Five for May 23rd:
Weekend highlights. Drinks with friends at Urban Chestnut for Lisa’s birthday, George’s first haircut, Taste of Maplewood, MCF and SFYYR at Off Broadway, taking Jane to Toys R Us, backyard bbq with the Fairs and co.
Nick Menza. Rust in peace.
Game of Thrones. I've still never seen an episode of this show, so my life remains relatively unruined. I do feel for all of you though.
Cool stuff. Won a hundred bucks this morning, fresh bag of Sumatra, Schlafly Summer Lager season, pre-work railslides, Blues/Sharks series tied.
This is how fascism comes to America. Not with jackboots and salutes (although there have been salutes, and a whiff of violence) but with a television huckster, a phony billionaire, a textbook egomaniac “tapping into” popular resentments and insecurities, and with an entire national political party — out of ambition or blind party loyalty, or simply out of fear — falling into line behind him.
