Tuesday morning, July 25

1) As someone whose speaking voice was, in early life, often mocked and compared to Snagglepuss, I sympathize with J**** K******. That doesn't mean I don't think he colluded with the Russians, but I don't think he needs to be raked over the coals because of the way he talks.

2) I, for one, don't really mind this little cold snap we're having right now. Thinking people have already turned off their air conditioners to save energy . . . and money.

3) Yesterday I sent this article to some friends. In subsequent discussion I referred to Dr. Dre, who was a childhood idol of the subject. One friend replied. "Let me me adjust for a moment to you [emphasis mine] referring to Dr. Dre."
