Slow News Day
Author: BobR    Date: 06/02/2021 13:35:01

Sorry for the lame blog today - I had a work meeting this morning at 9:00, and wasn't inspired last night. The news bits that are floating around don't provide much grist (like the Orange Menace claiming he'll be reinstated as president).

There is also the very big story about this being the 100th anniversary of the assault on Tulsa's Greenwood neighborhood. I've been watching some of the TV specials and documentaries, and have learned things about it I didn't know before. This is much too big of a gross moment in our country's history for me to do it justice in this little blog.

Cicadas? Been there, done that.

There's the non-talking filibuster rule which is once again allowing a tyranny of the minority.

Also - Netanyahu may finally be pushed out in Israel. Hopefully, that brings a change for the better with regard to how the Palestinians are treated.

Anyway - back to work for me

Good morning, bloggers!!

I hope that Netanyahu is pushed out of power. The coalition may be slow to deal with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict but the likely government may be transitional. My hope is that better leadership will emerge in the region. (Hamas is a problem and elections in the West Bank are past due.)

I am on vacation but doing a lot of housework. I did get a new letter of reference from an assistant principal and I hope that I can line up a better job for the new school year.

Mornin' all!

More good news - the NM-1 special election yesterday to replace Deb Haaland was won by Melanie Stansbury. And it looks like Nina Turner is gonna replace Marcia Fudge too.

I was still wondering if MySpace had more traffic.
