Grand Jeté

A gracefully athletic move in ballet. Taking a leap like today. Hard to believe that Sadie Hawkins is relevant in 2020. Men typically still “propose” to women. Only on this leap day can a woman “ask” the man to marry. Equal rights and pay? Not if these traditions stay.

South Carolina primary. Will voters keep Biden in the race or continue the Bernie revolution into Super Tuesday. Bloomberg will be buying ads ’til the end either way. And. For $17m Tony Romo remains at CBS. Yay.

Donkeys & Dragons

As the Night King, his Wights and newly turned dragon close in on Winterfell, there are cobbled-together troops and two dragons waiting to fend them off. Who will rule on the Iron Throne if they do? Cersei. Jon the true Targaryen. Dany his lovie aunt. Sansa Stark of the North. A Boratheon. All the other kings and queens waiting in the wings. Or. Will they all die and the Night King reign supreme.

Kinda like the 19 soon to be 20 donkeys lining up to take over the White House and de-throne the Orange King. See above. Seriously. Impeachment, righteous indignation and a wobbly cast of would-be presidents are not strategies to replace The Donald. One good candidate who can get more votes is the only happy ending.
