Here’s a Reuters’ pic from Central Park. The sculpture is by French artist James Colomina.
To the surprise of no one but idiots and partisans, the first test of abortion rights has gone overwhelmingly in favor of preserving the procedure. I have no idea if other states will follow Kansas’ lead, but it wouldn’t surprise me.
The Saudi-backed golf league has ruined my interest in the last pro sport I’ve followed. I wonder what the hosts’ aim is. If it’s positive publicity for the Kingdom, it doesn’t seem to be working. Could it possibly be about money, as if the Sheiks don’t have enough? Worst of all, I’m disappointed Trump backs it.
I shoulda known Manchin would revert to his high roller ways. I wonder what passed under the table to get him to play.
Given the heat advisory, I didn’t expect much business today at the floating book shop, especially since I put out only a third of the wares. I was pleasantly surprised. Two customers bought in bulk, and several others purchased single items. My thanks to all, and to the gentleman who donated about 50 books, a great mix of fiction and non, hardcover and paperback. Here’s most of what sold: Rigged: How the Media, Big Tech, and the Democrats Seized Our Elections by Mollie Ziegler Hemingway; Ani’s Raw Food Kitchen: Easy, Delectable Living Foods Recipes by Ani Phyo; The Know-It-All: One Man’s Humble Quest to Become the Smartest Person in the World by A. J. Jacobs; Cristo, a religious book in Spanish; Marker by Robin Cook; Serpentine by Jonathan Kellerman; Chaos by Patricia Cornwell; Fear of the Dark by Walter Mosley; The Midnight Line by Lee Child; and three by Dean Koontz: Fear Nothing, Whispers and Phantoms. I am blessed.
Ani Phyo was born in Nova Scotia in 1968 and grew up in upstate New York. She is of Korean descent. She graduated from Cornell and traveled quite a bit. She founded SmartMonkey Foods and SmartMonkey Media. She was a pioneer of the web, creating the world’s first online fashion show and a 14,000-page educational site for Simon & Schuster. She handled CG work on Virtuosity (1995), the early cyber film starring Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe. She has taught at the university level and worked as a consultant. I’m glad I sold the book because I was eating my heart out every time I looked at the cover.
