Spent my morning on Email, especially a reply to a note from Son Jason's old friend, and a tardy reaction to the latest revision of Wayne the K.'s screenplay.
The plumbers came a little after noon. They thought some electrical element was amiss. I reminded them of the unleveled bathtub. They apologized, said they would return -- but did not. I phoned Monica about the matter and asked her again about the handrails for the bathroom. She said that she would be back to me by weeks end.
I had a shower, trimmed off my beard further, and went to have my hair cut by "The Lady from Taiwan." She was off at the Macy's Post Office, but set to work on me upon her return. She did, as always, a good job, but pointed out to me that, at my advanced age, I'm going bald. Oh, well . . . .
By the time I was back at the apartment, returns from the Primary Elections were beginning to trickle in. It did not take long for a clear trend in Wisconsin toward the Republicans to develop. Our political apparatus continues to lurch toward the Right -- and the results will terrible . . . Apocalyptic.
SIGN OF THE APOCALYPSE: Scott Walker retained his Governorship in Wisconsin by at least seven points, and Republicans around the Country hailed the event as a triumph over the evil Unions and "other Special Interests." [Read, people have lost the lottery of Capitalism.] Almost so sinister, Bill Clinton came out (ambiguously) favoring tax cuts for the 1%. Late in the evening, it was revealed that the Clinton-backed candidate for a New Jersey House seat had defeated the Obama-backed incumbent. What is charming Billy up to? [He speaks fondly of the idea that his wife, once she has rested from her labors, will once more seek greater Public Service.] Former Democratic Governor of Pennsylvania, Ed Rendel, is openly criticizing President Obama. I take it, they think it's time to "send in the clowns."
A huge storm brewing.
