Oh well

WordPress just “improved” again by forcing the block-head editor on us. I sometimes think that IT people get off on making other people miserable.

Workout: a nice 5 mile (5.2 mile) walk:

God..this editor sucks.

Glute pain: mild..almost unremarkable and mostly in the final 1.5 miles or so.

Life moving forward..

Last night’s “debate” was an unmitigated disaster. No..Biden didn’t come across as fire and brimstone, but he was decent. But Trump…well, he probably appealed to, well, 40 percent of the voters. He did nothing to help himself.
This is a reasonable take:

At any rate, after watching this, and knowing that so many Americans will not only vote for Trump but positively adore him, I think we can clearly divide the country into two groups. There are those who will vote for Trump, and now I see nearly all of them as deplorables. I didn’t like Hillary Clinton using that word four years ago, but that was before we’d seen Trump’s performance as President. If you want him for another four years, then I think you’re either delusional or in love with tyrants (or both), and lack all political judgment.

The other group is, of course, those who will vote for Biden. Biden is clearly not the best the Democratic Party can offer, and he does seem a bit dotty. However, he won’t surround himself with sycophants and liars, and he may have a Democratic House and Senate to work with. If you’re a rational human being who doesn’t want this country destroyed, you have no choice but to vote for Biden.

It is bothersome that such a large percentage of Americans find Trump’s behavior not only tolerable but desirable.

I know that anyone who interviewed for one of our jobs behaved the way Trump did, they’d be shown the door very quickly. And ..perhaps that is part of the appeal?
Maybe some feel so burdened by life that they want the freedom to tell everyone to f***off without fear of consequence? Must be horrible position to be in.

Workout notes: somewhat subdued:
pull ups: sets of 2, 3, 4, 5 until I got to 50; decent quality.
bench press: 10 x 132, 7 x 154, 7 x 154 (all with pauses..that seems to work better even if it means lighter weight)
shoulder presses: 10 x 83, 10 x 83, 10 x 88 (manned up on the final set) seated
rows 3 sets of 10 x 60 single arm.
Trap bar dead lifts (deficit) 10 x 134, 10 x 184, 10 x 204 (all kind of easy..focused on form)
2:30 plank and then headstand.
