It’s only Monday afternoon and I’m already writing Wednesday’s article. Today’s topic wasn’t quite a stop the presses moment, but it was close.
I ended yesterday’s article not because I ran out of material; but because I feared that I was overtaxing my readers’ attention spans. So today we continue.
“Remember all men would be tyrants if they could.” That is a quote from a March 1776 letter Abigail Adams wrote to her husband John. I’m not sure that is completely true, but it seems to me that all the world’s current tyrants and wannabe tyrants are male. If you, like the majority of my readers, is an American you can do something about not allowing the membership of the club to grow.
Timeline: The morning of Tuesday July 11, 2023
Today the baseball All Star Game is being played in Seattle. A lot of baseball brass will all be in the same place at the same time. While they may not happen for a bit and certainly won’t be announced, a lot of deals will take place. Much the same can be said for NATO’s leaders gathering in Vilnius, Lithuania. In this case, the biggest deals have been announced, Joe Biden was at the center of most of them and we’ll visit a few of them below.
Today’s version of progressive sweeping will be a bit more opinionated and snarkier than usual. It should be more entertaining in addition to being informative.
