Today, tidbits, mostly because I’ve had a long day and my mind is going in about fifteen directions, none of which make for particularly interesting reading.
Well, turns out that Hurricane Douglas only grazed Oahu and the other islands in the chain.
Star Trek: Discovery returns to that CBS All Access thing October 15th.
Attorney General William Barr testifies in front of the House Judiciary Committee Tuesday morning. The Washington Post reports he will be taking “a defiant posture,” which, y’know, for so many reasons, I don’t want to see.
John Lewis lay in state in the US Capitol on Monday. I was surprised to hear he was the first black lawmaker to do so.
You want some stuff to read that isn’t people screaming at each other in 280 characters? Might I recommend Mary’s essay remembering John Lewis? Or perhaps Nancy’s most recent post discussing the departed founding member of Fleetwood Mac and the also departed guy who got his obituary ready for the AP. And ababsurdo.com, the home of the fabled Kayak Woman, is always a pleasure for reliably holding up her life in surprisingly abstract ways.
Okay, I think I’m ready for some sleep and a more focused week ahead. And I’m fresh out of asterisks.
