Wednesday and Change

“Everything in life is unusual until you get accustomed to it.”

The Marvelous Land of Oz
American novelist, L. Frank Baum, was born on this day in 1856 (died 1919).

I’ve written recently about changes I’m trying to make. Some of them I’m getting used to.

Some of them I’ve not quite mastered.

As I wrote on Monday, I’m daily going through my to-do list and prioritizing.

Some days, like yesterday for example, that means I don’t post here.

I have some daily “must do” items. Then there are some “should do” items.
Moving down on the list we have the “want to do” items.

I will never get to them all.

Feel free to read the links below at your leisure. And hit the tip jar on the way out.

A ‘Never Again Trump’ Guide to Voting Trump
Scott Moorefield, TownHall
For a host of reasons, all of which I’ve laid out in excruciating detail both on Twitter/X and my past Townhall columns, Donald Trump wasn’t my choice to become the Republican Party’s presidential nominee. I considered myself a “Never Again Trumper.” Though I happily voted for him twice, I felt strongly that Ron DeSantis was the better option this cycle. Yet, for better or for worse, despite the efforts of all of us who wanted an alternative, here we are, with Trump as the Republican presidential nominee for a third election in a row.
