A semi-regular attempt to address some of life’s minutiae that might otherwise be overlooked…..
Recently I ran across an article about a film called Kuso. Perhaps…contrary to some well publicized opinions…mixed martial arts really IS artistic in comparison.
I won’t pretend to be a legal scholar, but all indications point to President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee…The Honorable Neil Gorsuch…being a conservative jurist and a Constitutional originalist, and for me that’s the whole ball of wax. It is THE #1 reason I voted for Donald Trump. I decided that I could handle whatever shortcomings he may have and deal with any disagreements I might have with his decisions as long as, by the end of whatever term he serves (four years?? eight years??) The Court is leaning in the right direction. It looks like he’s off to a good start.
Kudos to Kroger, who recently launched their ClickList grocery service. It’s like shopping on Amazon, only for fruit, cereal, & meat instead of books. You fill the virtual shopping cart at your own leisure wherever you happen to be surfing The Net, schedule a pickup time, call a number when you arrive at the store, and then someone brings your stuff out and puts it in your vehicle. You pay the person with your credit/debit card and boom…you’re on your way home without ever having to get out of your automobile. It’s not quite home delivery but it is close enough. As most citizens of The Manoverse know, I have used a wheelchair since childhood due to a birth defect called spina bifida. I’m not exactly old yet, but I’m not 20 years old anymore either, so getting in & out of my vehicle multiple times in a day is more challenging than it used to be. ClickList is a blessing for me, and I can see it being useful for elderly folks or young parents who would rather not take their small children shopping. I’d be remiss if I didn’t also recognize the valuable benefits to those with a healthy disdain for screaming babies, stupid people, & humanity in general. I am told that WalMart is also offering a similar service, though it hasn’t become available in my locale just yet. The thought of never having to go inside WalMart ever again fills my entire being with delight.
I find it fascinating that the same people who shout from the rooftops that “times change” and that we “need to be on the right side of history” when justifying arguments for certain social issues are the same folks who want to hearken back to the good ol’ days of Plymouth Rock & Ellis Island when trying to make the case for illegal immigration. You can’t have it both ways.
