The Week Ahead

Thursday is a rerun of the 2020 debates between Biden and Trump but with updated rules - no audience, mic shut off when it's not the person's turn to speak (as if that will stop Trump) - and a few other new rules - as these two old guys face-off like the 'battle of the octogenarians'.

Trump's mental acuity has declined significantly since 2020 ... most of the time seeming to babble on ... as The Don tries to keep his subordinates (supporters) under his control - in a world where Trumpism (authoritarianism) is frowned on by those who understand how governments should work for the people.

Biden is working very hard to show that his mind and body are fit but his arthritis makes him appear older than he is or maybe that's the norm for people my age.

I am among the lucky ones - which I attribute to my alien encounter - still having nothing wrong. I just did my annual medical exams - all good as doctors laugh and say, "See you next year".

Speaking of alien (UFO) encounters - tomorrow (June 24, 1947) - marks the 77th anniversary of the Kenneth Arnold UFO Sighting over Washington State. Why is this important? Weeks before the Roswell crash - this was the first post-World War II sighting in the United States ushering in human-extraterrestrial storylines and the modern Age of Technology.

Back to the 2024 election ... in conclusion there are no functional choice including the candidate with the worm in his head who will soon drop out.

There will be primaries and 'God knows what else' in the four and a half months until the November election - and whatever Trump creates after he loses. He is not just fighting for power and money - he's fighting to hold onto everything dear to him and stay out of jail.

Moving on to the many exciting sports this summer - the Boston Celtics won the NBA championships last week. In the race for the Stanley Cup - the Florida Panthers are the favorites. Baseball is everywhere from major leagues to little leagues along with soccer, golf, tennis, pickleball, and so many other summer sports.

It's the Olympic trials that is capturing the attention of many people who look forward to the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris. I've been watching the tryouts as time permits - my favorites - gymnastics and swimming. The US is building amazing teams and you can't help but embrace the enthusiasm of the athletes.

Climate - The heat dome that covered much of the country last week will subside this week - but the summer has just begun so expect a warming planet to relentlessly reminding us that it will no longer be sustainable in the near future. Besides, the health issues related to extreme heat, there are also the emotional problems that trigger emotions. People at their personal 'boiling point' will get angry and violent. Be careful.

This takes us to crimes - the Supreme Court will soon reveal its decision on whether or not Trump can be tried for the January 6 attempt to overthrow the government. They stretched the timing out as long as they could so he wouldn't be tried before the November election. They should rule against him - while achieving their goal to push the trial into next year on the assumption Trump will be elected and the case will go away - as well as his cohorts in many cases against him will go free.

Also delayed are Georgia and Florida cases moving into next year if ever. After Trump lost in New York City - the other cases didn't seem quite so important. It will be interesting to hear his sentencing (limitations) in a few weeks. As I wrote at the beginning of the year - Trump spends the rest of his life in litigation of one kind or another - but that's always been his pattern.

Here in New York City - this is Pride Week - culminating with the Pride March next Sunday.

Getting on with your life and mine ... Stay cool ... hydrated ... and you know the rest.
