The Candidacy as Greek Tragedy
Author: BobR    Date: 08/31/2016 13:11:26

Since the time of Greek Tragedy, we have been warned of the dangers of hubris. It's a simmering stew of pride, narcissism, and stubbornness that causes the hubristic to crash headlong into dire fates, ignoring the warnings along the way, assuming ones self to be immune to the consequences. There's a saying "Pride goeth before a fall", which fits into this same description. It also seems to be befitting of Candidate tRump.

As Citizen tRump, he was able to do all sorts of "business" without attracting a lot of attention. Sure, he'd splash his name all over everything like a dog marking his territory, but after a while people just shook their heads and chalked it up to "Trump being Trump". He was a ridiculous figure, one who bragged about his business acumen, while privately filing bankruptcies and quietly walking away from his many failures with whatever shekels he could stash in his sack.

Good Morning.

I've got a couple of things from Afghanistan last week. You surely heard that another US soldier has been killed. When the story broke, there were few details, but now he has a name. Which we'll pause to remember, as the news instantly disappeared from the headlines a day later.

Saturday Open

It's the end of the summer already.

Soccer camp started this week, and Waltham is back to school next Wednesday.

And on we go into the best part of the year.

Good Morning.

You'll want to keep your eye on the Korean peninsula for the next few days. It's time for those annual military exercises with our ally South Korea, and the North is none too pleased. The bloviating dictator has promised to turn the South into "a heap of ashes" if there is the slightest provocation during the event.

Disney as Utopia
Author: TriSec    Date: 08/20/2016 12:45:40

Good Morning.

It was a week ago we were starting our last day at the Magic Kingdom. After all the buildup, hard to believe it's receding almost as quickly. But nevertheless - time moves on relentlessly.

The vast Disney complex in Central Florida is right next to a major population center, yet is completely disconnected from it. Once you're under that welcome arch, it's like being in a different world.
