Deborah Ramirez

I'm forcing myself to write this.

The Ramirez allegation-which I completely believe btw- is itself not grounds to prevents approval.

He behaved in a disgusting manner.  People  sometimes do .18 year old freshman more apt  than many others. Putting aside whether it should be  accepted as evidence  of a disqualifying attitude towards women the event itself was  drunken tawdry and disgraceful. Did I behave disgracefully before I was 20? Don't ask. Did you?

Dr. Ford should say "Yes."

sometime over the weekend.. On whatever terms Atty Katz has been able to obtain by then. 

But only after  Katz first  reveal's the Committee's proposed terms , and  the changes  Ford  requests  , while  saying  she will accept the  Committee's  terms if confirmed  by a majority of the Committee.

Between now and  her Committee  appearance she should be thoroughly  trained. As  Kavanaugh has already been, With "mock" sessions  video'd ,critiqued and repeated as necessary,

Kavanaugh could save the Republicans

by confessing.

Otherwise there is going to be a democratic House after November.

But  if Kavanaugh admits the charge, apologizes and  rends  his garments appropriately there is an army of Republican women who would  feel  they should exercise their mature powers by defying the polls and make their usual comfortable Republican vote. Including the two last hopes in the Senate.

"It's time to admit

“ that I once withheld important information from readers”John Authers wrote in last weekend’s FT.  “ It was 10 years ago…….I think I did the right thing. But a decade on I need to discuss it”

"The moment came  September 17 2008…..when world finance came closest to...collapse. But I did not write as much.”

Authers authors (if you’ll permit me ) what can be  an influential FT column. If he writes it.


"I can't believe it"

one of the  women said.

We were silentl until then- waiting  in the serious surgery  waiting room at Brigham's & Women's.

"That Mr. Starr wants to force Chelsea to testify against her father:. 

She was reading her Globe .

The other woman  :

I'm an attorney. In Oklahoma. We have an annual Bar 

Association meeting and this year we invited Mr. Starr to 

address us Paid his twenty thousand dollars.


All first graders

should read at first grade level at the end of the year.

And bridges shouldn't fall down.

That wouldn't eliminate inequality or improve Israeli-Arab relations but it would ensure that all second graders would be ready for the second grade -and make it safe to cross the Missouri. That would be a start,

Reading  D-blog  clearly there is a palpable sense of despair at the injustices that desperately need to be remedied and the inadequacies of the "leaders" who  should do that . Guess what , that was always the case.

That explains it.

A woman, psychologist perhaps, on MSNBC argues Trump's gravest fear is being exposed as being a financial failure.

Someone (maybe her?) argues that at some point, on the brink of a massive bankruptcy, he was saved only by an infusion of Russian cash arranged by you know who.

Which explains reneging on his promise to reveal his tax records. And the collu...meetings at the Trump Tower "to discuss adoptions."

We should deal with Trump/Kim

It's happening and it is immensely important.

I'll open the floor gates and I expect that  after me the sensible people will join in.

My belief is that Trump is actually pretty well qualified for today's meeting.

He made money in a tough league. That's real.  Of course ,exaggerated but for him to exaggerate , there had  to be something for  him to exaggerate, There was some "there" there.

The  Dagblog view  of his character is unsparing. None of us have a word of praise or even tolerance,

Rightly so.

He's  morally unspeakable.


Monday's IDF commander was not a war criminal.

It's absolutely impossible to say who was "responsible" for that day's 60 deaths. The unspoken assumption underlying a lot of Monday's press coverage is that Israel was to blame. Rightly so?
