YES, EXACTLY

Lawrence Tribe tweets:

“When even Erdogan is ahead of #MoscowMitch in honoring the results of our presidential election, we’ve gotta ask: where do McConnell’s real loyalties lie?

STATE OF THE TRUMP

“Even his aberrations have aberrations,” a friend writes me about post-COVID Donald.

Another friend, who’s received steroid treatments for a virus, tells me it took months for their effects to wear off.

NO GRATITUDE

Tweet from the Sunrise Movement:

“Perhaps moderate Democrats in the House should stop blaming the Movements for Black Lives, youth movements, and progressives for their losses, when it is in fact us who delivered the margin of victory to defeat Trump.

“Young people of color literally just saved democracy.”

TO KEEP TRUMP CALM

Maybe they should agree to let him stay in residence at the White House, the madman in the attic a la Jane Eyre.

I LAUGHED LIKE IT WAS 1979

Ronald Koatz was a friend of mine at Columbia–the nicest guy you can imagine. Instead of “Joel,” he liked to call me “Noël,” which always used to amuse me. Well, I’ve been going through hundreds of letters and cards I kept in two bellows folders, sorting them into individual file folders by name, subject, etc.

When today I came across a communique addressed to good old “Noël,” I cracked up. A friend happened to call, and I told him about it, and he laughed, too.

Not entirely sure why, but it’s absurdly funny.

UNEASY LAUGHTER FROM TRUMP’S STAFF OF ENABLERS

as he spouts today–as he does every day–delusional nonsense, claiming his rally crowds are unlike anything seen in the history of the world.

DISPATCHES FROM A TALLULAH TRAIN WRECK

Ron Weekes, who sells rare books and autographs in East Aurora, New York, got in touch recently re: two letters he is selling written by a cast member in Talulah’s ill-starred Antony and Cleopatra in 1937. The author is a “Bob,” who we think might be Robert Williamson, who payed Mardian, writing to a “Dave” in New York.

The letters are very campy and very dishy about the show. Tallulah herself appends a “Hi Dave” to one of them.

An extensive tour was originally planned until the producers curtailed the whole thing and fast-tracked it into New York.

“I will be home in two weeks – we open in New York November 10 – we play Columbus,Indianapolis & Cincinnati then home. Although I’m terribly thrilled that I am going to see you and mother and everyone I don’t think that the play is in any condition to go into New York yet. We’ve had quite bad notices and it’s just not right. I’m frightened of it. But I guess the management know what it is doing. I sincerely hope so.”

Management was cutting its losses.

NO, MARCO RUBIO

the truth is, no one believes more devoutly in socialism–but only for the wealthy–than you, your puppeteer Mitch McConnell, and in fact the entire Republican Congressional caucus.

You can keep flogging that dead horse all you want, but the truth is that young voters are not spooked by that socialist label and understand how socialized our society and economy is (mostly for the wealthy, a little bit for everybody else.)
