The Djokovic Default

Happy Labor Day from the States (SoCal for you American honks). Currently, our weather temps remain high as fires continue to engulf the countryside, wildlife and human civilization (which sounds so ironic at this point: human civilization -- ha ha). Not good. So how about this tournament, the second major of 2020, a year that's …

2020 Wimbledon, etc.

The Stimulus Bill: Fuck You, Bill. https://twitter.com/mudfleas/status/1245092363439083526 But she'll get a check for $1200 in May or June, so she's good. The Trumplicans are an absolute shit show.

Cincinnati Landscape

I have never been to Cincinnati. Various images of the city look beautiful, though some of these, found online, perhaps, are well-lighted, angled just so. I prefer my coastal, desert and mountainous landscape, but Cincy looks like a fine city with certain amounts of character and charm. The Masters 1000 tennis tournament they host usually …
