      I was sad to see him get knocked out. He had great run in the tournament and he’s getting better! I look forward to seeing him reach a semi- or final in a major someday soon.

    “Kamala Harris Meets with family of Jacob Blake in Wisconsin”
    “Ahead of a roundtable with Black Milwaukee business leaders in the late afternoon,
    Harris took the moment to share some details of her meeting with Blake and his family.”
    Family lawyer: “Crump called the visit “inspirational” and “uplifting” and said Harris discussed policy changes she would seek if she and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden were elected, including the Justice in Policing Act and implicit bias training for law enforcement.
    In a moving moment, Jacob Jr. told Sen. Harris that he was proud of her,
    and the senator told Jacob that she was also proud of him and how he is working through his pain.
    Jacob Jr. assured her that he would not give up on life for the sake of his children,” Crump said in a statement following the meeting. “She encouraged them to continue to use their voices even through their pain to help America make progress to end systematic racism.”

    “It’s been five days since The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg published a staggering report on Donald Trump,
    his denigration of those who serve in the military, and his condemnation of fallen American heroes as “suckers” and “losers.” As the Washington Post’s David Ignatius wrote, the resulting firestorm has exploded the “bad marriage” between the Republican president and American military leaders.”

    BARR, lie after lie…both of the following statements are false:
    “Elections that have been held with mail have found substantial fraud and coercion. For example, we indicted someone in Texas — 1,700 ballots collected from people who could vote, he made them out and voted for the person he wanted to.” (Barr to Blitzer)
    FACT:
    “No one was indicted on a charge of casting 1,700 fraudulent ballots,
    and voter fraud is so rare in the United States,
    researchers describe it as a statistical blip whether the ballots are cast in-person or by mail.” (WaPo)
    = BARR…lying sleaze bag extraordinaire.

      utterly devastating, has to knock every possible kind of stuffing out of you.
      Went to a funeral decades ago for 2 adults and 3 children (cousins) dead due to car accident. Police and military were there, the event was massive and the grave was massive. You cannot comprehend. Multiply that by X n+1 for the remains of how many fallen military returning home and the unimaginable experience for the family. And i am remembering how PBO met them there so faithfully.

      Plus we’re already seeing mail being dumped and trashed.
      I am glad and thankful that postal chiefs are telling us.
      No time for denial. No choice.
      Thinking out of the box we HAVE to solve it — perhaps in extraordinary and creative ways.

    “Watch this stunning fact check on Trump’s claims about economic recovery”
    ““The pace of job recovery is actually slowing fairly dramatically,” Rattner said.
    “One other small point, the 8.4 percent unemployment rate is really 9.1 percent — the Department of Labor said there was a misclassification error, so that number isn’t as good either.
    Let’s turn to this question whether we’re dealing with a broad-based recovery of jobs or something more narrow. What you can see on the next chart are the disparities in how different Americans have fared. This is because the pandemic or the economic crisis didn’t hit every industry equally, travel, recreation, restaurants, so on, where people of color, lower income, women work and it was hit disproportionately hard.”

      “If you are a Black person, 11.2 percent of Blacks lost their jobs, compared to 6.4 percent of whites,”
      he added. “If you have less than a high school diploma, almost 19 percent of those folks lost their jobs. If you have a college degree, you probably didn’t lose your job at all, because virtually none of them lost their jobs since this started.”

    • September 8, 2020 at 11:55 am

      “If you go to a restaurant and there’s a busboy and a waiter, so on, maybe waiters are out-of-work actors with college degrees or you’re in the kitchen or you work at a theme park as a greeter, what kind of degree do you think most of those people have?” he said. “I would contrast that with people on the [MSNBC] set right now. I think all of us have college degrees and we’re all still employed. The folks in my industry are still employed, very little job loss in the finance industry, in part, because the stock market is doing so well.”

    • September 8, 2020 at 11:56 am

      “So this is a recession and a recovery that is hitting people very, very differently depending on upon their education, whether they’re of color and whether they’re a woman.”

    Oh dear… and I shared that link here a couple weeks ago that said the work had been done by a reputable company, or two in DC. 😦 My apologies 😳

    “The newly renovated White House Rose Garden is under repair less than three weeks after it’s official unveiling. The garden is experiencing “issues with water drainage” and “some minor complications with updated construction,” a source with knowledge of the garden troubles told CNN. New sod is also being laid down.

    First lady Melania Trump on August 22 hosted a private party to celebrate the redone Rose Garden, which the public was told had been completed after approximately three weeks of renovation.

    CNN has reached out to the White House for comment on when the Rose Garden will be able to properly function.”
