By Lambert Strether of Corrente.
Readers, I am in the midst of another Worksheet on the Democrat Party — this time categorizing candidates professionally and on #MedicareForAll suppport — and that always takes forever, even with an early start. So I’m going to finish that first, and then circle back here and add more more material. In the meantime, talk amongst yourselves! –lambert
P.S. I hope your Easter weekend was good. And I’m sorry Loyola of Chicago lost.
Readers, feel free to contact me at lambert [UNDERSCORE] strether [DOT] corrente [AT] yahoo [DOT] com, with (a) links, and even better (b) sources I should curate regularly, (c) how to send me a check if you are allergic to PayPal, and (d) to find out how to send me images of plants. Vegetables are fine! Fungi are deemed to be honorary plants! If you want your handle to appear as a credit, please place it at the start of your mail in parentheses: (thus). Otherwise, I will anonymize by using your initials. See the previous Water Cooler (with plant) here. Today’s plant, another cactus (EW):
EW writes: “A prickly pear cactus blooming in two colors in the foothills of the Sandia Mountains.” That photo really does make you feel the desert sun, doesn’t it?
Readers: Water Cooler is a standalone entity not covered by the NC fundraiser. So do feel free to use the dropdown and click the hat to make a contribution today or any day. Here is why: Regular positive feedback both makes me feel good and lets me know I’m on the right track with coverage. When I get no donations for five or ten days I get worried. More tangibly, a constant trickle of small donations helps me with expenses, and I factor that trickle in when setting fundraising goals. So if you see something you especially appreciate, do feel free to click the hat!
