Impeachment 

1) The aid to Ukraine was given and Biden's son wasn't investigated. Suggesting, in fact, the opposite of a quid pro quo.

2) Even had there been something resembling a quid pro quo. Is what Trump wanted "bad"? To investigate corruption? Let's put it another way, if he had done the same to Mitch McConnell's son would the Democrats care? The answer is no.

3) Even if what Trump did was "bad," by framing it around investigating a political rival - does it amount to an impeachable offense? IE does the punishment fit the crime? I imagine a resounding "no."

4) Does Biden's son being compromised stop anyone from voting for Biden? I don't think so.
Standford Students Protest Ben Shapiro Putting Them At Risk

Their rhetoric suggests they are cowards, but dig a layer deeper and the truth is they're tyrants.

TV: Watchmen S1 E4

Impression: show getting too big in scope too fast and will implode under the weight of its own lofty themes. Like other Lindelof shows, from what I hear.

UPDATE: And Adrian Vite is going to fling himself into space and eventually land on Lady Trillionaire's clock, right?

Evidence of my first thesis.

Book: Adventures in the Screentrade by William Goldman

Should of read this years ago, although I imagine I understand it better now.

TV: Watchmen Ep 2-3

My new favorite show.
Popcorn Please

Maybe I'm a tad evil, but I'm somewhat enjoying the "Ok Boomer" phenomenon, especially as I am neither a Boomer or a Millennial. Is it too mean to think both groups deserve the headaches they are giving each other?

Clear Thoughts

After reading about her tax plan, hell would need to freeze over before I voted for Elizabeth Warren.

ABC reporters knew about Jeffery Epstein 3 years ago and the story got squashed. Come on! I don't want to believe in conspiracies, but this one is getting preposterous. The conservative twitter universe is right to point out the media rushed to give voice to Christine Blasey Ford and any woman who would make up total BS about Kavanaugh, and yet quashed this story because it wasn't juicy enough!

TV: Watchmen - Pilot

Vaulted to my favorite show on TV immediately although I suppose that is not saying much.

Film: Dolemite Is My Name

One of the better movies about both the creative process and the business of being an artist. I prefer this to The Disaster Artist, I think. And that's high praise.
This Strikes Me As An Interesting Development

The Daytime Emmy's eliminate gender distinction in giving out Young Actor and Young Actress awards, and instead replace it with Outstanding Young Performer.

If I'm reading this correctly, it means there will be one award given per year instead of two.

Might be worth seeing where this goes, because because if there's one thing Hollywood folks enjoy more than being on the cutting edge of wokeness, it would be giving themselves awards.

When they figure out one is less than two, I imagine some people will be miffed.

Stay tuned.
