09:58 – Barbara hit the gym this morning. We worked hard yesterday getting stuff moved up to the attic, installing shelves and tool racks in the garage, and so on. We had a nice sunny day for it, with a high around 70F. Today is to be the same.

I don’t understand why all the news outlets are wasting so much space on the primary caucuses and elections. It should be clear to anyone by now that voters are utterly fed-up with more politics-as-usual. They’re ready to throw out the baby, the bathwater, and the tub itself. How else could anyone explain how well lunatic-fringe psychopath demagogues like Trump and Saunders are doing? The only thing they have going for them is that they’re not more-of-the-same, or at least they claim not to be. But with the possible exception of Cruz, not one of them has a shred of integrity. Cruz may be different. I believe that he’s a man of his convictions, unafraid to stand up and speak for them no matter how popular or unpopular they may be with the electorate or the party hierarchy. Unfortunately, I don’t share his convictions on many issues. But at least I believe that he means exactly what he says, which is refreshing for any politician.
