For Chris Mathews fans... I know there are some out there:)

What is going on? Like they've got him on this apology tour? They're trying to remediate his reputation?

I really missed him during all the trump turmoil. I know many disagree, but we could have really used his take back then.

I have not watched MSNBC since they canned him. I wish that if he came back, he would go to CNN, personally.

Any restaurant foodies from DC here?

Spending one night in DC in June. Since we currently live in a food desert in central TX, so looking forward to a great dinner in DC.

But been overwhelmed with all the options of dozens and dozens of places.

Any recommendations? Been looking at pre-fixe and Michelin options. We're pretty adventurous but not to the point of not even recognizing anything on menu Favorites.. farm-to-table, seafood, steak, Cajun, Italian seafood..

Wow, pretty heavy. Jill Biden once said Kamala Harris could go "go fuck yourself?"

After debate.

Evidently NOT denied by WH office. But good news...they decided to move way beyond the episode. Obviously if Joe picked Kamala! Bygones we all understood.

Still pretty fascinating to me how people can just get over stuff in the political world.

Cliches in film you are sick of?

Chief of police always a wise black guy. Never a white jerk.

Teenagers that constantly disrespect and dismiss their parents. Slam bedroom door on them.

Mother who's got some important job literally running around in a kitchen with an island eating a piece of toast trying to make breakfast for everyone.

Borgen, Borgen, Borgen! Absolutely the best drama I have

seen in many years. One episode left to watch (saving). Season 4 out 2022. Danish series ( 3 seasons) English dub.

We have talked of it here but need to reiterate

About Denmark's government, politics, culture, media, policies, mixed with sex and human relationships. If that sounds good, check it out.

IMHO.. 10 out if 10

trump's biggest crime against humanity, why isn't it a big deal?

Early on, he purposely hid the fact that the virus was deadly and airborne.

He admitted this to Woodward on tape! Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of people died because they weren't sufficiently warned.

Can "get over" all but this.

Nicest spring since moving to TX in 1997. Mild not hot. Few mosquitoes.

Lots of rain. Everything green. Vegetable and herb plants loving it too.

Early nice parts of dead end climate change?
