How do you vote?

Good Morning.

Thirty-two Novembers ago, I was getting ready to cast my very first Presidential Ballot. It was 1984; perhaps you remember the times. At that precocious political age, I was dead-set against the incumbent, so I cast my ballot for a gentleman from Minnesota. We all know how well that went. Further down the ticket in this Commonwealth were a couple of names that you probably have heard of. Governor Michael Dukakis and his running mate, an unknown John Kerry. I would presume Paul Tsongas was on that ballot, too. (I don't live in his district.)

After this week's debate and last night's Al Smith dinner, where someone took it way too seriously, it feels like we need a palate cleanser.

Good Morning.

Seems like there has been a lot going on in Iraq of late - almost feels like the old days around here. So we shall start in that desert kingdom today. By now you've certainly heard about the Kurd-led offensive in Mosul. It's being sold as Iraqi-led in the US media, but our friends at the BBC have categorized the troops as 80% Peshmerga, or Kurds...which doesn't make Turkey too happy.

That's what Trump called us after he learned of the NC GOP firebombing. I won't link his tweet here.

Good Morning.

It's been a week now since our encampment in the city of Boston. Last weekend was the only weekend all year where it was cold and rainy, so naturally we had a scouting event.

Today is clear and sunny, and tomorrow is expected to be near 70, and since there was a freeze last night, Monday and Tuesday will be true "Indian Summer" back around 80, if the forecast holds.

We can agree with that, right?

If we agree, read on. If you don't agree, stop reading.

The RMS Titanic was a tremendous ship - tremendous... It was made to be unsinkable - only loser ships sink, everybody says that. It set sail April 10, 1912 with the very best people on board, believe me, believe me...

Four days later, though, it hit an iceberg. The iceberg could have been named "Hillary", or "Pussy", or any other name - we'll never know. Nonetheless - the "unsinkable" Titanic went down, supposedly with the band playing, taking the upper crust of society with it.

It seems the tRump campaign has been taking on a lot of water lately. Some of the breaches came from out of the blue, like the "grab 'em by the pussy" tape. A lot, though, seem to be self-inflicted. He has declared that "the shackles are off", and is waging a battle with the party that has provided him the opportunity to run for president (*cough*BernieSanders*cough*). When he should be fighting the Democratic candidate, and trying to garner support, he's doing battle with House Speaker Paul Ryan.
