Worlds Collide

Opening Day thought: Yankees haven't won anything since the George Castanza era. Mere coincidence or, "believe it or not, it's George"?

Chek-ing Russian Ties

"All, everything I understand, I understand only because I love." Anton Chekhov

 And then there's Tusenbach from his Three Sisters, "The time has come. A colossus is upon us, a mighty, health-giving storm. It's on its way, moving closer, and soon it will sweep our society clean of sloth, indifference, of prejudice."

A 'musing' Thought #22

Just like every day that's ever been, and every day that'll ever be, there will be more humor in this world come tonight than there ever was before. And come Saturday, well, a whole, whole lot more.

It's been very telling how open the newly electred administration has been, even two and a half months before taking over, in revealing its hand in just about everything. Like, drunk level openness. Not since Lincoln has our country so intensely anticipate what would happen once the transfer of power took place(Reagan's pre-tenure barely registers a blip in comparison). And oh what a difference...

Contrast Trump's airing, tweeting of every new potential appointment and minute to minute reactions, to that of Lincoln's virtual silence on all matters to allow the sitting president(Buchanan, a democrat) to continue to lead the nation through extremely uncertain times, and all the while, an entire nation, split apart, held its collective breath wondering if the country could even survive the winter.
