  1. No words, just heartbroken miss you b!
  2. allowed? Melania has a somewhat unconventional taste in clothes, but a statement? what is the statement? …. and what good is the statement if it is so subtle that no one knows what it is? Anyway, I don't know who Helga is but I'm guessing the comparison is not complimentary …. and the reference to the "best" comments on social media, that I can only assume is vulgarity or mysogyny, seems gratuitous to me …. so I asked why.
  3. USPS lost 8.8 billion in 2019. Regardless of the justification, not everyone thinks that is good. What did I say that was wrong? https://www.govexec.com/management/2019/11/postal-service-doubles-annual-losses-88-billion/161317/
  4. I think he condemned the Minneapoilis cops involved in the Floyd death. The federal district prosecutor there is investigating civil rights violations, I believe. I remember him wanting to send national guard to cut back on looting, fires etc. but most of the mayors didn't want assistance. Federal authority is limited in these matters apparently.

Would have been nice to see Brooks follow-up on this. Bruce obviously thinks that a significant portion of the electorate have racist tendencies. I'd have liked to have heard Bruce tell what reasons or evidence he has for thinking this. It's a volatile statement and just throwing it out there and Brooks not pursuing it and Bruce not
  9. Brooks: There is a question I’ve always wanted to ask you. You’ve spent so much of your life writing about working-class men and, in particular, working-class men who were victims of deindustrialization, who used to work in the factories and mills that were closed, whether in Asbury Park or Freehold or Youngstown or throughout the Midwest. But a lot of those guys didn’t turn out to share your politics. They became Donald Trump supporters. What’s your explanation for that? Springsteen: There’s a long history of working people being misled by a long list of demagogues, from George Wallace a
  10. well our last cup is already 25 years old. If it takes a little voodoo to get over the finish line then it has to be done.
