Sober Reflections

Thankfully didn’t sip each time Trump uttered the litany of targeted SOTU words. Would have been ugly. Melania wore white. As a nod to suffragettes? Serious stretch. Dems responses too disparate to follow. Bernie’s online feed failed. Joe Kennedy’s spittle a distraction. Maxine Waters on BET? Did anybody see that? Cohesive messaging please.

Finished a relevant novel. Home Fire by Kamila Shamsie. Man Booker longlisted story which reflects past observations about the Lost Boys who join gangs to feel valued and find direction. From Northampton, Massachusetts to Raqqa. An important read.
