Our Day Will Come …

Dateline: Palo Alto, CA (9:47 am PDT) — Coffee this morning with colleagues .. while discussing & exchanging our personal family matters, then on to world affairs and domestic politics this came wafting through .. Nostalgic as that moment was, the surreal message was true ..



Dateline: Barstow, CA (7:47 am PDT) — Well, it’s National Pizza Month & the official celebration of a wonderful dish, revered, enjoyed and possibly worshiped by many. Having known many pizzerias, along with relatives who have & have had owned them it is a wonderful, and tasty tribute.

According to historians, pizza goes back to the 8th century A.D. in Italy, and like Chinese restaurants there probably isn’t a city in America that has at least one. Yet, today it’s still a favorite epicurean delight enjoyed all over the world & in countless variants & tastes .. some quite hideously:

Happy to report & recall .. he lived.

Even on Twitter and in the context of politics “pizza” can raise controversy:

At any rate, pizza is just pizza .. Happy Pizza Month !

What is now occurring is a slough of kooky conspiracy theorizing coming from the #FakeNews pro-Trump news outlets. This particular thread of exchange was interesting to say the least …

… thus nothing was gleaned, but a probability ..



Dateline: Irvine, CA (6:45 am PDT) — Yesterday NBC news posted an article titled: “Tillerson’s Fury at Trump Required an Intervention From Pence” and within it cited Secretary of State Tillerson calling, or referring to Donald J. Trump as a “moron.”


Much has already been said about this account which occurred at the Whitehouse back in July, however what hasn’t been overtly stated is that Tillerson also employed an expletive to underscore the ferocity of his feelings for Trump in that the precise harangue was that he was a “fucking moron” …” to that effect.  And with Trump’s desire to have sex with married women, perhaps the Secretary of State wasn’t too far of the mark in that characterization.

Albeit, Colbert put it like very few can encapsulate …
