There’s a military dispute beween Pakistan and India, first since 1970. I remember the latter very well, couldn’t forget it if I lived another 80 yeares. You see in the late 1960s I wrote a number of short stories. Out of Order took place in a bar. I hinted at its victional future by reporting a war betwen India and Pakistan! Why India and Pakistan? because I w1anted the story’s time tobe rediculous, improbable: clearly fiction. Next thin I know, they’re at war! Well, here we go again.

“Harris was seated on stage at MoveOn’s “Big Ideas” event, when the male protester casually walked up to her and grabbed the microphone out of her hand.” Yahoo article.
I will never forget Ivan Illich speaking from the stage at Fordam University in NY. He was speaking into a mike, hand-held. He brandished the mike, waved it at us, smacked it a few 1times. “Don’t you see that I’m oppressing you” Yes! Yes, I cheered. Mikes are anti-democratic unless everyone has one. And if everyone has one then little can get heard.
Did the audience get it? No. Not at all. Not that I could tell.

Yahoo sports news had a sexy photo this morning of a basketball girlfriend displaying the bottom of her tits: not the –yawn– tops! Then suddenly I recall where I’d seen that before: late 1970s, Dirty Dick’s bar, Long Beach LI. Long Beach Road T’s against Shore Rd,
Dirty Dick’s widow runs the joins. Her bartending is assisted by her two sons: Dick (junior) is the elder. The younger brother, a good looking cuss, has a trohy wife. Cute girl, cute outfits: and it was she who displayed boob bottoms firstbin my experience.
Pardon the low vision typos, I’ll fix if I can: meantime, don’t worry about it, I don’t.
