Cubs won. Beat the Sox, 3-1. In doing so, they avoided being swept by the Sox in their own house. BFD. There are no glimmers. There is no hope.
#3 Son and I went to see Blue Man Group, last night, at the Briar Street Theater. It was, as always, brilliantly done. It is the second time that he and I have attended live theater in the city, together. It's nice.
Today is our Country's birthday. It's rather hard to believe that the Bi-Centennial celebrations I remember so well were actually 35 years ago.
The rearview mirror of history has a tendency to distill the events of the past - compact and edit to efficiency - and in doing so, History fails to tell the whole story. If you read the story - all the many stories - about the birth of this Nation, you would be forgiven if you wondered how on earth it all happened. It was close - it could just as easily never happened at all. We're lucky.
