Reliving the trauma

“Indelible in the hippocampus is the laughter.” “100% certain.” “As sure as I am talking to you now.” These statements, from a victim of sexual assault, will be forever remembered as the words of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford in her testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Where did the forest go?

I recently met some old grammar school friends in Jim Thorpe, PA for a tour of the town and a possible rail trip along the scenic Lehigh Gorge. Our friend “Pocono Bob” lives there, and warned us the town may be busy. Busy was not the word for it; the town was packed.

Impressive primary turnout

Voter turnout for the New York State primary was impressive by recent historical standards. Some 1.5 million New Yorkers went to the polls, more than twice as many as voted in the midterm primary in 2014, suggesting an electorate that is more engaged than in the past, and more likely to participate in the election in November.
