Last Stuffer


Unfortunately Traumatic Trump Stress Disorder TTSD will endure for 4 years now. What remedies will there be? Besides drink and drugs. Read a great book. Currently liking Amor Towles’ A Gentleman in Moscow. Sweet. Turn off the TV and take a walk. Cook while listening to music. Go to the theater. Binge on Netflix’ The Crown. Non-news shows. Go to an art gallery or museum. Try to find humor wherever you can. NFL.

SNL a good antidote for anxiety last night. Kate McKinnon as Hillary’s poignant rendition of Leonard Cohen’s iconic anthem Hallelujah hit the right notes of sadness and hope. Dave Chappelle did more to eviscerate white liberals’ faux moral outrage than any right-winger ever could. Lorne Michaels has clearly decided to take the stand of edgy opposition.

Steak & Debate

A little steak, shallot mushroom reduction, pinot noir. She Wolf Bakery bâtard from Brooklyn via Columbus Avenue Sunday Market. Recipe for debate prep.

After dinner. Sip a cocktail each time Hillary says stronger together, lifetime of fighting for children and families, experience, work hard for you. Each time Donald says IRS audit, make America something again, believe me, stamina. Either says Putin, Israel, Iraq, Iran, ISIS, Syria, red line, refugees, immigrants. Hoping for a freak-out. Expecting discipline. Here we go!
