Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,
Yesterday as I worked the wind rose and the temperature dropped. We have gray skies today as we await Nicole. She is forecast to be a category 1 hurricane when she arrives in Florida, but will probably drop back into tropical stormdom by the time she reaches my area. In the meantime, Franklin, Penelope, and I are snug in our Little House On The Swamp.

Penelope keeps watch.
Work is pretty quiet this month. It will be busier for me during December when I undertake some additional training.
I'm very, very happy that the Red Wave did not occur. Some races are too close for comfort. We expect a Senate run-off election in December between Senator/Rev. Raphael Warnock and Herschel Walker. It's a situation that's very difficult for me to understand. You have a choice between an upstanding guy and a known liar and hypocrite. I listened to a short podcast in which a woman said of the former football player, I believe in him. I think it's safe to say she believes trump won the last election as well.
But beliefs are not facts.
As President Obama pointed out, Some of you may not remember, but Herschel Walker was a heck of a football player. Does that make him the best person to represent you? Let's say you're at the airport and you see Walker and you say, Hey, there's Herschel, Heisman winner. Let's have him fly the plane.
The good news is that we have reason to believe that Warnock can win in December. The Democrats in Georgia must remain vigilant, however. No slacking off, folks!
I'm especially pleased with the outcome of the Senate race in Pennsylvania. Go, John Fetterman! Go straight to Washington, D.C., to be sworn in!
I noticed Fetterman during the 2020 election because he offered some commentary on MSNBC. He's a sharp, caring guy. A stroke hasn't stopped him. Again, however, a vote for Mehmet Oz is beyond my comprehension. It was a close race. The people of Pennsylvania could choose between the good guy who is their Lt. Governor and was mayor of one of their cities or they could choose a guy from another state who dispenses quackery on TV. Go figure.
MSNBC dispensed some good news when they relayed the probable end of Lauren Boebert's reign of terror in the House (not that they put in those words), but Nicole Wallace talked about her dad telling her that Boebert's opponent, Adam Frisch, is a great guy. So Adam Frisch is a name to watch. Boebert will probably shoot up her neighborhood in dismay when the race is final and she's the loser.
Joy Reid also pointed out that Democrats who did well in their House races tended to run on President Biden's infrastructure bill.
That's good news!
For today, I want to focus on the good. Soon I'll be bemoaning Ron DeSantis vs. Donald Trump. That will make me crazy!
I hope you had some happy outcomes in your state.
Infinities of love,
