On way back north woman asked me if she was going toward the Rock. I said, You Couldn't Prove It By Me Today

Still not watching News but Saw OJ is to be Paroled

I remember that he drove home that day on 26th Street after seeing Nicole and Ron for the last time, 26th street being behind the house I was in during the 70s--familiar terrain. I even knew Rockingham. Now, I am horrified of betting. Betting is what caused that house to be sold a couple of years ago as a $5,100,000 teardown--the owner since the mid 80s having done complicated betting at Santa Anita to the tune of a $100,000,000 loss, said the Hollywood papers.
So OJ has been in Lovelock. On 3 June 1998 Lovelock was a great place to replace a dragging muffler and get us back on the road to Auburn, California. Lovelock was a great place. And when you are in the lead with the Bronco the other driving behind can see something dragging . . . .
So now I am open for bets. How long? 2 weeks? 3 weeks? before OJ is in the news again, having (his lawyers will argue) NOT NOT NOT violated his parole by this or that or the more serious other activity?

I knew then and certainly was confirmed later with news about the eye

When one is older than John McCain one does not make jokes lightly about other people's health. But I knew something was seriously wrong in June and in July (however cruel it sounded) knew that what was leaking out of his eye was not merely mucous and a little blood. After all McCain has gone through--well, he should have thought about what was best for him and his family at the last election. Wind me up and point me in the right direction, we say. Up, Old Horse, we say.

Washington Post in early June:
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) was the last senator to question former FBI director James B. Comey at Thursday's Senate Intelligence Committee hearing. Nearing the end of more than 2½ hours of questioning, McCain focused his line on two FBI inquiries: the 2016 investigation of Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server as secretary of state and the 2017 investigation of Russian interference in the presidential election.
But several of his questions confused viewers, and seemingly Comey himself, and he occasionally was incoherent. He referred to “President Comey,” and at times looked confused and frustrated with Comey's answers. Viewers clearly thought it was notable; Twitter announced it was the most-tweeted moment of the hearing
