Joe Biden has dropped out of the presidential race.

Uncharted waters ahead. Grab a life preserver and some Xanax. But above all, your resolve.

Like President Biden, I have Covid.

Unlike him, I don't need to make a decision that will effect the destiny of our nation, the survival of democracy and the future of the planet.

Good thing, as I'm currently unable to decide whether to tie my shoes.

Yesterday evening I was watching a WNBA game when I decided I really should look in on the Republican National Convention. I like to know what's going on, and how bad could it be to watch for a few minutes?

Mike Johnson said last night the GOP is the "law and order team."

"We always have been and we always will be the advocates for the rule of law." That same party just made a convicted felon its nominee.

In order to preserve our sanity during this unnerving election season, three college friends and I have established a group text so we can kvetch from Maine, where they are, to Washington state, where I am. Diane, Carol and Meghan are straight, but definitely not, as the saying goes, narrow.

Today's news that Donald Trump has chosen JD Vance as his running mate, and that Vance's friendship with Donald Trump Jr. influenced the decision, prompted Diane to send out photos of the bearded conservative buddies, noting how they look alike.

One glance at the photos and I texted back, "If I weren't already a lesbian, this might do the trick."
