Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

A spot-on nickname for either Joe Biden or Kamala Harris at this point would be "the Albatross" because both have become like albatrosses around the neck of the Democratic Party. Biden for his legacy of incompetence (after just 8 f*cking months!) and Harris for her pure unlikability... Matt Taibbi: We Failed Afghanistan - Not the Other Way Around. The cynic in me can't help but think that at least the silver lining is the billions that were being spent on waste, fraud and corruption in Afghanistan can now be used to pay the rising interest on the national debt due to the inflation caused by Biden's failing economic polices... "Soiree" is not a word you hear much, if at all, anymore. What happened? Did people stop having soirees?... I had forgotten how dark a writer James Ellroy was. An excellent writer but dark, very dark... Meanwhile in Sweden... And speaking of writers - The Lexophile would be a good name for a blog about books...  Still say the Spanish National Anthem has the best official lyrics...
