Maybe it's just me but I'm starting to like the Trump model of a politician. Why let a clean pressed suit with impeccable manners screw you over when you can have someone whose outside matches his insides?
I've seen it over and over that the Harvey Weinsteins of the world are the way they are because they grew up in a different time. But Harvey Weinstein et al grew up at a time when you were actually expected to treat women with courtesy, when there was at least the slightest vestige of chivalry. What's it going to be like when the Tinder generation starts running things? Sorry ladies.
It's been reported that John McCain was in the hospital for side effects of cancer treatment and that he's resting up to vote for the tax bill. Since I have a little experience here I already know that's probably not true. The downward slide from a GBM is pretty quick. It was reported a week or so ago that a second brain tumor was found in the area where his tumor was removed, but it's actually the leftover cells from the previous tumor regrowing again. GBMs grow very quickly. I wouldn't be surprised if he misses that next vote and sadly he may not make it to the end of the year. That's how awful this disease is. It's the most common primary brain tumor you can get and yet it feels like there isn't a ton of awareness about it.
Time for another downer since life sucks (and I also sadly have experience here too). When Vin Scully walked out for the World Series, he had all the classic symptoms of Parkinson's. If I have to be super-bummed about something, you do too. Sorry.
