Re: Colorado Pretend Judge Bruce Doucette + Pretend Grand Jury LARPers Stephen Nalty, Steven Byfield, et al.

No worries :-)

It gave me a good opportunity to read The Verge article and get more familiar with the story.

It's not listed on my local NPR station schedule for today, but hopefully soon.

Re: Aging - it's not for fraidy cats

We got home this afternoon after hubby's aortic valve replacement by TAVR yesterday. It went textbook perfect, but he still stayed overnight and I don't know why anyone said he might go home the same day. The question after surgery was whether he would spend the night in ICU or the cardiac unit. He...

Re: Trump's dementia accelerating?

Trump clearly just sees water as something that comes out of the tap in his penthouse suite. How it gets there is not something he thinks or cares about. He's just like the average guy who doesn't know (or care) where the meat for his burger comes from. It's grown on trees, no? He's the president o...

That’s an unreasonable metric.

Yep. Just had a stage II growth removed from my sigmoid colon (actually, a 30cm section of the colon was removed, along with the "fungating mass" found during the colonoscopy).
