If history is any guide the next few days’ articles will center on the Supreme Court so I’ll try to “tidy up” my notes and such a bit first.
Well, as I pen this, I have recently received my “gift” from Donald Trump’s incompetence; earlier today (June 12, 2023) I tested positive for COVID-19. Most likely in large part due to competence of Joe Biden, my symptoms are mild and I’m feeling no worse than if I were suffering a somewhat bad cold. Enough about the twice impeached and (as of this writing) twice criminally indicted ex-president; I have a few other world figures I’d like to comment on today.
This will be another of my periodic attempts to catch up and simultaneously vent. If history is any guide, both efforts will be incomplete.
There was plenty of competition for the biggest political story of the week just ended: banks failed, we were on the brink of an international banking crisis and the indictment of the immediately past American president loomed among other things. I’m focusing on Ukraine today.
I have a lot of observations and insights to share today so here we go.
