The Jury Talks Back


Open Thread

I got nothing. I watched the Metropolitan Opera movie broadcast of “Cosi Fan Tutte” this morning. Mrs. P. and I are going to watch Monty Python’s Holy Grail tonight, with after-commentary by John Cleese. Right now I am going to take a walk to feed my new Fitbit Alta, which has been a nice way of encouraging myself to walk and exercise more, and monitor caloric intake with their online dashboard.

I’m not interested in the stories floating around out there, but maybe you are. The umpteenth Big Media story about Trump Unleashed? Pass. Roseanne doing well in the ratings? Pass. Laura Ingraham battle with teenager? Nope. Trump tweets about Amazon? Don’t care.

Maybe you have a topic that isn’t deadly boring. Meanwhile, I’m taking my stroll.


  1. Monty Python always provides a sense of perspective. Whatever happens in the next few weeks, you can always shake your head and think “just as nutty as anyone could make up a story about”.

  3. So criticizing Trump actually gets better results than unconditional support. Imagine that.

  4. Trump has a big leak problem. He wants to be an elite establishment Republican but his roots and instincts are with populists. He can’t be both. The leaks will continue whenever his populist instincts surface.
