The photographer Mark Tucker reported today that "the estimated security cost for Melania Trump living 200 miles away from Donald Trump is double the annual budget for the National Endowment for the Arts."

I can't escape it.  It won't leave me alone.  Nothing will, it seems.  I must concentrate on something like stamp collecting or rebuilding old cars.  Become obsessed with it to the extent that there is nothing else.

Or maybe I'll take up whittling.

Everybody needs something (link).

I acted heroically last night.  I didn't bid on a Leica Monochrom camera that was well-priced.  Disciplined.  Like an Olympic athlete.

Still. . . I can't help wondering what The Donald will do today.


  1. Ah ... a new post I can finally relate to.


  2. Oh God. Not the Love Doll Part. I just looked that link. I did see the Lars movie. And hey - whatever floats your boat. But last thing I need is another Love "Doll".

  3. Hmm. . . I was wondering which part you could relate to. Still am, really. I have to go to Japan. Seems like they are world leaders in many, many things.
