Random thoughts Friday, Volume XLVII

  • The White House physicians who kept secret Donald Trump’s positive coronavirus test on September 26th need to answer questions about how they learned Trump violated quarantine and infected scores of people for days, and who they told about Trump’s health.  The minions in the Trump White House not only endangered hundreds of people over days, but nearly cost the life of the (granted, very much disliked) President of the United States.
  • I like the fact that a number of Trump’s cronies are pleading the Fifth.  It shows that, even in retrospect, they themselves can see their actions were criminal.  
  • The children of anti-vaxxers must start refusing to eat their vegetables at dinner, claiming “body sovereignty” and the illegality of parents forcing children to put something in their bodies the kids don’t want.  That is, if they actually get served vegetables during dinner, and not just something ordered by yelling into a clown’s mouth.
  • If Kevin McCarthy wants to calm the disarray in the House GOP caucus, he should just post dicta on Twitter, because that’s the only thing his freshman class of representatives thinks matters.

  • The arguments made to maintain Roe this week at SCOTUS were compelling on both Constitutional and anecdotal grounds.  Any limitation on the legal access to reproductive care will have an immediate impact on the lives of tens of thousands of women, even if Roe is codified by Congress later.  Women should not lose their rights while objections and lawsuits get heard in courts for the next decade. 
  • How many of us have spouses who made appearances (non-speaking category) on both Tucker Carlson AND Ari Melber this week?  Wha–… only me?  (Congrats, Mrs. Jack!)
  • So Ron DeSantis wants his own personal army of volunteers, huh?  Do they make up-armored golf carts for the Florida force?
  • A member of New Zealand’s parliament, nine months pregnant, rode her bicycle to the hospital after starting contractions and gave birth an hour after arriving.  And that was after the morning’s rugby match.
  • Me, on the other hand… I caught a cold and now, being a male, I think I’m going to die a slow, wheezy, miserable death. And I didn’t get a cold through all of 2020, so Thanks, Biden!  
  • We don’t have a single cold medicine in the house that didn’t expire after 2019, but I’m risking it.  
  • My favorite Hanukkah movie:  The Hebrew Hammer.  It’s hilarious, tasteless and would never be made today.  
  • Strange what you remember from childhood.  I remember a “Mad Magazine” parody of “We Three Kings” called “We Three Drunks”:  We three drunks from Omaha are / spending Christmas Eve in a car / Driving Drinking Smashing Singing / on to yonder bar.  For the record, I don’t know the lyrics of the original Christmas carol.  
  • Something I learned this week:  one of the people aboard a September SpaceX flight, Hayley Arceneaux, was the first person with a prosthesis to fly into space.  She has a prosthetic leg.
  • Favorite pop Christmas songs (not carols and which thankfully are not overplayed so you don’t immediately switch off the radio):  Don’t Shoot Me, Santa by The Killers; Fairytale of New York by The Pogues with Kristy MacColl; and Little Saint Nick by the Beach Boys.  Still the most impactful (but overplayed):  Do They Know It’s Christmas?  
  • The Dalai Lama has more than 19 million followers on Twitter.  Appropriately, he follows no one.
