Great Book Salon today, Foodopoly. Dday and KagroX are Virtually Speaking this evening. Movie Night Monday is The Revolutionary Optimists. See you here and there.

As for the listings: Jeb Bush is exceptionally busy selling his book and starting up his campaign for president, as if we haven’t had more than enough from the Bush clan lo these many years. I wish there were saints to preserve us.

Rabbit’s gonna give you tough love.

A lot of the same old, same old on today (surprise!) and also Gene Sperling many times, but even though Bob Woodward does show up in a roundtable, he isn’t matched up with Sperling.

Hi, just firing up the Pancake-omatic here so I can make you breakfast (Marion deserves a day off every now and then, no?). Can someone set the table?

Codebreaker is Movie Night Monday’s offering, the story of Alan Turing. He was a giant of a mind and it’s shocking that he was driven to suicide at the relatively young age of 41 just because he was gay. He was frank about his sexuality, all but negating the concern that that information could be used as blackmail against him; nevertheless he underwent chemical castration (good god). I can’t begin to imagine what we as a society lost because of of this idiotic prejudice. We owe him so much.
