"May you live in interesting times"

    Any other boomers having the realization: we did and we do? This tweet hit me hard like that:

     Or, if you prefer: what a long strange trip it's been.


    I'm still having trouble figuring out why dressing up in drag for "fun", i.e. to make fun of women, isn't the same level of disgrace as blackface, with women traditionally scorned, made fun of, sold off into slavery, sexual & physically abused, sometimes killed, and otherwise maintaining their status of the abused in much of the world.

    Having a couple of fuckwad abusers like Trump & Giuliani (friends of Jeffrey Epstein) accepted doing it only adds to my cognitive dissonance.

    But that's just me being me.


    On that I have seen some minor kerfuffles among the more radical LGBTQ set, along the lines of drag queens demeaning women...I vaguely recalll something Andrew Sullivan tried to do a 'splainer on for the youngins, how this is in the tradition of clowns exaggerating human condition, probably to no avail, likely soon it will ramp up and RuPaul will be considered persona non grata, one and the same with Trumpworld...

    This isn't the only video of Giuliani dressing in drag.It's a thing with him. He's done it more than once. I don't really care if a guy puts on a dress but I do find this "transvestite" show bizarre.

    Er, just to be safe, shouldn't they claim it well before the end of the month?

    • Tickets for Euromillions are sold in nine countries - the UK, France, Spain, Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, the Irish Republic, Portugal and Switzerland - with ticket-holders in all those countries trying to win a share of the same jackpot each week [....]

    Change in taxes due could be huge.
