Take care to get what you like or you will be forced to like what you get.
    —     George Bernard Shaw
[To all you Independents and “conservative” Democrats who want to send a “message” to President Biden by voting for Republicans in the November mid-terms, remember in doing so, you are voting against supporting the middle-class worker, against voting rights, against national health care, against personal privacy and against reducing climate change.  If you are “okay” with the Republican stand on all of those issues / positions – fine.  Vote your conscious.  Otherwise, I suggest you find and support EVERY Democrat at your local, state and national level – and vote for them.  Elections have consequences.    —    kmab]

Life is no brief candle to me.  It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got a hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.
   ―    George Bernard Shaw
[Although I grew up a Warriors and Celtics fan and therefor detested all things “Lakers”,  I have never really been able to “hate on” any of the specific Laker players.  To be honest, except when they were playing my two teams, I usually looked forward to watching the Lakers – from Chamberlain and “the Streak”, through Kareem / Magic and “Showtime”, and on down through Shaq and Kobe.  Due to his competitive nature, I feel Kobe was never able to find rest in this life.  Even before fully retiring from the game he was transitioning his brand and his businesses in order to be “the best” at those, too.  Sometimes that is the price you must pay to be the very best at your profession.  I hope he can find that rest now.  But I bet he’s trying to get a one-on-one going with Wilt…
