The NYT has just endorsed Hillary Clinton to be the nominee for the Dems. President Obama has already endorsed her for POTUS. I just wanted to share some facts that I believe are relevant.
For the millionth time, where is that self-driving car I've been waiting years to own? No more drunk driving accidents. No more runned over pets. Plus, I can't drive, so mobility! My dearest dream is of a self-driving RV all my own. Lately I've been thinking--I wonder if it'll even happen within my lifetime? I guess I shouldn't have gotten my hopes set on easy transportation. My mistake. I'm trying to let it go.
I have a new dog. She was adopted from a shelter. She's a mutt and she is a skinny six pounds. She's an adult dog that's already house-trained. Yay! She's black and brown with wiry fur and huge scaredy eyes. I'm happy with her.
That Zika outbreak is terrifying. Mosquitoes are the vectors/source. Brazil is the hardest hit. Apparently, screens over windows and doors is uncommon there. That would be a very worthwhile charitable drive--giving much needed mosquito netting to poor Brazilians. Those poor babies and their poor Moms! Microcephaly has no cure. They're doomed.
Parade season has begun. I don't go to them anymore, but lots of people really enjoy a Carnival parade in the New Orleans area.
Anyway, have a good week ahead. Stay safe. Think about those important endorsements. Think of those babies that are gonna suffer for the rest of their lives just because their Mom was infected by a goddamn mosquito during her pregnancy. Pray for a vaccine , I guess. There has to be a charity out there that gives South and Central American poor people free screens and netting to protect them from disease carrying insect bites.
