As if all this wasn’t bad enough…Rest In Peace Eddie Van Halen :


Even that song will not lift my spirits, when we have the Madness of King Donnie Covid to face.

One last thought,

This is an open thread.

Stay safe…

    I think it’s going to be a busy news day, y’all take it easy.

  2. RonStill4Hills says:

    I got my acknowledgement about ten minutes ago. My ballot has been accepted and counted.
    I have help save the world, I can go back to bed.

      Good work!

    • dakinikat says:

      yay! and in a good state to vote blue too!!!

    • Enheduanna says:

      Ron, my ballot shows accepted on Oct. 2, but nothing about counted yet. I was checking the site. Do they send a notice when it’s counted?

      • RonStill4Hills says:

        We signed up for something called BallotTrax Vote Alerts. They sent a text and voice mail.

        For questions they posted this number 770)443-7503.

        We are Paulding County, I don’t know if that is different from anywhere else.

        We also dropped off our ballots and the court house where we usually do early voting.

        We did not trust the Post Office.

        • Enheduanna says:

          Oh wow I’m in deepest southeast Cobb near the Paulding line. I also drove my ballot to a ballot box. Thank you for the information – I will definitely check it out! They did say my ballot was “accepted” and not rejected.

      • Although I’ve lived in Canada for 48 years, I vote in Georgia’s 5th District. (Yes, it was a great honour to vote for John Lewis!) This year, I sent both my ballot request, and my completed ballot by Express Post so I could track its arrival. My ballot arrived at its destination on Monday, but now it’s in a black hole because I have no way of knowing if it has been accepted and counted. I tried the link and it went nowhere. Any other ideas?

    • Sweet Sue says:

      Good for you. I’m still waiting for mine.

    • NW Luna says:

      That’s great! I’m itching to get my ballot, even though we’re in a blue state.

  3. Enheduanna says:

    JJ – you have given me a real boost with the tweet from Jon Cooper about Dump being advised to resign. He’s probably too stupid and vain to do it, but even Junior was worried about him last night so maybe they’re staging an intervention. He hasn’t poked his head out since Monday.

    Here’s a tweet I liked from Preet Bharara:

    Preet Bharara (@PreetBharara) Tweeted:
    I like a president who is not Patient Zero. Or Individual 1.

    • Enheduanna says:

      Hmm my effort to post that tweet didn’t work either.

      Trying one more (sorry for the flood of comments):

      Got that from commentators at TPM. Hilarious – apparently the raccoons are taking over the WH. Really. Raccoons.

    Nobel Prize in chemistry awarded to two women

    A pair of scientists — Jennifer A. Doudna, a biochemist at the University of California at Berkeley, and Emmanuelle Charpentier, a French microbiologist — won the 2020 Nobel Prize in chemistry Wednesday for their work developing a revolutionary gene-editing tool that can change the DNA of plants and animals with extraordinary precision. The technique, called CRISPR -Cas9, is already being used as a cancer therapy and to cure inherited diseases.

    “This year’s prize is about rewriting the code of life,” said Goran K. Hansson, secretary general of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.

    This was the first time two women jointly won a Nobel in chemistry. “I wish that this will provide a positive message, specifically, to young girls who would like to follow the path of science,” Charpentier told reporters Wednesday morning.

    Watching the debate. VP Pence has Covid-red eyes. I would not be surprised if he has it.
