A news report this morning suggests Elton John might be the opening concert at the newly remodeled Carrier Dome at Syracuse University.
There was another first. October 22, 1980. The Carrier Dome brand new. Frank Sinatra!
I had purchased a box at the new Carrier Dome. It was perfect for the concert. It was just off to the side of the stage.
The box seated 16. I invited my closet friends.
It was a night!
Last night an embarrassment for the U.S. There was a procedural vote to determine whether a debate should take place re the proposed election bill. The Republicans filibustered. The vote was negative. The Republicans who generally permit nothing were consistent.
Continued results as last night indicate clearly the U.S. is sliding into authoritarianism. I fear within 10 years a despot will be running this country.
Unless Democrats stop being nice and start KICKING ASS. In every respect. Beginning with an end to the filibuster.
Congratulation to Joe Manchin for the bipartisanship reflected last night in the election vote.
Manchin belongs in the hills of West Virginia. He is better suited to making moonshine than deciding what is good or bad for the American people.
That is the blog for today. Another test. I have to be at the hospital at 7:30 for a nuclear stress test.
Enjoy your day!
