The Great Unraveling

The unraveling of the Trump regime continues apace, and reporters aren't even disguising their pleasure. Twenty-seven days was all it took.

Meanwhile, this most Ithacan of Ithaca stories took place yesterday. Only in Ithaca could our boy mayor marry a couple during a sit-in at a Congressman's local office.

And tonight I'm on this agenda down at Greenstar for the first of many such scheduled meet ups:
