When I’m 69…

March 13, 2023

Selection Sunday is over & now with play-in games, 68 teams are in March Madness. Not quite as much fun as watching games.. but there is something about outrage from fans of teams who were presumably 69th, 70th, 71st, 72nd & just missed chance of being destroyed in 1st round.

UNC, widely considered preseason men’s basketball number 1, did not make the NCAA tournament. And the Tarheels declined an invitation to the NIT.

So they didn’t even think they could win that?

Jimmy Kimmel in opening monologue at the Oscars. “Five Irish actors are nominated tonight. So the odds of another fight on stage just went up.” Points for everyone who bet on a Will Smith joke.

Jimmy Kimmel talks about the importance of editing. ‘”You can turn 44,000 hours of an insurrection into a sightseeing excursion.”

Finally saw “The Banshees of Inisherin”” Thought-provoking, great acting, great cinematography…. but even with my twisted sense of humor, IMHO it’s not a comedy.

We’re all exhausted just with losing an hour’s sleep. Imagine how we’d feel losing our democracy.

Wisconsin Supreme court election April 4 is the next battle. #Vote


“My husband is in prison just for telling the truth. My husband is in prison just for defending democracy.”

Yulia Navalnaya, wife of Alexei Navalny. As documentary about her husband wins an Oscar. Think it can’t happen here?

Again, #Vote

Colorado “Romeo and Juliet” law may shield Lauren Boebert’s son from being prosecuted.

Although in most states, including Florida, if his pregnant girlfriend was 15, she was still under age of consent & sex w/ a 15 year old is a crime. But sure, let’s talk about drag queens.

Nancy Mace was the latest GOP member of Congress to call for raising the Social Security retirement age.

Nancy Mace, 45, is a divorced mother of two, now engaged to be married again. Good for her. But apparently she isn’t counting on needing Social Security herself. . She and her fiance just bought a little house last summer in South Carolina. For. $3.9 million!.

Has a single one of these anti-choice GOP members of Congress said they’d support returning the Child Tax Credit or making it easier for mothers with children to get food stamps? I’ll wait.

Jane Fonda says comments about murdering anti-abortion people were”obviously made in jest.” GOP pearl clutchers were fine in 2016 when Trump said of Hillary Clinton “If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although 2nd Amendment people, maybe there is.”

A man in Texas is suing women he claims helped his ex-wife get abortion pills. Leaving aside everything else wrong with this, if we want to cut down on potential abortions, when will a woman sue men for helping their friends get Viagra?

As we stumble into the first monday of Daylight Savings Time -has Fox News blamed Joe Biden for losing an hour’s sleep yet?
