A Crappy Sunday (Interim Entry) and Those Who Forget the History Channel are Doomed to Rewatch It


Van Gogh's Starry Night

Today has been a shitty day spent mostly all alone. I'm in a crappy mood. I plan to have a new entry posted for Tuesday morning with my cellphone camera crummy but still evocative rainy Connecticut Avenue night walk pictures.

Here is one of them ...

The 2000 block of Connecticut Avenue, NW, Washington, D.C., 11:49PM, Oct. 17, 2009. I'll post more of them in my next entry.

My next small claims court date is for Wednesday as yet another Ebola-like collection agency that is after me. I'm totally unprotected because I can't do a chapter 7 bankruptcy until next August.

In the mean time, my Saturday entry below has a lot of content if you are interested in that sort of thing.

I also recommend the following two opinion pieces in The New York Times by Paul Krugman and Frank Rich about the continuing mass criminality of Goldman Sachs and the other "vampire squid" monsters of Wall Street that President Obama is simply and BAFFLINGLY enabling (his good speeches notwithstanding). It is rather frustrating to read these things -- infuriating really -- but it's still good to know.

Speaking of presidents, the History Channel has decided for some reason to air an especially gory detailed documentary about the JFK assassination -- with that mind numbing footage we've all seen replayed a thousand times and that can never have a different outcome no matter how many more times we see it (thanks, Mr. Zapruder) -- that focuses on the forgotten but critical details of what happened in the next 24 hours once LBJ had assumed the presidency. What I don't get is: Why did they have an open motorcade?? Even in 1963.
