This Has Nothing To Do With Alan Greenspan | - Part 2

Upper Missouri River Breaks

We’ve been quite busy over the last month, hence the cessation of anything resembling regular posting of anything at this blog. The photos below are from our latest adventure floating the Upper Missouri River Breaks, something that we’ve been looking forward to all summer and that can now be highly recommended.

Brooks on Rose on Trump

When NY Times columnist David Brooks last appeared on Charlie Rose he said he had to get outside the New York – Washington bubble in order to understand the appeal of Republican Nominee for President, Donald Trump. In this return visit, he shares what he’s learned.

Lots of interesting stuff here – Hillbilly Elegy, “word-people” and those who aren’t, Trump’s extremely strong “short-burst” sentences, etc.

Olympic Golf Course Overrun by R.O.U.S.

Fans of the movie Princess Bride will no doubt recall the unusually large fire swamp dwellers known as R.O.U.S. when seeing what golfers are dealing with at the Rio Olympics.

Better than playing alongside alligators, I would think…

It’s nearly impossible to avoid the goings-on at the Republican National Convention, but I’ve found that it’s much more palatable to only get your RNC news from comedians.

Good point about the Melania Trump speech/plagiarism – “this is a truly astonishing display of incompetence – they ripped off a passage about the value of hard work”.

Generational Overlap

Oh geez … nothing in the headlines (e.g., coup attempts, terrorist attacks, police shootings) to keep the Republican Convention from getting maximum coverage in the news today.

How about generational overlap, courtesy of this item at the Wall Street Journal?

FWIW – I’m in that 5-year overlap – never felt comfortable being called a baby boomer and even less so for Gen X – didn’t know that a big overlap was the exception, not the rule.
