The Monday Morning Teaser

I spent my week off on an island with 300 Unitarians and a featured speaker from NASA, so several NASA tidbits will be sprinkled through the weekly summary, closing with the Exoplanet Travel Bureau.

Several people who read this blog have noticed that I immerse myself in the news each week and yet don’t seem to be depressed, so they imagine I must have some secret reason to believe everything eventually turns out OK. Unfortunately, I had no rose-colored crystal ball to show them. (In my considered opinion, things might turn out OK or they might not. The bill for that precious insight is in the mail.) But I will share what keeps me going — it’s also not drugs — in the featured post “Getting Through This”. It should be out around 10 or so EDT.

Before that, I’ll continue the feature I started last time with three more misunderstood things: healthcare costs, the “Biblical” view on abortion, and sanctuary cities. That should be out between 8 and 9.

The obvious thing to cover in the weekly summary is Trump Jr.’s attempt to collude with the Russian government in helping his father become president. Also, where the Senate is on ObamaCare repeal, why the proposed NASA budget cuts are more sinister than the (comparatively small) top-line cut would imply, the giant new iceberg, and a few other things. Let’s predict that for 11 or 12.

    I used to vacation as a teen at Camp Unistar on an island in Cass Lake, MN. I don’t know if that is where you were vacationing, but thanks for bringing a smile of nostalgia to my face.
