NYTimes Picks 2019

This year the NYT editors picked my comments about a long ago trip to Alcatraz, two of the Democrat debates, whether Biden is the most electable, and my never-ending lament on America’s gun-lust.

Media Finally Woke

Some in the media got a clue. Michelle Wolf’s outrageous yet often apt comedic rant rang true. Three op-eds in the NYTimes today discuss the media’s Trump obsession and overreach which give him a constant stage and control of his agenda. Dowd. Douthat. Kristof. Well done. Stormy on SNL. That’s funny. Right place and time. Not on CNN and MSNBC all day.

Derby fire soundly doused. As was the track. Tiger still in play on the course at Quail Hollow. Phippy carded a 64 yesterday.
