La La Land

Sat, 18 Feb 2017 20:37:29 +0000

Anyone seen this movie? It’s up for a gazillion Oscars, and it’s a musical (of all things). So last night I went to see it. I liked it more than I’d expected to. One of the more astounding things about the film is that its director/writer and composer are both just barely over thirty, and […]

Erythro­melalgia: hotfoot [Part I]

Sat, 18 Feb 2017 20:25:45 +0000

Here’s an article about a woman whose complaint was feet that were hot and red: Melissa Curley Bogner was baffled: Why did her feet feel suddenly hot — in January? The article goes on to describe her doctors’ befuddlement, their blind-alley treatments for infections and the like, before the patient herself Googled her symptoms and […]

Divorcing over Trump

Sat, 18 Feb 2017 20:17:17 +0000

Yes, it happens: “It totally undid me that he could vote for Trump,” said McCormick, 73, who had not thought of leaving the conservative Republican before but felt “betrayed” by his support for Trump. “I felt like I had been fooling myself,” she said. “It opened up areas between us I had not faced before. […]

The courts rule on Trump’s intent and the “Muslim ban”

Sat, 18 Feb 2017 20:08:58 +0000

Those who say that of course Trump’s EO on immigration was meant to be a ban on Muslims are relying on Trump’s long-ago campaign statements as well as a more recent remark of his and some recent comments by advisor Rudy Giuliani. As an example of this type of reasoning, see this article by law […]

Who is Chris Cillizza fooling?

Fri, 17 Feb 2017 19:47:41 +0000

[NOTE: I wrote the draft of this post before yesterday’s press conference, in which Trump certainly did call on hostile press representatives from liberal news outlets. So Cillizza’s very specific complaint (that Trump only called on friendly sources) no longer applies. But the more general points made in this piece still do, so I’m posting […]

A cop-killing averted

Fri, 17 Feb 2017 19:27:46 +0000

Here’s how the situation began: [Officer] Bardes and a Florida Highway Patrol trooper were at the scene of a car crash when Strother’s Toyota Camry swerved and drove along the left shoulder at what seemed to be at least 100 miles per hour, nearly striking the officers, a witness told the News-Press. Believing the near-crash […]

Trump’s presser: beauty in the eye of the beholder

Fri, 17 Feb 2017 18:55:13 +0000

I don’t usually listen to these things (I’m not an auditory person, as I’ve said before). However, late last night I watched most of Trump’s presser, and I must say it was entertaining. But Trump has often been entertaining. It is one of his most salient characteristics. In this case he was entertaining at the […]

Tear down those walls!

Fri, 17 Feb 2017 18:27:24 +0000

Mull this one over: Other New York City elected officials used the [deportation] raids to make a broader point. “From Palestine to Mexico, all the walls have got to go!” shouted New York City Council members Rosie Mendez and Margaret Chin at a rally in Tompkins Square Park. City councilmember Carlos Menchaca posted on Facebook […]

I will not always be commenting on the Trump story du jour

Thu, 16 Feb 2017 20:33:03 +0000

Not every single day, anyway. There is a repetitive pattern to it that has become extremely boring. “Boring” doesn’t mean “unimportant.” It’s important, and I will continue to cover these events and react to them and analyze them. But I will not hop to deal with every single one. I will not play continual whack-a-mole, […]

Coming out as a gay conservative

Thu, 16 Feb 2017 20:13:22 +0000

Since I’m always interested in political changers, I want to draw your attention to this brave soul. Chadwick Moore is a gay man of 33 who lives in Brooklyn, a “lifelong” liberal (I guess 33 years seems long when you’re 33) who recently wrote a piece for Out magazine on Milo Yiannopoulos. The article was […]
