The Trump jury is being seated faster than anticipated. Yesterday was the second day of jury selection. At the end of the day, seven jurors had been seated.

Court resumes thursday. There is no court on wednesdays.

It is possible the jury could be fully drawn by friday and opening statements made monday.

An interesting comment in a Washington Post opinion piece yesterday: “Religion is declining in America overall but in some ways becoming an even more important force within the Republican Party. We have less religion but still very religiously influenced politics.”

The restoration of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris is five years in the making. Spire revelations indicate a gold chicken near the top of the new spire. Why a chicken? A rooster to be accurate.

A rooster was in the old spire. Not gold, however. Some form of metal. The rooster is considered a symbol representing the French people. Based on a play on words. The Latin gallus meaning Gaul and gaul meaning also coz or rooster.

The old rooster contained three relics: A small piece of the Crown of Thorns, a relic of Saint Denis, and a relic pf Saint Genevieve, the patron saint of Paris.

During the fire that devastated the Cathedral on April 15, 2019, the rooster was thought to be lost. However after the debris was cleared, the rooster was discovered intact and the relics recovered.

The find was considered a remarkable one and provided a glimmer of hope amid the destruction. The gold one represents a symbol of resilience and hope for the people of Paris and the world.

Roosters were used as weathervanes in medieval Europe. Often placed on top of churches. The rooster on Notre Dame’s spire served this function as well.

The Supreme Court must want to hang themselves. Crazy decisions are becoming their forte.

Yesterday, the Supreme Court heard oral argument in the case of Fischer v. United States. The case involves whether the Justice Department has been over-prosecuting January 6 insurrectionists. The majority of the Court seemed to side with the insurrectionists.

We are a screwed up society. Most of the Justices likewise. Certain Justices seemed to think the Justice Department has been too hard on persons prosecuted, even though sentencing has been minimal in many cases.

We must get rid of the Justices who are as whacked out as the Republican majority in Congress. We cannot survive as a Nation if these mental deviates are permitted to remain in power and control decision making.

Echo test today at noon. Another follow up to the heart surgeries. 

Enjoy your day!
