Re: Mississippi US Senate [remainder of Cochran's term]

Thanks, Sugar M. That sounds like an excellent information program to GOTV. I hope that today volunteers are knocking on many doors. This election really matters.

Re: Mississippi US Senate [remainder of Cochran's term]

Espy is asking for money with hours to go before the polls open in Mississippi. I cannot inagine that new or more ads will make much difference now. GOTV efforts should have priority; ads might help there.

I think Pelosi is least effective when she is publicly representing the Democratic Party. Maybe she can find people who can do that more effectively.

The question is not whether Bill and Hillary Clinton have the right to go on a speaking tour for which they charge as much as the market will bear. The question is whether this is good for the Democratic Party.

Re: Online Grocery Shopping

I use Peapod, which has ties to Stop and Shop and Giant groceries. I have had good luck with the produce. I think that mostly depends upon the produce manager. It may save me money if it eliminates most impulse buys. The fee is usually $6.95 plus a tip.

I also had an easy recovery from cataract surgeries. They greatly improved my vision, including perception of colors.

Do have your ophthalmologist check for retinal detachments. A laser shot can fix them.

Re: Who's going to be the NEXT one under the bus?

i seriously dislike the First Lady's interference in White House staffing. She has no competence to take such actions. If WH staff now must sneak quietly around her, a bad morale problem just got worse. Trump has the ability but not the strength to fix this.

Re: The Blue Wave

Several analysts, including a recent Slate writer, are arguing that the Democrats did indeed have a significant Blue Wave in 2018. In fact, the base of support for the Republican Party has shifted from the suburbs to rural areas. I agree with these analysts. Good job!
