Okay, I'm now "all in" with Trump: Donald Trump just unveiled a huge tax break for stay-at-home moms and Donald Trump commits to defunding abortion. Neither one helps me personally--the tax break applies only to people with kids under age 13, and I'm not a fetus--but he's at least saying the right things.

I was just talking with a friend of mine the other day, saying we need a new service club in town, one that revolves around drinking, manly talk, and, if we get around to it, service. The idea: Drink and talk first, then see what service projects or fundraising might present themselves, but if they don't, they don't. At least we will have drank well with men, in a non-PC environment . . . no small thing in today's world. It turns out there's a similar movement afoot: Proud Boy Clubs. They sound great, though the requirements (including a tattoo) make it impossible for me to open a local chapter.

Brutal Detroit Lions game yesterday. The referees were out of control: 29 penalties. I don't have the patience to sit through an entire football game anyway, unless I'm drinking. I stopped watching this one midway through the 2nd quarter and merely checked back in sporadically.
