I got to hear Bishop Desmond Tutu speak

At a press conference before an awards event where he was being honored. A small man in physical stature, but a moral giant. He had a humorous, but elegant way with words. He talked about the South African government invented the nonsense classification of “Foreign Native”. He let that sink in as the assembled group chuckled. I’ll never forget him.

I second that emotion.

Thank you everyone on DU! I don't care what candidate you support. I love you! Procedure went ok.

Home recovering from anesthesia and a slight sore throat. Now the horrible wait on tests and biopsies. I can’t express how much I appreciate the help from you good folks, and especially the hearts 🥰

He's rich. Doesn't go broke buying his drugs. Ice cream, cheeseburgers.

He doesn’t seem to have any appreciation for quality cuisine. Maybe a side effect. Long time Amphetamine users can build a tolerance to the appetite killing effect, I think. Also he gets top quality dental care. That’s just from my limited anecdotal knowledge.

Just take a look at Hitler in the film watching the 1936 Olympics.

From google:“Olympia is a 1938 German documentary sports film written, directed and produced by Leni Riefenstahl, which documented the 1936 Summer Olympics, held in the Olympic Stadium in Berlin, Germany.“
It’s a beautiful sports film. It’s a damn shame it was all done for Nazi propaganda.
Watching Hitler, anybody who has done meth, or knows someone who did, will recognize the condition. He is speeding out of his mind. Lots of meth. That’s why they believed that they were supermen. And how they were able to treat other people as less than human. I don’t think this is talked about enough.
Definitely see similar signs in trump, as well as Stephen Miller and others.

"Re-enlistment Blues"

In the movie “From Here to Eternity”

My hitch was up Monday
Not a dog soljer nor more
soljer no more.
They give me all that money
So much my pockets is sore
pockets is sore.
More dough than I can use
Re-Enlistment Blues

My cat is a comfort

I had breast cancer lumpectomy and chemo. Pet scan showed enlarged lymph nodes. Bronchoscopy Monday. Don’t know what to expect. Pessimistic. My brother will be here tomorrow. Thanks for the understanding. I hate being such a coward.
