Woke feeling really trashed from yesterday's ordeal, but I rallied as the day grew on.
One of the things which raised my spirits was my phone call to BAM. He is home from his procedure, and things don't look as bad as might be. Robin gave me the technical name for the bladder problem, and BAM was very strong of voice, much his usual self. He goes in after the First of July for a look in his kidneys. I think of him, all the time.
I meant to reply to Bill H., but after losing a draft yesterday, I didn't get around to another attempt today. And I still owe Dolores a reply from way back. I must make room to view the President's attendance at the Air Force Academy Graduation Ceremony.
Son Jason made one of his regular afternoon visits now. I was able to share with him a little bit of news regarding BREAKING BAD: This season a new character, related to the local drug lord, who died in the last episode of Season Four, will make an important appearance. She will be played by the Scottish actresss . . . Laura Fraser. She is from Glasgow, and her father, an aspiring writer, is Alistair Fraser. One of her Movie breakthrough roles was the Shakespeaean adaptation: TITUS. She is married to a man named Karl Geary.

Tomorrow will be a big day in American politics, with both the Supreme Court decision on The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and the passing of a Congressional contempt citation against Attorney General Eric Holder expected. I shall be in front of the set, C-Span and the News Channels, most of the day.
SIGN OF THE APOCALYPSE: The largest city ever to go bankrupt in the United States, Stockton, California, started the proceedings today. Stockton, once a muscular port city at the far end of San Francisco Bay, handling much of the produce from the San Joaquin Valley, has been hard hit by the Great Recession, which has caused massive unemployment and falling real estate prices. The city was the setting of John Huston's "comeback" movie, FAT CITY, adapted from Leonard Gardner's novel about a couple of second rate boxers in the tenderloin. Susan Tyrrell, who won an Academy Award for her portrayal of the alcoholic heroine Ooma, in a sadly fitting coincidence, died last week.
