Republican Senators struck deaf

perdueIn an odd moment for the current administration, both Republican Senators Perdue and Cotton were struck deaf at the same moment during a meeting in the Oval. Here Trump does his best to help Perdue back to his seat just after being told by Perdue, “I can’t hear you!” As usual, Trump prefers to help people to their seats with his eyes closed. Sources close to the President said that Sudden Deaf Syndrome is a common occurrence among certain Republican Senators, especially those from the South, North or Midwest, or West. There is no available data on how long the deafness lasts, or if it is related to early onset dementia, as is the case with the President, obviously.  It also makes it very diffiucult for them to hear or respond to questions from reporters.

Happy New Year to Adam and Mitchell and everyone else

31VOWS1-superJumbo-v3“A man born to an Orthodox Jewish family in Toronto and schooled at a Yeshiva and a Japanese-American man raised on the island of Oahu, Hawaii, were married in the rare books section of the Strand Bookstore in Greenwich Village before a crowd of 200 people, against a backdrop of an arch of gold balloons that were connected to each other like intertwined units of a necklace chain or the link emoji, in a ceremony led by a Buddhist that included an operatic performance by one friend, the reading of an original poem based on the tweets of Yoko Ono by another, and a lip-synced rendition of Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” by a drag queen dressed in a white fringe jumper and a long veil.”

What an excellent uplifting life-affirming way to end this miserable year. Click on the photo to read the full story in the Times. And have a happy new year.
