Saturday is RBC day at our house

I realize that I’m now a week behind in “Wednesday Next President” blogging and I think I missed two Fridays worth of Grandkids blogging. I blame the media. There’s been too much to take in, not leaving enough time to regurgitate it here, let alone do self-indulgent things like fill out future online family albums and pass that activity off as a blog post.

In fairness, it was a busy weekend followed by a short week. We did get some things done. I’m very pleased to report that our household is now in possession of a copy Scotty’s book. It’s not my turn to read it yet.  Some things are worth waiting for.

Of course, the main thing that’s going on is that it’s RBC day. The rules and by-laws committee of the DNC are meeting to decide on what’s to be done about MI and FL. And there will be a protest outside by Clintonistas and friends. Today I’m looking around for some good live blogging of the meeting. I know it’s going to be on C-Span soon and I believe Mr. Yenta has it set to record. I’m going to be checking in and out but since I have to go do errands it would be great to find a blog where you can get a synopsis every so often. One thing that’s certain is that there will not be a whole lot of other people in the produce aisle who’ll be anxious to go home and get  up to speed on what’s happening with the Rules Committee.  Once in a while it occurs to me how few normal people think much about the things I obsess about. You, too. If you were a normal person you wouldn’t be reading this. Might as well face it now.

One other really important thing did happen this week and I’m very late in mentioning it. Jon Swift is back! Blogtopia celebrates! We missed his writing and we were worried about him.  He is, in fact, Not Dead. He claims there’s no book deal. I don’t understand it. If not a book, at least some magazine should be paying him for his stuff. He’s better than a lot writers with good gigs. If you’ve never read him you’re in luck. He’s not only back but you can enjoy his archives for quite a while before running out of reading material.
