Just got back from the Miami International Book Fair.
https://www.miamibookfair.com

Got to see Sonia Sotomayor interview by C-Span, saw David Cay Johnston on a panel talking about Trumpism, alas I missed April Ryan yesterday, and John Kerry will be here tomorrow.

OK. That is all. :D (What? I can be brief!) :mrgreen:

That might have been where that odd headline came from that I didn't click on today. A headline which said Sotomayor said Kavanaugh is part of Supreme Court "family".

It directly quoted her as having said the word "family". Everything else the reporter said.

I thought you thought briefs were underwear and you already had more than you needed

Anyway, Sonia is great. Saw her on Colbert I think it was.

BTW, I wasn't sure if SCOTUS justices had SS protection ... I think so, because I was standing about 20 feet from the C-Span tent where she was being interviewed, and in between me and her were two big burly guys with ear pieces, standing there with stoic expressions. (Not like I was going to charge up and ask for her autograph, or anything.)

Well, that and a bunch of other people watching her. :D

There was some guy at the fair hawking his book on "the cosmic key to everything". I walked up to him, shook his hand, and said "42". And then walked away. He looked at me strangely. I guess he's not a Douglas Adams fan. :D

As I said, John Kerry's supposed to be there today, but one day was enough. :D
