Now that I am past my Cinco de Mayo kerfuffle, it's on to el Seis de Mayo. While you are reading this, you may want to know that there is a giant piece of space junk that is orbiting around the earth right now, and is predicted to fall to earth by this weekend. Problem is, no one knows where it is going to fall. The "junk" comprises the booster rocket that launched a Chinese space station a few days ago. We can complain about pollution on our streets and our water, but this is something that can do serious damage to people and cities if it were to crash on them. You can read it here, while or after you absorb HCR's perspective on the melt down of the Jim Crow Party:
Hitching one's wagon to a star was Ralph Waldo Emerson's advice for setting a high standard goal.
However, when a political party is all in on hitching its wagon to Trumpism, one has to wonder what
goal is being set for such a lowly mark.
