A Note from Me (Jun 11, 2021)

Dear friends: So sorry to have missed you last week (dummy-reading-duty called!), but I hope everyone had an enjoyable long weekend/Memorial Day holiday. One of your number took perplexing exception to something anodyne I wrote here referencing Kamala Harris; I think our Vice President is in all ways wonderful, and...
