Jerry Springer said, "I'm sorry, but Trump's behavior is not just beneath the dignity of the Presidency...but that of any decent man."

Ben Shapiro said, "You do realize you are Jerry Springer, correct?"

Yeah, but Springer never tried to hurt anybody, either physically or emotionally. He was just willing to be a salacious clown for money & fame. It's a big difference.

Kay cannot get enough of that show about couples having their dream homes built. Since it's not my cup of tea, I find it a tad annoying, but then I remember the principle that we tend to watch our dreams. In that regard, it is touching that, despite her old age, she still likes to think about getting a dream home. Of course, I also remember mother often talking about how we would get a dream home one day - swimming pool, billiard room, a mansion.

On TV we watch our dreams ... I guess that means Pop still dreams of being a cowboy. And me? Leaving aside rape-pornography, which is obvious and doesn't require commentary, the principle still works for me, as I do dream about being a writer, an artist, despite my old age. I tend to home in on those shows & movies, about artists finding their voices, about artists struggling to put a work together, about artists talking about art. A couple of recent big ones, for instance, are the films "Youth" by Sorrentino and Jim Jarmusch's "Paterson". Though, there are not as many of these as I could use to fill up my TV-watching time. I guess reading books is a better way to follow that dream anyway.
