People are comfortable insulting others with the broadest possible brush, but God help you if they can infer the slightest affront to themselves.

For whatever it means, Jerry Lewis was front page news here. Dick Gregory wasn't . . .

I meant to do that

Out for my morning walk and came across one of our "occasional" cats, gray and white and fairly small, with stripes on the gray. It ignored me and focused on something out of sight, so I moved on a few steps and saw two doves bobbling along a driveway. Watched as the cat tensed, quivered, and charged. The doves, of course, left with plenty of room and time to spare.

So the cat turned, trotted over to me, and rubbed my ankles. "Just chasing some vermin out of the neighborhood. Scritch me."

Which, of course, I did.

So "anti-fascist" is now an insult? The WWII veterans of my family offer a suitable bit of military language . . .

Lawn has been mowed.  Barely needed it, but there will be Stuff happening to get in the way of later.
