Not alot of surprises under the fedora today
I’m typing this on Monday at my favorite lunch place that had CNN on one of their TV with no sound. They as you might guess are talking about the two shooters in Dayton and El Paso.
Whenever they mention the El Paso shooter the bar at the bottom speaks about his beliefs and reference Trump, however whenever they reference the Dayton shooter, a fan of Sanders and Warren & antifa they don’t.
On another TV they have international women’s volleyball. That might not have been a surprise except that instead of beach volleyball where the women are wearing nearly nothing it’s snow volleyball where the women are completely cover because, well it’s snow volleyball.
Yet the bar has it on.
Oddly enough at this bar none of the TVs are on channel’s talking about Tom Brady’s new contract giving the Pats the option to keep him through 2021, perhaps it’s because everyone was speculating about why Brady wasn’t signed and if the Patriots were finally moving on etc. I strongly suspect that the reason why it took so long for deal that it helped overshadow the 1st Patriots season post “happyending gate” but in the end the Patriots in general and their owner in particular decided it was a bad idea to send the NFL’s biggest cash cow to the glue factory
No surprise there.
Democrat candidates have “pounced” on this weekends shootings in the hopes of generating or sustaining buzz for their campaigns the same way I pounce on frozen Kentucky Derby pie when it’s in sight.
It will be no surprise to see the next debate featuring perhaps multiple questions to candidate linking the El Paso shooter (democrat though he is) to President Trump and candidate after candidate blaming the president for the shooters actions.
However it will be a great surprise if at that same debate they note the political beliefs of the Dayton shooter and ask either Senators Sanders or Warren who he expressed support for if they bear any responsibility for that shooter’s acts.
Now That would be a surprise
Finally for the last several months there have been a bunch of rabbits in the neighborhood. I think they’re been living under our low back deck and over that time a day rarely went by that I didn’t either leave for work or come back from work without seeing a rabbit sitting in the back yard waiting to see what direction I would go in.
Two days ago I saw a cat in the neighborhood for the 1st time in at least a year walking down the street by my driveway.
I haven’t seen a rabbit since.
no surprise there.
