    My day too. She's making a joke of "slutty." If a boy got past first base, we kept it secret.

    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    I'm with you on this effect on all the Duggar children growing up. There can be a butterfly effect. When my eldest daughter was three, I took a Stanford-Binet testing course. She was one of the children I practiced on. She loved it (most children do), but she loved it so much she never forgot. She became a school psychologist largely because of the one afternoon experience with her Momma. I believe the coupling of this happy testing experience combined with her three-year-old relationship with me had a real effect. Happily, it was totally good. Still I became sensitive to this likelihood with very young children.

    Meghan McCain: "Both Sides" Wannabe Tough Chick

    I think Meghan's shelf life will be up after the 2020 election. Her father's name will have some relevance until then.

    Meghan McCain: "Both Sides" Wannabe Tough Chick

    The only possible fun in Meghan lies in the comebacks of Joy, Sunny, and Ana. She plays the "villain," but nobody likes a show with just the villain. The fun of the villain is seeing her get thwarted by the heroes.

    Meghan McCain: "Both Sides" Wannabe Tough Chick

    I have a sense her father's presence softened her language. I think her marriage was a really negative development. She enjoyed her privileged life-style and I do believe she dreamed of being first daughter. I doubt she cares about government or history. She can't become the Princess of America but she can be her husband's blonde mouth piece. And she wants to ride the 2020 wave then (surely) write another book about her adventures as Princess-Interrupted.

    I was there once when Thurman was alive. I probably saw him too.

    I'm not sure why Barack Obama's Presidency relates to reparation since none of his ancestors were slaves in America.

    I'm about Biden's age so I remember all that stuff pretty well. I think he was picking the two worst Senators (in terms of justice for all). If he said, "I got along with John McCain" it would have been "yawn." I really was turned off by the word "boy," though. I like Joe. Joe blunders. I wish he didn't, but he does and he will.

    I would never vote for her for President, but I liked her. I knew about her as an author and the person who started Project Angelfood for homebound AIDS victims in rather early days. Anyway I like much about her perspective but don't consider her President material.
  12. Me, too. People also need to remember many people in their 80s have not have serious medical events at all.
  13. Dang, I've been reading this and thinking about how I'm a couple of years older. Granted, I've never had a stroke, but I still work part-time and recently traveled half-way around the world (first one way and then another) with no young people watching me. If there were no evidence she was confused, then she could and should make her own choices.

    Small Talk: The Prayer Closet

    I genuinely laugh about this, but I've had people (relative strangers) ask me if I have accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior. I've answered, "In fact I'm an ordained Methodist minister." And the person has said, "But have you accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior?"

    This is brilliant. I wondered when Joy made the reference to Columbia what she had in mind. Of course. She subtly reminded us that Meghan is a long-time New Yorker not some cowgirl who just arrived to get on The View panel.
