Bush 41’s death is a good excuse to compare what he represented and what we’ve got today.  Decency, patriotism, courage, humanity – versus – (fill in the blanks).

Does it mean anything that most of the people on the obituaries page are younger than I am?

If money is the root of all evil in American politics, what are the chances that it will not continue to be that way?

In reporting college results in the Chronicle sports section they refuse to make it clear whether the teams are male or female.  Must be some misguided attempt to demonstrate that they don’t engage in gender discrimination. 

The Dems are wasting no time in coming out of the woodwork for 2020.  Warren, Harris, Biden?  Yes, yes, yes.  Bloomberg, O’Rourke, Sharrod Brown?  Good possibilities.  And many more.

Will the Giants have a winning season in 2019?  Hope springs eternal in the springtime, but I wouldn’t bet on it.

As it stands, for the Brits Brexit is not a sure thing.  Will they, should they vote again?  From here it looks like that would be a good idea.  But here is not there, so who knows what’ll happen?

A trade war with China (or anyone else) is a lose-lose proposition.  Why, then, do so many people support it?  I don’t have an answer.

Is there a common thread for all this?  “Uncertainty” is the leading candidate.  In the fullness of time, all be revealed.  Maybe!
