Charles Grodin, the versatile actor familiar from "Same Time, Next Year" on Broadway, popular movies like "The Heartbreak Kid," "Midnight Run" and "Beethoven" and numerous television appearances, has died at 86. https://t.co/UUOtOWDJDu

He's especially happy to be remembered for "Beethoven", I'm sure.

I appear today before you as a recipient of TWO Moderna vaccinations, yes, TWO MODERNA VACCINATIONS, and in a couple of weeks I will...probably still stay at home a lot because I'm not all that into being elsewhere, but perhaps I'll work back into getting a restaurant meal now and again.

Got my shot at 10:00 a.m. and my arm just started aching a bit at 1:00.  I made sure to hydrate adequately to try to stave off headachey stuff, so far so good, but we'll see how it goes.

Good evening everyone. This was a good Tuesday. My wife and I met with her neurologist to go over the results of a recent PET scan. No abnormalities were detected. This is a great relief. Over the last several months she has been having issues with balance, tremors, memory and some other stuff. Changes in medications seem to have eliminated most of her problems but she has still been having memory issues. Since both her parents had/have Alzheimer's we have been really worried about this. None of the testing shows any indication of Alzheimer's so we are pretty darn happy. The neurologist believes that the memory problems are lingering effects from previous medications, we'll see. I asked my wife what her favorite scan was (she's had CAT scan, PET scan, and MRI.). She says she liked the PET scan the best because she fell asleep during it.
I hope you are all well!

That's great news.  My grandmother had Alzheimer's, as did my mom (although none of her four sisters had or have it), so every time I can't come up with a word or forget where I put my purse I am horrified at the thought that it's happening to me.  I'm glad you and your wife have gotten some reassurance; even when you don't know what it *is* it's often just as helpful to know what it *isn't*.

House votes 364-62 to pass a bill aimed at combating hate crimes against Asian Americans. All 62 "no" votes came from Republicans. The Senate passed the bill 94-1 (Hawley was the lone opponent), meaning it now goes straight to @POTUS's desk.

JulieAzel626: An alleged victim gave graphic and disturbing details about a night in 2003 when she says actor Danny Masterson raped her - and she says leaders of the Church of Scientology discouraged her from going to police.


That sounds about right, both for Masterson and CoS. TOTALLY on brand for CoS.

Update:  It was not, sadly, cocaine or tequila (not that $1.69 would have bought a therapeutic dose of either) or anything else for me.  It was an extra key for Kid's house.

In retaliation, I am eating all of the leftover sweet and sour chicken and rice.

So I went to the grocery store to pick up a few things for mom and dad. In front of me were 2 older women and in front of them was a dude probably in his 40's at  the checkout. They were espousing about the people getting the extra $300 on unemployment and those people are lazy. When the 2 women checked out they paid in food stamps.

I was amazed at the stupidity.

The problem with the Andrew Brown press conference is that it's all based on the premise that they needed to roll up on him guns blazing in broad daylight while he was in a parked car awake and alert rather than waiting him out and raiding his house at 4 AM.

Times of Israel:

The White House dismisses the Abraham Accords brokered by the Trump administration that saw the establishment of diplomatic ties between Israel and several Arab states.

"Aside from putting forward a peace proposal that was dead on arrival, we don't think they did anything constructive, really, to bring an end to the long-standing conflict in the Middle East," says Press Secretary Jen Psaki, when asked specifically about the normalization agreements.

Okay, let's review....

Through unchallenged gerrymandering and voter suppression (due to Mitch's judicial apparatchiks) Repuglicans are a LOCK to 'win' back the House in 2020.  Biden's impeachment will start the next day.

Every Red state is accelerating their open defiance of any and all Federal laws and regulation.  Public mask wearing will probably soon be both illegal and justification for assault.

Tennessee is about two weeks from requiring all Trans folk wear pink triangles when in public.

The Supreme (ly biased) Court is finally getting their test case to kill Roe v Wade, God Bless Gilead.

Not only will the seditious Reps and Senators NEVER be prosecuted by the DOJ for their crimes, the equally ball-less House (in it's waning days) will also not have the sack enough to publicly and thoroughly expose the January 6 crimes against American Democracy.

All the while, that solid 40% chunk of Americans will continue to live their dial-tone like existence, steadfastedly refusing to acknowledge or act on the rise of national white supremacist fascism, all while drinking their shiate burnt coffee and mindlessly chattering about the next garbage country singer on Dancing With the Racists.

All the while MSM say BSAB.

Have I missed anything?

I thought 2021 would be us pulling out of the nosedive.  Not seeing it.

According to my wife's accounts of our local Facebook group (I stay away from that stuff) the most popular topic is how all the local fast food places are understaffed and or shutting down due to lack of workers. They contend that people won't work because the unemployment benefits are too generous. They don't like it when she suggests that maybe the restaurants should pay more and improve their work environment if they need to attract more workers. The responses usually end in "something something socialism".
