Movie Review: The Wonder.

Pugh portrays the quintessential, mid-1800s Nightingale nurse. Kind, generous, helpful. Trying to sort out holy feats from hard realities. She fights the council, archaic beliefs and unconcerned parents, without hysteria but quite willfully. As the quest for saving Anna becomes more taxing and urgent, Pugh wears that stress on her face like a martyr. 

The perfect ‘Republican’ presidential ticket.

That’s my Thanksgiving wish, as well as my Thanksgiving advice. My two annual Turkey Day winners need to put their egos aside and do what’s best for America. Trump/DeSantis is the GOP dream team.

That’s not just a Thanksgiving wish. It’s one heck of a Christmas gift for Republicans.

In Quest To Get Donald Trump, Secrecy Strikes Again.

It has happened before with Trump. Not too many years ago, he faced accusations — often dramatic accusations, like the notion that he was a Kremlin asset — on the basis of unseen evidence that the talking heads said was reliable but that no one in the public could evaluate. Now, it’s happening again.

Politics: The Choice.

Can we run the risk of electing a known liar or of lies being told when circumstances might impact our safety and security?  The candidate who willingly lies to you once is telling you that he/she will lie again, and we know to believe a person who tells us who they are the first time.

The Time For Florida Governor Ron DeSantis Is Now.

DeSantis is a winning incumbent, exceedingly popular with Trump’s base, and has a chance to save the GOP – and the country – from four more years of hell by knocking off Trump first, then any Democrat they choose to run.

President Joe Biden’s deadly inaction on the border crisis.

Funny, I don’t hear Joe Biden bragging about that designation. Not that he should. It is shameful and dangerous and getting worse. At this point, Biden’s isn’t doing anything about it – but, oh yes, he is doing something related. His office of Refugee Resettlement just ordered that illegal-immigrant children in federal custody must be allowed access to abortions – including being moved to states that are “abortion friendly.”

The Most Worshipful Michelle Obama Review Ever?

When Barack Obama’s memoir, “A Promised Land,” came out right after the 2020 election, their New York Times book review also was destined to become a sales pitch. The publisher happily and repeatedly regurgitated author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie: “Barack Obama is as fine a writer as they come … (A Promised Land) is nearly always pleasurable to read, sentence by sentence, the prose gorgeous in places, the detail granular and vivid.”

California Politics; Now What for L.A.’s New Mayor?

The next L.A. mayor will have to hit the ground running. That requires political smarts, connections, ability, and the expertise, to grapple effectively with the colossal challenges facing the city. It is not a task or job for on-the-job training.

GOP Better Get Good at What Democrats Do, and Quick.

In fact, if Republicans get good at ballot harvesting and pressuring people to vote early, by mail, etc., you might see Democrats call for ending those things because of it. Democrats oppose anything Republicans do well, even if Democrats used to do them well too.

What to Look Out For on Hotel Websites.

Hotels websites are a great way to learn about the hotel, its amenities, and what to expect when you arrive. However, not all websites are as good as they could be. Some hotels have more comprehensive websites with information about the surrounding area and local attractions. Other websites are more focused on advertising rates and special offers.
