What goes around comes around.
Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema will get their just due. It is only a question of when.
It is not because they played hardball. Rather, it is because they did not know how to say yes when asked to cooperate, for a favor, etc. Many visited them over the past few weeks asking for help. Reasons given why. Positive responses appear to have been none.
Those asking were primarily contemporaries. Other elected officials. Including President Biden.
Manchin especially refused to bend.
Everyone needs a favor now and then. Special help. Manchin and Sinema will approach those they have recently turned down. Memories are long lived. They will receive the same congenial response they gave to those who asked for their help. Sorry…..I just can’t do it.
A man I have admired for many years is New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof. He started with the Times when 25. Now 37 years later at 62, he is leaving.
Hard to believe.
He is leaving to run as the Democratic candidate for Governor of Oregon.
He feels an obligation to actually fight the battles he has commented on up to this time.
A good man. A very good man. However, I think he’s crazy. He is entering the twilight of his life/career. He is highly respected. Twice a Pulitzer Prize winner. His written words always steeped in wisdom.
He has been motivated by a desire to help. No selfish purpose involved.
In his sudden good bye column, he wrote: “We are an amazing species, and we can do better.” Such will be his goal. To do better by helping those most in need. If you have been a loyal reader of his columns over the years, you would recognize his motivation an unselfish one.
Such is the man.
Andrew Cuomo has been legally charged. With one misdemeanor. Eleven women complained. Only one’s complaint is being pursued apparently.
The woman claims breast fondling.
The charge carries a maximum sentence of one year. The case is venued in Albany City Court.
The case could be one involving she said, he said. Perhaps more. Time will tell.
Facebook announced it is changing its name to META. No more Facebook.
How this will help them re the company’s present problems, I don’t know.
Several other social media companies are doing the same.
Men! Beware or aware. I am not sure. My message is that cosmetic companies have decided to go after men. A multibillion dollar target from the perspective of producers. Make up “is the final frontier of men’s grooming.”
In 2019, the market was $47 billion. By 2027, it is expected to be $78 billion.
Male grooming is big in Asia. Especially Japan. Japan is 65 percent of the world’s business. At the present time, the U.S. a mere 5 percent.
Enjoy your day!
