What WAS inspiring however, was to be with my entire extended family over the weekend for my neice Meaghan's wedding to her man Casey. Not pictured below is The Hammer, who was there in all his splendor with his lovely wife.

As for the election, it is nearly (thank God) upon us, and the polling seems pretty set that Hillary will be our next President. I was told that the Establishment created Trump. I was told that Trump didn't need the Establishment to win. I was told that he would self fund. I was told that he would win Blue States. I was told that he would moderate his behavior. I was told he would grow the party. Now I am told that it is my fault that he is losing.
So be it. I will remain in the opposition, where I've been for eight years, with my unfashionable right of center ideas and policy preferences that seem quaint now that so many of them have been utterly forgotten by the GOP nominee and his followers. The interesting question is what is to become of the Republican Party, and I don't have a good answer. I'm sure many of you do.
I'm in San Diego for a few days--standard, beautiful southern CA weather, a great hotel (gym, free breakfast, free interenet, downtown) before red-eyeing back East Thursday night. I am told we had frost back in Easton last night, so my time of year is upon us. Nothing makes me happier than lighting candles on the dinner table because it is dark and cold outside.
Have a great day.
