  1. If she happens to read the blog – May God bless and keep you, Harris, and may your mother rest in heavenly peace.

  2. I’ve completed Megyn Kelly’s Settle for More on Audible. The Roger Ailes harassment chapter was the penultimate one. It didn’t have the happy ending I thought I saw Megyn relay in her MediaBuzz interview. What I thought was a happy ending was really a happy middle. Then, Gretchen’s lawsuit came along.

    The Trump chapters were depressing–my heart ached for her–but at least that ended on a high note.

      • Up to 29 likes. A few more hate tweets came my way, but a few supportive tweets balanced them out. Also, two people asked if Megyn read the audiobook. I told them yes, but did not chide them for missing the “Audible” part of the tweet.

        ADDENDUM: Like #30 was Joe Concha.

        • Yup. I read it. Megyn and I are the same age and I couldn’t believe how scarily similar our family dynamics were growing up and the vivid description she used of life as a child/teen in the 70s and 80s. Overall, good read. I have an interview with her going up on The Hill later this week.

  3. The media’s and internet commentator’s constant drumbeat against Trump has become irrelevant other than hardening the hate of detractors and stiffening the spine of supporters. TUNE IN, TURN OFF, FLIP THE BIRD.

  4. Madonna, “My 11-year-old son can speak eloquently about Malcolm X and Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela and James Baldwin. My daughter Mercy plays the piano and can talk to you about Nina Simone. I’m really proud of that.”
    Wouldn’t a kid be better off speaking eloquently about baseball stats and powers of superheroes? Maybe not, maybe both will grow up to be John Harwood.

    • With her interest in Kabala, you’d think a knowlege of the Torah and the Talmud would be important to her.

    • cognitive development of students that learn to read music and rhythmic dictation are generally considered the most effective brain exercises available. repeated studies show statistical significance.

      • Began learning to read and play music in the 4th grade. Elkhart, Indiana, at the time was the self-proclaimed “band instrument capital of the world” with companies like Conn and Selmer headquartered there. They financed a municipal orchestra, and a city-wide music coordinator for the schools as well as the school programs themselves. I was lucky to have grown up in that era as most of the production moved to Japan by the time I was out of school. http://www.conn-selmer.com/en-us/about/history/

        • proving my point. Nix learned drums and smoke writing undoubtedly. not to mention scalping and all those other important cultural remnants. gotta do the brain push ups or u r a weenie.

  5. Had to post something to get ready for great Johnny$ holiday radio “blasts from the past” stuff like The Nick Shurn Matter!
