, HG Wells, War of Worlds, The Egg, etc.  To Kill a Mocking Bird.

You can also read masterpieces like The Jungle or Daniel Dafoe's Plague Diary online at Gutenberg Project.

Book are getting hard to buy, and now my eyes are going.

You can also read a print book you buy and listen to an audio book at the same time, so you get the plot really clear.

When I had cable TV, I cld watch say North and South, or Lonesome Dove, while also reading the books, say in same week.

Of course this post is meant for ppl who read, or wish to read, or know reading is good.

Not for those who say--"Too stressful" "Doer not reader," etc etc.

You don't know what you are missing, by not reading.

Happy Thanksgiving, and be thankful for yr brain, yr ears and yr eyesight.

As Covid-19 infections and hospitalizations soared across the US, experts warned higher death tolls would soon follow.
On Wednesday, there were at least 1,893 American deaths from the virus, according to Johns Hopkins University -- the highest daily death toll the country has seen since early May.
Already, more than 241,700 people have died. And with the virus running unabated within US communities, that number will likely only keep climbing.

Another more than 110,000 Americans are projected to lose their lives in just the next two months, according to the University of Washington's Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation.

NBC Nightly News Analysis--congratulations from world leaders pour in--

Joe Biden is President Elect, Kamala Harris is first woman and first African American VP--wow

Biden won 4 m more popular votes than trump.

The commentators are already talking in past tense of trump.

Biden also won 273 of 274 electoral votes.  Trump was stuck at 213.

Twitter will probably shut down Trump's acct, through which he hourly and daily disseminated LIES and fomented violence for 4 whole years.

I'm going to eat the beef curry I made last night with rice.

But we can't let down our guard.  People are celebrating in streets wearing masks but not socially distancing.

The nightmare is over.




trump dumps respected woman who oversees nuclear weapons and 2 others.

In order to prevent one person from having a temper tantrum—which he’s going to have either way—we’re continuing to put thousands of people at risk. Not acceptable.
Lukashenka is an extreme gynephobe as much as Trump. His fear and hatred of women is blatant. His goons are arresting women for holding flowers or autumn leaves. They ransacked the home of 73-year-old Nina Baginskaya. President Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya was driven out of Belarus.
