18 Jun 16: All along the campaign trail, Hillary frequently espouses her support for the LGBT community. Rather interesting when at the same time the Clinton Foundation reports that it has received donations of over $50 miilion dollars from countries that persecute and imprison gay people. If she were sincere in her statements, wouldn't you think she would be careful in seeing that the foundation not accept such bribes. Yes, they're bribes...for favors past and future. And even more interesting is the silence of the LGBT community. How come it isn't condemning her in strong terms for her hypocritical position?

16 Jun 16: Yesterday Space-X launched a satellite and tried to recover the rocket by landing it on a barge in the ocean. The recovery was a failure, but we now have a new term for destruction: Rapid Unscheduled Disassembly. If my car is destroyed in an accident, I wonder how the insurance company will react to a claim for a Rapid Unscheduled Disassembly?

10 Jun 16: Last weekend I attended my college 50th reunion. I hadn't really wanted to go, but my two best friends, Sue and The Q, convinced me that I should.  Glad I did. At long last the walls of the cliques and the Greeks have come down and everyone was able to talk to everyone else with no judgement. As a GDI, I had felt that condescension at previous reunions. Nice to see that everyone has finally grown up.
